Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy discloses the Medical Technology Association of Australia Ltd (MTAA) information collection and dissemination practices.

Privacy Protections and Use of Information

MTAA will not disclose or share personal information collected on its web sites with any third party, except as required by law and/or pursuant to a governmental request, or as necessary to provide services to support its software solutions. MTAA will never use information collected via the Aptify system for any purposes other than those specifically designated by its customers.

Aggregate Data

We may share reports with third parties based on aggregated data of our customers. Aggregated member data does not include any personally identifiable information about customers or invitees. For example, these reports will not include a personal or organisation name. Information about members is aggregated for the purposes of determining successful event benchmarks and other similar activities.

Event Registration

When you register for an event on MTAA site, you have granted permission to release the information you entered as an invitee to the customer. Standard credit card fees apply.

Special Circumstances

We may disclose personal information when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who is violating our terms of use or may be causing injury to or interference with other users or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities.

Cookies

A cookie is a small data file that some web sites write to your hard drive when you visit them. A cookie may contain information like a user ID that allows the site to track which web pages you have visited. The only personal information a cookie contains is information you decide to supply. A cookie cannot read data from your hard drive or cookie files created by other web sites. We use cookies to save your username so you do not have to retype each time; and to "time-out" your session if it is idle for a long period of time.

IP Addresses

We may use your IP address to diagnose problems with our servers and administer our web site.

eCommerce

If you are registering for a paid event as an invitee, we may request payment information to conclude the transaction as well as your mailing address or other contact information to ensure authentication and proper delivery. We use industry-standard secure socket layer (SSL) encryption. We do not sell or rent your personal financial information. When you engage in an eCommerce transaction on our site using a credit card, your credit card information, including the number and expiration date and your billing addresses, is passed onto the merchant with whom the transaction was placed; only MTAA and the merchant with whom you placed the order has access to your credit card information. Your credit card information is stored with each order in the Aptify system just long enough to fully process your transaction. After the transaction has completed, your credit card information is removed from our system for security reasons. You can decline to provide credit card information and any other information at our site at any time. If you should choose to withhold requested information; however, we may not be able to provide you with the full spectrum of our services. Standard credit card fees apply.

Web Site Links

Our site contains links to other web sites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of these web sites.

Security Procedures

MTAA has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of information under our control. We protect secure data with industry-standard firewall and password protection systems. We periodically review and improve our security and privacy policies as necessary. We only allow pre-authorised individuals access to our servers and to information provided by our members.

Changes

We reserve the right to change this policy, so please check back periodically to review any changes to this policy.

We do everything we can to protect the privacy of our Members. If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy, the practices of this site, or dealings with this site, please contact us.
