This privacy statement has been prepared in order to demonstrate the commitment of

No superfluous Data Collection
The AFS aims to collect as little information as it can, only collecting the data which is necessary to maintain and improve its service to members.

Collection of Personal Information
Information will be collected by means of registration or application for membership forms provided to prospective members and current members.
Information will not be collected by the club without the member's consent.

What personally identifiable information will be collected?
* Your name, address and telephone number, plus your email address (see Email Management).

The period for which the information will be held
* For as long as you are a member of the club plus 1 year to allow for your late renewal.

The information collected may be used for the following purposes
* To send you the AFS Journal and other club information.
* To register you with the Australian Fuchsia Society Inc.

Disclosure of personal information
* The AFS will not provide your information to any third party by way of gift, sale, or exchange.
* In the unlikely event of an investigation it will, however, provide information to a law
   enforcement agency, if they have exercised a warrant for the inspection of its records.

The AFS uses reasonable precautions to keep the personal information disclosed to it secure.

The AFS offers members the opportunity to view all information that it maintains about them and to have any inaccuracies in this information corrected. It may ask for identification in the interest of security.

Email Management
The AFS will record your email address on the premise that it will be used solely for society business, e.g. notices of functions/issues that occur between journals.
The AFS will not use your email address for any other purpose and will not disclose it without your consent.
