Privacy Policy

The Accounting and Finance Association of Australia and New Zealand (AFAANZ) is a non-profit organisation that is committed to its objectives which include representing the interests of accounting and finance academics and other persons interested in accounting and finance education and research in Australia and New Zealand.

In meeting these objectives, AFAANZ receives information from and about members and those who register for its events or enter information on AFAANZ's website. This information may include a person’s business address and telephone number, personal address and telephone number, post office box details, information about professional interests and qualifications, credit card and transactional information, date of birth and other information of a personal nature such as catering preferences.

AFAANZ may use contact information to inform members, former members and those who have registered for events about the associations functions and events.  You may advise us when you register for an event that you do not wish to be informed about future events or whether you wish to be contacted by the associations premium sponsors. AFAANZ does not sell mailing lists or contact details to other organisations.

We may take photographs and may make audio and video recordings of our events. Please let us know before you attend an event if you do not wish to be identifiable in photographs or recordings which we may make available on our website or in other ways.

AFAANZ is committed to ensuring that the personal information held about you is maintained in a form that is accurate, complete and up to date. Please amend your membership details via the membership portal or contact us whenever there is a change to your personal information, or as soon as you become aware that the details we have about you require updating. AFAANZ will then take all reasonable steps to amend the information so that it is accurate and current.

AFAANZ will take all reasonable precautions to protect the privacy of your personal information. We cannot ensure the security of all information that you transmit to us over the internet and you do so at your own risk. However, once we receive your transmission, we will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your information is secure on systems controlled by AFAANZ.

In the course of meeting our objectives, we may provide information we hold about you to contractors and suppliers (such as event organisers and our publisher).  If we do so, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that these contractors and suppliers are subject to an appropriate privacy policy.

For further information about your privacy rights and obligations please see the Privacy Act. If you have any specific concerns or comments concerning privacy issues, please contact the AFAANZ office on the contact form on our website.
