The Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants seeks only to collect and keep such information as is required for the purposes of our business. In the case of personal data (which is information about living individuals from which it is possible to identify that individual), we seek to comply fully with the provisions of the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance.
We will process the collected personal data for the purpose of maintaining your registration for use of our forums and discussion groups. In addition, we may use the collected data for our statistical research and analysis, and for our keeping you informed of our services.
We value all personal data received by us and do our best to maintain your privacy. We will not transfer or disclose your personal information to any third party except with your prior consent, or as required by law, or in the following circumstances:
- To any personnel, agent, adviser, auditor, contractor or service provider who provides services or advice to us in connection with our operations insofar as it is required to enable us to provide, or assist us in providing, our services; or
- To our communications and operations partners with whom we share information for the purpose of providing you with updates and information, unless you have chosen not to receive updating news communications.
We will use such secured encryption systems as are appropriate for the collection of your personal information over the Internet, based on the type of information being collected. Unfortunately, these security measures are not 100% secure and it is possible that others may intercept the information you are sending.
