The IHTSDO gathers and uses certain information about individuals and organizations. These include members, suppliers, business contacts, employees and other people the organization has a relationship with or may need to contact.
This policy describes how this personal data must be collected, handled and stored to meet the organization's data protection standards, and to comply with most laws across Member countries.
Why this policy exists
This data protection policy ensures the IHTSDO:
- Complies with data protection laws and follows good practice
- Protects the rights of staff, members and partners
- Is open about how it stores and processes individuals' and other organizations' data
- Protects itself from the risks of a data breach
Most data protection laws are in place to describe how organizations must collect, handle and store personal information.
Naturally, the final point is less relevant directly to the IHTSDO due to its global nature and audience and this needs to be reviewed by legal to understand what the IHTSDO must comply to.
