Offshore Personal Information Guidelines

Purpose

Cancer Council Queensland (CCQ) acknowledges the importance of protecting personal information and has taken reasonable steps to ensure that your information is used by third parties, including overseas service providers, securely and in accordance with the terms of its Privacy Policy.

This guideline supports CCQ’s Privacy Policy.  Terms defined in the Privacy Policy will have the same meaning in this Guideline.

Process

CCQ may from time to time enter into contractual arrangements with third party service providers to assist CCQ with providing our goods and services to you.  As a result personal information provided to CCQ may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside Australia.

If you are a guest at one of our lodges or are in some way involved in a conference that is associated with us your personal information may be transferred to and stored in the United States of America.  If you participate in our CancerConnect program your personal information may be transferred to and stored in New Zealand.  If you are a Supporter (as defined in paragraph 7.1 of the Privacy Policy) your personal information provided to CCQ may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside Australia, including but not limited to New Zealand, Netherlands, China, Singapore, Hong Kong, Ireland, Canada, United States of America, France and the United Kingdom.

At any given time some or all of CCQ’s electronic data (with the exception of data held by the Queensland Cancer Registry) may be stored in and/or processed in the cloud.  Consequently, your personal information may be transferred to our offshore IT service providers.  The countries in which your personal information may be stored and/or processed include Singapore, Hong Kong, Ireland, Canada, Netherlands, and the United States of America.  However, it is not always possible to know in which countries your information may be held.

Personal information may also be processed by staff or by other third parties operating outside Australia who work for us or for one of our suppliers, agents, partners or other Cancer Councils.

We may store your information in cloud or other types of networked or electronic storage.  As electronic or networked storage can be accessed from various countries via an internet connection, it is not always practicable to know in which country your information may be held.  If your information is stored in this way, disclosures may occur in countries other than those listed.
