AU-IBAR is committed to protecting individual privacy and securing the personal information made available by users of AU-IBAR web applications (any application that is accessible using web browser, including a website).
What does AU-IBAR do with the information you provide
Providing information is your choice. When you undertake certain actions on our web applications, such as signing up for our email newsletter, creating a user account for our web applications or filling in a form to register your interest in our activities, you knowingly provide us with personal information about you, such as your name and email address.
In this event, AU-IBAR will store this information securely, and will not share, rent or sell it to any other organization for their marketing purposes. However, we reserve the right to share this information with third parties for the purpose of carrying out communications activities on behalf of AU-IBAR. You will only be contacted by AU-IBAR for purposes related to the work of AU-IBAR and you can request to have your name removed from our mailing list at any time (see below how to opt out).
Through the use of data such as your email address, we can target messages for you on web applications and social media platforms. If you would not like your data to be used in this way, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or unsubscribe from the listing where possible.
Additionally, if you upload content to an AU-IBAR web application or social media platform, we will be able to see certain information, for example when you submit photographs or pdf documents, we can see which type of camera you used, the time/date stamp, and location if that is available. This information might be used to perform verification checks, but will not be shared beyond the AU-IBAR social media team.
Users who provide personal data e.g. email address, photographs or document via AU-IBAR web applications or social media platforms may opt out directly from their device settings or by sending an email to email@example.com Users of subscriptions for newsletters may unsubscribe to opt out from receiving e-newsletters and other email updates. Each email sent by AU-IBAR includes an option to remove your address from the mailing list and you may also opt out by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Responsibilities of Users
AU-IBAR may enable its stakeholders and community to share their personal information, such as photos and videos, with the public on its web applications. This type of material is generally defined as User Generated Content (UGC).
Users of AU-IBAR web applications acknowledge that such content is treated as being non-proprietary and non- confidential except as otherwise agreed or stated in the web application. If you send non-proprietary and non-confidential material to us, either via email, by tagging content on a social network, or via a specifically designed upload site, you are granting AU-IBAR the irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide right to use, reproduce, modify and publish such material elsewhere in its web applications and publications. Furthermore, you grant AU-IBAR the right to use the name that you submit in connection with such material. However you still own and can continue to use your content as you like including the ability to also allow others to use it.
When we ask our community to share non-proprietary and non-confidential content with us, we explain how we intend to use the content. Mostly, we will re-share content on our social media channels or on our web applications. If it is particularly strong, we may use content shared with us on AU-IBAR promotional materials. In those cases, we will attempt to contact you to discuss whether you agree for it to be used, and to ask whether and how you would like to be credited.
AU-IBAR does not pay for nor does it generate any revenue from selling or licensing individual pieces of UGC.
