ICN conducts a business matching service and obtains information from local industry participants, for example manufacturers of products or suppliers of services, which they provide and are prepared to release to other local industry participants about their particular capabilities or experience and the goods they produce or the services they provide.
The information provided by industry participants is stored in a database maintained by ICN which ICN consultants may access for the purpose of identifying opportunities for collaboration or consortium development or other business matching of local industry participants based on what goods, services, capabilities or experience the industry participant has stated it is looking for when registering with the business matching service and providing information about themselves.
The information provided to ICN by the industry participant is generally of a business rather than personal nature; however some information may be private in nature.
ICN recognises the importance of your privacy and understands your concerns about the security of the personal information you provide to us.
ICN complies with the National Privacy Principles (“NPP’s”) as contained in the Privacy Act 1988. The NPP’s detail how personal information is collected, used, stored and destroyed and how an individual may gain access to personal information held about them.
This policy details how ICN manages your personal information, sets out some of your privacy rights in relation to personal information, and advises how you can contact us with privacy queries. Our policy is not aimed at curtailing the flow of business or business information, but simply ensuring personal information is handled in accordance with the Privacy Laws.
