Macadamian limits the amount and type of information gathered to what is necessary for the identified purpose of collecting that information.
Limiting Use, Disclosure and Retention
Macadamian uses and discloses personal information only for the purpose or purposes for which it was collected, unless the individual consents to its use or disclosure for other purposes. In certain circumstances personal information can be collected, used or disclosed without the knowledge and consent of the individual, such as in the case of an emergency where the life, health, or security of an individual is threatened.
Safeguarding Personal Information
Macadamian strives to protect personal information, both on-line and offline, at all times. Macadamian has implemented generally accepted technological and operational security systems to protect personally identifiable information. Personal information we collect is stored in password-controlled servers with limited access, and we use a variety of technologies and procedures to help protect this information from loss or misuse, and from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. All hard copies of personally identifiable information kept in locked cabinets and access to this information is limited on a ‘needs to know’ basis only.
We will obtain your consent to collect, use, or disclose personal information except where we are authorized or required by law.
Accuracy and Access
Macadamian strives to ensure that all personal data held by the organization is accurate, complete and relevant, based on the most recent information available. Databases used to identify potential candidates for research purposes are updated periodically and individuals are removed from the database upon their request to no longer participate.
Upon written request and authentication of identity, we will provide you with your personal information under our control, information about the ways in which that information is being used, as well as have your modify/update/delete any data we have about you.
