ASMAA respects your privacy
ASMAA ALGARVE SURF AND MARINE ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATION (ASMAA) registered in Portugal with registration number 510 381 952 is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. The privacy statement below is for this website: www.asmaa-algarve.org
We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement.
This Privacy Statement informs you of our privacy practices and of the choices you can make about the way information about you, including from your online activity is collected and how that information is used by ASMAA. Our aim is to safeguard your privacy whilst providing a personalised and valuable service. Collecting personal information is necessary if we are to satisfy the expectations and requirements of our supporters.
We appreciate that you don’t want the personal information you provide to us distributed indiscriminately and here we explain how we use your personal information and let you know what rights you have regarding its use.
This statement is readily available on our asmaa-algarve.org home page and at the bottom of every web page on this site.
In the development of ASMAA’s privacy policies and standards, we respect and take into account the major principles and frameworks around the world, including the OECD Guidelines on the Protection of Privacy and Transborder Flows, EU Directive 95/46/EC, APEC Privacy Framework, and the Madrid Resolution on International Privacy Standards and the Australian Privacy Principles under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).
In some areas of our website, we ask you to provide personal information that will enable us to enhance your site visit or contact you with information you request or that may be of interest to you, e.g. when you subscribe to our newsletters, make a donation, or take an online action or sign a petition or survey. Examples of your personal information include your name, postal address, phone number and email address.
How is the information used?
We’ll only send you information about our work by email where you’ve given us your consent to do so.
We may send you any information we believe may be of interest to you. For example, where you have given consent to be contacted by email, we’ll normally sign you up to receive our regular email communications – mostly calls to take action or donate to a campaign – and we try to not send more than twice a month, although during a campaign it may be sent more often if a situation warrants it. You may also receive a welcome email letting you know about other ways to support us.
Emails we send you will always give you the chance to opt out of receiving further emails or alternatively, you can contact us to let us know. We don’t send out random, untargeted emails, known as spam.
Under normal circumstances, ASMAA will never disclose any of your personally identifiable information to any third party.
We collect information about the date and time in which our web site was accessed and the internet address of the server from which you linked to our site. This may be linked to personal data you have given us. We use this data to improve our site performance and to evaluate traffic statistics, such as the times of day and days of week at which we see peak traffic, and to assess the relative popularity of different areas of the site.
The accuracy of your information is important to us. If you change email address or if any of the other information we hold is inaccurate or out of date please contact us . Any information we hold that is incorrect will be amended or deleted promptly.
We place great importance on the security of your personal information and we always try to take appropriate precautions to protect it.
Despite all of our precautions however, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. So, whilst we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information which you disclose to us online and you must understand that you do so at your own risk.
We are also concerned to protect your personal information off-line. We take steps to ensure that access to personal information is restricted to employees who need it. All ASMAA employees who handle personal information are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Our employees are notified and reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure your information is protected.
We cannot, however, be responsible for the theft, destruction or inadvertent disclosure of your personal information whether we hold it on or off-line.
