Who we are

We are the officers of Technical Committee 9 of the International Federation for Information Processing, focussing on ICT and Society.

Our website address is: http://www.ifiptc9.org

Privacy statement: what we do with your personal data

Your privacy is important to us and we take great care to protect it. You can visit our website without giving us your personal data.

Who we share your data with

As a member of an IFIP Working Group your name, email address and affiliation are shared with IFIP Secretariat in Vienna, who will list only your name and country on the IFIP website.  No other data is shared with any other body – including TC9. If you choose to subscribe to the TC9 Newsletter, however, your name, email address and affiliation, and WG Membership will be stored in the database of this website.  No other information is collected.

For users that are registered on our website (Members of an IFIP TC9 WG or National Representatives on TC9), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What we do with your personal data

We collect your personal details when you fill in a form on our website. When you give us your information, you also agree to:

1. Allow your details to be combined into one single record containing your basic details. No data will be shared with anyone outside TC9 or any other organisation. The data collected will be your first name, last name, email address, affiliation (institution or organisation), and which Working Group you are a member of, or if you are a National Representative.

2. Allow us to send you an annual Newsletter, and any ‘extraordinary’ additional Newsletter communication, from time to time. We undertake to ensure such additional communication is kept to a minimum.

3. Allow us to use your information to enroll you into the Members Area of the TC9 website, when it is launched, where information, documents, and links will be shared that are for Working Group members and National Representatives only.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data
