The International Congress and Convention Association – ICCA is the global community and knowledge hub for the international association meetings industry. ICCA’s vision is to shape the future and value of international association meetings. ICCA’s Vision and Mission critically depend on the provision of accurate, relevant data and on building valuable personal connections between members of our community (ICCA members and non-member associations).
Legal framework for dealing with data
ICCA collects and works with personal data of staff, ICCA member organisations and non-ICCA member organisations, such as but not limited to associations, press, non-member suppliers and other stakeholders in the international (association) meetings industry.
ICCA will treat personal data in a safe manner and respects the privacy of those involved. ICCA commits to the following principles:
- Lawfulness, fairness and transparency
- Personal data will be processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner.
- Foundation and purpose limitation
ICCA ensures that personal data are collected and processed only for specific, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes.
ICCA processes only data that is adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed.
Personal data will be kept no longer than is necessary. Keeping of personal data can be necessary for ICCA to perform its core duties or to comply with legal obligations.
Integrity and confidentiality
Personal data are processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security of the personal data, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures.
Sharing with third parties
Whenever ICCA cooperates with external parties that involves the processing of personal data, ICCA will make an agreement that clearly states the requirements that must be met for the transfer of this data. These agreements comply with privacy legislation.
While achieving the purpose for which the personal data are processed, the infringement of privacy will be limited as much as possible.
The breach of the interest of the data subject may not be disproportionate in relation to the purpose to be served.
The rights of data subjects
ICCA honors all rights of those involved.
