The ASEAN Secretariat will endeavour to protect Website Users’ privacy and any personally identifiable information that may be collected from and/or provided by Users while visiting and using, as registered users, the Website (either on a computer, laptop or mobile).
The ASEAN Secretariat collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. This enables the ASEAN Secretariat to better understand how visitors use the Website. From time to time, the ASEAN Secretariat may release non-personally- identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
The ASEAN Secretariat also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in Users. The ASEAN Secretariat only discloses logged in Users’ IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
When registering on ASEAN Access, as appropriate, Users may be asked to enter their name, email address, personal and business mailing address, phone number, company website or other details. The ASEAN Secretariat collects information from Users when Users register on the Website. If a User is asked to provide more information or data post-registration, for example, company size, company description, and if the User agrees to provide this information and data and saves the information or any changes made to the previously provided information, this data will also be collected by the ASEAN Secretariat.
The security of Users Personal Information is important the ASEAN Secretariat, but it is important to note that no method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While the ASEAN Access strives to use commercially acceptable means to protect personal data, absolute security cannot be guaranteed.
