Central to the success of HDAA is our commitment to our members and clients. We honour without reservation our obligation to respect and protect the privacy of the personal information of individuals with whom we deal.

Information We Collect

Whenever it is reasonable and practicable to do so, we only collect information about you directly from you. We collect personal information about you which is reasonably necessary to provide you or in having provided you with products and services. Such information is usually collected through the applications and approaches you make or have made to us including the maintenance of your contact details. Other methods include any responses you have made to us through Member Requests and/or HDAA and Industry surveys and the like.

Information Not Collected

We do not collect sensitive information about you unless required by applicable laws or rules. Sensitive information includes information relating to race; political or religious beliefs; sexual preferences; criminal convictions; membership of professional or trade associations or unions; and health information.

How the Information is Used

We only use and disclose personal information about you for the purpose for which it was disclosed to us or related purposes which would reasonably be expected without your permission. For example, we may from time to time use your personal information to provide information about products and services, which we expect, may be of interest to you. However, we do respect your right to ask us not to do this.

Keeping Information Accurate

We take all reasonable steps to ensure that all information we hold is as accurate as possible. You are able to contact us at any time and ask for its correction if you feel the information we have about you is inaccurate or incomplete. In addition to their intended purpose, the methods we use in collecting information or as a natural by-product of interacting with us, are used to assist in maintaining the accuracy of your records.

Keeping Information Secure

We use security procedures and the latest technology to protect the information we hold. Access to and use of personal information within HDAA is appropriately limited to prevent misuse or unlawful disclosure of the information.
