The Hong Kong Anti Drug Cadet Corps (HKADCC) understands and appreciates that members may be concerned about their privacy and about the confidentiality and security of information the HKADCC may gain about them. The HKADCC is committed to protecting members’ privacy and to complying with the Hong Kong Privacy Laws. This policy sets out the HKADCC’s information handling practices and procedures.
Generally speaking, the HKADCC collects information about members from database update forms and registration forms so the type of information which the HKADCC collects about members will depend on how members use the services offered by the HKADCC.
Use and disclosure of information
Personal information which a member supplies is collected by the HKADCC for use in connection with membership services. Such uses include matters related to the processing of membership application forms, the provision of membership and services. Information provided in surveys that are conducted from time to time is generally used for statistical purposes. The HKADCC will not disclose personal information concerning a member to parties outside of the HKADCC, other than for a purpose made known to a member and to which a member has consented. Please note that the information provided by members may be disclosed to the HKADCC’s servants, agents, contractors or third party service providers who provide administrative, telecommunications, computer or other services to the HKADCC in connection with its operations and who are under duties to the HKADCC to keep such information confidential and secure.
The HKADCC maintains strict standards and security procedures to prevent unauthorised access to members’ personal information and to ensure correct use of information.
Member access to information
The HKADCC will always try to maintain accurate, complete and up-to-date information regarding members. There are procedures in place which facilitate amendments and verification of personal information. If a person thinks that their personal information which is retained by the HKADCC may require changing or updating, they should contact the Webmaster. The HKADCC will then take all reasonable steps to correct the information so that it is accurate, complete and up-to-date.
If a person has a complaint regarding the way in which their personal information is being handled by the HKADCC, they should contact the HKADCC in the first instance. If the parties are unable to reach a satisfactory solution through negotiation, the person may wish to request an independent person to investigate the complaint such as the Privacy Commissioner.
