How We Use the Information We Collect & Disclosure of Your Personal Data

There are legal grounds that enable data processing, and we will use your personal data in accordance with this Privacy Policy and applicable data protection legislation, including the General Data Protection Regulation (2016/679/EU) ("GDPR") for individuals located in the European Economic Area. Below are the most relevant grounds you should be aware of with respect to FS-ISAC’s legal bases for using or disclosing your personal data:

FS-ISAC may process any of your information, which in some cases includes personal data, in the following situations:

  1. With your consent. We may transmit your personal data to a third-party when you give us express permission to do so. For example, this may occur when we complete a transaction on your behalf or at your request.
  1. To enter into or to fulfill a contract. We may use your personal data when necessary to meet a contractual obligation we owe you, including to provide you with access to your account or other products or services you have signed up for, including for events, summits, trainings and webinars. Our delivery of specific products or services may be subject to additional privacy practices, including our event Privacy Notice.
  1. For a legitimate interest. We may use your personal data where processing will be necessary to achieve FS-ISAC’s business objectives or to facilitate a benefit to you or someone else. Where we want to rely on legitimate interests as a legal basis to process personal data of individuals from the European Economic Area, we will carry out a balancing test between our legitimate interests and your privacy rights.
  1. With our authorized service providers. FS-ISAC may share your personal data with our authorized service providers in the United States that perform certain services and process personal data on our behalf, including for IT and system administration services. These services may also include providing customer service and marketing assistance, performing business and sales analysis, supporting FS-ISAC Platform’s functionality, delivering summits/trainings/webinars and supporting contests, sweepstakes, surveys and other features offered through our website. In addition, we may share your personal data with professional advisers, acting as processors or joint controllers, including lawyers, auditors and insurers based in the United States and the United Kingdom who provide consultancy, legal, and insurance services. These service providers may have access to personal data needed to perform their functions but are not permitted to share or use such information for any other purposes.
  1. In connection with a substantial corporate transaction, such as the sale of our business; a divestiture, merger, consolidation, or asset sale; or in the event of bankruptcy. If another company acquires FS-ISAC, that company will take on all responsibility for the information we collect, including personal data, and it will assume all rights and obligations with respect to that information. Should this happen, the acquiring company may implement its own policies with respect to your privacy rights.
  1. If we are required to disclose information by law. FS-ISAC may be obligated to disclose a website user’s personal information, if directed by a court of law or other governmental entity. Without limiting the foregoing, we reserve the right to disclose such information where we have a good faith basis to believe that such action is necessary to: (a) comply with applicable laws, regulations, court orders, government and law enforcement agencies’ requests; (b) protect and defend FS-ISAC’s or third-party's rights and property, or safety of FS-ISAC, our website users, our employees, or others; (c) prevent, detect, investigate and take measures against criminal activity, fraud and misuse or unauthorized use of our services and/or to enforce other agreements or policies; and/or (d) protect your personal safety or property or that of the public. In the event that your information is disclosed, we will comply with the law and make commercially reasonable efforts to notify

Data Retention

We will save your personal data in accordance with our data retention policy and, generally, only as necessary to allow you access to the FS-ISAC Platform and for us to then maintain any information for our necessity to meet our contractual obligations to you or for our legitimate interests, including for statute of limitation purposes.

Access to Your Information and Other Rights (EEA Individuals Only)

If you are an individual located in the European Economic Area, you are entitled to receive a copy of the personal data that we hold about you and information about the processing thereof. Unless your request is unreasonably repetitive or otherwise unduly burdensome, we will provide this data to you free of charge. Please note that in order to be able to answer your request, we will need to be able to establish your identity in a manner that is reasonable under the circumstances.

If you believe that any personal data we are processing is inaccurate please send an email with your specific request to our Chief Privacy Officer at privacy@fsisac.com. We will work with you to make any corrections deemed necessary. We may need to verify the accuracy of new data and we may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.

You have the right to request that FS-ISAC restricts the processing of your personal data under certain conditions, for example, if you contest the accuracy of the personal data, the processing may be restricted for a period enabling FS-ISAC to verify the accuracy of the personal data or if FS-ISAC no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing but you require the personal data for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

You have the right to have your personal data deleted without undue delay and FS-ISAC is obliged to delete your personal data without undue delay if, for example the personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purpose for which it was collected or otherwise processed. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see above), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons, including for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims, which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.

If you provide your email address to FS-ISAC, you will always have the opportunity to opt out of receiving email newsletters and promotions through the unsubscribe link in the email communications or by logging into and changing the preferences for your user account. We may send you other types of transactional and relationship e-mail communications, such as service announcements, administrative notices, and surveys, without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them. Please note that changing information in your account, or otherwise opting out of receipt of promotional email communications will only affect future activities or communications from us. If we have already provided your information to a third-party (such as a credit card processing partner) before you changed your preferences or updated your information, you may have to change your preferences directly with that third-party.

You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to FS-ISAC's processing of your personal data if the processing is based on legitimate interests. If you object to such processing, FS-ISAC will no longer be entitled to process your personal data based on such legal basis, unless FS-ISAC can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which overrides your interests, rights and freedom or if it is conducted for the establishment, exercise or defense of a legal claim. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes.

You have, under certain conditions, the right to receive the personal data concerning you and which you have provided to FS-ISAC, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit such personal data to another data controller without FS-ISAC trying to prevent this, where FS-ISAC's processing of your personal data is based on a contract or consent and the processing is carried out by automated means. In such case you have the right to request that the personal data shall be transmitted from FS-ISAC directly to another data controller, where technically feasible.

You also have the right to withdraw your consent, if applicable. If you withdraw your consent, please note that this does not affect the lawfulness of the processing based on your consent before its withdrawal and that FS-ISAC may, under certain circumstances, have another legal ground for the processing and therefore may be entitled to continue the processing.

If you would like to exercise your rights, you may contact us on the contact details provided at the top of this Privacy Policy. We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

If you are unhappy with our processing of your personal data you may lodge a complaint with a competent supervisory authority, for example in the country of your habitual residence, place of work or of an alleged infringement of the General Data Protection or other applicable data privacy laws.

Securing Your Information

FS-ISAC takes a range of security measures designed to protect your personal data and keep it confidential (unless it is non-confidential by nature) and free from any unauthorized alteration.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. As the safety and security of your information also depends on the precautions you take, we ask you not to share your password with anyone.

Third-Parties and Other Information Collectors

Except as otherwise expressly included in this Privacy Policy, this document only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you or you provide to us in the course of using the FS- ISAC Platform. To the extent that you disclose your information to other parties through our website, different rules may apply to their use, collection and disclosure of the personal information you disclose to them. Since we do not control the information use, collection, or disclosure policies of third-parties, you are subject to their privacy policies.

Our website may include links to third-party websites. Once you have used these links to leave our website, you should note that we do not have any control over third-party websites. We are not responsible for the content of such websites or the protection and privacy of any information which you provide while visiting such sites.

Transfer of personal information to countries outside the EEA (EEA Individuals Only)

FS-ISAC is established in Virginia, USA. If you are located in the EEA, your personal data is therefore processed outside the European Economic Area ("EEA").

Some of the third-parties identified above may also be located outside the EU/EEA, in which case we will take all necessary steps required under applicable law in order for such transfer of information across borders to be compliant with applicable law. In cases where there is no adequacy decision by the Commission, this may for example include the use of EU model clauses (under Article 46.2 of the GDPR) or ensuring that the recipient is certified under the US-EU Privacy Shield Framework (under Article 45 of the GDPR). You may receive a copy of the relevant safeguards by contacting FS-ISAC using the contact details set forth above in this Privacy Policy.
