Your personal data* will be collected, stored and processed by Sang-ngak-chö-dzong and Aro Gar, Inc. purely for the purposes necessary to run the company. The company has a legal obligation to hold a list of its members and may need to contact them at certain times in line with its constitution or company law. Your personal details will be visible only to other members and administrators of the company having a justifiable need.
Personal data will not be shared with any outside organisations except when legally required to do so by external regulatory bodies or enforcement agencies. The exception to this is that data will be shared between Sang-ngak-chö-dzong and its sister charity in the USA, Aro Gar inc. because both organisations collaborate across national boundaries to provide the worldwide Aro web environment, the international sangha contact lists, and other shared international activity.
Any further need to share your personal data will only occur if we seek and obtain your prior permission.
We will undertake all reasonable precautions to keep your personal data safe, and will notify you as soon as possible if we become aware of any breach of data security measures.
Should you cease to be a member of Sang-ngak-chö-dzong your personal record will be retained for the period required by company law, after which time it will be permanently deleted.
You may at any time contact us to request that your personal data is deleted, but you should be aware that it will be impossible for us to continue to offer you the rights of membership under these circumstances, and therefore you will be automatically relinquishing your membership.
