International Visitors

The ISACA-Milwaukee Chapter is located in the state of Wisconsin in the United States. If you are providing personally identifiable information and are not a resident of the United States, your country’s laws governing data collection and use may differ from those in the United States; in particular, U.S. laws may not provide the same level of protection as those in your own country. By providing information to ISACA-MILWAUKEE, you are transferring your personal data to the United States, and you consent to the transfer to, retention of, and processing of your data in the United States.

Collection of Personally Identifiable Information

ISACA-MILWAUKEE collects personally identifiable information, such as e-mail addresses, phone numbers, credit card and other payment information, and business and home addresses, about you only when you voluntarily provide such information.

Information is collected and maintained from members, exam candidates, those who have been certified by ISACA, applicants, event attendees, speakers, participants in ISACA-MILWAUKEE programs, purchasers of ISACA-MILWAUKEE products and services, current and past web site users, survey respondents, and others. To the extent that information requested is not required for your participation in a given ISACA-MILWAUKEE program, you will be told which information is optional. Should you fail to provide optional information, certain ISACA-MILWAUKEE programs or features may not be available to you.

This means that ISACA-MILWAUKEE will never disclose your name, e-mail address, street address or phone number to third parties not affiliated with ISACA-MILWAUKEE without your consent.
