We record and use the contact information from the registration form and use it to contact you and to send you information about ISOC-AU. We occasionally include promotional material from our sponsors in these mailings. Any financial information that you provide is recorded and is used only to bill you for membership and/or renewals.
We may run online or offline surveys and ask members for demographic information (like postcode, age, or other interests). This information helps us understand how to better serve our members.
