Global Supply Chain Group (GSCG) is an innovative, insights-based business. GSCG recognizes its ethical, legal and commercial obligations to protect the interests of those who trust it with personal information, and has implemented formal policies and operational safeguards to ensure that its obligations in this regard are met.
This policy is designed to provide specific assurances to several audiences, including:
• GSCG clients who wish to work with a consulting firm that measurably meets or exceeds the privacy compliance requirements of the jurisdictions in which it operates.
• Auditors and Regulators seeking to confirm that GSCG is in compliance with the Privacy Act 1988 as amended from time to time. http://www.comlaw.gov.au/Details/C2012C00414/Html/Text
• Consultants considering sharing their personal information with GSCG, who seek assurance as to how that information would be managed, shared and safeguarded in a responsible way which protects their interests
• Directors, Affiliates, Members, Employees and Subcontractors to GSCG who wish to understand their own responsibilities and obligations as they carry out their functions within the GSCG’s framework
Personal Information (PI) is defined broadly as any information which describes any part of a person’s identity, physical being (eg: physical location), disability, medical condition, genealogy, origins, status, history, actions, associations, or opinions, whether of a professional, financial, transactional, social or private nature.
Some types of Personal Information (such as racial or ethnic origin) falls under the definition of Sensitive Information and must be handled more rigorously than other PI. Refer directly to the Privacy Act 1988 as amended to stay abreast of evolving legislative definitions.
GSCG stores the personal information it collects on Google’s cloud data service Google Drive and/or Microsoft’s OneDrive. GSCG uses email services of Google, Microsoft, or other global providers located in USA or Australia. GSCG used webhosting services located in Australia, USA or Western Europe.
GSCG advises all parties that the information they disclose to GSCG passes through wires and servers owned by these third parties, and, as evidenced by data breaches in Optus (late 2022) irrespective of strict controls they exercise on information security, this information could be accessible to third parties due to no fault of GSCG.
GSCG makes every attempt within its power to secure this information as and when it comes into the possession of GSCG, but GSCG cannot take any responsibility to guarantee its security. If a client wishes GSCG to use its own servers, PCs and premises to safeguard its information, GSCG follows its legitimate directions for information security.
GSCG may track user email behaviour from all subscriber and general email accounts in relation to the way users read and respond to email from GSCG campaign management tools (for example, recipients of Supply Chain Commentary Review, meeting invitations, or general announcements and correspondence). Information is collected such as whether or not the campaign email has been read, and if so how many times it was opened, from which device, at what time, at which geographical location, who the user forwarded the material on to, and how many times it was opened by that reader, and so on. In consenting to receive email from the GSCG campaign management tool, receivers of GSCG communication provide their consent for their reading history to be tracked in this way. GSCG engages in this industry-standard email direct marketing tracking behaviour as a non-intrusive means of gauging reader interest in GSCG communications and content publications, with the aim of improving the relevance of these communications to subscribers and readers.
