The ISO Club is a not-for-profit organisation that arranges regular meetings for members and respects the privacy of everyone who visits the website.

ISO Club is controlled by an honorary executive elected by members attending the Annual General Meeting normally held in November.

ISO Club is aware of the Victorian Information Privacy Act 2000 Act No. 98/2000 and is committed to complying with the Information Privacy Principles in that Act.

This statement outlines the privacy policy and practices of the ISO Club website.

As part of our service to members we intend to link websites that are related to member companies or individuals which have publicly available websites

Our Privacy Policy does not apply to linked websites, but we do not link knowingly to sites that are privacy-invasive.

When you link to another site, the privacy statement will override that of ISO Club and linking with other websites through that of ISO Club shall be deemed to be the linkers’ intention to familiarise with its privacy policy.

Anonymity assured

You can access and browse the ISO Club website anonymously, without disclosing your personal information.

  • Monitoring of rejected emails sent to a general population of ISO Club members
