All personal information collected, held or shared by ASCC must be done so in accordance with this Privacy Policy. ASCC retains the right to take reasonable steps to ensure that its Privacy Policy is properly adhered to.

In every department or function of ASCC where personal information is collected, the person to whom the information is given or the application is addressed is responsible for ensuring compliance with this Privacy Policy.

It is the responsibility of all employees and other relevant parties to ensure that they understand and adhere to the Privacy Policy implemented by ASCC and that they maintain up-to-date knowledge of changes or any new privacy policies and procedures.
