Use of your Personal Information

Your personal information is collected for the purposes of processing and documentation, statistics and marketing, and as reference in any of our materials for promotion and advertising, as well as in future communications with you. Also, collecting this information serves as a way to limit abuse of the system, as it helps us detect duplicate or “shill” accounts. The personal information you provided during registration is never displayed publicly without your consent. Note, however, that by answering our feedback forms and allowing interviews with you where your name, employer name, and job title are visible, you expressly consent and allow us to use this information as reference in our marketing and promotional materials.

We ask for your city, state, zip code, and country. You will provide us with your home and/or office street address and telephone number. We may use this information to contact you in the unlikely event that we need to get in touch and your email address is not working. We require that you provide your real first and last names. Your account name or first name may be displayed throughout the back-end system alongside your contributions and in the User Directory and Who’s On pages. Your last name is never displayed but is needed to help us understand and keep track of who is using our system. Our system is generally stored and accessed at the ARIVA ACADEMY PHILIPPINES INC. located in Bicutan, Parañaque City.

ARIVA and ARIVA.COM.PH may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process, (b) protect and defend our rights or property, or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect our personal safety or our designees, users of forum and/or the services associated with forum, or members of the public.

Control of your Personal Information
When you register, or otherwise give us personal information, we will not share that information with third parties without your permission, apart from the limited exceptions already discussed above. Registering also allows you to tell us how or whether you want us to communicate with you. We may send out periodic e-mails informing you of technical service or security issues related to the forum or the services provided, marketing learning events, confirming your registration, or analogous forms of correspondence.

Access to Your Personal Information
We will provide you with the means to ensure that your personal information is correct and current. You can view, edit, and delete personal information you have already given us and change the options affecting the use and display of your personal information by calling our Head Office @number or sending an email to our Data Privacy Officer @email.

Security of Your Personal Information

When you provide us with personal information or register in any of our learning events, it is done through a secure server and/or processed only by authorized personnel.

Only when it reaches the ARIVA.COM.PH server is your information decrypted.
