We share your data only with those who need access or those to whom you have provided consent.


Except as set forth in this Privacy Policy or when specifically agreed to by you, we take care to allow your personal information to be accessed only by those who really need access in order to perform their tasks and duties, and to share with third parties who have a legitimate purpose for accessing it. In general, we do not share your information with a third party for their independent use unless: (i) you request or authorize it, (ii) it is required by law, or (iii) it is in connection with a co-sponsored event. We may share personal information in the following circumstances:

A. Service Providers.  We may share your information with our suppliers, subcontractors, and other third parties who provide services to us (collectively “service providers”) in connection with advertising, hosting, data analytics, information technology and infrastructure, email delivery, auditing, exam-testing, training providers and other related activities, vendors or third parties who deliver or provide goods and services or otherwise act on our behalf of or at our direction.  Our service providers are given only the information they need to perform their designated functions and are prohibited from using the information we provide them for their own purposes.

B. Business Partners and Sponsors. From time to time, we may engage in joint sales or product promotions with selected business partners. If you purchase or specifically express interest in a jointly-offered product, promotion or service, we may share relevant personal information with those partners. If you are an event attendee, speaker, or sponsor, certain items of your information may be included in the event roster, which may also be shared with third-party event sponsors and exhibitors and publicly disclosed, subject to the applicable law. While we do not control our business partners’ use of such information, we do take appropriate steps to ensure that they use appropriate safeguards to protect your personal information. Our partners and sponsors are responsible for managing their own use of the personal information collected in these circumstances, including providing information to you about how they use your personal information. We recommend you review the privacy policies of the relevant partner to find out more about their handling of your personal information. Where we do share your personal information with third parties, ISACA LAGOS takes steps to ensure that they use appropriate safeguards to protect your personal information.

C. Within Our Corporate Organization. We are part of a corporate organization that has many legal entities, business processes, management structures and technical systems. We may share your personal information within this organization and with our subsidiaries and/or affiliates to provide services and support, provide recommendation to optimize services, to provide members and prospective members with information about our Services, and for the purposes otherwise described in this Privacy Policy. We may also share your information with our board members and our volunteers for the purposes of conducting our internal business operations.

We may disclose your information to government authorities or third parties if: (i) required to do so by law or regulation, or in response to a subpoena or court order or any other enforceable governmental request or order; (ii) we believe disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect against fraud, to protect the property or other rights of us or other users, third parties or the public at large; or (iii) to exercise, establish or defend our legal rights.

E. Business Transfers. We may share or transfer your information in connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets, financing, acquisition, dissolution, corporate reorganization or similar event. We will inform any buyer that your information shall only be used in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

5.  Information Security


We take reasonable measures to ensure your data is safe.


We take reasonable measures to protect any personal information we may hold in order to prevent loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. In some areas of our platforms, we may use encryption technologies to enhance data privacy and help prevent loss, misuse, or alteration of the information under ISACA’s control.

We cannot guarantee, however, that all information will remain secure. The Internet by its nature is a public forum. We encourage you to use caution when disclosing information online. Often, you are in the best situation to protect yourself online. You are responsible for protecting your login ID and password from third-party access, and for selecting passwords that are secure.

6.  Data Retention


We retain your information according to applicable laws and store it securely.


We will retain the personal information we collect from you where we have a justifiable business need to do so and/or for as long as is needed to fulfil the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law (such as tax, legal, accounting or other purposes). You can request deletion of your personal information at any time (see "Your Privacy Rights and Choices" section for further information) and we will consider your request in accordance with applicable laws.

When we have no justifiable business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

7.  Your Choices and Privacy Rights


You have choices on how we communicate with you.


Listed below are choices we provide you in relation to the processing of your personal information. Individuals located in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), the United Kingdom or Switzerland at the time they access our Services, please see section 9, for more information about your choices and rights.
