Legal basis for processing

We collect and process information about you only where we have a legal basis for doing so under applicable laws. The legal basis depends on the service(s) you use and how you use them. This means we collect and use your information only where:

  • We need it to provide you the services, including to operate the services, provide customer support and personalized features and protect the safety and security of the services.
  • It satisfies a legitimate interest (which is not overridden by your data protection interests), such as for research and development, to market and promote the services and to protect our legal rights and interests;
  • You give us consent to do so for a specific purpose; or
  • We need to process your data to comply with a legal obligation.

How do we store your data?

The IAAER stores your data within our secure servers.

We only use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology across the website to ensure a private and secure connection between IAAER’s website and your browser.

All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via SSL technology and then encrypted into our Payment gateway providers database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.

After a transaction, your private information (credit cards, social security numbers, financials, etc.) will not be stored on our servers.

Your personal data will not be kept for longer than is necessary to fulfill the specific purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy and to allow us to comply with our legal requirements. The IAAER wants to ensure that it is simple for members to continue membership and to rejoin anytime. See ‘The right to erasure’ below for information on how to request the deletion of your data.

We may transfer to, and store the data we collect about you in, countries other than the country in which the data was originally collected, including the United States, Canada or other destinations outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). Those countries may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you provided the data. When we transfer your data to other countries, we will protect the data as described in this Privacy Policy and comply with applicable legal requirements providing adequate protection for the transfer of data to countries outside the EEA and outside the United Kingdom.

If you are located in the EEA or the United Kingdom, we will only transfer your personal data if:

  • The country to which the personal data will be transferred has been granted a European Commission adequacy decision;
  • The recipient of the personal data is located in the US and has certified to the US-EU Privacy Shield Framework; or
  • We have put in place appropriate safeguards in respect of the transfer, for example, we have entered into EU standard contractual clauses with the recipient, or the recipient is a party to binding corporate rules.


The IAAER would like to send you information about products and services of ours that we think you might like.

If you have agreed to receive marketing, you may always opt-out at a later date. You have the right at any time to stop IAAER from contacting you for marketing purposes. If you no longer wish to be contacted for marketing purposes, please update your account information and disable ‘news’ emails.
