The Member is responsible for all costs incurred in organising the event, including catering and any venue hire costs.  If the Member wishes to organise an event to be held at AICD’s premises, this is subject to room availability and must be held during business operating hours. The Member must not enter into or purport to enter into any contract or agreement or accept any booking with a third party venue on behalf of the AICD. The Member must enter into any such arrangements on their own account and be responsible for costs incurred.

11.  In organising the event a Member may be provided with personal information of potential attendees. A Member must only deal with personal information in accordance with the Privacy Act and the AICD’s Privacy Policy and must not use the personal information provided for any purpose not directly connected to organising the event.

12.  A Member must delete any personal information provided once the event has occurred. If the event does not proceed, the Member must delete the personal information provided as soon as practicable after the event has been cancelled.  The organising Member must also agree to take the steps set out in the Terms and Conditions in relation to a suspected or actual data breach.

13.  The event may only be advertised/marketed using the templates supplied to the Member by the AICD. The templates make clear that the event organised by the Member is not sponsored or organised by the AICD.

16.  If the organising Member books an event to take place at the AICD’s premises they will be provided with relevant information about safety (including evacuation procedures) prior to the event taking place, and the Member must ensure that they are familiar with this information prior to the event and provide the information to attendees.
