The Network for the Public Communication of Science and Technology (PCST) is an incorporated association in Australia, and is obliged to comply with the Australian Government's privacy laws and data protection regulations.
PCST applies SSL to secure information sent via its website, and stores that information securely.
When a proposal for a conference presentation is submitted, the personal information that PCST keeps is: the name, email address, organisation, and country of residence of the author. And the same for any co-authors nominated in the proposal.
PCST uses that information to communicate with authors about their proposals. Additionally, PCST passes the names of authors (whose proposals have been accepted) and their email addresses to the conference organisers, to ensure that authors are registered for attendance. Conference registration is a requirement of presenting at the conference. The conference organisers are bound to secure that information and not disclose it to any third party.
Presentations published on the PCST website will be attributed with the authors' names.
