This policy applies when the ASHS is acting as a data controller with respect to personal data of members of the congress; in other words, where we determine the purposes and means of processing that personal data.
In this policy, "we", "us", and "our" refer to ASHS.
Protecting your privacy is one of our top priorities. Please take a few minutes to read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it.
We recommend that you regularly review this policy for any changes. It is your responsibility for doing so.
Information that you provided by filling in forms on our website which may include: your title, name, affiliation, faculty/academic field, job title, email address, postcode, and telephone number.
We may use information provided by you in the following ways:
Our website does not require membership in order to submit papers, but we do email those who have joined to receive notices of congress holding and contact for journal publications.
We keep your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil our obligations to you and to protect our legal interests or as otherwise stated to you when such data is collected.
We understand that the security of your information is important to you. We also understand that our continued success as a publisher on the web relies on our ability to communicate with you in a secure manner.
Despite our best efforts, and the best efforts of other firms, "perfect security" does not exist on the internet, or anywhere else. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.
