This document sets out how ISDDE uses data it holds about Fellows, Members and others who have registered an interest in the Society. ISDDE will only use your details for the purpose of running the Society in accordance with our constitution, primarily by keeping you informed of news, conferences, elections and other relevant information. As a largely unfunded, international society, however, we rely on various free or low-cost online services to communicate with members and run elections. These cases are described below. Apart from these exceptions, ISDDE will not share your data with any other third parties.
- While you remain a Fellow or Member of the Society, we will keep a record of your name, an email contact and (where provided) your current professional affiliation or role. The complete list is only accessible to members of the ISDDE Executive committee, and reasonable security precautions will be taken when sharing data amongst committee members. You may ask at any time to give up your Fellowship or Membership and be removed from this list.
- (Fellows only) The list of Fellows’ names and affiliations is published on the ISDDE website, www.isdde.org. Fellows have already been given an option to opt-out of this. From June 2018, only the names of Fellows who have responded affirmatively to the latest “opt-in” request will be included, and we will no longer include any email addresses.
- Please note that registration and payment for each ISDDE Annual Conference is managed by the hosting institution – usually a University or similar educational institution. Conferences will be announced via the ISDDE Mailing List and website, but for registration you will be directed to the host’s website. Any information you provide during registration will be subject to the host’s own terms and conditions.
