This “Privacy Notice” explains the collection, use, and disclosure of “personal information” by the International Symposium on Antimicrobial Agents and Resistance (ISAAR) through the website that ICIC & ISAAR 2019 Secretariat operates at icic-isaar2019.org. In accordance to the Information Network Promotion Law revised on September 30, 2011 and legislated to prevent the misuse and abuse of personal information on the Internet, this Privacy Notice also explains our commitment to you with respect to use and disclosure of the personal information that ICIC & ISAAR 2019 Secretariat collects from its members. That commitment is contained in the “Data Usage Policy” below. As used in this policy, “personal information” means information that would allow a party to identify you such as, for example, your name, address, location or email address. ICIC & ISAAR 2019 Secretariat collects membership information in order to provide better services to its users. By accessing icic-isaar2019.org as your ID, you are accepting and agreeing to the practices described in this Privacy Notice.
We collect various types of information depending upon how you use our site.
A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a website that is saved on your hard disk by your computer's browser. It holds information a site may need to interact with you and personalize your experience. At icic-isaar2019.org, we use two kinds of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies exist only for as long as your browser remains open. Once you exit your browser, they go away. We use session cookies to maintain information we need to have in order for you to register for ISAAR. For example, the Session ID cookie that we ask your browser to hold retains the ID for YOUR ACCOUNT. Without the Session ID cookie, you can't add and modify any information when you signed-up.
Persistent cookies, in contrast, last from visit to visit; they do not go away when you exit your browser. At icic-isaar2019.org, we use persistent cookies to give you a more personalized browse and to help you navigate our website more efficiently. We will use your information to enhance your site experience. However, you can use our site without accepting a persistent cookie. To do so, you should set your browser options to reject persistent cookies. Alternatively, you can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, which gives you the opportunity to decide whether you want to accept it or not. In many instances, the Help button on your browser toolbar will tell you how you can take these steps.
Cookies can be used by a website to recognize you. But that does not necessarily mean any personal information is stored in the cookies. At icic-isaar2019.org, we store no personal information about you in the cookies. Anything you choose to tell us about yourself (such as your address and email address) is stored safely and separately on our secured servers, and you need to provide a password to access it.
We may use your information in a number of ways, including the following:
Do We Share Your Information?
The information gathered may be shared with ISAAR and our family associations. We also share the information with third parties, including responsible committees with which we have a relationship. For example:
In most of the above situations, these third parties will receive your information because you will be visiting their websites or using their links and, in doing so, you may provide information directly to them. You, therefore, should refer to their privacy policies to understand how they handle your information and what kinds of choices you have.
Also may share your personal information with outside companies that perform services for ISAAR. For example, we may retain an outside company to manage a database containing certain customer information or to create and distribute an email offering. In those situations, the outside party is performing work for icic-isaar2019.org includes language in its contracts stating that your information is to be used only to provide the services requested by icic-isaar2019.org.
Additionally ISAAR may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to comply with a law or to protect our interests or property. This may include sharing information with other companies, committees, lawyers, credit bureaus, agents or government agencies in connection with issues related to fraud, credit or debt collection.
And in the event that some or all of the business assets of ISAAR are sold or transferred, we generally would transfer the corresponding information about our customers.
Finally, ISAAR may share your personal information with unrelated outside companies so that they can directly promote the services to you if we feel that a committee offers services that we believe may be of interest. We also may provide you with the opportunity to sign up on our website to receive email offers from other companies.
What Choices Do You Have Regarding the Use of Your Information?
We provide you with a number of choices regarding our handling of your personal information.
If you wish to change your email preferences, please click on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the e-mail or describe the request such as “Please do not send me email" or “Keep my email address private.”
Note: Once you have submitted your email opt-out request you should assume that it has been successfully received and your request is being processed. Please allow us ten business days from when the request was received to complete the removal, as some of our promotions may already have been in the process before you submitted your request.
You also may use the address and phone number above to request that we will not disclose your personal information to unrelated third parties for marketing purposes. If you choose to write to us, please include your name, address and credit card account number to be used for settlement and state "NO THIRD PARTY SHARING" in your request.
If you are a user who has already been signed up of ISAAR, you can update your information in “YOUR ACCOUNT”, and if you have questions about your status, you may also check them online in “YOUR ACCOUNT.”
If you would like, you may also email the ISAAR Secretariat (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Questions regarding your charge account may be forwarded to our Credit Customer Service Department. Please use the Contact Us Form and select the appropriate subject line from the drop-down menu.
ISAAR has put in place various physical, electronic and managerial procedures to try to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. For example, private account and customer information is located on a secured server behind a firewall; it is not directly connected to the Internet. Encryption is a process by which a message or information is scrambled while it is in transit to ISAAR. It is based on a key that has two different parts, public and private. The public part of the key is distributed to those with whom you want to communicate. The private part is for the recipient's use only. So long as you use a browser that allows for encryption, when you send personal information to us, you use a public key to encrypt your personal information. If your information is intercepted during the transmission, it is scrambled and very difficult to decrypt. Once we receive your encrypted personal information, we use the private part of our key to decode it.
Please note however that while we implement many security measures on this site, 100% security cannot be guaranteed.
Thank you for your visit to the ISAAR website. If you have any questions or comments about this policy, please email the ISAAR Secretariat (email@example.com).
