Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

Who we share your data with

We do not share member or associate data with anyone else for any purpose, outside of the activities of IASP.

For users that join the ECG on our website, we store the personal information they provide in their user profile.

We use your personal information to provide you with personalised service; to send e-mail alerts to you; to answer your requests; etc. You may choose to opt out at any time, which will cease all communications from us. We may also use your information to track visitors of our website. This lets us see which of our features are the most popular so we can better serve our users’ needs. It also lets us provide aggregate data about our traffic (not identifying you personally, but showing how many visitors used which features, for example) to outside parties.

How long we retain your data

We will retain your data for as long as you are a member or associate. This is usually a two-year period once the person has joined the group. Following this period data will be permanently deleted. If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely.
