We may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. You should check this page from time to time to ensure you are aware of the most recent version that will apply each time you access this website.

For the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998, the International Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes (‘we’ or ‘us’) is the ‘data controller’ (i.e. the company who is responsible for, and controls the processing of, your personal data).

We will obtain personal data about you (such as your name, address, contact information, membership number) whenever you use this website, including when you register.

For example, we will obtain your personal data when you register or log in to use this website, send us feedback, post material, contact us for any reason or register with this website.

We may monitor your use of this website through the use of cookies and similar tracking devices. Cookies are files that store information on your hard drive or browser that means that our website can recognise that you have visited our website before. They make it easier for you to maintain your preferences on the website, and by seeing how you use the website, we can tailor the website around your preferences and measure usability of the website. For example, we may monitor how many times you visit, which pages you go to, traffic data, location data and the originating domain name of your internet service provider. This information helps us to build a profile of our users. Some of this data will be aggregated or statistical, which means that we will not be able to identify you individually.

  • internal record keeping;

  • research, statistical analysis and behavioural analysis;

  • improving our internal processes and procedures; and

  • answering your queries.

Contacting you and opting out

We will only contact you by electronic means (e-mail or SMS), or in any other way (including by post or telephone), with professional information and services (including promotions) similar to those which were the previously provided to you and/or which we feel may otherwise be of interest to you.

Disclosure of your personal data

We may from time to time disclose your personal data to certain third parties acting on our behalf, such as service providers, and these third parties may be located in jurisdictions outside of the European Economic Area. Please be assured that we will ensure that these third parties have adequate measures in place to protect any personal data that we disclose to them.

In some circumstances, we may have to disclose your personal information by law, because a court or the police or other law enforcement agency has asked us for it, or for other purposes that are required as part of our operations.

Keeping your data secure

We will use technical and organisational measures to safeguard your personal data, for example:

  • access to your account is controlled by a password and username that are unique to you

  • we store your personal data on secure servers
