Our Privacy Policy


IAOP Privacy Policy

The International Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathologists (‘the Society’) takes your privacy and the protection of your personal data seriously.  We will only use your data to support the aims of the Society and provide you with its membership benefits.

The Society will hold limited personal data on members; contact details as provided by you including postal addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, title or position and membership and subscription status for the purposes of managing the Society.  These include contacting you about meetings and distributing information related to oral and maxillofacial and head and neck pathology, such as information about regulators, training, clinical practice and research.

The Society will store your data securely on the IAOP 2020/2021 website hosted by Wix whose privacy statement is available at www.wix.com.  Your data is only accessible to the members of Council of the Society and we will only share it with third parties necessary to the management of the Society, such as conference organisers or agencies directly contracted to perform the work of the Society.

Additional personal data and financial information that members may submit to websites for Society purposes, such as conference and hotel bookings, will be processed and held by those external organisations and will be shared with the Society to enable them to run such events.  

The data controller for the IAOP is the Secretary, whose contact details are on the Society website at www.iaop.com.  You may request a copy of your data at any time, update you contact details and other information or ask to have data deleted by contacting them.  The IAOP will retain your data for as long as you remain a member, honorary or life member of the Society, and for one year after membership lapses (to allow us to contact you in case it has lapsed in error).


A copy of this privacy statement can be downloaded from here or requested in hardcopy from the Secretary.
