A new law in the European Union (EU) strengthens data privacy for consumers.
Beginning May 25, 2018, the EU's new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) gives EU residents more control over how their personal data is handled. In the spirit of, and in compliance with, GDPR, we want you to know what personal data we collect, and what we do and don't do with it.
What kind of data we collect
The World Society for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Surgery is only interested in data that helps us deliver membership products and services to you. This includes:
- Name, mailing address (shared with Sage Publishing for delivery of the World Journal), email address, phone, fax, payment history
- World Society event attendance
- Non-identifiable aggregated web site data
- site visits
- number of page views
- geographical source of visits
What we do with data we collect
Our primary goal is delivering educational information and scientific research through the website, the World Journal, and the World Database. We use your personal data to make sure you receive important industry information, updates and special promotions.
What we don't do with data
We have never and will never sell your information to marketers or other vendors.
