IAAH Privacy Policy

April 2019

In an effort to maintain efficient service while respecting the privacy of those who visit the International Association for Adolescent Health (IAAH) website (Site) and correspond electronically with the Secretariat, we have created and posted the following privacy policy.

IAAH is committed to keeping your e-mail address confidential. We do not sell, rent or lease to third parties the emails of members or anyone else with whom we conduct business.


Information Collection and Use

We will collect personally identifiable information that you provide to us, including, but not limited to, your name, email address, gender, profession, field of expertise, employer’s name, physical address, employer’s name and physical address. IAAH will use and store this information in order to notify you of events, news, updates and reports. Personally identifiable information may be given to a third party in order to complete a specific business transaction on behalf of IAAH, such as completing payment of the membership fee.

We may disclose personally identifiable information to the proper authorities if we are legally required to disclose such information. We also may use and disclose information about you to establish or exercise our legal rights, to assert and defend against legal claims, or if we believe such disclosure is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take other action regarding actual or suspected illegal or fraudulent activities or potential threats to the physical safety or well-being of any person.

We will keep this information throughout your time as a paid Member and for a maximum of 12 months after your membership ends. You can contact the IAAH Secretariat to ask them to update or delete your information at any time. You can also opt out of notifications by email at any time.

In addition, your name and contact information will appear in the IAAH members-only directory if you tick the box to allow us to do so at the end of the application.

You have the option of setting your computer to disable cookies or to alert you when cookies are being used. If you choose to disable cookies, please be aware that portions of the Site may not function properly.
