The International Council of Motorsport Sciences (The ICMS) respects your privacy. We will make every reasonable effort to ensure that any personal information you provide to us is used only for the purposes stated below. While the policy presented here concentrates on information collected by The ICMS Website, it also applies to personal information submitted by other means (mail, fax, phone, email, sign-up sheets, etc.). Several areas of The ICMS Website require that you send us personal information: Membership Application / Annual Congress Registration / Sponsorship Information / Contact Us / and any additional personal information we may have access.
This information is received offline as well (mail, fax, scanned documents and phone). The ICMS uses the demographic and professional information collected on membership, medical conference, and other forms for aggregate analysis, to personalize our records for better service, and to create targeted mailing lists. This information may also be included in conference attendee lists supplied to conference sponsors, exhibitors and other responsible third parties.
Information Submitted Online
In addition to the primary purpose stated or implied at the time the information is collected, we may use your postal mailing and or email address to send you information about ICMS programs, special events, surveys, etc. If you supply an e-mail and/or mailing address, we may use it to confirm your registration, application, follow up on a request, etc., as the context determines. We may also use it to keep you informed about programs and initiatives. With the exception of the conference attendee data, The ICMS does not make its e-mail lists available to any third party.
Registration and Applications
We request certain information from you on our Annual Congress and Membership pages. To make payments to The ICMS, you must provide contact information (name, phone numbers and billing address) and financial information (credit card number, expiration date and security code). This information is used for billing purposes and to register for special events. If we have trouble processing a registration or membership, we may use this information to contact you. We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the Website, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure manor. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page. While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only our personnel who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, conference registration or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers and servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
