SISP/Confnow! Privacy Policy

This privacy policy will explain how our organization uses the personal data we collect from you when you use our website.

What data do we collect?

SISP and Confnow! collect the following data:
• Personal identification information (Name and email address)
• Institution for working or reasearching
• SISP conference proposals
• Details about your conference participation

How do we collect your data?

Through Confnow! systems you provide SISP databases with most of the data we collect. We collect data and process data when you:
• Register online as a simple conference registered user
• Submit a paper or a panel proposal for the annual conference
• Voluntarily complete a customer survey or provide feedback via email

SISP/Confnow! may also receive your data indirectly from the following sources:
• Submissions by other papers or panels where you are registered as co-proponent, i.e. meaning your name and email are filled in.

How will we use your data?

SISP/Confnow! collect your data so that we can:
• View, list and manage your submitted papers or panels
• Email you with any needed feedback concerning the submission process as well as the acceptance process, if requested by the current conference policies
• Email you with confirmation about your registration to the conference as participant
• Forward your email and amount to pay to an external payment system (Paypal) for the only purpose of completing the payment itself
• Compile an invoice document for payments concerning conference participation

If you agree and if requested by the conference policies, SISP will share your data with external companies
so that they may offer you their services: 
• Paypal
• Google Analytics
• Confnow!

When SISP processes your order, it may send your data to, and also use the resulting information from, credit reference agencies to prevent fraudulent purchases.

How do we store your data?

SISP securely stores your data through Confnow! support at SiteGround hosting servers, and specifically in a single database. Confnow! will keep your data for as long as SISP conference organizing and scientific committee will ask to do so. At any rate this will be for no more than 15 years. Once this time period has expired, we will delete your data by erasing the database.


Confnow! would like to send you information about products and services that we think you might like. If you have agreed to receive marketing, you may always opt out at a later date. You have the right at any time to stop Confnow! from contacting you for marketing purposes.
If you no longer wish to be contacted for marketing purposes, please write to with subject “[Cancel marketing agreement]”.
