Here you will find information on how we treat data that we collect from visitors to our website, or when someone subscribes to our newsletter.

Visitors to our website

When someone visits, we may use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor’s behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

If we do want to collect personally identifiable information through our website, we will inform you about this before doing so. We will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it.


Newsletter sign-up

All members, associate members, partners of ISOFS have already by implication, permitted us to keep certain personal information about themselves and have also permitted us to exchange official correspondence either by newsletter and other means. Any who do not want to receive the newsletter should notify the Secretariat via the email  

As part of the registration process for our quarterly e-newsletter, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about things you have asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check and ensure that our records are right and to check every now and then that you are happy and satisfied with our services. We do not rent or trade collected email lists with other businesses and organisations.

We sometimes use a third party provider, PHPLISTS, to deliver our newsletter. We may gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor our e-newsletter as well as improve them. For more information, please see PHPLISTS privacy notice.

ISOFS Membership Registration is done with some required payments and registrations are not complete if payments are not made. Payments are also renewed annually. We do not issue refunds once the order is accomplished and the membership is secured. A registered member has the freedom to discontinue future payments and that officially implies a denial of membership.


Payments for conference registration are not refundable.

Payments for online resources and other materials owned by the International Society of Obstetric Fistula Surgeon are also non-refundable after transaction is completed except when the resource paid for is not delivered at the agreed period.


Please note that we depend on some online Commercial gateway for all online transactions, and that some tokens are charged as processing fees by these companies to effect such transactions. These fees vary depending on amount paid and time payment is made and you will be notified about the amount before you complete each transaction. They serve as intermediaries between you and us and our respective banks during transaction.
