Who we are

ICAR is a non-profit group selected by ISAR Board of Directors with the approval of the ISAR members to host and organize a scientific meeting. Our website address is: https://www.icarxi.com

Attendee data

ICAR is committed to protecting your privacy, and we honor your right to make choices about the information you share with us. ICAR requests information from those who engage with us to complete business processes such as meeting registration, to improve the communication and sharing of science, to improve programs and websites, and to serve the interests of members, authors, meeting attendees, and others by providing them with relevant information.

We are committed to providing an explanation of what information is required and what is optional, as well as how that information is being used.

ICAR does not sell meeting attendee or member contact information.

It has been brought to our attention that some individuals and organizations have been contacted with offers of lists for purchase. These offers are not affiliated with ICAR in any way and are unauthorized. We thank our exhibitors for reporting this issue to us. If you receive or know of an email containing such an offer, we ask that you please alert us by email.

Where your data is sent

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Personal information is collected such as your name, mailing address, phone number, e-mail
address, other contact information, and credit card number. Other non-personal information,
such as education, employment data, gender, demographic information, and other scientific
interest related information is also collected.
Once collected, ICAR may use this information in a variety of ways which may include:

  1. To communicate with you about your ISAR membership, if applicable, or to communicate
    information about ICAR. For example, we may send all new users a registration e-mail, and we will also occasionally send important notices or information.
  2. To provide you with prompt and effective customer service.
  3. To fulfill and/or deliver products and services such as subscriptions, meeting
    registration, submission of articles, administer scientific awards and honors, and in
    various other interactions.
  4. To build higher-quality, more useful services, such as by analyzing usage trends, and by
    measuring demographics and interests regarding specific areas of the Sites.
  5. To conduct internal assessments of ICAR or ISAR programs and membership; additionally, these
    data, in a consolidated form, may be used in publicly distributed statistical descriptions
    and studies of the ISAR constituency.
  6. To help us understand membership trends, and gender and age differences with respect to
    perspectives about and usage of programs and the creation of new program offerings.
