Please read these terms and conditions carefully before using the ICCPM website.  Use of this site constitutes your agreement to the Website Terms of Use and User House Rules.  Where payments are made to ICCPM, completing a payment transaction on this website means you agree to the Payment Arrangements.

Please read the below information pertaining to the agreement between ICCPM and users of its website.  This agreement defines how the ICCPM website is monitored and USERS rights and responsibilities.

USER Rights and Responsibilities:

Registered Users (Members)

By registering on the ICCPM website via the purchase of an ICCPM membership, you will join a global online community and gain access to restricted and valuable content.   As a registered member of ICCPM, you own your own details.

Once logged in to the ICCPM website, members have access to their personal profile through which you can add or remove your personal details at any time.  Your email address is only ever visible to APM staff for the specific purpose of communicating with you. It is not possible for any member to ever view or access your email address from the site.  At any time, you may also update communication preferences and personal interests which may dictate how and when ICCPM communicates with you.

Newsletter Subscribers

USERS only receive email newsletters from ICCPM if they have actively given their consent via subscription sing-up on the ICCPM website. USERS can amend or cancel their newsletter subscription at any time using the unsubscribe links located in the newsletter emails or by contacting ICCPM directly at admin@iccpm.com.

ICCPM cannot, however, guarantee or take responsibility for how well USER data is protected during processing. There are therefore no explicit or implied guarantees or assertions of any kind provided in relation to the information or services associated with the email newsletter. In particular, ICCPM accepts no liability for direct or indirect damage of any kind that might arise in connection with usage of the email newsletter by USERS and/or third parties. This disclaimer also applies to defects of title and/or possible non-compliance with legal regulations. USERS assume full responsibility and risk for the use of their data.

USERS who provide their email address to register for an event will receive an email confirming their registration. Furthermore, ICCPM reserves the right to contact USERS via email for the purposes of quality assurance and the further development of its events. It is possible to unsubscribe from this email communication at any time.

Code of Conduct:

Where forums are established on the ICCPM website for public use or for restricted access to members of specific groups or activities, users are encouraged to be the primary contributors of content with the understanding you are directly responsible for everything you choose to publish, whether you have created it yourself or have sourced it from a third party.

ICCPM reserves the right to moderate content shared in forums. If you publish anything that someone else considers defamatory or if ICCPM receives a notification that you have published material without the consent of the copyright owner, ICCPM will remove your posting immediately. If users engage disrespectfully with others in the online community, ICCPM at our own discretion will remove these users from the group if it is deemed appropriate to do so.

By registering for an ICCPM event you are agreeing to these terms.
