When someone visits the Site, our web servers automatically gather information that allows the site to communicate with the visitor’s computer during the visit. We also track such information as the number of visits to the site, which parts of the site visitors select, IP address (the Internet address assigned to your computer from your Internet Service Provider), domain type, browser type (e.g., Netscape or Internet Explorer), date and time of day. We use those types of information for statistical purposes that help us design and administer the Site. Those types of information do not disclose Personal Information that would permit us to identify or locate individual visitors. Privacy concerns focus on Personal Information, that is, information that could identify a specific individual such as names, addresses, e-mail addresses, and telephone numbers. If during your visit you personalise the Site or submit other information to us, you may provide us with Personal Information.
As explained below in the section on Dissemination of Information to Third Parties, we do not distribute or sell Personal Information to third parties for the purpose of allowing them to market their products and services to you. If you notify us that Personal Information previously submitted to our Site is no longer accurate, we will make a reasonable effort to make appropriate corrections. To facilitate our efforts, it would be helpful if you could let us know the context in which you provided Personal Information, e.g. in connection with promotion of a specific product or service.
For the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998 (the “Act”) Clockwork Marketing & Events Ltd (details as above) is the data controller.
Communicating via the Internet and sending information, products, and services to you by other means necessarily involves your Personal Information passing through or being handled by third-parties.

They have access to Personal Information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
We may disclose your Personal Information to our parent company and our affiliated companies.
The Act gives you the right to access the Personal Information held by us about you. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with the Act. Any access request may be subject to a fee of £10 to meet our costs in providing you with details about the information we hold about you.

The Orthopaedic Trauma Society does not accept medico-legal enquiries under any circumstances.
Under the terms and conditions of membership, the Orthopaedic Trauma Society has no mandate to divulge either personal information, or even confirmation of membership unless directed to do so by an order of the court. To do otherwise would constitute a breach of the Data Protection Act (2018).
You are hereby advised that, as a research-focused organisation with a voluntary membership, the OTS neither requires nor maintains HIPAA-compliant IT systems, and the Society holds no mandate to act on behalf of any member in medico-legal matters. Consequently, no confidential or patient-identifiable data should be sent to the Society under any circumstances. Any and all confidentiality notices appended to unsolicited communications are held to be invalid, and the Society retains the right to refer breaches of patient confidentiality arising from such unsolicited communications to the relevant professional body.
