Please read this page carefully as it contains the terms and conditions of the agreement between you and the International Association for the Treatment of Sexual Offenders (IATSO – www.iatso.org).
All commitments between IATSO members and IATSO adhere to the statutes and by-laws of IATSO.
Registration and Start of Membership
We offer online registration for a IATSO 24h-membership through our website www.iatso.org.
Registration and login data are confirmed by an automatically generated email. After completing the registration process you will be asked to pay the 24h-membership fee by credit card. You will then receive an email invoice (if you do not receive an email please also check your junk folder). This membership will be activated upon receipt of the membership fee and is valid for 24 hours.
You are only able to receive a full IATSO membership by applying for it. This application must be approved by the IATSO board. A full membership is valid for the calendar year (January 1st to December 31st) and is renewed automatically if not cancelled by the member (see IATSO statutes and by-laws). The payment of the membership fee for the new year must be done by January 31st.
Invoicing Procedure, Billing and Payment Methods
Membership fees and conference registration fees are collected based on the type of subscription selected. The membership fee and conference registration fee options are shown during the online registration process. You will receive an invoice by email. Payment must be made either online by providing us with your credit card information or by making a bank wire transfer to our bank account (payment must be free of any third party charges). The registration will be invalid and your account (login) will expire if IATSO does not receive payment of your membership fee within 60 days after the receipt of the invoice.
SSL is currently the preferred method to securely transfer credit card and other sensitive data over the Internet.
If a conference has to be cancelled by the event organizer, only the paid conference fees will be refunded. IATSO does not refund any other expenses made in connection with the conference (i.e. flight tickets, hotel reservations,...). IATSO encourages the conference attendants to take out travel insurance.
For our cancellation policy regarding conferences, please see the conference registration form.
Collection of Personal Information
IATSO collects personal information (“Membership Registration Data”) from users in order to register them as members or as conference attendants. This information includes first name, last name, date of birth, telephone number, email address and postal address. When registering as a IATSO member or for a IATSO conference, users must provide an email address and a password.
Use of Personal Information
IATSO uses personal data in order to register people as IATSO members or IATSO conference attendants. If you select the “newsletter” option, you will be provided with information and updates about IATSO.
Changes to Terms and Conditions
IATSO may update these terms and conditions for legal or regulatory purposes. Please check these terms and conditions regularly.
Since IATSO is a non-profit organization registered in Vienna, Austria, all disputes arising out of or in connection with this agreement and/or your membership shall be resolved solely by the ordinary courts in Vienna, Austria. The same applies for disputes in connection with a conference, no matter where the conference takes place.
