RDD Online Privacy Policy

RDD Online is committed to respecting and protecting your privacy. This privacy policy describes how we process your personal information, what information we store, how we keep it secure and the conditions under which we may disclose it to others.

Personal Information

There are several areas on the RDD Online website that allow Users to submit requests via a web form or e-mail.

These submissions are completely voluntary, but most require the User to submit some identifying information such as a name, postal address, telephone number, and/or e-mail address. We only collect your personal data where we believe we have a legitimate interest or a lawful purpose to do so. These reasons may include:

  • To register, communicate and provide customer support about RDD conferences
  • To manage a speaker and/or poster abstract through the RDD Publication Process
  • To administer and manage products and services we make available to you; e.g., access to RDD articles, job postings, training modules, etc.
  • To sign up for the RDD mailing list
  • To request technical support or suggest product enhancements, etc.

Passwords and user IDs entered by Users to access online publications are used to ensure that only Users with valid subscriptions are accessing the products, and to track dates and times of access to those articles for license compliance purposes. As with your user IDs and passwords for all software programs, you should keep these identifiers in a secure location and only disclose them to others with a need to know. You should also make sure to sign off when you are finished using the site to prevent unauthorized access.

Financial Details

The RDD Online website does not itself request, store or process any User's financial details. When a User wishes to make a payment online by credit card, they are transferred to a secure online payment processor (such as PayPal). The RDD Online website may pass information to the online payment processor that is required to prevent the User from having to re-enter such information, e.g. Name, Billing Address, etc. The RDD Online website only receives from the online payment processor confirmation that an online payment has been successful or not and a reference number.

Any Financial Details handled by RDD Online staff (for example, in order to process payments by Wire Transfer, Offline Credit Card, etc.) are handled in a secure manner as validated by Trustwave.

Data Retention

We will retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

RDD Online shares limited personally identifiable data with its conference co-organizers for the sole purpose of contacting potential attendees, sponsors, exhibitors, and other participants with details concerning upcoming Respiratory Drug Delivery conferences (RDD USA, RDD Europe, RDD Asia).

RDD Online does not sell, share or disclose information to any other outside parties. RDD Online reserves the right to disclose any information, if such action is necessary to conform to the requirements of law, or to protect and defend the legal rights or property of RDD Online, the website or its users.

Technical Data

Much of the technical data RDD Online collects from visitors to our website is general in nature. We collect information using Google Analytics, including the IP addresses and approximate geographic locations of visitors, which pages are viewed, navigation routes through the site and which other websites serve as entry points. This information is generally viewed in the aggregate and assists us in designing and enhancing the content and layout of the site, all of which can help us provide a more user-friendly experience.

The RDD Online website uses cookies to improve the visitor’s user experience, for example, to remember their preferred text size.


RDD Online protects all information it holds from unauthorized disclosure, alteration, or use through our internal management policies and procedures. This includes educating our employees on the importance of keeping customer information confidential.

All communication between the RDD Online website (rddonline.com) and the User’s browser is encrypted, private and secure.

While RDD takes all reasonable steps to protect itself and its customers from disclosure of personal information, we are aware that frauds, scams and other illegal activities can be initiated based on misuse of the limited information published on our website. We report any suspicious activity concerning misuse of our site or information on our site to the appropriate authorities and ask that legitimate users of the RDD website contact RDD Online if they notice any suspicious activity or have security related questions. We are not immune to the types of problems that beset all users of the internet, but we are committed to the rapid resolution of security issues to minimize the opportunities for fraud. In keeping with this policy we fully cooperate with the authorities to enable the prosecution of alleged perpetrators.

Linked Sites

As a convenience to our users, RDD Online contains links to a number of sites that we believe may offer useful information. We have no control over and are not responsible for the content, privacy policies or reliability of such sites.

Your Rights

If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, we include unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email.

You also have rights over how your personal information is used, including:

  • The right to request a copy of the information we hold about you.
  • The right to request that your information be erased or restricted from further use.
  • The right to correct, amend or update information you have given us.

To exercise any of the above rights or if you have any other concerns please contact RDD Online.

Changes to our Privacy Policy

From time to time, it may be appropriate for RDD Online to change our privacy policy. RDD Online reserves the right to change the terms of this policy, at any time, but will not do so without posting the revised policy on our website.
