Such personal information may include the following: first name; middle name or middle initial; last name; title; date of birth; nationality; mailing address; e-mail address(es); phone number(s); affiliation; position; previous affiliations, academic background and degrees, scientific research, publications, contributions to IISL activities, participation in IISL events or events of IISL partner organizations, and Curriculum Vitae.
I also understand that IISL maintains a database of its members (both individual and prospective members and institutional members and their representatives) at and that if I so choose, this information will be made available to other IISL members. Access to this database will not be made available to other members of IISL (other than the administrators of the data base) unless I expressly authorize such availability. I understand that if I authorize other members of IISL to access this database, IISL will have no control over its subsequent use and/or distribution to third parties (i.e., parties that are not members of IISL).

I hereby give my consent to such use of such personal information and understand that IISL has no control over the information posted on social media and that third-parties may have access to such information.
