Who we are
Our website address is: www.sihda2019.law.ed.ac.uk/
Our website is hosted by the University of Edinburgh and powered by WordPress.
Information about you: how we use it
The information you provide will be used to administer your abstract submissions and attendance at the SIHDA 2019 conference (LXXIIIᵉ Session de la Société Internationale Fernand de Visscher pour l’Histoire des Droits de l’Antiquité) held at the University of Edinburgh from 2 to 7 September 2019.
We are using information about you because it is necessary for the administration and organisation of an academic conference. Our legal basis for this is ‘performance of a contract’.
We may collect information where available about your IP address, operating system and browser type. This is data about users’ browsing actions and patterns. It is used to inform improvements to the website, for system administration, and to report aggregate information to third parties and thus in the University’s legitimate interest.
The tool we use most consistently is Google Analytics. Anonymous data about your visit is collected and amalgamated with that of other visitors so we can better understand how people use our website.
Cookies may also be collected by Third Party websites where we have embedded content from their website on our own.
As a rule, cookies will make your browsing experience better. However, you may prefer to disable cookies on this site and on others. Most browsers provide for ways to control cookie behaviour such as the length of time they are stored – either through built-in functionality or by utilising third party plugins. If you disable cookies, please be aware that some of the features of our service may not function correctly.

You can opt out of Google Analytics by installing Google’s opt-out browser add-on.
Third party websites
The website contains links to and from the websites of third parties. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies.
Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these third party websites.
www.sihda2019.law.ed.ac.uk is powered by WordPress. If you have a WordPress account and access the site whilst you are logged in, you should consult the WordPress privacy and cookies policy to understand what data is collected and how it is used by WordPress. We do not accept and responsibility or liability for this policy.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is never completely secure and we cannot guarantee the security data transmitted to our website. Any transmission is at your own risk.
We will hold the personal data you provided us for four weeks following the end of the conference. This is so that we can process attendance certificates upon request.
We do not use profiling or automated decision-making processes. Some processes are semi-automated (such as confirmation of abstract submissions) but a human decision maker will always be involved before any decision is reached in relation to you.
We may amend this policy. If we make any substantial changes we will notify you by posting a prominent notice on the website.
If you have any questions, please contact
