Privacy and Standards Policies

The IBUS website is dedicated to providing accurate information about high-quality educational programmes relating to multimodality breast imaging and image-guided interventional procedures.

Information about you

Unless provided voluntarily – such as your name, address and contact details via the Contact IBUS form on this website – IBUS does not store personal particulars about individuals, and when details are provided, IBUS does not share this information with third parties without prior permission.


The section of our Contact form titled “I am Human” is utilised in an effort to stop spam bots from submitting the form. This functionality is provided by hCAPTCHA, which has its own Privacy Policy for its clients, available by following the ‘Privacy’ link under the hCAPTCHA logo. That document states, in part, under the heading “Information We Collect “… as a result of End-Users answering prompts through the Service (“Labeled Data”), such as image labeling data. Note that Labeled Data is not tied to any identified individual.”


Our hosting server, like most such services on the Internet, uses traffic logging ‘cookies’ only for maintaining contact with a user throughout a website session. These are known as ‘session cookies’, which allow the web server to recognise you as an individual visitor as you move from one of our web pages to another. A session cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than data you choose to share with us.

We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes. This helps us analyse data about webpage traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. All session cookies will be immediately lost when you end your internet session or shut down your computer.

There are NO ‘persistent’ cookies used on this website (the kind that may be stored permanently on your hard drive by some other organisations).
