Privacy Statement


Global Family Doctor is collecting details from Membership Profiles to allow WONCA to match resources with global areas of need. Global Family Doctor is also entering email addresses of registrants into a listserver, to allow us to more readily inform you about regular and new Global Family Doctor content and services. This list is collected from Membership profiles and is used solely by Global Family Doctor and WONCA and will not be given to any third party. We do urge members to supply this detail, which will assist WONCA in its world mission. Any data or statistics generated by the registration details will not carry any personal identifiers of individual members.


Detail is collected from the Membership Profiles filled out by global members when logging in to . If you do not want your details entered into the listserver, please indicate by ticking the appropriate box when logging in.

Listservers and email communications

Email communications via listservers, will be one way only, to safeguard your data from possible mis-use. Email communications from the listserver also carry a facility for members to remove themselves from the list.


Newsletters and other communications will be run via the member listservers. Some 'special promotions' may also be directed to parts of the membership list via a 'special code'. Again, while special promotions may be directed to certain types of members, full privacy of member detail is ensured.


On registering with Global Family Doctor for the first time, a 'cookie' (or small data file) will be forwarded to your computer's hard drive, to allow the Global Family Doctor site to recognize that you have already logged in. This is an automatic process and thereafter users proceed directly to the site home page.


To provide secure online services, to a wide variety of computer types, Global Family Doctor does not conduct commerce online. Payment forms can be found online, but these are to be printed out and faxed or posted to Global Family Doctor administration. Global Family Doctor will continually monitor 'online e-commerce facilities and services' with a view to including them on the site, once members feel comfortable with such online commerce.

Aggregate information

Any (unattached) data generated by the site and used by WONCA or Global Family Doctor will have all personal identifiers removed.

Changes to policy

Any changes to this policy will be highlighted on Global Family Doctor and/or member emails and newsletters.
