General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Statement of Compliance

On May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), went into effect (a European Union privacy law). The GDPR imposes new rules on companies, government agencies, non-profits, and other organizations that offer goods and services to people in the European Union (EU), or that collect and analyze data tied to EU residents.

Under the provisions of the GDPR, users of our website may request access, corrections, or deletion of all personal data stored by the American Academy of Neurological and Orthopaedic Surgeons (AANOS). Any requests will be processed by AANOS within 5-7 business days. We restrict collection of personal data to a minimum and carefully avoid the collection of any extraneous data. We never sell user information to third parties.
