Privacy Policy

We collect no information about our users (members) that is not supplied voluntarily through web forms or e-mail. The information supplied will be stored in a databank and is needed to offer certain services that require member access. We also use this information to communicate with our members.

Any information collected in this manner is never shared with anyone unless expressly allowed or requested by the user. We do not sell or reveal user information to anyone, unless required for access to external parties (for example, access to the journal Cognitive Linguistics); in these cases, sharing of information will be regulated by signed agreements between the ICLA and the external party. Information shared in this way will be kept to an absolute minimum.

We may at times collect anonymous tracking information to gauge usage patterns and the popularity of specific areas of the site. As with all other information, these data will not be shared with external parties. Cookies may be deactivated by the user at any time. They are not required for this site to function properly.


ICLA membership is for one year. Will be considered member: each individual who has signed up on the ICLA website and paid their membership fee. Payment of the fee can be done via the website (PayPal with link to credit card) or via bank transfer (costs at the expense of the sender). Automatic renewal of membership fee will be made possible.

Membership gives access to the journal (for 2015, most likely to change in 2016) as well as the member-only pages on the website. The latter include an individual profile page.
