If you choose to register for one of our conferences, join our mailing list or otherwise provide us with your Personal Information, we will collect and store such Personal Information and use it for the purpose for which you provided it to us.
You may request that any Personal Information we receive from you be deleted from our database. Please review the section below on “opt-out” for further information on deletion.

How We Use Your Information
We may use your Personal Information to occasionally send you information on our conferences, communicate with you about your conference registration, or to otherwise respond to you.
We may use Anonymous Information to help us make our Site more useful to visitors or to learn about the number of visitors to our Site and the types of technology our visitors use. We do not track or record information about individuals and their visits. We use “cookies” to collect some of this Anonymous Information. A “cookie” is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes. The cookies never include Personal Information and visitors that we track cannot provide us with Personal Information through normal movement across the Site.
We may also use “log data” to collect some of this Anonymous Information. This log data may include information such as your computer’s internet protocol address (more commonly known as an IP address), browser type, the webpage you were visiting prior to your arrival at the Site, the pages of our Site that you visit, the time spent on those pages, access times and dates, and other statistics as well as the unique identifier for your computer, mobile phone or any other electronic device used to access the Site. We use this information to monitor and analyze use of the Site, for technical administration, to increase functionality and user-friendliness, and to better tailor the Site to the needs of our users. We do not treat log data as Personal Information or use it in association with other Personal Information, though we may aggregate, analyze and evaluate such log data.
How We Share and Disclose Information
We share your Personal Information only with our affiliates, subsidiaries or joint ventures, in which case we will require them to honor this Privacy. We DO NOT share Personal Information with unaffiliated third parties.
We may disclose information we have collected about you if required to do so by law or if we, in our sole discretion, believe that disclosure is reasonable to comply with the law, requests or orders from law enforcement, or any legal process (whether or not such disclosure is required by applicable law), or to protect or defend the Company’s, or a third party’s, rights or property.
When you supply us with Personal Information, from time-to-time, you may be asked to indicate whether you are interested in receiving information from us about our conferences. Unless you opt- out to receive such communications, we may, from time to time, send you marketing communications.
At any time, you can choose to no longer receive commercial or promotional emails from us by sending us an email to email@example.com. Also, in any promotional email we send, you will be given the opportunity to opt out of receiving such messages in the future by clicking on the link at the bottom of the email that says “unsubscribe.” It may take up to 10 days for us to process an opt-out request.
Even if you have unsubscribed from receiving promotional emails from us, we may send you other types of important email communications without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them. These may include customer service announcements, administrative notices and surveys.
Please note that changing information in registration account or opting out of receiving promotional email communications will affect only future communications from us. If we already provided your information to a third party (such as an affiliate) before you changed your preferences or updated your information, you may have to change your preferences directly with that party as well.
Security and Data Retention
We will retain your Personal Information only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose(s) for which it was collected and to comply with applicable laws and your consent to such purpose remains valid after termination of our relationship with you.
