When using or interacting with us through the Services, we collect Users' personally identifiable information. This will normally be on behalf of a Client using our Services to organize an event. Users must consent to us collecting their personally identifiable information before accessing our Services.
For all Users, we gather personally identifiable information when you voluntarily give such data to us to enable us to provide the Services, e.g., when you register/sign up to use the Services, use the Services (such as when you attend or participate in one of our events), send an inquiry, access a resource provided by us or interact with our Services in any other way. Depending on the purpose for collection, the personally identifiable information we may collect includes, but is not limited to, your name, address, email address and other information. In addition, we may collect personally identifiable information when you interact with Clients which may provide such information to us for the purpose of the Services. We may also collect personally identifiable information from our service providers and business partners, or when you submit an application for employment or become employed by the Company.
We may automatically collect certain types of personally identifiable information whenever you interact with us, such as in some e-mails we may send each other and through our website or websites related to the Services. This can include your preferences (like, language and the location you are in). We may also collect information about your visits to our website or websites related to Services, such as, the length of visits to certain pages and page interaction information.
We may also collect information about Users by storing a unique identifier for analytics purposes or for storing Users' preferences. We may also automatically collect certain information when Users visit the Services, including site analytics, Users' IP addresses, site usage data, browser name, the type of computer and technical information about Users’ means of connection to our Services, such as the operating system and the Internet Services providers utilized and other similar information.
Automatic technologies we use to collect such information may include web server logs, cookies, pixels and web beacons, which do not automatically obtain your personally identifiable information. Only if you voluntarily submit personally identifiable information, such as by registering or sending e-mails, can these automatic tracking technologies be used to provide further information about your use of websites to improve their usefulness to you. If you wish to prevent cookies from tracking you anonymously as you navigate websites, you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.

Users may find content posted by other Users, advertising, or other content available from our Services that link to the sites and services of our partners, suppliers, advertisers, sponsors, licensors and other third parties (collectively, “Third Party Content”).

In addition, these sites or services, including their content and links, may be constantly changing. These sites and services may have their own privacy policies and customer services policies. Browsing and interaction on any other website or Third Party Content, including websites which have a link to our Services, is subject to that website's own terms and policies.

We will respond within the time required by law.
