We want to protect your privacy. In order to operate, our web sites and business operations may gather information about you. These terms explain how this may happen, what we will do with any potentially private data and how you can get in contact should you have any concerns.
Personally Identifiable Information Collected
Personal identifiable information is information that allows you to be identified as a particular person, such as your name, your address or phone number.
We collect certain types of personal information when you register for an event, a webcast or a newsletter. This information may include:
- your name
- your title
- your address
- your phone number
- your fax number
- your email address
- your credit card number or other payment method
Information we collect such as this will not be given or sold to third parties unless we have specifically obtained your permission beforehand.
Cookies & Web Beacons
A cookie does not personally identify you. It is simply a way to know that a particular web browser was used to visit our sites.
A web beacon does not personally identify you. It is simply a way to automatically send information about pages and content used to an analysis tool.
Cookies and web beacons allows us to understand things such as whether a particular web browser is spending much time on our sites, visiting several times per month and other types of analysis.
If you never provide us with personally identifiable information, then your visits – despite us using cookies or web beacons – are anonymous. We don’t know the actual person linked with the cookie.
It’s like having a library card but never having to provide your name, address or phone number to check out books. The books are checked out by someone using a particular library card number, but who owns that number isn’t known.
If you do provide personally identifiable information, then potentially we could link that with your cookie, then gather the visits with web beacons and understand how you personally have acted when visiting our web site.
Browsers can be set to accept or reject cookies or notify you when a cookie is being sent. Privacy software can be used to override web beacons. Taking either of these actions shouldn’t cause a problem with our sites, should you so choose. If you do encounter a problem, please let us know.
What We Do With Personally Identifiable Data
Personally identifiable information you provide may be used to:
- Send you something you’ve requested, such as email newsletter
- Send you information from Third Door Media that we think you’ll be interested in
- Send you information from our advertisers
- Target advertising based on your interests, if you’ve provided those
Sharing Your Information With Advertisers, Sponsors & Others
Your personally identifiable information will only be shared with other companies when:
- We have asked for and you have given your consent to share the information with advertisers, exhibitors and sponsors for a specific service.
- We need to provide it to other companies in order to deliver the services you want from us, such as having an email list sent out or to process your event order. In these cases, the information is used only for the specific service you wanted from us.
- You allow your badge to be scanned at Search Marketing Expo conference.
We may also aggregate information and disclose it to advertisers and other third parties for marketing, promotional, and other purposes. In these cases, we do NOT disclose any personally identifiable information as part of this.
We may buy or sell a company or property. If we sell a business, we may transfer some or all of your information as a part of the sale so that you will continue to receive the service being provided to you or for other business purposes.
