We are committed to protecting your privacy. This policy explains how we collect, use and protect the personal information you submit to us, when using our websites, attending events, responding to surveys, or other ways of interacting with us.
“Personal Information” is just another way of saying “personal data” or “PII.” It’s any information that can be used to identify you, either on its own or when combined with other information we have about you. This includes things like your name, address, phone number, email address, social security number, and any other identifying information. The data privacy laws in your country will define exactly what is considered Personal Information. But in general, it’s any information that can be used to identify you as an individual. So, if you’re wondering if something is considered Personal Information, ask yourself if it could be used to identify you. If the answer is yes, then it’s probably Personal Information.
We are guided by the following core principles:
#1 – We only share your personal information with a few trusted partners. We’ll only share your information with them for specific reasons, like: to process or service a transaction or product you’ve requested; when we’re required by law to share your information with government agencies; with our partners to help with events and with our professional advisors, like lawyers and accountants. We’ll never share your personal information with anyone else without your permission.
#3 – We take steps to protect your personal information. We only give access to your information to the people who need it to do their job. We also have physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards in place to protect your information.
#4 – We only keep your personal information for as long as we need it to fulfill the purposes for which we collected it. This means that we may keep your information for a longer period of time if we are required to do so by law or if we have a legitimate business need to do so.
