Privacy Policy

Last updated: November 15, 2015

This is the privacy policy that applies to this Site and our services. We have a firm commitment to safeguarding the privacy of our customers' personal information. Personal information is information about an identifiable individual. Publicly available information, such as a public directory listing of your name, address, telephone number, or electronic address, is not considered to be personal information.

COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

When you register for an account we ask for information such as your name, organization name, and email address. We also collect the email addresses and other personal information provided during account sign-ups, from email inquiries, forum registrations and forum postings, and from blog comments. Information we collect is stored on computer servers that we use to operate the Site. These servers may be located outside of the United States, or the information may pass through jurisdictions outside of the United States in the course of the operation or maintenance of the Site.

Also, you can import your existing database as well as add records manually or collect them through online forms. Personal information of contacts processed through and/or stored via our Site will also be held by us in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

The personal information we collect is used to provide our products and services, for billing, for identification and authentication, for the general operation and improvement of our service, and to respond to inquiries, and is not used, shared with or sold to other organizations, except: to our service providers, as required to operate the Site and provide the products or services you've requested; to the applicable customer of the account in respect of which contact information is submitted to us; for collection purposes; to law enforcement agencies, in emergencies, for internal security matters, or where required by court order or search warrant; or when we have your permission. We do not contact our customers' contacts except as related to operating the Site (for example: event notifications and reminders, membership renewals, security and other notifications).

We may also record your computer's IP address with your order to help us identify fraudulent credit card use. We may share this information with the financial institution that issued the credit card with which an order was placed or with law enforcement authorities if we determine, or are notified, that the use of the credit card was fraudulent.

Your personal information is not used or disclosed by us for any other purpose.

Please see the Site Terms of Use for information on how we handle information upon the termination of an account.

Please note that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of our customers who administer groups and organizations through the Site. If you are a member of a group or organization on the Site the administrators of the group or organization can view any personal information you provide on the Site, and using tools on the Site they can publish your personal information to the Site so that it is displayed in public areas of the Site. If you have any concerns about their doing so, you should contact them. We are not responsible for any use or misuse by such persons of personal information you provide to the Site that is viewable by them using the Site. It is up to the customer to protect the privacy of the information in their custody concerning their members and event registrants, and we are not responsible for their collection, use or disclosure of your personal information.
