Personally Identifiable Information

Examples of Personally Identifiable Information which Attendees provide may include their first and last name, e-mail address, mailing address (including zip code), employer, job title and department, telephone number, social media account ID and other identifying information.

The ways by which we collect information are as follows: (1) information that is provided to us by our Clients; (2) information that is voluntarily and directly provided by Event Attendees in response to particular prompts or fields; (3) information that is collected automatically when our Services are used (Cookies); (4) app usage data from mobile apps which you download in connection with our Clients’ events.
3. How We Use the Information We Collect
