If you choose to provide us with personal information that we or our business partners may need – to correspond with you, process an order, or provide you with a subscription, for example – it is our intent to let you know how we will use such information.

The information you submit during online registration for an event is used to process registrations and payments and to help us organize our relationships with those who attend our events. If you tell us that you do not wish to have this information used as a basis for further contact with you, we will respect your wishes.

We do keep track of the domains from which people visit us; we analyze this data for trends and statistics, and then we discard it.
