COLLECTION OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Personal information is information that can be used to identify you either directly or indirectly. What is considered to be personal information may depend on where you live and the laws that apply to the data we may collect about you. Your personal information does not include any de-identified information we collect. De-identified information is data that does not contain any personal information about you and for which there is not a reasonable basis to believe that it can be used to identify you.
Some personal information may also contain particularly sensitive personal information about you. Sensitive personal information generally means personal information that reveals racial or ethnic origin, religious beliefs, a mental or physical health condition or diagnosis, sex life or sexual orientation, citizenship or citizen (immigration) status, genetic or biometric data that may be processed for the purpose of uniquely identifying an individual, or personal data from a child known to be under thirteen (13) years old.
We collect personal information that you provide to us when you use the Website or request specific services through the Website, including but not limited to account creation and event registrations. For example, if you provide it to us, we may collect:
- Identity and contact information, such as your first name, last name, physical address, electronic address (such as your email address), date of birth, and phone numbers (home, work or cell); or
- Marketing information, such as your responses to surveys we might ask you to complete.
We do not knowingly collect sensitive personal information on the Website. Please do not share your sensitive personal information with us through the Website.
You may refuse to provide your personal information to us, but this may lead to our inability to provide you with certain products or services.

This information may include: your IP address; operating system; browser type; domain names; the pages within the Website you visit; access times; referring websites or addresses; and approximate location data. This other information may or may not identify you, but in most instances it will not.
We may also obtain information about you from third parties, such as our service providers, contractors and other third parties in connection with our Website or through other means if they are permitted by the laws that apply to them to share this information with us. For example, if in the future we create user profiles from information submitted to our Website, we may include other publicly available information in that profile.

4. What Must I Provide To Exercise My Rights?
To protect consumers’ personal information and comply with the CPA and other privacy laws, we will use an authentication process to confirm your identity before we act on your request. You or your authorized agent may make an authenticated consumer request related to your personal information. If an authorized agent makes the request on your behalf, we may require that you provide the agent written permission to do so, and that you provide us a copy of the authorization or a copy of a power of attorney. We will employ reasonable measures to authenticate requests in order to detect fraudulent requests and prevent unauthorized access to your personal information. To meet our obligations, we are required to associate the information you provide in your request with the personal information we previously collected. If we suspect fraudulent or malicious activity, we may decline a request or ask that you provide further authenticating information. You are not required to create an account with us to make an authenticated consumer request. We will only use personal information you provide to authenticate your data rights request to authenticate your identity or authority to make the request.
We charge no fee for your first data rights request but will charge a reasonable fee for each subsequent data rights request within a 12-month period.
