This site is owned and operated by E-vent Software, Inc. ("E-vent Software"). This document applies to all sites and software that are explicitly or implicitly owned or powered by E-vent Software, Inc. Herein, the organization who enlists our services to create and/or manage their web site shall be referred to as the "Client". Collectively, E-vent Software, Inc. and its Clients shall be referred to as "We" or, possessively, "Our." Visitors to one of our sites shall be herein referred to by either "User" or "Customer."
At E-vent Software, and on behalf of our Clients, we understand the frustrations that SPAM, junk e-mail, pop-ups, and other invasions of your privacy cause and that is why we want to make your experience online as satisfying and safe as possible. It is for this reason that we always protect your privacy as our highest concern. Because we and our Clients gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.
We gather two types of information about our users and customers:
Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to receive our electronic newsletters, to participate in our message boards or forums, to email a friend, and from participation in polls and surveys.
Information E-vent Software gathers through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites. This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers' needs and to help our clients better understand the demographics of their audience. Under no circumstances does E-vent Software divulge any information about an individual user to a third party without the expressed consent of that user.
E-vent Software Gathers User Information In The Following Processes:
We offer the following free services, which require some type of voluntary submission of personal information by users:
1. Electronic newsletters (Dispatches)
At times, we may offer a free electronic newsletter to our users. E-vent Software gathers the email addresses of users who voluntarily subscribe. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by following the link provided in every newsletter/mailing that points users to their personal information management page. Users can also subscribe to the newsletters at the time of registration in our system.
We may offer interactive polls to users so they can easily share their opinions with other users and see what our audience thinks about important issues. Opinions or other responses to polls are aggregated and are not identifiable to any particular user. E-vent Software may use a system to "tag" users after they have voted, so they can vote only once on a particular question. This tag is not correlated with information about individual users.
We may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target our content to our audience. We sometimes share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our sponsors, partners, and clients. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party.
Consistent with the Federal Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent. In our system, this is safeguarded by requesting billing information and credit card information at the time of purchase.
E-vent Software tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. E-vent Software does break down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser).
We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
E-vent Software uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience in our network of sites, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the sites or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users.
As stated above, we use information that users voluntarily provide in order to send out electronic newsletters and to enable users to participate in polls and surveys. We send out newsletters to subscribers on a regular schedule (depending on the newsletter and our clients' schedule of events), and occasionally send out special editions when we think subscribers might be particularly interested in something we are doing. E-vent Software never shares newsletter mailing lists with any third parties, including advertisers, sponsors or partners. The majority of e-mails we send to subscribed customers are at the request of our clients (e.g. reminder e-mails, early notification e-mails).SHARING OF THE INFORMATION
E-vent Software uses the above-described information to tailor our content to suit your needs and help our clients better understand their customer's demographics. We will not share information about individual users with any third party, except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
E-vent Software operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our customers. For more technical information about our current infrastructure, please click here.
We give users options wherever necessary and practical. Such choices include:
Opting not to register to receive our electronic newsletters/mailings when registering,
Returning to their personal customer information page where they may opt out of future mailings.
Clicking on the "unsubscribe" link that appears at the bottom of each of our electronic newsletters/mailings,
Opting not to participate in certain interactive areas, which completely alleviates the need to gather any personally identifiable information from our users. In this case, the customer must call the number provided on that site so that their order may be taken by a customer service associate.
