If you register for an event or contract for sponsorship or a booth online, our secure order form requests contact, billing, and financial information (such as your credit card numbers for purchases). Contact information from the order form (email address, name, billing and shipping address, and phone number) is used to send confirmation and/or billing to you or your company. Your contact information, including email address, is also used to get in touch with you should we have questions regarding your registration/contract or should we need to notify you of the status of your registration/contract. And yes, you can opt not to get email from us, as described in the opt-out section below. The credit card information we collect is used to bill you for your purchase.
