Types of Information Gathered
There are two primary types of information provided by Step Exhibitions customers. The definitions and treatments of these types are as follows:
- Financial Information – Payment information gathered during the registration process – including but not limited to, credit card numbers, financial institutions, and expiration dates – is considered Financial. This information is not distributed under any circumstance.
- Professional Information – Data that customers provide to Step Exhibitions through various methods of communications with Step Exhibitions is considered professional information that is stored and managed for Step Exhibition’s internal use.
Professional information includes, but is not limited to, name, address, company name, company address, phone number, fax number, email address, as well as questions answered on survey or registration forms. Data captured during a customer’s visit to a Step Exhibitions web site, as well as during a visit with another Step Exhibitions customer, is also considered professional information and may also be stored for Step Exhibition’s internal use. Professional information may be shared with other organisations or Step Exhibitions customers for the purpose of facilitating business relationships in our customer’s best interests, unless you have opted out of such communications.
At Trade Shows
Anyone attending a session in our seminar theatres at one of our trade shows will have their visitor badge scanned and, through such attendance and scanning, will be agreeing to the passing of their professional information to the seminar host/exhibitor company and to being contacted by the seminar host/exhibitor company and/or speaker in relation to such session. Similarly, anyone who agrees to have their visitor badge scanned at an exhibitor company’s stand is agreeing to their professional information being retained and used by that exhibitor company for marketing purposes and to the information being passed to Step Exhibitions for data analytics purposes.
