We will provide some of registered user data to other companies that provide services to us if required. For example, we will send a list of registered users to a chosen merchandise manufacturer, in order to print out labels, conference leaflets and make other conference handout material. All of sensitive personal data will never be sent to a third-party without person’s permission.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see and edit their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information. All user data will be stored on the website database (server).
