We gather two types of data about our users: personal information and tracking information.
Personal information is provided by users when posting comments to articles on www.unlock-bc.com, when registering for a conference, such as UNLOCK Forum or others, or when listing an ICO information on UNLOCK or requesting advertisement. Personal information gathered from posting comments includes e-mail address and screen name. Personal information gathered in connection with registering for our conferences, selling research reports and subscribing to our newsletters may include name, employer, job title, employer address, e-mail address and phone number.
Unlock DOES NOT store any Credit and debit card information submitted when purchasing ad space and registering for a conference, rather it is dealt with by third-party Banks and credit card companies.
In addition to the cookies described above, UNLOCK, its agents, advertisers, and third-party advertising vendors that serve ads onto the UNLOCK Sites, and other third-party partners, may use their own or third-party cookies or other tracking technologies for advertising, including delivering targeted advertisements and marketing messages (known as Internet-based advertising or “IBA”) based upon the websites you visit, or other purposes.
UNLOCK cannot be responsible for the privacy policies or practices of third party advertisers and vendors. Additionally, third party advertising vendors, including Google, show our ads on sites on the Internet.
Use of Information
- To enhance users’ experiences on the UNLOCK Sites, including the display of customized content and advertising;
- To improve our content, and to ensure the technical functioning of the UNLOCK Sites.
UNLOCK does not sell or disclose personal information about you described above to other people or nonaffiliated companies, except to provide you with products or services, when we have your permission, or under the following circumstances:
We provide the information on a confidential basis to nonaffiliated companies we engage as contractors or agents to perform services for us, such as maintaining software or administering payments. Information will be shared with such contractors only to the extent reasonably necessary for them to perform services on our behalf, and pursuant to confidentiality obligations;
We disclose personal information gathered in the conference registration process (other than credit and debit card information) with the sponsors of that conference upon registrants approval; and we may share with third parties certain pieces of aggregated, non-personal information, such as the number of users who clicked on a particular link or how many users clicked on a particular advertisement. Such information does not identify you individually.
The Information from Conference registration is at times shared with Government entities specific to certain countries as per their requirements when it comes to legal requirements for conference organization.
Postings related to articles on the UNLOCK Sites are publicly available. You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose any of your personal information in a public posting.
