This privacy policy notice tells you what to expect when we collect personal information.

 

Visitors to our websites

 

When someone visits one of our websites, we store web server log information, which includes information such as the IP address you connected from, the user agent of your browser and which page you requested. We use this information to monitor the security, performance and health of our systems.


Our website is protected by TLS. This means your connection to our website is encrypted. The conferences comply with the newest European GDPR.

 

People who register for our conferences

 

When someone registers for one of our conferences we collect personal information in the form of billing details to fulfill your order. This information and data includes your full name (first and last), prefix, email address, company name/affiliation, job title, and country. Once you register, you are given access to a ticket to attend the conference.  If you are registering on behalf of another individual(s), you shall make sure that you have permission from the appropriate individual(s) to provide us with this information, you shall be responsible for such information, and you shall make sure that the information is correct.

 

People who attend our conferences

If you have received a ticket for one of our conferences we store the personal information about you, which was either provided by you or someone from your organization who gave us permission to provide us this information.

 

This information includes your full name (first and last), prefix, email address, company name/affiliation, job title, and country which we require to send your ticket and grant you access to the conference. Any additional information associated with your ticket may be requested, but is not required. This may include cell and/or work phone number, department, whether you are a member of an underrepresented community, and/or social media handles. We ask for the additional optional information because it helps us better understand the composition of our conference attendees and to ensure the high quality of the overall event experience is relevant to our audience. For example, we may ask for your job title to confirm that we include content in the program that is relevant to your job role. We may also use your contact information including email address, company address and phone number to contact you with important information related to the conference, or in case of emergencies.

 

Through our third party conference app called "Whova App" (“Conference App”), we may also provide a QR code that encodes the personal information provided to us during the registration process. This is to facilitate networking and exchange of contact details among our attendees. Sponsors in the exhibition area and other attendees may ask to scan your QR code using our Conference App  or other QR scanning tools to exchange contact information. You have the option to deny that request, or remove/hide the QR code if you wish to not share your information. Whenever our Conference App  is used to scan QR codes, the contact details are only stored on that device and are not shared with us or any third parties. Those using Conference App are able to export the contacts stored on the device as a .CSV file.

 

Leading up to the conference, you may receive emails that include practical information related to the conference including registration hours, links to additional social events and new speaker announcements. After the conference, you may receive an email requesting event feedback and including links to watch conference videos online. Emails both before and after the conference may also contain information about upcoming free events and other information relevant for conference attendees. 

 

Each of our marketing communications provide you with the options to unsubscribe or alter your communication preferences. You do have the option to unsubscribe from the practical information emails, but we strongly encourage you to keep this subscription so we can email you with important practical information for you as an attendee of the conference.

 

During the conference, your personal information will be temporarily stored on our on-site registration system so we can grant you access to the conference.

 

Your picture may be taken and/or your name, image and likeness may be captured via screen digital and/or video recording devices during the event.  By attending the conference you hereby grant us the perpetual right to use of your name, image and likeness in our marketing, promotional and advertising materials, and in any media, medium and technical format, whether now known or hereafter devised, including without limitation publishing such information and images on our social media, website and marketing channels. Please make yourself known to the J4K team if you do not wish to have your picture taken, or be recorded, during the event. If you find an unwanted picture of yourself on any of our social media, website and marketing channels, please email us at info@j4k.io with the link to the photo or video, and we will use our best reasonable efforts to take it down.

 

People who use our Conference App

 

When you use our Conference App, use of such Conference App shall be governed under Whova’s privacy policy rules, which will be provided to you during the apps installation on your device, so please carefully review their privacy policy terms.

 

During the conference, you have the option to submit feedback using our session evaluation form. This feedback is anonymous, unless you choose to include personal information in your feedback. 

 

We will also provide you with polling questions during the conference.  In this case, we may or may not make these polling questions anonymous.  If we decide, in our sole discretion, not to make the polling questions anonymous, then we will have access to your registration information that you have previously provided through the Conference App.  

 

People who are speaking at our conferences

 

When you are speaking at one of our conferences we do need some personal information in order to communicate with you, and ensure other practical details related to your appearance at our conference.

 

This information may include your full name, email, phone number and country of residence. We may share this information with third parties when it is required for fulfilling our agreement with you.

 

We also need some information in order to publish and market your talk on our website. This information includes your name, company name, profile picture, speaker bio, social media profile links, links to your blog(s) or website(s) as well as the title and description for the talk(s) and/or workshop(s) you will perform at our conference.

 

During the conference, attendees have the ability to submit feedback in the form of ratings, comments and questions about your talk through our conference app. This feedback will be monitored by our team members during the conference, and the questions during your talk will be relayed to you in front of the audience at the end of the talk if there is time.

 

We use this information to gather general feedback about the conference, review the quality of the topics and talks, and use as input for planning of future conferences. We do not share this information with any third parties.

 

Your picture may be taken and/or you name, image and likeness may be captured via screen digital and/or video recording devices during the event. By attending the conference you hereby grant us the perpetual right to use of your name, image and likeness in our marketing, promotional and advertising materials, and in any media, medium and technical format, whether now known or hereafter devised, including without limitation publishing such information and images on our social media, website and marketing channels. Please make yourself known to the J4K team if you do not wish to have your picture taken, or be recorded, during the event.
