INCOMPAS is committed to protecting your privacy. The following explains what information we collect about you, how we use it, and what choices you have regarding this information. This policy applies to all information collected from or submitted to incompas.org, show.incompas.org, policysummit.incompas.org, our show mobile app, or to INCOMPAS employees or contractors.
What We Know About You
In general, you can browse our websites without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. As with many websites, our sites automatically recognizes your domain name, IP address, browser version, operating system and the referring site you passed through to reach our site. These do not specifically identify you. This information may be used for website traffic analysis and is treated confidentially.
Any additional information you provide, such as your name, organization, job title, address, telephone number, email address, and interests, is collected only upon your consent. You must, for example, provide such information whenever you join as a member of the association; sign up for an email newsletter; register for, or sponsor, an event; or sign up to participate in an INCOMPAS event, such as exhibiting or leasing a meeting room.
How We Use What We Learn
Information we collect is used to manage our operations, serve our members, improve the content of our websites, and to provide you with any information you've requested. We also compile and use this information so that we may keep you apprised of INCOMPAS events, news, and ongoing work. For example, we use contact information we have gathered to respond to inquiries, provide information about INCOMPAS events and services, and provide information about important public policy issues.
There are other times when we may share your information:
- When you have provided us the information to share with other INCOMPAS members or INCOMPAS event participants.
- When you have provided us the information for publication purposes, such as in The INCOMPAS Show Guide.
- When we are required to by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, warrant, or similar legal process.
- When we believe that such disclosure is necessary to protect public or individual safety.
