Pastimes Events Statement of Privacy

At Pastimes Events, we are committed to protecting your privacy. You can travel through most of our site without giving us any information about yourself. But sometimes we do need information to provide services that you request, and this statement of privacy explains data collection and use in those situations.

Collecting your Personal Information

We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you (personal information) or allows us to contact you. Generally, this information is requested when you are registering to attend, exhibit at, sponsor or advertise at a convention or event, when registering for a contest, subscribing to e-mail newsletters, or when purchasing Pastimes Events products. Personal information collected by Pastimes Events often is limited to e-mail address, language, country or location, but may include other information when needed to provide a service you requested.

For example: If you choose a service or transaction that requires payment, such as purchasing a Pastimes Events badge or booking your hotel room, we will request personal information necessary for billing and/or shipping, such as: name, address, telephone number, and credit card number.

If you ever want to review or update the information we have stored for you, simply send an email to info@pastimes.net and we will send you your profile to allow you to edit your personal information. We will ask for sufficient identification to assure that only you can access your profile.

Use of your Personal Information

We use your personal information for the following purposes:

 

  • To help you quickly find products, services or information on pastimesevents.com.
  • To help us create and publish content most relevant to you.
  • To alert you to new events, special offers, updated information and other new services from Pastimes Events via newsletters.
  • To help you sign up for Pastimes Events newsletters.
  • To enable you to register for Pastimes Events conventions and events.
  • To allow you to participate in contests or promotions.
  • To let you give us your opinion through online surveys.


We may hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including packaging, mailing and delivering purchases, answering customer questions about products or services, sending postal mail and processing event registration. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
Pastimes Events may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Pastimes Events or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Pastimes Events and its web sites, or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Pastimes Events, its web sites, or the public.

Your information may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Pastimes Events or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities, and by using this site, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country. Pastimes Events abides by the safe harbor framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of data from the European Union.

Control of your Personal Information

When you register, or otherwise give us personal information, Pastimes Events will not share that information with third parties without your permission, other than for the limited exceptions already listed. It will only be used for the purposes stated above
