Web Site Use Information
Similar to other commercial Web sites, our Web site utilizes a standard technology called "cookies" (see "What Are Cookies") and Web server logs to collect information about how our Web site is used. Anonymous information gathered through cookies and Web server logs may include the date and time of visits, banner ads visited, pages viewed, time spent at our Web site, and the Web sites visited just before and just after our Web site. We, our advertisers and third-party Web partners may also use small pieces of code called “Web beacons” or “clear gifs” to determine which advertisements and promotions users have seen and how users responded to them. This information can also be used for online preference marketing purposes.
If you want to prevent a third-party advertiser from collecting data, you may either visit each ad network's Web site individually and opt-out or visit the NAI gateway opt-out site to opt-out of all network advertising cookies. Click here for the NAI gateway opt-out site.
What Are Cookies
A cookie is a very small data file stored on your computer, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier to customize portions of our site to your preferences. When you visit a Web site, that site's computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each Web site can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a Web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. For example, meetingpages uses a cookie to identify you as a meetingpages subscriber and to make sure that only you have access to your personal events, address book, budget(s), check list(s), guest list(s) and submitted RFPs. This way, you answer certain questions only once and not every time you participate in an activity or event. The cookie by itself doesn't tell us, or anyone else, who you are, what your email address is, or anything else personal. You provide that information when you subscribe with meetingpages, and only meetingpages has access to that information.
You can browse and search for meetingpages vendors without registering or providing any personal information. However, in order to take advantage of our personalized services, you are required to provide us with information including your name, mailing address, mailing city, mailing state, mailing zip code, email address, your company’s primary business, and the category the best describes your primary job function. We collect similar information from users who choose to participate in our contests and promotional events. We always let you know before we collect any personal information from you. Please understand, if you choose to set up your browser to reject all cookies, that you may be limited to some of the functionality within our site.
What We do with the Information that You Provide to Us
The first thing to remember about privacy is that there is only so much information that any Web site can collect without your answering of specific questions. meetingpages logs IP addresses (the location of your computer on the Internet) for system administration, troubleshooting, and to examine overall traffic trends for the purpose of expanding our business activities, providing customer service and making available other products and services to our customers and our prospective customers. IP addresses help us determine the percentage of people coming from various online gateways, such as Google or Yahoo. This information, in aggregate form, is recorded for administrative purposes only. IP addresses are not linked to any personal information. Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our Web site, new services and special offers we think you will find valuable. You may notify us at any time if you do not wish to receive these offers by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information we collect from your subscription helps us to improve our content, customize certain pages for you, and update you about meetingpages. From time to time, meetingpages does share names, postal addresses, and demographic information with other pre-screened organizations that have specific direct mail product and service offers we think may be of interest to you. You may choose at any time to remove your name and address from these mailing lists by editing your privacy preferences or by letting us know via email at email@example.com (please include your name, address, and email).

Sharing Information with Third Parties
We may enter into alliances, partnerships or other business arrangements with third parties who may be given access to personal information including your name, address and telephone number for the purpose of providing you information regarding products and services that we think will be of interest to you. In connection with alliances, partnerships or arrangements, we may also provide certain information to third parties if we have determined that the information will be used in a responsible manner by a responsible third party. For example, some of our partners provide services on our site, while others power offerings developed by us for your use. We also use third parties to facilitate our business, including, but not limited to, sending email and processing credit card payments. In connection with these offerings and business operations, our partners and other third parties may have access to your personal information for use in connection with business activities. As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings.

Email is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. For this reason, we request that you do not send private information to us by email. Some of the information you may enter on our Web site may be transmitted securely via Secure Sockets Layer SSL, 128 bit encryption services, which are enabled by VeriSign, Inc. Pages. Utilizing this technology will have URLs that start with HTTPS instead of HTTP. Please contact email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns.
Your privacy is very important to us, but due to the existing legal regulatory and security environment, we cannot fully ensure that your private communications and other personally identifiable information will not be disclosed to third parties. Under certain circumstances, the government or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Additionally, in the unlikely event we need to investigate or resolve possible problems or inquiries, we can disclose any information about you to private entities, law enforcement, or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate.
Finally, we use industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal identifiable information, such as firewalls and Secure Socket Layers (SSL) where appropriate. We also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers' information is protected. Finally, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment, behind a locked cage requiring keys, photo ID key cards and biometric scans to access.
We hope this policy clarifies our procedures regarding your personal information. If you have any questions about the security at our Web site, you can send an email firstname.lastname@example.org.
