What personal information about members and other customers does FindSpeakersEasy.com gather?
Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing your future visits to the FindSpeakersEasy.com website, improving our website, and communicating with you.
For example, you provide information when you search for a product; place an order through our store; provide information to our Member Services department; provide information in your personal profile (or profiles, if you have more than one); communicate with us by phone, email, or otherwise; complete a questionnaire; or use other FindSpeakersEasy.com features. As a result of those actions, you might supply us with such information as your name (or another person’s), your address, phone numbers; credit card information, your professional credentials, content of emails to us; essentially your personal, professional and financial information.
Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many websites, we use “cookies,” and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses FindSpeakersEasy.com.
A number of companies offer utilities designed to help you visit websites anonymously. Although we will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience at FindSpeakersEasy.com if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these tools exist. In addition, the Federal Trade Commission provides useful information about online privacy on its own website, http://business.ftc.gov/privacy-and-security/consumer-privacy.
Information from Other Sources: Third party advertisers may appear on our website from time to time. They may be able to detect that visitors to their website arrived via FindSpeakersEasy.com. However, we do not receive any information from these or other outside websites regarding your page views, purchases or any other information.
What about cookies?
Cookies are tiny bits of information that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide features such as your personalized profile.
The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, cookies allow you to take full advantage of some of FindSpeakersEasy.com’s most entertaining and helpful features, and we recommend that you leave them turned on.
Does FindSpeakersEasy.com share the information it receives?
Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. However, we may share your information for the following purposes:
Third-Party Service Providers: We may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing website design assistance, and processing credit card payments. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions but may not use it for other purposes.
How secure is information about me?
FindSpeakersEasy.com is committed to protecting the security of your personal information and maintains physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that meet industry standards to guard your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access, which are located in controlled facilities. We protect your account information by placing it on the secure portion of our website, using firewalls and other security technology to protect our network and systems from external attacks, and requiring you to enter a unique user name and password to access your account information online.
When we transmit highly confidential information (such as a credit card number or password) over the Internet, we protect it through the use of encryption. FindSpeakersEasy.com uses industry-standard (SSL) technology to prevent unauthorized parties from viewing potentially sensitive information such as your name and address, as well as critically sensitive information like your credit card number, that you provide or access during a secure session (look for a padlock or key and chain icon on your browser).
We reveal only the last four digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.
It is important for you to guard against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
NOTE: Email is not encrypted and is not considered a secure means of transmitting credit card numbers.
