Personally Identifiable Information We Collect
We collect personally identifiable information when you provide it to us, such as when you register for an event, request information or otherwise communicate with us. Many of the services that we offer, including but not limited to events, require your contact details as a condition of use; when you interact with one of our sites you are no longer anonymous. We may also receive information about you from other sources and add it to the information you have provided to us.
In General, we may collect and store any personally identifiable information you provide to us. Personally identifiable information is data that identifies you, or that can be combined with other information to identify or contact you, and includes (but is not limited to) your name, business or personal physical address, email address, and telephone number.
You are not obligated to provide us with any personally identifiable information, although registration is required to access the full range of information and Events offered.
How We Use Your Information
We may use the information we collect from you when you register for an event or use certain other site features in the following ways:
- To personalize user’s experience and to allow us to deliver the type of content and product offerings in which you are most interested.
- To improve our website in order to better serve you.
- To allow us to better service you in responding to your customer service requests.
- To administer promotional content or other site features.
- To send periodic emails regarding your registration or other products and services.
If you wish to register for our events, we ask for contact information, including but not limited to name and email address. Quartz Events uses this information to fulfill your request for information and, in some cases, personalize the email content for you. All emails have an option to unsubscribe, and requests will be processed immediately.
Third Party Disclosure
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information unless we provide you with advance notice or if you download vendor sponsored content (see above) that requires your personal details be transferred to said vendor. This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property, or safety.

California Online Privacy Protection Act
COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online. Quartz Events does not specifically market to children under 13.
