We will never sell your personal data.  There are limited situations in which we would need to pass your data on to a third party. This will only be done when it is lawful to do so. Your personal data will only be shared after very careful consideration. Circumstances in which it will be shared are as follows:

1. Sharing with the Conference Venue

We will usually provide your name and the organisation you are from to the conference venue. This will be for the purpose of registering your attendance and to make sure that you have safely left the building in the event of a fire or similar emergency evacuation.

Stripe has been selected as a provider with care but please note that Stripe’s privacy policy will apply. Please click the logo for the policy.

Note about Gravity Forms
