GovEvents Privacy Policy

GovEvent's Privacy Policy is designed to help you understand how we collect and use the personal information you decide to share, and help you make informed decisions when using GovEvents (collectively, "GovEvents" or "Website" or "Site").

By using or accessing GovEvents, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

Information We Collect
When you visit GovEvents you provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected by us and Website use information collected by us as you interact with our Website.

When you register with GovEvents, you provide us with certain personal information, such as your name, your email address, your telephone number, your address, and any other personal or preference information that you provide to us.

When you enter GovEvents, we collect your browser type and IP address. This information is gathered for all GovEvents visitors. In addition, we store certain information from your browser using "cookies." A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. We use session ID cookies to confirm that users are logged in. These cookies terminate once the user closes the browser. By default, we use a persistent cookie that stores your login ID (but not your password) to make it easier for you to login when you come back to GovEvents. You can remove or block this cookie using the settings in your browser if you want to disable this convenience feature.

When you use GovEvents, you may set up your personal profile, send messages, perform searches and queries, form groups, set up events, and transmit information through various channels. We collect this information so that we can provide you the service and offer personalized features.

Information provided when any person registers to become a GovEvents member, or RSVPs for an event, will be collected and accessible by GovEvents.

Any improper collection or misuse of information provided on GovEvents is a violation of the GovEvents Terms of Service.

If you choose to use our registration service to allow others to register for your events, we will ask that registrant for information needed to send the invitation, such as their email address. We will send registrants an email reminding them about your event. GovEvents stores this information to send invitations and reminders, to register attendees, to allow you to see who has registered for an event, and to track the success of our programs.

Information Received From Third-Party Sources
GovEvents may also collect information about you from other sources, such as newspapers, blogs, instant messaging services, and other users of the GovEvents service in order to provide you with more useful information and a more personalized experience. By using GovEvents, you are consenting to have your personal data transferred to and processed in the United States.

We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding new services offered by GovEvents that we think you may find valuable.

When GovEvents Discloses Personal Information
We may be required to disclose user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We do not reveal information until we have a good faith belief that an information request by law enforcement or private litigants meets applicable legal standards. Additionally, we may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to comply with law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the GovEvents service or using the GovEvents name, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies.

We let you choose to share information with marketers or electronic commerce providers through on-site offers.

Change of Ownership
If the ownership of all or substantially all of the GovEvents business, or individual business units owned by GovEvents, Inc., were to change, your user information may be transferred to the new owner so the service can continue operations. In any such transfer of information, your user information would remain subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Policy.
