This policy applies to all customers of the Camden Conference who include, but are not limited to, our online customers, conference attendees, customer inquiries, speakers, press, and other individuals with whom The Camden Conference maintains business relationships or communications.
Customer Information and Use
Two primary types of information are gathered about our customers:
Financial Information is payment information used for or gathered during the registration process and includes, but is not limited to, credit card numbers, financial institutions, and expiration dates. This information is not used for any purpose other than that for which it was provided to us, and is used only to the extent necessary for processing the transaction or to facilitate future transactions. Credit card numbers are held only during the time necessary to complete an electronic transaction and are not stored perpetually in any Camden Conference database.
Professional Information includes, but is not limited to, name, address, company name, company address, phone number, fax number, and e-mail address, as well as questions answered on survey or registration forms. Data captured during a visit to the Camden Conference web site is considered professional information and may be stored in our database for our internal use. Professional information may be, upon the consent of Camden Conference, shared with other organizations for the purpose of facilitating business relationships believed by the Camden Conference to be in our customers’ best interests.
