Other Important Notices Regarding Our Privacy Practices.

Third Party Sites. This Privacy Policy does not address, and we are not responsible for, the privacy, information or other practices of any third parties, including without limitation any of our affiliates and any third party operating any site to which the Sites contain a link. The inclusion of a link on the Site does not imply endorsement of the linked site by us.

Opt-Out. If you no longer wish to receive marketing-related emails from us on a going-forward basis, or if you would prefer that we do not share Personal Information about you on a going-forward basis, you may opt-out of receiving such marketing-related emails or from such sharing by sending an email containing your request to privacy@performline.com.

We will endeavor to comply with your request as soon as reasonably practicable and no later than thirty (30) days after a request from an EU data subject. For your protection, we will only implement opt-out requests with respect to the email address that you use to send us your request, and we may need to verify your identity before implementing your request. Please note that if you opt-out as described above, we will not be able to remove your Personal Information from the databases of our affiliates with which we have already shared your Personal Information (i.e., to which we have already provided your Personal Information as of the date that we implement your opt-out request). If you wish to cease receiving marketing-related emails from such affiliates, please contact such affiliates directly or utilize any opt-out mechanisms set forth in their respective privacy policies or marketing-related emails.

Accessing, Changing or Suppressing Personal Information. If you would like to access, change, suppress or otherwise limit our use of your Personal Information that has been previously provided to us, you may contact us by sending an email containing your request to privacy@performline.com . PerformLine acknowledges that EU and Swiss individuals have the right to access the Personal Information that we maintain about them.  An EU or Swiss individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data, should direct his query to privacy@performline.com.  For your protection, we will only implement such requests with respect to the Personal Information associated with the email address that you use to send us your request, and we may need to verify your identity before implementing your request. If you’re located in the EU, scroll down to see any additional rights you may have.  In each event, you must clearly indicate the information that you wish to have changed or suppressed or clearly indicate the limitations you wish to put on our use of your Personal Information. We will endeavor to comply with your request as soon as reasonably practicable. We may need to retain certain information for recordkeeping purposes, and there may also be residual information that will remain within our databases and other records, which will not be removed therefrom.

Retention Period. We will retain your Personal Information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. For example, if you are customer and have provided Personal Information, we will hold such information for so long as you remain a customer. You may request that we change or delete your Personal Information by following the instructions above.

Note Regarding the Use of the Sites by Children: The Sites are not directed to individuals under the age of thirteen (13), and we request that such individuals do not provide Personal Information through the Site.

Special Data Protections for EU Data Subjects. As of May 25, 2018, the General Data Privacy Regulation (“GDPR”) affords additional rights to EU data subjects. Those rights include the right to complain to EU Supervisory Authorities and the right to access, correct and delete certain personal data processed by PerformLine by visiting our EU data subject access request page. Moreover, with respect to EU data subjects, Personal Information includes pseudonymous data such as an IP address, a mobile advertising ID or a cookie ID. We process certain Personal Information provided by Users under contractual necessity.  For example, we require the billing details of our Users located in the EU to process payment for conferences. We collect contact details from EU data subjects via our Sites with consent and ask for consent for our Sites to place cookies onto EU desktops. Where consent is our legal basis for processing, we endeavor to make it just as easy to withdraw consent as it is to provide consent. Where PerformLine receives from an EU data subject a request to cease processing of data via one of the choice mechanisms listed above, PerformLine will stop all data processing with respect to the opted-out browser or device unless such processing is required by law. The retention period for data from EU data subjects will be based on the specific data collected and the purpose of processing such data.
