We collect and use your personal data mainly to keep you informed of GeekOut news and updates, to send you information regarding your purchased ticket(s), and to perform direct sales of GeekOut conference tickets.
We may use your personal data for the following purposes:
• To send you marketing communications that you have requested. These may include information and updates about the GeekOut conference itself (e.g. venue, side activities, related content, conference program and any other relevant details about the conference), our conference tickets, our conference sponsors, promotions related to our conference and tickets and promotions of our associated sponsors and partners’ products or services. This communication is based on subscription and requires your consent.
• To send you information about your conference ticket(s) that you have purchased from us
• To perform direct sales activities in cases where legitimate and mutual interest is established
• To notify you about any problems or disruptions related to the GeekOut conference
Most of our services do not require any form of registration, allowing you to visit our website without telling us who you are. However, purchasing our conference ticket(s) will require you to provide us with your personal data.
In this situation, if you choose to withhold any personal data we request, it may not be possible for you to gain access to certain parts of our website (e.g. the payment confirmation page), to sign up for relevant activities and for us to respond to you.
Certain technology based products, such as our conference mobile applications, may record information such as how often you use the application, the events that occur within the application, aggregated usage, and performance data, the site or app store from which you downloaded the app. We also use this information to inform app design development and updates. Data collected may include, but is not limited to, system model, mobile network provider, operating system, host ID, location, IP address and other information used to collect aggregate data on app usage, downloads, sessions, and frequency of use. We use this information to manage and administer our products, services and events, and to advise you of the availability of updates and new versions, enhancing our products and services.
We provide tools to help you manage your time spent at our conferences, such as event planners via our conference mobile applications and via website based agendas. Through these tools you are able to favourite sessions, provide ratings and feedback on content. This information is then anonymised and used for the purposes of assessing the relevance and suitability of content at future events.
