IP Address

  • We may collect IP addresses and/or click-stream data. An IP address is a number associated with the service through which you access the Internet, like your ISP (Internet service provider), your company or your university. Standing alone, your IP address is not generally personally identifiable. At times, We also use IP addresses for purposes of system administration and to report aggregate information to Our advertisers and sponsors, for example regarding the frequency with which Our guests visit various parts of the Website. We may combine this information with personally identifiable information We obtain from you directly on the Website or any other of Our other websites, or from third parties.
  • Click-stream data is information collected by Our computers when you request pages from the Website. Click-stream data may include such information as the page served, the time, the source of the request, the type of browser making the request, the preceding page view and other such non-personal information. When analyzed, this data helps Us analyze how visitors arrive at the Website, what type of content is most popular, what type of visitors in the aggregate are interested in particular kinds of content and advertising, and the like.


  • As with many websites, the Website uses a technology called “cookies.” A cookie is a collection of information that gets stored on the hard drive of your computer when browsing the Internet. These small bits of code automatically identify your browser to the Website whenever your computer is used to visit the Website. Cookies also let Us know how many people visit the Website and where visitors go on the Website, as well as non-personally identifiable information, like how many times a user has been on certain pages.
  • By tracking how and when you use the Website, cookies help Us determine which areas are popular and which are not. Improvements and updates to the Website may be based on data obtained from cookies. Accepting cookies allows you, among other things, to personalize your experience on the Website. Cookies may also allow the Website to present to you advertising which may be of interest to you. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, your browser should contain an option that allows you to disable or delete cookie data at any time. Some areas of the Website, however, may not provide you with a personalized experience if you have disabled the use of cookies.
  • We may allow other companies that are presenting advertisements on some of our pages to set and access their cookies on your computer. Other companies' use of their cookies is subject to their own privacy policies, not this one. Advertisers or other companies do not have access to cookies.

Web Beacons and Other Tracking Technology

  • The Website may use a variety of technical methods for tracking purposes, including Web beacons. Web beacons are small pieces of data that are embedded in images on the pages of websites. We also may use these technical methods to analyze the traffic patterns on the Website, such as the frequency with which Our users visit various parts of the Website. These technical methods may involve the transmission of information either directly to Us or to another party authorized by Us to collect information on Our behalf. The information from use of these technical methods may be collected in a form that is personally identifiable.


We own the information collected on or through the Website. As applicable, the information you provide to Us may be used to:

  • Contact you about the Website, technical support or inquiries;
  • Provide you with services or information you have requested;
  • Prevent fraud or potentially illegal activities and monitor and enforce Our Website Terms and Conditions;

  • Deliver, customize and target the advertising and content you see; and
  • Send you promotional material or special offers on behalf of the Organizers, Our marketing partners and/or their respective affiliates and subsidiaries and other third parties.


At times, as described below, We may share your personal information with others for various purposes:

  • Agents: We employ other businesses and individuals to perform functions on Our behalf. Examples may include Website analysis, analyzing data, processing fees for registration and other services, providing marketing assistance, and providing customer service. They may have access to personally identifiable information needed to perform their functions.
  • Sponsors: We may share your name and email address with sponsors of the Pan American Conference.
  • Aggregate Information: We may share aggregate information, such as demographics and Website usage statistics, with advertisers, sponsors or other organizations. When this type of information is shared, the other parties do not have access to your personally identifiable information.
  • Affiliates: We may share your information (including, without limitation, personally identifiable information) with related entities to the Organizers.
  • Third-Party Ad Serving and Audience and Traffic Measurement Services: We may use a third-party network advertiser to serve the advertisements on the Website or may use a traffic measurement service to analyze the traffic on the Website. Network advertisers are third parties that display advertisements based on your visits to this Website and other websites you have visited. Third-party ad serving enables Us to target advertisements to you for products or websites in which you might have an interest. Audience and Traffic Measurement Services allow Us to collect anonymous traffic and behavior information from the Website by monitoring anonymous visitor activity. Such advertisers, sponsors and/or traffic measurement services may themselves set and access their cookies on your computer if you choose to have your cookies enabled in your browser. Cookies allow third-party advertisers to show you advertisements or content. Note that any images (or any other parts of a web page) served by third parties in association with third-party cookies may serve as web beacons, which enable third parties to carry out the previously described activities. Other companies’ uses of their cookies are subject to their own privacy policies, not this one.
  • Administrative or Legal Process: We or others may disclose your personal information to third parties without notice to you in order to comply with applicable law, law enforcement agencies, to protect our or third parties’ rights, or to protect the rights of other users of the Website.

You should be aware that when you are on the Website you could be directed to other websites beyond Our control. For example, if you “click” on an advertisement, the “click” may take you off the Website onto a different website. This includes links from advertisers, sponsors and marketing partners that may use the Website's logo as part of a co-branding agreement. These other websites may send their own cookies to you, independently collect data or solicit personal information and may or may not have their own published privacy policies. If you visit a website that is linked to the Website, you should consult that website's privacy policy before providing any personal information.
