We may provide your personal information to companies that provide services to help us with our business activities such as funding, credit bureaus, credit card processing or offering customer service.  These companies are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us.

From time to time, German Technology Day may provide personal information to third parties who administer our products and services, to customer statement producers and to mailing services that process and mail statements.

In all cases, German Technology Day limits the amount and type of information collected to that which is necessary to meet the purposes described above.  German Technology Day undertakes to keep all personal information it collects strictly confidential.  All information that does not have a specific purpose or that no longer fulfills its intended purpose will be destroyed in a secure fashion.  German Technology Day will only retain personal information for the duration of its intended use or as otherwise required by law.

In the event of a transaction including the sale of some or all of German Technology Day, personal information will generally be one of the transferred business assets and, this, will become subject to a different privacy policy.

We may also disclose your personal information as required by law to comply with a subpoena or similar legal process when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request.

In addition, from time to time, we may ask you to confirm your consent to receive our emails.
