IF, FOR ANY REASON, YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS POLICY, PLEASE STOP USING THE WEBSITE IMMEDIATELY, DO NOT PROVIDE US WITH ANY INFORMATION AND DO NOT USE OUR SERVICES.
This Policy does not address the data collection, management, and information usage practices and policies of other individuals, entities, and websites that that may link to our Website, refer you to our Services, or otherwise relate to our Services. We encourage you to review the privacy polices of those other individuals, entities, and websites.
1. Information We Collect
The information we collect depends upon how you interact with us through the Website. We offer some services and content that do not require you to register for an account or provide any personal information to us. For example, you can learn more about us, look up upcoming events and meetings, and read materials without providing personal information.
Information you give us. We do not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you voluntarily submit such information to us. We collect personally identifiable information (“Personal Data”) about you that you provide to us while using our Services. Personal Data includes any and all information that can identify you as a specific individual, including, without limitation, your name, title, physical address, phone number, credit card number, e-mail address, linkedin profile, the pages you visit , and your log-in name, IP address, mobile carrier, or data services provider and any other information you provide to us.
When you create an account with us, we will also require you to create a password. You can help protect your personally identifiable information by using a combination of letters, numbers and characters in your password, changing your password often, using a secure web browser, and signing off our Website when you are finished with its use. We also encourage you to choose a password that is unique to our Website and not recycle your password for another site or company.
Emails. When you send emails, we retain emails in order to process your request, respond to your inquiry, and improve our services. If you report a problem with our Website, there may be additional details requested.
Google Analytics. We have implemented certain Google Analytics Advertising Features. Google Analytics helps us analyze a user’s behavior on our Website and what online channels they used to find the Website. We then can create audiences based on users’ behavior on the Website to send them relevant advertising. You may opt-out of these features using Google Analytics’ currently available opt-outs, available here.
Other Internet Technology. In addition to Google Analytics, we use other technology, such as software, pixel tags and web beacons, which are invisible graphics on a web page or email that are programmed to collect non-personally identifiable information about your use of the Website.
We do not currently permit third parties to direct ads to you on our sites and applications but third parties may do so on other sites to which we publish content. You may choose not to receive or control targeted advertising from many ad networks and partners, data exchanges, and marketing analytics and other digital advertising and marketing service providers by clicking here.
Social Media. We collect information from social media platforms and networks that you use in connection with our Website or mobile application, or that share or allow you to share information with us, such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram. For example, if you use functionalities, plugins, widgets, or tools from social media platforms or networks in connection with our Website or mobile application, we will collect the information that you share with us, or that those social media platforms or networks share with us. For more information about social media platform and network privacy practices, please review the privacy policies and settings of the social media platforms and networks that you use.
Children. We require an individual to be at least eighteen (18) years old to be a user on our Website. This Website is not directed toward children under 13 years of age, nor do we knowingly collect information about children under 13. If you are under 13 years of age, you are not permitted to submit personal information to us. If we find out you are under 13 years of age, we will immediately, upon notice, cancel your account and delete all of your information. If a parent becomes aware any of his/her children has submitted information to us, please immediately notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Protecting Your Personal Data
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure correct use of Personal Data, we will employ reasonable and current Internet security methods and technologies. To protect credit card transactions while in transit, Thuzio currently uses Secure Socket Layer technology to encrypt Personal Data and all processing is done through Stripe. No method of transmitting information over the Internet, or storing data electronically, is 100% secure, however, and Thuzio therefore cannot provide a guaranty of absolute security.
3. How We Use the Information We Collect

4. Sharing Your Personal Data
Thuzio does not share your Personal Data, except as disclosed in this statement or in your Membership Agreement, unless we receive your consent. Thuzio may share your Personal Data with its subsidiaries and with third parties as described in the categories below:
Certain Services: In order to provide you with certain services, we may share your Personal Data with our subsidiaries or third party partners. Third-party partners consist of companies with which Thuzio has contracted in order to provide you with services or products including but not limited to events of all types. By attending a Thuzio event, Members and any guests and attendees agree that by attending a Thuzio Event or Partner Event, Members, guests and attendees hereby consent that their attendee information may be shared with Thuzio partners or third parties.
Thuzio’s Agents: Some of the operations we perform require us to hire other companies to help us with these tasks. For example, Thuzio hires companies to help us handle mail and e-mail (including sending and delivering packages, postal mail and e-mail) analyze the data we collect, market our products and services, handle credit card transactions and provide customer service. The companies we employ to help us with these tasks have access to Personal Data to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
Future Business Transfers: Our business is constantly changing. As part of that process, Thuzio may sell or buy other companies, and Personal Data may be transferred as part of these transactions. It is also possible that Thuzio, or substantially all of its assets, may be acquired by another company, whether by merger, sale of assets or otherwise, and Personal Data may be transferred as part of such a transaction.
Compliance with Law and Other Disclosures: Thuzio reserves the right to release Personal Data in order to comply with applicable law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on us. We may also release Personal Data to enforce or apply the terms and conditions applicable to our products and services, protect us or others against fraudulent or inappropriate activities, or otherwise protect the rights, property or safety of Thuzio, our affiliated companies, our customers, or others.
5. Cookies (& Persistent Local Data)
Third party cookies and pixels: We use third-party partners to track your page visits and actions within the website in order to determine what site features and content is the most popular or most used. This data is used to deliver customized content and promotions to customers, to maintain the quality of the website and to provide general statistics regarding the use of the website.
In addition, we may share web site usage information about visitors to our website to companies for the purpose of market research analysis on our website and to deliver relevant ads tailored to you based on what parts of the website you have viewed. For these purposes, we and our third-party partners may place pixel tags (also called “clear gifs”) on some of the pages you visit on our website. We will use data that that is collected using these pixel tags to serve you relevant advertisements when you are visiting other sites on the Internet. These advertisements may be targeted to specific searches you conducted on the website during earlier browsing sessions.
If you would like more information about the information collection practices of third-party advertising companies and your choices about not having this information used by these companies or opt out of online preference marketing, visit Networkadvertising.org. Without cookies, however, you may not have access to certain features on our website, including certain personalized content.
You can also delete all cookies that are already on your computer’s hard drive by searching for files with “cookie” in it. This action could affect your subsequent visits to certain web sites, including our website, by requiring that, for example, you enter your login name when you return to that website.
6. How You Can Access or Change Your Personal Data
Thuzio understands that you may want to change, access or delete your Personal Data. You have the following rights as to your information: the right to access it; the right to modify it; the right to have it deleted (if it is not required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes); and the right to opt out. More specifically:
Reviewing, Updating, and Deleting Your Information. If you have an account with us, you may review and update your account information (such as your name and contact information) online by making the appropriate selections. You may also deactivate your account and request that we delete your information by making the appropriate selections. You can also contact us at email@example.com.
Please note that:
• To protect your privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or permitting the requested changes or modifications to be made. Unfortunately, we cannot always ensure that such changes or modifications will be reflected in all iterations of your information as previously stored.
• We make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your personal information and the ability to correct the information if it is inaccurate or to delete it at your request (if it is not required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes). We may decline to process requests that we believe in good faith are unreasonable or unduly burdensome (such as requests that are repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or would be impractical to satisfy).
Deactivating Your Account. You may deactivate your account with us at any time by making the appropriate selections. If you deactivate your account and later wish to reactivate it, you will have to create a new account. If you deactivate your account, we may retain certain information associated with your account for record keeping and legal compliance purposes.
Deleting Your Personal Information. Again, you can request that we delete your personal information at any time by contacting us firstname.lastname@example.org and we will follow through on your request unless we are required to keep your information by law or for legitimate business purposes.
7. “Do Not Track”
Some browsers have a “do not track” feature that lets you tell those websites you do not want to have your online activities tracked. At this time, we do not respond to browser “do not track” signals.
8. Security & Storage
We do not store your personal information on our own servers but, instead, use third parties, who take commercially reasonable steps to safeguard and deter unauthorized access to your information. In this regard, access to this information is authorized only for those who have a business need for such access. When your information is deleted, we will do so consistent with any applicable legal requirements. Please know that no e-commerce platform, application, website, electronic database or other format or system is completely secure. Moreover, no data transmission over the Internet is completely secure nor can any be guaranteed to be totally secure, and, for this reason, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that safeguards employed will prevent the disclosure of your information.
You can help protect your personally identifiable information by using a combination of letters, numbers and characters in your password, changing your password often, using a secure web browser, and signing off our Website when you are finished with its use.
If you become aware of a security breach, please notify us immediately at Hello@Thuzio.com.
