OUR PRIVACY & SECURITY COMMITMENT
At CEED, we consider it our greatest responsibility to protect the personal information you have entrusted to us. We’ve worked for over twenty one years to become one of the most entrusted non-profits around. Today’s challenges are new, but our focus on protecting you is the same.
You should know:
We employ stringent internal and external security standards.
We use data encryption and fraud detection systems.
Our staff understands the importance of confidentiality and protection of sensitive information.
For the purpose of the Data Protection Act 1998, the data controller is CEED, 230 Hay Street, Fayetteville, NC 28301.
WEBSITE USAGE & COOKIES
We will only disclose personal information about you internally and to third parties for processing purposes associated with payment processing, the supply of goods and services, for website administration, or elsewhere when you have consented to such disclosures, or where such disclosures are required or permitted by law. These third parties we contractually bound only to use personal information to perform the services that we hire them to provide.
TRANSFER OF DATA
Third party data processors, advertisers, exhibitors and other such business relationships are required to take adequate technical and organizational safeguards to protect personal information. We also take measures to ensure that personal information transferred by us outside of CEED is adequately protected.
In the case of your use of one of our virtual products, Webinars etc., we may pass the information you provided to us to 3rd parties. Generally this will be via a process whereby you, as the user, visit or interact with a 3rd party eg: visit a stand at an exhibition. However, in some instances our virtual products are sponsored and, in such cases the data you provided to us will be given to the sponsor. Generally, we will let you know at the time of collection if a product is sponsored.
If you wish to change your contact preferences with an individual exhibitor/sponsor, please follow their own unsubscribe request details. Unsubscribing to CEED will stop CEED from contacting you in the future, but not the individual 3rd parties whom you have interacted with.
We take your contact preferences very seriously. If you would prefer for your details not to be passed to any 3rd parties as laid out in this section, you are advised not to register for the virtual product or services.
CEED may from time to time send updates about any of its services and or product and other relevant CEED information products and services. Your email will not be given to 3rd parties. By providing your email address you consent to being contacted by email for direct marketing purposes by CEED.
MOBILE PHONE CAPTURE
