International Woodworking Fair, LLC - Privacy Policy
 
The International Woodworking Fair, LLC (IWF) respects your privacy and recognizes the importance of protecting the privacy of all information provided by users of the IWF Web site. We will not intentionally disclose personal identifiable information about our customers or members to any third party without specific consent or prior notice to our users. "Personal identifiable information" is information that enables us to identify you, such as your email address, name, title and mailing address. The following policy guidelines were developed with a fundamental respect for our users’ right to privacy to guide our relationships with our users.

IWF reserves the right, at any time, to modify this Privacy Policy. If we make revisions that change the way we collect, use, or share personal information, we will post those changes in this Privacy Policy. You should review this Privacy Policy periodically so that you keep up to date on our most current policies and practices. We will note the effective date of the latest version of our Privacy Policy at the end of this Privacy Policy.
 
 Please read this Privacy Policy carefully to understand IWF’s views and practices regarding your personal information and how we will treat it. By visiting this Platform, you are freely accepting and consenting to the practices in this Privacy Policy. You may withdraw your consent at any time and for any reason with effect to future data processing by contacting us at the address listed below in the Section titled “Future contact from IWF and the “opt-out” option”. Without your consent, IWF will use personal information, only insofar as such processing is permitted by applicable law (e.g., for the performance of a contract or agreement between IWF and you) or where such processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which IWF is subject.
 
Does IWF request personal information?
Yes, we do. IWF may ask for general information in some instances. This may include your name, E-mail address, and other personal information when you sign up for our services by filling out online forms. We may also ask for such information at other times, such as when you request information or enter areas with restricted access.
 
IWF will not disclose any of your personal information, except as described below; when we believe, in good faith, that the law requires it; or to protect the rights or property of IWF. IWF does disclose aggregated user statistics (for example, 75% of our users are interested in specific topic areas) in order to describe our services to prospective exhibitors, advertisers, and other third parties, and for other lawful purposes.
 
Under confidentiality agreements, IWF may match user information with third party data. If and when we do match user information, we endeavor to keep personal information confidential from those third parties.
 
Additionally, if you elect to contact exhibitors, partners, associates or make a purchase from our site, the information obtained during your visit to these areas, and the information that you give such as your credit card number and contact information, is provided to the person of record. These can be IWF or third party companies. These companies have separate privacy and data collection practices. IWF has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies.

How does IWF collect my personal information?
Through your interactions with the Platform, IWF collects “personal information,” which is information that identifies an individual or relates to an identified individual. Non-personal information means information that does not directly identify an individual. We collect both types of information about you.
 
The following provides some examples of the type of data that we collect from you:
 
 Context  Types of Data and Reasoning for Collection
 Registration Information  When you create an Account, we may collect your name, contact information, and other
 Registration Information. Such information shall be associated with your Account, and you may
 update such information by editing the information associated with your Account.
 Demographic Information  We may collect personal information from you, such as your age, photo, or location.
 Digital Fingerprinting  We may from time to time use digital fingerprinting technologies in an effort to protect and
 ensure the integrity of our Platform. In general, digital fingerprinting technologies assign a
 unique identifier or “Machine-ID” to a user’s computer to identify and track the computer’s
 survey activity. IWF will not use digital fingerprinting technology to collect personal information,
 or track the online activities of the user of a computer, and will not disrupt or interfere with the
 use or control of a computer or alter, modify or change the settings or functionality of a
 computer. The technology will analyze publicly available information and data obtained from the
 computer’s web browser and from other publicly available data points, including without
 limitation the technical settings of the computer, the characteristics of the computer, and the
 computer’s IP address, to create a unique identifier assigned to the computer. The unique
 identifiers are typically alpha-numeric IDs and after creating the unique identifier, IWF does not
 retain the information analyzed by the technology to create the unique identifier.
 Geo-Location Information
 
 When you use one of our Applications or a badge or device provided by IWF, we may collect
 your location using GPS, Wi-Fi, cellular technology, Radio-frequency identification (RFID),
 Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacon technology, or other similar location-tracking technologies.
 IWF may capture proximity and duration information for providing personalized products and
 services, demographic analysis, or behavioral analysis. Such information, and any derived
 information, may be shared with third parties that have a relationship with IWF.
 Email Interconnectivity
 
 If you receive email from us, we may use certain tools to capture data related to when you open
 our message, click on any links or banners it contains and make purchases.
 Employment  If you apply a job posting, or become an employee, we may collect personal information
 necessary to process your application. This may include, among other things, your Social
 Security Number or tax identification number.
 Feedback/Support
 
 If you provide us feedback or contact us for support we will collect your name and e-mail
 address and possibly other personal information, as well as any other content that you send to
 us in order to reply.
 Mailing List
 
 When you sign up for one of our mailing lists we may collect your email address or postal
 address.
 Mobile Devices
 
 We may collect information from your mobile device such as unique identifying information
 broadcast from your device or hardware and software specifications.
 Order Placement or 
 Purchase
 We may collect your name, billing address, shipping address, e-mail address, phone number,
 shipping preferences, and credit card number when you place an order.
 Partner Promotion  We may collect information that you provide as part of a co-branded or sponsored promotion
 with another company or sponsor. Such information may be shared with the promotion partner
 or sponsor.
 Surveys  When you participate in a survey we may collect additional information that you provide through
 the survey. If the survey is provided by a third-party service provider, the third party’s privacy
 policy applies to the collection, use, and disclosure of your information.
 Third Party Tracking  We participate in behavior-based advertising. This means that a third party may use technology
 (e.g., a cookie) to collect information about your use of our website so that they can provide
 advertising about products and services tailored to your interests. That advertising may appear
 either on our websites, or on other websites. You can opt-out of receiving advertising based
 upon your browsing behavior from some network advertising companies by going to the Network
 Advertising Initiative and the Digital Advertising Alliance websites.
 Web Logs  We may collect information from you, including your browser type, operating system, Internet
 Protocol (IP) address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use
 the Internet), domain name, click-activity, referring website, or a date/time stamp for your visit.
 In addition to information stored by our servers, we may also use cookies and clear GIFs.
 
In addition to the information that we collect from you directly, we may also receive information about you from other sources, including third parties, business partners, our affiliates, or publicly available sources.
 
How does IWF use my personal information?

By knowing a little about you, IWF is able to deliver more relevant content, communicate with you about information you request and hence a better service, to you. IWF’s goal in collecting personal information is to provide you, the user, with the most intuitive Web experience possible. IWF may also use personal information to help target specific offers to you and to help IWF develop and improve its services. IWF may also use your personal information to:

In this process, the exhibitor never has access to individual account information.


Does IWF share my personal information?
In addition to the specific situations discussed elsewhere in this Privacy Policy, IWF may disclose personal information in the following situations:


    • Other Disclosures with Your Consent - We may ask if you would like us to share your information with other unaffiliated third parties who are not described elsewhere in this policy, and we may do so with your consent.

    • Other Disclosures without Your Consent - We may disclose personal information in response to subpoenas, warrants, or court orders, or in connection with any legal process, or to comply with relevant laws.

    • Public - Some of our Sites or Applications provide the opportunity to post comments, or reviews, in a public forum. Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online – for example by submitting online forms, or through e-mail – your information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.

    • Partner or Client Promotions and Offerings - We may offer events, contests, sweepstakes, promotions, or any other offerings with third party partners or our clients, which may be your employer.

This information may be collected through the Platform or during a IWF Event. If you decide to enter into or participate in an event, contest, sweepstakes, promotion, or other offering that is offered by IWF, or a third-party partner or client, the information that you provide may be shared with us and with them. Third party partners and clients that use IWF products and services to collect personal information must agree to abide by the same principles followed by IWF.

    • Service Providers -  We may share your personal information with service providers. Among other things service providers may help us to administer our website, plan or facilitate events or travel, conduct surveys, provide technical support, or sending marketing, promotions, and communications related to our business, payment processing, and for other legitimate purposes permitted by law.

The password protected areas of this Web site can only be accessed with a valid ID and password. You are responsible for keeping your password secret and confidential, and for notifying us if you believe that your password has been stolen or might otherwise be misused.
 
Furthermore, while we strive to protect your personal information, no security system is perfect, and IWF cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk will remain absolutely secure in all incidents. In addition, IWF exhibitors and third party Internet sites and services accessible through IWF or parties whom we inform you are collecting data in connection with sweepstakes, promotions, etc., have separate privacy and data collection practices, independent of us. IWF has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions.
