You can visit most of the STORCH website without disclosing personally-identifiable information and/or confidential, non-public information of your business (in either case, as used herein, “private information”). However, you may choose to provide us with your private information, for example when you contact us, register for seminars, activities and programs available on the STORCH website, complete a survey or assessment available on the STORCH website, or when you request information or services. You also may decide to provide us voluntarily with the private information of a third person, such as your spouse, colleague or friend. In such case, we assume that you have the unrestricted permission of such person to provide such private information to STORCH.
If you register for an event with STORCH, we will use the registration information that you submit to process your request and send you additional information about the event. For online seminars, we may require your email address to provide you with login information. In addition, we may contact you about future events that may be of interest to you.
If you subscribe to a newsletter from STORCH, we will use the registration information that you submit to send you the newsletter(s) you request. We may also e-mail or mail you messages and other newsletters containing information which we believe may be of interest to you. If we contract with a third party to deliver the e-mails, we will share registration information with that party only for the purposes of delivering the e-mail.
Private information you provide to STORCH including private information of a third party, such as your spouse, colleague and friend may be collected, stored, used and transferred as necessary for STORCH to carry out business or seek potential business in the future with you and/or your company. If you provide us with private information, whether in the form of an e-mail, business card, orally during business meeting or otherwise, we assume that you have granted us permission to collect, store, use and transfer such information with no limitations. We also assume that you have unrestricted permission from the third party for the transfer of its private information.
