Privacy Policy:

At CONNEX INTERNATIONAL, we value your privacy, and Connex has created this Privacy Policy to describe generally how Connex collects, uses and transfers the Personal Information about you that is collected by Connex through the Site. The term “Personal Information” means information that identifies you personally, alone or in combination with other information available to us. Your Personal Information may include your name, your e-mail address or your telephone number.

Please review this Privacy Policy. By using the Site or by otherwise providing any Personal Information to Connex you are consenting to the collection, use and disclosure of your personally identifiable information as set forth in this Privacy Policy. If you do not consent to the use of your Personal Information as described in this Privacy Policy, please do not provide any Personal Information about yourself to Connex.

Collection and Use of Personal Information: We will ask you to provide us with information that personally identifies you or allows us to contact you (“Personal Information”) when, among other things; you register on any Connex Sites, use one of our services, fill out a survey, make a request for information or enter a sweepstakes or contest through the Connex Sites. Because of the nature of our products and services, we must collect Personal Information such as first and last name and email address, from moderators, participants and other users of our services. During the registration process we collect contact information such as, first and last name, mailing address, company name, title or position, e-mail address, and phone number. We may also collect financial information such as a valid credit card number to process payment for service.

Service Use:  We will use the Personal Information that you provide us in these circumstances to operate the Connex Sites, to provision, deliver, operate features, bill and collect for services as well as provide information that you request from the Connex Sites. We may use your Personal Information to notify you about updates or free upgrades to products you have previously purchased or to inform you about critical technical issues relating to our services. Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications if you wish to continue using our services. Our products and services by necessity require us to provide some Personal Information to third parties. For example, when you use Connex services to conduct a meeting, we will provide some Personal Information about each participant to you as the moderator as well as to other participants in your meeting. In addition, we will share some of your Personal Information with credit card companies as necessary to bill and collect for our services.

Secondary Use:  Unless you instruct us not to do so, Connex may also use the Personal Information that you provide us to contact you regarding additional or new services and features offered by Connex special offers by Connex, third party promotions that are administered by Connex, or other information regarding Connex and our services. If you do not wish to receive such contact, please let us know by emailing us at  webmaster@connexintl.com.

Referral UseWe may use Personal Information that you provide us if you elect to use our referral services. If you elect to inform a friend about our site, we ask you for your friend’s name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting the friend to visit the site. To request the removal of this information from our database, your friend may contact Connex by sending a message to webmaster@connexintl.com.

Supplementation of Information: At times it is necessary for us to supplement the information we receive from you with information from third party sources. For example, Connex verifies the billing address on all credit card transactions and may obtain credit reports for corporate customers. The information obtained from these third party sources is maintained in a manner consistent with our Privacy Policy.

If Connex shares any Personal Information with third-parties, it does so to the extent allowed by law and regulation. Connex may share the Personal Information about you with its third party service providers for or on behalf of Connex. These companies are not authorized to use your Personal Information for any other purpose and they are bound by contract to treat all of your Personal Information as confidential. Connex may also share your Personal Information with Connex’s corporate affiliates, which can use your information only in the manner that Connex does.

Disclosure for Legal Purposes: We may disclose Personal Information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary: (a) to conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on us or our affiliates, (b) in the event of a tax audio or other investigation, (c) to protect and defend our rights or property or those of our users, (d) to act immediately to protect the personal safety of our users or the public, (e) in connection with a merger, consolidation or sale of substantial assets of Connex or (f) as necessary to ensure compliance with the terms and conditions and policies regarding the use of our services. In addition, if Connex sells assets to another entity, or is acquired by, or merged with, another entity, Connex may provide to such entity Personal Information that is related to that part of our business that was sold to or merged with the other entity without your consent.

Access: After you create a moderator or participant account to use services offered by Connex, Connex will send you a confirmation that includes some or all of the Personal Information that we obtained from your account creation. You will not receive a confirmation in other cases in which you may provide Personal Information to Connex, such as when joining an ad-hoc meeting or scheduled event, or when accessing stored documents or recordings. Whenever possible, we will take reasonable steps to give you the opportunity to confirm and/or modify Personal Information associated with your moderator or participant account through the content management web-based interface or client interface. Alternatively, you may contact us at webmaster@connexintl.com to update or change your Personal Information, as well as change your email subscription status to receive our newsletter, email marketing communications and third-party promotions.

The Personal Information that we collect from you is stored in secure operating environments that are not available to the general public. In the case of credit card numbers and other financial information we redirect you to a secure server and will notify visitors through a pop-up screen on our site.
