Information Shindig May Collect
When you interact with the Shindig Services, Shindig may collect Personal Data and other information from you, as further described below:
Personal Data That You Provide Through the Shindig Services: Shindig collects Personal Data from you when you voluntarily provide such information, such as when you contact Shindig with inquiries, respond to one of Shindig's surveys, register to be a member or use the Platform or any other Shindig Services.
The Personal Data you provide through the Shindig Services includes:
- Contact Information such as your name, physical address, email address, phone number, job role or title, and business name and/or address;
- Account Information such as your username and password, or any other information needed for secure access to your Shindig account;

- Payment Method Information such as credit/debit card numbers, third-party payment provider account data, or any other transactional information that we may receive when you pay for Shindig Services.
Shindig does not use collected Personal Data to create profiles of its users’ personal preferences and interests, but other users you engage with through the Shindig Services may infer certain characteristics or other details about you based on your event participation information and any other relevant Personal Data you provide while using the Shindig Services
Device Information: When you use certain Shindig Services, we may automatically collect certain information about your computer, browser or device, such as your IP address, time zone, and certain cookie identifiers related to your device. Shindig will treat such device information as Personal Data to the extent the device information is reasonably capable of identifying a particular individual.
Non-Identifiable Data: When you interact with Shindig through the Web Site and certain other Shindig Services, Shindig receives and stores certain personally non-identifiable information. Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. Shindig may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by Shindig affiliates, agents or service providers. Shindig Services may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to Shindig's Web Site, the number of visitors to each page of Shindig's Web Site, and the domain names of Shindig's visitors' Internet service providers. It is important to note that, generally, no Personal Data is available or used in this process. To the extent any such information is reasonably capable of identifying a particular person, we will treat it as device information as described above.
Aggregated Personal Data: In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Shindig Services, Shindig often conducts research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to Shindig. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and Shindig may share this aggregate data with its affiliates, agents and business partners. This aggregate information has been altered so it is not reasonably capable of identifying you personally. Shindig may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe Shindig's business to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
By using the Shindig Services, you are authorizing us to gather and retain information, including Personal Data, related to the provision of Shindig Services.

Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties: Shindig, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. When Shindig employs another company to perform a necessary business-related function on our behalf, Shindig only provides them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.
Legal Requirements:Shindig may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of Shindig, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Shindig Services or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.
The Shindig Services may allow you to share information, including Personal Data, with third-party services and social networking websites, such as Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and LinkedIn. Depending on the privacy settings you have established with the applicable social media platform, and whether you use such platform in connection with the Shindig Services, you may encounter targeted advertisements based on your browsing behavior before and after you use the Shindig Services. We do not share your Personal Data with these social media providers unless you direct the Shindig Services to do so. Their use of the information will be governed by their privacy policies, and you may be able to modify your privacy settings with these entities. Please consult these third parties’ privacy policies before using their platforms to make sure you are comfortable with the level of sharing.
Your Rights and Choices
Depending on where you reside, you may have the following rights with regard to Shindig’s collection, use and sharing of your Personal Data on or through the Shindig Services:
- The right to request details about what Personal Data we collect, use, disclose or sell about you;
- The right to request the deletion of Personal Data we have collected or maintain about you;
- If applicable, the right to opt-out of any sale of your Personal Data; and

Any removal of Personal Data or other information by Shindig does not ensure or guarantee complete or comprehensive removal in all places. The information may have been shared or reposted by other parties, or federal or state law may require maintenance of the content or information. Shindig will do its best to accommodate any deletion request you make, but we cannot guarantee we can remove all Personal Data in every instance. Therefore, please be as specific as possible in your request. If the request relates to information we need to make certain Shindig Services function properly for you, you may not be able to use those Services properly moving forward.
Shindig reserves the right to maintain proper records as required by law, or for otherwise legitimate business purposes to the extent permitted by law, even if such records contain your Personal Data.
You may grant an authorized agent written permission to submit requests regarding your Personal Data, but we may deny authorized agent requests if we are unable to verify your identity directly as the subject of the Personal Data at issue.
Shindig is required to verify the identity of any person or entity that requests the disclosure or deletion of Personal Data. If you have a password-protected account with us, we will use our existing authentication procedures to verify your identity. For most other requests, Shindig will ask you to provide information that matches at least two pieces of Personal Data we store about you before responding to your request. If you would like to request the specific pieces of your Personal Data that Shindig has collected, or if you would like us to delete highly sensitive information, you will need to match at least three pieces of information we store about you, and you must provide a signed declaration under penalty of perjury that you are the consumer whose Personal Data you are requesting.
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with Personal Data if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the Personal Data relates to you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use Personal Data provided in a verifiable request related to Personal Data in order to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.
Some browsers have a “do not track” feature that lets you tell web sites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. As referenced above, Shindig does not sell any Personal Data collected through the Shindig Services, and the Shindig Services are not currently configured to respond to “do not track” or similar automated privacy controls. To learn more about ways to possibly opt-out of certain kinds of tracking that occur when you browse the Internet and lead to targeted advertising, visit the Network Advertising Initiative website and the Digital Advertising Alliance website. Options you select are browser- and device-specific, and there is no guarantee that these industry-provided opt-out tools will prevent all targeted advertising.
