Our Information Collection, Use and Disclosure Practices Personal Information Provided Voluntarily by the User:
You may be asked to provide or otherwise voluntarily provide Personal Information when you participate in various services and offerings available through our websites, when you contact us via phone, mail, or otherwise, and when you perhaps participate in things like related promotions. Unlike some networks, we only ask for a verified email address and name as part of the initial email sign up process.
Though you may access and use portions of our websites without providing any Personal Information, in order to take advantage of the full capabilities of our websites and to obtain access to, and use of, many of the features of our websites, you must provide certain Personal Information. For example, in order to register for email alerts through our websites and to request information about services you must provide certain Personal Information.
We may use Personal Information you provide to us for our business purposes, such as (i) to allow you to access areas of the website, (ii) to confirm your identity, (iii) for marketing services to you and to customize this advertising and marketing information (iv) to carry-out promotions, including but not limited to contests surveys and related promotions that you have entered; (v) to provide the services and products you request and to respond to your other requests and inquiries, (vi) to enhance our service offerings; and (vii) to adjust our websites to your personal preferences. Except as specifically provided in the following paragraph, we will not sell or rent or otherwise share the Personal Information you provide to us with third parties and you will have the opportunity to opt out from any communication you receive from MSE or its network.
We may share Personal Information you provide to us with certain third parties that perform services on our behalf. Those third parties may host our websites; provide certain features or functionality; print or send mailings or emails (including marketing materials); provide the services you request, analyse data; or otherwise assist us with the operation of our business. Those third parties are not authorized to use or disclose Personal Information for any purpose other than to perform the services designated by My Student Events. We may also provide the Personal Information you provide to us to a third party if we are required by law or litigation so to disclose such Personal Information. For example, we may be required to disclose Personal Information to respond to a court order or other legal process. Finally, the Personal Information you provide to us may be transferred as an asset in connection with a merger or sale involving all or part of My Student Events or as part of a corporate reorganization, stock sale or other change of control. However, this will not affect your rights to discontinue from us holding any of your personal information or opting out of emails or communications in line with GDPR requirements.
Information Collected from Other Sources:
We may obtain information about you from other sources, such as companies that update and verify email and physical addresses, for the purpose of updating and enhancing our files.
Automatically Collected Information:
We will use the information we automatically collect through your access and use of our websites to determine how our websites are accessed and used. For example, this information will allow us (i) to determine which pages are the most popular with users, (ii) determine if our websites are working properly, and (iii) to improve the user-experience on our websites. We do not use automatically collected information to identify a particular user.
We may aggregate and use certain non-personally identifiable information for research or marketing purposes and may share, sell and rent or trade that information and statistical data derived from such information with our marketing partners, advertisers, or other third parties for research or marketing purposes.

You may avoid having this information collected by avoiding clicking on URL links in our email communications.
