Credential/badge scanning during the event
IECEG event co-sponsors, exhibitors, and other third parties may directly request your personal information at their exhibit booths or presentations. Providing your information to them is optional, and you should review their privacy policies to address your particular needs and concerns about how they will treat your personal information.
If during the event you attend a session or program hosted by an exhibitor other than IECEG, you understand and agree that when you present your badge for scanning or when you provide personal data, that information will go to a non-IECEG entity and IECEG takes no responsibility for how that company uses your personal information.
Usage of photographic and video material taken at IECEG events
To comply with global data privacy laws, IECEG imposes certain restrictions on the use of multimedia at its events (e.g. photography, video, audio, online streaming, and all future mediums). An attendee is permitted to use hand-held cameras and/or smart phones to take photographs and capture digital images for personal, non-commercial use, provided the photography is not disruptive. Photographs may not be published, sold, reproduced, transmitted, distributed or otherwise commercially exploited in any manner whatsoever.
IECEG may hire professional service providers (photo/video/streaming/audio) to document and display the event experience. IECEG may also use social media (e.g. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn) to: (i) post real-time photos and videos to its social media feeds; and (ii) display select submissions from those feeds on monitors throughout the event venue. Attendees and sponsors are encouraged to capture their event experiences and post their own social content from the event (text, photos, audio, video, streaming), provided it does not infringe upon the rights of any attendee, sponsor, third party, or IECEG. Such infringement would include, but is not limited to, defamation or infringement of intellectual property rights. In the event an attendee requires a release or permission to protect the rights of a third party, obtaining such a release or permission shall be the sole responsibility of the attendee.
By attending the event, you acknowledge and agree as follows: (a) IECEG may edit and use footage it captures at the event for marketing and promotional activities and for any other lawful purpose in the ordinary course of its business; and (b) due to the prevalence of mobile recording devices in today’s world, IECEG disclaims all liability for the capture of your image in any multimedia format by other attendees at the event.
