SELinux Symposium Privacy Statement
SELinux Symposium, LLC (the Symposium or "we") knows that you care how
information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we
will do so in a sensible manner. This Privacy Statement describes the
information we will collect about you and how we will use that information. By
accessing this site, you are consenting to the information collection and use
practices described in this Privacy Statement.
This Privacy Statement was last updated on December 1, 2005.
When you register with the Symposium, the personal information we collect may
include your name, title, employer or organization name, work e-mail, work phone,
work or home address, information about your job function, information about
your company/employer, and credit card information. We also may ask other
questions for statistical purposes. All of the foregoing is referred to in this
Privacy Statement as your Personal Information. The Symposium retains the
Personal Information collected in the course of registration and will share it
only as described below.
We use your Personal Information primarily to
register you for the SELinux Symposium and associated tutorials. The Symposium
may from time to time use other companies to provide limited services related to
your registration, such as credit card processing, answering customer questions,
and conducting follow-up surveys, and other similar services. We will only
provide those companies the Personal Information they need to deliver the
service they have been contracted to provide. They are required to maintain the
confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using that
information for any other purpose.
We also use your Personal Information to improve site content; to respond to
visitors' interests, needs and preferences; to track participation demographics,
and, potentially, to develop new programs and services. To accomplish these
goals, the information collected by the Symposium may be used to produce written
assessment reports, intended only for internal use by the Symposium (including
use by Symposium affiliates, such as the parent and subsidiaries of the
Symposium). In addition, from time to time the Symposium may aggregate the
statistical information collected to create reports to be shared with
unaffiliated third parties involved with the Symposium (such as sponsors) but
such reports will not include any individual Personal Information.
Except as required by law or as described in the Disclaimer below, we will not
otherwise share your Personal Information without your prior consent.
Cookies are files that contain information created by a web
server that can be stored on your machine for use either during a particular
session ("session" cookie) or for future use ("persistent" cookie). The
Symposium may use both session and persistent cookies to facilitate, track and
limit automated activity, and to assist in the collection of site visitation
statistics. Cookies are not used to disseminate significant information about
users over the Internet. If you decline the attachment of any cookie, you may
not have access to the full benefits of the site.

movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for
aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable

ALTHOUGH WE USE COMMERCIALLY REASONABLE EFFORTS TO PRESERVE USER PRIVACY, WE MAY
NEED TO DISCLOSE PERSONAL INFORMATION WHEN (I) REQUIRED BY LAW, SUCH AS WHERE WE
HAVE A GOOD-FAITH BELIEF THAT SUCH ACTION IS NECESSARY TO COMPLY WITH A CURRENT

ANY PARTNERS, SERVICE PROVIDERS, OR OTHER THIRD PARTIES. AS NOTED ABOVE, WE MAY
SHARE AGGREGATE DATA WITH UNAFFILIATED THIRD PARTIES WHEN WE CAN DO SO WITHOUT
SHARING PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT IS IDENTIFIABLE TO YOU.
This web site takes commercially reasonable precautions to
protect our users' Personal Information. We use a variety of security
technologies and procedures to help protect Personal Information from
unauthorized access or disclosure. For example, we store Personal Information on
computer servers with limited access that are located in controlled facilities.

card number) over the Internet, we protect it through the use of encryption,
such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
