For this policy, “Personal Information” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual. We obtain personal information relating to you from various sources described below. If you do not provide personal information when requested, you may not be able to benefit from our services if that information is necessary to provide you with the services or if we are legally required to collect it. Where applicable, we indicate whether and why you must provide us with your personal information, as well as the consequences of failing to do so.
Personal Information Provided Directly by You Registration, Orders, Requests, and Other Information You Provide
We collect your information, including your sign-in credentials, username and password, name, job function, e-mail address, and phone number, when you complete an order form, register to login to or use our Services, request that we contact you or provide additional information to attend an event.
If you contact us directly, such as to request information, access the Services, or connect with Customer Support, we may receive additional information about you, such as your name, email address, phone number, and the content, date, and time of your message, and our reply. We also may receive other information you may voluntarily choose to provide.
Third-Party Account Credentials
To use certain services, you may provide BRIDGENTECH with credentials (e.g. username and password, first and last name, and phone number) that grant you access to third-party websites and services.
Information We Collect About You When You Use the Services
When you interact with and use our Services, we receive information about your device, which may include, web browser type, operating system version, mobile device model, device manufacturer and model, language and regional settings, your Internet Service Provider (ISP), unique device identifiers.
We automatically receive information about your interactions with our Services, like the pages or other content you view, the dates and times of your interactions, the searches you conduct, or how often you use our Services.
We infer your location from information we collect (for example, your IP address indicates the general geographic region from which you are connecting to the Internet). We aggregate and anonymize your location data at the regional level. We may use location information to provide you with features, notifications, marketing, or other content that is influenced by your location (such as showing you the Services in your local language).
Cookies and Similar Technologies
When you use our services, we and our third-party service providers may collect information from you through cookies, web beacons, web server logs, and similar technologies. A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer or mobile device. We may utilize both single-session (temporary) and multi-session persistent cookies. Temporary cookies last only as long as your web browser is open and are used for technical purposes such as enabling better navigation on our services. Once you close your browser, the cookie disappears. Persistent cookies are stored on your computer or device for longer periods and are used for purposes including tracking the number of unique visitors to our services and information such as the number of views a page gets, how much time a user spends on a page, and other pertinent web statistics. This information identifies your browser to our servers when you visit the services and also helps us in remembering your preferences from each session and gives us an enhanced user experience.
We use different types of first and third-party cookies on the services for several reasons. First-party cookies are those that we place on your computer or device through the services; third-party cookies are cookies that another party places on your computer or device through our services.
- To track user trends and patterns. This helps us better understand and improve areas of the Services that our users find valuable.
- To provide you with personalized content (your user preferences, your default language, device, and browser information so we can identify you across devices and personalize the content you see).
- For us or our service providers or other third parties to advertise to you, provide social media features, and analyze our traffic.
We also share information about your use of our services with our social media, advertising, and analytics partners. We use the information from cookies to provide services better tailored to our users’ needs.
For more information on the cookies we use and how you can manage them, adjust the settings on your browser. Please note that if you disable functional cookies on your browser, some parts of the services may not work fully.
Social Media Plugin
We offer social media plug-ins for companies that may include Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, and Weibo. For example, we have Facebook like and share buttons and a tweet button for Twitter, that offer certain interactive features and we and the respective social media company track your interactions with these functions. Additionally, even if you do not choose to use these plug-ins, the relevant company may still collect certain tracking information about you and share it with us.
Cross device tracking
We use data analytics companies, advertising networks, or social media companies, as well as features offered by data analytics services, to engage in ‘cross-device tracking.’ Cross-device tracking occurs when platforms, publishers, and advertising technology companies try to connect a consumer’s activity across smartphones, tablets, desktop computers, and other connected devices. The goal of cross-device tracking is to enable companies to link a consumer’s behavior across devices.
Information We Obtain from Third Parties
We may receive information about you from our third-party partners, such as business or marketing partners. We may combine this information with the other information we collect about you to provide more useful information to you regarding our Services. This information may include, for example, your name, address, and billing information. We also receive information when you register through a BRIDGENTECH partner (e.g. a partner who co-hosts an event, webinar, or whitepaper).
When You Apply for a Career Opportunity
Our Site provides career information at BRIDGENTECH, and the option to submit your application, resume, and/or CV. We use a third-party provider to collect job applications. Your provision of personal information in connection with an online job application is voluntary. You determine the extent to which you provide personal information. Please note that if you decide not to provide information, it may affect the consideration of your employment, unless our receipt of such information is prohibited by applicable law.
