HeySummit is not responsible for any part of the above Additional Statements and is only responsible for the Core Privacy Statements set out hereunder:
The following Core Privacy Statements (the "Privacy Statements"), together with the Core Terms of Service and any other documents referred to herein set out we will use the data you provide us at www.HeySummit.com and/or www.app.HeySummit.com (the "Platform") and what Insight activities are ongoing there too.
Please read these Privacy Statements carefully and ensure that you understand them. You will be able to change your Privacy Preferences at any time throughout your time using the Platform and thereafter.
HeySummit’s purpose in establishing this Privacy Statement is to give you information about how HeySummit collects and processes your personal data through your use of the HeySummit Services, including any data you may provide through the HeySummit platform. If you do not agree with the terms, do not access or use the HeySummit Services, websites or any other aspect of HeySummit’s business.
This Privacy Statement applies to all users of HeySummits Platform and associated technology. It is important that you read this Privacy Statement together with any other Privacy Statement or fair processing policy we may provide on specific occasions when we are collecting, or processing, personal data about You, so that you are fully aware of how and why we are using your data. This Privacy Statement supplements other notices and privacy policies and is not intended to override them.
Data protection law in certain jurisdictions differentiates between the “controller” and “processor” of information. HeySummit and Event hosts are independent controllers of certain types of your personal data, such as your registration data (like name and email) and attendance data (like Event name, date and time of Event, and Event sessions attended). Event hosts are the controller, and HeySummit is the processor of Event data, such as information and materials submitted to, or during an Event.
We keep our Privacy Statement under regular review and it may be updated periodically. Laws, regulations, and industry standards evolve, which may make those changes necessary, or we may make changes to our services or business. We will notify you by posting an updated, date-stamped version of this Privacy Statement on our website. If we make changes that materially alter your privacy rights, we will provide notice to you in accordance with applicable law. Notice may be by posting a notice on our website, by email to you at the email address that you most recently provided to us, or by other means, consistent with applicable law. Accordingly, please keep your account information, including email address, updated.
The HeySummit Services include links to third-party websites and applications as well as to partner providers of multiple different types of services associated with a particular Event.
Clicking on links to third party websites, content or applications may allow those third parties to collect or share data about you. We do not control those third-party websites or content and are not responsible for their privacy statements or the way in which they collect or use your data.
Where you access or use third party services provided by an Event organiser, advertiser, sponsor or any other party who participates in an Event, we encourage you to request details of and read the Privacy Statement of that party. We do not control those third parties and are not responsible for their privacy statements or the way in which they collect or use your data.
Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identifying information has been removed (anonymous data).
