The types of information we may collect include your name, email address, phone number, zip code, billing address, and any other information you choose to provide.
2. Information we collect automatically
We automatically collect certain information when you access the Websites or transact business with us, including:
3. Information we collect from sponsors, partners and other sources
We may also obtain information from other sources and combine that with information we collect about you. For example, our event sponsors may track visitors to their websites who clicked on a link in an email sent by us and they may share the aggregated data with us.
We use your personal information to process your registration and provide you with the above-and-beyond customer service for which we are known.

We always permit you to opt out or unsubscribe from emails. However, if you opt out of receiving emails related to current event registrations, you may miss important information or changes relating to the event, for which RFE assumes no responsibility.
