MeetToMatch respects your privacy and is committed to protect the personal information that you share with us. We may need your personal information to provide services that you request, or you may have the option to choose to provide us with your personal information.
MeetToMatch complies with the U.S.–E.U. Safe Harbor framework and the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal data from European Union member countries and Switzerland. MeetToMatch also complies with the Dutch Personal Data Protection Act (WBP) and European General Data Protection Regulation.
1.1. Information Collection
Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, email address, credit card number, a company or home, postal or other physical address, other contact information, title, birth date, gender, occupation, industry, personal or product interests, photos and other information when needed to provide a service you requested.
When you browse our Website (including www.meettomatch.com), you do so anonymously, unless you have previously indicated that you wish MeetToMatch to remember your login and password. We might log your IP address to give us an idea of which part of our Website you visit and how long you spend there. But we do not link your IP address to any personal information unless you have logged in to our Website. Like many other Websites, the MeetToMatch Website may use a standard technology called a “cookie” to collect information about how you use the site and to ensure functional operation of the website.
MeetToMatch collects Personal information when you register for a MeetToMatch account, when you use or purchase certain MeetToMatch products or services, when you register to attend a conference, seminar or trade fair or participate in an online survey, when you ask to be included in an email or other mailing list, other product promotions, or when you submit your information to MeetToMatch for any other reason. From time to time, MeetToMatch receives personal information from business partners and vendors. MeetToMatch only uses such information if it has been collected in accordance with acceptable privacy practices consistent with this Policy and applicable laws.
Access to certain MeetToMatch Web pages require a login and a password. The use of those Web pages, and the information or programs downloadable from those sites, may be governed by a written agreement between your employer and MeetToMatch. Your personal information may be retained by MeetToMatch to verify compliance with the agreement, log software licenses granted, to track software downloaded from those pages, or track usage of other applications available on those pages for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce agreements.
1.2. How we use information collected
When personal information is collected, we will inform you at the point of collection the purpose for the collection. MeetToMatch does not intend to transfer your personal information to third parties without your consent, except under the limited conditions described below.
MeetToMatch uses information for several general purposes: to fulfill your requests for certain products and services, to personalize your experience on our Website, to keep you up to date on the latest product announcements, software updates, special offers or other information we think you’d like to hear about either from us or from our business partners, and to better understand your needs and provide you with better services. We may also use your information to send you, or to have our business partners send you, direct marketing information or contact you for market research. We may also use Google AdWords tracking code, or a social media pixel, to track the impact of some of our marketing programs and use this for re-targetting purposes.
The profile you create on MeetToMatch event (so called instance) is available for other registered people within that same event. The default setting is that contact information (email address and phone number) is only made available to someone with whom you have a confirmed meeting. The event organizer may change this setting and is required to inform you if this information is always shared with others at the event.
If you choose to provide us with your personal information, we may transfer that information, within MeetToMatch or to MeetToMatch’s third party service providers, including across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world.
If you wish to change your username, email address, deactivate or delete your profile, please contact us at email@example.com.
1.3. Data retention period
For the purpose of setting up meetings at an event, the data you provide is used for planning meetings until the event has ended. The instance stays active on the internet for one to three months, with the purpose that you can see who was at the event and with whom you had a meeting.
Your personal information is then archived up to two years, with the purpose that when you sign up to a new event, you get the option to retrieve your profile from a previous event.
As for newsletters, you will stay signed up until you unsubscribe.
In addition your personal information will be stored as long as needed to fulfill any legal or tax obligations. Example: invoices need to be archived for at least seven years according to European legislation.
1.4. Right to be Forgotten
If you wish to change your username, email address, deactivate or delete your profile, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If an account or profile was created without your knowledge or authorization, please contact us at email@example.com.
If you wish to subscribe to our newsletter(s), we will use your name and email address to send the newsletter to you. Follow the unsubscribe instructions included in these emails to unsubscribe from newsletters, or you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We may use a third party service provider to conduct these surveys or contests; that company will be prohibited from using our users’ personal information for any other purpose.
