Webinar and Event Registration
InsideScientific organizes and hosts various online and in-person events as a service to the scientific research and technology community. In order to execute these services we use online tools to collect registration information, including personal identification information. In these cases, users must actively agree to register and opt-in based on the registration terms. Tools that we currently use to collect registrations for virtual events and webinars include:
- Engage Webinars, by Intrado: https://www.west.com/legal-privacy/
- GoToWebinar, LogMeIn: https://www.logmeininc.com/legal
- Zoom: https://zoom.us/privacy
- BigMarker: https://www.bigmarker.com/privacy
If you plan to register and attend events that are organized by InsideScientific, please familiarize yourself with the privacy-policy of the tool used in conjunction with that event or experience. Notification and links to these privacy policies will be provided as part of the registration process.
In addition, as part of registering for events that we plan, host or promote on behalf of our business partners, you also agree to receive communications via email about similar events, programs, and offers from InsideScientific. In many cases, event sponsors will also be noted as a recipient of the personal information you share during the registration process.
