FooEvents follows the following principles in order to protect your privacy:
• We do not collect more information than is necessary;

• We do not keep your data if it is no longer needed;
• We do not spread your data to third parties without your consent.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
5. CONTACT FORMS
We use contact forms on this website to allow customers and visitors to sign-up to mailing lists, respond to surveys, submit support tickets and get in touch with us.
For customer service and corporate governance purposes, we archive the following personal information that is submitted through any contact form indefinitely in our website’s database: your full name, email address and IP address.
FooEvents will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees and contractors, as described above, FooEvents discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when FooEvents believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of FooEvents, third parties or the public at large.
If you are a FooEvents customer and have opted in to receive news and updates from us, FooEvents may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with FooEvents and our products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.
FooEvents takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
As part of our security measures we have implemented HTTPS across the entire website and encrypt data flow between the client browser and web server.
