Collection of Personal Information

The Site takes the privacy of its visitors and customers very seriously. User information is collected primarily to provide a more efficient Site experience. We may request that you voluntarily supply us with personal information such as your home zip/postal code and other such information. By voluntarily providing personal information, you are consenting to the collection and use of your personal information in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy.

You may choose not to use any Service that requires the use of your personal information in a manner not described in this Privacy Policy. Your use of the Site will be considered as your consent to the use of your personal information in the way described.

The Site collects two basic types of information:

The Site only requires personally identifiable information from you when it's needed for the event.

Additionally, the Site may use your non-personally identifiable information it collects during your site visit, during your interaction with our e-mails or during your interaction with our third-party marketing efforts for other purposes including without limitation, the following:

Special note: Information we collect on how you use the Site does not include personally identifiable information unless you choose to specifically provide us with such information.

Additionally, the Site may use your information, including personally identifiable information, for special purposes. Below are a few examples of special purposes:

From time to time, the Site may enter into agreements with third party providers for web analytic and other similar services. If the Site enters into such an agreement, the Site may share your information, including personally identifiable information, with the provider or such provider may have access to and collect your information on behalf of the Site. Your information, including personally identifiable information, may be stored with the provider. Before sharing or storing any customer information with a third party provider, the Site shall ensure that any provider agrees to comply with the terms and conditions of this privacy policy. Additionally, the Site generally requires any third party provider of web analytic or other similar services to maintain industry security standards to protect your information.

Security of Personal Information

We exercise reasonable care to protect your non-public personal information. This includes storing the personal information on our servers behind a secured firewall and ensuring all transmissions to other vendors use secure encryption technology. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. So while we strive to protect your non-public personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us or receive from us. This is especially true for information you transmit to us via e-mail. We have no way of protecting that information until it reaches us. Once we receive your transmission, we maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information.

Internally, we will limit access to non-public personal information to those who need the information.

Sharing of Non-Public Personal Information

We reserve the right to, without notice to you, share non-public personal information with companies that work for us for the sole purpose of providing you with valuable services you've requested or already have through the Site. These companies may assist us in fulfilling your requests or processing your transactions. We will only share information with companies that work for us to provide marketing and other services and with non-affiliated persons and entities with whom we have entered into a joint marketing agreement, where we together market either our products or those of our marketing partner if you expressly authorize us to share this information. These companies are contractually forbidden from disclosing or using our customer information other than to carry out the purposes for which the information was disclosed. These companies are in no way authorized to sell, rent or trade your personal information. While there are such contractual obligations in place, we cannot and do not guarantee that a third party could breach its obligation and use your non-public personal information in a way contrary to our policy. We may disclose information, including non-public personal information, in special cases when we have a good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to legal requirements or comply with the legal process such as, but not limited to situations when we are required to do so by federal, state or local laws and regulations or when we receive a subpoena or are ordered by a court to do so; (b) protect and defend our rights; or (c) act to protect the interests of our users or others. Additionally, we may, without notice to you, provide aggregate statistics about visitors to the Site such as volume, traffic patterns and related site information to reputable third-party vendors, but these statistics will include no personal information.

All of our e-mail contains clear information on how to unsubscribe, and we honor all requests as quickly as possible.

Marketing or promotional e-mails

If you sign up for one of our marketing e-mails either directly or indirectly or by any other means, we will send you the marketing e-mail that you have requested. We only send these e-mails to site visitors who sign up for one of our mailing lists or who agree to future contact regarding special promotions and offers from the Site. These mailings contain clear information on how to unsubscribe, and we honor all requests as quickly as possible.

If you sign up for marketing e-mails from one of our suppliers, these e-mails will be sent directly from such supplier.  Site shall provide your email address to the specific supplier for which you have requested to receive emails.  The LVCVA and UNLV shall have no responsibility or liability for the actions or inactions of that supplier.  If you wish to unsubscribe and/or change your information with that supplier, you must contact the supplier directly.

Answering your inquiries

If you send us or phone in a question or offer a suggestion, we will use your e-mail address, telephone number or postal address to respond to you.

Monitoring Site Traffic

We collect anonymous user information by using Cookies. This enables information to be gathered about every visit to the Site. Once a user has registered on the Site, Cookies might be used to track a specific user. We use this information to enhance the user experience during future visits to the Site. We might also collect information on the browser type including plug-in versions, for example Flash or QuickTime. Another example of information we might capture is the URL where a user is entering or exiting the site.

Cookie Use

A Cookie is a small piece of information that the browser sends to the Web server with each page request. A Cookie can be saved on a user's hard drive as a small text file or it can be restricted to the computer's memory where it is removed once the browser is closed. Only the Cookies that are associated with a specific URL are sent to the Web server, Cookies that are sent from one Web server are never sent to another Web server. The LVCVA and/or UNLV uses Cookies to identify specific machines in order to gather aggregate data on how Web users are utilizing the Site. In some cases Cookies might be used to identify a specific user.

If you wish, you may set your browser to refuse cookies. However, by refusing to accept a cookie, you will not be able to access some pages on the Site. Since many websites use some form of cookie technology, setting your browser to refuse cookies may restrict your access to certain information or product offerings on the Site. Some Site cookie files remain on your computer's hard drive unless and until you manually delete the file. Site cookie files do not contain personally identifiable information that is tied to an individual users' movement through the Site.

A Site third-party advertiser cookie file may also be placed on your hard drive during your visit to our website. The purpose of these types of cookies is to collect aggregate statistics about your visit to our website. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. These cookies do not contain personally identifiable information.

Pixel/Spotlight Tags

A "pixel tag" or "spotlight tag" is a small graphic file that is included in the Web page being displayed. By virtue of its existence on specific pages further information can be gained on how users are making use of the Site. Since the browser requesting this small graphic file is no different than the browser requesting any other Web page, it is possible that a Cookie might be transmitted along with the request. This means that all the information that is identified in the "Site Traffic Monitoring" section can also be collected by the use of a "pixel" or "spotlight" tag.

As a means of measuring the efficacy of the online advertising and marketing campaigns that the Site employs, we may also allow third-party advertising companies to use a single-pixel image file on the Site to collect information about your visit. This information is anonymous in nature. It only identifies actions being performed on our website. It does not tie actions back to any individual user of our website. No personally identifiable information is collected during this process.

Certain Site marketing and confirmation e-mails may also contain a single-pixel image file to detect when and whether you've opened the e-mail. Site may also track clicks from e-mail communications using an internal or third-party tracking system. Site uses this personal information to continually assess and improve the products and services we offer. The Site also uses this information to inform you of products and services, sales and special offers that might benefit you.

These tracking mechanisms are used to ensure that the Site and e-mails continue to provide relevant content that is interesting and useful to our customers.

Log File Analysis

The Site also collects information from your computer each time you visit our site using javascript and log file analysis software.

Information we measure, analyze and collect in this manner may include: your IP address, screen resolution, operating system, platform information, your URL clickstream behavior (from referring URL website, through the Site, to and including URL of exiting website), date and time of your clickstream behavior, purchase behavior, clickstream patterns, e-mail address, Site user answer, cookie information, session information (includes: page interaction information, browser interaction information, page response times, length of visits to individual pages, download errors) and web browser software.

Though some personally identifiable information may be collected in this process, the information collected is not used to track an individual's use through our website.

Transmission of Information

Any material, information or idea you transmit to or post on Site by any means will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary, and may be disseminated or used by the LVCVA, UNLV and their affiliates and providers for any purpose whatsoever, including, but not limited to, developing, manufacturing and marketing products. Notwithstanding the foregoing, all personal data provided to the LVCVA and/or UNLV online will be handled in accordance with the LVCVA Online Privacy Practices. You are prohibited from posting or transmitting to or from this Web site any unlawful, threatening, libelous, defamatory, obscene, scandalous, inflammatory, pornographic, or profane material, or any other material that could give rise to any civil or criminal liability under the law.
