Information Collected
We collect non-personally identifiable information about you in a number of ways, including tracking your activities through your IP address, computer settings or most-recently visited URL. We may also ask you to provide certain non-personally identifiable information about yourself, such as your title, annual revenues, your profession, buying preferences, etc. We do not routinely collect personally identifiable information about you unless you voluntarily submit such information to the DIGIBC.ORG® website by, for example, filling out a survey or registration form. The types of information that may be requested include your name, address, company website, e-mail address, and telephone number.

Use of Information
DigiBC may use the information to tell you about DIGIBC.ORG® events, products or services or other industry-related events, products and services that we feel may interest you. Personally identifiable information may be used to contact you again either by online electronic communication (such as e-mail), mobile communications (text as SMS), or by regular mail or telephone.

DigiBC offers on-line registration for the Vancouver Interactive Digital Week and other events at third party e-commerce websites. We may use the information you provide on our on-line registration forms to tell you about future events by DigiBC and/or its affiliates that we feel may be of interest to you.
