We will never sell, release, or transmit customer information externally for any purpose, other than with approved business partners, in secure circumstances, and only then for the benefit of creating successful meeting experiences for our clients. All internal information is gathered and retained only for the duration of retained services, except as defined by regulatory requirements, and then based upon the regulatory retention period, and/or client request for data archival.

Website Access:

Scarritt Group provides a series of websites designed to provide clients with information and services, including, but not limited to, Available Service Menus, Request for Information or Proposal, Conference Registration, Travel Arrangements, Virtual Conference Center Access, Informational Portals, and Learning Management Systems. We respect the privacy of your Personal Information (any information related to an identified or identifiable individual), and only collect volunteered information, and then only in relation to the provided service to the client.

The Privacy Statement describes how we collect, use, protect, and disclose the Personal Information that you share with us online and offline, unless otherwise provided pursuant to an informed consent signed by you. Scarritt websites that display this Privacy Statement are committed to only collecting, maintaining, and securing your Personal Information in accordance with the terms of this statement. We encourage you to read this Privacy Statement in its entirety before submitting any information. By using any Scarritt website or portal, submitting or requesting information, you acknowledge that you understand and agree with the provisions of this Privacy Statement.

Use of Cookies and Other Tags:

Where permitted by law, non-Personal Information and data may be automatically collected through the standard operation of Scarritt’s Internet service or through the use of “cookies” or “internet tags” and other similar techniques. This type of anonymous information allows Scarritt to evaluate customer interest in its websites and perform other market research activities. Cookies are small text files a website can use to recognize repeated usage, facilitate the user’s access to and use of the site, and allow a site to track usage behavior and compile aggregate data that will allow content improvement and targeted advertising. Cookies are programs that come into a user’s system but do not damage files. Generally cookies work by assigning a unique number to the user that has no meaning outside the assigning site. If a user does not want information to be collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows the user to deny or accept the cookie feature; however, users should note that cookies may be necessary to provide the user with certain features (e.g., customized delivery of information) available on Scarritt’s websites. Scarritt also may collect and store the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet; the Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using; the browser software you use and your operating system; the date and time you access our website; the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our website.

Do-Not-Track Signals:

Some web browsers that you use may transmit “do-not-track” signals to websites with which the browser communicates. As of the Effective Date of this Privacy Statement, an industry standard on how to respond to these signals has not yet been established. Since industry standards are still evolving, Scarritt will not separately respond to or take any action with respect to “do-not-track” configurations in your internet browser. Scarritt will reassess its approach based upon future procedures, but will respond with similar guidelines, based upon only gathering information based upon providing services to existing clients.
