How We Share Information Collected
We may disclose personal information that you provide to us to the following categories of recipients:
- To our contractors, business partners and service providers we use to support our business or who provide services on our behalf. For clarity, BIF does not share Event attendee data with business partners or sponsors unless you opt in to such sharing via an Event registration form, or you attend an Event hosted by BIF and allow our business partners or sponsors to scan your attendee badge. If you do not wish for your information to be shared with our business partners or sponsors, you may choose not to opt in via the event registration forms and elect not to have your badge scanned by a partner at an Event. If you choose to share your information with business partners or sponsors, your information will be subject to the respective business partner or sponsor’s privacy statement.
- To a potential buyer (and its agents and advisors) in connection with any proposed merger, acquisition, or any form of sale or transfer of some or all of our assets (including in the event of a reorganization, dissolution or liquidation), in which case personal information held by us about you will be among the assets transferred to the buyer or acquirer.
- To any other person with your consent to the disclosure.
We do not sell, rent or trade information collected through the Website with third parties for their promotional purposes.
Security and Confidentiality
BIF maintains appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect the personal information obtained through the Website and/or Events from accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure and access. BIF personnel and service providers with access to personal information collected through our Websites or from Event attendees are required to keep such information confidential and secure.
We will retain your personal information if we have a business need to do so or for as long as is needed to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Statement, unless a longer retention period is required by law (for example, to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements).
When there is no longer a legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete it, anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
Your Privacy Rights
We provide you with certain choices regarding the information you provide to us. In particular:
- If you wish to access, correct, update, or request deletion of your personal information, you can send us an e‑mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Event registrants and attendees may update their user profiles for Events we host by logging into the applicable event website or registration page.

We will respond to such requests in accordance with the requirements of applicable data protection laws. Please note that in order to fulfil your request, we may need you to provide certain information to verify your identity.
Do Not Track
While BIF attempts to honor do not track (“DNT”) instructions we receive from a Visitor’s browser, we cannot guarantee that BIF will always respond to such signals, in part, because of the lack of common industry standard for DNT technology. We continue to monitor developments in DNT technology and stay apprised of DNT industry standards as they evolve.
