For example, we may ask for your contact information when you ask for information about a conference or event we are organising, when you ask to be included in an email mailing list, or if you register with us to attend a conference or event. We collect and store the information you provide in a secure database.

Like many websites, the Conference Connections website may use "cookie" technology. When you first connect to our site, the cookie identifies your browser with a unique, random number. Cookies help us understand which parts of our websites are the most popular, where our visitors are going and how long they spend there. We use cookies to study traffic patterns on our site so we can make the site even better.

About Cookies
Cookies were originally designed to help a website distinguish a user's browser as a previous visitor and thus save and remember any preferences that may have been set while the user was browsing the site. A cookie is a small string of text that a website can send to your browser. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive, pass on computer viruses, or capture your email address. Currently, websites use cookies to enhance the user's visit; in general, cookies can securely store a user's ID and password, personalise home pages, identify which parts of a site have been visited, or keep track of selections in a "shopping cart."
