  • Privacy

    • Where can I find your privacy statement?

      You can read through our privacy statement here

    • What are you going to do with my email address after I buy a ticket?

      Your name and email address is stored in Earlybird (our ticketing and registration platform) and Mailchimp. We’ll use it to inform you about updates regarding the conference, as well as provide you relevant information regarding future events. Every email you receive about events aside from the one you are attending includes an unsubscribe button. Simply hit that if you’d no longer like to hear about future events.

    • What happens to my personal details after the event?

      Aside from your name and email address, which are covered in the previous question, any other personal details are stored within the database for the specific event that you have attended – and only in that database. We keep a record of our attendees like any company keeps a record of customers. It’s necessary if we ever need to provide you a refund, or make declarations to the tax authorities.

    • I signed up for a workshop that's hosted by one of your partners, do they now have my details? Are they going to start spamming me?

      No. We will only pass your details to the host of a workshop if you consent to us doing so. When you sign up for a workshop, we ask you for consent to pass your name and email address to the host for follow-up communication and marketing purposes. If you don’t consent, we won’t pass them your information.

    • Will my details be passed to third parties without my consent?

      No. We will never pass your personal information to third parties without your consent.

    • But what about side events hosted by third parties?

      Still no. Third-party side events which use our registration system to run their event may require your personal information in order for them to manage your participation effectively. We will always inform you if this is the case before you sign up.

    • Can other attendees see my information?

      Only if you’ve agreed to make your information visible to them. For example, in our conference app and in the Earlybird dashboard, you will be invited to opt-in for networking services. If you choose to opt in, attendees will be able to see your personal information such as LinkedIn URL, name, job title and company.

    • What happens when someone scans my badge?

      When someone scans your badge, you’re added to their leads list in the conference app. Here they can see the same information that you’ve chosen to make available when onboarding. 48 hours after the conference, we’ll provide them with your name, job title and email address.

    • What happens if someone scans my badge without asking me first?

      If someone scans your badge without your consent, don’t panic. Email us at privacy@thenextweb.com with as much information about the situation as you can. We’ll help you ensure this data isn’t passed to the person in question.

    • Where can I find my scanned leads?

      You can download a csv export of your scanned leads from your ticket dashboard. Simply log in by navigating back to your ticket confirmation email to access this. 

    • Why do you need my LinkedIn details?

      We gather your LinkedIn information in order to populate your profile on the app and in our Earlybird dashboard networking services. Associating your profile with your LinkedIn account promotes trust amongst your fellow attendees, but this is completely optional.

    • How do I opt-out of receiving communications?

      If you would like to opt out of marketing emails, you’re able to do this from the privacy tab in your attendee dashboard. Simply log in by navigating back to your ticket confirmation email to access this.

    • How can I change my preferences about what I receive from TNW Conference?

      You can change your preferences for what communication you receive from us from the privacy tab in your attendee dashboard. Navigate back to your ticket confirmation email to access this.
