Last Modified: August 23, 2010

This Privacy Policy discloses the privacy practices for AttyEvents.

Legally Binding Contract: Please read this privacy policy carefully. Your use of this website constitutes your agreement to the terms contained herein. If you do not agree to these terms, you must immediately stop using our service and accessing our website.

Modifications to the Privacy Policy: AttyEvents reserves the right at our sole discretion to change, modify, add, or delete portions of the Privacy Policy and/or Terms of Use at any time. When our Privacy Policy is changed, we note the date of the last modification at the top of the page and the nature of the modification. Such changes shall become effective immediately upon posting. If you use our service or our website after any such changes to the Privacy Policy are posted, it means you have accepted all changes to the Privacy Policy.

Types of Information We Collect
AttyEvents collects two types of information about our Users: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.

(1) Personally Identifiable Information (PII): PII is information that you voluntarily provide by creating an account, placing an order or engaging in some other voluntary activity on our website. This would include, but not be limited to, uploading your name, email address, city, credit card information, password, forum comments and feedback. We use your PII to provide products and services to you, enhance the operation of our website, analyze our website use, engage in marketing, resolve disputes, contact you, enforce our agreements with you , comply with applicable law and cooperate with law enforcement activities.

(2) Non-Personally Identifiable Information (NPII): NPII is information that does not identify a specific user. This type of information may include the URL of the website you visited before our website, the URL of the website you visit after our website, the type of browser you are using and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. We and our authorized Third Party Service Providers may automatically collect this information when you visit our website through the use of Cookies, pixel tags and other similar features. We use NPII to analyze our website traffic, administer our website, analyze trends, gather demographic information, comply with applicable law, and cooperate with law enforcement activities. We may also share this information with our authorized Third Party Service Providers and Advertisers to measure the overall effectiveness of our online advertising, content, and programming.

Release of Personally Identifiable Information
We will never sell or rent your PII to third parties. We will not share your PII with other parties except as provided below.

(1) When You Make a Purchase: When you purchase a ticket on AttyEvents, we send your information to the event organizer so that they can communicate directly with you.

(2) We may share your information with Authorized Third Party Service Providers: We may use third party service providers to provide additional services to our users. For example, we may hire a third party service provider to distribute our newsletter, provide marketing assistance, process credit card payments, trouble shoot problems and provide customer service. The use of your PII by such parties is governed by the privacy policies of such parties and is not subject to our control. We are therefore not liable for actions taken by any third party service provider with respect to PII.

(3) We may share your information in a Business Transfer: In the event of a merger or acquisition, your PII would be transferred along with the other assets of our business. If this occurs, the successor company would acquire your PII. Your PII would remain subject to this Privacy Policy.

(4) We may share your information for our Protection and the Protection of Others: We may also disclose your PII when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law or a court order; enforce or apply this Privacy Policy, our Website Terms of Use or other agreements; or protect the rights, property or safety of the Website, its Users or others.

Release of Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We may share NPII with third parties. For example, we may share aggregated demographic information (which does not include any Personally Identifiable Information) with advertisers.

We also use Third Party Service Providers to track and analyze website usage to administer our website. We may publish this information for promotional purposes. Note that none of this information is Personally Identifiable Information, only summaries of the activities of our Users as a whole. Such data is collected on our behalf, and is owned and used by us.

Receipt of Emails
Your receipt of emails from us is voluntary. You can subscribe to deal alerts and we will email you the details of any new deal in your geographic area. You can unsubscribe at any time by sending us an email at info@groupesq.com. When you make a purchase you will automatically receive emails from us with respect to the status of your purchase. You cannot unsubscribe from these emails. Once your purchase is over, these emails cease.

Security of Information
(1) Credit Card Information: Your credit card number is transmitted by Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology (http://www.thawte.com) to ensure that it is safe during transmission. While a deal is pending, your credit card information is stored on our server using a 128 bit encryption algorithm. Your credit card information is not stored on our server after your deal closes.

AttyEvents is a PayPal verified site and all credit card transactions are handle by PayPal. (http://www.paypal.com)

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we employ commercially reasonable security measures to protect data and seek to partner with companies which do the same, we cannot guarantee the security of any information transmitted to or from the Website, and are not responsible for the actions of any third parties that may receive any such information.

(2) Your Personally Identifiable Information: You access your account via your email address and your password. Your password is encrypted using a 128 bit algorithm.

Other Tracking Devices: We may use other industry standard technologies like pixel tags and web beacons to track your use of our website and emails or we may allow our Third Party Service Providers to use these devices on our behalf. Pixel tags and web beacons are tiny graphic images placed on certain pages on our website, or in our emails that allow us to determine whether you have performed a specific action. These tracking devices allow us to measure and improve our understanding of visitor traffic and behavior on our website, as well as give us a way to measure our performance.
