This web page describes how we use your personal and conference data.
1. Use of Personal Information by Conference Organizers
We collect data that is normally required by conference organizers. This includes your name, email address, address for correspondence, Web page, country, affiliation, and phone number.
2. Cross-Conference Data
When you submit a paper, we will not pass on information about whether this or a similar paper has been submitted previously or in parallel. We will never pass on any information about reviewing in one conference to organizers of another conference. Meanwhile, we cannot prevent other organizers from passing on information.
3. Use of Personal Information by ConfManage
We do not sell, distribute, or pass on your personal data to any organization.
We do not access data of any conference that uses ConfManage. Our policy is that the only persons who have access to this data are those persons who have access to it as a consequence of their use of ConfManage. For example, if we store a review on a submission for a conference, only the following people will have access to this review:
the reviewer who wrote the review;
the chairs of the conference;
the program committee member who is handling the review;
all program committee members to which the chairs give access to the review;
the authors of the submission if the chairs decide to send the review to the authors, and only after the review has been sent to the authors.
The following information is collected by or on behalf of ConfManage and is necessary for providing our services:
Account data: we collect information when you create or update your ConfManage account. This include your name, email, organization, country, login name and password (which is stored encrypted). You can also optionally provide your address and phone number.
