DISCOVERYMICE collects and uses your personal information to operate and improve its website, communications and registration services. These uses include providing you with more effective service; making the website or services easier to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the same information; performing research and analysis aimed at improving our services and technologies; and displaying content and advertising that are customized to your interests and preferences.

We also use your personal information to communicate with you. We may send certain mandatory service communications such as welcome letters, notices, reminders, information on technical service issues, and security announcements. Some DISCOVERYMICE services may include sending periodic notification letters and newsletters on behalf of our partners or principals that are considered part of the service. Additionally, with your permission, we may also occasionally send you product surveys or promotional mailings to inform you of other products or services available from DISCOVERYMICE and its affiliates, and/or share your personal information with DISCOVERYMICE partners or principals so they may send you information about their products and services. You can opt-out from receiving newsletters or promotional e-mail anytime by following the steps as described in the respective newsletter or promotional e-mail.

Personal information collected on DISCOVERYMICE sites and services may be stored and processed in Malaysia or any other country in which DISCOVERYMICE or its affiliates, subsidiaries or service providers maintain facilities.

Your name, designation, organisation and contact details as provided in the registration forms for the World Tourism Conference 2013 will be used for inscription in the Conference List of Delegates and will be published.

Sharing of Your Personal Information

Except as described in this statement, we will not disclose your personal information outside of DISCOVERYMICE and its controlled subsidiaries and affiliates without your consent. Some DISCOVERYMICE web pages allow you to choose to share your personal information with select DISCOVERYMICE partners so that they can contact you about their products, services or offers. Other sites may give you a separate choice as to whether you wish to receive communications from DISCOVERYMICE about a partner's particular offering (without transferring your personal information to the third party).

All information captured on registration, requisition and survey forms for the World Tourism Conference 2013 will be shared with the Ministry of Tourism, Malaysia and the World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO). Profiles and photos submitted will be used

Some DISCOVERYMICE services are co-branded by DISCOVERYMICE and another principal or partner. If so, both DISCOVERYMICE and the principal or partner will receive information you provide such as on registration, requisition or survey forms.

DISCOVERYMICE occasionally hires other companies (vendor) to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, hosting websites, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. Those service providers will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose than for delivering the service to DISCOVERYMICE in accordance with DISCOVERYMICE’s instructions and policies.

We may access or disclose information about you, including the content of your communications, in order to: (a) comply with the law or respond to lawful requests or legal process; (b) protect the rights or property of DISCOVERYMICE or our customers, including the enforcement of our agreements or policies governing your use of the services; or (c) act on a good faith belief that such access or disclosure is necessary to protect the personal safety of DISCOVERYMICE employees, customers or the public.
