Privacy Policy

Last updated: May 13, 2023.

The Next Summit (“us”, “we”, or “our”) operates the www.thenextsummit.org website (the “Service”). This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information when you use our Service.

By using the Service, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.

Information Collection and Use

We collect personal information, such as your first and last name, email address, IP address, and location data when you fill out forms on our website, like registering for a webinar or subscribing to our newsletter. Additionally, we use a Facebook pixel and similar Twitter and LinkedIn website trackers to collect information about members of those social networks who visit our site.

We also collect non-personal information, including browser types, operating systems, device types, general locations (city, state, and nation), pages visited, time spent on each page, conversions, and language used. This data is not tied to your personal identity.

We use user-completed web forms, cookies, and Google Analytics to collect and track website user data.

We use your data to conduct analytics and improve the user experience by providing more personalized content, improving your experience, and sharing webinars and other resources relevant to your needs.

Data Storage and Security

All data is stored by trusted partners: Google and Siteground. These companies follow security and storage best practices. For example, Siteground uses the latest PHP 7 version and software patches, employs sophisticated IDS/IPS systems to block malicious bots and attackers, constantly monitors for vulnerabilities, and ensures that users’ data is accessed only by trusted personnel on request, following strict policies and keeping detailed records for such access.

Data Sharing and Disclosure

We share your data with several third parties for storage and analytics purposes, including Zoho, Google, and Siteground. We do not share your information unnecessarily without your permission unless we are legally required to do so – in which case we will notify you of what we have shared and the law or statute we are complying with.

Third-Party Links and Services

Our website contains links to third-party websites and integrations. Please note that our Privacy Policy does not apply to these external sites or services, and we are not responsible for their privacy practices. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of these external sites and services.

Children’s Privacy

Our Service is not intended for use by children under 16 without adult supervision. We are committed to complying with all applicable laws and regulations regarding children’s privacy.

User Rights and Choices

You have the right to access, update, delete, or object to the processing or use of your data in specific ways at any time. You can unsubscribe from marketing emails or newsletters by using the link provided at the bottom of all emails or by contacting us at alexderr@thenextsummit.org.

Privacy Policy Updates

We may update our Privacy Policy from time to time. All updates will be posted on this page. Newsletter subscribers will be notified of any changes via email, and a notification will be displayed for 7 days using a modal window on our website.
