Privacy Policy

You privacy is the most important to us. Our web sites and business operations may collect information related to you. These terms will explain and give you an idea how this may happen, what we will be doing with any potentially private data and how you can get in contact us if there are any issues or concerns.

Personally Identifiable Information:

Personal identifiable information is the information that allows one to be identified as a particular person. This could be your name, address or phone number.

When you register for an event, newsletter or a webcast, we collect certain types of personal information after this.  This includes:

  • your name
  • your title
  • your address
  • your phone number
  • your fax number
  • your email address
  • your credit card number or other payment method

Such information which is collected by us will not be given or sold to third parties unless we have been given permission by you. We cannot share it to anyone else without your consent.

Cookies & Web Beacons:

Search Engine Times, its advertisers or analytics partners may send a cookie to your computer or use web beacons to gather certain statistical information.

A cookie isn’t something that personally identifies you. It is just a way to know about a particular web browser which was used to visit our sites.

A web beacon too doesn’t personally identify you. It automatically sends information about pages and the content used to an analysis tool for further research.

Cookies and web beacons help in understanding whether a particular web browser is spending much time on our sites, visiting it several times per month and other different types of analysis.

If you never give us any personally identifiable information, then your visits – despite us using the cookies or web beacons – are actually anonymous. We neither know nor have an idea about the actual person linked with the cookie.

It’s exactly similar to having a library card but never having to let reveal your name, address or phone number to the check out books.

If in case, you personally provide us with your identifiable information, then maybe we could link that with your cookie, gather the visits with web beacons and understand how you have personally reacted towards our website.

Advertisers can also use these cookies and web beacons to figure out how many times you’ve seen an advertisement. Any information that you have shared is not given to them for cookie or web beacon use. Thus, they cannot personally identify you with that information given on our web site.

Browsers can be set in a manner that they can accept or reject cookies or notify you if a cookie is being sent. One can use the Privacy software to override web beacons. Going for any of these actions shouldn’t cause a problem with our sites. If you still face any issues, please let us know.

The Use of Personally Identifiable Data:

Personally identifiable information you provide can be used in the following manner:

  • You could be sent something you’ve requested for, like an email newsletter etc.
  • Any information from Search Engine Times that you might be interested in.
  • You could be sent information from advertisers.
  • It could also be Target advertising based on your interests, in case you’ve provided those.

Sharing of Information:

Your personally identifiable information will only be shared with other companies under following circumstances:

  • If in case we have asked for and you have given the consent to share the info with sponsors, business partners, advertisers and exhibitors for a certain service.
  • For situations where, we might need to provide it to other companies to deliver the services you require from us like having an email list sent out or maybe process your event order etc. This is only for specific cases where you wanted a certain service from us.

We may also aggregate information and disclose it to the advertisers and other third parties for the purpose of marketing, promotional, and other requirements. In these cases, no personally identifiable information is disclosed anyhow.

The concept of Transfer:

We could buy or sell a property or a company. So, in case, we sell a business, we could transfer some or all of your information as a part of the sale so that there is no hindrance and you continue to receive the service that was provided to you or for other business purposes.

Changes in Policy:

Any changes in the policy will be posted on this page. For any questions or doubts regarding the policy, you can send us a mail at
