Your privacy is important to you, and you are important to us. Here's how we take care of your information.
Why do we need this? Because there some people just don't want others to have nice things.
All of your data is private to us. MaricopaCon (the staff, volunteers, and the organization itself) will never share or sell your personally identifiable information (PII), anonymized or not, with any third-party without your explicit direction or legal order. Unlike others, this is not a "consent" clause, you must tell us directly that we may share your information with a third-party of your choosing. The only time where we are bound to do otherwise is with a federal or state court order, and even then, we will be leery about the action, and lawyers will be involved to defend your information.
There has never been a request for PII information for any attendee.

Advocating or encouraging any of the above is also considered harassment.
