Miadria Group companies (“Miadria,” “we,” or “us”) are committed to protecting your information.

This Policy applies to Miadria and any entities doing business under this name, which collect, process and/or store information.

This Privacy Policy explains how we collect and use information that you provide via our websites and apps or when you register for our services or our events. Please review this Policy before you give us any information. By using our websites or apps or registering for our services and events, you consent to the collection and use of your information as described in this Policy.

If you have any questions about our privacy practices or questions, requests or concerns regarding your information, please contact us via email at the following email dpo@miadria.com.

We collect information from various sources as follows:

  • When you provide information to us when establishing or maintaining an account or otherwise receiving a service from us.
  • When you provide information to us when registering to attend or while attending a Miadria event.
  • Some exhibitor sessions and keynote presentations are recorded
  • We may use automated means (such as cookies) to collect data from your devices.
  • We receive referrals from users and others.
  • We collect or receive data from third parties, including, in some cases, publicly available directories, as part of our marketing and prospecting activities.

From the sources listed above, we collect only the information you made available at that point in time.

We and third parties use various technologies to collect information about your activities on the Miadria websites and apps.

Miadria web site uses cookies (definition: An HTTP cookie is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored on the user’s computer by the user’s web browser while the user is browsing. Cookies were designed to be a reliable mechanism for websites to remember stateful information or to record the user’s browsing activity) to help you personalize your online experience. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Miadria pages, or register with Miadria site or services, a cookie helps Miadria to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Miadria Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Miadria features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Miadria services or Web sites you visit.
