This privacy statement explains data collection and use in those situations. This privacy statement applies to all web pages and applications offered directly by the CIRCLE BACK TO SEATTLE.
Collection of your Personal Information
We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you or allows us to contact you. Generally, this information is requested when you are creating or updating your personal profile, and when signing up for an event.
For example: If you choose to register for an CIRCLE BACK TO SEATTLE convention or other event, we will ask you for your profile information, and in addition details of optional tours, meals, and other items relevant to the event.

We use your personal information for the following purposes:
- To deliver services and information that you request or purchase.

- To allow you access to limited-entry areas of our site as appropriate.
- To investigate and pursue claims of abuse of our service or against our members.
We may occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including packaging, mailing and delivery, answering questions about CIRCLE BACK TO SEATTLE events, sending postal mail and processing event registration. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
