Cookies

Where a site is password protected it will use Cookies. Cookies are nothing more than a simple text file. They are not executable programs, and consequently it is impossible for a cookie to contain a virus, or any other application. Cookies are also very small, and you run no risk of filling your hard drive with too many cookies.

The O-Seasons Events cookie that is placed on your computer as a result of you registering on one of our sites contains only your unique reference number that is allocated by the registration process. This consists of a four digit number. There is no information in the Cookie that can identify you. The Cookie is only valid when you access the relevant O-Seasons Events site.

Email Addresses

This site recognises the home servers of visitors, but not their email addresses. Individually identifiable email addresses are not captured or stored unless they are provided. Persons who communicate with Pivot Conferences, and supply us with an email address, may receive future communications by email or telephone. Persons who do not wish to receive email messages may contact O-Seasons Events and ask to be removed; to do so, send an email to inquiry@pivotconferences.co.za and specify your name, company name and email address. As such, O-Seasons Events supports the customer's right to "opt-out". Persons who request information about Pivot Conferences, and who supply us with their name and address will be added to our database to receive the requested information.
