We know that your privacy on the Internet is very important to you. That’s why protecting your personal information online is of the utmost importance to Texas EMS Conference. As a result, we have prepared this Privacy and Security Policy to let you know how we will and will not use the information you entrust to us through texasemsconference.com.
Statement of Purpose
This policy describes the privacy practices regarding information collected from visitors to texasemsconference.com. It contains information about what data is collected and how it is used. The Texas EMS Conference Privacy and Security Policy applies only to the Texas EMS Conference site. This policy does not apply whenever visitors leave the Texas EMS Conference domains and follow a link to another site. If the address in the browser does not indicate one of the Texas EMS Conference domains, you are no longer on the Texas EMS Conference site. The privacy and security policy of the site owner of each site visited should be reviewed to determine how each site owner addresses personally identifiable information. This policy may be updated periodically.
Collection of Information
For online registrations made on texasemsconference.com, individuals will be asked to provide certain information about themselves and/or the organization with which they are affiliated. The type of information requested will vary based upon the type of transaction. Texas EMS Conference will collect the same information as would be collected if the transaction was performed in person, over the telephone, or through the mail. Additional information may be requested if such information is necessary to verify an individual’s identity and secure the transaction.
For all other browsing, visitors are not asked for personally identifiable information, and none will be collected. The server logs and persistent cookies of Texas EMS Conference collect information about the number and types of visitors to Texas EMS Conference and how they use the website. This information includes the type of browser, operating system, and the Internet Protocol (“IP”) address used by each visitor and similar information about the computer network used. It also includes information verifying when and how pages of the website were accessed. However, no attempt is made to match this information with the identity of the visitor, except as is required to comply with a law enforcement investigation.
Use of Information
Information collected in the course of the transaction is used for the following purposes: to conduct online registration of individuals and entities for Texas EMS Conference; to send an email to the individual using the online service confirming the registration; to track participation in conference sessions for earning continuing education credit; to track engagement with conference exhibitors; or to provide information about Texas EMS Conference.
Personally identifiable information contained in a question or comment sent to Texas EMS Conference in an email message or submitted in an online form is only used by Texas EMS Conference to respond to the question or comment. Texas EMS Conference may redirect the message to the Texas Department of State Health Services for response if Texas EMS Conference staff believes that the Department may be in a better position to answer the question than the staff of Texas EMS Conference.
Name and address data and email addresses of conference attendees and exhibitors may be made available to Texas EMS Conference exhibitors and other interested parties.
Registering on texasemsconference.com is safe. When you register on texasemsconference.com, all of your registration information, including your card number and address, is passed through our server. Our secure server uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), which encrypts your order information and transmits it to us. SSL technology, the industry-leading standard, is designed to prevent someone other than texasemsconference.com from viewing and downloading your information. At a minimum, the following information will be protected when transmitted to Texas EMS Conference: All credit, debit, and charge card numbers; bank account and electronic check information; transaction payment information; and email addresses.
A web browser will automatically activate the appropriate security features when initiating a transaction on Texas EMS Conference. On most browsers, an unbroken key or locked padlock graphic at the bottom of the browser screen indicates that a secure connection is established.
Since any registration information you provide to texasemsconference.com will be transmitted using a secure connection, if your Web browser cannot support this level of security, you will not be able to register through texasemsconference.com. The most recent versions of Google Chrome®, Mozilla Firefox®, and Microsoft Edge® can support a secure connection and can be downloaded for free from the Google, Mozilla and Microsoft Web sites respectively.
Although no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, we will do our best to ensure the security of your information on our systems. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, Texas EMS Conference cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to texasemsconference.com.

We use GA to track aggregated website behavior, such as what pages you looked at, for how long, and so on.
