Option to share contact information with the event organizer

You may be asked to share your contact information with the Host when you register for certain OnZoom events. OnZoom Hosts will receive your contact information from OnZoom as soon as you agree to share your information with them. It’s important to know that once the Host receives your information, such information may be used in accordance with the Host’s own, separate privacy policy. For example, the Host may directly send your information about the event, future events, and other marketing communications, or share your information with other parties. You should carefully review the applicable policies of the Host. Host policies may be available on the Host’s event listing or profile page or may be requested by contacting the Host.

If you do not wish to share your contact information with the Host, please uncheck the I agree that OnZoom may share my contact information with the event organizer box. If you have questions about how your information will be used, we encourage you to contact the Host through our contact host services to obtain and review their privacy policy.   

You can learn more about OnZoom’s privacy practices by visiting our privacy statement.
