In order to facilitate further cooperation between an Attendee and Event organizers and sponsors, TechChill provides limited Attendee information (such as name, surname, occupation, company name and contact information) to Event organizers and sponsors. This information is only used to communicate with Attendees about subjects they have expressed interest in and possible future ventures. This may include cooperation offers, special offers and newsletters.

 

You can opt out of receiving communication from Event organizers and sponsors any time by info@techchill.co. However, this means that you will not receive further information/ invitations to other events that could be of interest to you.
