Because we are users too, it goes without saying that Quest takes the protection of your member data seriously. If you read no further, know this: Quest does not sell or distribute your member data. If you want to know more, read on.
QUEST INTERNATIONAL USERS GROUP
Quest intends to give you as much control as possible over your personal information on the web. You can visit QuestDirect.org, the Quest Web site, without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. However, to take advantage of all the tools and services QuestDirect offers, we need information from you, such as your name, company name and contact information.
If you choose to give us personal information via the Internet, please be aware that we retain and use this information for Quest’s marketing, statistical and analytical purposes. We do not, however, sell or distribute this information to other companies. We track the domains from which people visit us, but do not sell any contact data, web traffic data or web traffic analysis.
The QuestDirect Web site may contain links to other Web sites, including those of other user groups. Quest is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites.
Exhibitors may be provided with mailing addresses and email of conference registrants before and after Quest International Users Group conferences. This list contains mailing and email information only -- no phone numbers or fax numbers. This is to allow exhibitors to mail materials publicizing their booths and the products, services and other offers that will take place at their booths, both before and after the conference.
Many exhibitors collect business cards or scan attendee badges at their booths during conferences. If you offer your business card or conference badge to an exhibitor at a booth, Quest views this as voluntarily providing information to the vendor. This is how many vendors build their marketing lists. If you receive materials following a conference via email or receive a phone call, please be assured this information did NOT come from Quest, but possibly did come from the information you provided to an exhibitor during the conference.
Quest may allow vendors in certain sponsorship categories to do a limited number of mailings to our members to inform you of their products and services. These mailings are "blind" drop mailings distributed through a bonded, third-party mail house. The vendor is not provided with your data.
Among the most valuable benefits of Quest membership is the ability to connect with a peer, such as another person or company using the same application or facing the same implementation. For that reason Quest maintains profile information and has a searchable, online directory of members. This tool is accessible to user and vendor members only. Vendor members of Quest do now have access to this tool, but are only permitted to connect with you through your approval.
