your continued use of the Site after such time will signify your acceptance of the new terms.
INFORMATION WE GATHER
If you register with the Site, we collect and store Personal Information that specifically identifies you or the
account you set up with EventWire (your "Account"). At this time, the most information you would be required to
submit is your first name, last name, User ID, password, preferred currency, street address, city, state, zip/postal
code, country, phone number, email address and valid financial account (ie. credit card) information. Other
information requested on our Registration page is optional. We may, in the future, include other optional requests
for information from you to help us tailor the Site for you and deliver personalized information to you. We may
supplement Personal Information you provide us with additional information purchased from third parties for
marketing purposes. In addition, if you add a vendor to your planning tools, or provide a review of a new vendor, we
will automatically add that vendor's information to our catalog (without any link back to you).
Use of portions of the Site requires you to establish a User ID and password. You agree that you will be responsible
for maintaining your password as confidential and for any activity that occurs on your Account as a result of you
sharing your password with another or failing to protect it. EventWire is not responsible for any loss or damage
arising from your failure to maintain the confidentiality of your password.
Online Surveys and Contests
Occasionally, EventWire may conduct User surveys to collect information about our Users' preferences. These surveys
are optional, and if you choose to respond, your responses will be kept anonymous. These surveys may be conducted by
and processed through third parties. Similarly, we may offer contests to qualifying Users in which we ask for
contact and demographic information such as name, email address and mailing address. Except with respect to any
survey partners, none of the survey results are shared with third parties in a personally identifiable form. The
demographic information that EventWire collects in the registration process and through surveys may be used to help
us improve our Services and Site to meet the needs and preferences of our Users. This may include targeting
advertising to you about our Services and Site. Information we gather through a contest may also be disclosed to
third parties as necessary for prize fulfillment and other aspects of any c ontest or similar offering.
Automatically Gathered Information
EventWire automatically collects browser type and browser software version to tailor the presentation of the Site
and the Services to the User's platform and to maintain a record of the User's activity on the Site. EventWire uses
cookies to enable Users to specify unique preferences and to track User trends and patterns. Users always have the
option of disabling cookies via their browser preferences. If you disable cookies on your browser, please note that
some parts of our Site may not function as effectively or may be considerably slower. As an automatic process, our
Web server software records a log file of IP addresses that access the Site. We also collect IP address information
but do not ordinarily link IP addresses to Users' Personal Information. However, we can and will use IP addresses to
identify a User when we, in our sole discretion, determine that it is necessary to enforce compliance with
Email to Friends Feature and Referral Program
EventWire lets you easily connect your Profiles to friends/affiliates via email. EventWire also offers the ability

As part of registration, you may set up a Profile describing yourself ("MyProfile") or your business ("Storefront").
This profile will be publicly available as a default. You will have the ability to hide Personal Information under
your Profile Settings. Once you choose to hide your profile, it may take some time for the search engines (eg,
Google, Yahoo, MSN, etc) to cycle out their cached search results which may temporarily contain your Personal
Information. EventWire does not have direct control over the timeliness of this process. EventWire will not have any
provide to other Users via the Site.

The EventWire Reviews System
The EventWire Vendor Review system represents a central repository for ratings and reviews of Vendors by their
customers. When you submit a review or a counter-review on the EventWire Site, your EventWire Profile information
will be made available as part of the review posting. If you provide a review for a vendor that is not yet part of
our catalog, or if you add a new vendor to your planning tools, we will use the information that you provide about
the vendor to notify the vendor that a review has been completed and that we are adding the vendor to our catalog.
We will also seek that vendor's greater involvement with our Site. Your Personal Information will NOT be made
available or public as part of the Vendor Review Program as you have the option to hide your profile under a unique
EventWire Vendor Catalog
The EventWire Catalog provides a listing by sortable category/fields of participating EventWire Vendors as well as a
listing of local businesses. If a EventWire Vendor is registered, the vendor's Storefront will be made available on
the Catalog unless the vendor chooses to unregister from the Site.
We may send you email communications including information that we think may be of interest to you. You may opt out
of receiving these email communications either when you register to become a Member or via the Preferences section

required to provide a specific product or service that you request from a co-branded page or co-branded site.
However, these third-party partners may not use this Personal Information for any reason other than to provide the

To the extent necessary to provide you with the Services on the Site, we may provide your Personal Information to
third party contractors who work on behalf of or with EventWire to provide you with such Services, to help us
communicate with you or to maintain the Site. However, these contractors do not have any independent right to
share your Personal Information.
EventWire cooperates with all law enforcement inquiries, as well as other third parties to enforce laws, such as:
intellectual property rights, fraud, theft, harassment and other rights. We can (and you authorize us to) disclose
any information about you if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to (a) comply with
relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on us; (b) protect or defend the rights or property of
EventWire or third parties; or (c) assist in any investigation.

that makes the information personally identifiable to you. We may use this Anonymous Information to analyze
inquiry, request and usage patterns so that we may enhance Services and the Site. We reserve the right to use and
disclose Anonymous Information to third parties in our discretion. "Anonymous Information" means information that
is not associated with or linked to your Personal Information; Anonymous Information does not permit the
identification of individual persons.
