The SHOT Show respects the information provided by our customers. Because we gather certain types of information when our customers communicate with us, we believe you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the information we capture and the use of that information. This privacy statement discloses the type of information we capture about our customers, how we use it to communicate with our customers, and how you can request to no longer receive communications from SHOT Show.
This policy applies to all customers of SHOT Show, including, without limitation, our show exhibitors, show visitors, customer inquiries speakers, press, and other individuals with whom NSSF or Reed-US maintain business relationships or communications concerning SHOT Show.
Customer Information and Use
Two primary types of information are gathered about our customers:
Financial Information is payment information used for or gathered during the registration process and includes, without limitation, credit card numbers, financial institutions, and expiration dates. This information is not used for any purpose other than that for which it is being provided to us, and is used only to the extent necessary for processing the transaction or to facilitate future transactions.
Professional Information includes, without limitation, name, address, company name, company address, phone number, fax number, and email address, as well as questions answered on survey or registration forms, and entries in SHOT Show promotions. Data captured during a customer's visit to the SHOT Show website, or through any other contact between SHOT Show and a customer is also considered professional information and may also be stored in our customer database for internal use by Reed-US and/or NSSF. Professional information may be shared with other organizations or SHOT Show customers for the purpose of facilitating business relationships believed by SHOT Show to be in our customers' best interests or which may be of interest to our customers. Professional information may also be released by SHOT Show to comply with the law, or judicial or government inquiry, or to enable SHOT the Show to protect its legal rights.
