Information We Collect and Receive
We collect and receive information that relates to identified or identifiable individuals (“personal information”) as follows:
Information you give us
You may give us personal information when you apply for the SixThirty go-to-market program or otherwise submit information related to the Services or other communications with us, such as:
- Personal and Business Contact information, such as your first name, last name, physical address, email address, telephone number, job title, and company name.
- Profile information, such as your username and password, picture, industry, interests and preferences.
- Usage information, such as information about how you use our Website and interact with us.
As part of our Services, we host, coordinate, and operate the go-to-market program, mentor sessions, and other public or private events (“Events”) where you may engage with SixThirty, founders, teams, corporate partners, sponsors, investors, and other community members. We may create audio or visual recordings of these events, take photographs, conduct interviews or surveys, or conduct similar activities at these Events (“Event Recordings”), and we will collect and process, certain personal information to the extent incorporated into these Event Recordings. You may object to the processing of your personal information in connection with Event Recordings during the Event by speaking with organizers of the Event.
If we create any Event Recordings, we or our event sponsors or participants may use those Event Recordings (including any personal information therein) as part of our marketing and promotional activities. Further, we may also publish the Event Records, including personal information therein, in connection with our documentation of or publicity relating to those Events, for example, on our Website, a relevant Event-specific page, or a Social Networking Site. We may seek your consent or a release from you in the event the nature of our processing requires such consent or release. However, in certain circumstances, we may process or publish certain video, images, etc. without your consent, such as when we publish on an Event page certain Event Recordings that include images of groups or crowds in attendance at an Event.
Information from Social Networking Sites.
Information automatically collected.
We may automatically log information about you and your computer or mobile device when you access our Website. For example, we may log your computer or mobile device operating system name and version, manufacturer and model, browser type, browser language, screen resolution, the website you visited before browsing to our Website, pages you viewed, how long you spent on a page, access times and information about your use of and actions on our Website. We collect this information about you using cookies.
Cookies and Similar Technologies
We may collect personal information using “cookies”. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer or mobile device until you delete them).
We use two broad categories of cookies: (1) first party cookies, served directly by us to your computer or mobile device, which we use to recognize your computer or mobile device when it revisits our Website; and (2) third party cookies, which are served by service providers on our Website, and can be used by such service providers to recognize your computer or mobile device when it visits other websites or online services.
We may also use technologies that function similarly to cookies called pixel tags (which are also known as web beacons and clear GIFs) to track the actions of users on our Website. Unlike cookies, which are stored on the hard drive of your computer or mobile device by a website, pixel tags are embedded invisibly on webpages. Pixel tags can be used, for example, to measure the success of our marketing campaigns and compile statistics about usage of the Website, so that we can better understand how users interact with our Website.

Cross-Border Data Transfer
Whenever we transfer your personal information out of the EEA to countries not deemed by the European Commission to provide an adequate level of personal information protection, the transfer will be based on one of the following safeguards recognized by the European Commission as providing adequate protection for personal information, where required by EU data protection legislation:
- Contracts approved by the European Commission which impose data protection obligations on the parties to the transfer. For further details, see European Commission Model contracts for the transfer of personal information to third countries.
- Binding Corporate Rules that have been approved by the European Commission and deemed to ensure that a given processor or controller provides adequate protection of data.
Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal information out of the EEA, including the then-current transfer basis used to authorize transfers to specific third parties.
