General Information

IAPP Global Privacy Summit 2022 Health and Safety

The IAPP prioritizes the safety and well-being of event attendees, sponsors, exhibitors, staff and the community around us. We will continue to monitor and communicate COVID-19 developments and follow recommendations set forth by Washington, D.C., as these regulations are continually subject to change. For more information regarding COVID-19 safety protocols, please click here.

Assistance and accommodations: We’re happy to help. If you need any special accommodations (i.e., person who is blind/visually impaired or person who uses a wheelchair), please contact events@iapp.org in advance to arrange assistance at the Summit.

Dress code: We are an informal bunch. Wear whatever makes you comfortable, but you can't go wrong with business casual. Speaking of comfort, bear in mind that you'll be doing a lot of walking during the Summit. You should plan to wear comfy shoes for most of the week. It would also be wise to dress in layers so that you'll be comfortable in heavily air-conditioned session rooms.

Method of payment: You can make payment by check, wire transfer, Mastercard, Visa, American Express or Discover. Please email us for wire transfer information.

Registration policy: Registration fees represent the cost of a single pass per person. Sorry, no sharing passes.

Cancellation policy: Registration fees are not refundable but are transferable to a person in the same company, pending IAPP approval. No refunds if you cancel or don’t show up. Your completed registration form, online registration and email confirmation constitute a binding agreement between two parties.

Active Learning Day registration policy: You cannot change your registered Active Learning sessions once on-site. We apologize for the inconvenience.

IAPP Events App privacy notice: In association with attending one or more of our conferences, you will have the option to download the mobile app to help you navigate the conference and plan your schedule. The IAPP has engaged a cloud service provider (Cvent) to host the IAPP Events App, which will allow conference attendees to view the program, including any last-minute updates to sessions, speaker biographies and venue navigation. There will no longer be a printed program for events.

To access the app, conference attendees must download the “Cvent Events” app on their mobile device or access the program on Cvent’s event-specific webpage, entering a unique event ID which the IAPP will send by email. The IAPP shares with Cvent event registrants’ first and last name, email address, and mobile phone (if provided) to allow event attendees to be authenticated when they access the web-based event app, and the customization features of the mobile app. More information about Cvent’s privacy practices is available in its global privacy notice.

Privacy notice: We understand that you are aware of and care about your own personal privacy interests, and we take that seriously. This Privacy Notice describes the IAPP’s policies and practices regarding its collection and use of your personal data and sets forth your privacy rights. We recognize that information privacy is an ongoing responsibility and so we will, from time to time, update this privacy notice as we undertake new personal data practices or adopt new privacy policies. If you have questions or concerns, please contact dpo@iapp.org.

Conduct at IAPP events: The IAPP is dedicated to making our meetings and events safe places for all. We do not tolerate harassment of any kind. We insist that all participants at IAPP events — whether attendees, staff, speakers, exhibitors or sponsors — demonstrate respect and courtesy to all. This includes refraining from inappropriate language, comments and behavior, in person or by electronic communications (such as social media).

Anyone who has experienced improper behavior in violation of this policy is encouraged to report it immediately to IAPP event staff. IAPP staff members are trained to elevate such issues immediately. Alternate methods of reporting issues include emailing IAPP President and CEO J. Trevor Hughes at jthughes@iapp.org, or contacting a member of the IAPP Board of Directors. The IAPP reserves the right to rescind registration or attendance at any IAPP event, at any time, for violations of this policy.

Tax deductibility: Training expenses, including your registration fee, travel, lodging and meals, may be tax deductible if they’re for maintaining or improving your professional skills. Consult your tax advisor. IAPP Federal Tax ID 23-3048008.

Inviting a guest? Fantastic! Please email events@iapp.org to register for a Guest Pass in advance, or visit the Troubleshooting Desk on-site. They’ll get to enjoy meals, receptions and entrance to the exhibit hall, for a fee. Guests include a spouse/significant other, friend or adult child (18 or older) who is not in an industry-related occupation. Coworkers or associates in the industry don’t qualify.

Photography/video:  Please be aware that the IAPP will be taking photographs and video in public areas of the conference (session rooms, exhibit hall, etc.). We may use such media in marketing materials, educational products and publications. Your image and the sound of your voice may be recorded. If you are identified during the recording, or identify yourself by name, that information may be included in our materials. Recordings may be edited, copied, exhibited, published or distributed.

Badge scanning: As you enter each educational session, you’ll have your badge scanned by an IAPP staff member standing outside the session room. We use this information to improve logistics at future events and process mandatory continuing legal education credits, if applicable. This information will not be shared.

Please note: Exhibitors and/or sponsors at sponsored speaking sessions or in the exhibit hall may wish to scan your badge so they can contact you with more information. The IAPP uses Expo Logic to provide badge scanning services to exhibitors and/or sponsors who request it. By allowing an exhibitor and/or sponsor to scan your badge, you are consenting to have Expo Logic provide the exhibitor and/or sponsor with your contact information, and thereafter you may be contacted by the exhibitor and/or sponsor post-event.

Badge printing at registration: The IAPP uses Expo Logic to provide badge printing services for those attending the conference. Your information will be shared with Expo Logic for the purpose of printing your contact information on your name badge. A name badge is required to gain access to conference sessions and networking. Your data is removed from Expo Logic following the event.

Please note: The views and opinions expressed in program sessions are those of the speaker(s) and do not necessarily reflect the positions of the IAPP.
