Use of Information
Xplor uses the data collected to improve its services to members and for marketing purposes which also relate to the provision of goods and services to members, customers, and registrants. Member and registrant contact information is made available to other members and registrants. This includes the compilation of such information in hard copy directories which are made available to participants and, in limited circumstances, to others.
Xplor members will receive electronic and printed communications regarding the Xplor Global Conference & Exhibit, The Xplorer newsletter, Region and Chapter events, elections, and other information necessary to provide membership services. By the action of obtaining an Xplor membership these member communications are delivered as part of your membership agreement.
Xplor also provides limited information to third parties with which Xplor does business. While this information may include names, titles, companies and their addresses, it does not include telephone numbers, fax numbers or e-mail addresses.
We may monitor how you use our Web sites including search terms you enter, pages visited and documents viewed. If you are a registered user, this information is stored with your registration information. It is unique-number identifiable, and is used solely for purposes of enabling us to provide you with a personalized Web site experience. Aggregated (not personally identifiable) forms of this data may also be used in order to help us understand areas for future research and to identify future features and functions to develop for the Web sites.
This data may also be used by Xplor, in the aggregate, to identify appropriate membership offerings.
Purchases and Fulfillment
When you place an order or register for an Xplor event, we may request additional information such as credit card number and expiration date. This information is used for confirmation and billing purposes. The contact information you provide is used to service the order. Also, when you register for an event, we may request additional information about your hotel, meal and other travel preferences. This information is used only for the specific event.
Xplor uses third-party service providers such as credit card processing companies, shipping companies, mailing houses and event coordinators together with other service providers as required to satisfy customer requests.
When you register for an Xplor event, we provide necessary information to hotels and to facilities hosting events. These parties are allowed to use that personal information only to provide services relevant to the event.

Xplor Members and Nonmembers may decline to have their information shared with non-Xplor third parties.
