TRUE NORTH RADIO FREQUENCY IDENTIFICATION (RFID) POLICY
Radio Frequency Identification (“RFID”) is technology that uses electromagnetic fields to automatically identify and track tags attached to objects. Communitech uses this technology in their conference badge provided to you for all True North events. At the time of entry your conference badge will be used to validate your entry. Your conference badge does not store any of your personal information, including but not limited to your name, phone numbers, mailing address and email address (“Personal Information”), you provided to Communitech when you signed up for any True North event. However, the conference badge does contain a distinctive code which Communitech associates with Personal Information you provided to Communitech at registration. This association allows Communitech to communicate with you at True North events you have signed up for.
To ensure your conference badge works be sure not to bend or perforate any part of the conference badge. Communitech reserves the right to check and scan your conference badge at any time.
