Categories of personal data we collect

QC Ware collects the following types of personal data:

  • Personal identification information (e.g., name, email address, phone number, country etc.)
  • Information related to your current job-role (e.g., position, organization name, industry etc.)
  • Preference information (e.g., which quantum computing topics are you interested in, newsletter subscriptions, etc.)
  • Consent to sharing personal information (e.g., have you consented to sharing your information with Q2B sponsors)
  • Attendee information (e.g., which on-line sessions or on-demand sessions did you attend and for how long)
  • Website visit data (e.g., cookies used to collect IP addresses, browser type, pages visited, etc.)
  • Hotel registration data (e.g. name, dates of requested stay)


How we collect your personal data

We may collect your personal data when you:

  • Register online for a Q2B conference.
  • Voluntarily complete a customer survey or provide feedback on a Q2B website or via email.
  • Use or view a Q2B website via your browser’s cookies.
  • Participate in a Q2B event as a speaker.
  • Register or check-in at a Q2B conference.
  • Scan your badge or otherwise provide your information in connection with your attendance at a Q2B conference.
  • Reserve a hotel room through our hotel reservation website.


How we use your personal data

QC Ware collects your personal data so that we can:

  • Process your registration, including payment, and create/manage your account.
  • Reserve a hotel stay.
  • Email you with conference information.
  • Email you with QC Ware newsletters and other marketing information.
  • Give you access to the content and capabilities you purchased.
  • Customize your website experience.
  • Establish an understanding of our website audience.
  • Share such data, only with your consent, to conference sponsors for sponsor communications in connection with such sponsors’ products and services.


By registering for a Q2B conference and providing your consent to share with sponsors, you give permission to QC Ware to share your personal data with such sponsors and for such sponsors to use your personal data to contact you regarding their products and services.  You may refuse to provide your consent to share your personal data with sponsors or withdraw your consent by contacting QC Ware as described below.

If you participate in a Q2B event as a speaker or exhibitor, your personal information may be used in connection with the running of the event, including advertising and promotion of the Q2B event.

In addition, photos and videos are taken at Q2B events, which may feature attendees, speakers, sponsors or exhibitors. Where we have taken photos and videos at our events that feature you as an attendee, speaker, sponsor or exhibitor, to the extent permitted by applicable data protection laws, those photos and videos may be used for our promotional purposes.

Where Q2B events and exhibitions use badge scanning technology, your personal information will be used to identify you at certain access points, such as to access VIP areas, seminars, entry and exit in other areas of the event. This may provide certain location information. The personal information obtained from badge scanning will be used for access control, security and analyzing visitor traffic with a view to improving the event experience for visitors and others.

You can also allow your badge to be scanned by event exhibitors. When you do so your contact details will be shared with the relevant exhibitor.  By allowing an exhibitor to scan your badge, you give permission to QC Ware to share your personal data with such exhibitor and for such exhibitor to use your personal data to contact you regarding their products and services.

If you no longer wish to be contacted by QC Ware for marketing purposes, you have the right to unsubscribe here.  If you unsubscribe, we may still send you non-promotional communications, such as security alerts and notices related to your use of our services, including your attendance and/or participation at Q2B events.

Notice to California Residents

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) provides California residents with rights regarding their personal information. 

Personal Information Sales Opt-Out

The CCPA gives California residents the right to opt out of the sale of their personal information.  If you are a California resident and would like to exercise this right, please contact us at privacy@qcware.com

Categories of Information We Collect

Details regarding the information that we collect can be found above.

Access to Specific Information and Data Portability

You have the right to request your personal information that we have collected and stored. Once we receive and confirm a verifiable data portability request from you, we will disclose the personal information we collected about you over the prior 12 months.

Deletion Request Rights

You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we have collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable request for deletion of your personal information, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.

We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, or otherwise perform our contract with you.

Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.

Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.

Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.).

Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.

Comply with a legal obligation.

Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights

To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by contacting us at the addresses below.

Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable request related to your personal information. 


You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period.  Upon receiving your request, we may ask you for certain information for verification.  We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

Response Timing and Format

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 45 additional days for a total of 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. We will deliver our response to you in the same format we receive the request (i.e., via email if you send in an email request).

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable.  We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.


We will not discriminate against you for exercising your CCPA rights. Unless allowed under the CCPA, we will not deny you goods or services, charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, or provide you with a different level of quality of goods or services in response to you exercising your CCPA rights. Please be aware that if you purchase a Q2B event admission and later request that we delete your personal information, we may not be able to provide you with the admission you purchased because admission and badges may rely on the use of your personal information.  

Other California Privacy Rights

California’s “Shine the Light” law (Civil Code Section § 1798.83) permits users of Q2B websites that are California residents to request a detailed list of any third-party entities with which we share personal information for their own marketing purposes. You may opt-out of having your personal data shared with third-parties by sending your request including your full name, email address, and postal address to the addresses set forth below.  California residents using the Q2B websites are entitled to know that they may file grievances and complaints with the California Department of Consumer Affairs, 400 R Street, Suite 1080, Sacramento, CA 95814, by phone at 916-445-1254 or 800-952-5210, or by email to dca at dca.ca.gov.
