I don't know how many conventions you attend or which ones you attend.. but every single one I've been too ( to this date four different conventions) requires personal info upon registration. Hell looking at several convention websites.. ALL of them require personal info ( Name, home address, email, sometimes phone number)

QuoteInformation-Sharing Disclosure, "Shine the Light" - California Civil Code sections 1798.83-1798.84. This law lets consumers learn how their personal information is shared by companies for marketing purposes and encourages businesses to let their customers opt-out of such information sharing. In response to a customer request, a business must provide either: 1) a list of the categories of personal information disclosed to other companies for their marketing purposes during the preceding calendar year, with the names and addresses of those companies, OR 2) a privacy statement giving the customer a cost-free opportunity to opt-out of such information sharing. Financial services companies subject to the California Financial Information Privacy Act are exempted from this law. See the Recommended Practices, pdf in relation to this law.

This information is also very limited to internal staff (and only on a need-to-know basis).* What we do share is a very general demographic (gender, age groups primarily).

Good to see you addressing this, as I think it's important as well. I also mentioned last year how lax the security was for our registration accounts online (the fact that you only need a zip code and email address, both very simple pieces of info to obtain, and you can gain access to more detailed information through it). I could effortlessly log into any one of my friends' accounts and review/alter their information without their consent if I wanted. I requested that maybe CMR (or whoever will be in charge of registration) consider using a user-generated password to protect this information, but that concern wasn't addressed for this year and it continued to be open for anyone to access. I'm hoping again that next year passwords are considered for online registration accounts.
