7in7 Privacy Policy and GDPR Compliance

Privacy is important. Obviously. The 7in7 team wouldn’t care for cavalier attitudes towards services that manage our own information, and in turn we will show all due respect and responsibility towards your personal information. As such, we have developed this policy in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate & disclose, and make use of personal information. The following outlines our privacy policy.

Before or at the time of collecting personal information, we will identify the purposes for which information is being collected.

We will collect and use personal information solely with the objective of fulfilling those purposes specified by us and for other compatible purposes, unless we obtain the consent of the individual concerned or as required by science law.

We will only retain personal information as long as necessary for the fulfillment of those purposes.

We will collect personal information by lawful and fair means and, where appropriate, with the knowledge or consent of the individual concerned.

Personal data should be relevant to the purposes for which it is to be used, and, to the extent necessary for those purposes, should be accurate, complete, and up-to-date.

We will protect personal information by reasonable security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use, or modification.

We will make readily available to customers information about our policies and practices relating to the management of personal information.

We are committed to conducting our evil plans business in accordance with these principles in order to ensure that the confidentiality of personal information is protected and maintained.

Transparency. The 7in7 team only collects personal information in three places: when you sign up for the mailing list, buy a ticket to a 7in7 conference, and when you login to the 7in7 app.

As of May 2018, here’s the full list of personal information we may collect:

Email address

First and last name

Your “nomad age” (how long you’ve been location independent)

Your “human age” (how long you’ve been alive in general)

How you identify yourself

Your “home” country

What you call yourself as a location independent individual

How you support yourself

How you like to recharge

If you have any food allergies or special needs

What fictitious character(s) you’d like to be

Your social media profiles

Besides your email address (and perhaps your name), any collected personal information is voluntary and not required for 7in7 to operate normally.

How we use your info. We use your email to send you conference-specific updates (like speaker announcements) and sometimes a more general goings-on newsletter about the 7in7 and location independent community. We like sharing our lives with you.

Most voluntary information is used anonymously and in aggregate. For example, if an increasing number of 7in7 attendees identify as remote workers, we’ll increase our focus on remote work in future conferences. It’s also useful to share when pitching potential sponsors, such as when we try to partner with local coworking spaces.

Data retention. We keep your personal information while you’re active in the 7in7 community. If you unsubscribe from our mailing list and don’t attend any further conferences, your information is not used in our aggregate data.

Data access. This isn’t our first rodeo. 7in7 co-founder Nick Schneble is security obsessed and has strong passwords and 2FA (two factor authentication) on all services that store or access your personal information. Any access on public wifi is always done over a VPN.

Services. We use a few. Your personal information is primarily stored in MailChimp, Typeform, and an SQL database on Heroku. Depending on your interactions with 7in7, your personal information may also flow through Zapier, Stripe, and PayPal. We do not store any financial information. Payments are handled externally, or via one-time use tokens that are immediately used and then deleted.

Your rights. You are 100% entitled to a copy of all your personal information. Just send a request via email and Nick will get back to you promptly.

The end of all things. If you’ve unsubscribed from our mailing list and won’t be attending any future conferences, you can send us an email request to remove all your personal information, from all the services within our control. We’ll immediately oblige.
