Captive Eight (“us”, “we”, or “our”) operates the https://captiveeight.com website (the “Website”).
This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal data when you use our executive networking service (the “Service”) and the choices you have associated with that data.
We use your data to provide and improve the Service. The Website and Service are solely directed to, and intended for, Captive Eight’s business customers, and not for individual consumers.
Information Collection and Use
We collect several different types of information for various purposes to provide and improve our Service to you.
Types of Data Collected
Personal Data That You Provide
While using our Service, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you (“Personal Data”) with regard to our networking events. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to:
- Email address
- Phone number
- Work/home mailing address
- Cookies and Usage Data
Your Personal Data, specifically name, title and company, may be shared with a sponsor of one of our networking events so that they may express interest in connecting with you.
From time to time, our Website may be configured to collect domain information. This data enables us to become more familiar with which users visit our site, how often they visit and what parts of the site they visit most often. Captive Eight uses this information to improve our Website. No personally identifiable information is gathered in this process. This information is collected automatically and requires no action on your part.
We may also collect information how the Service is accessed and used (“Usage Data”). This Usage Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol address (“IP address”), browser type, browser version, the pages of our Service that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages, unique device identifiers and other diagnostic data.
Automatically Collected Information and Anonymous Information
Each time a visitor comes to the Website, Captive Eight collects some information to improve the overall quality of the visitor’s online experience.
Captive Eight collects aggregate queries for internal reporting and also counts, tracks, and aggregates the visitor’s activity into Captive Eight’s analysis of general traffic-flow at the Website. To these ends, Captive Eight may merge information about you into aggregated group data. In some cases, Captive Eight may remove personal identifiers from Personal Data and maintain it in aggregate form that may later be combined with other information to generate anonymous, aggregated statistical information. Such anonymous, group data may be shared on an aggregated basis with Captive Eight’s affiliates, business partners, service providers and/or vendors; if it does so, Captive Eight will not disclose your individual identity.
Web Server Logs and IP Addresses
An Internet Protocol (“IP”) address is a number that automatically identifies the computer or device you have used to access the Internet. The IP address enables our server to send you the web pages that you want to visit, and it may disclose the server owned by your Internet Service Provider. Captive Eight may use IP addresses to conduct Website analyses and performance reviews and to administer the Website.
Cookies and Web Beacons
Periodically, some pages on this Website may use “cookies,” which are small files that the site places on your hard drive for identification purposes. These files are used for site registration and customization the next time you visit us. You should note that cookies cannot read data off of your hard drive. Your web browser may allow you to be notified when you are receiving a cookie, giving you the choice to accept it or not. You can also refuse all cookies by turning them off in your browser.

Some of the Website’s web pages may use web beacons in conjunction with cookies to compile aggregate statistics about Website usage. A web beacon is an electronic image (also referred to as an “action tag,” “single-pixel,” or “clear GIF”) that is commonly used to track the traffic patterns of users from one web page to another in order to maximize web traffic flow and to otherwise analyze the effectiveness of the Website. Some web beacons may be unusable if you elect to reject their associated cookies.
