Privacy Policy

The Linux Expo of Southern California gathers personal information from people who register to attend the So Cal Linux Expo. This information is ONLY used by SCALE to improve future Expos. If other groups that participate in SCALE ask for information about attendees to improve their offering at SCALE, and we agree to share it, it will be only those demographics that are not identifiable to any individual. 

We'll treat your personal information like your other valuable possessions; with great care. 

Note that you can give your badge information to vendors if you're interested in getting more information about their products. That's voluntary, and SCALE does not participate in that information exchange.
