What is Personal Information?
Miller Tanner Associates defines personal information as information that identifies an individual or that can be reasonably associated with a specific person or entity, such as a name, contact information, Internet (IP) address. Miller Tanner Associates collects personal information to facilitate an individual’s event-specific requirements (e.g. travel itinerary, dietary restrictions) and/or training details (e.g. training progress, assessment score) within our web-based learning management system.
Information on Data Processing / Scope of Processing
We collect the personal information that you provide us, such as when you:
- Register for an event that Miller Tanner Associates has been contracted to manage and create a user profile
- Register for an account within our learning management system
- Voluntarily provide feedback, via a questionnaire, for an event
- Sign up to receive marketing materials from Miller Tanner Associates. You may opt-out of these communications at any time
- Submit forms for event-specific reimbursements (where applicable)
- When you contact us for any reason
We may automatically collect some information when you visit our website, such as your computer’s IP address and operating system, the site from which you linked to us, your site activity, the time and date of your visit. This information may be collected through the use of “cookies” and web beacons (see Online Specifics below).
Information Gathering and Use
Your browser will accept cookies and allow automatic collection of information unless you change the browser default settings. If cookies are disabled, our website and related products will not load properly.
Protection of Personal Information
We have physical, administrative, organizational and technical security measures in place to protect personal information from loss, misuse, or alteration while it is under our control. Further, when you enter personal information online, that information is encrypted prior to transmission using a security protocol called SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) / TLS (Transport Layer Security).
Online account information is accessible only by using a password. You must keep your password confidential. You are responsible for all uses of Miller Tanner Associates internet properties (e.g. event.millertanner.com) and are advised not to share your password with anyone else.

Use of Personal Information by Miller Tanner Associates
The personal information we collect is limited to what is necessary in order to process your event or training registration, coordinate travel or accommodations on your behalf, provide you with high-quality service, and administer your account, including distribution of our post-event surveys and/or to provide payment for services or reimbursements. For example, we may:
- Notify you about your itinerary or relevant event information. This may include changes to aforementioned information.
- Contact you for your feedback about the event you attended and the service that was provided.
Sharing of Personal Information
We share information in these circumstances:
We may provide information to a third party as necessary to fulfill an event registration that you completed with us. For example, we may provide your contact information to a travel agency, and a ground transportation company to ensure safe travel between your point of origin, the airport and the event venue. However, we give suppliers, and others involved in the travel and accommodation chain only the information needed to provide you the services you require, and we have a contractual agreement with such vendors requiring them to keep the information confidential and not to use it for other purposes. Please note that if you provide health information during registration, such as dietary or special needs, Miller Tanner Associates must share this information with certain third parties to act on your request. We are not responsible for any information you provide directly to these parties. Transfers of personal data to third parties who assist Miller Tanner Associates in providing the services that you request (e.g. hotels, car rentals, airlines, Visa applications, client reports) may be located in non-European Union jurisdictions which may not provide an equivalent level of protection.
Transfer of Value
Following the completion of an event, Miller Tanner Associates will provide reports and documents to the organization (e.g. Sponsor / CRO) that contracted Miller Tanner Associates for the event. These reports will include personal information and transfer of values related to the hospitality provided for you at the event.
We may contract with others to perform services on our behalf. For example, we might retain a company to print and or ship event materials, distribute emails, or process surveys. If any of these service providers need access to your personal information, we require them to use it only to perform the services for us. We also require that they maintain the confidentiality of the information while in their possession.
Individuals Employed by our Vendors
If you are a vendor engaged by us, or if you are employed or otherwise engaged by a vendor engaged by us, we may collect and otherwise process your name and company contact information where it is in our legitimate interest to: (i) manage our relationship with vendors; and (ii) perform, or to enter into, contracts with such vendors (for example to process payment details). We will have obtained your personal data from you, or from your employer.
If you are a vendor, we ask that you provide this notice to your employees and other staff who have or have had dealings with us on your behalf.
