In these cases, RelayGuide.com has agreed to provide to the Event personal information collected from people who register for an event. Each Event operates independently from, and may have privacy and security policies wholly different from, RelayGuide.com. Prior to registering for an Event, RelayGuide.com encourages you to contact the Event's organizer and review the Event's privacy and security practices. RelayGuide.com bears no responsibility for the activities of any Event to whom RelayGuide.com may provide information.
3. General Privacy Information.

Personal information and such encrypted credit card numbers collected on RelayGuide.com are stored in a secure operating environment that is not available to the public. All credit card and registration information supplied by users is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. RelayGuide.com conducts frequent site-security audits. "Perfect security," however, does not exist on the Internet.
