The Pigeonhole Platform can be used for a number of different types of events including, but not limited to industry conferences, corporate events, political campaign events, classrooms, national television and other events (each such event, a “Live Event”. The use of the Pigeonhole Platform as part of a session for each such Live Event refers to a “Pigeonhole Live Session”). The Pigeonhole Platform is hosted by Pigeonhole, and includes a real-time conference Q&A tool that enables conference organizers (“Organizers” and each, an “Organizer”) and moderators or speakers of each such Live Event selected by Organizers (“Moderators” and each, a “Moderator”) to collect questions, comments, surveys and other information (“Questions & Comments”) in real time from conference attendees or audience members of a Pigeonhole Live Session (“Audience Members” and each, an “Audience Member” and together with Moderators, collectively “Participants” and each, a “Participant”). In order to participate in a Pigeonhole Live Session, an Audience Member must have a computer that can access our Website, or, when available, a mobile device enabled with our Mobile App. Participants may be required to enter Login Credentials (as defined below) or a passcode (“Passcode”) generated on the Pigeonhole Platform by the Organizer and provided to Participants by the Organizer. Participants may then submit, post, or vote on questions, comments, or polls in real time during a Pigeonhole Live Session, as configured and enabled by the Organizer.
Our primary purpose in collecting Personal Information (as defined below) is to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient, and customized experience in the use of our Services. This allows us to provide services and features that most likely meet your needs, and to customize our service to make your experience safer and easier. We only collect Personal Information about you that we consider necessary for achieving this purpose. “Personal Information” means information that specifically identifies an individual (such as a name, address, telephone number, mobile number or e-mail address) or other information about that individual that is directly linked to Personal Information. However, “Personal Information” does not include "aggregated" or “de-identified” information that cannot be used to personally identify you.
In general, you can access and submit Questions & Comments in a Pigeonhole Live Session simply by entering the Passcode provided by the Organizer without telling us who you are. However, certain Organizers may require you to submit Login Credentials (as defined below) before you can enter their Pigeonhole Live Session.
We may use the Personal Information we collect for the following purposes (“Purposes”):
We automatically track certain information based upon your use of our Services. We use this information to do internal research on our users’ demographics, interests, and behavior to better understand, protect and serve you and our community.
By using our Website or our Services, you indicate your consent for Pigeonhole, the Organizers and our affiliates to send cookies to your computer or mobile device, as applicable, in order to uniquely identify your browser and improve the quality of our Services. You may turn off cookies in your browser, though in doing so some or all of our Services may not work. For a description of how cookies work, please see the section entitled “Cookies” below.
Like many websites, we may automatically gather certain information about our Website traffic and store it in log files. This information includes Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, browser language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, clickstream data and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the Services, to track users’ activity and to gather demographic information about our user base.
We may link this automatically collected data to Personal Information. IP addresses may be tied to Personal Information to troubleshoot access issues and ban users by IP from certain communities upon appropriate request.
We may use a third-party tracking service that uses log files and cookies (see below) to track non- Personal Information about visitors to the Website in the aggregate. This service captures usage and volume statistics as well as geographical location data to compile usage reports and maps for optimization and troubleshooting purposes.
We may use both session ID and persistent cookies.
A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” file.
We may set a persistent cookie to store your password, so you do not have to enter it more than once. Persistent cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Website.
If you reject cookies, you may still use our Website, but your ability to use some areas of our Website may be limited.
We may employ a software technology called clear gifs, also referred to as web beacons or web bugs, that help manage content on our Services by tracking what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We may tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ Personal Information.
We use clear gifs in our HTML-based e-mails to let us know which e-mails recipients have opened. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. If you would like to opt-out of these e-mails, please see “Choice and Opt-out.”
We may use embedded scripts, which are programming code that collects information about your interactions with the Website, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your computer or other device from our server or a third party provider and is deactivated or deleted when you disconnect from the Website. In addition, we may use a variety of other technologies that collect similar information for security and fraud detection purposes.
If you visit or use our Website on a mobile device, we may collect information from your device, including device ID, your mobile carrier, and your physical GPS location. We may store and use that information for security purposes (for example, for user verification). We do not share your location information with third parties. Depending on your device, you may turn off location services by going to your device settings.
Once you have established your account on your mobile device or computer, we may collect information we receive from your mobile device or computer, such as your device’s type, number, and the serial number of its chip.
Use of the Website on a mobile device may allow your mobile carrier or other access provider to view data that appears on the device as a result.
In general, you can access and submit Questions & Comments in a Pigeonhole Live Session without registering by simply entering the Passcode provided by the Organizer without providing any Personal Information.

If you purchase or subscribe to a fee-based Service or purchase other products or services from us, we request certain Personal Information from you on our transaction form. We may require you to provide contact information (such as name, e-mail, and shipping address) and financial information (such as a credit card number, expiration date, and account number if paying through a third party payment processing service). We may use an outside credit card processing company to bill or process payments for goods or services. These companies are not permitted to retain, share, store or use Personal Information for any other purposes.
