This policy applies to the following classification of individuals that interact with Cvent:

  • CUSTOMERS: Customers are individuals that are employees or associates of Cvent’s direct customers (for example, event planners, travel buyers and meeting space providers), including customer personnel that are assigned a login ID and are authorized to access and use our Applications pursuant to an active Cvent agreement, or under a temporary evaluation license, if available. Additionally, Customers include individuals who self-register to access our Applications. 

  • CUSTOMER DATA SUBJECT: Customer Data Subjects are individuals that interact with our Customers through our Applications. These include our Customers’ current and prospective clients, members, attendees, sponsors, exhibitors, marketing partners, hotel guests or other business contacts. For example, Customer Data Subjects include individuals that register for an event organized by a Customer, download an event-related mobile app, participate in a virtual event organized by a Customer, complete an online survey, or make a hotel or meeting space reservation using one of Cvent's Applications.

  • VISITORS: Individuals and prospective customers who interact with our Websites (for instance, to access our Supplier Network without registration (as a non-Customer), to read about Cvent products and services, download a white paper, or sign up for an online demo); those who attend Cvent marketing events (for instance, Cvent CONNECT®, Cvent live events and webinars); those who we meet at a tradeshow; or those who we learn about from third parties or other external sources. 

    Cvent’s direct customers are organizations and businesses that use our Applications to process personal data about their Customer Data Subjects.  Cvent processes personal data about Customer Data Subjects in our Applications as a “data processor” or “service provider” only according to our Customers’ instructions.  If you are a Customer Data Subject and have questions about how a Cvent Customer uses your data or want to exercise your rights regarding your personal data, you should direct your request or inquiry to the Cvent Customer that controls your data.  For example, if you have attended an event hosted by a Cvent Customer, you should direct your data rights requests to the host of your event. 


Our Applications are flexible and allow our Customers to collect a variety of personal data from and about their Customer Data Subjects, including name, organization, title, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number, social media account ID, credit or debit card number and other information including but not limited to meal preferences, interests, opinions, activities, and occupation. We encourage Customer Data Subjects to review the Customers’ privacy policies to further understand the types of data collected.

For a more detailed list of our Applications, please refer to the section titled “What are Cvent's products covered by this policy?”. Cvent’s use of personal information collected through our Applications shall be limited to the purpose of providing the service for which our Customers have engaged Cvent, to improve our services, or as required or permitted by law. 
If you do not agree with our policies and practices, you may choose not to use our Applications. 

Customers can use our customizable Applications to collect personal data in a variety of ways as outlined in the examples below.  

  • When Customer Data Subjects voluntarily and explicitly enter personal data into our Applications. 

  • When our Customers enter Customer Data Subjects into our Applications, when permitted, including by having a legitimate business interest or obtaining consent from a Customer Data Subject. 

  • Automatically, as Customer Data Subjects interact with our Applications, using commonly used information gathering technologies such as cookies. For additional information about these technologies, see the section below titled How does Cvent use cookies and similar technologies?"


If a Customer Data Subject chooses to use our Applications to conduct business with a Customer (for example: to register for or check into an event, respond to an online survey, download a mobile application, make a room reservation, or send or respond to a Request for Proposal (“RFP”)), any information provided in connection with that interaction will be transferred to, and under the control of, the Customer. 

Customers will also have access to information (including personal data and Application usage data) related to how Customer Data Subject interact with the Applications they use. In such instances, the Customers are the data controllers of the Customer Data Subject’s personal data, under the European Economic Area (“EEA”) data protection laws.  Therefore, Cvent cannot and does not take responsibility for the privacy practices of Customers. 

The information practices of our Customers are governed by their privacy policies. We encourage Customer Data Subjects to review the Customers’ privacy policies to understand their practices and procedures. 


As a service provider, Cvent does not use personal data of our Customer Data Subjects for any purposes other than to provide services that our Customers have contracted us to provide through our Applications, as noted below, to improve our services, or as required or permitted by law. Cvent does not sell personal data of our Customer Data Subjects for monetary or other consideration.  Furthermore, Cvent does not share Customer Data Subject personal data with any third parties for cross-context behavioral advertising, whether or not for monetary or other valuable consideration.  


We collect personal data from our Customers in order to facilitate communication and delivery of the Applications that our Customers are interested in or contract us to provide. For example, we may collect Customer contact information, whether through the execution of a contract, use of our services, a form on our Website, queries submitted to our chat agent, an interaction with our sales or customer support team, sign up for an event, or a response to one of our surveys or marketing emails. We may also collect credit card information (e.g., credit card number and expiration date, billing address, etc.) or other customary bank information needed for billing and payment purposes. 

We may record Customer and Visitor phone calls, video calls, teleconferences and web conferences (including audio and video content) for legitimate business interests related to providing Customer support, compliance with laws, training and coaching, process improvement, and quality assurance.  We may analyze the content of our calls using data analytics tools to gain better insights into our interactions with customers.  We will always notify you before a call will be recorded and will obtain consent from you where required by law.  We retain such recordings until 90 days after the date of recording unless otherwise needed for contract implementation or further employee training.  

We and our vendors collect Customer usage information about how our Customers interact with our Applications. This includes which webpages you visit, what you click on, when you perform certain actions, what language preference you have, what you buy, and so on. 

We process Customer’s and their Customer Data Subjects’ personal data in the following manner:

  • To disclose to our subsidiaries and affiliates for the purpose of providing services to our Customers and their Customer Data Subjects.
  • To disclose to contractors, service providers, and other third parties as reasonably necessary or prudent to provide, maintain and support our Applications for our Customers and their Customer Data Subjects, such as, for example, payment processors and data center or Web hosting providers. Cvent does not share, sell or trade any information with such third parties for any promotional purposes
  • To deliver the services that our Customer has contracted us to provide through our Applications. Some examples include: 
    • If a Customer Data Subject uses one of our Applications to register for an event, we will use their provided e-mail address to send them information and announcements relating to that event.
    • If a Customer Data Subject uses one of our Applications to pay for event registration fees or other products and services using their credit cards, we will pass the credit card information to payment card processors to validate the payment information and complete the transactions. 
    • When a Customer submits an RFP to a meeting space provider listed on the Cvent Supplier Network, or to a Customer's Business Contact as directed by the Customer, Cvent will contact that venue, management company or Customer Data Subject and disclose information, which contains personal data, necessary for it to respond to the RFP. 
    • When a Customer reserves a meeting space or hotel room at a venue utilizing Cvent’s InstantBook service, Cvent will share necessary personal data with the venue directly or via that venue’s technology platform, in order to complete the booking directly with Customer. 
    • When a Customer or Customer Data Subject uses their social media credentials to share information on their social media platform or to log into one of our Applications, we will share information with their social media account provider. The information we share will be governed by the social media site’s privacy policy. 
    • To disclose to event organizers, exhibitors, or other attendees, as directed by a Customer or consented to by a Customer Data Subject, such as by consenting to having an exhibitor scan their event badge to share their contact information, opting-in or clicking to give consent to receive exhibitor information, or actively consenting to share information in a Cvent Application (e.g., name, contact information, profile picture, survey responses, Q&A features, comments, messages, poll responses, etc.). 
    • As instructed by Customer, to connect Customer Data Subjects with one another by relying on matching algorithms to recommend compatible Customer Data Subjects for optional business networking. 
  • To deliver to a third party in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, recapitalization, reorganization, dissolution or other sale or transfer of some or all Cvent’s assets, whether as a continuing operating business or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation or similar proceeding, in which personal data held by Cvent about our Customers and Customer Data Subjects is among the assets transferred. 
  • For our internal business purposes that include administering access and use of our Applications, data analysis, securely identifying Customers upon logging onto an Application, enhancing or modifying our Applications, determining the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns, billing for Services, and operating our business.
  • As we believe to be necessary or appropriate: (a) under applicable law, including laws outside your country of residence; (b) to respond to requests from public and government authorities including public and government authorities outside your country of residence; and (c) to protect against or identify fraudulent transactions.
  • For other purposes when Customer Data Subjects provide consent.
    We aggregate information about (i) Customers and Customer Data Subjects, and (ii) the use of our Applications in order to improve our Applications and to create benchmark and other business intelligence products. None of the aggregated information contain personal data (i.e., does not identify any individual). 


For individuals that are from the European Economic Area (EEA) or other regions that stipulate a lawful basis for processing personal information (such as under GDPR Article 6), our legal basis for collecting and using their personal information will depend on the nature and circumstances of the processing activity. Where we are the processor for our Customers, our legal basis may be fulfilment of a contract or consent. Where we are the controller, our legal basis will be consent or legitimate interest where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by the individual’s data protection interests, or fundamental rights and freedoms. These interests are to provide individuals with access to the Applications and features of the Applications; to send them information they have requested; to ensure the security of our Applications by trying to prevent unauthorised or malicious activities; or to enforce compliance with our terms of use, contracts and other policies.  


Unless otherwise provided in our contract with our Customer, we process the data until 90 days after the termination of the contract, at which time we remove it from our production environment. Within 13 months, we remove the data from our backup media. 


Depending on their jurisdiction, Customer Data Subjects have the right to request access to their personal data and, if necessary, have it amended, deleted or restricted. Customer Data Subjects can also ask for some types of personal data to be delivered to them, or another organization they nominate, in a structured and machine-readable format.  

Where we process your personal data on the basis of your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent. See the Cvent contact section below. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. Customer Data Subjects in the EEA also have the right to complain to a supervisory authority for data protection in the country where they live, or where they work – although we hope that we can assist with any queries or concerns you have about our use of your personal data. 

Cvent processes Customer Data Subjects' data under the direction of our Customers and has no direct control or ownership of the personal data we process. Customers are responsible for complying with any regulations or laws requiring notice, disclosure or obtaining consent prior to transferring the data to Cvent for processing purposes. Any Customer Data Subject that seeks to access, correct or delete data, should direct their query to the Customer. If the Customer requests Cvent to delete, rectify or access the personal data of a Customer Data Subject to comply with data protection regulations, Cvent will process this request within the required time under the applicable regulation or law. 

We will not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect. In such instances, we will inform the Customer about the legal obligations that prevent us from fulfilling the request.


Customers have the same rights to access, correct or delete their personal data as outlined above. 

Any Customer can access, correct or delete their data, or their Customer Data Subject data by submitting a request on our Website at Cvent will process this request within the required time under the applicable regulation or law. 

We will not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect. In such instances, we will inform the Customer about the legal obligations that prevent us from fulfilling the request. 

We will maintain an audit history of any requests to access, correct or delete personal information to maintain a record of compliance with regulatory requirements.

Visitor Personal Data Collected 

Cvent collects personal data including name, title, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number, social media account ID, company information (including financial and billing information when purchasing Cvent services). We may collect this Visitor information directly from the Visitor through a form on our Website, queries submitted to our chat agent, an interaction with our sales or customer support team, when signing up for an event, contest entries, promotional enquiries, or a through a response to one of our surveys or marketing emails. We use this information to provide you with additional details about our services, conduct research, provide whitepapers or to contact you after your visit.  When visiting our Websites, attending Cvent marketing events or providing us with their personal information, Visitors consent to the collection, processing and storage of their personal information as described in this section. 

We also collect Visitor personal data from third party sources, such as third parties from whom we have purchased business contact information, public databases, joint marketing partners, and social media platforms.  In some cases, Cvent may combine personal data you have provided to us with personal data collected from other sources.  We use this data to improve our Websites and advertising, and to identify prospective marketing opportunities.

Storing of Visitor Personal Data 

Where we process Visitor personal data for marketing purposes or with Visitor consent, we process the data until the Visitor asks us to stop. It typically takes up to 30 days to implement your request, but in no event longer than required by applicable law. Cvent will not retain Visitor personal data longer than the statutory retention period permitted in the local jurisdictions where Cvent services are marketed and provided. Where Cvent retains Visitor personal data, we also keep a record of when Visitors have asked us not to send direct marketing or to process Visitor data indefinitely so that we can respect the Visitor’s request in the future. 

Sharing of Visitor Data 

Cvent may share information with third party service providers contracted to provide services on our behalf as well as third parties who resell Cvent services. 

Cvent may also engage with business partners to jointly offer products, services or other programs such as webinars or whitepapers and from time to time, we may share personal data if you purchase or show interest in any jointly-offered products or services. 

Cvent will only share personal data of Visitors or Customers who attend a Cvent marketing event with third parties if a) the Visitor consents, b) the Visitor permits their badge to be scanned, or c) it is permissible under applicable law. 


Access, correct or delete Visitor data 

Visitors have the same rights to access, correct or delete their personal data as do our Customers, as outlined in section How can a Customer access, correct or delete your personal data?” 

Any Visitor that seeks to access, correct or delete data, can do so by submitting a request on our Website at Cvent will process this request within 30 days. 

We will not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect. In such instances, we will inform the Visitor about the legal obligations that prevent us from fulfilling the request.  

We will maintain an audit history of any requests to access, correct or delete personal information to maintain a record of compliance with regulatory requirements. 


Cookies and similar technologies 

All practices related to cookies and their usage described in section “How does Cvent use cookies and similar technologies” also applies to Visitors when they interact with our Websites. 


None of our Applications are directed to children under 16 years of age. We do not directly solicit or knowingly collect personal data from children under 16. If we learn that we have inadvertently collected personal information from children under the age of 16, we will delete as soon as practicable. 

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of our Customers with which your child may interact. You should review the applicable terms and policies for Customers to determine their appropriateness for your child, including their data collection and use practices. 


Cookies and Web Beacons

We and authorized third parties use cookies or similar automatic data collection technologies as individuals interact with our Website or our Applications to collect certain information about their equipment, browsing actions and patterns, including details of your visits to our Applications, such as the date and time you access our Applications, length of time you spend on our Applications, websites that linked to our Applications or websites linked from our Applications, the resources and content that you access and use on the Applications; information about your computer and internet connection, such as your IP Address, computer type, screen resolution, language, Internet browser type and version. We do not use any of these technologies to collect information from Customer Data Subjects for marketing or advertising purposes.  Our Customers may add cookies or other similar technologies through our Applications for their own purposes, including for marketing purposes. 

Browser Cookies.  A cookie is a small file placed on a computer hard drive.  Web browsers can be configured to restrict or entirely block cookies, to configure cookie notification settings and/or to delete cookies already present on the browser or device.  Information on how to do this is provided by the web browser’s help/reference section. Limiting or restricting certain types of cookies may prevent a Customer or Customer Data Subject from using certain portions of our Applications, depending on how the browser settings are configured.  For example, event registration cannot be completed successfully if cookies are disabled in the web browser. Unless the browser setting has been adjusted so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when the browser interacts with our Applications.   

Purpose.  Our Website and Applications use cookies that serve the following purpose types:  

  • Strictly necessary (essential). Strictly necessary cookies make our Website work, they are essential for the Website to perform its basic functions.  

  • Performance.  Also known as “statistics cookies”, and including analytics cookies, performance cookies collect information about how you use a website, like which pages you visited and which links you clicked on. None of this information can be used to identify you. Their sole purpose is to improve website functions. This includes cookies from third-party analytics services as long as the cookies are for the exclusive use of the owner of the website visited. 

  • Functionality.  Also known as “preferences” cookies, these cookies allow a website to remember choices you have made in the past, like what language you prefer.  They are used to enhance the user experience of the website but are non-essential to their use, but without these cookies, certain functionality may become unavailable.

  • Marketing.  These cookies track your online activity to help advertisers deliver more relevant advertising or to limit how many times you see an ad. These cookies can share that information with other organizations or advertisers. These are persistent cookies and almost always of third-party provenance. 

Web Beacons.   Pages in our Applications and emails will contain small electronic files known as web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags and single-pixel gifs).  Web beacons differ from cookies in that the information is not stored on your hard drive, but invisibly embedded on web pages or in email.  Web beacons permit us to track online movements of web users, for example: to count users who have visited those pages or opened an e-mail and for other related website statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain website content and verifying system and server integrity).  This enables Cvent to provide a website experience more tailored to our users’ preferences and interests.  


More about Marketing Cookies.  We use information collected from our venue sourcing Customers to enable us to display advertisements from our Hospitality Cloud Customers to their target audience of users through our network or our advertising service providers.  As one example, meeting space providers purchase advertisements that are presented selectively through the Cvent Supplier Network to meeting planners who have previously awarded a minimum volume of meetings business to that provider or to competing venues in the target metropolitan area.  Even though we do not disclose personal data for these purposes, if the venue sourcing user clicks on or otherwise interacts with an advertisement, the advertising Hospitality Cloud Customer assumes that the venue sourcing user meets its target criteria. While we and our Hospitality Cloud Customers leverage this technology to advertise to Customers, we never use our Customer's information to advertise to Customer Data Subjects.  We also use third parties (such as LinkedIn, Google, Facebook, YouTube) to serve advertisements that may be of interest to you on other websites.   

More about Performance Cookies.  We use third party analytics providers, including Google, Adobe, Mixpanel, Mouseflow and others, to collect information about the usage of our Applications and Websites to enable us to improve how they work.  The information allows us to see the overall patterns of usage on the Applications, helps us record any difficulties you have with the Applications, shows us whether our advertising is effective or not, and allows us to use responses to advertisements to optimize ad performance.  Google Analytics, Adobe and Mixpanel use cookies and other similar technologies to collect information about the usage of our Applications and to report website trends to us, without storing any personal data on external third-party analytics provider platforms.  


Cookie Controls: If you are visiting our Website from the EEA, UK or Switzerland, then we do not set non-essential cookies unless you accept all cookies on the “cookie banner” that launches when you land on our Website.

You can choose not to allow some types of cookies using the “Cookie Settings” link below.  Strictly necessary cookies cannot be disabled. 



Do Not Track: Some browsers include a “Do Not Track” (DNT) setting that can send a signal to the websites you visit indicating you do not wish to be tracked.  We do not respond to browser ‘do not track’ signals, as we await for a uniform standard put forth by regulators or the privacy industry.  

Global Privacy Control: Some browsers and browser extensions support the Global Privacy Control (“GPC”) that can send a signal to the websites you visit indicating your choice to opt-out from certain types of data processing, including data sales. If your browser supports it, you can turn on the Global Privacy Control to opt-out of the “sale” or “sharing” of your personal information. 


To facilitate our business practices and delivery of our services, personal data may be collected, accessed from, transferred to or stored in the United States or in other countries where we operate, including countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA), Switzerland, and UK. Personal data may be accessed by Cvent personnel providing services in any country where we have facilities, or in which we engage third party service providers (processors or subprocessors), including India, Australia and Singapore. In instances where we transfer personal data outside the European Economic Area, we implement safeguards to ensure an adequate level of data protection, including the use of Standard Contract Clauses as approved by the European Commission, or taking other measures to ensure an adequate level of data protection under EU law. For cross-border data transfers from the EEA or UK, Cvent will implement an appropriate data transfer solution in the form of the Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission (EU SCCs) or UK authority (UK SCCs).  Accordingly, Cvent has made available a data processing addendum containing the EU SCCs and UK SCCs for its Customers here. Where you are a customer that has signed a data processing addendum with Cvent containing transfer provisions based on Cvent’s Privacy Shield certification, we encourage Customers to sign and return our Amendment to Data Processing Agreement


Cvent's privacy practices, described in this Privacy Policy, comply with the APEC Cross Border Privacy Rules System. The APEC CBPR system provides a framework for organizations to ensure protection of personal information transferred among participating APEC economies. More information about the APEC framework can be found here

Cvent's privacy practices, described in this Privacy Policy, comply with the APEC Privacy Recognition for Processors (PRP) system.  The APEC PRP system provides a framework for organizations to ensure protection of personal information transferred among participating APEC economies.  More information about the APEC PRP framework can be found here


We use a variety of organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect personal data within our organization.  We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once it is received. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.  If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you might have with us has been compromised), please immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us in accordance with the " How do you contact Cvent or Cvent's Data Protection Officer?" section below.
