Launch Your Idea Into a Business in Just 1 Weekend

Startup Business Boot Camp, Inc. ("SBBC, we, us or our") whose primary service is to conduct live events at venues in various cities around the United States, typically over 1 weekend where participants gain critical knowledge on starting a business and if are so inclined, (and depending on the exact type of business concept), can even incorporate their new company and launch it to the point where they are positioned to receive their first lead or customer even before the event is completed, hereinafter referred to as the “Services or our Events”.

Startup Business Boot Camp, Inc. is the sole owner of the information collected on our Web site: StartupBusinessBootCamp.com. Startup Business Boot Camp collects personally identifiable information from our users at several different points on our Web site.

We are committed to protecting the privacy and security of the information we may gather about you, and pledge to use that information carefully and sensibly.

All information you provide to SBBC via our Web site, by email, telephone, fax, at our events or otherwise in connection with our Services, will be transmitted to, held and processed by us as described in this Privacy Policy. Startup Business Boot Camp, Inc. is a company incorporated in the United States of America. Accordingly, information submitted by you to us will be transmitted to, held and processed in the USA.

This Privacy Policy describes our practices concerning your privacy. By accepting our Terms of Service Agreement, using the StartupBusinessBootCamp.com Web site, attending one of our events, or otherwise interacting with Us by telephone, email or other means, you are consenting to our practices, including the use and disclosure of any personally identifiable information you have shared with us, as described in this Privacy Policy.

ANTI-SPAM POLICY

Startup Business Boot Camp is 100% opposed to unsolicited commercial email ("spam"). We do not intentionally send emails to anyone without their permission and we do not sell or provide email addresses to any third party. If you receive any unsolicited emails from spammers, please be assured that Startup Business Boot Camp did not intentionally provide your email address to such parties.

This does not mean that we can prevent spam from happening on the Internet. Unfortunately, spammers obtain email addresses in any number of ways. Please be assured that at Startup Business Boot Camp we hate spam as much as you do.

If you believe that you have gotten unsolicited email from us, contact us and we will investigate. Please be assured that we strive not to contact anyone without permission, and if you prefer not to receive any further communications from us, just follow the instructions within the email message you received or tell us and we will endeavor to make sure you no longer receive emails from us.

INFORMATION COLLECTION & USE INCLUDING COMMUNICATIONS FROM OUR SITE

Free Startup Business eNewsletter & Boot Camp Event Notifications
In order to provide information we feel is useful to aspiring entrepreneurs and people interested in attending our live events, we request minimal contact information and location information so we  may effectively deliver event notifications that are local and relevant to You.

We request your email address which is required, and may also request your first name, phone number and/or cell phone.

We use this information to contact you about our Services which you have expressed an interest in. We may contact you via email, SMS text messages (if you opt in) and even through live or automated telephone notifications. In all cases, we provide convenient opt-out instructions if for any reason you choose to no longer receive our email, text or phone notifications or eNewsletter.

Introductory Seminar Registration
In some of the cities where we hold workshops, we also offer seminars which may be free or at a very low admission price. The goal of these seminars is to provide attendees with useful, actionable information to assist them in their business and entrepreneurial endeavors as well as introduce them to the full value of our weekend workshops. Often times, these seminars are sponsored by organizations such as the local Chamber of Commerce, SCORE, the SBA and other groups who may also assist Us in promoting these seminars to the local community. By registering for one of our free or low cost seminars, You may also receive emails from one or more of our event sponsors in addition to followup emails from Us. In all cases, You may opt-out of receiving these communications at any time by taking the action at the bottom of any email that you receive. Additionally, we also announce to the attendees either during check-in or sometime during the event that You may receive emails from our sponsors and offer an opt-out option at that time (should the event be sponsored).

Event Registration
In order to attend one of our Events, you must first complete the registration including remitting payment.  During registration you are required to provide Us with contact information (such as your name, email address, telephone number(s) and billing address) and financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date and CVV). We use this information for billing purposes.  If we have trouble processing your transaction, we will use this information to contact you. We do not store any billing-related information on our servers.

You also have the option to provide idea/business concept information to us; we encourage you to submit this information so we can provide you a more personalized experience prior to, and during our events. 

When you register for an event, you typically will receive a confirmation email from us with specific event details such as directions to the event as well as a payment receipt from our payment processor. Because we want to ensure you maximize your investment in our event, we will remind you of the upcoming event you registered for via email, SMS text messages (if applicable and only if you opt in) and even through live or automated telephone notifications.

Event Wait List Registration
Since many of our Events fill to capacity well in advance of the event date and since we do not accept registrations at the door, prospective attendees are usually provided the option to sign up on the Waiting List in case someone needs to reschedule their attendance to another date. When a spot opens up, we will attempt to contact everyone on the Waiting List for that event, typically in order of a "first come-first contacted" basis. If the event you are interested in is full, we highly encourage you to sign up for the Waiting List immediately. You are under no obligation to attend when you are on the Waiting List but the sooner you sign up for it, the more likely you are to be offered the opportunity to attend should a seat become available. If you are on the Wait List, we will contact you via email, SMS text messages (if applicable and only if you opt in) and even through live or automated telephone notifications. Although we try to allow for an hour or two to elapse before calling the next person in line on the Wait List, we cannot guarantee this especially when the Event date is near. If you receive a message from us regarding your Wait List interest, please contact us as soon as possible even if you cannot attend so we may offer the spot to the next person in line.

Customer Service
We will communicate with you in response to your inquiries, to provide the services you request, and to notify you of our events. We will communicate with you by email, text message (if applicable and only if you specifically opt-in) or by telephone (typically live, but telephone communication may be automated).

Surveys or Contests
Because we are very interested in improving our events and delivering exceptional value to our attendees, we may also contact you after you attend one of our events to solicit feedback or complete a satisfaction survey. This contact may occur immediately following an event or even several weeks or more after an event.

We may use a third party service provider to conduct these surveys or contests; that company is prohibited from using our users' personally identifiable information for any other purpose. We will not share the personally identifiable information you provide through a contest or survey with other third parties.

Tell-A-Friend
If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend, spouse or prospective business partner about our site and our start a business in 1 weekend events, we will ask you for your friend's name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the site.
