Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Events Made Easy (EME) Plugin

EME collects data based on the RSVP (Please Reply) and member forms and optionally extra info in the backend for people. These are configured by Refuge In Dhamma and we only collect information that is necessary for us to identify the people who have signed up (First & Last names and/or country residing in) and to communicate with them (Mobile number and/or email).

The data export will not show the info stored by RSVP forms if that info was unique to that event, however upon deletion all that data will be removed too.

EME optionally uses a cookie to store the client date and time in order to adjust for client/server time differences when showing event dates and times.
