Collection and Use of Information

On occasion we ask for personal data on this Website. The information is used to fulfill requests you've made of us, such as e-mail updates and brochures by mail or to use special features of the site, such as image downloads, b-roll requests and RFP submissions. By voluntarily providing personal information, you are consenting to the collection and use of your personal information in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy. 

Similarly, if you have made public posts from your social media accounts that include our specialized hashtags (e.g., #SeeFortWorth), we may collect and use the information in those posts. We may also track the keywords that are entered into our search engines to measure interest in specific topics.

Except as set forth in this Privacy Policy, we will not disclose or sell to any third party any information that we collect from you, including Personal Information. We may, however, use Personal Information we collect for our internal business purposes that include, but are not limited to, improving the functions on our Website and communicating with you about Fort Worth, other offerings that we believe may be of interest to you, changes to this Privacy Policy, and other topics related to Fort Worth. You will always be permitted to opt-out of receiving such communications from us in the email(s) or other communications you receive.

When you interact with our Website, we may also collect limited non-personally identifying information that the browser you use makes available automatically. This information, or “cookie,” may include the internet address of the computer or network you used to access our Website, the date, time, and page(s) you visited on our Website, the browser and operating system you used, and the referring webpage. The use of cookies is a standard practice among internet websites and most internet web browsers may be customized to reject cookies, to only accept or reject cookies by user intervention, or to delete cookies. However, some features of the Website may not function properly without cookies.

Disclosure of Information

We may disclose your information, including non-public personal information, in special cases when we have a good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to legal requirements or comply with the legal process such as, but not limited to, situations when we are required to do so by federal, state or local laws and regulations or when we receive a subpoena or are ordered by a court to do so; (b) protect and defend our rights; or (c) act to protect the interests of our users or others. Additionally, we may, without notice to you, provide aggregate statistics about visitors to the Website(s), such as volume, traffic patterns and related site information to reputable third-party vendors, but these statistics will include no personal information.

Meeting and Tour Planners

Information provided by meeting planners and other travel professionals is reviewed by the Visit Fort Worth staff to follow up on requests and develop future business. Events booked in Fort Worth are printed in the Visit Fort Worth's Convention Calendar unless that event is specifically marked confidential. If a meeting is confidential it is our policy not to list it on any distributed information. The FWCVB also uses provided information for internal purposes such as e-mail contact.

Security of Information

We exercise reasonable care to protect your non-public personal information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. So while we strive to protect your non-public personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us or receive from us. This is especially true for information you transmit to us via e-mail. We have no way of protecting that information until it reaches us. Once we receive your transmission, we maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information.
