B.CODE is proposed to be a convention for fostering and encouraging digital entrepreneurship. CODE is proposed to be organised in New Delhi in June 2023.

C.To this end, EMB has developed the CODE application and website (together, the “CODE Platform”). Your use of the CODE Platform is subject to your compliance with the Terms of Use and this Privacy Policy (this “Policy”).

D.EMB may change this Policy at any time. By continuing to access or use the CODE Platform, you accept any changes or revisions to this Policy.


1. Information Available on the CODE Platform

1.1.EMB provides information regarding the CODE event on the CODE Platform. This information pertains to, without limitation, timings of the event, announcements in regard to the event, as well as other information either publicly available or provided by you and other users of the CODE Platform.

1.2.While EMB takes every effort to ensure accuracy of information on the CODE Platform, EMB cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information provided on the CODE Platform by its users.

2.Opt-in/out Policy for the Attendee List on the CODE Platform

2.1.EMB supports the following policy on whether an attendee is listed in the event attendee list on the CODE Platform:

·  Attendees (except some VIPs selected by EMB) are listed in the attendee list on the CODE Platform to help foster pre-event networking. If a user does not want his/ her name and profile to be listed and viewed by other attendees, he/ she needs to explicitly opt out by changing the visibility setting on the Settings menu to be “invisible”.

·  Once an attendee signs in to the CODE Platform, his/ her name will be listed in the attendee list of this event to facilitate networking. They can still become invisible by changing the visibility setting on the Settings menu. If an attendee never signs in to the CODE Platform, his/ her name is not listed.

·  Once an attendee signs in to the CODE Platform, he/ she is explicitly asked whether he/ she wants to be listed in the attendee list for other attendees to network with him/ her. Based on the answer, his/ her initial visibility status will be set to “visible” or “invisible”, and he/ she can still switch between the two by changing it on the Settings menu. If an attendee never signs in to the CODE Platform, his/ her name is not listed.

2.2.However, please note that regardless of opt in/out policy, attendees’ contact information (e.g. emails, phone numbers) is not disclosed to other attendees unless users explicitly permit EMB so to do.

Third parties may serve cookies through the CODE Platform, for analytics and other purposes such as error diagnosis.

The parties that set these third-party cookies can use them to recognise your device both when it visits the CODE Platform and also when it visits certain other, unaffiliated websites.
