DearMYRTLE Webinar events

  • Our virtual meet & webinar service provider aggregates email addresses in order to send individual attendee registration confirmation & reminder emails with the URL for each to join as an attendee or panelist. See Zoom’s Official Statement: EU GDPR Compliance Statement.
  • Webinar panelists arrive in the webinar with the name provided at registration as an automatic “lower third” label that shows up when they are in the spotlight video.
  • Attendees arrive in the webinar with the name provided at registration and any comments posted by an attendee are time-stamped and prefixed with that same name.
  • I personally collect an emergency street address, alternate contact name and phone number for all panelists in a dedicated study group, such as AmericaGen. This info will only be used in case of emergency where a panelist takes ill while online with us and we wish to call for help.
  • When DearMYRTLE gives away gift cards, genealogy books, or software, the winner provides an email with identifying information so the item can be received via return email or US/Canada postal service.
