Camp Necon will not share, rent, or sell any attendee’s personal information (i.e. their mailing address, email address, phone number, etc.), collected by registering online or via the mail, with any third parties. Moreover, our online registration form uses PayPal to process transactions and therefore does not collect credit card numbers; to quote PayPal’s own security page, “PayPal helps keep your transactions secure by not sharing your full financial information with sellers.” (https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/paypal-safety-and-security)
The saying “What happens at Necon stays at Necon” actually predates the similar Las Vegas ad campaign slogan. Of course, that means it also predates the age of smart phones and social media. As it is impossible for us to police the online activity of our attendees, Camp Necon makes no assurances and accepts no responsibility whatsoever should your name and / or image be posted online in reference to the convention.
The Camp Necon Committee is happy to omit any attendee’s name from our online Campers List should they prefer not to be listed. If you do not want your name on this website, please simply contact us and request that it not be posted.
