Tap In, Tap Out
There’s one last thing you should know about your NYCC-ID Badge. You’re going to have to tap your Badge with a member of the NYCC-ID Patrol (they’re those crew members you will see holding scanners at all the entrances and exits at the show). When you enter the building, you MUST tap your NYCC-ID Badge. When you exit the building, you MUST tap it again. You MUST tap your NYCC-ID Badge every time you enter or exit the building or the whole space time continuum will get screwed up and nobody wants that to happen!
Here’s the legal stuff we have to tell you… Your NYCC-ID Badge will be directly associated with you based on the personal information you provide during the activation process. That data collected through RFID technology includes, for instance, how many Fans enter NYCC, the date and time of their visit, the number of times they enter and exit and which entrances or exits they use. This information may be used for internal purposes to help make NYCC a better experience for everyone. We may use the information you provide during the registration process to contact you in the future to tell you about other events we believe will be of interest to you. Any such email communications will include an option to “unsubscribe” from receiving future emails.
