We care about being transparent with you about what information we collect when you choose our events and platform and how we use that information. It’s important to us that we give you as much choice and control over your information as we can.
Here, we explain the ways we collect and use your information when you browse or engage with our Platform, purchase tickets to the events that we act as ticketing agents for. We also explain the different rights you have over your information.
In this Privacy and Cookies Statement, when we refer to “you” and “your” we mean you, the person using the Platform or attending an Event or otherwise interacting with us.
Please refer to the Event’s Terms and Conditions to check the Event’s age policy. If the Events you are attending or are interested in allow people under the age of 18 to attend (with an accompanying adult) and you yourself are under 18, you must have the permission of your parent or legal guardian (“Your Adult”) to use our Platform and only Your Adult will be able to purchase tickets for the Event.

Information we may collect about you
Information we collect from you directly
If you register for one of our newsletters or request any advance information about our Events or services we will collect your name and contact details.
If you make a purchase with us (whether for an Event ticket, Event Ballot or any other goods and/or services) we’ll collect any information necessary to provide you with your purchase. For example: we’ll typically ask for your name, age, email address, account password, date of birth, and payment details so we can process your Event ticket purchase and deliver your ticket to you. We may also request your work information to validate your eligibility for this service; we’ll collect information about any particular requirements you may have in order to gain access to an Event: this may mean providing us with information about your physical health or similarly sensitive information; if there are circumstances where we need to verify your age for entry to an Event or for fraud prevention and detection, we will ask for proof of identity and age (such as a driver’s license or passport); and we may (if applicable), collect additional information specifically relevant to the goods and/or services that you are purchasing. For example: if you buy a Park & Ride ticket we might ask for your vehicle registration number to manage vehicles at our Events, or if you choose a glamping experience we might need your credit card details for your damage deposit.
Promotions and Surveys
Every now and again, we might invite you to participate in competitions, promotions or surveys. We’ll collect information so you can participate in these and deliver the prize if you win: this will include details such as your name, age and email address and any other information you provide in connection with your promotion entry and/or survey response.

Information we get from third parties
Other ticket agents and service providers

We might also use third-party companies to manage our payment systems or Platform, they may collect information directly from you on our behalf.
