    Marketing

    We strive to provide you with choices regarding certain personal data uses, particularly around marketing and advertising. We hope that you will be happy for us to send you news and promotional offers but you are free to change your mind at any time. We may use your personal data to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you.

You may receive marketing communications from us if you have given us your contact details when buying a ticket to our events and have not opted out. If you sign up to our mailing list, we will ask for your consent to receive marketing from us.

    Promotional offers from us

    We may use your Identity, Contact, Technical, Usage and Profile Data to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which products, services and offers may be relevant for you (we call this marketing).

    You will receive marketing communications from us if you have requested information from us or purchased goods or services from us and you have not opted out of receiving that marketing. Third-party marketing

    We may share your data from time to time with carefully selected third parties where it is in our legitimate interest and theirs to do so. However, these third parties will have no right to send your direct marketing communications by email or text message without your consent.

  • SHARING YOUR PERSONAL DATA
  • We use a number of third party processors to provide and monitor our services and to comply with our legal obligations.

    We have data sharing agreements in place which require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers who process data on our behalf to use your personal data for their own purposes. We only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

    The processors we use are based in the EU or in the US where there are similar protections for personal data. For further details about the safeguards we put in place when transferring your data outside of the EU, please see International Transfers.

    Below we have set out the types of organisations we share your data with:

    • Third party event licensors and ticketing agents;
  • Suppliers involved in the set-up and take down of our events;
  • Online survey providers and competition administrators;
  • CRM and direct marketing providers;
  • Promotion network providers;
  • Providers of system integration and IT support;
  • Providers of services for monitoring website performance, detecting and understanding broken customer journeys, detecting malicious log-on attempts and defending against attempted denial of service attacks;
  • We may share personal data with the relevant authorities and organisations for the prevention and detection of crime or if required to do so by law;

    We may also share your data with regulators, accreditation bodies and external auditors.

    We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

  • INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS
  • From time to time we may use data processors who process your personal data outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”). In these cases, we will always ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to your data by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

  • We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission.
  • Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved for use in the UK which give personal data the same protection it has in the UK. Please contact the DPO if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the EEA.

  • DATA SECURITY
  • We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

    We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so. If you are concerned about a potential breach of your data, please contact the DPO.

  • DATA RETENTION
  • How long will we use your personal data for?

    We will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.

    To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.

    In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data: see [Request erasure] below for further information.

    In some circumstances we will anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

  • YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
  • Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. Please click on the links below to find out more about these rights:

  • Request access to your personal data.
  • This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it. This is commonly known as a "data subject access request".

  • Request correction of your personal data.
  • This enables you to request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us. Request erasure of your personal data.
  • This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.

  • Object to processing of your personal data.
  • Where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.

  • Request restriction of processing your personal data.
  • This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios:

    • if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy;
  • where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it;
  • where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or
  • you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it. Request transfer of your personal data.
  • We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

  • Right to withdraw consent.
  • Where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent. Requesting access to your personal data held by us is known as making “a data subject access request”. If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact the DPO.

    No fee usually required

    You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

    What we may need from you

    We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

    Time limit to respond

    We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
