Information collection & Why?
The operator of the site requests information from users when they subscribe to the website. A user must provide their name and e-mail address in order for the operator to send the subscriber updates. This information is used for the purpose of sending the subscriber newsletters & information regarding upcoming events. I also collect non identifiable data such as browser information in order for me to see my website statistics.
These cookies and the information they collect help improve this site for yourself and future visitors by monitoring traffic of users and success of particular content. You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings.
Communications from the site – newsletter and updates
The operator will send out weekly newsletters and an e-mail to announce event dates to those who have subscribed to the website. The operator will ask for contact information (e-mail and name). This information is only used by the owner of the site for marketing & event related products and services. Users are given the option to opt-out of these e-mails.
Sharing aggregate information
We may share aggregated demographic information with sponsors. The information is not linked to any personally identifiable information.
All of users’ information, including any sensitive information, is restricted and for office use only in relation with the purpose of marketing or managing event related business or services.
I never ask for credit card numbers or payment details. Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of people who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.
Embedded content from other websites
Third Party Plug Ins
This site uses Google Analytics to collect information such as details of traffic and visitor behaviour patterns. I also occasionally check my stats on Wix. You can opt out by using the Google Analytics Opt Out Browser add on. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Do I share data?
I do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your Personally Identifiable Information unless required to do so by law or for giveaways where I collaborate with a brand. An example of this is choosing a winner and me needing to pass on the winner information to the brand in order for you to claim your prize. By entering any giveaway or entering such information, you are agreeing to the terms therefore if you aren’t happy with this don’t enter giveaways. If a giveaway is collaborated with a brand I will clearly state this.
What rights you have over your data
If you have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data I hold about you, including any data you have provided to me. You can also request that I erase any personal data I hold about you. This does not include any data I’m obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Extra security information:
This website is secured by SSL. This website is protected by an online firewall which blocks hacking attempts and security breaches. If there is a breach or security issue I’m emailed immediately by my security provider. If there is a breach I will assess the risk to your personal data and report any significant risks to the correct authorities if necessary.
Correcting / updating / deleting / deactivating personal information
If a user’s personally identifiable information changes (such as e-mail), or if a user no longer desires such services or no longer wants to be contacted in relation to the events or services offered they can contact the operator to be removed from the mailing list.
