WHO WE SHARE THIS INFORMATION WITH:

Primarily, your personally identifiable information is shared with the Promoter and/or the Venue of the event you are booking tickets to or entering competitions for.

Our agreements with them protect the information that we collect from any use by them that we have not authorised. They have agreed to only contact you with information and offers if you have given express consent to do so. This consent occurs at the time of booking tickets when we ask if you would like to receive information or offers from the Promoter or Venue. You may accept or refuse this offer and also have the opportunity to opt out of their communications at any time in the future.

In addition, after completing an order, you may occasionally be invited to enter a prize draw or receive a special offer in return for providing your contact details to select third-party New Zealand companies of interest. This option can easily be skipped at your discretion. See ‘Opting In and Opting Out’ for more information below.

Please note that aggregated data (not your personally identifiable information) may be shared with other third parties such as our Promoters or business partners for the purposes of research. Your personally identifiable information will only be shared with other third parties if we believe in good faith that we are required to do so by law.
