Booking Tickets on Eventbrite

Eventbrite terms and conditions

Eventbrite Privacy Policy

At the time of booking all users of Eventbrite must confirm that they accept the Eventbrite terms and conditions and Privacy Policy. Additionally, they must agree to their details being shared with the Event Organiser and venuw where the event is being held (Bristol and Bath Cultural Destinations and corresponding venue). Customers who do not agree to the terms are advised not to proceed with their booking. If you wish to attend one of our events but do not wish to use Eventbrite to book a place, please contact us.
When you book tickets on Eventbrite, we ask that you provide your name, postcode and email address for all bookings. A few events may ask for your address if tickets are to be posted and both Bristol and Bath Cultural Destinations and the venue in question do not hold your postal address after the event.

We also use the information to manage the event or activity for which you have booked tickets (we never take financial transactions so no bank details are required), e.g. to produce an attendance list, to email to give you important information about the events you have booked or to tell you about any changes.

We also use this information for internal analysis, e.g. to examine our audience development and reach. This statistical data is anonymised and is stored securely in electronic format only.

Your data is always held securely. Access to customer information is strictly controlled and the Eventbrite account can only be accessed by people who need to do their job – it is only made visible to members of staff who have a reason to work with it.

The only data we will retain anonymised statistical data.

Booking tickets through Venue Box Offices

Some Bristol and Bath Cultural Destinations events are hosted at venues with their own designated box offices.
This will be made clear at time of booking.
The transaction is with that venue/company and we ask you to review their terms and conditions before booking as we do not accept responsibility or liability for their policies.

Audience Surveys

We use Survey Monkey, a third-party service, to collect audience data that is required by our funders.
Completing a survey is optional. A secure link to a survey (over a SSL encrypted connection) is included in an message to Eventbrite bookers after an event. This is sent through Eventbrite so that bookers email addresses are not downloaded and remain secure.
In the message we explain the reason for the survey, that responses are collected anonymously and we do not track IP addresses.
We also refer to Survey Monkey’s Privacy Policy.
All questions within the survey are optional.

Sharing of Your Information

We do not sell your information. We do not share the information that is provided to us except:

With third party service providers, such as hosting providers or an email service provider, who provide services to us so that we are able to fulfil our obligations to you or, where we are able to send you marketing information, to do so.
If we have a legal obligation to disclose your information (for example, if a court orders us to).
To opt out of marketing or other communications from another organisation, please get in touch with them directly. They should always provide instructions for opting out in any marketing or other communications you receive.
If we run an event in partnership with another named organisation (e.g. a venue) we will also share information to enable it to report to its funders and inform its audience development strategy. Any data shared for these purposes will be in an anonymised and aggregated form.
If another company buys our company, or if we go insolvent, or if we merge with another company, the company that receives your information will protect the information in the same way we do. If we transfer our obligations under our terms of use to another company, this may mean that we need to transfer your personal data to that company. We will contact you to let you know if we plan to do this. If you are unhappy with the transfer you may contact us to end your contract with us within 30 days and if you do so, we will not transfer your data to that company.
