There are situations in which we ask you to give us information about yourself. This information includes things like your name, address, e-mail address, and phone number. We collect, hold and use your personal information only where you have given us your permission to do so. The types of purposes for which we collect information about individuals include the following:
allowing people to share their experiences
managing our competitions and contacting the winners
personalising or improving the way Festivals Zone content is presented to you online
We may also collect information about individuals involved in businesses, and this is mainly for:
preparing listings and reviews in our publications
sending information about Festivals Zone and our products to our media and other industry contacts
distributing our products to distributors and retailers.
If you work for us (as an employee or under contract) we keep information about you in the context of that relationship. There are some differences in how we deal with that type of personal information because of the relationship, plus some housekeeping stuff. If you are in this group and want further information on how we deal with information about you, please contact your Human Resources manager or the person who manages your relationship with us.
One of the best things about the Festivals Zone community is that everyone is keen to share their views and experiences with others. We welcome your contributions, but remember, what's 'gossip' to you may deserve 'privacy' in someone else's eyes. So please respect the privacy of others. If you want to include information about yourself we'll take it that you understand how our services work and are happy for that information to be shared. If you are unhappy that personal information about you has been included in one of our publications or on one of our bulletin boards, please let us know. Where reasonable and possible we will remove that information at the next practical opportunity - where it has been included in one of our publications that may be the next reprint or next edition.
The security of your personal information is important. Festivals Zone has in place proper security measures to protect your personal information.
We may share personal information amongst companies in the Festivals Zone family. This may involve transferring your data from one country to another. By giving us personal information through the Festivals Zone website or communicating with us, you acknowledge and agree to our use of your data on a global basis, but if you have any concerns about this please let us know.
You generally have a right to access the personal information Festivals Zone holds about you (although there are exceptions). For some Festivals Zone services you can access your registration and keep your personal information up to date online. To access, correct, or update your other personal information, or if you have any questions about personal information, please contact us by email.
However, for the time being the information handling activities of the Festivals Zone Group are governed by privacy laws throughout the world.
