In some cases we may collect your credit card information (e.g., your credit card number and expiration date, billing address, etc.), some of which may constitute Personal Data, to secure certain payments. In addition, if you use our payment processing services, we will collect financial information from you (e.g., your bank account information or an address to send cheques) as necessary to facilitate payments and information required for tax purposes (e.g., your taxpayer identification number). We may also collect or receive Personal Data from third party sources, such as third party websites, your bank, our payment processing partners and credit reporting agencies.

4.5. Organiser Emails
We allow Organisers to use our email tools to contact Attendees for their current and past events, so you may receive emails from our system that originate with such Organisers. If you have registered for an event on the Services, your email is available to that Organiser. However, Organisers may also import the emails they have from external sources and send communications through the Services to those emails and we will deliver those communications to those emails. See “Opt Out from Electronic Communications” below on how to opt out of these communications.

10. Your Choices
You have several choices available when it comes to your Personal Data:
10.1. Limit the Personal Data You Provide
You can browse the Services without providing any Personal Data (other than Automatic Data to the extent it is considered Personal Data under applicable laws) or with limiting the Personal Data you provide. If you choose not to provide any Personal Data or limit the Personal Data you provide, you may not be able to use certain functionality of the Services. For instance, in order to open an account, or buy or sell tickets, your name and email address will be required.
10.2. Opt Out from Electronic Communications
(a) Ticksi Marketing Communications
Ticksi may send you electronic communications marketing or advertising the Services themselves or events on the Services, to the extent you have registered for the Services or purchased a ticket and/or registration to an event listed on the Services. You can “opt out” of receiving these electronic communications by clicking on the “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of any such electronic communication. In addition, you may also manage your email preferences at any time by logging in (or signing up and then logging in), clicking on “Edit Account” and then “Future Communications.”
(b) Organiser Initiated Communications
Organisers may use our email tools to send electronic communications to those on their email subscription lists, including Attendees who have registered for their events on the Services in the past. Although these electronic communications are sent through our system, Ticksi does not determine the content or the recipients of these electronic communications. Organisers are required to use our email tools only in accordance with all applicable laws. Ticksi provides an “Unsubscribe” link on each of these emails, which allows recipients to “opt out” of electronic communications from the particular Organiser.
(c) Social Notifications
If you connect your Facebook account or sign up for other social media integrations whose product features include social notifications (i.e., updates on what your friends are doing on the Services), you will receive these social notifications. You can manage these social notifications by toggling your social settings to private or disconnecting such integration.
(d) Transactional or Responsive Communications
Certain electronic communications from Ticksi are responsive to your requests. For instance, if you are an Attendee, we must email you your ticket or registration when you purchase such ticket or registration. As a further example, if you email our customer support department, we will return your email. Notwithstanding any unsubscribe election that you have made, you will still receive these emails. You can stop receiving these types of emails only by contacting us. By electing to stop receiving all electronic communications from us or through our system you will no longer receive any updates on events you have created (including payout issues) or on events you are registered to attend (including emails with your tickets). We do not recommend that you do this unless you plan to no longer use the Services, are not currently registered for an event, are not currently organising an event and will have no need to receive further communications from us or through our system.

16.2. Incorporation By Reference
17. What are cookies, pixel tags (AKA clear GIFs or web beacons), local shared objects, and web storage?
A cookie is a piece of information that is placed on your web browser when you access and/or use the Services that stores text and which can later be read back by the Services or third parties. Cookies are used to recognize your browser and you as a unique User.
17.2. Pixel Tags (aka Clear GIFs or Web Beacons)
A pixel tag is a tiny invisible tag or graphic placed on certain parts of the Services or other websites, in emails or in certain other downloadable content, but not on your computer, mobile device or browser, except to the extent that you download the content that contains such tags.
17.3. Local Shared Objects (aka Flash Cookies)
A local shared object is similar to a cookie, except it is stored on your computer or mobile device, instead of your browser, and it can store more than just text. The methods for controlling local shared objects are different than the methods for controlling cookies (as discussed below).
18. How can I manage these technologies?
Cookies may be session cookies (i.e., last only for one browser session) or persistent cookies (i.e., continue on your browser until they are affirmatively deleted). You can manage cookies through your web browser's option settings and through those settings you may be able (a) to receive notifications when you are receiving new cookies; (b) to disable cookies; or (c) to delete cookies. Please refer to your web browser's help section for information on how to do this.
18.2. Pixel Tags
Pixel tags do not store information on your computer, mobile device or browser (although they are occasionally downloaded to your computer if contained in an email or other downloadable content) so cannot be managed by you except by deleting the content in which the tag is contained.
18.3. Local Shared Objects.
Local shared objects are stored on your computer or mobile device. To learn how to manage privacy and storage settings for local shared objects, click here.
18.4. Web Storage
Web Storage, or HTML5 Local Storage, is an industry-standard data storage technology that is implemented by internet browser providers. Refer to your browser's help contents for procedures on how to manage settings for Web Storage.
19. What does Ticksi use these technologies for?
19.1. Essential (strictly necessary).
We use these technologies to monitor our Services and to analyse how you use our Services. For example, we may place cookies that allow us (a) to measure the time of your requests to our servers and our responses; (b) to A/B test new features; (c) to record statistics about site usage; (d) to track your activities on the Services; and (e) to track the places from which you come to the Services.
We may also use third party cookies to collect information about visitor behaviour on our Services for these Performance/Analytics purposes. As an example, we use Google Analytics and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting. You can manage your opt-outs for this third party service provider here:
We use these technologies to allow us to provide certain functionality on the Services and to remember your preferences. For instance, when you click the "remember me" box on our log in page we place a persistent cookie on your browser that allows our Services to pre-populate your username when you return. Other examples include remembering your preferences (such as language and location preferences), preventing web application vulnerabilities, allowing for Facebook Connect and other third party integrations and in connection with providing search results.
19.4. Advertising (including behavioural/interest based advertising).
We use these technologies to deliver advertisements to you both on and off the Services. By using these technologies we hope to better tailor these advertisements to your interests. Sometimes this is called online behavioural, interest based or retargeted advertising. As of the date hereof, we use technologies from Adroll, Chango, Google, Media Math, Perfect Audience, Quantcast, Retargeter and Yahoo! for such purposes. Many of these vendors participate in voluntary frameworks that allow you to opt-out of such advertising. You can manage your opt-outs for those third party service providers who participate in such opt-out frameworks at the following websites depending on your location:
In addition, not every one of these third party service providers may participate at all times in every voluntary framework, so we have included links to their individual opt out frameworks so you can control your preferences directly with each such third party service provider:
20. Does anybody else use these technologies on your services?
Most of the cookies and other technologies described above on our Services are set by us (aka first party cookies) or are used in connection with the Services and set by third party service providers at our direction ("Third Party Cookies"). We may use Third Party Cookies with respect to each of the uses set forth above. For example, we use technologies from Google Analytics, Omniture and Mixpanel, among others, to measure performance/analytics and technologies from Facebook to provide Facebook Connect functionality. Occasionally, an Organiser may use similar technologies on their event pages for one of the purposes set forth above.
