When you visit our events or sites may need to collect some personal information about yourself.

Read more about what we collect about you and your choices and rights.


INTRODUCTION

Festival Republic Limited (“we“, “us” or “our“) has published this Visitor Privacy Notice (“Notice”) to describe how we handle personal information that we process about Visitors to our events and/or venues (collectively referred to as “you”). This Notice does not apply to fans who attend our events or staff members who are directly employed by us.

The term “Visitors” includes, but is not limited to, press & media, artists & their entourage, working personnel not directly employed by us (such as agency workers or staff of our onsite sponsors and partners), emergency services staff, and other individuals that may need to be onsite.


CATEGORIES OF PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT

During your attendance onsite, we may collect and use personal information about you and other individuals whose personal information has been provided to us.

The categories of personal information we may collect from either you or your employer include, but are not limited to:

1. Contact details. To know who is onsite at our events and as part of general entry & access management, we may ask for your contact details (such as name, email address, phone number, and emergency contact details).

2. Identification data. Such as your photograph, date of birth, staff ID card or national ID such as passport, driving license, and immigration/visa status.

3. CCTV footage. When you enter our events and venues, video footage of you will be captured by our CCTV in the same manner as our fans and our staff.

4. Entry & access logs. Where we require you to sign in or otherwise track onsite attendance, we will keep a record of times of entry and exit.

5. Financial information. Such as banking details and tax information.

6. IT information. Information required to provide access to our company IT systems and networks such as IP addresses, log files and login information.

7. Background information. We may need to verify the extent to which you are permitted to be onsite, such as criminal records check, any accreditations or participation in industry memberships.

8. Incidents, complaints & grievances. If an incident occurs or we need to investigate complaints or grievances, we will need to process details of individuals involved to manage or investigate the matter.

9. Sensitive personal information. In limited circumstances, we may need to process your sensitive personal information. For example:

  • As part of our safeguarding initiatives, we may need to process some sensitive personal information (for example, if we need to record injuries onsite, provide assistance and cooperate with emergency services); or
  • As part of preventing the spread of infectious disease that may pose a risk to you or other attendees, we may require that you take a test and provide proof of a negative test result, or alternatively proof of vaccination. This information will only be collected and stored for purposes of access management and deleted once the event has ended.

10. Other personal information you may provide us. While we have tried to be a comprehensive as possible with this list, if we need to process other personal information not covered in this Notice, we’ll let you know why we’re asking for it and how it will be used.


HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION & WHY

Event & access management and physical security

To be able to provide a safe and secure site for you, our fans, and our staff, we will process personal information about visitors to be able to enforce appropriate access management, their purposes for being onsite, and any experiences or issues that may arise.

  • As part of our safeguarding policies and procedures, we process personal information about incidents and visitor wellbeing.
  • In the case of infectious disease prevention measures, any information collected by us or our third-party partners for purposes of test and trace or access management will only be used to contact you and allow entry to the event.

To perform our contractual relationship with you and/or your employer

For example, we may need to process passport and visa details as part of assisting with travel arrangements, or process information about how services and partnerships are being performed.

Managing our relationship with you

We may use your personal information to correspond with you. Examples include:

  • Working with you as part of event organization or management;
  • Informing you of event-specific requirements, changes to our events, or our company policies with which you need to comply (such as our health and safety procedures);
  • Managing and investigating any complaints or grievances that may arise during the course of our relationship with you; or
  • Contacting you for reasons such as obtaining opinions and feedback on our events, discussing future opportunities or other voluntary communications.

Compliance with our legal obligations

We may collect and use your personal information where we consider it necessary for complying with laws and regulations, including collecting and disclosing personal information as required by law (e.g., for tax, health and safety, anti-discrimination laws), under judicial authorisation, or to exercise or defend the legal rights of our companies. We may use your personal information to monitor compliance with these laws and regulations, as well as any company policies that have been communicated to you.

Cooperation with local authorities

Where we need to cooperate with local authorities, for example discussing event management or supporting emergency services, we may need to share some personal information to achieve their objectives.


WHO WE SHARE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH

Transfers to other group companies

As we are a global group of companies, we may need to share personal information other members of our group of companies, some of whom provide shared services for our companies. Examples of these services include IT services/security, tax and accounting, and general business management.

Transfers to third party service providers

In addition, we may make your personal information available for business purposes to third parties who provide services to us. We do so on a “need to know basis” and in accordance with applicable data privacy law.

For example, we share some personal information with our third-party service providers who provide us with travel management services, event administration or services that assist us with providing physical security.

Transfers to other third parties

We may also disclose personal information to third parties on other lawful grounds, including:

  • To comply with our legal obligations, including where necessary to abide by law, regulation or contract, or to respond to a court order, administrative or judicial process, including, but not limited to, a subpoena, government audit or search warrant;
  • In response to lawful requests by public authorities (including for national security or law enforcement purposes);
  • As necessary to establish, exercise or defend against potential, threatened or actual litigation;
  • Where necessary to protect the vital interests of you or another person;
  • In connection with the sale, assignment or other transfer of all or part of our business; and
  • With your consent.

Sales of personal information

We do not sell your personal information. Personal information collected in accordance with this Visitor Privacy Notice shall not be sold (sold shall be interpreted as defined by the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, Cal. Civ. Code 1798.100 et seq.).

You may also submit your request by mailing a letter to the address at the bottom of this policy.

We only keep your information for as long as required to provide you with the services you request, for the purposes outlined in this policy and for any legal purposes for which we are obliged to keep the information. We will securely delete your information when it is no longer required for these purposes, in line with our company policies.

As a part of a global group of companies, we rely on shared services, some of which are located outside of Europe. At the same time, when world-class acts are touring, to provide you a seamless experience, your information may be transferred internationally.

When transferring information in this way, there are strict rules in place to ensure your data is still protected to a high standard. Where we do this, we will ensure that appropriate safeguards are put in place including, where required, one of the mechanisms listed below.

  • Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission
  • Binding Corporate Rules
  • Binding Corporate Processor Rules
