1. Data Controller

The data controller of this website is Showshappening Ltd. With registered office at Level 3, Goldfield House, Triq Dun Karm, Bkara. This is ONLY a postal address. Please do not go to this address because there will be noone that can help you there. The best way to contact us is by email hello@showshappening.com or via messenger on our Facebook Page.

2. Information collected when you visit Showshappening

Like most website operators, ShowsHappening collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. ShowsHappening’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how ShowsHappening’s visitors use its website. From time to time, ShowsHappening may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

3. Information collected when you register and buy ticket(s)

When you register or buy ticket(s) the following information is collected. When you purchase a ticket for an event this data is passed onto the respective organiser and in this instance Showshappening acts as the Data Processor. We pass on the information to the organisers solely and specifically for such organiser to be able to make contact you, the ticket holder if, for instance, the event is cancelled or otherwise postponed.

If you have opted in to receiving promotional updates from the promoters of the events that you attend, then we will allow only those promoters to access your email address for the purpose of sending you promotional material. It is important to note that you may opt in to all the promoters you have bought tickets for, or none. So for example if you have opted in and bought a ticket for Promoter A, and attended an event of Promoter B , then both Promoter A and B will have access to your email address. If you ever decide to opt out, then you can update your settings to opt out, or you may can decide to opt out from the promoter's newsletter.

Promotional material is usually the announcement of an event, or announcement of ticket sales - and we all know how much everyone loves front row centre seats!
