Personal data is any information that can be used to identify a specific individual, such as your name, email address, home address, phone number and credit card information.
You may choose to provide personal data when you visit us or our affiliates or licensees at one of our events or through our Website.

Here are some of the ways in which you may provide us with your personal data and the types of personal data you may submit. We also explain how we (or any of our associated companies) may use the personal data in different ways according to the purpose for which it was provided. For example, if you provide personal data to register for a newsletter or a text messaging service, to enter a competition or promotion or to purchase goods or services, we will use it to register you for or provide you with those goods or services. We may also obtain personal data from reputable third parties, such as credit agencies.
We may also use your personal data to provide you with information about our events coming up, ticket sales, features, services and other offerings that may be of interest to you. We also may send information or offers to selected groups of Website users on behalf of other businesses. When we do this, we do not give those businesses your name or address.

We will notify you of this possibility when you provide the personal data and, if possible, when the personal data is posted.

Other Data We May Collect Automatically
When you visit http://www.tastefestivals.com, we may automatically collect certain personal data that we then aggregate so that it is not linked to a single, identifiable individual. This information provides us with statistics such as how many users visited our site and which pages were accessed. By collecting this information, we learn how to best tailor this Website to our visitors. We collect this information either through "log files", "cookie" technology or with "web beacons", as explained below.
Log files are web server files (such as the domain name or IP address, URL, the http response code, the Website from where you visit us or the date and duration of your visit) that are automatically created when an Internet user visits a site. Once you stop using our Website, we process and use this information only to enable further connections, for billing purposes, to detect disruptions to telecommunication equipment and to detect abuse of our telecommunication services. We delete this information routinely.
This information is used to create general aggregated profiles of our Website user base and is not used to create personalised user profiles. In case of disruption or misuse, we reserve the right to file a report with law enforcement agencies. We do not use this information for any other purpose(s) and do not share this information with any third parties, except as set out in the section titled "How We Share Personal Data" below.
The majority of browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. The toolbar on most browsers will have a feature to tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to receive notification of new cookies, and how to disable any existing cookies. Please note, however, if you do disable, reject or stop cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of all our Website features and services we would like to offer you.
Certain pages on our Website may contain "web beacons" (also known as Internet tags, pixel tags and clear GIFs). These web beacons allow third parties to obtain information such as the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the beacon appears, the URL of the page on which the beacon appears, the time the page containing the beacon was viewed, the type of browser used to view the page, and the information in cookies sent by the third party.
HOW WE SHARE PERSONAL DATA
We do not sell or otherwise disclose personal data about our Website visitors, except as described here. We may share your personal data with affiliates and/or licensees of Taste Festivals for specific purposes disclosed to you when you registered for our Website (or otherwise provided data to us, for example for a Promotion). Otherwise we will do so only with your explicit consent.
We may also share your personal data with service providers, employees or contractors that we have retained to perform services or work on our behalf. These parties are provided only with the personal data they need to perform their functions and can only use and disclose such personal data as is necessary to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements.
In addition, we may disclose your personal data (i) if we are required to do so by law or legal process, (ii) to law enforcement authorities or other government officials, or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity.
We reserve the right to transfer your personal data in the event we sell or transfer all or a part of our business or assets. Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable endeavours to direct the subsequent owner to use the personal data you have provided through this Website in a manner that is consistent with this Notice. If you do not want your personal data to be processed following such a transfer, you should contact the subsequent owner of Taste Festivals.
WHERE YOUR PERSONAL DATA MAY BE TRANSFERRED AND STORED
Your personal data will be processed in the United Kingdom and/or in other states of the European Economic Area (EEA). However as a global company, Taste Festivals may from time to time transfer your personal data to global customer databases located in the United States of America and make it accessible by any of our affiliate entities worldwide or to third parties. The transfer of data outside of the EEA which does not provide an adequate level of protection is subject to restrictions. Taste Festivals has taken reasonable steps so that personal data it collects receives an appropriate level of data protection.
You understand and hereby agree that your personal data may be sent to the United States of America or to other countries which do not provide an adequate level of data protection and that Taste Festivals has taken steps to ensure that your personal data will be adequately protected. If you no longer wish to consent to the transfer of your personal data as described in this paragraph please contact us as described in the “How to Contact Us” section of this Notice.
