A Brief Summary of why we Need your Data
As a booking agent, we, of course, need customer's personal data in order to fulfil a booking. Generally, this would only be the name, email address and phone number plus the delivery address if you order a gift pack. When a customer chooses to book a date, the information they provide us is passed to the supplier running the event in order to complete the booking and send the tickets/confirmation.

Customers who give us permission are referred to as 'opt-in' customers. It's important to know that you can opt out of receiving emails by clicking the 'unsubscribe' link present in any of our marketing emails.

- We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission
- Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe
- Where we use service providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the US
