What information do we collect?
First of all, we guarantee to be transparent in our dealings with you as to what information we will collect and how we will use your information. Also, we only collect and use individual user details where we have legitimate business reasons, and are legally entitled to do so. (Information on your data privacy rights is available on www.dataprivacy.ie, the website of the Irish Data Protection Commissioner.)
We collect information on our users:
- through use of the website. We may collect IP addresses from visitors to our website (an IP address is a number that can uniquely identify a specific computer or other network device on the internet). This allows us to identify the location of users, to block disruptive use and to establish the number of visits from different countries.
- through registration with gr8events.ie for ticket booking purposes. To register a user for services such as www.gr8events.ie, we need to collect information such as, at a minimum, first name, last name, phone number and an email address.
- Note: If you are aged 18 or under, please get your parent/guardian's permission before you provide any personal information to us. Users without this consent are not allowed to provide us with personal information.
How do we use the information we collect?
We collect different types of information about our users for these two main reasons:
- To personalise the way our content is presented to you e.g. if you specify that you are interested in theatrical shows and conferences, we will prioritise theatrical productions or meeting venues in the information we show you when you are logged in.
- To help us to monitor and improve the services we offer, including this website. As part of this, we may use and disclose information in aggregate (so that no individuals are identified).
Are there cases where we may use your information to contact you?
We may contact you:
- for administration reasons related to the service to which you have signed up (e.g. to provide you with password reminders or to notify you that a particular service, activity or online content has been suspended for maintenance).
- to provide you with information about our services, activities or online content. You should only receive e-newsletters or anything similar from gr8events.ie. It will be made clear to you where you have these choices, for example, by providing tick boxes for you to decide whether you wish to receive e-newsletters.
- in response to any contact you have made with us, e.g. on the GR8Events Facebook page, or via the Contact Us facility.
- to invite you to participate in surveys about our services (participation is always voluntary).
- Where GR8Events wishes to use your personal information in any other way, we will ensure that we notify you first. You will also be given the opportunity to withhold or withdraw your consent for the use of your personal information for purposes other than those listed in this document.
