Privacy Policy

Picatic E-Ticket Inc. (“Picatic”, “we”, “our”) are committed to protecting your privacy. We make the website, www.picatic.com (the “Website”) available together with the custom event creation, ticket sales and event fundraising services offered through the Website as further described in our Terms of Service (collectively the “Services”). This Privacy Policy describes how we collect, store, use and distribute information about users of our Services and their Supporters. Terms used in this Privacy Policy will have the same meaning as in our Terms of Service unless the context indicates otherwise.

What does this privacy policy cover?

This Privacy Policy covers our collection, use and disclosure of anyinformation relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“Personal Information”). Personal Information may be collected about users of our Services, visitors to the Website, and Supporters who register for Events.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of companies that we do not own or control. The Services are intended for use by Event promoters. If you are an Event promoter who uses our Service then you are responsible for maintaining your own privacy policies governing your collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information, including that collected through our Services. You are responsible for ensuring that you have obtained the necessary authorizations and consents for any Personal Information you make available to us for use in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Collection and use of information

Collection of Information: We aim to collect, use and disclose only such information as is required to enable us to manage your account, to provide the Services, to maintain our customer/visitor lists, to respond to your inquiries or provide feedback, for identification and authentication purposes, for service improvement and management. We will only use information for the purposes for which we have collected it (subject to the exclusions and disclosures we have listed below), unless you agree that we may disclose it to other third parties.

Use of Information: We collect information for the following purposes:

Registration: If you are an Event promoter, then in order to register for our Services you must provide certain Personal Information to us such as your full name, address, email address, username, Facebook account, Twitter account, LinkedIn, and/or Google+ account. In general, none of your account registration information will be shared with any other users of the Website or our Services. When you sign up for the Services using your Facebook, Twitter and/or Google+ account, Facebook, Twitter and/or Google+ will share certain information with us such as your username, photo (if provided), and contact list. Your username and photo (if provided) will be visible to others if you make your profile public.

Event Ticket Purchases: If you are a Supporter then when you purchase tickets you will be asked to provide certain personal information to us such as your full name, address, email address, username, Facebook account, Twitter account, LinkedIn, and/or Google+ account. This information will be shared with the promoter of the Event for which you are registering. That Event promoter shall be the “controller” of that information, and we will be the “processor” of that information on behalf of the that Event promoter. This means that you will need to contact that Event promoter directly regarding any concerns that you may have regarding the use of your Personal Information by that controller. Further, if you register for an event that has a public list of attendees, your name and social media account which you used to register for the Services will be made public on the attendee list.

Transactional Notifications: If you have registered an account with us, we also provide notifications relating to your use of our Services, despite your indicated e-mail preferences, for example we may send you notices of any updates to our Terms of Service or this Privacy Policy.

Marketing Communications: If you opt-in to receive communications from us, we will keep you up to date on our products and services. You may withdraw your consent to receiving marketing communications from us at any time by following the opt-out instructions in each communication, or by contacting us. Picatic will not send any marketing communication to ticket purchasers unless such ticket purchasers independently opt-in to receive such communications from Picatic.

Statistics: We also collect statistics about use of the Services purchased through the Website. This information will be kept confidential, however, aggregate statistics that do not personally identify an individual will be kept by us and such aggregate statistics may be made available to other members or third parties.

These cookies allow the advertisement server operated by that third party to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement. Accordingly, advertisement servers may compile information about where or whether you viewed their advertisements and which advertisements you clicked on. This information allows web advertisers to deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you.
