All sensitive data referencing the purchase of tickets was processed by Ticketline up to 2022 from Aug 12th processed by SEE Tickets and covered by their own Data Policies. No information is held on servers that Valley Fest is in control of.
Our marketing database is managed through Mailchimp which has direct marketing requirements built in, e.g. an unsubscribe option on all communications.
In addition, Valley Fest uses the services of Weez Events to manage their cashless wristband operation. Account creation, including name & email, is required for sign-up to fulfil wristband use at the event. All sensitive data referencing the top-up of wristbands is processed by Weez Event and covered by their own Data Policies. No information is held on servers that Valley Fest is in control of. No data collected by Weez Event will ever be used for marketing purposes.
