PRIVACY AND COOKIE POLICY

POLICY UPDATED MARCH 4, 2020

Crankworx Events Inc., through its subsidiaries, provides a variety of resort services around the world (together, “Crankworx Events Inc”). We value you as a guest and know that you care how information about you is collected and used. This Privacy Policy (the “Privacy Policy” or “Policy”) informs you about what information we collect and how we use it. 

The Policy applies to the Personal Information we collect when you use the Crankworx World Tour online or mobile application – where the Policy is referenced (our “Sites”). The Policy also applies to the Personal Information we collect when you visit any of our Crankworx World Tour events sponsored in whole or in part by Crankworx Events Inc., or other service providers worldwide (our “Locations”).

Personal Information We Collect

When we use the term “Personal Information” we mean information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a natural person or household, such as a real name, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number, payment information.  When other information (such as consumer preferences, demographic information, or opinions about an identified individual or reasonably identifiable individual) is directly associated with Personal Information, we treat this other information as Personal Information.  Information that is de-identified, aggregated, or anonymized will not be considered Personal Information.  Publicly available information that is made available from federal, state, or local government records, also may not be personal information.

When visiting our Sites, interacting with us (e.g., over the phone, by email) or providing information at any of our Locations, we may collect the following types of Personal Information:

  • identification data (e.g., first name, last name, postal address, phone number, email address);
  • payment details or methods and transaction information (e.g., event tickets, or goods, or book accommodations online);
  • login/authentication information (e.g., login ID, passwords)
  • connection data (e.g., IP address, connection speed, type of browser used and information communicated by your browser, mobile network information, data automatically communicated by your device);
  • device information (e.g. device type, screen size, operating system);
  • data regarding your use of our Sites (e.g., date and time of visits, viewing information, pages viewed, keystroke activity, time spent on pages, scroll activity, click/touch information, content you provide, such as through email or messages, and mouse movements);
  • demographic information (e.g. household information, number of children, age ranges, gender).

Please note that such data may either be directly collected from you (e.g., when you fill out a form at one of our Locations or on one of our Sites) or indirectly from you. In this latter case, the following sources enable us to obtain the Personal Information:

  • when your electronic communications devices, such as smartphones, tablets, or computers, automatically submit information;
  • when we are provided information from other business partners; 
  • when such information is available from public sources.

In addition to the above, we may combine information you have provided to us on our Sites with information you have provided to us offline, including information you have provided to us at one of our Locations, and we may store this information together in your customer profile.  For example, we may combine data automatically collected when you attend an event, or otherwise visit one of our Locations, with your customer profile.  This enables us to provide the best experience possible when you visit our Locations.

How We Use Your Personal Information

We may use your Personal Information for the following purposes, all of which relate to the relationship between you and us, and the services we provide:

  • to provide you or the person of your choice with the services and/or products you requested (e.g., schedule updates regarding various events throughout the festival), to perform transactions, in particular to check your identity or the identity of the person you designated, as well as for billing and shipping purposes;
  • to provide you and/or the person you designated with after-sale support in case you encounter any difficulties following your transaction with us.
