At Clarifi Media Limited, we are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. Here, we tell you how we will use the personal information you send us.
WHY DO WE NEED YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?
Festyvent uses data from a variety of sources to give you the best possible event experience. This means everything from being able to find friends at a venue, letting you know where you left your car or tent or getting updated on the latest offers available around a particular stage or location. So that you can feel comfortable using Festyvent it is important that you understand what personal information we can access and collect about you and what we do with that information.
By visiting the site or downloading the app you are accepting and consenting to the practices described in this policy.

INFORMATION ON CHILDREN
Neither our site nor our app are directed to children under the age of 18. None of our services are available to children. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children. If you are a parent or guardian and become aware that your child has provided us with personal information, please contact us and we will delete the relevant information from our servers.
HOW DO WE USE YOUR INFORMATION?
We don’t want to overload you with information but we also don’t want you to miss out on the latest event developments and offers.
Sharing information with event organisers
Event organisers and Clarifi Media Limited will only contact you by electronically (e-mail or SMS) with information about similar goods and services (such as similar apps) which we may offer now or in the future. If you do not want us to use your data in this way, please let us know by email to [email protected]
We will not disclose information about identifiable individuals to our advertisers, but we may provide them with aggregate information about our users (for example, we may inform them that 500 men aged under 30 have clicked on their advertisement on any given day). We may also use such aggregate information to help advertisers reach the kind of audience they want to target (for example, women in SW1). We may make use of your personal data to help our advertisers display their advertisements to their target audience.
We also use information held about you in the following ways.
Information you give to us will be used by us or the event organiser:
- to carry out our contractual obligations to you and to provide you with the information and services that you request from us including the use of our app;
- to identify and allow you to connect with our other users;
- to provide you with information about other similar services we offer (such as apps for other events which we think you might find interesting);
- to provide you, or permit selected third parties to provide you, with information about goods or services we feel may interest you;
- to notify you about changes to our service;
- to ensure that content from our site and app is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer (including any mobile devices you may be using).
Information we collect about you will be used by us or the event organiser:
- to administer our site and app for internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research, statistical and survey purposes;
- to improve our site and app to make sure that content is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer;
- to allow you to participate in interactive features of our service, when you choose to do so;
- as part of our efforts to keep our site and app safe and secure;
- to measure or understand the effectiveness of the events you attend;
- to measure or understand the effectiveness of advertising we serve to you and others, and to deliver relevant advertising to you; and
- in the case of location services information, to provide various features through the site and/or the app. If you have not enabled location services, some of these features will not be available.
Information we receive from other sources may be combined with information you give to us and information we collect about you. We may use this information and the combined information for the purposes set out above (depending on the types of information we receive). For example, to make the service more efficient, we may use multiple data sources to identify issues with the service which we can improve.
Push notifications are updates that can automatically appear on your phone as an alert or pop up message following a particular event. For example, if you get a pop-up message when you get a new Facebook message or your news app identifies a headline as ‘breaking news’, that is a push notification. We (or more likely the event organiser) may send push notifications to your mobile device to provide relevant messages and app updates. You can manage push notifications from your device’s settings page for the relevant app.
