Sometimes, our use of your personal information is for purposes which are ancillary to the provision of the Services. In those circumstances, we believe we have a legitimate interest in handling your personal information, and believe that the benefits of this storage and use of your personal information will outweigh any potential impact on you and not unduly prejudice your rights or freedoms.

12.1 Marketing from us
We may use your name, contact details, and the data on the Services used by you to decide which events, services and offers may be relevant for you.
You will receive marketing communications from us if you have requested information from us or purchased a ticket in our Websites or if you provided us with your details when you entered a competition or registered for a promotion and, in each case, you have not opted out from receiving that marketing.
Victoria will also send mobile integrated push notifications, in accordance with your marketing preferences, for advertising and marketing the Services, themselves or events on the Services.

Where you opt out of receiving these marketing messages, this will not apply to personal information provided to us as a result of the Services.

13. Third-party advertising companies
We want to make sure that our advertising and marketing is relevant and interesting to you and our other users. To achieve this, we use third-party advertising and technology companies to serve ads and/or provide aggregated data to assist in serving ads when you visit or use our Services. This includes third party technology companies which collect data about you in order to build a profile of your preferences based on your activities when you visit or use our Services. We also use these companies to automatically collect data from you when you use our Services in order to help us identify the ads that are served to you and what you do after seeing those ads. In addition, we also share data with providers of web analytics tools, such as Google Analytics, to which we use to analyse your use of the Services.
In some cases these third parties will also use the data that they collect for their own purposes, for example they may: aggregate your data with other data they hold and use this to inform advertising related services provided to other clients; and work with other advertising companies and share your personal information with such companies as part of the process.
We might also share your data with social media or other similar platforms, so that you and other people can see relevant content on that platform. For example, we may use the LinkedIn Custom Audiences service and share your email address in a protected format with LinkedIn so that we can: include you in a custom audience that we will serve relevant advertising content to on LinkedIn; or create an audience of other LinkedIn users based on the information in your LinkedIn profile. You can opt-out from by emailing email@example.com.
14. How we share your personal information and who we share it with:
We disclose information under the following circumstances:

– IT infrastructure companies that facilitate our provision of the Services to you;
– IT support service providers; and
– other third-party service providers, for the purpose of providing or tracking our users' use of the Services (including but not limited to payment processors).
These companies are authorised to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these Services to us.
– Merger or acquisition: When we need to transfer information about you if we are acquired by or merged with another company. If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified afterwards via e-mail and/or a prominent notice on our Services of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.
– Event organisers: when you purchase tickets to, register for or donate to an event through the event page, or through a related fundraising page on the Services, we provide the personal data entered on the applicable event or related fundraising page to the organisers of such event or related fundraising page. In some instances, an organiser may appoint a third party, which may or may not be affiliated with the organiser, to create an event or fundraising page on its behalf (we call these third parties "Third Party Organisers"). For example, and without limitation, a concert venue (the organiser, in this case) may allow third party promoters or production companies (the Third Party Organisers) to create events that will be hosted at the organiser's venue using its Victoria account. In that case, we may provide your personal data associated with the event to both to the organiser, and its appointed Third Party Organiser that created the event. You agree that we are not responsible for the actions of these organisers, or their Third Party Organisers, with respect to your personal data. It is important that you review the applicable policies of the organisers, and if applicable and available, their appointed Third Party Organisers, of an event (and the related fundraising page, if applicable) before providing personal data or other information in connection with that event or related fundraising page. Victoria will not share with an organiser any payment data. For the purposes of this section, payment data means any full credit card number or other full payment account number and the related expiration date and security code entered by a user of the Services in order to purchase a ticket or registration, make a donation or purchase merchandise related to events, so long as such information is entered in the fields on the order payment page or on the payment methods tab in the Apps settings. Note that if you enter such information in other areas of the Services or otherwise provide it to another user, it may not be encrypted and may be automatically shared with the applicable organiser, so you should enter such information only in the order payment page or on the payment methods tab in the Apps settings
– Other Victoria users: from the very nature of Victoria, personal data of users would be available to other users participating, for example, in an event.
15. International transfers:
As a general rule, if you are a user resident in the EU, please note that Victoria will store your personal data in the EU.
When transferring personal information outside the EEA, we will:
– include the standard contractual data protection clauses approved by the European Commission for transferring personal information outside the EEA into our contracts with those third parties (these are the clauses approved under Article 46.2 of the General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR"); or
– ensure that the country in which your personal information will be handled has been deemed "adequate" by the European Commission under Article 45 of the GDPR; or
– (where appropriate when we are transferring your personal information to a recipient in the US) ensure that the recipient is part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to any personal information shared between Europe and the US.
You can find out further information about the rules on data transfers outside the EEA, including the mechanisms that we rely upon, on the European Commission website.
Please also note that when you are purchasing tickets or enrolling into an event, such event may be organized by another user or entity located outside the EEA.
