GDPR Ready Ticketing


GDPR Ready Ticketing

As you may already know, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a new European law that comes into effect on 25th May 2018. It introduces enhanced responsibilities on organisations operating in Europe that collect personal data.


Here's what you need to know

GDPR compliant

Ticket Tailor's
compliance with GDPR

We have taken a number of steps to comply with the GDPR. For more details about our compliance and how we handle your data please check our latest legal documents below:

Data ownership

You own all your ticket buyer and attendee data

When you use Ticket Tailor for selling tickets and collecting data from your attendees you are the “data controller” of all your attendees’ data. We are a “data processor”, which means that we won’t do anything with your attendees’ data other than what you need us to in order to provide our service. We won’t be sending your attendees any marketing emails, sharing their data with anyone and if you want us to delete the data, just ask. It’s your data. 100%.

Email

We ensure that all your data is protected!

The servers and databases that power Ticket Tailor are located in the EU in Ireland. We inevitably use a small number of third parties, some of which are outside of the EU, to provide our ticketing service and we have contracts with each of them that oblige them to comply with the GDPR. You can find the full list of these third parties and what we use them for here.



You own your data

We’ve made it easy to upload your privacy policy for your attendees

Under the GDPR, you must tell attendees why you are collecting their personal data and how you are using it. Usually this information is set out in a privacy policy that the individual can read when they give you their data. You may already have a privacy policy, in which case you can now easily upload it to your online box office so that your attendees can see it when registering for tickets.

Email opt-in

It's now easier for you to collect marketing consent

Under data protection laws, you may need to collect consent to send email marketing. We’ve made it really easy to add an email marketing opt-in checkbox on your online box office. We’ve also hooked it up with our MailChimp integration so that only those who opt in get synced to your MailChimp account.
