2. General purposes of processing

We use personal information for the purpose of maintaining functional Websites and providing our contents and services. Ticketcorner treats personal information with confidence, care and for the given purpose. In doing so, we adhere to the relevant requirements of the applicable data protection legislation.

3. What data we use and why

  • 3.1 Processing your personal data when visiting our websites
  • When you visit our Websites, the browser and apps used on your computer or mobile device automatically send and process information to the server of our Websites.

    • 3.1.1 Processing for IT security purposes
    • 1. When you visit our Websites, we process your personal data that we require for technical purposes in order to make our Websites available and ensure stability and security when you visit our Websites. We process the following personal data for this purpose:

      • IP address
      • Browser fingerprints
      • Browser user agents
      • Cookies (see section 3.1.5 Cookies)

      We reserve the right to check this log data retrospectively if there is a legitimate suspicion of unlawful use based on specific indications. We store IP addresses in the log files for a limited period of time if necessary for security purposes, for the provision of services or the billing of a service, e.g. if you use one of our offers. In addition, as part of your account, we store the date of your last visit (e.g. when registering, logging in, clicking links etc.).

      2. In order to identify and defend against threats (bot defence, DDoS attacks) and to deliver and accelerate online applications, we utilise the services of Akamai Technologies GmbH, Parkring 20-22, 85748 Garching, Germany, on our Websites. Akamai processes the IP address of your end device. Akamai uses this information on our behalf to prevent technical threats to our Website and to ensure a high level of availability of our Website. The IP address is generally transmitted to servers of Akamai in the USA, where it is processed. This data is transmitted based on standard EU contractual clauses.

      3. We utilise Google reCaptcha v2 on our Websites. reCaptcha is a service offered by Google (Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland) and serves to prevent the misuse of automated entries in web forms and consequently protect the technical systems of the host.

      When you call up one of our Websites in which reCaptcha is integrated, a connection is established to Google’s servers. A reCaptcha cookie is set. Your IP address will be transmitted to Google.

      In addition, reCaptcha collects the following data through «fingerprinting»:

      • Browser plug-ins used
      • The cookies set by Google in the last six months
      • The number of mouse clicks and areas you have moved on this screen
      • CSS information for the page you are viewing
      • Javascript objects
      • The date
      • The browser language

      The storage and analysis of the data is based on our legitimate interest in protecting our Websites from abusive automated spying and spam. To the extent that personal data is transmitted to Google in the USA, this is carried out based on standard EU contractual clauses.

      You may refuse the use of cookies and fingerprinting by selecting the relevant technical settings on your browser. Please note, however, that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this Website.

      You can find Google’s privacy policy and terms of use here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/ and here: https://policies.google.com/terms

      4. We process your personal data based on our legitimate interest in making the Websites available to you and ensuring IT security for you when you visit our Websites.

    • 3.1.2 Processing for analysis purposes
    • 1. When you visit our Websites, we may analyse and record how you use our Websites, e.g. number of Website visits, your browsing behaviour on our Websites, which events and areas on our Website you are interested in, origin of Website visitors and, if you purchase a ticket from us, your order and shopping cart data. We process the following personal data for this purpose:

      • IP address (truncated)
      • Cookies (see section 3.1.5 Cookies)
      • The website from which the user has reached the accessed Website (referrer)
      • The time spent on the Website

      2. We process your personal data based on your consent. If you would like to object to the data processing, please click the following link: Cookie settings

      3. For analysis purposes, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, for which Google Ireland Limited, Gorden House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland («Google») is responsible for users located in Switzerland and the European Economic Area (EEA).

      Google Analytics uses «cookies», which allow an analysis of how our Website is used.

      The information about the website usage generated by the cookie is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

      The IP address provided by Google Analytics from your Internet browser will not be merged with other Google data. Ticketcorner also added the «anonymizeIP» code to Google Analytics on its Websites. This ensures the masking of the user’s IP address so that all data is collected anonymously. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the US and truncated there.

      On behalf of Ticketcorner, Google will utilise this information for the purpose of evaluating the use of the Websites, compiling reports on Website activity and providing other services relating to Website activity and Internet usage to Ticketcorner.

      You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the relevant settings on your browser. If you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of the respective Website.

      The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data.

      You can find more information on terms of use and privacy at:
      https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/terms/regional.html
      https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy
      Explanation on the use of data from third parties by Google: https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites

      In connection with the use of of Google Analytics, your personal data may be transmitted to the USA. This data is transmitted based on standard EU contractual clauses.

      4. Ticketcorner uses Google Analytics including the features of Universal Analytics. Universal Analytics allows us to analyse the activity on our Websites across devices (e.g. when accessed via a laptop and later via a tablet). This is made possible by pseudonymously assigning a user ID to a user. Such assignment takes place, for example, when the user registers for a customer account or logs on to this account. However, no personal data are being forwarded to Google. Although Universal Analytics adds additional functionalities to Google Analytics, it does not entail any restriction of data protection measures such as IP masking or the browser add-on.

      Our Websites also use the Optinmonster software from the company Retyp LLC, 3701 Savoy Ln, West Palm Beach, FL 33417, USA. This allows us to provide our users with additional offers by overlays on our website. Personal data is only collected if the customer actively opts in (e.g. if the customer registers for the newsletter via a pop-up). OptinMonster does not save the collected data on its own servers; instead, it forwards it directly to Ticketcorner tools. Details on the handling of your personal data using Optinmonster and your rights in this respect can be found in the Optinmonster data protection notices at: https://optinmonster.com/privacy/

      4. Ticketcorner uses the Frosmo platform, which collects data about its Website visitors in order to target them with tailored content that meets their needs and interests. To collect data, Frosmo employs various technologies, including browser cookies.

Frosmo never collects visitor data for its own purposes or for the purpose of selling it to third parties.

      6. Cross-website advertising via third-party providers

      We utilise the technology of The ADEX GmbH, Berlin to collect information about how you use our Websites and to provide this information to third parties for the purpose of displaying usage-based advertising.

      7. In order to present you and users who are like you in their purchasing behaviour with suitable product recommendations in social media networks (Facebook, Instagram), your encrypted e-mail address will be passed on to these networks after you have registered for Ticketcorner News. Your e-mail address is encrypted using the SHA-256 hashing process and transmitted to the USA for this purpose. This data is transmitted based on standard EU contractual clauses.

      The data is transmitted regardless of whether you have a user account with Facebook. Once the hashed data (matching) has been compared with the hashed user data on Facebook, Facebook deletes the transmitted data. This ensures that e-mail addresses of people who are not registered as users on Facebook are not available to Facebook outside of this data comparison.

    If you did not buy your ticket from us yourself, but received it as a gift from the purchaser, for example, and now send in the ticket due to a cancellation or postponement of the event, we will process the data that you have provided to us as a different sender in an informal manner or via the form on our Website. We process your personal data for the purpose of returning your ticket and providing you with a refund.

    If you have provided sensitive personal data concerning yourself or a third party when purchasing a ticket, we will process this data for the purpose of refunding the ticket based on your consent.

  • 3.9 Newsletter and Ticket Alarm
  • To register for our newsletter and ticket alarm, the data requested in the registration process and your language setting are required. Newsletter and ticket alarm registrations are logged. After registration, you will receive a message to your e-mail address asking you to confirm the subscription («double opt-in»). This is necessary so that third parties cannot register with your e-mail address.

    You can cancel your newsletter or ticket alarm subscriptions at any time using the contact details referred to in point 1 or revoke your consent to receiving a newsletter or ticket alarm at any time and thus unsubscribe from the newsletter without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates.

    You will also find an unsubscribe link in every newsletter.

    We store the registration details as long as they are needed for the sending of the ticket alarm or newsletters. The registration logging and the e-mail address are stored as long as there is an interest in having the proof of the originally given consent.

    The legal basis for sending the newsletter is your consent. The legal basis for logging the registration is our legitimate interest in proving that newsletter is being sent with your consent.

  • 3.10 Information about the same or similar events or services
  • Regardless of whether or not you have subscribed to our newsletter, Ticketcorner may use the personal data collected in connection with a ticket purchase to inform you about the same or similar events, services or partner offers in the future. We send this information based on our legitimate interest in continuing to keep you informed about events and services that you may be interested in based on your ticket purchases. You can unsubscribe from receiving such information at any time via the unsubscribe link in the relevant e-mails.

  • 3.11 Writing FanReports
  • After attending an event, you can post a review of the event on our Websites or tell us and other visitors to our Websites if you enjoyed the event. Your review will be published on our Websites. When you submit your FanReport, you consent to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of publishing your FanReport.

  • 3.12 E-mail and other contacts (customer service)
  • If you contact us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail), we will process your details in order to handle the request, notification as well as follow-up questions. If you contact us by calling our hotline, your conversation may be recorded. You will be notified of the possible recording by an announcement prior to the call.

    If data processing is carried out for the purpose of pre-contractual measures upon your request or, if you are already our customer, for the execution of the contract, the legal basis for this data processing is the fulfilment of the contract.

    We only process personal data if you consent to it or if we have a legitimate interest in processing your data. A legitimate interest might lie in responding to your emails or other requests.

  • 3.13 Participation in sweepstakes
  • If you participate in a sweepstake organised by us, we will process your data in order to conduct the competition and send notification of a prize (via e-mail or social networks).

    The legal basis for processing your data is your consent to participate in the competition.

  • 3.14 Affiliate programmes and affiliate links
  • Our website features an embedded hotel card from the third-party provider Stay22. If you follow the links on this hotel card (affiliate links) and go on to make use of the offers provided via those links, we may receive remuneration from the third-party provider in the form of commission.

    The third-party provider (Stay22) has to know you have followed embedded affiliate links in our website in order to ascertain whether you have made use of the offers in the hotel card. Affiliate links are assigned to relevant transactions or other activity (e.g. purchases) solely in order to calculate any commission due. These assignments are removed when they are no longer required for this purpose.

    For the purposes of assigning affiliate links as described above, certain values can be added to the links. These values can be added as integral parts of the links concerned, or saved separately (e.g. in a cookie). Specifically, these additional values may include the website from which the link was accessed (the referrer), the time at which it was accessed, an online identifier for the operator of the website where the affiliate link was located, an online identifier for the offer concerned, the type of link used, the type of offer, and an online identifier for the user. You can stop these cookies being generated by turning off targeting cookies in your cookie settings.

    Your data will be processed on the basis of our legitimate interest (specifically our interest in being able to provide efficient, profitable, user-friendly services, and our interest in determining the amount of affiliate remuneration due).

4. Retention and deletion of your personal data

We store your personal data for as long as and to the extent that it is required for the purposes for which it is processed.

Once the data is no longer required for the purposes specified in section 2 and section 3, we will retain your personal data for the time period during which you can assert claims against us or we can assert claims against you.

In addition, we store your personal data for as long as and to the extent that we are legally required to do so. The retention obligation period applies for up to ten years.

5. Rights of data subjects

You have the following rights regarding your personal data.

If you wish to assert these rights, please send your request by e-mail or by mail with a clear identification of your person to the address specified in section 1.
You have the right to

  • request information about your personal data that we have processed;
  • request the correction of inaccurate or incomplete personal data that we have stored about you immediately;
  • request the deletion of your personal data that we have stored, unless the processing is required to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information, to comply with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims;
  • request the restriction of the processing of your personal data;
  • obtain your personal data provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request the transfer to another controller;
  • revoke your consent given to us at any time. As a result, we are not allowed to continue the data processing based on this consent for the future;
  • lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. As a rule, you can contact the supervisory authority of your usual place of residence or work or our company headquarters.

6. Right to object

If your personal data are processed with legitimate interests, you have the right to file an objection to the processing of your personal data should there be reasons for this arising from your particular situation or if the objection is directed against direct mail. In the latter case, you have a general right to object, which is implemented by us without specifying any particular situation.

7. Data security

We make every effort to ensure the security of your data within the framework of applicable data protection laws and technical possibilities.

To secure your data, we maintain technical and organisational security measures that we continually update to reflect the state of the art.

Your personal data is transmitted encrypted. This applies to your orders and also to the customer login. We use the SSL coding system (Secure Socket Layer). Additional measures to ensure the IT security of the Website are listed in section 3.1.1.

Yet we point out that data transmissions over the Internet (e.g. When communicating by e-mail) might entail security gaps. A full protection of the data from access by third parties is not possible.

We also do not guarantee that our offer will be available at specific times as disturbances, interruptions or failures may occur. The servers we use are regularly backed up.

8. Transfer of data to third parties

Basically, we only use your personal data within our company.

However, for the purpose of processing the contract between you and the organiser or operator concerning the purchase of the ticket and for the processing of your personal data by the organiser or operator in this context, Ticketcorner may transmit your personal data to the organiser or venue of the event chosen by you and to the operator of the venue, leisure or cultural facility or mountain railway chosen by you. If you place a booking via a website of a cooperation partner (such as Raiffeisen Schweiz Genossenschaft, Schweizerische Mobiliar or Sunrise GmbH) for whom Ticketcorner operates a website, your personal data will also be transmitted to the corresponding cooperation partner. Personal data collected in connection with a ticket purchase may be used to notify you of the same or similar events in the future. If you make a booking on an electronic transfer medium (such as the SBB SwissPass), Ticketcorner is in addition entitled to forward your order data to the issuer of this transfer medium in so far as the issuer needs such data solely to fulfil its customer service obligations.

We transmit your personal data to banks, payment service providers, financial service providers and credit card companies to process the payment and any refund of the purchase price, depending on the payment method and process selected.

If we send you your ticket by mail, we will transmit your personal data to a shipping service provider.
In order to carry out the collection procedure, we transmit your personal data to collection service providers who carry out the procedure for us.

Information e-mails, newsletters and invitations to customer surveys are sent by service providers we commission and their use by you may be analysed and documented. We transmit your personal data to the service providers for this purpose.

If and to the extent that we outsource certain parts of our data processing, we subject the contractor(s) to a contractual obligation only to use personal data in accordance with the requirements set out in the applicable data protection legislation and to ensure that the rights of the data subject are protected.

Within this context, we also use IT services provided by our parent company, CTS EVENTIM AG & Co. KGaA, Munich, Germany.

We also use IT service providers from the US that we conclude corresponding agreements with (in particular based on the standard contractual clauses of the European Commission), taking technical and organisational measures to ensure an appropriate level of security.
We are also authorised to pass personal data on to our parent companies CTS EVENTIM AG & Co. KGaA, Munich, Germany and Ringier Ltd, Zofingen for internal group reporting and analysis purposes.

With your consent, personal data may also be disclosed to other third parties (e.g. artists). This disclosure will only take place, however, if you have consented to the disclosure to the data recipient and the purposes specified in the consent. This consent may be revoked at any time from Ticketcorner or from the organisation indicated in the consent.

In addition, we will only disclose your personal data to the extent that we are legally required to do so.

9. Modification of this data protection policy

Ticketcorner reserves the right to change this data protection policy at any time. Changes will be published on the Ticketcorner websites and take effect upon their activation.
