This Privacy Policy explains how information about you, which is collected by Taste Festivals Limited (“Taste Festivals”, "we", "us") when you use our website, mobile applications and other online products and services as well as when you attend our events (collectively, the "Services"), or when you otherwise interact with us or other users via the Services, is used and shared.


We collect information you provide directly to us. For example, when you create a mobile application account you have the option to supply us with your email address. We also collect information when you create a mobile application account and/or profile, associate a mobile application account with a social network account, use or access our Services including any interactive areas of our Services, request or purchase Services, fill out a form, provide us with your contact information, participate in a contest or promotion, complete a survey, sign up to receive one of our newsletters, make a purchase, communicate with us via third party social media sites, request customer support or otherwise communicate with us.

When you choose to purchase merchandise or subscribe to the Services, we may ask you to provide your name, email address, postal address, a password, and/or telephone number or other personal data, as necessary. This personal data is collected for the purpose of providing you with the Services you choose to purchase and/or subscribe for. We may also ask you to provide your payment information when making a purchase, or we may direct you to a third party payment processing service to make payment.
If you attend one of our events, we may collect your date of birth to ensure your eligibility to attend the event and/or consume alcoholic beverages.
Message Boards, Chat Rooms, Blogs and Other User Forums
Personal data posted to message boards, chat rooms, blogs and other public user forums becomes public information. Please use caution when using these features of our Services.

Newsletters and Other Communications
When you use our Services, you may sign up to receive newsletters and other communications about our Services and promotions (e.g. on the official Taste Festivals Limited website (/info/newsletter-sign-up/)). To sign up, we may ask you for additional personal data, as necessary, to send you the communications you request.
We may send you communications related to the Services which you have purchased or inquired about.
With your consent, we may send push notifications or alerts to your mobile device. You will be asked whether or not you wish to receive such push notifications when you download the relevant mobile application and can deactivate these messages at any time by changing the notification settings on your mobile device.

When you register for our mobile application you will be offered the choice to accept notifications from us. If you agree, we will be able to provide you with exclusive content and features as well as information about in-event promotions being offered by us and others. All notifications, including promotional notifications will come directly from us and will not be sent to you by any third party.

If you provide us with your email address, for example when you create a mobile application account, we will ask you if you would like to receive promotional material based on your interests by email from us or from other companies we work with including our parent companies (International Management Group (UK) Limited ("IMG"), and WME IMG), their affiliates and subsidiaries. If you do not wish to receive such marketing information, you may opt-out either during the registration process, or by following the "unsubscribe" link in any communications you receive from us or by emailing us at

If you have provided us with your postal address we may also use your details for promotional purposes unless you ask us not to do this.


We may share your information with our partners, including IMG, WME IMG, WME, AGT GmbH International, their affiliates and subsidiaries, affiliates, distributors, resellers, channel partners and/or our licensees where necessary to provide Services which you request or to support our promotional activity or as permitted by applicable law. 
We may also disclose data relating to you to approved third parties for business analytics purposes.

If you have agreed to receive direct marketing from us and our affiliated companies, we may also share your data for this purpose

We will share your personal data with other users at your direction or through functionality available in the Services, including when you participate in the interactive areas of the Services.

We may share your personal data with service providers (for example, payment card processors) and contractors that we have retained to perform Services or work on our behalf. These parties are provided only with the minimum personal data needed to perform their functions, are not permitted to process personal data for any other purposes unless required by law, and are obliged to have adequate technical and organizational security measures.

In addition, we may disclose your personal data to courts, law enforcement authorities, and other government bodies if we are required to do so by law or legal process or if we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity.

We reserve the right to transfer your personal data in the event we sell or transfer all or a part of our business or assets. Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable endeavours to direct the subsequent owner to use your personal data in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy. 
We may also share aggregated or de-identified information, which cannot reasonably be used to identify you for statistical purposes.

We do not sell or otherwise disclose personal data about you, except as described here or as permitted or required by law.


We process location information through our mobile applications in order to provide you with alerts, messages, push notifications, and similar messages and notifications when you are near locations we think may be of interest to you. Such points of interest may be within or outside or our venue and may relate to services we think will be of interest to you but which may be offered by third-party affiliates.

When you first launch any of our mobile applications that collect location information, you will be asked to consent to the application's collection of this information. If you initially consent to our collection of location information, you can subsequently stop the collection of this information at any time by changing the preferences on your mobile device. If you do so, our mobile applications, or certain features thereof, will no longer function. You may also stop our collection of location information by following the standard uninstall process to remove our mobile application from your device. We will continue to collect location information until you change the preferences on your phone, or uninstall the mobile applications as mentioned above.


The Services may offer social sharing features and other integrated tools (such as the Facebook "Like" button), which let you share actions you take on our Services with other media, and vice versa. The use of such features enables the sharing of information with your friends or the public, depending on the settings you establish with the entity that provides the social sharing feature. For more information about the purpose and scope of data collection and processing in connection with social sharing features, please visit the privacy policies of the entities that provide these features.


Your personal data will be processed in the United Kingdom and/or in other states of the European Economic Area (EEA). From time to time we may also transfer your personal data to countries outside the EEA which do not offer data protection standards comparable to those within the EEA. If we transfer your personal data to a country outside the EEA we shall do so in full compliance with applicable data protection law.


Our Services may provide links to other websites and services for your convenience and information. These other websites and services may operate independently of us. Linked sites may have their own privacy notices and terms of use in place, which we strongly suggest you review if you visit any linked websites or services. To the extent any linked websites or services you visit are unrelated to our Services, we are not responsible for them.


We maintain administrative, technical, organisational and physical safeguards to protect against loss, misuse or unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration or destruction of the personal data that you provide when you use our Services.


In accordance with our obligations under the Data Protection Act 1998 we provide users with access to personal data we hold and respect users’ rights to review, correct, and delete their data where appropriate. Requests made by users for access to their data may be subject to a fee. To help protect your privacy and security, we will always take steps to verify your identity, such as requiring a password and user ID, before granting access to your personal data.
