b) From telephone, email, written and in-person enquires directed to us: for the purposes of responding to enquires.
c) From business contacts, including contracts and business cards: when you enter into transactions with us or otherwise interact with us in a business context.
d) From online or hard copy surveys: for the purpose of reviewing and analysing the results and following up on results.
e) Any messages or comments submitted to us via the Site which may include personal information such as your name, email address and telephone number.
f) From our primary ticketing agency when individuals have given the ticketing agency permission for the ticketing agency to provide the individuals’ Personal Information to presenters/producers related to the event for the purpose of providing information about future events.
g) From Sites through automatic processes such as cookies. Cookies are used to better understand users and improve the layout and functionality of our Sites by collecting information such as date, time and duration of visits and which pages are most commonly accessed. This tracking is conducted in such a way as to ensure the anonymity of visitors to Sites. While cookies may identify the computer, it should not identify the individual. With most internet browsers, users can erase cookies from their computer’s hard drive, block all cookies or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. However, some parts of this Site may not function fully for users to that disallow cookies.
Our Sites may collect other information that may or may not be personal information. For each visitor to the Site, our server automatically recognises and stores the individual’s “IP address” (eg. the domain name or Internet protocol address), the type of Internet browser being used, the address of the site that “referred” the individual to our website and clickstream data. If this information cannot be used or combined with other data to identify you, it will not be personal information.
