A word about terminology and roles:
- Everybody who comes to our site or otherwise uses our Services is a “User”.

- A single Registered User can have multiple roles and can set up multiple profiles in their account on our site.
- Users can buy or reserve tickets to a live event offered through our Services (an “Event”) and attend that Event as an audience member. In that capacity we call you an “Attendee.”
- An Attendee may or may not be a Registered User, and may or may not have set up a profile on our site.
- When you organize an Event, you do so as a “Host” and you use your Host profile to set up and manage the Event.
- When you perform at an Event, you do so as “Talent,” using your Talent profile.
- When you offer physical space for an in-person Event, you do so as a “Venue.”

We may collect certain information about you automatically when you visit or use our online Services. This information may include your IP address, device identifier, browser characteristics, operating system details, language preference, referring URLs, length of visits, and pages viewed.

We may implement Google Analytics Advertising features such as remarketing with analytics, interest-based advertising, demographics and interests reporting, user segment analysis, look-alike modeling and impression reporting. We and third-party vendors may use first-party cookies or other first-party identifiers as well as third-party cookies or other third-party identifiers to provide Gathr with insight into behavior information relating to inferred visitor age, gender, and interests, and to deliver advertisements to you, create a profile of you, measure your interests, detect your demographics, personalize content, and detect online behaviors such as site visitation, dwell time and actions taken.

For example, when you attend an online Event, your name (and video and audio from your webcam or device, if activated) may be visible to Hosts, Talent, other Attendees, and others associated with the event. If an Event is held for the benefit of a nonprofit, that nonprofit may receive some personal information about Attendees, Talent, and Hosts.

This may involve the disclosure of personal information to law enforcement, other governmental entities, or other third parties, depending on the circumstances.

We will store personal information we obtain for no longer than is necessary to achieve the purposes for which the information was collected, or as otherwise required or permitted under applicable law.
LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING (GDPR)
Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), our legal grounds for processing personal information are as follows:
- Legitimate interests: In many cases, we handle personal information on the ground that it furthers our legitimate interests in commercial activities, such as the following, in ways that are not overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the affected individuals:
- Provision of our Services;

- To honor our contractual commitments to an individual: Some of our processing of personal information is done to meet our contractual obligations to the individuals to whom the personal information relates, or to take steps at their request in anticipation of entering into a contract with them.

- Legal compliance: We need to use and disclose personal information in certain ways to comply with our legal obligations.

Depending on the laws of your local jurisdiction, you may have certain rights and additional choices with respect to your information. For example, laws in some countries outside the United States provide certain individuals in such locations the right to ask us to:
- confirm whether we hold personal information about them, and receive information about how it is used and disclosed;
- provide a copy of the personal information (in some cases in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format) or transmit it to a third party;
- update, correct or delete the information;

For example, to the extent our handling of personal information is subject to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), individuals have an absolute right to opt out of our handling of their personal information for direct marketing purposes.
Many of the rights described above are subject to limitations or exceptions under applicable law.

Your personal information may be stored and processed in any country where we, our vendors, or any of the other recipients described in the Sharing of Information section above have operations, including in the United States or in other countries with data protection laws that the European Commission has not recognized as providing an adequate level of privacy protection. Personal information is typically subject to the laws of the country in which it is held, and sometimes also the laws of other countries that have a connection to its processing, such as the source country. For this reason, your personal information may be subject to disclosure to the governments, courts or law enforcement or regulatory agencies of any of the countries described above, The pursuant to the laws of such countries.
