How and why we process personal data
Controllership and types of personal data we may hold about you
When you access Quayticket’s webpages we host, we collect personal data (such as your IP address and information about your device’s characteristics and capabilities) which forms part of the Usage Information we hold about you. We collect this Usage Information primarily via cookies and related technologies and we act as an independent data controller in relation to it. Where we share this personal data with others, they will also act as independent data controllers. Please refer to the section How and with whom we share personal data.
The term “cookie” refers to one or more small pieces of information stored on or provided by your computer or device when you access online information. Your browser or device sends these cookies back to us every time you visit our pages, or it sends the cookies to another webpage that recognises the cookie, so each page can recognise you and can then, for example, tailor what you see on the screen. Other technologies, which are sometimes, called pixel tags and device fingerprinting work in a similar manner.
We combine this Usage Information with some of your Account Information (such as your device’s MAC address) for the purposes described below.
Purposes and legal bases
The primary purpose for which we use and share personal data in this context is to deliver and help personalise the advertisements you see. This includes advertisements on other websites you visit, apps you use or media you see (such as on social media, TV or online). This is in our legitimate interest as we want to ensure that the advertisements that are delivered to you are effective (for example, that the number of times you see the same ad is limited) and delivered to the right audiences.
We do not currently process personal data in the context of automated decision-making or profiling that would produce legal or other significant effects for you. If that changes at any time in the future, we will notify you beforehand as required.
How and with whom we share personal data
As explained in the section entitled “How and why we process personal data”, we may share your Usage Information combined with some of your Account Information with third party advertisers so that they can deliver or personalise the advertisements you see. Such as:
• Google Display Network (GDN)
• Google Ads

You can learn more about all the cookies we use in the cookies list below.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies optional cookies which are used for analytics and marketing purposes. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of our website. For example a session cookie stores your username and password for future use, so you would need to input this information each time you access the website.
What cookies we use
We use a number of different types of cookies on the site:
We use a session cookie to remember your log-in details and what you’ve put in the shopping basket. These we deem strictly necessary to the working of the website. If these are disabled then various functionality on the site will not work, for example we will not be able to tailor content to you, we will be unable to count your site usage in our statistics and therefore be unable to develop the website in line with your needs.

There is no way to prevent these cookies being set other than to not use our site.
We have a number of partners who promote our service on a success-only basis (i.e. instead of paying for advertising, we pay them commissions on sales). Cookies are required to allow us to reward these partners and these cookies are usually provided by specialist companies (known as affiliate networks). Neither us, the networks, or the partner advertising or recommending our services are able to identify you personally. We ask you to support us by allowing these cookies which ultimately help us to offer you the service we do at the price we do.
