This information is only processed by Paylogic with the purpose of verifying the identity of the Customer. The event organization can further process this data, on the basis of and under the conditions in its privacy statement.

Email address: In order to be able to send the tickets or to contact the Customer for notification of the status of a transaction, Paylogic will ask the customer for an email address. In addition, we also store any email history between Paylogic and the Customer, which may arise after the purchase and on the initiative of the Customer.

Telephone number: We only request a telephone number to contact the Customer in the event that there is a problem with the order/event and Paylogic Customer Service would like to inform in advance.

Date of birth: A date of birth is required to establish that the purchasing person is old enough to take legal action (general provision for purchases) and/or a visitor is old enough to enter the event.

Additional personal details are requested on behalf of the Organizer and are primarily intended to promote a better event experience for the Customers or to ensure that the event can take place in an orderly and controlled manner.
