What is personal and non-personal and authorised distribution information?
Personal information about yourself includes your name, address, contact telephone number/s plus any other information you choose to provide us during registration or during your membership period.
You are under no obligation to provide such information. However, if you should choose to withhold certain requested information, we may not be able to provide you with full functionality for certain services.
You can delete/amend personal information at any time, either by using your online personal control panel or by contacting missioncontrol at A2Z.Events by email.
SJ makes every attempt to ensure that our procedures are compliant with privacy regulations in the territories in which we operate.
Non-personal information is predominantly statistical information and other information collected from you in order to administer each digital entity, better understand our customers and therefore help us in future management and improvements to the network and its functionality for you.
Authorised distribution information is information collected about venues, hosts and events, to then disseminate, logically, to relevant eyes, normally provided by the host.
Authorised distribution information is also information collected about you that you authorise us to publish, like your site/app name and profile picture (if you choose to provide one) and lifestyle information.
All information provided for these purposes are deemed authorised distribution information.
When you provide us with personal data about a third party (for example when registering a venue detail on their behalf), you warrant that you have obtained the express consent from the third party for the disclosure and use of this data or that it is information widely available from other sources or common knowledge.
We reserve the right to suspend or delete any member, post, review, thread or listing without discussion or warning.
How is your personal information collected?
You may be asked to provide personal information to become a temporary or more permanent member on any of the sites and apps within the network or to download or interact with any of those entities. The email address and or phone number provided during registration will be used to send you an email/message to which you must reply in order to become a full A2Z member, on that site/app and then many others.
Once you become a fully verified A2Z member, you will be able to log in to, use and interact with many sites and apps upon which you become authorised. Please note some apps/sites may require additional information for full functionality.
As a member you can choose to receive newsletters from one, some, all or none of the community entities. In doing so, you are allowing us to collect personal information. You can amend your choice, free of charge, any time by logging into your control panel and changing options.

When joining the site, as a new member, certain details you will provide will appear on the site in the members section. Additional information may appear with your personal profile.
If you add/amend a profile picture, this will appear with your profile when you join the site.

When using in-network messaging, some personal information may be passed between members.
Your name will appear if you win a prize. Winners names may be associated with the area of origin eg.Joe Bloggs, of Newcastle. For clarity, hosts wanting their events to be published on the network, will be required to sign up as personal members and then are invited to add professional host profile/s.
Professional host profiles can have differing email addresses (and different from your personal email address), allowing the zumba teacher in the morning to also be the pilates instructor in the afternoon and DJ at night, reflecting your different personalities in the gig era. These email addresses by necessity are no longer deemed personal information but authorised distribution information.
Personal details may be transferred or disclosed to any administrative department within the SJ network who we consider best able to carry out the above functions. Your personal account data will not be disclosed to any other member or host unless authorised.

We work closely with several third parties (including business parties, service providers and fraud protection services, hosting services, mailshot delivery service suppliers) and we may exchange information with them about you.
These third parties may collect information about you including, but not limited to, your IP address, device-specific information, server logs, device event information, location information, and unique application numbers. We use their features within our websites and apps, however, in some instances, they may be acting as data controller and they will have their own privacy policies, which we advise you to read.
We may pass your personal data to third parties for the provision of services on our behalf (for example processing any enhanced membership payment) or on behalf of hosts (when introducing their event you). However, we will only ever share information about you that is necessary to provide the service and we have specific contracts in place, which ensure your personal data is secure and will not be used for any marketing purposes. We will not directly see nor collect your payment card details.
We may share your information if we are acquired by a third party and therefore your data will be deemed an asset of the business. In these circumstances, we may disclose your personal data to the prospective buyer of our business, subject to both parties entering into appropriate confidentiality undertakings. Similarly, we may share your personal data if we are under a duty to disclose data in order to comply with any legal obligation or to protect the rights, property, or safety of SJ, our members, our customers, or others. This includes but is not limited to exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection, credit risk reduction and dispute policies.
