Please read these Terms & Conditions (or “Terms”) carefully. By accessing or using Billetto, you accept to be bound by the Terms.
You are hereby contracting with:
Billetto UK Limited
60 Goswell Road
EC1M 7AD London
VAT Registration no. GB157940286
All notices shall be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Billetto may sometimes provide Users with services not described in these Terms & Conditions. These Terms still apply to such services, unless there’s a separate and signed contract that explicitly states otherwise.
These Terms are a legally binding agreement between you and Billetto and outline your rights and responsibilities while using our Services. If you are using the Services on behalf of another person or business, you agree that these Terms also apply to that party.
Billetto provides the following services:
Complete descriptions of specific services can be found on the relevant Billetto sites.
Billetto does not create, organise, or own the events listed on the Services. The Organiser is solely responsible for making sure that the event page and the event itself comply with all applicable laws and that any products and services offered on their event page are delivered according to their description.
Billetto collects payments made by Consumers via third-party payment service providers and passes such payments to the Organiser (as defined in the Merchant Agreement).
Orders will be processed after User’s billing information has been verified. The User will receive an email confirmation of a successfully processed order shortly after the transaction is completed.
If the User does not receive an email confirmation or experiences an error message or service interruption after submitting payment information, it is the User’s responsibility to confirm with Billetto whether or not the order has been placed by contacting our customer support at the address provided below or emailing us at email@example.com.
Users hereby authorise Billetto to charge or debit their payment card or other account for the face value of any tickets purchase, as well as any fees or other charges (such as taxes) that may be due in connection with any transactions requested through Billetto.
Billetto tickets can represent goods, tokens, services, or traditional tickets. Tickets will always be distributed in electronic format to the email a User enters in connection with the purchase.
Billetto will send a receipt to the User’s email immediately after purchase. If a User has not received the tickets one hour after purchase, the User can contact Billetto support.
Users must print their tickets and bring them to the event, unless the organiser has stated otherwise. For larger events, the organiser can choose to use Billetto’s scanners, which enable mobile tickets as well.
If a User does not inform us of the non-receipt of tickets within a reasonable time (and at least 72 hours before the event), we will have no liability to the User. Physical delivery of tickets, where available and applicable, is subject to the delivery company terms.
As an Organiser, you agree to comply with all applicable laws regarding collection of consumer information, as well as any related policies posted on the Services.
These Terms remain in effect until they are terminated. When this agreement is terminated by either party, these Terms will generally no longer apply. However, certain provisions will at all times remain applicable to both Users and Billetto. (See below)
Billetto may at any time terminate a User’s right to use the Services if the User violates these Terms, misuses or abuses the Services, or if permitting the use of the Services would violate any applicable laws or expose Billetto to legal liability.
Billetto may at any time decide to stop offering the Services, in full or in part. We will use reasonable efforts to give Users notice of such termination. Users agree that Billetto is not liable to them or third parties as a result of terminated access to the Services.
Unless otherwise stated in a separate agreement a User may terminate access to the Services and applicability of these Terms by deleting his or her account.
Consumers without a registered account may at any point terminate these Terms by stopping to use the Services. As long as Consumers continue to access the Services, these Terms remain in effect.
Any provisions that by their nature should survive termination of these Terms will do so.
Users agree to cover Billetto if their use of the Services causes Billetto to face legal or other claims or expenses.
Users hereby agree to release Billetto from any damages and losses arising out of a dispute between Users and a third party (including other Users) in connection with events listed on the Services or the Services themselves.
Users agree to indemnify and hold Billetto and its representatives harmless from any and all damages or losses that result from any claim, suit, or other proceeding made by any third party relating to Users’ breach of these Terms, use of the Services in violation of these Terms, or breach of applicable laws and regulations.
Billetto strives to provide the Services as expected by the Users, but certain things cannot be guaranteed.
The Services are provided “as is.” Billetto expressly disclaims all warranties of any kind. Billetto makes no warranty that the Services will meet a User’s requirements or be uninterrupted, secure, and error-free.
Users agree that Billetto has no control over and cannot guarantee the quality, accuracy, safety, or legality of any event or Content provided by Users.
Billetto is not responsible for any liability arising from acts or omissions by any third party that Billetto requires to provide the Services.
Consumers understand that certain events may carry intrinsic risk, and that participation in those events implies voluntary acceptance of those risks.
The foregoing disclaimers apply to the maximum extent permitted by law.
To the extent permitted by applicable laws, Billetto and entities associated with Billetto’s provision of Services will not be liable to Users or third parties for any damages.
Any warranty or right that by law cannot be excluded or limited is not excluded or limited by these Terms. Only those liability limitations which are lawful in your jurisdiction will apply.
Billetto grants Users a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable right to use our Services in their capacity as either Consumer (to discover and attend events) or Organiser (to create events and sell tickets).
Organisers’ and Consumers’ use of the Services must comply with these Terms and any applicable laws.
Users agree that they will not copy or create derivatives of the Services, reverse engineer any part of the Services, use the Services for any commercial purposes not explicitly specified, remove or alter any proprietary notices on the Services, or in any way interfere with or disrupt the Services.
Users agree that all Site Content may be protected by copyrights, trademarks, or other intellectual property laws. Billetto may own the Site Content or portions of the Site Content may be made available to Billetto through arrangements with third parties.
Site Content included in or made available through the Services is the exclusive property of Billetto and is protected by copyright laws. Users agree to use the Site Content only for purposes permitted by these Terms and any applicable laws. Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved.
The trademarks, service marks and logos of Billetto used in connection with the Services are registered and unregistered trademarks or service marks of Billetto. Other company, product, and service names used in connection with the Services may be trademarks or service marks owned by third parties.
Users do not have license or right to use any displayed Trademark without prior written consent of Billetto.
The Trademarks may not be used to disparage Billetto or any third party or in a manner that may damage any goodwill in the Trademarks.
Use of any Trademarks as part of a link to or from any site is prohibited without Billetto’s prior written consent.
All goodwill generated from the use of any Billetto Trademark will inure to Billetto's benefit. A number of issued and pending patents apply to the Services. Site Content may also be protected by copyrights owned by Billetto and/or third parties. Users that copy portions of the Services are in violation of these patent rights and copyrights.
If you are an Organiser, you represent and warrant to us that:
If you are a copyright owner or represent a copyright owner and you believe that any content on the Sites infringes your copyrights, you may submit a notice to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Site Content is not for commercial use by the Users. Users have no right to and agree not to use any Site Content for their own commercial purposes or to use any means to extract data from the Site(s).
It is free for Users to create an account, list an event, or access the Services. However, sale of paid tickets or registrations carries a fee. Fees may vary based on individual agreements between Billetto and certain Organisers.
Organisers may choose to pass the fees along to Consumers, in which case these will be shown as “Fees” on the applicable event page. Organisers may also choose to instead absorb the fees into the ticket or registration price and pay these fees out of gross ticket proceeds.
Consumers may be charged other fees including taxes, ticket insurance, etc. Therefore, the total fee paid by Consumers may be different from the fees charged by Billetto to the applicable Organiser or the standard fees described on the Services to Organisers.
Billetto does not control or have information about fees charged by an individual User’s bank or credit card company. Users must check with their bank or credit card company in order to understand all applicable fees, surcharges, and currency conversion rates prior to transacting on Billetto.
If you wish to transfer tickets to an event you have purchased on Billetto, please follow the instructions on the “How do I transfer tickets to a friend?” page.
All ticket transactions are between an Organiser and respective Consumers. Therefore, Consumers must contact the applicable Organiser with any refund requests. You can find help with getting a refund here.
Consumers that receive a refund must discard any previously delivered ticket(s) and not use it to attend the event. Violating this constitutes fraud. Organisers are expected to follow all applicable procedures to verify the validity of tickets. Billetto will not be held liable for any costs arising from a failure by Organisers to check validity of tickets or for any costs and damages arising from fraud or purchase of tickets via non-official means.
Before purchasing tickets, it is the Consumer’s responsibility to carefully review all aspects of the event, including event restriction, dates, pricing, and charges. Billetto will not issue any refunds for any lost, stolen, destroyed, or damaged tickets, or as under any other circumstances except in the limited cases explicitly described in this Agreement.
Even if a refund is issued by Organiser, Billetto’s Fees will be deducted from the refund amount. The User may apply for a refund prior to the event in question provided that tickets for the event remain on sale. Acceptance of refunds is determined by the event's refund policy and it is the customer's responsibility to check this policy with the Organiser prior to purchasing the ticket. Should an event be cancelled, the Organiser of the event will inform the User prior to such cancellation and will refund to the User the ticket price minus the transaction fee and the Billetto Fee.
Billetto requires Users to register for an account in order to access certain features and functionality. Users agree to follow certain rules when creating an account, including the following:

• If you are using the Services on behalf of a company or other entity, we expect that you have the authority to legally bind that entity and grant all permissions and licenses provided in these Terms.

Users are solely responsible for all activity taking place under their account, including that by sub-users. Users must keep all relevant passwords and account details confidential. Rules that apply to the User’s account will apply equally to any third parties to whom the User grants account access.
• Users agree to promptly notify Billetto in case of any unauthorised use of their account or any other breach of security. Users are responsible and will be held accountable for any activity occurring under their account.

The stipulations in this Merchant Agreement are incorporated into the Billetto Terms & Conditions by reference. No part of this Merchant Agreement will be deemed to modify in any manner any part of the Terms & Conditions.
This Merchant Agreement contains important information about the terms governing Billetto’s relationship with Organisers using our Services. Please read this Merchant Agreement carefully.
Definitions used in this agreement are explained in our Terms & Conditions.
This Merchant Agreement outlines the terms and conditions that apply to Organisers using the Services to manage their events and ticketing. By accepting the Terms & Conditions, you agree to the terms of this Merchant Agreement and enter into a binding contract with Billetto.
If an Organiser creates a paid event on the Services, Billetto may require the Organiser to provide additional information about themselves or any entity they represent (“Additional Registration Details”). Organisers agree to provide such information in a timely and complete manner and to ensure it stays accurate by maintaining it.
Organiser grants Billetto permission to share information relating to Organiser’s events and transactions on the Services with Billetto’s Payment Processing Partners and Organiser’s bank, where necessary.
Billetto reserves the right to suspend an Organiser’s account and to withhold any amounts due to Organiser if Organiser fails to provide accurate information or to do so within the specified timeframe.
3.1.1 Method of Payment
Billetto collects Ticket Proceeds on behalf of the Organiser and thereby acts as a limited payment collection agent through its own Payment Processing Partners. This is referred to as “Billetto Payment Processing” (“BPP”).
3.1.2 Role of Billetto
Other than acting as a limited collection agent on behalf of the Organiser, Billetto does not offer any banking, deposit taking, or similar financial services.
To facilitate BPP, Billetto relies on third-party gateways, payment processors, merchant acquirers, etc. ("Payment Processing Partners"). The rules and regulations of such Payment Processing Partners apply to both Billetto and Organisers.
Organisers may be shown a balance of Ticket Proceeds for their events when logging in to their Billetto account. Please note that this balance represents only a general unsecured claim against Billetto and not a store of value.
3.1.3 Confirmation Messages
Once a Consumer successfully places an order through Billetto, we will generate a confirmation message with a unique confirmation number for that Consumer’s order.
Organiser agrees to unconditionally honour such orders confirmed by Billetto. It is Organiser's duty to verify a Consumer's confirmation number or any event restrictions prior to the event taking place.
3.1.4 Applicable Fees
Billetto charges a service fee (“Billetto Service Fee”) for facilitating the sale of tickets, paid registrations, collections of donations, and sale of merchandise. Organiser agrees to pay the Billetto Service Fee by absorbing it in the ticket price. Alternatively, Organiser may decide that Consumers will pay the Billetto Service Fee, in which case such fee will be added to the total order price in addition to the ticket face value.
The Billetto Service Fee varies by country and processing currency. The current fees can be found here. Note that these fees are subject to change, which will be reflected accordingly.
Organisers may request additional Services such as marketing, equipment leasing, printed tickets, and so. Any such Services are provided at Billetto’s discretion and are covered by a separate written agreement. These additional Services may incur separate fees (“Secondary Fees”), which will be communicated to the Organiser before Organiser’s acceptance of these Services. The Billetto Service Fee and the Secondary Fees are collectively referred to as “Fees.”
Billetto may offer and charge Consumers for optional add-on services such as ticket insurance, postal delivery, and mobile ticket receipts. Fees for such services are not passed on to Organisers. Billetto has sole discretion to set and collect such fees from Consumers.
Payment processing takes place via Billetto’s Payment Processing Partners. Billetto transfers all Ticket Proceeds to the bank specified by the Organiser within five (5) business days after the event is successfully completed. It depends on the Organiser’s bank when the transfer will be visible on the Organiser’s account. This transfer is subject to:
All payouts are made exclusively to the payout account provided by the Organiser on the Services under “Bank Details.” Organisers agree that Billetto relies solely on the bank details provided to facilitate the transfer of Ticket Proceeds, even if these details are inaccurate. Organisers agree to reimburse Billetto for any losses that result from our reliance on provided bank details.
3.2.2 Billetto as a Collection Agent
Organiser hereby appoints Billetto as a limited payment collection agent for the sole purpose of collecting payments made by Consumers for Organiser’s events through Billetto’s Payment Processing Partners.
All payments made by a Consumer to Billetto are to be considered the same as payments made directly to Organiser. Organiser will provide all advertised goods and services to the Consumer as if Organiser had directly received the Ticket Proceeds from such Consumer, even where Billetto is yet to transfer such Ticket Proceeds.
Organiser agrees that in its role as limited agent, Billetto is authorised to:
Billetto assumes no liability for Organiser’s acts or omissions. Organiser understands that Billetto's obligation to transfer Ticket Proceeds to the Organiser is conditional upon receiving these Ticket Proceeds from Consumers.
All Ticket Proceeds for a given event are earned by Organiser only after the conclusion of the applicable event.
If agreed upon in a separate written agreement, Billetto may transfer a portion of Ticket Proceeds to Organiser prior to completion of the applicable event (“Prepayments”). Organiser agrees that such Prepayments are merely advances of amounts that may become due to Organiser.
Billetto may at any time terminate or suspend Organiser's right to receive Prepayments or alter the terms of such Prepayments made to Organiser. In addition, Billetto may demand back such Prepayments depending on refunds, chargebacks, customer complaints, suspicions of fraud, any breaches of the Terms & Conditions and this Merchant Agreement, and similar reasons. In such cases, Organiser is to promptly pay back the amount demanded.
3.2.4 Event Cancellations & Failure to Perform
In case of a cancelled event or risk of cancellation and other non-performance, Billetto will make no payments to the Organiser, unless Billetto receives adequate security for Organiser's obligations under this Merchant Agreement.
No Ticket Proceeds will be earned until the event is successfully completed. If a Prepayment has already been made to an Organiser of a cancelled event, that Organiser is to promptly return such Prepayment to facilitate any refunds. If an Organiser fails to remit an amount sufficient to cover refunds, Organiser agrees that this amount will become due and owing from the Organiser to Billetto, until it has been repaid in full.
3.2.5 Right of Setoff & Reserves
Billetto has the right to retain a percentage of fees to fund a reserve as necessary to secure the performance of Organiser’s obligations or to protect Billetto against fraudulent or erroneous activity.
This right to hold a reserve will be in place until Organiser discharges all its obligations under any applicable agreements with Billetto or otherwise provides Billetto with adequate security for such obligations.
The reserve is also subject to the right of setoff. If any such setoff does not fully cover the amount due by the Organiser under any applicable agreement, this amount will become due and owing from the Organiser to Billetto, until it has been repaid in full.
3.2.6 Chargebacks & Reversals
Organiser is liable for any credit card chargebacks and similar transaction reversals against Billetto with respect to Organiser’s events, except where such chargebacks are caused solely by Billetto’s negligence or wilful misconduct. Organiser is also liable for any additional fees incurred by Billetto in connection with such chargebacks. When asked to do so, Organiser agrees to promptly and fully reimburse Billetto for such amounts.
Billetto will use reasonable efforts to represent such chargebacks and reversals on behalf of the Organiser. Organiser agrees to use reasonable efforts to cooperate with Billetto in case of such representment. However, Billetto has no obligation to represent any chargeback it believes it is likely to lose or if the that relates to a transaction that is to be refunded according to refund policy.
BPP Service is only available for certain currencies and for Organisers in certain locations. Ticket Proceeds collected in a currency may only be transferred to Organiser in that currency. Billetto does not offer currency conversions. Different payment processing options may be available depending on the currency and location.
Additional terms apply if the Organiser elects to use the “E-Invoicing” option.
If “E-invoicing” is enabled, Consumers will have the option to select “Pay with E-Invoice” as a method of payment during checkout. In such cases, Billetto will collect Consumer data necessary to issue the invoice and pass this data on to the Organiser.
It is the Organiser’s responsibility to:
Once an order is marked as “Paid,” Billetto will send the order confirmation and issue a ticket to the Consumer in accordance with Terms & Conditions and this Merchant agreement. Please note that with “E-Invoicing,” the transaction takes place solely between Organiser and the applicable Consumer. Billetto does not facilitate and is not liable for this transaction.
3.3.1 Refund Policy & Process
Any and all refunds relate solely to the face value of the ticket. Additional Fees such as the Billetto Service Fee are not refunded.
It is up to the Organiser to set and communicate the Organiser’s refund policy, as long as it does not conflict with the Terms & Conditions, this Merchant Agreement, or any other agreement between Billetto and the Organiser. Such refund policy must also follow the minimum requirements as set out in Organiser Refund Policy Requirements.
Refunds must be approved by Organiser and will be processed by Billetto. In case of cancellation or non-performance of an event, refunds are subject to the following requirements:
3.3.2 Disputes Regarding Refunds
All disputes regarding refunds are between Organiser and its Consumers. Billetto may try to mediate a dispute, but it is the Organiser’s obligation to settle such a dispute. At all times, Billetto will have the right to make refunds on Organiser’s behalf as outlined below.
3.3.3 Mandatory Refunds
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Organiser authorises Billetto to make refunds in the following situations:
Billetto is also authorised to make refunds if it believes in its sole discretion that:
Organiser agrees to promptly and fully reimburse Billetto for any refunds made, other than where such refunds arise out of Billetto's negligence or willful misconduct.
If an Organiser does not remit funds to Billetto that are sufficient to cover such mandatory refunds, this amount will become due and owing from the Organiser to Billetto, until it has been repaid in full.
3.4.1 Non-Exclusive Remedies
If Organiser fails to pay any amount owed to Billetto in accordance with any applicable agreement for the Services provided, Billetto may to the extent permitted by applicable law:
Organiser agrees to pay such invoiced amounts within thirty (30) days after the date of the invoice. If such payment is not made by Organiser, Billetto reserves the right to suspend or terminate Organiser's registration for any Services provided by Billetto. Additionally, such unpaid amounts are subject to collections.
3.4.2 Collections & Costs of Recovery
Billetto reserves the right to pursue any unpaid amount for collections if such amount is not paid within thirty (30) days after the invoice date. Upon demand, Organiser agrees to promptly and fully reimburse Billetto for costs incurred in collecting any amounts due under applicable agreements between Billetto and Organiser.
If Organiser does not respond to a collection notice, Billetto reserves the right to pursue outstanding amount owed through applicable legal means.
Organisers are solely responsible for determining which taxes, duties, etc. apply to Organiser’s use of the Services, as well as for collecting and reporting the correct amount to applicable authorities.
If Biletto is required by a governmental authority to pay any taxes attributable to Organiser’s use of the Services, Organiser agrees to promptly and fully reimburse Billetto for the taxes and any expenses related to them.
Due to sales tax regulations of the European Union (the "EU"), Billetto is required to collect Value Added Tax ("VAT") from all Ticket Proceeds and Fees. It is Organiser’s responsibility to remit applicable Ticket Proceeds VAT to the relevant tax authority. We collect VAT in accordance with the standard VAT rate in the applicable country. The actual VAT rate may depend on numerous factors and is evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
If there is no activity on an Organiser’s account for a period of time specified in applicable unclaimed property laws and Billetto holds funds related to the account, Billetto will give Organiser due notice as required by applicable laws.
If the funds are unclaimed within the timeframe stated in the notice, Billetto will dispense with the funds in accordance to applicable laws.
Organisers may not post events or engage in activities on the Services that:
Any event falling into the above category is considered a “Prohibited Event.”
Organisers may not use BPP to process any of the following transactions:
Any transaction falling into any of the above categories is considered a "Prohibited Transaction."
If Organiser posts a Prohibited Event or processes or attempts to process a Prohibited Transaction, Billetto may take any or all of the following actions, as well as pursue other remedies allowed by applicable laws:
Organisers represent and warrant to Billetto that:
Organisers represent and acknowledge that they (not Billetto) are solely responsible for correctly ticketing their events and only honouring valid tickets. Organisers understand and agree that Billetto is not liable for any costs arising from Organisers honouring presented tickets that are invalid or procured through deceptive practices.
In addition to other provisions detailed in Terms & Conditions, Billetto may terminate this Merchant Agreement and Organiser’s right to use the Services if:
Organisers of paid events hosted on Billetto are subject to the following Refund Policy Requirements. The rights and obligations within these Refund Policy Requirements are in addition to and are incorporated into the Terms & Conditions by reference.
Refund policies vary between Organisers. That’s why Billetto Organisers are given flexibility to publish their own refund policies policies with respect to their events. However, any such policy must meet the following minimum requirements:
If no refund policy is posted or a policy does not meet these minimum requirements, Billetto may modify such policy to meet these requirements. Modification may involve prospectively making changes to the Organiser's posted refund policy or retroactively applying such changes in case of a dispute, chargeback, or refund request.
To initiate a refund request, Consumers should contact the Organiser directly by following the directions in the applicable refund policy posted by the Organiser. If the policy does not include such contact information, Consumer should use the “Contact Organiser” button on the event page. Organiser agrees to administer its refund policy in accordance with the terms outlined on the applicable event page and the “Minimum Requirements” stated above.
When a Consumer requests a refund and the Organiser does not respond by either refunding or denying the request after seven (7) days, Billetto may execute the refund on behalf of the Organiser.
If an Organiser fails to honour a refund request that complies with the applicable refund policy, the Consumer may request that Billetto initiate a refund by contacting us. Billetto will review the case and determine whether a refund is justified. Billetto will aim to complete its review within thirty (30) days of being contacted by the Consumer. Billetto’s decisions with respect to these Refund Policy Requirements shall be final and binding on both Organiser and Consumer.
These Refund Policy Requirements do not constitute an offer to guarantee or insure the performance of any Organiser. There is no guarantee that refunds will be issued in any given situation.
This Data Processing Addendum ("DPA") applies to Organisers who are subject to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (2016/EC/679) or "GDPR" and require Billetto to process Personal Data on their behalf as part of Organiser's use of the Services. Refer to Terms & Conditions for further information.
In this DPA references to "you" means the Organiser and references to "we", "us", "our" and "Billetto" means Billetto.
The terms of this DPA are hereby incorporated into any other applicable service agreement between Organiser and Billetto ("Agreement"). With regard to the processing of Personal Data, if there is a conflict between the Agreement and this DPA, the DPA will control.
However, if Organiser and Billetto have negotiated separate data processing terms that differ from this DPA but fully meet all requirements of Applicable Data Protection Laws, those negotiated terms will control.
The terms "Data Controller", "Data Processor", "Data Subject", "Processing" and "Personal Data" have the meanings ascribed to them in Applicable Data Protection Laws.
"Data Security Breach" means a breach of security that results in accidental or unlawful destruction, alteration, or unauthorised access or disclosure of any Personal Data.
"Technical and Organisational Security Measures" refers to measures taken by Billetto to protect Personal Data against unauthorised Processing and accidental loss or disclosure,
For the purposes of Applicable Data Protection Laws, an Organiser using Billetto is a Data Controller of the Personal Data associated with an individual using Billetto Services to register for or purchase a ticket to attend such Organiser's event ("Consumer"). Organiser agrees to Process such Personal Data in accordance with Organiser's obligations under Applicable Data Protection Laws.
Where Billetto Processes the Personal Data of Consumers on behalf of Organiser as part of the Services, Billetto is a Data Processor in performing such Processing and Organiser is the Data Controller. This includes circumstances where Billetto obtains Personal Data as a result of the provision of its core ticketing services, such as processing payments, providing reports and tools to help Organisers gain insights into their sales channels, etc.
In respect of some Processing of Consumers' Personal Data, Billetto may act as a Data Controller, such as where Consumers engage with Billetto beyond the functions relating to Organiser’s event or where Billetto conducts research and analysis to improve its products and features.
To the extent that Billetto Processes Personal Data as a Data Processor on behalf of Organiser, Section 2 of this DPA shall apply. When Billetto is acting as a Data Controller of Consumers' Personal Data, Billetto's Processing shall not be subject to this DPA. Such data is processed by IT systems specified in the “Billetto Sub-Processors” list.
Details about the Personal Data to be Processed by Billetto and the Processing activities to be performed under the Agreement are as follows:
2.1 Whenever Billetto Processes Personal Data on behalf of Organiser, Billetto shall:
2.1.1 Process Personal Data only on the documented instructions of Organiser, unless required to do otherwise by applicable law. Billetto shall inform Organiser of the legal requirement before Processing Personal Data other than in accordance with Organiser's instructions, unless that same law prohibits Billetto from doing so on important grounds of public interest. Billetto will notify Organiser if in its opinion an instruction is in breach of Applicable Data Protection Laws. Organiser hereby instructs Billetto, and Billetto hereby agrees, to Process Personal Data as necessary to perform Billetto's obligations under the Agreement and for no other purpose.
2.1.2 Have in place Technical and Organisational Security Measures to protect Personal Data.
2.1.3 Notify Organiser in the event of a Data Security Breach without undue delay and provide cooperation and assistance to Organiser to enable Organiser to comply with its obligations as a Data Controller in relation to data breach notification requirements.
2.1.4 Ensure that its personnel are subject to binding obligations of confidentiality with respect to Personal Data.
2.1.5 Impose obligations on its sub-processors that have access to Personal Data that are the same as or equivalent to those set out in this Section 2 and remain fully liable to Organiser for any failure by a sub-processor to fulfil its obligations in relation to the Personal Data.
2.1.6 Provide reasonable assistance to Organiser in responding to rights requests under Applicable Data Protection Laws, complaints, or other communications received from any data protection authority or individual who is the subject of any Personal Data Processed by Billetto. In the event that a Consumer submits a Personal Data deletion request to Billetto, Organiser hereby instructs and authorises Billetto to delete or anonymise the Consumer's Personal Data on Organiser's behalf.
2.1.7 Upon Organiser's written request, make available to Organiser all information reasonably necessary to demonstrate its compliance with the obligations set out in this Section 2, and allow for and cooperate with any audits.
2.1.8 Except for that Personal Data with respect to which Billetto acts as a Data Controller, return, delete, or destroy the Personal Data and copies thereof, at Organiser's request (unless applicable law requires the storage of such Personal Data or when the contract is terminated).
2.1.9 Transfer of Personal data to a third country
The Data Controller accepts that Data Processor may transfer personal data to a third country, i.e. a country outside the EU. Data Processor will be required to ensure that such transfer is at all times lawful, including that there is an adequate level of protection of the transferred personal data. Same obligation applies in relation to Data Processor's use of sub-processors in third countries.
2.2 Organiser hereby consents to Billetto's use of sub-processors listed on Billetto's website to Process Personal Data on its behalf.
2.3 Organiser hereby consents to Billetto appointing additional and replacement sub-processors ("Replacement Sub-Processors") to Process Personal Data on its behalf.
Billetto shall give notice to Organiser of the identity of Replacement Sub-Processors via Billetto's website. Organiser is responsible for regularly checking and reviewing Billetto's website for any such changes and Billetto's website shall be the sole means of Billetto communicating any such changes.
See Terms & Conditions.
This Data Processing Addendum ("DPA") shall govern any services provided to Billetto and its Affiliates ("Billetto") by you ("you," "your," or "Vendor") as a Processor or Sub-processor (as defined below) (the "Services").
You and Billetto shall each be referred to herein as a "Party" and together as "Parties.” This DPA supplements, is incorporated into, and will remain in effect for the term of any agreement between the Parties. The Parties agree as follows:
Capitalised terms used but not defined in this DPA shall have the same meanings as set out in the Agreement, if applicable. For the purposes of this DPA:
1.1 "Affiliate(s)" means any person or entity that controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with such entity.

Any Billetto Data that is Personal Data is hereby referred to as "Billetto Personal Data".
1.6 "Personal Data" means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.
1.7 "Processor" means an entity that processes Personal Data on behalf of, and in accordance with the instructions of, a Controller.
1.8 "Sub-processor" means an entity engaged by a Processor who agrees to receive from the Processor Personal Data exclusively intended for the processing activities to be carried out as part of the Services.
1.9 "Vendor" means the individual or entity which has entered into the Agreement with Billetto.
2.1 For purposes of this DPA, Billetto may act as a Controller, or it may act as a Processor of one of its customers. Vendor therefore acknowledges that it may act as a Processor of Billetto or a Sub-processor of Billetto. Where Billetto acts as a Processor, Billetto is obligated contractually and / or under Applicable Privacy Laws to flow down certain data protection related obligations to its appointed Sub-processors. Therefore all obligations placed on Processors in this DPA shall apply to Vendor regardless of whether Vendor acts as a Processor or Sub-processor.
2.2. The nature, purpose and subject matter of Vendor's data processing activities performed as part of the Services are set out in the Agreement. The Personal Data that may be processed may relate to event organisers, attendees, employees, contractors, and contacts and may include name, email address, billing and payment information, events booked, organised, and attended and any other Personal Data that may be processed pursuant to the Agreement.
3.1 Vendor warrants and undertakes to process Billetto Personal Data only for the limited and specified purposes set out in the Agreement and/or as otherwise lawfully instructed by Billetto in writing (email or otherwise), except where otherwise required by applicable law. Vendor will immediately inform Billetto if, in its opinion, an instruction is in breach of Applicable Privacy Laws.
3.2 Where Vendor processes Billetto Personal Data originating from the EU, EEA, the UK and/or Switzerland, and Vendor transfers such Billetto Personal Data to a country not deemed by the European Commission as providing adequate protection for Personal Data, Vendor warrants and agrees to: (i) comply with its obligations under Applicable Privacy Laws; and (ii) provide at least the same level of protection to Billetto Personal Data as is required by the Privacy Shield Principles and/or as Billetto may otherwise reasonably require, in accordance with Applicable Privacy Laws, to ensure an adequate level of protection for Billetto Personal Data. Vendor agrees to notify Billetto promptly in writing of its inability to meet its obligations and to take all reasonable and appropriate measures to remedy any non-compliance and/or cease processing Billetto Personal Data, as determined by Billetto in its sole discretion.
Where Vendor has not certified to the Privacy Shield Framework Principles, Vendor warrants and agrees to: (i) the Standard Contractual Clauses as defined here and (ii) implement the necessary technical and organisational security measures before processing the Billetto Personal Data.
4.1 Vendor shall ensure that any person that it authorises to process the Billetto Data (including Vendor's staff, agents and subcontractors) shall be subject to a duty of confidentiality.
4.2 Vendor shall ensure it implements and maintains throughout the term of the Agreement, or duration of its services to Billetto as a Processor or Sub-processor, appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect Billetto Data, including protection against Data Breaches. Where Vendor is Privacy Shield certified, in accordance with Section 3 of this DPA, such measures shall, at a minimum, include at least the same level of privacy protection as is required by the Privacy Shield Principles.
Vendor shall notify Billetto of any Sub-processors it uses in respect of Billetto Personal Data, and Vendor shall:
Vendor will provide at Vendor’s expense all assistance reasonably required by Billetto to enable Billetto to:
On reasonable prior written notice, Vendor agrees to provide Billetto (or its appointed auditors) with all information Billetto deems reasonably necessary for Billetto to audit Vendor's compliance with the requirements of this DPA, including completion of audit questionnaires, provision of security policies and summaries of assessments of compliance with any industry standards, penetration testing, and vulnerability scans. All such auditing is at Vendor’s expense.
In the event of a Data Breach, Vendor will take only the following actions (unless authorised by Billetto):
8.1 Promptly notify Billetto without undue delay (and latest within 24 hours of becoming aware of the Data Breach) and provide Billetto with a reasonably detailed description of the Data Breach, the type of data that was the subject of the Data Breach and the identity of each affected person as soon as such information can be collected or otherwise becomes available, as well as any other information that Billetto may reasonably request relating to the Data Breach.
8.2 Promptly (and latest beginning within 24 hours of becoming aware of the Data Breach) investigate the Data Breach, make reasonable efforts to mitigate the effects and harm of the Data Breach in accordance with its obligations under Section 4 above, and provide any other assistance that Billetto may reasonably request relating to the Data Breach.
Upon termination or expiry of this DPA (see Terms & Conditions), Vendor shall (at Billetto's election) destroy or return to Billetto all Billetto Data and copies of such Data in its possession or control (including any Billetto Data subcontracted to a third party for processing), unless any applicable law requires Vendor to retain Billetto Data.
Vendor will indemnify, keep indemnified and hold harmless Billetto, its clients, officers, directors, employees, agents, representatives and Affiliates (each an "Indemnified Party") from and against all third-party loss, harm, cost (including reasonable legal fees and expenses), expense and liability that an Indemnified Party may suffer or incur as a result of Vendor's non-compliance with the requirements of this DPA.
Except for the changes made by this DPA, the Agreement and/or any other agreements related to the Services remain unchanged and in full force and effect.
With respect to provisions regarding processing of Personal Data, in the event of a conflict between the Agreement and this DPA, the provisions of this DPA shall control. In the event of a conflict between this DPA and any other provision of the Agreement between you and us, this DPA will control; except where you and Billetto have individually negotiated data processing terms that are different from this DPA and which meet the requirements of Applicable Privacy Laws in full, in which case those negotiated terms will control.
Billetto works with the below third parties ("Sub-Processors") to provide specific functionality. To perform their functions, these Sub-processors access Personal Data as defined in the Data Processing Addendum for Organisers.
