Information We Collect

Non-personally-identifying information

Like most website operators, we collect your non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. We collect your non-personally-identifying information to better understand how users use our websites.

Potentially personally-identifying information

We collect your potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Although we do not use such information to identify our users, we treat the information in the same manner as we treat personally-identifying information.

Personally-identifying information

We may ask you to provide some personally-identifying information to use certain services that we provide. The specific details of the services and the personally-identifying information we collect are not limited to the following and may be subject to change at any time. These services include but are not limited to: the purchase of tickets for HYPER JAPAN events; registration to our email newsletter; application to take part at the HYPER JAPAN (e.g. exhibition, performance, volunteering). The personally-identifying information that we collect may include your email address, first and last name, age, gender, address, postcode, phone number, occupation, social media accounts, your experience at any HYPER JAPAN, credit or debit card number.

Purchase of HYPER JAPAN tickets

When you purchase tickets for the HYPER JAPAN, either directly from us or through a third-party ticket agent, you may be asked to submit both your personally-identifying and non-personally-identifying information. When purchased through a third-party ticket agent, however, not all the information you submit are provided to us by the agent, and the information provided depends on the terms and conditions of the agent.

If you do not wish to have cookies placed on your computer, you should set your browsers to disable cookies before visiting our websites.

Analysis and Reporting

We aggregate both personally-identifying and non-personally-identifying information we collected for analysis and reporting of our websites and services. For analysis and reports provided for external third parties, the information is aggregated into a collective data form so that each personally-identifying information cannot be identified.

Effective Advertising

We use the information we collect to advertise both our own services and products and that of third parties. The forms of advertisement include but are not limited to website banners, apps, and emails.

Disclosure of the Information

We do not rent, sell, or share any personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes on their marketing channels.
