In some instances, Forecastle has partnered with third party vendors that may offer, among other things, merchandise, or push advertisements to you through their own websites. Those third party websites may, with the permission of Forecastle, be skinned to look similar to, or demonstrate an affiliation with, Forecastle. Such third party vendors have a separate privacy policy which you should review carefully if you choose to use the third party website. Use of any such third party website or third party mobile app, and providing information to such third party websites, constitutes your consent to Bonnaroo to collect and use the same information in a manner consistent with this Policy. Note, however, that such third party websites or mobile apps may not recognize or respond to “Do Not Track” headers from web browsers, and therefore it may be necessary to opt-out of such information collection through these third parties, in accordance with their respective privacy policy or policies. Forecastle expressly disclaims any liability for use of information provided to third parties and made available to Forecastle.

If you download the Forecastle app and opt-in to proximity notifications using Beacon technology and/or notifications based on your GPS location as provided by your mobile device through the App, you consent to collection of your personal information, including location data and any purchases made on site at the Forecastle Festival, through the Service (where possible) using a variety of methods, including but not limited to, cookies, beacons, location data, and others (“Collection Tools”). You may opt-out of these notifications any time, including turning off your mobile device’s ability to share location data. If you do turn off these Collection Tools, you may not have access to many features that make your experience more efficient and enjoyable, and some features may not function properly.

Anonymous Data Collected ForecastleFest.com.

For example, we use technology to track how many visitors access our websites, the date and time of their visit, the length of their stay, and which pages they viewed. We also use technology to determine which web browsers our visitors use and the address from which they accessed our sites (for example, if they connected to a Forecastle website by clicking on one of our banner ads).

These companies may need information about you in order to perform their functions. These companies are not authorized to use the information we share with them for any other purpose. In addition, there may be some other, limited circumstances in which Forecastle or our affiliates may share or transfer the personal data in our databases, for example, to comply with a legal requirement, for the administration of justice, to protect your vital interests, or in the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution, or similar event.
