People who buy tickets will be receive an email with the ticket attached, they can download it when purchsed and even print it out. If they are members of YourDaysOut, all tickets are stored in their profile and they just need to show it to you on the day.
Embed the entire Ticket Widget on your own website and sell tickets without pushing your users to open another webpage.
Premium users can create their own embed codes to sell tickets directly from their own website.
A user will purchase a ticket as a guest (as opposed to the option of being a registered YDO user). The purchase path is the same, tickets can be downloaded and are also emailed to the buyer. YDO users have the benefit of their tickets being automatically saved in their profile.
There are two different methods:
Embed the Tickets button, so the widget open as an overlay:
2) On Page
Embed the tickets widget as an iframe on the page:
All user data from those that purchased tickets is hard deleted from our system, 90 days post the event. This allows you extra time to initiate refunds etc.
If a user has opted in to be contacted by you, you can access their information in your Marketing tab. This data is protected and only accessibly by your business, not YourDaysOut.
(A user can opt-in to YDO when they create an account).
It is the responsibilty of each Premium User to manage this data and ensure they are comliant with all the requirements of the GDPR.
