Ticket Purchase Information
If you do purchase tickets or make a online
Registration, we will be receiving both: personal information at your choosing to disclose, and information we
require to manage and develop or expand the activities of the event, in the form of survey questions as part
of the Ticket Purchase.
Tickets with this survey included, with many required Questions, are not required to be
purchased to attend, as we have Ticket Choices without the Extensive Survey. We do however, offer the Tickets with
the Survey at a discount ed price, before any further promotions, as a 'Thank You' to those who take our Survey to
help us develop EV Fest to a higher level.
We have provided a summary disclosure of those particulars on our 'Ticket Survey' Page, regarding the information provided as a guest of EV Fest 2015, buying
a ticket for yourself, or for Family tickets.
Credit Card Information
If you choose to avail of our services and make online purchases, you may need to give personal information and
authorization to obtain information from various credit services. We have restricted the Credit information we
