Privacy and data security
Updated over a week ago

We aim to be the best we can be, a world-class event ticketing platform that gives away all its profits to children’s charities and a world-class event ticketing platform that keeps all user data safe and secure.

Our commitment to all event hosts and attendees

We love all our event hosts and everyone who attends events on Humanitix, but we don’t love it when Internet companies abuse data privacy for their own gain.

🔐 We will never sell your data to third parties. Period.

We’ll never tell the internet salespeople about your quirky, one-of-a-kind workshop - but we’re sure they’d love to attend it!

✉️ We will only send you emails if you opt-in for them.

Our newsletters are a joy to read, so we hope you opt in for them! Nevertheless, if you don’t, we’ll understand, but please note that there will be tears.

🫶 We don’t own your data; you do.

Like a well-made chopping board, consider all your data on Humanitix a prized possession that’ll last you a lifetime. You have full control over it, so manipulate it as you will.

✅ Is my information secure? Yes. We care about your data and your security.

Humanitix is a Software As A Service (SaaS) product that provides a self-service ticketing platform for event organisers. Funded by the Atlassian Foundation and a range of other philanthropists, Humanitix funds education programs for disadvantaged children.

We’re here to change the world, not sell your data.
