Event Venues faq

What do you consider local?

By default we set local as within 40 miles radius of where you are – or appear to be. However you can increase or decrease this when you do your search, restricting it perhaps if you live in an urban area or increasing it if you live in a very rural one. Simpy drag the slider on the locality search box to increase or decrease the radius of your search.

Can I search for events where I am going rather than where I am?

Yes just use the search box on the front page to search for venues near where you are going.

 

How do you ‘locate’ me?

We use the Geolocation facility which is provided by most mobile devices (phones, tablets) and through the browser on laptops and computers. Location is usually very accurate on mobile devices but can be less so on PCs depending on the network you are using to connect.

Is there any security risk to using Geolocation?

While GPS can help you find places you’re going to and discover local deals, sharing your location with the world could pose some danger, so it’s critical to be aware of the risks that we face when using location-based services or geo-tagging.

For instance, you may not mind sharing your exact location with friends and family, but what about with people you don’t know? When your location is broadcast on social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, you lose control of the information. Anyone can see it.

GPS data is also used in geotagging. Geotagging includes longitude and latitude data in the image file automatically unless this is turned off. This technology is prevalent in images and videos taken by both smartphones and digital cameras.

This is troublesome because many of us are unaware of this feature, even though sharing images online has become immensely popular. Sites such as Instagram, Facebook, Flickr and YouTube are filled with pictures and videos that include location information. Most of the time, that information won’t matter, but you could be inadvertently telling people where you are just by sharing what you may think is an innocent photo.

Here’s some tips to use location services safely:

  • Turn off the GPS function on your smartphone camera or digital camera. This is important if you are going to be sharing your images online. Instructions on how to turn off geotagging will vary, but we suggest referring to your phone or camera’s manual for further instructions on how to adjust this feature. You also might want to consider only letting certain apps (like maps) use your location data on your mobile device.
  • Check your privacy settings on social networks and photo sharing sites. Make sure that you are only sharing information with friends and family. Also, make sure that you only accept people into your network that you know in real life.
  • Be aware of the fact that the information you share on one social network may be linked to another. For instance, a photo you post to Twitter may automatically post to your Facebook profile. Because of this, it’s important that you check the privacy settings on all your accounts.
  • Finally, be careful about what images you’re sharing and when you are sharing them. Rather than uploading a picture that reveals your location the moment you take it, wait until you get home to upload it.

Remember that whatever you post online is public, even if your privacy settings are set correctly.

How do I turn off Geolocation?

goodlocally.com always asks if we can use Geolocation beforehand. If you do not want us to use Geolocation select the “no” option in the Pop-up.

If you have previously requested we Geolocate you it can be turned off. But all devices vary so you need to consult the instructions for the particular device you are using.

Does the Good Local Network store, save or pass on Geolocation data?

We do not collect, store or pass on Geolocation data or record it against your profile. We never have done and we never will. However be aware other sites including Facebook and Google may do so.

Please consult our Privacy Policy for full details of how we deal with personal data.

What do you consider local?

By default we set local as within 40 miles radius of where you are – or appear to be. However you can increase or decrease this when you do your search, restricting it perhaps if you live in an urban area or increasing it if you live in a very rural one. Simpy drag the slider on the locality search box to increase or decrease the radius of your search.

Can I search for events where I am going rather than where I am?

Yes just use the search box on the front page to search for venues near where you are going.

 

How do you ‘locate’ me?

We use the Geolocation facility which is provided by most mobile devices (phones, tablets) and through the browser on laptops and computers. Location is usually very accurate on mobile devices but can be less so on PCs depending on the network you are using to connect.

Is there any security risk to using Geolocation?

While GPS can help you find places you’re going to and discover local deals, sharing your location with the world could pose some danger, so it’s critical to be aware of the risks that we face when using location-based services or geo-tagging.

For instance, you may not mind sharing your exact location with friends and family, but what about with people you don’t know? When your location is broadcast on social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, you lose control of the information. Anyone can see it.

GPS data is also used in geotagging. Geotagging includes longitude and latitude data in the image file automatically unless this is turned off. This technology is prevalent in images and videos taken by both smartphones and digital cameras.

This is troublesome because many of us are unaware of this feature, even though sharing images online has become immensely popular. Sites such as Instagram, Facebook, Flickr and YouTube are filled with pictures and videos that include location information. Most of the time, that information won’t matter, but you could be inadvertently telling people where you are just by sharing what you may think is an innocent photo.

Here’s some tips to use location services safely:

  • Turn off the GPS function on your smartphone camera or digital camera. This is important if you are going to be sharing your images online. Instructions on how to turn off geotagging will vary, but we suggest referring to your phone or camera’s manual for further instructions on how to adjust this feature. You also might want to consider only letting certain apps (like maps) use your location data on your mobile device.
  • Check your privacy settings on social networks and photo sharing sites. Make sure that you are only sharing information with friends and family. Also, make sure that you only accept people into your network that you know in real life.
  • Be aware of the fact that the information you share on one social network may be linked to another. For instance, a photo you post to Twitter may automatically post to your Facebook profile. Because of this, it’s important that you check the privacy settings on all your accounts.
  • Finally, be careful about what images you’re sharing and when you are sharing them. Rather than uploading a picture that reveals your location the moment you take it, wait until you get home to upload it.

Remember that whatever you post online is public, even if your privacy settings are set correctly.

How do I turn off Geolocation?

goodlocally.com always asks if we can use Geolocation beforehand. If you do not want us to use Geolocation select the “no” option in the Pop-up.

If you have previously requested we Geolocate you it can be turned off. But all devices vary so you need to consult the instructions for the particular device you are using.

Does the Good Local Network store, save or pass on Geolocation data?

We do not collect, store or pass on Geolocation data or record it against your profile. We never have done and we never will. However be aware other sites including Facebook and Google may do so.

Please consult our Privacy Policy for full details of how we deal with personal data.

I don’t want my event, venue or business listed – how do I get it removed?

We aim to become a comprehensive editorial service listing events, venues and event-related businesses and independently rating and reviewing them.

If you are operating an event or event-related business and we already list you we will not normally remove the listing without an exceptionally good reason.

You can make representations giving your reasons requesting removal but we make no guarantee to do so.

Why are there no contact details for Stallholders on the website?

We work on a commission basis where we charge the Event Organiser a percentage of stall rental on the stalls we sell for them. Traders pay the same price as they would were they to book on to the event directly with the organiser but have the convenience of booking multiple events in one place.

Hence we do not disclose contact details for event organisers or stallholders on the website.
