Who is Fringe
Fringe Theatre provides services to artists, producers, organizers, and creators (collectively referred to as “Organizers”) to promote and sell tickets, reservations, subscriptions, merchandise, and donations to shows, conferences, and activities (each, an “Event”) to purchasers and attendees (each, a “Patron,” and collectively referred to as “Patrons,” “you,” and “your”). Fringe Theatre’s services give Patrons access to the Events and facilitate the procurement of merchandise and processing of donations.
Fringe’s website and domain, tickets.fringetheatre.ca, (our “Site”) and the services available on the Site, in-person at our physical box office locations, and in person at third-party Events using our services, are collectively referred to as the “Services.”
