FAQ

WHAT IS RFID?
RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification. We use it at Fieldays in the form of a tag inside your “Explorer Wristband”. RFID is used to identify, transfer and track information between a tag and a directly interactive device.

HOW DOES RFID WORK?
At Fieldays, inside your Explorer band there is a tag. A unique identification number is stored electronically inside this small tag. There is also a transmitter and receiver connected to the tag. The exhibitor devices send an encrypted radio signal to identify the tag. When the tag receives the signal, it replies with its unique identification number, so the device and system know which wristband is being scanned!

CAN MY BAND BE REUSED?
If you are coming back multiple days, please hold on to the same wristband for the entire event. At the end of your time at the event, please hand your band back at the return station upon exit so that we can reset and sanitise the wristbands for re-use and sustainability!

WHERE DOES MY WRISTBAND GO AFTER I RETURN IT?
We do everything we can to lessen our environmental footprint at the Fieldays. We have chosen to have silicone Explorer Bands so that we can re-use them (we sterilise them, don’t worry!).

IS MY INFORMATION SAFE?
Yes! Only your chosen information is passed on to the exhibitors that you chose to connect with when you interact with them. We only pass forward your information with explicit permission from you. We adhere to a strict Privacy Policy and the New Zealand Data Privacy Act 1993, that is viewable to you HERE. Your information is safely hosted on an encrypted server with our partner; Satellite. Satellite are a longstanding, experienced and trustworthy New Zealand company that has world class data security services. If you wish to learn more about other projects they have provided, please take a look here www.satellitetag.co.nz/work

CAN I SEE THE INFORMATION YOU HAVE COLLECTED?
Yes! Absolutely, you will be texted a unique URL to your phone when you register your wristband. You can access this link at any time to see a complete list of all of the information that is stored against the wristband. This includes a list of all of the exhibitors you have chosen to interact with (by tapping your band) throughout the event!

I HAVE MORE QUESTIONS, WHO DO I SPEAK TO?
If you have any questions specifically about the Explorer Band system, please email ticketing@fieldays.co.nz

CAN LOST OR STOLEN WRISTBANDS BE TRACKED?
If your wristband is stolen (very unlikely) or gets lost (also very unlikely) you can get a replacement. You can also disconnect your wristband by visiting an activation station on site.

CAN I USE THE EXPLORER BAND TO PURCHASE THINGS?
No, the RFID system is only for competitions and connecting with your favourite exhibitors.

ARE THERE ANY ASSOCIATED COSTS?
Nope, not at all. The system is free to use.
