Secondary entity is the term CircuiTree uses to refer to someone who isn’t primarily responsible for an itinerary or registration but has a set of secondary transactions they can complete. The classic example is that of a parent who sends her child to summer camp as part of the youth group. The youth group that pays for the registration (as far as the camp is concerned) is the primary entity. The parent, however, may wish to give her child spending money or purchase one-way emails or photo viewing access. The parent who does this then becomes a secondary entity–namely, another party who can purchase certain services on a registration but doesn’t have access to the full account privileges or other registrations on the itinerary.
