Section 1: Personal Information
We collect personal information when we provide our services to you. We collect personal information directly from you and sometimes acquire lists from other sources, both from other companies and from other public documents. In order to operate Skip the Box Office and provide you with information on products and services that may be of interest to you, we may collect “contact information” (i.e., information that could be used to contact you such as full name, postal address, phone number and email address as well as your computer’s unique IP address if any.
In some instances, we collect “financial information” (i.e., passwords, credit and debit card numbers and bank and other financial institution account numbers) and “demographic information” (e.g., zip code, postal code, hometown, gender, purchase history information and age as well as IP addresses that are not unique to your computer) from you. Although we collect credit card numbers during checkout and over-the-phone box office, we do not store any of this financial information including passwords on our server. All credit card transactions are processed seamlessly through a secure and encrypted third-party credit card processor. Please note that nowhere on the Site do we knowingly collect contact information or financial information from children under the age of 13.
Section 2: Use Of Information
We usually collect personal information such as your name, address, telephone number, email and in some instances, your financial details. When you are online, we collect information regarding the pages within our network which you visit and what you click on. As a general rule we do not collect sensitive information. However, if we do, it will usually be for the purposes of providing our goods or services and if the law requires us to, we will seek your consent to collect it.
We use your information to provide our services to you, to fulfil administrative functions associated with these services, for example billing, to enter into contracts with you or third parties and for marketing and client relationship purposes. Your contact details may be used to contact you to inform you of important information related to an event you have purchased tickets to, for example time, venue, and event changes or event cancellation. Where your personal information is contained within an advertisement which we publish for you, we may also use your information for publication of that same advertisement in other media, in accordance with the terms and conditions of the initial publication.
If you have registered a Skip the Box Office account with us, we will hold your contact and billing details. Those details are primarily used to provide you with the ticketing services you have requested and to send you information about the Skip the Box Office platform, any upgrades that become available, new developments and forthcoming features and to charge you for service fees in relation to tickets you have acquired through the Skip the Box Office platform. If you have booked or registered for events that are listed by an EVENT PROMOTER using Skip the Box Office and the Skip the Box Office platform, we keep a record of your booking data to report to the EVENT PROMOTER. Your booking data will be provided to the event PROMOTER if requested for their records and analysis. This booking data includes your personal contact details, not your personal credit card or sensitive financial information, which are given to EVENT PROMOTERS at the time of purchase. If you agree to receiving information at the time of registration, we will occasionally send you our monthly event newsletter and any event listings that may be of interest to you or geographically close to you including any special offers or promotional discounts, earlybird announcements, about future events directly from the EVENT PROMOTER. You are given the option to remove yourself or unsubscribe from the mailing list everytime a promotional email is sent to your email. If you unsubscribe, your personal contact information is still stored on Skip the Box Office and can be used to contact you about important matters, news, or changes that pertain to your event. Your personal information will never be sold to advertisers or third-parties but Skip the Box Office may charge advertisers or EVENT PROMOTERS to send special offers or event listings that may be of interest to you only if you are subscribed.
