COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We may also collect or create de-identified information from personal information in a manner that it cannot reasonably be used to infer information about, or otherwise be linked to, a particular individual. To the extent that we classify such information as “de-identified,” we commit to maintaining and using such information in a de-identified form and to not attempting to re-identify such information (except for purposes permitted by law).
Sources of Personal Information. We obtain personal information from a variety of sources, including the following sources:
USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
To provide the Platform or Event. We may use personal information to operate our business. For example, we use personal information to:
Research and Development. We use personal information for research and development purposes, including to study and improve the features and functionality of our Platform and our business, understand and analyze the usage trends and preferences of our Users, and develop and improve our Content and Services. As part of these activities, we may create aggregated, de-identified, or other anonymous data from personal information we collect. We make personal information into anonymous data by removing information that makes the data personally identifiable to you. We may use this anonymous data and share it with third parties for our lawful business purposes.
Direct Marketing. We may send you BSE Family-related or other direct marketing communications as permitted by law, including materials, updates, information, special offers, and promotional material from us and our Event Partners and other business partners. You may opt-out of our marketing communications as described in the “YOUR CHOICES” section below.
To Comply with Laws and Regulations. We will use personal information as we believe necessary or appropriate to comply with applicable laws, lawful requests, and legal process, such as to respond to subpoenas or requests from government authorities.
For Compliance, Fraud Prevention, and Safety. We may use personal information and disclose it to law enforcement, government authorities, and private parties as we believe necessary or appropriate to: (a) maintain the safety, security, and integrity of the Platform, the Event, and our business, databases, and other technology assets; (b) protect our, your, or others’ rights, privacy, safety or property (including by making and defending legal claims or in response to health emergencies or an incident at an Event); (c) audit our internal processes for compliance with legal and contractual requirements and internal policies; (d) enforce the terms and conditions that govern the Platform, your transaction, or attendance at an Event; and (e) prevent, identify, investigate, and deter fraudulent, harmful, unauthorized, unethical or illegal activity, including cyberattacks and identity theft.
With Your Consent. We will disclose your personal information in accordance with your prior direction or, in some cases, we may specifically ask you for your consent to collect, use, or share your personal information, such as when required by law.
Event Partners. We may share your personal information with Event Partners to provide an Event, such as third-party ticketing platforms or box offices, venue owners, facility operators and management companies, sponsors, performers, promoters, food or retail vendors, and other third parties that can provide added value to the Event. In certain circumstances, you may direct us to disclose your personal information to or interact with these Event Partners as part of attending an Event, visiting the respective venue or facility, or making a purchase. However, in other cases, these Event Partners may also receive your personal information from us because we think their products or services may be of interest to you.
Service providers. We may share your personal information with third parties who perform services on our behalf that are necessary for the orderly operation of our business, Platform, or an Event. For example, we work with service providers that help us perform website hosting, e-commerce, payment processing, ticket fulfillment, maintenance services, database management, analytics, fraud protection, marketing, customer relationship management, finances, and other purposes.
Advertising partners. We may share personal information with third parties who we partner with for advertising campaigns or that collect information about your activity on the Platform for the purposes described in the “Interest-Based Advertising” section above.
Sweepstakes and joint marketing partners. We may also share your personal information with other partners in order to provide you with content and other features through the Platform, and such partners may send you promotional materials or otherwise contact you regarding products and services that they offer. When you choose to enter a contest or sign up for a sweepstakes, we may share the personal information you provide as part of the offer with the named co-sponsors or other third parties affiliated with such offer.
Other Users and the public. You may be able to submit content to the Platform (such as comments, questions, stories, reviews, surveys, blogs, photos, and videos), or may win a contest/sweepstakes that we may publicly post, and we may identify you by displaying information such as your name, username, or social media handle along with the content you submit. By attending an Event, you may be captured by video which may be shared publicly. We do not control how other Users or third parties use any personal information that you make available to other Users or the public.
Professional advisors. We may share personal information with persons, companies, or professional firms providing BSE with advice and consulting in accounting, administrative, legal, tax, financial, debt collection, and other matters.
Law enforcement, government authorities, and privacy parties. Under certain circumstances, we may be required to disclose personal information to law enforcement, government authorities, and other parties if required to do so by law or in response to valid requests by public authorities (e.g., a court or a government agency). We may disclose personal information in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a legal obligation or for the purposes described above in the section titled “For compliance, fraud prevention, and safety.”
Business transaction participants. We may disclose personal information to third parties in connection with any business transaction (or potential transaction) involving a merger, acquisition, sale of shares or assets, financing, consolidation, reorganization, divestiture, or dissolution of all or a portion of our business (including in connection with a bankruptcy or similar proceedings).
INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
BSE is based in the United States, and we have service providers in the United States and potentially other countries. Your personal information may be collected, used, and stored in these countries or other locations outside of your home country. Privacy laws in the locations where we handle your personal information may not be as protective as the privacy laws in your home country. By providing your personal information, where applicable law permits, you specifically and expressly consent to such transfer and processing and the collection, use, and disclosure set forth herein.
SECURITY OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
No method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is fully secure. While we use commercially reasonable efforts to protect your personal information from the risks presented by unauthorized access or acquisition, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information.
