We may collect information about our users in various ways. Namely, we may collect information that you provide to us, we may automatically collect information through your use of the Website, and we may collect information about you from other sources, such as publicly available sources or third parties.
A. INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO US
You may provide to us personally identifiable information, which is information that could be used to identify you as a specific individual, such as your name, address, phone number or e-mail address ("personal information") and other information about you, such as demographic information (zip code, gender or similar information) or certain information about your preferences and interests. The Website may collect information about you, including personal information, at various places and forms on the Website, including when you send us an e-mail, enter in contests and sweepstakes, subscribe to newsletters and clubs, submit a job application or post comments, or when you otherwise communicate or interact with us. You are solely responsible for your own personal information in instances where we have not requested that you submit such information to us.
B. INFORMATION COLLECTED AUTOMATICALLY
We, as well as third-party advertisers, service providers and content providers, may use a variety of technologies (“Tracking Technologies”) that automatically collect certain Website usage information whenever you visit or interact with us ("usage information”). Usage information may include browser type, operating system, all of the areas within our sites and e-mails that you visit, including content that you browse, and the time of day, among other information. Usage information may also include your IP address or other unique identifier ("device identifier") for the particular device you use to access the Website. A device identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer, mobile phone, or other device used to access the Website and our servers identify your device by its device identifier. Some mobile service providers may also provide us or our third party service providers with information regarding the physical location of the device used to access our Website.
The methods that may be used to collect usage information include the following:
Web beacons and Pixels
Small graphic images or other web programming code called web beacons (also known as pixels, 1x1 gifs or clear gifs) may be included in the Website pages and e-mail messages from us or our affiliates. Web beacons may be invisible to you, but any electronic image or other web programming code inserted into a web page or e-mail can act as a web beacon. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes including, without limitation, to count visitors to the sites, to monitor how users navigate the sites, to count how many e-mails sent were actually opened or to count how many forwarded links were actually viewed.
An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the sites, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your device from our web server or a third party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the sites, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.
We may automatically collect the location of your device using your IP address and other data points in order to provide you with our services or tailor our services to your needs. Please note that certain parts of the Website may not function properly without the location data, and that we may be required by law to retain such information.
Some information about your use of the Website and certain Third Party Services (defined below) may be collected using Tracking Technologies across time and services and used by us and third parties for purposes such as to associate different devices you use, and deliver relevant ads and/or other content to you on the Website and certain Third Party Services. For further information on Tracking Technologies and your choices regarding them, please see the sections entitled “Links to Other Online Services and Third Parties” and “Analytics and Advertising Choices” below.
C. INFORMATION FROM THIRD PARTIES
We may receive information about you from other sources, including publicly and commercially available sources, as permitted by law, which we may combine with other information we receive from or about you. For example, we may receive information from third parties that sell tickets to Blue Man Group shows, such as Ticketmaster. We are not responsible for the accuracy of any information provided by third parties or third party policies or practices.
