Personally Identifiable Information Collected

In connection with your visit to and participation in activities at our Website, we may require you to submit personally identifiable information, which is used to facilitate delivery of products and/or services to you. When you voluntarily provide personally identifiable information, you consent to its use and disclosure in accordance with this Privacy Policy, subject to any use and disclosure from which you have opted out, as provided below. Such personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to, the following types of information collected in the following contexts:

If payment transactions are completed by one of our third-party service providers, you will be sent to the third-party service provider’s website to complete your purchase after selecting a product or service to purchase. During this process, the third-party service provider may ask you to provide certain personally identifiable information, including credit card information. Bill Beatty does not have access to information you provide to such third-parties, and does not control the collection, use, or disclosure of such information. Please be sure to review the privacy policy of any third-party service provider before disclosing personally identifiable information to them.

Correspondence: If you send us personal correspondence by electronic means, such as email, we may collect and maintain information provided by the correspondence in a file specific to you.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information Collected

We may automatically collect additional, non-personally identifiable, information regarding your visit to and participation in activities on the Website. Such information may be obtained through the use of cookies, web beacons, embedded scripts, browser fingerprinting, etag (or “entity tag”), recognition technologies, location-identifying technologies such as iBeacons or GPS, and other tracking technologies. The following describes some, though not all, non-personally identifiable information we may collect using such tracking technologies.

Cookies: As with many websites, the Website uses standard technology called “cookies.” Cookies are small data files written to the hard drive or storage space of whatever device you are using to access the Website (e.g. your computer or smartphone), which record certain technical information about your internet usage, such as your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address and/or browser type. Cookies automatically identify your web browser to the Website whenever you visit the Website and make using the Website easier for you by saving your passwords, purchases and preferences. By tracking how and when you use the Website, cookies help us determine which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the Website are based on data obtained from cookies. Accepting cookies allows you to, among other things, personalize your experience on the Website. Cookies also may allow the Website to present to you advertising which may be of interest to you. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, you generally can opt out of providing this information by turning off the cookies option in your browser; however, some areas of the Website may not function properly if you have disabled the use of cookies.

IP Addresses and Click-stream Data: We may collect IP addresses and/or click-stream data for purposes of system administration, to improve the Website, to report aggregate information to our advertisers and sponsors, or for other internal uses. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. Our computers identify your computer by its IP address. When you request webpages from the Website, our computers log your IP address. Click-stream data is information collected by our computers when you request webpages from the Website. Click-stream data may include such information as the page served, the time of service, the source of the request, the type of browser making the request, the preceding page view and other such non-personally identifiable information. This data helps us analyze how visitors arrive at the Website, what type of content is most popular, what type of visitors in the aggregate are interested in particular kinds of content and advertising, and the like.

Use of Information Collected

We internally use personally identifiable information about you to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyze site usage, to improve our content and product offerings and to customize the Website’s content and layout. We believe these uses allow us to improve the Website and provide better service to you.

Occasionally, we may use your email address and, in rare situations, mailing address or phone number, to contact you regarding administrative matters or notices, opinions of the Website and/or services, and to provide further information regarding additional events, products or services we believe you would be interested in. We may use information in the file we maintain about you to resolve disputes and troubleshoot problems.

Information Shared

In order to process your requests, we may provide your personally identifiable information to service providers or other companies who work on our behalf in order, for example, to process the transaction and deliver the tickets or other goods or services you have ordered. When we do so, we use reasonable efforts to assure that they comply with this Privacy Policy and applicable law.

Required Disclosures

We may be required to collect, share or disclose your personally identifiable information without your consent in the following instances: i) pursuant to judicial orders, subpoenas, decrees, or warrants; ii) in order to investigate, prevent or take action regarding suspected illegal activities, fraud, safety or the security of persons or property, or as otherwise authorized or required by law; iii) pursuant to requests from governmental, regulatory or administrative agencies or law enforcement authorities; and iv) pursuant to emergencies involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person or property, if we believe that your information in any way relates to that threat.

In addition, certain business transitions, such as mergers, acquisitions, liquidation or sale of all or a portion of Bill Beatty assets, may require the disclosure and/or transfer of your personally identifiable information. A disclosure under any category listed in this section is a “Required Disclosure.”

Third-Party Tracking and Do Not Track

Third parties may use tracking technologies in connection with our sites and applications, which may include the collection of information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites. This Privacy Policy does not apply to these third-party technologies because we may not control them and we are not responsible for them. Do Not Track is a technology that enables users to opt out of tracking by websites they do not visit. Currently, we do not monitor or take any action with respect to Do Not Track technology.

Opting Out

It is possible for you to use many features of the Website without giving us any personally identifiable information. While we believe our disclosure of your personally identifiable information will result in opportunities that may be of interest to you, you have the opportunity to tell us not to give your information to any third party by opting out (except as pursuant to Required Disclosures as noted above). If you wish Bill Beatty to keep your personally identifiable information confidential, please email us at staff@bbi-tx.com.

Your opt-out request must include your name, email address, and mailing address, and any requests sent by regular mail must be signed. Please allow six weeks to process your request. You also may opt out by clicking on the appropriate opt-out links contained in our applicable email communications or Website registration forms. After your request has been fulfilled, the only disclosures we will make are the Required Disclosures described above.

However, you should be aware that under some circumstances, such as where we are contractually required to disclose ticket purchase information to event holders, we may not be able to fulfill your ticket order for such event if you have requested that we do not disclose your information to third parties.

Note that certain states require us to allow visitors to request information regarding our disclosures of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. For example, under California law, California residents who provide personal information (as defined in the statute) in obtaining products or services for personal, family, or household use are entitled to request and obtain from us certain information about the personal information we shared, if any, with other businesses for marketing uses. To make any such request, please send an email to staff@bbi-tx.com.

Security Protection of Personally Identifiable Information

The Website incorporates industry standard, commercially reasonable safeguards to protect the security, confidentiality and privacy of your personally identifiable information collected at the Website in accordance with this Privacy Policy. However, please keep in mind that “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet, and it is always possible that any personally identifiable information transmitted or disclosed online can be intercepted by others and used unlawfully. Accordingly, we cannot 100% guarantee the security of your personally identifiable information. In addition, personally identifiable information that you may voluntarily disclose and post on the Website (such as on message boards and in chat rooms) that may be viewed by the public will create a risk that such personally identifiable information may be used by others and that you may receive unsolicited email or information as a result.

Website Links

You should be aware that when you are on the Website, you could be directed to other websites offered by parties that are beyond our control. For example, if you “click” on a banner advertisement, the “click” may take you off our Website onto a different website. This includes links from Bill Beatty business partners, advertisers and sponsors that may use the Website’s logo as part of a co-branding arrangement. These other websites may send their own cookies to you, independently collect data or solicit personally identifiable information and may or may not have their own published privacy policies. If you visit a website that is linked to our Website, you should consult that website’s privacy policy before providing any personal information. We are not related to and have no control over other websites and the parties that administer them, and this Privacy Policy does not apply to any information that you may submit to them.

By using this Website, you signify your agreement to the terms of the Bill Beatty Privacy Policy and Terms of Website Use. Bill Beatty may change this policy from time to time. If so, we will prominently post a notification of the change on our Website, and any such changes will be posted on this page, so that Bill Beatty may keep its users informed of its information collection practices. Accordingly, you should consult this page frequently when visiting the Website and before furnishing any personally identifiable information so that you are aware of our latest policy and/or any changes to this Privacy Policy. Your continued use of the Website after any such changes have been posted shall constitute your acceptance of and agreement to such revised Privacy Policy.

Updating Personally Identifiable Information

If your personally identifiable information changes, or if you no longer desire to access our Website, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove the personally identifiable information you have provided to us. This can be done by making changes to your profile through our Website, by using an opt-out option provided in one of our e-mails or newsletters, or by notifying us by email at staff@bbi-tx.com.
