This page outlines what happens to your personal data when you use our online ticket stores.
This website is operated by Tickit.
Last update: December 12, 2023.
Tickit is not in the data harvesting or selling business – we collect the minimum data required to fulfill your order and ensure our services are running efficiently.
Merchants using Tickit have access to your data and may do things with it that we can’t control – please review their individual privacy policies.
Merchants may add third-party tracking scripts to their stores (like Facebook sign-ins or ad tracking scripts). If you’re not comfortable with that we recommend using an ad blocker.
We use Google Analytics to track how the site is performing. There are Facebook and Twitter sharing buttons on some pages, but we only load the sharing scripts if you explicitly click to share.
Tickit is a ticket selling platform that allows merchants to host and manage online stores.
Information automatically collected when visiting our site
Some information is automatically collected by us when you visit our website or open emails from the system, including
- your IP address, device type and some browser information
- the date and time you accessed the site or opened the email
- what pages you visited and links you clicked
- what website you visited from
We collect this information to help make our site more useful by assessing our services and system performance, as well as learning how many people are visiting the site and how they are using it. No attempt is made to use this information to identify visitors, unless it is necessary for an investigation or it is required by law.
Information collected during and after the checkout process
In order to fulfill your order we collect additional information during the checkout process, including:
- which tickets you added to your cart and any promotional links or codes that were used
- your name, email address and billing address
- your payment method and billing details (we never log or store your credit card number or CVV code)
- actions you take to modify your order (e.g. changing names on tickets, sharing tickets, downloading tickets)
In order to process your order we send the minimum data possible to a number of third-party services, including payment processors and email providers.
Information you send to us using our web forms is encrypted so that it is protected from a third party accessing it in transit. However, email messages sent over the internet are generally not secure and may be read by a third party who intercepts the communication.
Information collected at event check-in
When you use your tickets we record the time and gate information when your ticket is admitted. We use this information to provide attendee statistics to merchants and to ensure tickets are valid for entry.
Data sent to third parties
Like most web sites we use a variety of third-party systems to help make the site run.
Payment processors – Merchants may connect one or more payment processors to their Tickit account, including Chase, Paymentech, Orbital, Moneris, Elavon, Bambora, Stripe and PayPal. If you would like information about payment processing for a specific merchant please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cookies are small files that are saved on your computer and used to store information that is communicated back to the website being accessed.
We use reasonable security measures to protect against risks such as unauthorized access, collection, use, disclosure or disposal. These security measures protect personal information once it reaches our server. In addition, we use encryption for all connections to our websites and regularly perform automated security scans.
Your credit card number and CVV code is never logged or stored.
Information sent to us in email messages is not secure.
How long is personal information kept?
If you only visit pages of this site and do not begin the checkout process then your information is automatically deleted after 60 days.
If you begin the checkout process your information is kept indefinitely. We retain this data to provide statistics to merchants and to allow us to perform fraud reviews.
If you would like to delete your personal information please email us at email@example.com.
Use and disclosure of personal information
Personal information you send to us by email or when you place an order will only be used by authorized Tickit staff for the purpose for which it was collected, unless you consent otherwise, or it is authorized or required by law.
We do not sell or rent personal information.
We do send your personal information to select third parties in order to fulfill your order and ensure the quality of our services.
As noted above, individual merchants using Tickit also have access to your personal information and may have other privacy practices.
