We do not knowingly permit the site to be used by any person under the age of eighteen and we do not knowingly collect any personal information from children (meaning those younger than thirteen years of age).

If you choose to become a registered client of 713-Tickets, you must provide your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, a unique login name, password, and password validation, as well as a password hint to help you recover your password, if forgotten.

We use other third parties to provide news, packages and logos on our site. We do not share any personal information with these companies. If you choose to purchase a package from one of  our partners, any information you provide to them is subject to their privacy policy.

These third parties are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose.

 

Online Surveys

713-Tickets values opinions and comments from clients, so we frequently conduct online surveys. Participation in these surveys is entirely optional. Typically, the information is aggregated and used to make improvements to 713-Tickets and to develop appealing content, features and promotions for clients. Survey participants are anonymous unless otherwise stated in the survey.

713-Tickets frequently sponsors promotions and sweepstakes to give clients the opportunity to win exclusive tickets and related prizes. Information collected by us for such activities may include contact information and survey questions. We use contact information to notify contest winners and survey information to develop promotions and product improvements to the 713-Tickets.com web site.

 

Automatic Logging of Session Data

We automatically log generic information about your computer's connection to the Internet, which we call "session data," that is anonymous and not linked to any personal information. Session data consists of things such as IP address, operating system and type of browser software being used and the activities conducted by the user while on our site. An IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet, such as our web servers, know where to send data back to the user, such as the pages on the site that the user wishes to view.

 

We collect session data because it helps us analyze such things as what items visitors are likely to click on most, the way visitors are clicking through the site, how many visitors are surfing to various pages on the site, how long visitors to the site are staying and how often they are visiting. It also helps us diagnose problems with our servers and lets us better administer our systems. Although such information does not identify any visitor personally, it is possible to determine from an IP address a visitor's Internet Service Provider (ISP) and the approximate geographic location of his or her point of connectivity.

 

Cookies

"Cookies" are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive. There are many myths circulating about cookies, but you should know that cookies are only read by the server that placed them, and are unable to do such things as run programs on your computer, plant viruses or harvest your personal information. 713-Tickets uses cookies to help analyze our web page flow, to measure promotional effectiveness, and to foster trust and safety.

 

First and foremost, you can rest assured that no personally identifiable information ("PII") about you (e.g., name, address, etc.) is gathered or stored in the cookies placed by the 713-Tickets.com web site and, as a result, none can be passed on to any third parties.

 

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies. Of course, by changing the options on your web browser or using certain software programs, you can control how and whether cookies will be accepted by your browser. 713-Tickets supports your right to block any unwanted Internet activity, especially that of unscrupulous websites. However, blocking 713-Tickets cookies may disable certain features on our site and may make it impossible to purchase or use certain services available on the site. Please note that it is possible to block cookie activity from certain web sites while permitting cookies from sites you trust, like 713-Tickets.

 

How can I opt-out of receiving your promotional emails?

At any time, you can unsubscribe from our newsletter or similar services through the "My Account" link, accessible on the 713-Tickets home page (or by contacting our office at 713-842-5387.)

 

As a client or promotion/sweepstakes entrant, you will occasionally receive e-mail updates from us about ticket sales in your area, special offers, new 713-Tickets services, and other noteworthy items. We hope you will find these updates interesting and informative. Of course, if you prefer not receive them, please click on the "unsubscribe" link or follow the instructions in each e-mail message or by sending a letter:

713-Tickets reserves the right to limit membership to those who will accept e-mails. Clients will be notified via e-mail prior to any actions taken.

 

What safeguards are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information?

713-Tickets contains links to other web sites. Please note that when you click on one of these links, you are entering another web site for which 713-Tickets has no responsibility. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of all such sites as their policies may be materially different from this Privacy Policy. Of course, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and your 713-Tickets membership account information. Please be very careful, responsible, and alert with this information, especially whenever you're online.

 

In addition to the circumstances described above, 713-Tickets may disclose client information if required to do so by law, court order, as requested by other government or law enforcement authority, as requested in connection with any governing entity regulating ticket distribution to any event or in the good faith belief that disclosure is otherwise necessary or advisable including, without limitation, to protect the rights or properties of 713-Tickets or its affiliated companies or when we have reason to believe that disclosing the information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing interference with our rights or properties, whether intentionally or otherwise, or when anyone else could be harmed by such activities. Further, if 713-Tickets or substantially all of its assets are acquired, our customer information will most likely also be transferred in connection with such acquisition.

 

In addition to the circumstances described above in the previous paragraph, 713-Tickets is obligated to collect and provide certain personal information in connection with the sale of any World Cup Ticket for each attendee of a World Cup Event. Specifically, FIFA Federations, Sponsors, the 2006 FIFA World Cup Organizing Committee - Germany, and other venue sponsors regulating ticket and event venues for the World Cup in Germany in 2006 require that each attendee of a World Cup Event provide the following information with respect to each ticket user: (1) name, (2) date of birth, (3) nationality, as shown on attendee's passport, and (4) passport identification number.

 

Accordingly, as a condition to delivery of tickets purchased for any 2006 World Cup event, this information must be provided for each ticket user as part of the checkout procedure, or 713-Tickets will be unable to deliver the World Cup tickets to you. Please also note that the personal information you provide about each ticket user will be maintained in the United States for processing and dissemination to the governing bodies that require it.

 

This policy is effective as of January 1, 2005. If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement, the homepage, and other places we deem appropriate so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. We reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here, by email, or by means of a notice on our home page. Of course, you may always submit concerns regarding our Privacy Statement or our privacy practices via email by clicking here. Please reference the privacy policy in your subject line. 713-Tickets will attempt to respond to all reasonable concerns or inquiries within five business days of receipt. You can also write to us in care of 713-Tickets, 1311 Polk Avenue, Houston, TX 77002, Attn: Privacy Team.

 

We use an outside shipping company to fulfill orders, and a credit card processing company to bill you for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any other purposes.

 

Service Providers

We use Event Inventory and VeriSign to provide secure credit card data collection and transmission on our site. When you buy tickets, we will share billing information as necessary for Event Inventory and VeriSign to provide that service. Please note that credit card transactions are also securely processed through a bank terminal located on our premises.

Event Inventory and VeriSign are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose. Thank you for using 713-Tickets!

Technology

Event Inventory provides a seamless integrated portal through our website which hosts secure server software that safely encrypts all of your personal information, including credit card information. The process of encryption takes the information you enter and converts it into bits of code that are securely transmitted over the Internet. This scrambled data cannot be read as the information travels over the Internet.

 

Once your encrypted personal information is received by Event Inventory's secure server, it is translated back into its original form and stored in their off-line database. Your credit card information is not transmitted over the Internet again. Our office is notified immediately of your web order which we fulfill right away by processing your credit card in-house via a credit card terminal, just as you would find in any retail outlet.
