At Ticketmaster we care about the security of our users, which is why we ensure and protect their privacy.

Through its website, www.ticketmaster.es, Ticketmaster makes available to you a service of advance ticket sales, providing the public and users with ticket purchases, operating on behalf of the promoter in their distribution.

The current privacy policy may vary with time due to possible legislative and jurisprudential changes, or the criteria followed by the Spanish Agency of Data Protection and/or the competent authority at any given time. This is why Ticketmaster reserves the right to amend this Privacy policy in order to adapt it to the legislative or jurisprudential innovations that are in force at the time in which www.ticketmaster.es is entered.

Both access to the websites of www.ticketmaster.es and the use that may be made of the information and contents included in them, will be the exclusive responsibility of whoever produces it. Therefore, the use that may be made of the information, images, contents and/or products pointed out and accessible through it, will be subject to the national or international legislation applicable, as well as to the General Conditions of this website and to the principles of good faith and licit use by the users, who will be entirely responsible for this access and correct use. The users will be obliged to make reasonable use of the services or contents, under the principle of good faith and with respect to the legislation in force, the moral use, public order, to good practices, to the rights of third parties or the company itself, everything according to the possibilities and ends for which they are conceived. Ticketmaster will not be liable, whether directly or indirectly, for damages or shortfall in earnings, deriving from the improper use of the services or contents made by the users or third parties.

WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR DATA?

Just by looking at the website, users do not provide any personal information and nor are they obliged to do so.

To accede to specific functions of our website, such as making purchases, receiving information about events, shows, promotions, etc., it is necessary for you to provide us with your personal data. On including this information you guarantee us that the data you provide us with responds to your true identity and that it is current and complete at the time you provide us with it.

To achieve the provision of the service required by the user, Ticketmaster may communicate the data and essential information of the user to the companies associated with the events, such as venues and promoters, if it is necessary that these companies contact the user or provide them with information regarding the event or show for which the user has bought a ticket.

The registered user in Ticketmaster will be able to accede to the platform of purchasing services through the website www.ticketmaster.es, as well as the websites of third parties, companies or promoters associated with Ticketmaster to provide its users with an optimum distribution service of ticket sales.

Within the virtual platform of Ticketmaster only the Privacy Policy and General Conditions of Ticketmaster will be valid.

The user will easily recognise the Ticketmaster platform for the external symbols, the brand, the logo, etc. and benefit from all the prerogatives as a registered user. Whatever the case, the use of the Ticketmaster virtual platform for buying tickets by third parties will not mean the communication or cession of any data. In all these cases and any other possible situation, Ticketmaster will not share any data of a personal nature without the prior authorisation of the party affected, except for those logical communications that must be undertaken in order to complete the service, limiting this communication for the purposes that justify it.

The information of the databases may be used for the identification of the users and for undertaking statistical studies of the registered users for internal purposes.

Users are informed that the answers to the questions posed in the forms that compile data contained in www.ticketmaster.es are of a voluntary nature, although the refusal to supply the data requested may result in the impossibility of access to the services they require. During the process of compiling data, and whenever data is asked for, the users will be informed of the obligatory or voluntary nature of data compilation. The fields marked with an asterisk (*) included in the forms to be filled out by the user are strictly necessary in order to attend to their request, the inclusion of other data being voluntary.

The financial data compiled is used to authorise the payment and invoice the products and services. On making the purchase on the site, the user gives their consent so that their personal and/or financial data necessary are provided to these third parties if necessary to process the transactions that they undertake with us, such as credit card companies, banks and companies that process the sending in our name. This includes the exchange of information with other companies and organisations for protection against fraud and reduction of credit risk. Except in that previously indicated, Ticketmaster will not share the financial data with third parties without the prior consent of the user.

In the registry process of credit card transactions, all the information sent to our website is coded and therefore protected from third parties. The sending of this sensitive information is done through the SSL security protocol (Secure Socket Layer), which codes the information that you send us before it reaches us to protect it from third parties.

This data of a personal nature that you have provided us with voluntarily will be included in a file of which Ticketmaster is the holder and will be used to process your registration as user, inform you of the diverse events and shows that may be of interest to you, as well as Ticketmaster promotions and inform you of the process of your purchase if this were the case. Additionally, we inform you that the database information may be used to identify the users and for the undertaking of statistical studies of the registered users.

Ticketmaster will not reveal the personal information that you provide us with on the website to third parties, except when the revelation is demanded by the legislation in force, by judicial order, or by a competent authority, as well as when the essential data must be communicated for logical reasons in providing the service or it is expressly requested, the user giving their consent.

All the data provided by e-mail or electronic forms will be treated according to the legislation in force regarding protection of personal data, and in all cases will be confidential for the personnel of Ticketmaster who process this information.

Ticketmaster, as the party responsible for this file, promises to respect the confidentiality of your information of a personal nature.

YOUR RIGHTS

The user has the right to accede to their information, rectify it if the data is wrong, or oppose the treatment of their data and to re-register from the services of Ticketmaster.

Ticketmaster will request, at the same time as the data collection, the user’s consent to receive information, publicity, and commercial communications by electronic means about products or services related to the activity of Ticketmaster and its initiatives. At the same time as the data collection, the user will be able to state their desire to receive commercial communications or not.

SECURITY OF YOUR DATA

The ticket sales system uses a secure server and the latest technology in encrypting. A secure server guarantees you the privacy of the data you send by Internet. This privacy is achieved through the SSL protocol.

What is a secure server?

How does the SSL protocol work?

What is the certificate of security?
A certificate of security is awarded by a certifying entity: la Certification Authority. This entity awards this certificate after having controlled the correct configuration of the encrypting process (SSL) and having checked the data of the applicant company. The certificate of secure server is a warded to an entity whose references have been checked, in order to ensure that in fact whoever receives the encrypted data is the party who should receive it.

How can I know that a server is secure?
All the pages that ask for personal information (name, address, etc.) and the pages with credit card data are secure pages. Although you do not see the padlock that appears in the lower right-hand side of your browser (because our pages are divided in frames and some of them, such as the one containing the upper banner, are not secure), you can check the security of our pages by clicking on the icon in the upper part of this page that guarantees the security of the server and the use of a certificate with the maximum degree of encrypting (128 bits).

Who certifies the security of this server?
Our SSl server is certified by Thawte.
