PRIVACY POLICY

Last updated: 12/31/2019

This Privacy Policy explains how HomeTown Ticketing, Inc. (“HomeTown”) collects, uses, maintains and discloses information collected from users (“You” or “Your”) of our services. HomeTown is located in Columbus, Ohio, USA, but many of our services are provided from our computer network across the world. This privacy policy applies to the products and services offered by HomeTown, including our websites (“Sites”), mobile apps, and our cloud-based ticketing platform (“Box Offices”), collectively “Services”. This Privacy Policy does not apply when a customer (“Partner”) of our ticketing platform or other branded services provides a Privacy Policy that explicitly covers third-party service providers such as HomeTown.

Personal information

We may collect personal information from You in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, when You visit our Sites or Partner Box Offices, register or place an order, fill out a form, and in connection with other activities, features or resources we make available through our Services. You may be asked for, as appropriate, name, email address, mailing address, phone number, and payment card information. In addition, Partners may request further information, which they may control or customize, to assist in fulfilling an order. You may, however, use our Services anonymously. We will collect personal information from You only if You voluntarily submit such information to us. You can always refuse to supply personal information, except that it may prevent You from using many of our Services.

HomeTown does not store full payment card information. This information is handled directly by our credit card processor at Level 4 PCI compliance, using “vault” technology.

Using an HomeTown mobile app for scanning tickets may involve the use of your device’s camera to detect barcodes. We do not receive, store, or control images from the camera.
