We collect information to provide better services to our stakeholders.

Please note that if you decide to set your browser to block cookies, some features and services on our site may not work properly because we may not be able to recognize you. In addition, any offers we may provide when you visit our site may not be as relevant to you or tailored to your interests.

We may collect and store information (including personal and non-personal information) locally on your device and within your web browser application. Information we collect when you are signed in to the Carnegie Hall website, in addition to information we obtain about you from third parties, may be associated with your Carnegie Hall Account. When information is associated with your Carnegie Hall Account, we treat it as personal information.

If you contact us in writing, please include your old and new contact information so that we can make the appropriate corrections. Please note that in order to verify that we are communicating with you or someone authorized to act on your behalf, we may make access to your personal information conditional on the verification of certain information previously provided by you.
We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of 13. Any portion of the carnegiehall.org website intended for children under 13 will not request any personal information. Children under 13 should not provide any personal information to Carnegie Hall. In the event that we learn that we have inadvertently gathered personal information from children under 13, we will take reasonable measures to promptly erase such information from our records.
Carnegie Hall uses the information we collect about and from you in connection with the operation of our business (for example, to communicate with you concerning events to which you have purchased tickets), and to offer an enhanced, personalized online experience on our site.
The information we collect allows us to:
When you contact us, we keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements. We use information collected from cookies and web beacons to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services.
With the exceptions described below, we will not share personal information about you with any other entity.
The non-personal and personal information that we collect may be transferred to and stored in the United States, and any other countries in which we might operate, including through service providers. In some of these countries, the privacy and data protection laws regarding when information may be accessed and processed may differ from those in the country in which you live. By agreeing to the terms of this policy, you consent to the transfer of your non-personal and personal information outside of the EEA, in accordance with this policy.
When you sign up for a Carnegie Hall Account, you will be given the opportunity to opt in to receive promotional emails from Carnegie Hall. If you choose to opt in, you can later choose to opt out of receiving additional promotional emails from Carnegie Hall by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in any such email, or by submitting such a request by email at email@example.com or by postal mail at the following address:

You can also sign in to your online account on carnegiehall.org to opt out of some or all of your email subscriptions.
Please note that once we receive your request, it may take an additional period of time for your opt-out to become effective. Your unsubscribe or email preference change will be processed promptly, within 10 business days.
Note that if you opt out of our promotional communications, we may still email or communicate with you from time to time if we need to provide you with information or if we need to request information from you with respect to a transaction initiated by you or for other legitimate non-marketing reasons.
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using secure sockets layer (sometimes referred to as “SSL”) software that encrypts information you input. You can further help to ensure your security by taking a few simple precautions. For instance, you should protect against unauthorized access to your Carnegie Hall Account username and password, and to your computer. You should also be sure to sign off when you have finished using a shared computer.
If you make a purchase through the carnegiehall.org site, we will use your credit card number only to process your payment and will not use it for marketing purposes. For reasons of security, credit card information is not stored on our servers. We will retain purchase information for our records, and only share with third parties as provided in this policy. We employ technical and physical safeguards to help prevent unauthorized access to user information that we maintain. Since no safeguards are one hundred percent secure, we cannot guarantee that our safeguards will prevent every unauthorized attempt to access, use or disclose personal information. Please notify us if you become aware of any issues.
Our website does not follow Do Not Track settings in your browser because we use third-party services to conduct certain activities, such as Google Analytics, Google AdSense and Canopy Labs, which do not follow DNT settings.
Please note that this policy may change from time to time, and use of personal information that we gather is subject to the policy in effect at the time of use. You should check the carnegiehall.org site periodically to see recent changes.
