Your information may be shared with us by independent organizations, e.g., other performance venues, arts organizations with which we work, third-party ticket vendors, applications providers and survey providers.

We may collect and store information (including personal and non-personal information) locally on your device and within your web browser application. We may also store such information in our databases.
For further information on international transfers of your personal information outside of the European Economic Area (the “EEA”) for individual communications originating in the EEA, please see below.
3. Retention of Your Personal Information
We will retain your personal information for as long as we reasonably require it for legal or business purposes. This period will be determined on the basis of applicable legal requirements and business purposes. When such period ends or we no longer need your personal information, we will securely delete or destroy it.
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.

A. Operation of Our Business and Website and to Perform a Contract with You
Carnegie Hall uses the information we collect from and about you in connection with the operation of our business and nonprofit mission, and to carry out a contract with you (for example, to communicate with you regarding events to which you have purchased tickets), and to offer an enhanced, personalized online experience on our website and online products.

B. Where We Have Your Consent
C. Where We Have Justifiable Reason (including a Legitimate Interest)
With the exceptions described below, we will not share personal information about you with any other entity.
1. Our Service Providers
We provide your information to trusted third-party companies to perform services on our behalf, including payment processing, data analysis, e-mail delivery, hosting services, customer service, and to assist in our marketing efforts. We direct all such third-party service providers to maintain the confidentiality of the information disclosed to them and not to use your information for any purpose other than to provide services on Carnegie Hall’s behalf.
2. Organizers of Concerts and Special Events at Carnegie Hall
We share personal information that you give us with third-party organizers of concerts and special events at Carnegie Hall for their direct-marketing purposes, but only if you purchase tickets to their concerts and events, and have opted in to such communications.
3. Purposes of Safety, Security, and Compliance with the Law
Your information and the contents of your private online communications may be accessed and disclosed (a) in response to legal process (for example, a court order, search warrant, or subpoena); (b) when we have a good-faith belief that we are required to disclose the information in response to legal process; (c) in other circumstances in which Carnegie Hall believes the carnegiehall.org website or a Carnegie Hall online product is being used in the commission of a crime (including exchanging information with other companies and organizations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit-risk reduction); (d) when we have a good-faith belief that there is an emergency that poses a threat to the safety of you or another person; and (e) when necessary to protect the rights or property of Carnegie Hall, including to enforce the Terms and Conditions of our website or to render the service you have requested.
4. Contest Sponsors
We may occasionally present a special contest, sweepstake or other promotion on the carnegiehall.org website, and the promotion may be sponsored by a third party. To qualify for entry, we may ask you to provide personal information. If we plan to share the personal information we request from you with the promotion’s sponsor, we will notify you at the point at which the information is collected, such as in the promotion’s official rules.
5. In Connection With a Sale or Merger
In the event that Carnegie Hall undergoes a business transition such as a merger, acquisition by another organization, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, we may transfer all of your information, including personal information, to the successor organization in such transition. If material changes to our privacy practices will occur as a result of the business transition, we will notify you of the business transition prior to transferring your personal information.
E. Transfers Outside of the EEA
If originating in the EEA, we may transfer your personal information outside of the EEA to Carnegie Hall in the United States for the purpose of providing services to you and promoting our nonprofit mission. If the United States does not offer the same level of data protection as your country of residence in the EEA, we take measures to ensure an appropriate level of protection for your personal information.
We may also make similar transfers outside of the EEA where you have explicitly consented or where we consider this to be necessary for: (i) us to perform the contract with you; (ii) us to perform a contract with another party, which was made in your interests; or (iii) important reasons of public interest or to establish exercise of defend legal claims.
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.

A cookie is a small data file that websites can place on your device when you visit. Cookies were designed to be a reliable mechanism for websites to remember stateful information (such as items added in the shopping cart) or to record the user’s browsing activity (including clicking particular buttons, logging in, or recording which pages you visited in the past).
B. Types of Cookies We Use
We use two types of cookies: persistent and session. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to our site. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by carnegiehall.org or our other online products when you return to the site. Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).
C. Third Party Cookies
In addition to cookies that we use on our website or other online products, third parties may set cookies when you visit our website or online products. Third party cookies originate from a domain that is different from the domain of the website you’re visiting. Your browser will connect to the third party’s web servers to retrieve the content and they are able to set or read their own cookies on your device. We don’t control how third parties use their cookies, so we recommend that you check each of their cookie policies to see how they’re using them and how you can manage them.
D. How You Can Control Cookies
Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their settings preferences. However, if you limit the ability of websites to set cookies, you may worsen your overall user experience, since it will no longer be personalized to you.
Where cookies are not necessary for us to provide the services you have requested, we will ask you to consent to their use when you first visit our site. If you wish to manage the cookies we use, you can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, which lets you choose whether or not to accept it, or set your browser to accept any cookies automatically. Please note that, if you decide not to allow certain cookies, some features and services on our sites may not work properly because we may not be able to recognize you. For more information about cookies, including how to set your browser to reject cookies, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.
You may wish to create a Carnegie Hall account to enrich your relationship with us. An account is created when purchasing subscriptions, single tickets and memberships. An account is also created when you make a donation, or you create an account to access news and information about upcoming concerts and educational programs. When creating a Carnegie Hall account, you will be given the opportunity to opt in to receive promotional e-mails, customer service notifications, newsletters and other information from Carnegie Hall. If you choose to opt in, you can later choose to opt out of receiving additional promotional e-mails from Carnegie Hall by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in any such e-mail, or by submitting such a request by e-mail at email@example.com or by postal mail at the following address:
881 Seventh Avenue
New York, NY 10019
Attn: Web Development
You can also sign in to your online account on carnegiehall.org to opt-in or subsequently opt out of some or all of your e-mail subscriptions.
Please note that, once we receive your request, it may take an additional period of time for your subsequent opt-out to become effective. Your unsubscribe or e-mail preference change will be processed promptly, within 10 business days.
Note that if you choose not to opt in to receiving our promotional communications, we may still e-mail 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.
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.
Do Not Track (DNT) is a concept that has been promoted by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission for the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism for allowing Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites by using browser settings. The World Wide Web Consortium has been working with industry groups, Internet browsers, technology companies, and regulators to develop a DNT technology standard.
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.
