Your Privacy on Stublr
Stublr is a service that provides information and tools that help you obtain and discuss tickets for live entertainment events. We attempt to tailor your experience on Stublr to your specific needs and preferences. In order to have the best experience on Stublr, it is to your advantage to share information with us, other users (and potential users) of the site and in some cases, third party web sites and the services they provide. We understand you may not want some people to have the information you share on our site. As such, we give you controls to determine how and with whom your information is shared. Further, we do not require you to use your real name on the site.
Your activity feed is a published list of your activities and interactions on the site. Activities such as joining the site, becoming friends with other users, and posting content are published and displayed on your profile, the site activity feed and in other places on the site, and in our External Network, when your privacy settings allow us to do so. We do this to support your efforts in finding and discussing tickets for live events.
No Competition Guarantee
We know that many users are concerned that ticket industry web site owners look at their private information to extract trade secrets or information about companies. We do not do that and offer a no competition guarantee. Owners, employees and contractors of Stublr are expressly prohibitted from participating in regular buying and reselling of tickets as a full or part-time business. Though we may occasionally resell a ticket we purchased, it is on a limited basis equivalent to what a normal, non-professional fan might do. We feel strongly that it is important that you can safely share and store information without competitors getting access to it without your permission, therefore, this policy is enforced fully. If you think a Stublr agent is professionally buying and reselling tickets, please report it to admin@Stublr.com and we will investigate the situation and cease relations with the agent if we find they are violating the No Competition Guarantee.
The Information We Collect From Registered Subscribers
If you register as a paid subscriber, we will collect your name, username, e-mail address, address, birthdate (to verifty that you are over 13), company information and a password. Your password will be encrypted to make it difficult for others to intercept and to prevent us from being able to see it. Once you complete registration and log in, you will be able to fill in optional information in your profile and preferences including a bio, your gender and other information that will help us tailor your experience. You can also upload a profile picture. Any information that you provide is done so at your own risk. Although we allow you to post information to private groups, be aware that no security measures are impenetrable or without fault. Further, we cannot control the actions of other Users with whom you choose to share your information. We cannot and do not guarantee that User Generated Content you post on the Site will not be viewed by people you did not intend to share with, though we make a concerted effort to prevent it. We are not responsible for any circumvention or disruption of privacy, whether it is due to our technical errors or other users malicious intent, of security settings on the Site. By using the site, you acknowledge that you understand and accept that, even after removal, copies of User Generated Content may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or if other Users have copied or otherwise stored it independently.
How We Use Your Information
Information provided in your profile and preferences is used to deliver you tailored content and information about events, tickets and other users you might be interested in as well as marketing communications if you elect to receive them. We may also use your profile information to suggest that other users form a friendship with you. This information may be used to help your friends or other users on the network find you when there is overlap in your site-related interests or experiences.
Sharing of Your Personal Information
We may also share your information with third parties as it is relevant in connection with a corporate transaction, such as a divestiture, merger, consolidation, or asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy. We do not sell or rent your personal information for purposes allowing other companies to market to you.
In the event of a sale, merger or acquisition of our company, your account data will be transferred to the other party participating.
Sharing of Aggregate and Non-Personal Information
We may, from time to time, share statistical and anecdotal information about the Stublr Site and the use of it. Such information will be provided in the aggregate and without personally identifying information. It may be provided to the press, bloggers, partners, potential partners or others.
Information We Collect from Non-Registered Users
To help improve user experience and the quality of our content and search results, we collect certain non-personal information from all users of the site, whether they register or not. This information includes that which is commonly collected by many web sites including your IP address, browser type and version, time and duration of visits and page views, referring URL, platform, information on whether you are a new or repeat visitor, history of searches on the site, click activity and exit page information.
No Credit Card Environment
Stublr’s subscription service can be paid for by PayPal only. While you are on the Stublr site, we will never ask you for your credit card information, nor do we need it to help you find tickets or event information. During the sign up process you will be redirected to PayPal to complete your payment and they will likely give you an opportunity or potentially require you to add bank account and/or credit card information. This request is being made by PayPal and we will never see or access your credit card or bank account information. Any tickets listed on our site will be provided or sourced by a third party site. To place an order, you will need to visit that site and may be asked to provide your credit card information there. If another user asks you for your credit card information anywhere on the Stublr site, please do not provide it and send the link or the email from which the request was made to admin@Stublr.com immediately.
Information You Share
User-Generated Content that you provide on the site will be displayed according to your privacy settings for other users to read and interact with through the site. Further, your profile information and User-Generated Content maybe displayed or used to inform other information that is displayed on our External Network. Our use of your profile information, preferences and User-Generated Content is designed to help you and others organize and commemorate your event experience. Our Terms of Service prohibit other site users from copying or otherwise extracting your information and from republishing it. However, as with any information you publish on the Internet, there is no sure way to prevent third parties from doing so. As with any web site, you should exercise caution when deciding what you want to publish on Stublr. User-to-user private messages are not displayed to anyone except for the user to whom the message was sent. As with email, we cannot guarantee that user will not distribute or republish all or part of your message, so you should not send information to parties that you don’t trust. If you comment on another user’s profile or saved search, the content of your message may be visible to other people who have access to the profile or saved search, even if you are not friends with that user and your profile is set to “Friends Only”.
Private forums and other conversation tools that provide limited visibility are intended to allow you to share content with only a very specific set of people. Please be aware that if you participate in private forums, some aspects of your control of your content will fall in the hands of the forum moderator. For example, if you post content to a private forum and the forum moderator then invites a new user that you may or may not know, that new user will be able to see your content. While you can delete any of your posts, there is not guarantee that you will be able to delete it before it is seen by the new user. We encourage all users to discuss with forum moderators their rules for bringing in and announcing new member invitations. However Stublr cannot and will not enforce or porport to enforce any ‘house rules’ arrived at or proclaimed by the private forum moderators or other members of the private forum.
Further, you should know that if a user is invited to a forum they may be able to see the forum description and a list of current members before joining. They will NOT, however, be able to see any content that has been posted in the forum discussions. Additionally, although we generally have better things to do, site admins may, from time to time, monitor private forums for the purpose of enforcing TOS guidelines and for puposes related to the health and well-bieng of the site and our company. It is important to emphasize that, unlike many other presale site owners, we are NOT professional ticket sellers and do not fish for trade secrets. If you have any concerns about this aspect of the policy, we are happy to talk to you about it.
