3. Sharing of Personal Data
We are committed to maintaining your trust, and we want you to understand when and with whom we may share the Personal Data we collect. We will share your Personal Data with third parties only in the ways that are described in this Privacy Notice.
a) Service Providers: In order to maintain a legal relationship between you and us, and/or to comply with the terms thereof, we may share your Personal Data with service providers that perform certain functions or services on our behalf (such as to host the Services, fulfill orders, provide products and services, manage databases, perform analyses, process credit card payments, provide customer service, develop our websites or mobile applications, or send communications for us). These service providers are authorized to use your Personal Data only as necessary to perform these services for us.

c) Select Business Partners: We may share your Personal Data with select business partners so that they can provide you with special offers, promotional materials, and other materials that may be of interest to you. For example, you may be presented with an opportunity to have certain Personal Data shared with our third party business partners when you enter a contest or sweepstakes or elect to receive marketing offers or other information. If you do not elect to have your Personal Data shared, it will not be shared with such third parties. We take measures to help ensure that our partners protect the confidentiality, integrity, and security of any information we share with them. However, we are not responsible for the privacy practices of our business partners, which may use your information for their own purposes.
d) Business Transfer: If we sell all or part of our business, or make a sale or transfer of assets, or are otherwise involved in a merger or business transfer, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy, a business reorganization, or similar event, we may transfer your information as part of such transaction.
f) Interactive Features: You may share Personal Data with third parties when you post information to a user profile or a public area of the Services, such as a chat room, forum, blog, or other community tool. If you post to these interactive features, it will be publicly available and you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties, without any liability to us, as we do not decide on such processing of Personal Data. We cannot ensure that parties who have access to such information will respect your privacy. Please exercise caution when using these features.
Transfers of Personal Data mentioned in items a), e) and g) above, do not require your consent. However, the rest of the transfers do require your consent, and, as such, you may use the mechanisms provided herein to state your refusal for those remaining transfers of Personal Data.
Aggregate and De-identified Information: We may share aggregate information and/or other de-identified information (i.e., different to Personal Data), such as demographic and usage statistics, with advertisers, sponsors or other third parties for any reason at our sole discretion. We may also allow third parties to place and read their own cookies, pixel tags, and similar technologies to collect aggregate information and/or other de-identified information (i.e., different to Personal Data) through the Services. For example, our third-party service providers may use these technologies to collect information that helps us with traffic measurement, research, and analytics.
4. Social Networking Services
We have worked with certain third-party social media providers to offer you their social networking services through our Services. For example, you can use third-party social networking services, including but not limited to Facebook, Twitter, and others to share Personal Data about your experience on our Services with your friends and followers on those social networking services. These social networking services may be able to collect your IP address, your activities on our Services, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. These third-party social networking services may also notify your friends, both on our Services and on the social networking services themselves, that you are a user of our Services or about your use of our Services, in accordance with applicable law and their own privacy policies. If you choose to access or make use of third-party social networking services, we may receive Personal Data about you that you have made available to those social networking services, including information about your contacts on those social networking services. You also may be able to link an account from a social networking service (e.g., Facebook, Twitter) to an account through our Services. This may allow you to use your credentials from the other site or service to sign in to access certain features on our Services. If you link your account from a third-party site or service, we may collect Personal Data from those third-party accounts, and any Personal Data that we collect will be governed by this Privacy Notice.
6. Links To Other Web Sites
The Services may contain links to other websites or online services that are operated and maintained by third parties and that are not under the control of or maintained by us. Such links do not constitute an endorsement by us of those other websites, the content displayed therein, or the persons or entities associated therewith. This Privacy Notice does not apply to this third-party content. We are not responsible for the privacy policies, practices or content of such other websites or online services. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of these third-party websites or services.

If you no longer wish to receive these types of communications, you may turn them off at the device level.

We use mobile analytics software to allow us to better understand the functionality of our mobile applications on your phone. This software may record information such as how often you use the application, the events that occur within the application, aggregated usage, performance data, and where the application was downloaded from. We do not link the information we store within the analytics software to any personally identifiable information you submit within the mobile application.
We may work in conjunction with third party partners, as provided herein, who may use technologies such as geofencing and beacons to identify fans attending a game, and contact fans via an in-app feature in order to provide a better stadium experience. To opt-out of geofencing, you may disable the app's location permissions on your device.
We have adopted reasonable and appropriate security procedures to help protect against loss, misuse, and unauthorized access to the Personal Data you provide to us. Please note, however, that no data transmission or storage can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Data and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any Personal Data you disclose or transmit to the Services and cannot be responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your Personal Data.
