What we collect and how do we use it
When you place an order with us (for a subscription or ticket purchase), we need to know your name, day and evening telephone numbers, email address, postal address, credit card number and credit card expiration date. If you order a concession or student subscription or concert ticket, we also need information about your pension type and number or details about your full-time enrolment. This allows us to process and fill your order and to notify you of your order status.
When you subscribe for services like...
Know The Score email bulletins, special invitations or promotions, we need only your name, email address, the city in which you live and the Musica Viva series to which you subscribe (or advice that you are not currently a subscriber). We use these details only to send the appropriate information you opted-in for. You can unsubscribe from our email bulletins at anytime.

We also monitor customer traffic patterns and site usage to help us develop the design and layout of the site, and welcome constructive comments from visitors.
Booking Forms for Series and Concerts include an optional section where you can help us by providing demographic information that will assist us to plan and provide you with products and services that are likely to be of interest.
