How we use your information

  • Our site uses cookies to keep track of your shopping cart and to make sure you see content specific to your interests.
  • Our site's registration form requires users to give us contact information (like name and email address). We use contact information from the registration form to send the user information about TWB. The user's contact information is also used to contact the visitor when necessary. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; you may do so on the “Join our Mailing List” page of the “News & Media” section on our site.
  • Our site uses an order form for customers to request tickets, products, and services. We collect visitors' contact information (like email addresses and credit card numbers). Contact information from the order form is used to ship orders and send information about TWB. The user's contact information is also used to get in touch with the visitor when necessary. Users may choose to "opt-in" or "opt-out" of receiving future mailings; you may do so in the “Join our Mailing List” page of the “News & Media” section on our site. Financial information that is collected is used to bill the customer for products and services.
  • Our online surveys ask visitors for contact information (like email addresses) and demographic information (like zip code, age, or income level). We use contact data from our surveys to determine how best to serve our patrons and Web site users. We use this data to tailor our visitor's experience at our site, showing them content that they might be interested in, and displaying the content according to their indicated preferences.
