Through various features on the Services, we may collect personal information, which is information that is linked to a
specific, identifiable individual ("Personal Information"), such as first and last name, email addresses, postal addresses,
and telephone numbers. We may also collect other information about you, such as payment and other information about
your transactions with us, demographic information (e.g., your gender, ZIP code, or similar information), information about
the device you are using to access the Services, and information about your preferences and interests. Note that we may
de-identify Personal Information we have received, turning it into non-personal information. This is sometimes accomplished
using a mathematical process (commonly known as a hash function) to convert information into a code. The code does not
identify you directly, but it may be used to connect your activity and interests.

If we combine demographic, preference or similar information with the Personal Information we collect, we will treat the
combined information as Personal Information under this Privacy Policy. The information we collect may be provided by you
or by a third party or may be collected automatically. We may combine the information we collect online with information we
collect in our venues or elsewhere offline.

Our Services are intended for a general audience. Certain Services, features, or promotions may be restricted to those over
the ages of 18 or 21 as described on the applicable Service and you understand that you may not use any such Service if
you are not eligible. None of our Services is intended for use by or targeted to children younger than the age of 13. We do
not knowingly collect Personal Information from children younger than the age of 13. If we learn that we have inadvertently
collected Personal Information from a user who is younger than age 13, we will delete that information from our active
databases. If you are the parent of a child younger than 13 and believe that we have inadvertently collected Personal
Information from your child, please contact us at

Information You Provide

We may ask you to provide certain information to us (including your Personal Information) when you use the Services or
engage with us offline. You may choose not to provide certain information; however, choosing to do so may prevent you
from being able to take advantage of some of our offered features, from participating in some events or promotions, or from
conducting transactions.

Community Forums and User Submission

The Services may provide you the opportunity to submit information to us, through interactive features, and through other
communication functionality ("Community Forums"). You may choose, through such features or otherwise, to submit or
post “User Submissions” (which means any and all information and content that you submit or post to the Services,
including, without limitation, photos, audio, video, messages, text, files, or other content you provide us and as further
described in our Terms of Use). Your use of any Community Forum is subject to our Terms of Use, including, without limitation, the “User Content” section. Some Community Forums
may be operated by a third party and your submissions also may be subject to the third party’s privacy policy and terms of

Please note that certain information, such as your name and/or state of residence, may be publicly displayed on the Services
along with your User Submissions. Note also that anything you submit through a public-facing Community Forum may be
made public – others will have access to your User Submission and may use it or share it with third parties. We are not
responsible for the actions of third parties and the use of your information and other User Submissions by such third parties
is not subject to the protections of this Privacy Policy.

Social Networking Features

The Services may permit or facilitate interactions with an interactive third-party website or service ("Social Networking
), such as enabling you to “like” or “share” content on a social-media network like Facebook or Twitter. If you
choose to share content or otherwise post information from or via the Services through a Social Networking Feature, that
information may be public and the third party may have access to information about you and your use of our Services.
Similarly, if you post information on a third-party platform that references us (for example, by using a hashtag associated
with us in your post), your post may be published on the Services or otherwise in accordance with the terms of that third
party. You may also choose to use a Social Networking Feature in a way that connects that third-party service with our
Service (such as signing into a Service with your credentials from another website or service). Doing so may allow us to
collect (or the third party to share) information about you, including without limitation Personal Information. We may also
receive information about you if other users of a third-party website give us access to their profiles and you are one of their
“connections.” The information we collect is subject to this Privacy Policy. The information collected and stored by the third
party remains subject to the third party’s privacy practices, including without limitation, whether the third party continues to
share information with us, the types of information shared, and your choices with regard to what is visible to others on that
third-party website or service. The third party may allow you to remove the application or feature, in which case we will no
longer collect information about you through the application or feature, but we may retain the information previously

Information Provided by Third Parties
We may obtain information about you from third parties, including our joint marketing partners, third-party websites, users
who provide us with information about others (i.e. purchasing a gift card for someone else), or other unrelated third parties.
The information third parties provide may include Personal Information, demographic information, and information on your 
preferences. We may combine information about you that we have with information we obtain from others. In those cases,
we will apply this Privacy Policy to the combined information.

Send-to-a-Friend Features
If you send a friend a communication from the Services, the information you provide (e.g., name and email address) is used
on a one-time basis to facilitate the communication and is not used for any other marketing purpose unless we obtain
consent from that person.

Information the Services Automatically Collect When You Interact with Us
ECI and our third-party service providers (including analytics providers, advertising partners, and third-party content
providers) may automatically or passively receive and record certain information about your use of our online Services
whenever you visit or interact with those Services, such as: your IP address and mobile or similar device identifier; browser
type; type of device you use to access the Services; the domain name from which you arrived at the Services; the time of
day you visit our Services; and specific pages or areas of the Service you visit ("Usage Information"). This information
helps us to create a better experience for our users and to provide you with targeted advertising.

We may collect or infer certain location data regarding your use of the Services (“Location Data") and may link that Location
Data to other information we have collected about you. We may directly collect precise Location Data from the device you
use to access our online Services if you have opted-in to such collection. You may be able to turn off the collection of precise
Location Data through your device settings. However, please note that we may still be able to infer your approximate location
through other information we collect, such as IP address.

The methods used to collect Usage Information may include:

Cookies and Local Storage
“Cookies” and local storage are pieces of information (data files) transferred to an individual’s browser on their device when
the device is used to visit a Service. These technologies are able to store a unique identifier for a device to allow a certain
Internet site to recognize the device whenever the device is used to visit the site. These technologies may be used for
many purposes by us and our third-party service providers, such as automatically collecting Usage Information, enabling
features, remembering your preferences, and providing you with targeted advertising elsewhere online. If you do not want
to accept cookies, you can block them by adjusting the settings on your Internet browser. You can find more information
about cookies and how they work at

Certain browsers or browser add-ons, such as Adobe Flash, may provide additional local data storage mechanisms that
are used in a manner similar to cookies, and some of the content included on our Services may make use of this local
storage. For example, a Flash cookie is a data file placed on a device via the Adobe Flash plug-in that may be built into or
downloaded by you onto your device. Flash cookies may be used for various purposes, including, without limitation, enabling
a Flash feature and remembering your preferences. For more information about Flash and the privacy choices Adobe offers,
visit If you choose to disable
cookies, to adjust your Flash privacy settings on your device, or to otherwise restrict local storage, some features of the
Services may not function properly.

Web Beacons
Small graphic images or other web programming code called web beacons (also known as “pixel tags,” “1x1 GIFs,” or “clear
GIFs”) may be included in our web pages and email messages. Web beacons may be invisible to you, but any electronic
image or other web programming code inserted into a web page or email can act as a web beacon. Web beacons or similar
technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors to a Service, to monitor
how users navigate the Service, to count how many emails that were sent were actually opened or to count how many
particular links were actually viewed.

Embedded Scripts
An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Services,
such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your device from our server or a third-party service
provider, is active only while you are connected to a Service, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.
In addition, we may use a variety of other technologies that collect similar information for security and fraud detection

We may use information collected from or about you, including your Personal Information and Usage Information, to:
• allow you participate in the Services, or features or activities we offer, including any promotion or loyalty program we
• process a transaction, verify your identity or eligibility, and send you confirmations and receipts;
• send you information and special offers from us, our advertisers, or third-party business partners;
• respond to your inquiries and provide customer service;
• protect you, ourselves, or any third party from errors, misuse of the Services, fraud, or any criminal activity;
• help us serve you better, including tailoring content, recommendations, offers, and advertisements we display to you
• improve the Services or our venues, products and services and for legal, regulatory and internal business purposes;
• assess your employment application for a position with ECI and prepare related governmental and internal statistics
• detect and troubleshoot problems, resolve disputes, and enforce applicable agreements and policies for the Services;
• fulfill any other purpose consistent with this Privacy Policy, for purposes disclosed to you at the time of collection, or
with your consent.

We may share non-personal information, such as Usage Information, demographic data, hashed or otherwise de-identified
data, and aggregated user statistics, with third parties in our discretion. We do not share your Personal Information with
third parties for those third parties' own marketing purposes unless we provide you the opportunity to opt-in or opt-out prior
to such sharing. In addition, we may share your Personal information in the circumstances described below or elsewhere in
this Privacy Policy, as disclosed at the time you provide information, or otherwise with your consent.

Third Parties Providing Services on Our Behalf
We may use third-party service providers to perform certain services on our behalf, such as: hosting the Services or Service
features; processing transactions and payments; providing marketing assistance and data analysis or enhancement;
sending communications on our behalf; or performing other administrative services. We may give these service providers
access to your information (including Personal Information) so that they can carry out the services they are performing for
you or for ECI.

When You Agree to Receive Information from Third Parties or Request That We Share Your Information.
You may be presented with an opportunity to receive information or marketing offers from one or more third parties. If you
agree at that time to have your Personal Information shared, your Personal Information will be disclosed to that third party
(or parties) and will be subject to the privacy policy and practices of that third party. We are not responsible for the privacy
policies and practices of third parties, and, if you later decide that you no longer want to receive communications from a
third party, you will need to contact that third party directly. You also may request, sometimes through your use of an
interactive feature or third-party application, that we share information about you with a third party, and we will typically do
so under those circumstances.

Cobranded Partners
Cobranded partners are entities with whom we jointly offer a service or feature. Services or features that we may offer in
conjunction with a cobranded partner may include Promotions (defined below), concerts and other events, and ticket sales,
among other things. You can typically tell when you are accessing or participating in a service or feature that we are offering
in conjunction with a cobranded partner because the cobranded partner's name will be featured prominently in marketing
materials for the service or feature. You may be asked to provide information about yourself utilize a service or feature
offered in conjunction with a cobranded partner. In doing so, you may be providing your information to both us and to the
cobranded partner, or we may share your information directly with the cobranded partner. Please note that the cobranded
partner's policies will apply its collection and use of your information, not this policy.

Business Transfers and Transitions
In the event ECI goes through a transition (such as a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy or sale of all or a portion of its assets
or of any subsidiary/affiliate, including, without limitation, during the course of any due diligence process), your information
(including your Personal Information) will likely be among the assets transferred. By providing your Personal Information,
you agree that we may transfer such information to the acquiring entity without your further consent.

Sweepstakes, Contests, & Promotions
We may offer sweepstakes, contests, and other promotions (any, a “Promotion”) that may require registration. By
participating in a Promotion, you are agreeing to the provisions, conditions, or official rules that govern that Promotion, which
may contain specific requirements of you (including, except where prohibited by law, allowing the sponsor(s) of the
Promotion to use your name, voice, likeness or other indicia of persona in advertising or marketing materials). If you choose
to enter a Promotion, Personal Information may be disclosed to third parties (including, without limitation, a co-sponsor) or
the public in connection with the administration of such Promotion, such as in connection with winner selection, prize
fulfillment, and as required by law or permitted by the Promotion's terms or official rules (such as on a winners list).

Administrative and Legal Reasons
ECI reserves the right to use or disclose any information (including Personal Information) as needed to satisfy any law,
regulation or legal request; to protect the integrity of the Services; to fulfill your requests; to cooperate in any law enforcement
investigation, an investigation on a public safety matter, or an investigation into claims of intellectual-property infringement;
to protect and defend the legal rights or property of ECI, our subsidiaries, affiliates, and shareholders, any Service or its
users, or any other party; or, in an emergency, to protect the health and safety of our users or the general public. This
includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and security purposes.

Employment Applications.
If you apply for a job with ECI or any of our subsidiaries or affiliates, we or our service provider(s) may ask you to provide
self-identifying information (such as veteran status, gender, and ethnicity) in conjunction with laws and regulations enforced
by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and other federal, state and local regulatory agencies. Providing such
self-identifying information is voluntary, but if you do provide such information, we and/or our service provider may submit
that information to the appropriate government or regulatory agencies to fulfill reporting requirements and use that
information to defend against employment-related complaints.

Please note that we may utilize a careers portal that is operated by a third party, in which case your use of the careers portal
will be subject to the third party’s privacy practices as disclosed on the portal, and not to this policy.

The Services may link to or incorporate websites, advertising or content hosted and served by third parties over which we
have no control and which are governed by the privacy policies and business practices of those third parties. ECI is not
responsible for the privacy practices or business practices of any third party.

We may work with network advertisers, ad agencies, analytics service providers, and other vendors to serve third-party
advertisements on the Services; to serve our advertisements elsewhere online; and to provide us with information regarding
use of and traffic on the Services (including without limitation the pages viewed and the actions users take when visiting the
Services) and the effectiveness of our advertisements. For example, if you click on an advertisement for any ECI venue or
other product/service, our service provider(s) may be able to tell us the advertisement you clicked on and where you were
viewing the advertisement; likewise, if you click on an advertisement you see on our Service, our service provider(s) may
be able to tell which page you were visiting on our Service and pass that information to the advertiser. The advertisements
you see may be served by one or more third parties, who may use information about your activities on the Services, and
other websites and services you visit across the various devices you use, to provide you targeted advertising based upon
your interests. Our service providers may collect certain information about your visits to and activity on the Services and
other websites and services and may use this information to target advertising to you.
These service providers may set and access their own tracking technologies on your device (including without
limitation cookies and web beacons) and may otherwise collect or have access to information about you (such as Usage
Information and device identifier). Some of these parties may collect Personal Information over time when you visit the
Services or other online websites and services. Cookies and web beacons, including without limitation those set by thirdparty network advertisers, may be used to (among other things): target advertisements, prevent you from seeing the same advertisements too many times, and conduct research regarding the usefulness of certain advertisements to you. We may
share certain information such as device identifiers, Usage Information, records of transactions you conduct on our Services
or offline, and de-identified information with third-party advertising companies, analytics providers, and other vendors for
advertising and analytics purposes.

We use a variety of service providers to perform advertising and analytics services, and some of these companies may be

apps, and online services. You can learn about Google’s practices by going to, and
opt out of them by downloading the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on, available

also download the AppChoices app at to opt out of the delivery of interest-based
advertisements in participating mobile apps.

receive non-targeted advertisements while online.

Some Internet browsers may be configured to send “Do Not Track” signals to the online services that you visit. There is no
consensus among industry participants as to what “Do Not Track” means in this context. Like many websites and online
services, our Services do not alter their practices when they receive a “Do Not Track” signal from a visitor’s browser. To find
out more about “Do Not Track,” please visit

We employ commercially reasonable security methods and technologies to help secure your Personal Information.

to you. Note that we reserve the right to send you certain email or postal communications relating to your use of our Services,
service announcements, notices of changes to this Privacy Policy, or similar administrative or transactional messages, and
these transactional account messages may be unaffected if you choose to opt-out from marketing communications. If you

Pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1798.83, residents of the State of California have the right to request from
companies with which they conduct business information relating to third parties to which the company has disclosed certain
categories of personal information during the preceding year for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. Alternatively,
the law provides that a company may comply, as ECI does, by disclosing in its privacy policy that it provides consumers
choice (opt-out or opt-in) regarding sharing personal information with third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing
purposes, and information on how to exercise that choice. As stated above in this Privacy Policy, ECI provides you choice
prior to sharing your Personal Information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes. If you do not opt-in or if you 
choose to opt-out at the time ECI offers that choice, ECI does not share your information with that identified third party for
its direct marketing purposes.

If you are a California resident and you have questions about our practices with respect to sharing information with third
parties for their direct marketing purposes and your ability to exercise choice, please send your request to the following
email address: or write to us at the following mailing address: Waterside District, 601 East Pratt
Street, 5th Floor, Baltimore, MD 21202, Attn: Marketing/Privacy Feedback. You must put the statement "Your California
Privacy Rights" in the subject field of your email or include it in your writing if you choose to write to us at the designated
mailing address. You must include your name, street address, city, state, and zip code. We are not responsible for notices
that are not labeled or sent properly, or do not have complete information.


We reserve the right to change or modify this Privacy Policy in our discretion at any time and will notify you of material
changes by posting the changed or modified Privacy Policy on our Services. We may also provide notice to you in other
ways in our discretion, such as through contact information you have provided. Any changes will be effective immediately
upon the posting of the revised Privacy Policy unless otherwise specified, and your continued use of the Services after the
effective date of the revised Privacy Policy (or such other act as specified in the revised Privacy Policy) will constitute your
consent to those changes. However, we will not, without your consent, use your Personal Information in a manner materially
different than what was stated at the time your Personal Information was collected.
