WHEN WE DISCLOSE YOUR INFORMATION
MSGN may disclose and/or share your information to or with any member of the MSGN Family. Unless otherwise described in this MAPP, MSGN will only disclose or share your information with any non-affiliated third parties under the following circumstances.
Consent: If you consent to the disclosure, we may do so.
Service Providers. We may provide access to your information to select third parties who perform services on our behalf and for any other legitimate business purposes. These third parties provide a variety of services to us, including without limitation, ticket processing, billing, sales, marketing, advertising, market research, fulfillment, data storage, analysis and processing, and legal services.

Interest-Based Advertising and Analytics
Data about your activities on the Application may be collected for use in providing advertising tailored to your individual interests on other websites and online services, as well as in the Application. This is known as interest-based advertising or behavioral advertising. These advertisements may be served by us or we may allow third parties’ advertisements to be served through the Application. These advertisements are sometimes targeted based on your browsing activity over time and across third party websites and services. For instance, a particular advertisement may be served to specific users (e.g., “users in New York”) and may come from third party companies called “ad networks.” “Ad networks” include third party ad servers, ad agencies, ad technology vendors and research firms. Other times, the advertisements are not tailored or targeted based on your browsing on other websites, but rather simply based on how you use and interact with the Application – this is referred to as contextual advertising You may have a choice whether to have your information collected for interest-based advertising purposes, but not contextual advertising. This section of the Policy provides details and explains how to exercise applicable choice.
We participate in advertising services administered by third parties, such as Google. For example, we may use the following features based on Google Analytics for Display Advertising: Remarketing, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, the DoubleClick Campaign Manager integration, and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting. To opt out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising or customize Google Display Network ads, you can visit the Google Ads Settings page.
The ad services may track your activities over time by collecting information through automated means, including through the use of the automated technologies described in this Policy, and they may use this information to show you advertisements that are tailored to your individual interests and/or based on prior use of the Application or your use of other Applications or websites. We and third-party vendors, including Google and others, may use tracking technologies to: (i) inform, optimize, and serve ads based on past visits to the Application; and (ii) to report how our ad impressions, other uses of ad services, and interactions with these ad impressions and ad services are related to visits to the Application.
If you would like to opt-out of receiving personalized ads from third party advertisers and ad networks who are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) or who follow the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising, you may visit the opt-out pages on the NAI website and DAA website. You understand that these opt-out mechanisms are maintained by third parties, not MSGN and MSGN is not responsible for, nor does it control these mechanisms of the third parties who choose to participate in these opt-out programs.
You also may adjust the settings on your device to control receiving in-application advertisements that relate to your interests. If you are using an iOS device, you may opt-out of receiving such in-application advertisements by accessing the following link on your device: http://oo.apple.com. If you are using an Android device and you do not wish to receive tailored in-application advertisements, you can visit Google’s Ads Preferences page from a browser on your device and make your choices there. These settings are controlled by the device manufacturers, not by MSGN or any member of the MSGN Family.
We may use third-party analytics services on the Application, such as those provided by Google Analytics. These analytics may also be used as part of online advertising campaigns to determine how users interact with the Application after they have been shown an online advertisement. In order to control the collection of data for analytical purposes by Google, you may install the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-On.
California Online Privacy Protection Act Notice Concerning Do Not Track Signals
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers. DNT is a way for users to inform websites and services that they do not want certain information about their webpage visits collected over time and across websites or online services. We are committed to providing you with meaningful choices about the information collected on the Application for third party purposes, and that is why we provide links to the Network Advertising Initiative and the Digital Advertising Alliance opt-out pages. However, we do not recognize or respond to browser-initiated DNT signals, as the Internet industry is currently still working toward defining exactly what DNT means, what it means to comply with DNT, and a common approach to responding to DNT. To learn more about Do Not Track, you can do so here.
CONSENT TO TRANSFER
The Application is operated and provided in the United States. If you are a resident of the European Union or other location outside the United States, please be advised that any information you provide through the Application will be transferred to the United States or other designated locations outside of the United States for certain processing/hosting operations. We have taken commercially reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is appropriately protected and is processed only in accordance with this MAPP. By using the Application, you consent to this transfer and to the use of the personal information as described herein.
OPTING OUT OF USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION FOR MARKETING PURPOSES BY THE MSGN FAMILY

We have implemented commercially reasonable administrative, technical, and physical security measures to protect against the loss, misuse and/or alteration of your information.
