Cookies and web beacons

When you first use our Site and Services, StubHub may send a cookie to your computer that identifies you as a unique user. We may use session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to store your preferences, identify you and maintain your signed-in status and provide you with a more personal and interactive experience. You can set your browser to refuse cookies or delete persistent cookies by following your browser's help instructions. If you choose to disable cookies, some of our services may not work properly and you may not be able to buy and sell tickets. We may also use web beacons, which are typically small graphic objects or pixels that are embedded in a web page. These web beacons allow us or our provider(s) to check that a user has viewed a web page. For more information about how we or our providers use cookies and web beacons, see our policy on Cookies, Web Beacons and Your Privacy.

Accessing and changing personal information

You can access and change your account information in My Account. There, you can change your address, telephone number, email address, password, payment card information and privacy and communications preferences.

We may communicate with you at various times, with administrative emails, phone calls or SMS messages, about transactions and service announcements, customer service responses and promotional emails like special offers, newsletters and updates. You can choose to stop receiving promotional emails from us at any time simply by changing your preferences, unsubscribing on the website or using an email's unsubscribe function. You may not opt out of receiving administrative messages or customer service responses. However, you can use the unsubscribe feature in SMS messages to stop receiving such messages, even if administrative. If you have agreed to receive marketing communications through checkout with our partners, you must change your communication preferences with them directly.

If you choose to use our referral services, we ask you for your friend's name and email address. We will automatically send your friend a copy of the email. StubHub or our service providers store this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email. Your friend may contact us at to request that we remove this information from our database.


Your information is stored on our servers located in the United States. We treat data as an asset that must be protected and use tools (encryption, passwords, physical security, etc.) to protect your personal information against unauthorised access and disclosure. However, as you probably know, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the site. Therefore, although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.

Third parties

Except as otherwise expressly included in this Privacy Policy, this document addresses only the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. If you disclose your information to others, whether they are buyers or sellers on our sites or other sites throughout the internet (including the ones we link to), different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them. StubHub does not control the privacy policies of third parties, and you are subject to the privacy policies of those third parties where applicable. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.


We may amend this Privacy Policy at any time by posting the amended terms on this site. All amended terms automatically take effect 30 days after they are initially posted.
