Privacy Policy

bdtickets.com respects the privacy of others and we want you to understand the ways in which we collect and use information about you, whether you visit to browse or purchase via bdtickets.com (the website).

Please review our Privacy Policy carefully. You are agreeing to its terms by visiting or using this website. Notice of all changes that materially affect ways in which your personally identifiable information may be used or shared will be posted in our Privacy Policy. If you continue to use the website after notice of changes have been sent to you or published on our site, you hereby provide your consent to the changed practices.

Please note, this Privacy Policy does not apply to information that our affiliates may collect, or for our websites outside of the jurisdiction noted in our Terms and Conditions or any such other site, as applicable, in order to review those policies and manage your communication preferences. Collecting, Using, and Accessing Collecting Information whether you make a purchase, or a visitor, we are very careful with what we do with your information.

Collection of information is usually grouped into two categories: Personally identifiable, which is information identifiable to a specific user, and non-personally identifiable, which is general demographic information (gender, age, zip code), as well as website-wide usage information (route and destination popularity, pages visited, promotion participation levels) that does not identify any individual. We collect non-personally identifiable information when it is affirmatively provided or through online activity such as cookies and other tracking technologies, which are discussed in greater detail below. We may use non-personally identifiable information for any purpose or disclose it to anyone. Where the two categories of information are combined, the resulting information is treated as personally identifiable information in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy. In many cases, you can view the website without telling us who you are or revealing any personally identifiable information. However, if you wish to purchase a ticket, you will have to provide information required of any traveler. This includes your name, your ID information, and your email address, your mobile number as well as the names of anyone traveling with you. Further, you must provide us with your valid payment information, including credit card numbers and expirations dates (all such foregoing information, collectively, Data).

Since bdtickets.com is only the distributor and reseller of products and services provided by other parties (Suppliers), we are also collecting your Data on behalf of those Suppliers. For example, these Suppliers will need each traveler's name and voter ID number for identification purposes and to verify that each ticket is being used in accordance with that Supplier's terms and conditions. Our collection of and disclosure to our Suppliers of your Data is a required part of your transaction, and you agree by engaging in such transactions on the website to such collection and disclosure. Apart from guest purchases, we will also collect personally identifiable information when you choose to participate in promotions, fill out surveys, complete polls, or send questions or comments to us via email. Please read below for more information on how we use information collected through these means.
