Privacy Policy


This notice applies to all information collected by or submitted to the University of Virginia Arts Box Office through its website, via phone, by mail, or in person, including, but not limited to, information related to your past usage of the Arts Box Office products and services. The University reserves the right to amend this notice at any time without notice.

Because the Arts Box Office is part of the University of Virginia, the box office system and patron service software we use is a shared University resource. The system is shared by four primary University parties: Department of Drama, Heritage Theatre Festival, McIntire Department of Music, and the Virginia Film Festival. Each of these has limited access to accounts originating at the others. Various other groups may also elect to sell tickets through the Arts Box Office. We will not provide any personal information to any organization not serviced by the Arts Box Office. We are committed to maintaining the highest level of privacy practical.
