Atlanta, GA – A private company is selling customer information for tickets on some of the city’s most popular travel websites, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported.
Atlanta tickets exchange company, Tickets-To-Go, will use customer data for its service, according to a document seen by the AJC.
Tickets-to-Go claims to sell the information “to the highest bidder.”
The AJC reported the data will be sold to a company called DataVault.
Ticket-to_go was founded by former Boston Red Sox pitcher Ryan Braun, who was traded to the Atlanta Braves in a blockbuster deal in February of 2016.
Braun is now a manager for the Braves.
Braun and Braun’s former teammate, outfielder Brian McCann, are both former Red Sox.
The company says it has been working to improve the quality of its service and improve the ticketing process, but the Atlanta tickets site, which has a 3 million page view a month, remains one of the most popular for buying and selling tickets in the city.
The AJC noted that tickets-togo, which offers online tickets for private parties and concerts, has a long history of problems.
In the past, it has reported ticket issues, including counterfeit tickets.
In March of 2017, the company announced it was closing down its Atlanta offices.
In 2016, it was shut down by a judge after failing to pay a $6 million civil settlement with the city of Atlanta.
