Why do I need to provide my birthday to sell tickets on SeatGeek?

Federal law requires that we collect identifying information from every user who sells on SeatGeek, much like a bank would require upon setting up a new user’s account. Currently, we request your legal name, address, date of birth and phone number. This information is used to verify your identity, and it’s very important that all of the information you provide is accurate and up to date.  Sometimes, our payment processor will request additional documents to assist with this verification.
