at all times displayed a price list showing the established price
charged by the operator of the place of entertainment for which a ticket
is being sold by such licensee, together with the price being charged by

visiting such place may readily see the same. The licensee shall also on
request furnish each purchaser of a ticket with a receipt showing the
same information. Further, if the licensee conducts business through the
use of the internet, the same price list, or hyperlink to the same,
shall be conspicuously displayed on the internet page on which tickets
are accessed. In addition the licensee shall publish in a conspicuous
place, or hyperlink to on the internet a statement clearly detailing the
required guarantees required by section 25.07 of this article.

notice on the website that the website is for the secondary sale of a
ticket, that the price of such ticket offered for sale may exceed the
established price and shall also state the refund policy of the platform
in connection with the cancellation or postponement of an event. An
online resale marketplace shall require that the user confirm having
read such notice before completing any transaction. For the purposes of
this section, an "online resale marketplace" means any operator or
manager of a website or other electronic service that resells tickets or
serves as a platform to facilitate resale, or resale by way of a
competitive bidding process.
