  at which all tickets have been bought and sold by such licensee; and (b)
  the names and addresses of the person, firm  or  corporation  from  whom

  protections  set forth in subdivision five of section eighty-nine of the
  public officers law. These records shall be retained for a period of not
  less than ten years.

  auction of tickets between independent parties  by  any  and  all  means
  shall report to the department of state the total number of, and average
  resale  or  average  final  resale auction price of, all tickets to each
  ticketed event, provided, however, that repeat performances of a  single
  event,  and  multiple  events that are part of a season-long performance
  shall be treated as a single event for the  purposes  of  the  reporting
  requirement of this subdivision. The information required to be reported
  by  this  section shall be considered proprietary in nature and shall be
  governed by the protections set forth in  subdivision  five  of  section
  eighty-nine  of  the  public officers law, and shall be used exclusively
  for analytical purposes by the department of state.
