This is the New Jersey Theatre Alliance Internet Privacy Statement.
This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices for www.njtheatrealliance.org.
Information Collection and Use
The New Jersey Theatre Alliance is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways other than those outlined in this statement. The New Jersey Theatre Alliance collects information from our users at several different points on our Web site.
It is optional for a user to complete a registration form. During registration a user is required to give contact information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact the user about the services on our site for which they have expressed interest. It is optional for the user to provide demographic information (such as income level and gender), but encouraged so we can provide a more personalized experience on our site.
Publicly available information
Some account information may be made available to other users of this site who are not New Jersey Theatre Alliance staff. In these cases it is made as clear as possible what information will be made publicly available. For example, we make contact information among member theatre staff users publicly available to other member theatre staff users. If you are unclear about what information is shared with whom, feel free to contact the Alliance.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once and will be remembered the next time the user returns, thereby saving time while on our site. If users reject the cookie, they may still use our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site.
We may use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track users' movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We will share aggregate demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. We use an outside credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes. We partner with other parties to provide specific services such as a secured site for financial transactions. When the user signs up for these services, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
This Web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that the New Jersey Theatre Alliance is not responsible for the privacy practices of such sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by the New Jersey Theatre Alliance Web site.
If a user wishes to subscribe to our email technology or newsletters, we ask for contact information such as name and email address.
Surveys & Contests
From time to time our site requests information from users via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
This Web site takes every precaution to protect our users' information. This includes encrypting passwords and other sensitive information. However, we advise users of this site to follow secure web practices, such as never sharing your password with anyone, even Alliance staff. If you have any questions about the security at our Web site, you can use our Contact form.
Supplementation of Information
In order for this Web site to enhance its ability to tailor the site to an individual's preference, we might combine information about the purchasing habits of users with similar information from other partners, to create a personalized user profile.
Site and Service Updates
We also send the user site and service announcement updates. Members are not able to unsubscribe from service announcements, which contain important information about the service. We communicate with the user to provide requested services and account information via email or phone.
Correction/Updating Personal Information
If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as a zip code), or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user's personal data from our records. This can usually be done on the "my account" page. If you are having difficulty in updating your information, contact the Alliance.
Our users are given the opportunity to "opt-out" of having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for the information. For example, our informational email messages have an "opt-out" mechanism so users who register can change their mind and be removed form receiving future informational messages.
Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional materials from our partners may opt-out of receiving these communications by following the "unsubscribe" instructions in the email message. Users of our site are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether or not they should proceed with services that require an outside party.
Data sharing with third parties
In a few places on this site, we may provide the option for a user to integrate his or her account with their account on a third party service and to share information between the two. In these instances this feature will be optional and it will be made clear what information will be shared.
Users who are granted the proper permissions may create their own content and comments on this site. When a user creates such content, they implicitly agree to allow the Alliance to share the identity of the poster along with the content.
