Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.

Please read the following carefully. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Valley Art Center.

Gathering and Use of Information

Valleyartcenter.org will never willfully disclose any personally identifiable information about our online audience to any third party without first receiving the user's permission. We do not collect personally identifiable information from our visitors other than what is supplied to us on a voluntary basis.

Visitors to the valleyartcenter.org Web site may voluntarily supply certain personally identifiable information in connection with (i) class registration, events, exhibitions, festivals, volunteering, and contests; (ii) subscription registration for sites or services which require subscription (such as email newsletters); (iii) requests for membership information using a contact form; and (iv) e-commerce transactions. In addition, personally identifiable information is voluntarily provided in connection with certain content submissions, community postings (i.e., forums or bulletin boards), comments and suggestions, or voting.

Valleyartcenter.org may use such information only for conducting the activities stated above, for internal marketing, and for promotional purposes.

Some of our sites contain links to other sites whose information practices may be different than ours. Visitors should consult the other sites' privacy notices as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.

For more information regarding valleyartcenter.org's policies on the handling and use of valleyartcenter.org’s mailing list, please see valleyartcenter.org's Mailing List Policy. The extent of such use is always explained at the time a site visitor provides such information. If the visitor does not want this information collected and used by us for the disclosed internal purposes, the visitor is given an opportunity to 'opt-out.' Our visitors need to recognize, however, that under certain circumstances, if they select to 'opt-out' they may not be eligible for certain activities for which the personally identifiable information is needed. (For example, if a participant elects to 'opt-out' on permitting us to collect and use their personal information, we cannot contact them to notify them of acceptance to competitions or changes to class schedules.)

Valley Art Center requires certain information in order to register participants for classes. For example, we use email addresses as our primary ID for identifying registrant families. We use phone numbers to ensure communication with students. We require emergency contact information for all students.

From time to time, valleyartcenter.org may update this privacy notice. We will notify you about material changes in the way we treat personally identifiable information by placing a notice on our site. We encourage you to periodically check back and review this policy so that you will always know what information we collect, how we use it, and to whom we disclose it. Your continued use of the valleyartcenter.org Web site following the posting of any changes to these terms shall mean that you have accepted those changes.

Should you have other questions or concerns about these privacy policies, please contact Valley Art Center.
