Arts Council Privacy Policy

The Arts Council board approved the following privacy policy at its July 18, 2018 board meeting:

 

“The Northeast Louisiana Arts Council (NLAC) respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it.  The nelaarts.org website site may collect, store, and use personal information submitted via the site.

  1. Collection of Information

Certain applications on the NLAC website may require users to register or to provide personal information in order to become members of the Council.  Such personal information is not sold to third parties.  Members also have the option of choosing not to be listed in our publications.  That option is clearly stated on the membership application.

  1. Mailing Lists

If you provide your email or mailing address, NLAC may periodically contact you with special offers, updated information, and new services.  Any emails sent to you by NLAC offer you the option to be removed from the email mailing list.

Selected applications on our website allow visitors to subscribe to our newsletter by providing their names and addresses to NLAC.  If you provide NLAC with your mailing address or telephone number, NLAC in addition to providing you with the newsletter, may also use this information to alert you to updated information, new services or events.  If you wish to be removed from the email mailing list, you may do so by contacting NLAC or by using the option provided in the email.

  1. Information to third parties

NLAC will never sell your information to other companies.  Occasionally, other Region 8 non-profit arts organizations may request use of our mailing list to promote a specific one-time event, provide information or promote their upcoming season.  You may choose to opt out of the list for these purposes, and to do so, please contact NLAC directly.

  1. Financial information

Our online store is hosted by Square.  Our on-line ticket sales are through BonTempTix.  Processing of online payments are through either Square or PayPal. These services automatically collect order information but may only use this information in the aggregate. Information about these services privacy policies can be found at https://squareup.com/help/us/en/article/3796-privacy-and-security and https://bontempstix.com/about/privacy and https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full

  1. Information Security

The Northeast Louisiana Arts Council is committed to maintaining the security of personal information. We employ reasonable security measures to secure and protect the information we receive. Please remember, though, that no method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure.

  1. Links

Our site may include links to other websites.  We do not control the privacy policies of the destination sites.  Once you leave our servers (you can check where you are by checking the URL in the location bar on your browser), use of any information you provide is governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the site you are visiting.  That policy may differ from ours.  If you can’t find the privacy policy of any of these sites via a link from the site’s homepage, you should contact the manager of that site for more information.  NLAC is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of websites other than nelaarts.com.

  1. Children

We do not solicit personal information from children.  Sites specifically geared toward children will not request any personal or contact information.

  1. Changes to this Privacy Policy

The Northeast Louisiana Arts Council has the discretion to modify or amend this privacy policy at any time, without notice.  We encourage Users to read this policy each time you use the website to stay up-to-date and informed about how we are helping to protect the personal information collected on our website.  You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to review this privacy policy periodically and become aware of modifications.

  1. Your Acceptance of these Terms

By using this site, you signify your acceptance of this policy.  If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use our site.  Your continued use of the site following the posting of changes to this policy will be deemed your acceptance of those changes.

  1. Contact Us / How to update your personal information

You can help NLAC maintain the accuracy of your personal information by notifying us when you change your address, title, phone number, or email address.  Contact us via the information on the nelaarts.org contacts page if you wish to update your information or if you no longer wish to receive communications from NLAC or selected arts organizations in the community. “
