Your privacy is very important to us.
Georgia Ensemble Theatre Company web site ("Visitors"), what we do with the information we collect,
and the choices Visitors have concerning the collection and use of such information.
How Personal Information Georgia Ensemble Theatre Company Collects Is Used
Georgia Ensemble Theatre Company collects information in different ways from Visitors who access various parts of the
Georgia Ensemble Theatre Company web site.
We use this information primarily to provide a customized experience as you browse the site and, generally,
do not share this information with third parties.
However, we may disclose personal information collected if we have received your permission beforehand
or in very special circumstances, such as when we believe that such disclosure is required by
law or other special cases described below.
Visitors are asked to provide certain personal information when they sign up to receive or provide information on the web site,
or to make a purchase, including name, address, telephone number, billing information (such as a credit card number),
and the type of personal computer being used to access the site.
Personal information collected from Visitors is used to manage each Visitors account (such as for future contact and billing purposes).
This information is not shared with third parties, unless specifically stated otherwise or in special circumstances.
However, in instances where Georgia Ensemble Theatre Company and a partner jointly engage in a promotion,
Georgia Ensemble Theatre Company may provide the partner certain personal information, such as the name, address, and username
of persons who have registered as a result of the joint promotion for the sole purpose of allowing us and the partner
to assess the results of the promotion.
In this instance, personal information may not be used by the partner for any other purpose.
Georgia Ensemble Theatre Company may also generate nonidentifying and aggregate profiles from personal information
Visitors provide during registration (such as the total number, but not the names, of Visitors).
As explained in more detail below, we may use this aggregated and nonidentifying information to sell advertisements that appear on the site.
Partners and Sponsors
Some Georgia Ensemble Theatre Company products and services are offered to Visitors in conjunction with a non-affiliated partner.
For example, we may outsource the provision of a news ticker and related news information (accessible on the site )
to a third-party vendor. To provide our Visitors these types of additional products and services,
our partner may need to collect and maintain personal information.
In these instances, you will be notified before any such data is collected or transferred and may decide not to
use that particular service or feature. Additionally, Georgia Ensemble Theatre Company Visitors may access cobranded
pages that are cosponsored by nonaffiliated partners.
Georgia Ensemble Theatre Company will share nonidentifying and aggregate information (except as described above),
but not personal information, with such partners in order to administer the cobranded content, products, or services offered.
Visitors can purchase products and services or register to receive materials, such as new product and service updates on the site.
In many cases, you may be asked to provide contact information, such as your name, address, email address, phone number,
and credit/debit card information.
If you complete an order for someone else, such as an online gift order sent directly to a recipient,
you may be asked to provide information about the recipient, such as the recipient's name, address, and phone number.
Georgia Ensemble Theatre Company has no control over the third parties' use of any personal information
you provide when placing such an order. Please exercise care when doing so.
If you order products directly from the Georgia Ensemble Theatre Company Store, we will use the personal information you
provide only to process that order.
We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.
Georgia Ensemble Theatre Company may display online advertisements or sponsored content.
We share aggregated and nonidentifying information about our Visitors and Members collected through the registration process
as well as through online surveys and promotions with these advertisers.
Additionally, in some instances, we use this aggregated and nonidentifying information to deliver tailored advertisements.
For instance, an advertiser tells us the audience they want to reach
(for example, males between 25 and 35 years of age with annual income above $50,000) and provides us an advertisement tailored to the audience.
Based upon the aggregated and nonidentifying information we have collected, we may then display the advertisement to the intended audience.
Georgia Ensemble Theatre Company does not share personal information about its Visitors or Members with these advertisers.
Email Replies and Information
When Visitors send email inquiries to Georgia Ensemble Theatre Company, the return email address is used to answer the email inquiry we receive.
Georgia Ensemble Theatre Company does not use the return email address for any other purpose and does not share the return
email address with any third party.
We may periodically conduct both business and individual customer surveys.
We encourage our visitors and customers to participate in these surveys because they provide us with important
information that helps us to improve the types of services we offer and how we provide them to you.
Your personal information and responses will remain strictly confidential, even if the survey is conducted by a third party.
Participation in customer surveys is voluntary.
The information we receive from individuals responding to our Customer Surveys is combined (or aggregated)
with the responses of other Georgia Ensemble Theatre Company customers to create broader,
generic responses to the survey questions (such as gender, age, residence, hobbies, education, employment,
industry sector, or other demographic information).
The aggregated information is then used to improve the quality of our services to you, and to develop new services and products.
This aggregated, non-personally identifying information may be shared with third parties.
It is Georgia Ensemble Theatre Company policy not to use or share the personal information about its Visitors in ways unrelated
to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
However, Georgia Ensemble Theatre Company may disclose personal information about Visitors,
or information regarding your use of the Web site and our Services, for any reason if, in our sole discretion,
we believe that it is reasonable to do so, including: to satisfy laws, such as the Electronic Communications Privacy Act,
regulations, or governmental or legal requests for such information;
to disclose information that is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone
who may be violating our Acceptable Use Policy or other user policies; to operate the Services properly;
or to protect Georgia Ensemble Theatre Company and our Visitors.
