Western Arts Alliance (WAA) values individual privacy and we want to give our constituents the opportunity to know what information we collect.
Data We Collect and How We Use It
WAA has various forms on our website that may ask for personally identifiable information. This information includes, but is not limited to, your name, professional title, place of employment, address, e-mail address, telephone number, IP address, and credit card information.
We may use this information to respond to an inquiry or request, to help improve our website and our services, to customize your experience at our website, or to send updates or notices about our organization and the products we offer that we think may be of interest to you. We may also combine this information with other generally or publicly available information to help us identify visitors’ preferences or interests. We may provide information that identifies you to companies that assist us in these activities, such as helping us fulfill your request for a product, service or information.
Here are other ways in which we might use data that you provide to us:
- The membership directory
- The electronic presenter list subscription
- The electronic conference attendee list
- With the members’ express approval, WAA may occasionally provide, sell, or rent limited data to third parties, including companies that offer products and services for sale to WAA’s members.
How we transfer and store your information
Information you provide to us is always transferred and stored securely, and only authorized Western Arts Alliance staff, board, panel members, or other contractors have access to information in our database unless expressly stated at the point of data collection.
WAA uses third-party software packages to collect and store information. This software includes form and payment processing programs, email marketing tools, and database vendors. Although we take measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we can’t assure you that personally identifiable information we collect will never be disclosed accidentally in the future.
WAA reserves the right to disclose information where required by law or to comply with valid legal process (such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order), to protect WAA’s rights or property, including without limitation in the event of a transfer of control of WAA or substantially all of its assets, or during emergencies when safety is at risk.
