The Theatre Within, Inc. (hereinafter "Theatre Within" or "we" or "us" or "our") understands the importance of protecting the personal information of every visitor (hereinafter "you" or "your") of the 30th Annual John Lennon Tribute website (the "Website"), and we have created this Privacy Policy (the "Privacy Policy") to inform you of how we will use your personal information and how you can communicate with us about your preferences.

BY ACCESSING AND/OR USING THE WEBSITE, YOU HAVE AGREED TO 1) abide by the practices described in this Privacy Policy, as may be amended from time to time, and 2) the transfer, processing and maintenance of your personal and sensitive information in the United States of America.

THE PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT: Depending on the type of communication or transaction, the personal information we collect may include, but is not limited to, your name, postal address, ZIP code, telephone number, organization name, e-mail address, credit card, bank information or billing information.

WHERE AND WHEN WE COLLECT PERSONAL INFORMATION: You will be asked to provide your personal information when making donations, registering on certain pages of the Website, requesting communications from Theatre Within, participating in any social networking aspects of the Website and/or in other ways as will be described in this Privacy Policy. In addition, we may also collect other technical information, including, but not limited to, the type of browser you are using (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using (e.g., Windows XP or Mac OS), CPU type (e.g. Pentium), your manner of connecting to the Internet (e.g., connection speed through narrowband or broadband access), your Internet protocol address, other information about your geographic location, or the domain name of your Internet service provider.

INFORMATION SECURITY: Theatre Within has established safeguards to help protect your personal information, but cannot guarantee that your personally identifiable information will never be disclosed in a manner inconsistent with this Privacy Policy (for example, as a result of unauthorized acts by third parties that violate applicable law). To protect your privacy, all on-line transactions are done on a secure server. This means that information entered on the transaction page is encrypted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) before transmission. On secure pages, a "closed" lock symbol is displayed in the bottom part of your browser screen and the website address in the address bar at the top of the browser screen starts with an "https" instead of an "http." 

THEATRE WITHIN MAY SHARE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION: Theatre Within may use your information to: complete your donations; contact you about our on-going work; discuss employment opportunities and ways that you can further support our efforts to support our mission; fulfill your requests for products, programs, and services; communicate with you and respond to your inquiries; conduct research about Theatre Within programs and services; and help offer you other programs or services that may be of interest. We may also share your information with other organizations or programs affiliated with Theatre Within so that we may provide any requested services or information at the local level. For example, if you are requesting a calendar of music events in your area, we may share your e-mail information with other local music promoters so that they can provide you with that information. Your personal information may also be used to provide you access to the various sections of the Website that may be personalized for your needs. Theatre Within may share, rent or exchange donor names and postal addresses with third parties including, but not limited to, any other charity that Theatre Within partners with. Except for the limited circumstances outlined below, Theatre Within will never intentionally share your e-mail addresses, phone numbers or financial information. 

EXCEPTIONS: Theatre Within reserves the right to share your personal information in the following situations:

1. Credit Card Transactions, Electronic Fund Transfers, Payments by Check or Money Order and On-line Transactions. Theatre Within uses third parties to provide credit card, bank, and information processing services (collectively, the "Processing Service Providers"). If you choose to make a donation on-line, by phone, through the mail, or by any other means, we will share your personal information with our Processing Service Providers. While we believe the Processing Service Providers will treat your personal information responsibly, we do not own or control them and cannot guarantee your privacy after your personal information has been transmitted to the Processing Service Providers.

2. Necessity. If we have reason to believe that there has been some inappropriate interference with or use of the Website, any of our communications, or our charitable services, or if we have reason to believe that one of the Website's visitors, users, donors, employees or other related parties may have been injured or may have harmed some other party, we will disclose, without notice to you, personal information as we deem appropriate or if compelled by a legal or regulatory authority.

COOKIES AND PIXELS: A "cookie" is a small piece of data that is sent to your browser from Theatre Within’s web server and is stored on your computer's hard drive. Cookies are used to collect non-identifying information about website visitors, such as web surfing behavior or user preferences for a specific website. Theatre Within uses two different types of cookies: session-based cookies and persistent cookies. Session-based cookies expire at the end of a browser session, so once you close your browser, the cookie simply terminates. Persistent cookies remain on your computer until you remove them. Persistent cookies are used to provide internal Website analytics. You can manually delete all cookies, including persistent cookies, within your browser's privacy settings menu. In addition, Theatre Within may use "pixels," or transparent GIF files, to help manage online advertising. These pixels do not collect identifying information.

WEBSITE LINKS: In order to provide certain services and goods at the Website, we contract with other companies and individuals. These additional services and goods may include "links" to other websites from the Website. Theatre Within’s privacy practices may not be applicable at any third-party sites. Anytime you leave the Website, we have no control regarding what information may be collected about you, nor do we control what third-parties might do with the information. It is important that you review any privacy policies on third-party websites carefully, BEFORE you use any services or programs offered there.

CHANGES TO PRIVACY PRACTICES: From time to time, Theatre Within may revise its privacy practices to address changing technology, security measures or website functionality. We strive to provide you with timely notice of these changes. Please contact us if you have any questions about changes to our privacy practices or the Privacy Policy.

If you use any tools on the Website to disclose information about yourself publicly (for example, in chat rooms or online message boards made available on the Website), other online users may obtain access to any information you provide. The contents of your online communications, as well as other information about you as a user, may be accessed and disclosed in response to legal process (for example, a court order, search warrant or subpoena), in other circumstances in which Theatre Within believes the Website is being used in the commission of a crime, when we have a good faith belief that there is an emergency that poses a threat to the safety of you or another person, or, when necessary, either to protect the rights or property of Theatre Within, its affiliates, or third-party providers, or for us to render the services you have requested. 

Theatre Within may use agents or contractors in order to help operate the Website. If such agents or contractors have access to personally identifiable information, they are required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy by, for example, not using the information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for the Theatre Within Network.
