Privacy Policy

CulturalDC has adopted this Privacy Policy to inform users of the culturaldc.org Internet site how the site collects, stores and uses personal information submitted via the site.

1. Collection of Information
Certain applications on the CulturalDC website may require users to register or to provide personal information in order to make a commercial transaction, or to subscribe to a newsletter or email mailing list. Such personal information is not shared or sold to third parties. To better understand the needs of our website users, we may also request demographic information. Entry of such information is optional and if you choose not to enter such information, you can successfully use these applications. If we request demographic information, we will not share information about you as an individual with any other entity. If we do share demographic information with third parties, we will give them aggregate information only.

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

Selected applications on our web site allow visitors to request information by providing their names and addresses to CulturalDC. If you provide CulturalDC with your mailing address or telephone number, CulturalDC, in addition to providing you with the information requested, may also use this information to alert you to new or updated information and new services. If you wish to be removed from the mailing list, you may do so by contacting CulturalDC directly. (See the ‘Contact’ section).

3. Information to third parties
CulturalDC may occasionally present a special contest or promotion on culturaldc.org that is sponsored by another company. To qualify for entry, we may ask you to provide personal information. If we plan to share that information with the sponsor(s), we will provide a statement to that effect.

Periodically, we make our customer postal address available to other local reputable arts organizations and/or non-profit organizations whose products or services we think you might find interesting. If you do not want us to share your mailing address with other companies or organizations, please let us know by calling (202) 315-1305.

4. Financial information
CulturalDC will protect any personal financial information that you share with us. If you make a purchase or a donation on our website, we will use your credit card number only to process your payment and will not use it for marketing purposes. We will retain order information for our records, but this information is never shared with third parties.

When clicking on the “Buy Tickets” link on any of our pages, you will be re-directed to an external company’s website. These companies have been chosen by CulturalDC or presenting organizations to provide our customers with online ticket sales. Any information provided by our patrons while at a third party web site adheres to the privacy policy of that organization.

5. Links
Our site 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. The policy may differ from ours. If you cannot 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. CulturalDC is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of the web sites other than culturaldc.org or sourcefestival.org.

6. Contact Us/How to update your personal information
You can help CulturalDC 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 culturaldc.org contact page if you wish to update your information or if you no longer wish to receive communications from CulturalDC or our partners. You can also write to us at info[at]culturaldc.org.

Please include both your old and new contact information so that we can make the appropriate corrections. CulturalDC would like to receive your comments or questions about this privacy policy. Please address comments or questions regarding CulturalDC’s privacy practices to us at the address listed above. CulturalDC may occasionally update this policy. Notice of revisions will be posted here.
