Our Commitment to Privacy:

Your privacy is important to us at Teen Arts Pass (“TAP”). To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used when you access our website, teenartspass.urbangateways.org. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point on our website where personally identifiable information may be requested, via our website footer.

The Information We Collect:

This notice applies to all information collected by or submitted to TAP on our website, at events, or otherwise. On some pages of our website you can make a donation, apply for our Teen Council, or register for the program. TAP might also collect your information at an in-person event. The types of personal information collected at these pages and events may include:

  • Name
  • Mailing address
  • Email address
  • Phone number
  • Demographic information
  • Credit/Debit Card Information (for donations only)
  • Affiliation

These data elements are collected and processed based on your consent, because it is necessary to carry out our obligations to you, and/or in furtherance of our legitimate interests.

In addition, we may also collect data resulting from your activity on our website, such as transaction information, page views and records of return visits to our website. This information may include (i) your internet protocol (IP) address, information provided by “cookies” (a browser feature used to store information about online activities), and additional information regarding your browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks on our website.

The Information Other Websites Collect:

Other websites may also collect information from you when you visit our website through the use of plug-ins on our website. Additionally, TAP is closely affiliated with Urban Gateways, which hosts our website, and navigating our site may take you to pages hosted exclusively by Urban Gateways. Accordingly, you also should review the Urban Gateways privacy policy before providing any information to Urban Gateways, which is available at https://urbangateways.org/privacy-policy/.

If you decide to access or interact with a social network when using our website, the social network may collect certain additional information made available through your social network account. Please consult the privacy policy for any social networks that you use to determine the information these social networks collect and how it is used.

We also may use the Google Analytics web analysis services provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Through this service, Google collects certain information such as your IP address and the pages that you visit on our website and provides it to us. We may use this information to analyze how users use our website, prepare reports on activity on our website, and assist us with expanding and/or enhancing our website. Google may also use the data collected when you access our website to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network and/or share the data with other Google services. Google’s privacy policy may be viewed at http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

The Way We Use Information:

We use the information you provide about yourself only to process your donation, send you materials, and/or register you for the TAP program. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that transaction.

We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.

We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out our registration form, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.

Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online or in-person in ways unrelated to the ones described above without your permission. We will never sell your personal information, and we will never share it with outside parties without your permission.

Information for International Visitors:

We are located in the United States. If you choose to provide us information from other regions of the world, then you acknowledge and agree that: (i) you are transferring your personal information outside of those regions to the United States; and (ii) the laws and regulations of the United States regarding data privacy and collection, use, processing, and storage govern and may differ from those of your country of residence.

EU residents have the legal right to request access to, and rectification or deletion of, any data you provide to us. You also have the right to seek a restriction of our processing of the data, to object to our processing of the data, or to transfer the data to another company. Note, however, that certain information is required for us to provide services to you and restricting or deleting your data may make it impossible for us to provide the requested services. Should you believe that our processing of your personal information is inappropriate, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with a regulatory authority.

Our Commitment to Data Security:

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
