Privacy and Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) Policy
Last revised: September 25, 2017

1. Who We Are and the Purpose of This Privacy & DMCA Policy.

Seattle Theatre Group® is a non-profit arts organization that operates three (3) separate theatres, the Paramount, Moore and Neptune in Seattle, Washington (collectively, “STG,” “Company,” “us” or “we”). STG respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it through our compliance with this Privacy Policy (“Policy”). The Policy applies to only to the websites maintained by STG, which include the following domain: http://www.STGPresents.org/calendar (the “Website”).

This Policy describes the types of information we may collect from you or that you may provide when you visit the Website and provides notice of STG’s enforcement of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”). You should review this Policy and STG’s Terms of Use before you consent to the collection and use of your personal data gathered through the Website in accordance with this Policy. Other practices may be used with respect to information we gather through other means of communication. If you do not agree with our policies and practices, you have the choice of not using our Website.

IF YOU ARE UNDER THE AGE OF 13, STOP NOW. READ PARAGRAPH 7, ENTITLED, “Children under the Age of 13” IMMEDIATELY. Do not provide any information about yourself to us, such as your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address or any avatar, screen name or user name you may use.

All users over the age of 13 should review the entirety of STG’s Policy and the Terms of Use before you consent to the collection and use of your personal data; or post content that may infringe on a work protected by copyright. By using the Website, you are accepting and consenting to STG’s policies and practices as explained in the Policy. STG may change the Policy from time to time. You should check the Policy periodically for updates. If we make material changes to the Policy, we will notify you by e-mail or by posting a conspicuous notice on the Website. Your continued use of this Website after we make changes will indicate your acceptance of those changes.

You may ask questions about our Policy or proactively withdraw your consent for us to collect, use, share or maintain your information at any time by contacting us at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or at 911 Pine Street, Seattle WA 98101. Restricting the use of your personal information before STG uses it in the manner described in the Policy is a better practice than attempting to “delete” or “recover” information that has already been shared.

2. Information We Collect about You and How We Collect It.

Personal information. We collect several types of data from and about users of our Website, including their names, physical and email addresses and other information that can be acquired through a search of public records or an internet search (“Personal Data”). Information that can be used to identify you, such as your financial records, driver’s license number, credit card numbers or the combination of your name, address and social security number, for example, is Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”). We collect Personal Data and PII from third parties and directly from you when you knowingly provide it for various purposes, including registering on the Website, applying to participate in programming or receive support from STG, submitting comments or feedback about STG or applying for employment or volunteer opportunities.

Publically posted information. You also may provide information to be published or displayed (hereinafter, “posted”) in public areas of the Website or on blogs, Facebook, Twitter or other public social network sites that may be linked to the Website (collectively, “User Contributions”). You post and transmit your User Contributions on our Website or through links on our Website (“Linked Sites”) at your own risk. We cannot control the actions of other users of the Website or entities that maintain or use the Linked Sites. Therefore, we cannot, and do not, guarantee that your PII or User Contributions will not be viewed, reproduced, altered or distributed by unauthorized persons when you publically post personal information. Third parties control and establish their own privacy policies for the Linked Sites—this Policy does not apply to Linked Sites. It is your responsibility to read the privacy policies of all Linked Sites routinely to understand how those unrelated third parties collect and treat your PII and User Contributions. Please note that, even when you delete your account, the posts, comments and messages you submit through the Services may still be viewable or available on our servers.

Aggregated information/use of cookies. STG collects “aggregated” information through automatic data collection technologies such as cookies, web beacons and other technologies. Cookies are placed on your hard drive in order to save statistical data about you. “Aggregated” information is statistical and cannot be used to identify an individual without additional information. We use aggregated data to improve your experience and the quality of the services we provide to you, and personalize content and advertisements based on your past use of the Website. Examples of the aggregated data STG collects include your location, your preferred language, communication data and the resources that you access and use on the Website; and information about your computer and internet connection, including your IP address, operating system and browser type. Unless you disable cookies from tracking you, when you next visit the Website, STG may associate you with your previous visits to the Website to deliver a better and more personalized service to you. You may affirmatively decline cookies by proactively using the appropriate feature of your internet browser. Please note that if you choose to remove or reject cookies, you may not be able to access or use all of the services on the Website.

3. How We Use Your PII.

We use your PII to provide services, products and promotional emails about sales, special offers and new programming to you; process orders and donations; determine your eligibility to participate in STG’s educational and community programs, workshops or tours; evaluate your applications for employment or volunteer opportunities; or assess whether STG will provide financial or other support to you or your organization. We also use your PII to comply with the use described when you provided your PII and/or for any other purpose to which you consent.

All PII collected or provided to us is stored for the period of time in which you remain a registered user of the Website, for the period of time during which the storage and processing of your PII is necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or provided. We may also use PII to comply with our legal or contractual third party obligations, or to establish, exercise or defend any legal claims.

We also use your PII to perform our obligations and enforce our rights arising from any contracts entered into between you and us, including for billing, collecting and paying through third party electronic payment processors and/or financial institutions (“ESPs”) to process such financial transactions. By accepting this Policy, you expressly consent to the sharing of your PII necessary to process transactions with ESPs.

4. How, Why and with Whom STG Shares Aggregated Information, Personal Data and PII.

Aggregated information. “Aggregated” information is statistical and cannot be used to identify an individual without additional information. We may disclose aggregated information about our users and information that does not identify any individual, without restriction. We may use the automatically collected data to estimate our audience size and usage patterns; store information about your preferences, allowing us to customize our Website according to your individual interests; speed up your searches; and recognize you when you return to our Website. STG uses third-party-placed tracking pixels and cookies from various advertising delivery partners such as Ad Roll, Google and Ticketmaster. We do not share any of your Personal Data or PII with these platform vendors. In the future, we may collaborate with other companies to provide interest-based advertising. STG will provide you with an opportunity to opt-out if we post advertisements developed in collaboration with our affiliated entities.

If you would like more information about sharing aggregated information across websites and your choices to limit third-party service providers’ access to your use of other websites, please visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp. Although our Website currently does not have a mechanism to recognize the various web browser Do Not Track signals, we offer our users choices to manage their preferences proactively, as set forth in section, Rights Concerning Personal Data, PII and Account Details. To learn more about browser tracking signals and Do Not Track, please visit http://www.allaboutdnt.org/.

Personal Data. We may disclose Personal Data that we collect or you provide for any purpose disclosed by us to you when you provide the information and consent to STG using it for the stated purpose. We may disclose aggregated information or Personal Data to, but not limited to the following entities:

• Contractors, service providers and other non-profit organizations we use to support our business; and the promoters and artists that perform at STG (“Third Parties”). STG requires the Third Parties to keep your Personal Data confidential and use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to them. Promoters and artists receive only aggregated and demographic data and the names and email addresses of ticket purchasers of that specific promoter’s or artist’s performance.
• A buyer or other successor in the event of the merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution or other sale or transfer of some or all of STG’s assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation or similar proceeding, in which Personal Data held by STG about our Website users is among the assets transferred.

PII. We may also disclose your PII:

• To comply with any court order, law or legal process, including to respond to any government or regulatory request;
• Enforce or apply our Terms of Use and other agreements, including for billing, payment and collection purposes; or
• To protect the rights, property, or safety of STG, our customers or others if we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate.

5. International Transfers of Personal Data.

To the extent that STG enters into a contractual relationship with a Third Party located outside the United States, we may transfer your Personal Data to the country in which the Third Party operates or resides. For example, Third Parties such as Broadway Across Canada may receive PII from STG based on their existing contractual relationship and shared audience base with STG’s affiliated arts organization, Broadway Across America.

6. California Privacy Rights.

California law entitles residents to ask us for a notice describing what categories of Personal Information we share with third parties or with affiliates of STG. STG does not provide any PII to third parties for their own direct marketing purposes. If you want to request a notice or have any questions about our privacy practices, please contact us at: This email address is being protected from spambots.
