The Educational Theatre Association cares about your privacy. We want
to tell you in detail about the Internet policies and practices which
we have adopted to protect your privacy so that you can feel confident

only. We will not make any changes that have retroactive effect unless
legally required to do so.
When do we collect personal information?
We only collect personally identifiable data, such as names,
addresses, email addresses, when voluntarily submitted by a visitor.
Visitors may choose to submit personal information, to obtain
information or submit a comment, to register for our discussion forums,
or to place an order. If you are under the age of thirteen we are not
allowed, by the current laws governing personally identifiable
information on the Internet, to solicit or retain any information from
What do we do with the information?
Providing personal information is up to you, our visitor or member.
We will collect personally identifiable information to email you with
updates and news, to respond to your questions or comments, to register
you for certain features, and to send out brochures and other
information on our services and events. We offer visitors and members an
“opt-out” option at any time they wish to cease receiving emails or
other information from us. Visitors and members may “opt-out” by
replying to an email with “UNSUBSCRIBE” in the topic, or you may contact us by email.
We never sell the information that you voluntarily provide us through
the website to any third party. It is used solely by us, our agents, or
business partners to respond to your requests and to better serve you.
We use cookie technology and IP addresses only to obtain non-personal
information from online visitors to provide them with the best possible
personalized online experience. To do this we do keep track of the type
of browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Netscape) and operating system
(e.g., Windows, Macintosh) used by the visitor, and the domain name of
the visitor’s Internet service provider. We also track the total number
of visitors to our site in an aggregate form to allow us to update and
improve our site; personally identifiable information is not extracted
in this process. This helps us keep our site fresh and interesting to
the majority of our visitors. Cookie technology also helps us deliver
content tailored to a visitor’s interests. You may disable cookies or
set your browser to alert you when cookies are being sent. If you do
disable cookies, we may be unable to optimize your visit to our site.
Is credit card transaction information secure?
We use SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) to communicate with your browser
software when you order from us online. SSL is the industry standard
security protocol, which makes it extremely difficult for anyone else to
intercept your credit card transaction and order information that you
send us. Otherwise, the transmission of information to and from us is
not encrypted or secure.
What do you do to safeguard personal information?
We have instituted safeguards to check that our internal procedures
meet our high policy standards. We also use our best efforts to be sure
that third parties who work with us agree to protect personal
information that they must access in order to serve our site and our
