We may make personally identifiable information available to other select organizations, including but not limited to, resident arts companies, visiting performers, arts organizations, affiliated organizations, agents working on our behalf, and companies or organizations with whom we have a contractual or sponsor relationship. We may also provide aggregated data to these and other organizations. We may use the information we collect for institutional research. Although we may make reasonable inquiries to determine that such other organizations maintain website privacy policies comparable to ours, we are not responsible for the enforcement of such policies.

We may disclose personally identifiable information if we believe in good faith that we are required to do so in order to comply with applicable law, a subpoena, or other legal processes. We may also disclose personally identifiable information when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone to protect the safety, property, or other rights of our users or the public. In addition, we may disclose or access personally identifiable information for administrative and other purposes that we believe are necessary or as otherwise provided in this privacy policy.

Secure Ticket Orders and Donations

We do not store credit card information. All online ticket orders and donations are recorded in our Customer Relationship Management (CRM) database system which is maintained by Patron Manager, a division of Inc. We are PCI Compliant (Payment Card Industry Compliant) through a company called Trustwave. This means that the technical and operational standards that businesses follow to secure and protect credit card data are provided by cardholders and transmitted through card processing transactions. 

The PSO collects and uses information about people with whom it communicates.  This personal information must be dealt with properly and securely however it is collected, recorded, and used whether on paper, in a computer, or recorded on other material.  To do this the PSO follows data protection principles outlined in the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). 

The PSO regards the lawful and correct treatment of personal information as very important to the successful and efficient performance of its functions, and to maintain confidence between those with whom it deals. To this end, the PSO fully endorses and adheres to the Principles of Data Protection, as set out in the Federal Trade Commission Act.
