Urban Gateways Privacy Policy

Effective May 19, 2009

Our Commitment To Privacy:

Your privacy is important to us. 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. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.

The Information We Collect:

This notice applies to all information collected by or submitted to Urban Gateways on our website, at events, or otherwise. On some web pages you can make a donation, sign up for an email newsletter, post a comment, register for events, and purchase tickets. Urban Gateways might also collect your information at an in-person event such as our annual Gala or a New Arts Forum fundraiser. The types of personal information collected at these pages and events may include:

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

The Way We Use Information:

We use the information you provide about yourself only to process your donation, send you materials, register you for an event, and/or post your comment. 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.

You can register with our website if you would like to receive our catalog as well as updates on our new programs, events, and services. Information you submit on our website will not be used for this purpose unless you fill out the registration form.

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.

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.

Our Commitment To Children’s Privacy:

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.

How You Can Access Or Correct Your Information:

You can access all your personally identifiable information that we collect online and maintain by contacting our organization to set up a records request. We use this procedure to better safeguard your information.

You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by sending us a request that credibly shows error.

To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
