- INFORMATION COLLECTED
- INFORMATION YOU GIVE US. Certain applications on the ASSOCIATION websites and mobile application may require users to register or to provide personal information in order to make a purchase, or to be included on our electronic mailing lists. To better understand the needs of our website and mobile application users, we may also request information on users from time to time on a voluntary basis. Such information gathered and provided to any third party does not contain any information that identifies the user, but contains generalized, aggregate data or so called "demographic information." Entry of such information is optional and if you choose not to enter such information, you can successfully use these applications. If you choose to share demographic information with third parties, we will only provide aggregate data.
If you or your child participates in one of our learning programs, whether in person or online, we may capture certain video or photographs as part of the program and in promotional materials for future programs. We will always obtain your permission prior to doing so.
- USE OF INFORMATION COLLECTED
In order to purchase tickets or merchandise, exchange tickets or access subscriber services, join our Email Clubs, participate in contests or surveys, or participate in any of our learning programs, whether online or in person, you must complete a registration form. Our website's registration form requires you to provide and verify basic contact information (such as your name and email address). This information is used to contact you about services in which you have expressed interest. It is optional for you to provide additional demographic information (such as income level and gender), but it is encouraged so we may provide a more personalized and meaningful experience on our site.
Other uses of the personal information you provide to us may include:
- MARKETING ELECTRONIC MAIL. If you have opted-into receiving electronic mail communication from the ASSOCIATION, we may use your personal information to email you regarding special offers from the ASSOCIATION, updated information about the ASSOCIATION or the ASSOCIATION websites, or ways in which we can improve your experience at that site. All such emails sent to you by the ASSOCIATION will allow you to opt-out of future electronic communications from the Association.
- OTHER CONTACTS. If you provide your email address or have opted-in to receiving electronic mail communications, the ASSOCIATION may also use your personal information to contact you by mail, by email, or by telephone regarding special offers from the ASSOCIATION, updated information about the ASSOCIATION or the ASSOCIATION websites, and new services offered by the ASSOCIATION. If you wish to be removed from this contact list, you may do so by contacting the ASSOCIATION directly. (See the ‘Contact Us’ section below).

- as required by regulatory authorities or law enforcement officials who have jurisdiction over the ASSOCIATION and its affiliates or as otherwise required by any applicable law; and
- to the extent reasonably necessary to prevent fraud and unauthorized transactions.
With your permission, we may include images or recordings of you and your child in our marketing and promotional materials if you participate in our learning programs, whether online or in person.
We release account and other personal information when required and in compliance with any law, or protect the rights, property, or safety of the ASSOCIATION, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

To qualify for entry, we may ask you to provide personal information. If we plan to share that information with the sponsor(s), we will provide a statement to that effect.
We restrict access to your personal information to those employees who need to know that information to provide you services. Employees are permitted to disclose personal information only to such other employees who need to have access to such information to deliver our services. Employees of the ASSOCIATION are prohibited, either during or after termination of their employment, from disclosing personal information to any person or entity outside of the ASSOCIATION, including family members, except under the circumstances described above. When we no longer need your personal information, we will delete or destroy the information in accordance with our data destruction policies and applicable data protection laws.
- CHILDREN’S ONLINE PRIVACY
