In general, it is LA Opera's policy to protect any personal information we gather, including, but not limited to information collected through www.laopera.org and other company operated pages and sites, and information collected during transactions such as purchasing a ticket, making a donation or requesting information. We will never share, sell, or rent email addresses or phone numbers with any entity without your advance permission or unless ordered to do so by a court of law. We do, on occasion, engage in blind postal mail list exchanges through a third party vendor with other non-profit arts organizations. The information we exchange includes the name and mailing address of those who have purchased tickets from LA Opera. Data regarding donors, including contact information, is not shared without your permission or unless ordered to do so by a court of law and we do not send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations. Use of customer data is authorized for a limited number of mailings and is for marketing purposes only. Lists are brokered through a secure vendor pre-approved by LA Opera; the receiving non-profit does not have access to the data.
What information do we collect from you and how do we use it?
3. We collect financial information volunteered by you in connection with purchases or donations. We may ask you to enter your credit card or account information in our database if you are ordering online. All information you will be asked to enter is protected using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption to prevent it being intercepted by anyone else as it is transferred over the Internet. We collect this information on a transaction-by-transaction basis and will never authorize the release of this information with anyone not directly involved in processing the transaction. This information may be encrypted and stored for logging purposes, and portions of this information will be used to confirm your purchase to you. After you make a purchase, we may send follow up e-mail(s) regarding the transaction. It includes contact information, record of the online purchase and/or donation and the credit card company and may also include the last four digits of the credit card you used to make the transaction.
