Privacy Policy

At Arts Iowa, we respect your right to privacy and your requirements to control personal information. “Personal information” includes, but is not limited to, name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and credit card information. Arts Iowa does not sell, rent, swap or otherwise disclose any personal information. The intent of this Privacy Statement is to inform users how our site collects, stores and uses personal information.


No software or hardware techniques are employed to capture a visitor’s e-mail address without their knowledge. Certain applications on the Arts Iowa website may require users to register or to provide personal information in order to make a commerce transaction, to enter a contest, or to subscribe to a newsletter. Such personal information is not shared or sold to third parties. To better enable us to service our patrons, the web site may be used as a survey tool to request demographic information. Entry of such information is optional and if you choose not to enter such information, you can successfully use these applications. If we request demographic information, we will not share your personal information as an individual with any other entity. If we do share demographic information with third parties, we will give them aggregate information only.


If you provide your e-mail address, Arts Iowa may contact you periodically with special offers, updated information and new services. Any e-mails sent to you by Arts Iowa offer you the option to be removed from the e-mail mailing list.

Selected applications on our web site allow visitors to subscribe to our print and e-mail newsletter by providing their names and addresses to Arts Iowa. If you provide Arts Iowa with your e-mail, mailing address or telephone number, Arts Iowa may also use this information to alert you to updated information and new services. If you wish to be removed from these mailing lists, you may unsubscribe at any time or do so by contacting Arts Iowa directly.

Arts Iowa may provide your name and address to other nonprofit organizations for mutually beneficial programs. Arts Iowa does not rent, sell or exchange our mailing list with any for-profit entities. You can request at any time that we do not share your name and address with such third parties. Arts Iowa does not monitor or control the privacy policies of third parties.


Arts Iowa may occasionally present a special contest or promotion on its website that is sponsored by another company. 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.


Arts Iowa stores all user information in secure databases protected via a variety of access controls. Access controls include password protection, electronic firewalls and data encryption. SSL encryption is used to protect all personal and financial information, and credit card information is not stored on a Web-enabled server. This data is accessed only for purposes specified in this privacy policy.


Arts Iowa will protect any personal financial information that you share with us. If you make a purchase online, we will use your credit card number only to process your payment and will not use it for marketing purposes. For reasons of security, credit card information is not stored on our web server. We will retain order information for our records, but this information is never shared with third parties.


Our site includes links to other websites whose privacy policies we don’t control. Once you leave our servers (you can check where you are by checking the URL in the location bar on your browser), use of any information you provide is governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the site you are visiting. That policy may differ from ours. If you can’t find the privacy policy of any of these sites via a link from the site’s homepage, you should contact the site directly for more information. Arts Iowa is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.


Certain applications in the Arts Iowa website invoke a standard feature found in browser software, called a “cookie.” We use cookies only to track the progress of e-commerce transactions and to allow site users to move from one page to the next without having to re-enter personal order information. We do not use cookies to track user sessions, and we do not use or share information transferred through cookies with third parties for marketing or other purposes.


We do not solicit personal information from children. Sites specifically geared toward children will not request any personal or contact information.


You can maintain the accuracy of your personal information by notifying us when you change your address, title, phone number, or e-mail address. If at any time you wish to update your information or stop receiving communication from Arts Iowa, our partners, or selected third parties, contact Arts Iowa by e-mail or by postal mail at:

Arts Iowa
119 Third Avenue SE
Cedar Rapids, IA 52401
