Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

The Boston Landmarks Orchestra’s Privacy Policy is designed to help you understand how we collect and use any personal information you decide to share, and help you make informed decisions when communicating with the Boston Landmarks Orchestra. By communicating with the Boston Landmarks Orchestra, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy. Please be advised that the practices described by this Privacy Policy apply only to information gathered online at our website or via our mobile platforms. It does not apply to information you submit to us offline, or to websites maintained by other companies or organizations to which we may link.

Privacy of Donors
In a manner consistent with the following Privacy Policy, we respect the privacy of our donors. We make every effort to disclose donor information only as specifically instructed by the donor and in a manner consistent with his or her wishes. The Boston Landmarks Orchestra will not sell, or trade a donor’s personal information with anyone else, nor will we send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations. The limited circumstances in which we would share your information are described below. If you have a question about donor privacy, please contact us at info@landmarksorchestra.org.

The Information We Collect
When you register with the Boston Landmarks Orchestra via this website, text message, other mobile platforms, or when you make contributions through our site or use other functions or features on the site, you provide us with certain personal information, such as your name, your email address, your telephone number, your address, your gender and any other personal or preference information.

The Boston Landmarks Orchestra may also collect information about you from other online sources, such as newspapers, blogs, and instant messaging services in the form of a “cookie,” which is a tiny text file that is stored in your computer but does not itself contain any personal information. We use cookies to provide you with more useful information and a more personalized experience.

By communicating with the Boston Landmarks Orchestra, you are consenting to have your personal data transferred to and processed in the United States.

Use of Information Obtained by the Boston Landmarks Orchestra
When you make a donation or register with the Boston Landmarks Orchestra, we will add your name and contact information to our mailing list. You can choose at any time to opt out of our mailing list by contacting us at info@landmarksorchestra.org. The Boston Landmarks Orchestra may send you announcements from time to time through phone, email, or text message. In regards to broadcast text messages, you may opt-out of these communications. If you do not wish to receive them, you may text “STOP” to the received message.

We may use information about you that we collect from other online sources in the form of cookies. Where such information is used, we generally allow you to specify, in your browser’s privacy settings, that you do not want this to be done or to take other actions that limit the connection of this information.

Sharing Your Information with Third Parties
We do not provide contact information to third party marketers without your permission. We share your information with third parties only in limited circumstances where we believe such sharing is 1) reasonably necessary to offer a service, 2) legally required, or 3) permitted by you.

For example:

  • We may use third parties to facilitate our business, such as to host the service at a co-location facility for servers, to send out email updates about the Boston Landmarks Orchestra, to remove repetitive information from our user lists, to process payments for products or services, or to provide search results or links (including sponsored links). In connection with these offerings and business operations, our service providers may have access to your personal information for use for a limited time in connection with these business activities. Where we use third parties for the processing of any personal information, we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections limiting the use of that information to the Boston Landmarks Orchestra-specified purposes.
  • In conjunction with the use of the Boston Landmarks Orchestra Platform, third parties who agree to abide by the Boston Landmarks Orchestra Platform Terms of Service, including restrictions on access, storage and use of such data, may have limited access to your personal information. Please report any suspected misuse of information through the Boston Landmarks Orchestra platform here and we will investigate any such claim and take appropriate action against the third party.
  • We may be required to disclose user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We do not reveal information until we have a good faith belief that an information request by law enforcement or private litigants meets applicable legal standards. Additionally, we may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to comply with law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the Boston Landmarks Orchestra’s service or using the Boston Landmarks Orchestra’s name, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies.
  • We let you choose to share information with marketers or electronic commerce providers through sponsored groups or other on-site offers.
  • If the ownership of all or substantially all of the Boston Landmarks Orchestra’s business, or individual business units owned by the Boston Landmarks Orchestra, were to change, your user information may be transferred to the new owner so the service can continue operations. In any such transfer of information, your user information would remain subject to the promises made in the pre-existing Privacy Policy, i.e., the latest policy in effect before the change occurred.

Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we strive to maintain physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards to secure the information we collect online. This includes the use of Authorize.net for processing financial donations securely.

Because email and instant messaging are not recognized as secure communications, we request that you not send private information to us by email or instant messaging services. If you have any questions about the security of the Boston Landmarks Orchestra’s Web Site, please contact us at info@landmarksorchestra.org.

Automatically Collected Information
When you interact with the website, our servers collect log data that may include our IP address, your company name and/or internet provider, the type of browser and operating system, the time of day visited, the pages viewed, and search requests. Will not collect personally identifiable information from you other than what you supply to us on a voluntary basis.

Terms of Use, Notices and Revisions

If we make changes, we will post them and will indicate at the top of this page the policy’s effective date. We therefore encourage you to refer to this policy on an ongoing basis so that you understand our current Privacy Policy. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Policy applies to all information that we have about you and your account.
