We may use information about you for purposes described in this Privacy Policy or disclosed to you on the Site. For example, we may use information about you:

Sharing or Disclosure of Your Personal Information

Unless otherwise agreed, we will not sell or disclose to third parties any individually identifying information, such as names, postal and e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, and other personal information which users voluntarily provide to us, except as follows:
• We use outside service providers and third-party analytics tools to facilitate the Site and overall operation, and to perform functions on our behalf, such as monitoring visitors to our Site, sending postal mail and email, analyzing data, monitoring visitor comments through automated spam detection services, and providing customer service. These third parties may have access to your personal information as needed to perform their functions, but they may not use it for any other purpose.
• An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a “hash”) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it.
• To the extent necessary to comply with applicable laws or valid legal processes, such as in response to subpoenas or court orders.
• To protect the rights and intellectual property of Dance Resource Center.
• To investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, violations of our policies, or as otherwise required by law.

Access, Correction & Deletion

If your personally identifiable information changes, or if you no longer wish us to possess your information, you may, subject to applicable laws, request correction, updating, or deletion of your information by emailing us at info@danceresourcecenter.org. We may need to retain your information for legally permitted purposes and this will be explained to you if necessary. You may also complete any corrections, updates or deletion requests by emailing us at info@danceresourcecenter.org; you also may make your request by phone or postal mail at the address/phone number indicated at the end of this privacy policy.

Retention of Personal Information

Personal information that we collect, access or process will be retained only as long as necessary for the fulfilment of the purposes for which it was collected, unless otherwise provided in agreements between you and us or as required or authorized by law.

If you leave a comment on the Site, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.


The Site is not directed to children, nor do we knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of thirteen without verifiable parental consent. If you believe that a child has provided personal information to us, please contact us promptly as described below, and we will endeavor to investigate and delete such information from our systems.

Embedded content from other websites

The Site may contain links to other websites, such as artist pages or social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, that are not controlled in any by us and which may have privacy policies that differ from our own. We are not responsible for the activities and practices that take place on these websites. Accordingly, we strongly recommend that you review the privacy policy posted on any external site before disclosing any personal information. Please contact those websites directly if you have any questions about their privacy policies.

Articles on this Site may include embedded content (e.g., videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged into that website.

Social Media

We maintain a social media presence, such as a Facebook page, an Instagram page and a Twitter feed. You can interact with us through social media, such as by entering our contests, posting content, sharing material from our Site, and using our social media plug-ins. When you interact with us using social media, we may receive information such as your user ID, your profile picture, photos you post, and similar information, which is often determined by your privacy settings at social media sites. We may use the information for the same types of purposes we
describe throughout this Privacy Policy. Your use of social media sites is primarily governed by the site operators’ privacy policies and terms of service, and the information you share with us and with others is largely controlled by the privacy settings you have established at those sites.

Your California Privacy Rights

California residents who provide personal information in obtaining products or services for personal, family, or household use are entitled to request and obtain from us once a calendar year information about the customer information we shared with third parties for their own direct marketing purposes, including the categories of information and the names and addresses of those businesses with which we have shared such information. As discussed elsewhere in this privacy policy, we do not currently share the personal information of California residents with third parties for their own direct marketing purposes. However, if you have further questions about our privacy practices and compliance with California law, please contact us as explained below.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may change this privacy policy from time to time, including as required to keep current with rules and regulations, new technologies and security standards. When we do, we will post the change(s) on our Site. If we change the policy in a material and retroactive manner, we will provide appropriate notice to you.
