Privacy

Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art (LAAFA) recognizes that privacy is important.  This Privacy Policy applies to all of the websites and products owned and/or operated by LAAFA.

Collection and Use of Information

LAAFA website permits users, subject further to LAAFA’s online terms of use, to register for events or programs, request information, enter contests, vote in polls or otherwise express opinions or submit comments.  As part of such use, you may be asked to register for a free ID and password and to provide certain personally identifying information such as name, address, phone number, email address, birth date, ZIP code, gender, personal interests and credit card information for transactions.  LAAFA uses your information to perform transactions, and deliver services or information you have requested.  LAAFA also uses your information to contact you when necessary for customer service purposes.  We may combine the information that we have with information that we obtain from business partners or third parties to provide you with a better product and/or LAAFA experience.  LAAFA may use information relating to your visit or use of our website, or information you provide to us, for market research purposes in order to continually improve the product and services that LAAFA delivers to you.

If you choose to submit content for publication, we may publish your screen name and other information as provided by you or to personalize your user experience.

LAAFA receives and records information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, LAAFA cookies (small pieces of information stored by your browser), and the page(s) you request.  LAAFA uses this information to customize the content you see, fulfill your requests for products and services, improve our services, contact you, conduct research, and provide anonymous reporting for internal and external clients.

Except as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy, it is LAAFA’s policy not to distribute to third parties any personally identifying information about you without your approval.  Upon obtaining your consent, LAAFA may provide access to or otherwise disclose your personally identifying information to third parties.  However, we may aggregate certain personally identifying information – meaning that the information from many LAAFA users is grouped together in a way that does not disclose the personal information of any particular user – without your consent.

You may choose not to submit certain personal information while on our website.  In such instances, LAAFA may not be able to provide you with certain services.

If you are using our services to register for an event, program or to purchase a third party product, LAAFA shares the personal information you provide with applicable third party(ies) to fulfill your request.  Each such party operates independently from LAAFA and maintains its own privacy and security policy.  LAAFA bears no responsibility for the activities of any such third party to whom LAAFA provides information to process your request and you should contact those third parties directly regarding your preferences for the use of your personal information.

Legal Disclosures

LAAFA may release your personal information to third parties: (a) in order to comply with a valid legal requirement such as in compliance with any law, regulation, search warrant subpoena or court order; or (b) in special cases, when we believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent or take action regarding any illegal or unauthorized activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person or violations of our Terms of Use.

Information Security

LAAFA has established and maintains reasonable security procedures to protect the confidentiality, security and integrity of your personally identifiable information, including the use of secure socket layer (SSL) and encryption methods.  We regularly evaluate our data collection, storage and processing practices and security to guard against unauthorized access to our systems.  You can help to protect your information by safeguarding your LAAFA password and using caution and discretion when posting information on public areas of the sites.

Although LAAFA uses commercially reasonable efforts to safeguard your information, transmissions made by means of the Internet cannot be fully secure in all instances and we cannot guarantee that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is not consistent with this Privacy Policy.

If addition, if at anytime, you no longer want us to send you any regular communications, you may “opt-out” of such future communications by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of the newsletter or email.  To “opt-out” of products, programs, services, or offers from our trusted partners, please contact contactus@laafa.org.

Changes

LAAFA may transfer the personal information collected under this Privacy Policy to a third party in the event of a transfer of ownership such as a merger, acquisition or any form of sale of the majority of the assets of LAAFA.

LAAFA reserves the right to modify or supplement this privacy policy at anytime without any prior notice to you.  If we make any changes, we will update the LAAFA website and this Privacy Policy to include such change.  Please regularly review this Privacy Policy to keep up to date with any changes that may affect your use of the LAAFA Website.  Your continued use of the LAAFA website once the revised privacy policy has been posted on the website affirms your agreement to such changes.
