We automatically collect information when you visit the Sites including your device's IP address, and basic statistics about how you use the Sites.
We collect information that you submit when visiting the Sites including registration information (your name, email address, postal address, telephone number, etc.), contact information if you sign up for our newsletter or contact us with an inquiry (email address, telephone number), payment card information if you make a donation or purchase (name, billing and shipping address, card information, email and telephone number), or other information as needed to provide particular programs or services (e.g., insurance applications, applications for fiscal sponsorship, venue data for one of our space directories, etc.)
We use the collected information for our general business purposes and to improve our programs and services in support of our charitable mission. We use your contact information to respond to your inquiries or to provide information on products or services to you.
We allow selected third parties to place cookies through the Sites to provide us with better insights into the use of the Sites or user demographics (e.g., Google Analytics). These third parties may collect information about your online activities over time and across different websites. We do not control the use of such third party cookies or the resulting information and we are not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties.
We do not currently use technology that recognizes a "do-not-track" signal from your web browser.
Making a donation or purchase through the Sites requires that you provide credit card information. Certain other services, such as applying for insurance, require that you provide social security or employer identification numbers. These are examples of "sensitive information" that must be treated with extra caution.
Our policy is not to store sensitive information except when it is necessary to do so. For example, we do not store full credit card numbers after transmitting them to our payment processing vendor.
When it is necessary to store sensitive information, such as the tax ID number associated with a fiscally sponsored project, we generally store it an encrypted format. This ensures that, in the highly unlikely event that our database were breached, the attacker would have a very hard time accessing the information in a useful format.
When sensitive information must be transmitted over the internet, such as when we send a credit card number to our payment processing vendor, it is transmitted over encrypted channels, making it much more difficult for an attacker to intercept and steal.
The Sites are neither designed nor intended to be attractive for use by children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13. If you are under 13 please do not submit any information to us.

We send two different kinds of email:
You can choose not to receive bulk emails from us by "unsubscribing" using the instructions in any such email you receive from us. However, we need to send transactional emails in order to provide our programs and services, so you can't unsubscribe from those.
You can choose to delete or block cookies by setting your browser to either reject all cookies or to allow cookies only from selected sites. If you block cookies, however, you won't be able to login to the Sites and certain other features may not function as well.
Your privacy is important to us. We will never share your personal information with advertisers or other third-parties, with certain limited exceptions:
Fractured Atlas does not sell, trade, or share our donors' personal information with any other organizations or vendors, nor do we send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations, without the donor's consent. As a rule, however, we do provide our fiscally sponsored artists with information on the donors who have contributed to support their specific projects. 99% of the time this is what such donors expect, but requests for anonymity from the supported artists will be honored.
California residents are permitted by California law to request information about the manner in which we share certain categories of information with others for their marketing purposes. Please email us at email@example.com to request this disclosure. (Note that the state of California requires that we post this notice. We love Californians, but we will happily extend the same courtesy to anyone, whether or not the person is a resident of California!)
The Sites contains links to other websites not owned or controlled by Fractured Atlas. Hopefully it is obvious that we, Fractured Atlas, are not responsible for the contents or privacy practices of such sites. You should read their privacy policies before submitting any information to them.
