In addition, we describe the choices you can make about how we use the information you provide to us. We tell you how you can reach us to update your contact information, remove your name from our mailing list, or answer any questions you may have about our privacy practices.
What types of information does City of Asylum collect and use about me and how does City of Asylum use the information?
We collect and use information about you to communicate with you about our programs, services, and for fundraising. We collect information, for example, when you register for free tickets, when you subscribe to one of our publications, and when you register for our free Wi-Fi service. We may also communicate with you about programs of other organizations who have common interests and who do the same for us. Information collected When you subscribe to one of our services or publications, register for a free ticket, or make a donation, you provide us information such as your email address, name and ZIP code, and details of your contact (such as the event ticketed or the amount donated), so we may communicate with you.

We may collect information on our website using transient cookies, sometimes called session cookies.

Transient cookies are not linked to any personally identifiable information about you. Cookies can be disabled in your web browser. When you visit our web sites, we also collect anonymous information from you through services like Google Analytics. This includes the Internet browser you are using; the computer operating system you are using, time spent visiting the web site, usage patterns within the web site, and the domain name of the web site from which you linked to our site. This information is not matched to your personal information and does not personally identify you. We collect this information to help improve your experience on the web site. Additionally, City of Asylum may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to comply with the law or protect our interests and property. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers or government agencies in connection with issues related to fraud or government subpoenas and warrants.
FREE Hotspot Wireless Internet
City of Asylum provides a FREE Hotspot wireless internet Service in Alphabet City and in the Alphabet Reading Garden. It is provided by City of Asylum for use by patrons of these facilities. All users are required to log-in individually as an independent user. In order to use our free internet Service, you must remain an active Subscriber to our general communications. Unsubscribing automatically terminates your ability to use our free internet Service and restricts access to the Service in the future from the unsubscribed email address.
Other information you provide to us
Through surveys you may provide us with information such as event evaluations and preferences, reasons for attending and other information to help us learn more about your preferences. In addition, you may give us such information if you register for or redeem City of Asylum special offers, discount coupons or other promotions.
How may I indicate my privacy preferences?
Except as may be required in order to process a transaction, you may choose whether or not to give us your personal information, and if you do, how we use it. Sometimes you will be asked to give your consent expressly (such as by checking a box or clicking on a web page). Other times we may obtain your consent implicitly by asking you to provide information with stated purposes but without any express statement of consent (such as when you order a product or register for a free ticket or purchase a ticket). In other cases, your consent may be implied such as when you respond to a survey when it is understood that we will use the information to learn more about your needs and preferences, or your satisfaction as a customer so as to improve our products and services. In those cases your consent will be understood if you provide us with the requested information. You may notify us at any time that you do not wish us to use your information for any purposes that are not required to complete a transaction by contacting us in any of the ways described at the end of this Notice. You may at any time withdraw or change your consent to our use and disclosure of your information or request us to delete if from our files, subject to legal and contractual restrictions and requirements related to any transaction.
How long does City of Asylum retain my information?
We retain your information as long as it is required for the purposes identified when you provided the information for such specific purposes or for any new purposes identified by us and consented to by you, and for any appropriate time thereafter including a sufficient time following to permit you to ask any questions regarding its use. Your ticket and donation history and contact information which you provide are retained until you request us to delete or change it.
Does City of Asylum share the information it obtains about me with third parties?
City of Asylum does not share personal information about its patrons with any third parties outside City of Asylum and subsidiaries for their own marketing purposes. We do share information within the City of Asylum family of nonprofits and we report on aggregated data to funders of our programs. We also may share this information with service providers we have retained to perform services on our behalf, but these service providers are not authorized by us to use or disclose the information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements. We also may disclose information about you as required by law. We reserve the right to transfer any information we have about you in the event we are merged into an unrelated nonprofit. If this occurs, we will provide you with the opportunity to tell us that you would prefer that information about you not be transferred. Should such a transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to try to ensure that the transferee uses personal information about you in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Notice.
How does City of Asylum update its Privacy Notice?
City of Asylum services and promotions will change over time. This Privacy Notice will be updated periodically to reflect those changes and corresponding changes in our information practices. Whenever we revise this Privacy Notice, we will change the date on the notice to indicate when the revisions were made. We reserve the right to change our information practices and the terms of this Privacy Notice, and to apply the changed practices to all information we have about you. By using this web site, you agree to accept the terms of this Privacy Notice as stated at the time you use it. Any future access to this web site subsequent to the posting of a revised Privacy Notice will be deemed to be your acceptance of this Privacy Notice as then revised.
