Privacy Policy

Opera Colorado is committed to respecting your privacy and recognizes your need for appropriate protection and management of any personally identifiable information you share with us. Opera Colorado has established this Privacy Policy to let you know what information we may collect from you on the publicly available portion of (“the website”) and through various other interactions with you, and how we may use and share that information. By using the website and/or providing us personal information, you agree to accept the terms of our Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, please do not use the website or provide us any personal information. This Privacy Policy applies to information that we collect on this website and to information that we may collect by other “offline” means, including, without limitation, sales calls and other business transactions.

Donor Privacy Policy

Opera Colorado will never sell, rent, or trade information that identifies a patron as a donor to any third party, except where that information is shared with service providers, agents, or independent contractors who help Opera Colorado maintain and provide necessary administrative services. To the extent that any donations are processed through a third-party service provider, our donors’ information will only be used for purposes necessary to process the donation. Otherwise, data regarding donors is not shared without your permission or unless ordered to do so by a court of law. We offer regular opportunities for donors to be recognized publicly in association with the level of their gift. All donors are given the opportunity to remain anonymous, to decline public and/or private recognition, and can request that their information not be shared in any way at any time.

Information We May Collect

Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name; a home, business, or other physical address; a phone number; and an email address. We collect personal information from our website users and patrons only when such information is voluntarily provided to us, including, without limitation, in connection with inquiries about our services through the “Contact Us” page; as part of signing up for our email subscriptions; or in the process of your business transactions with us.

How We May Use Your Information

If you provide us with personal information, we may retain and use that information for several purposes, including facilitating and otherwise addressing your inquiry, request, subscriptions, or business transactions and relationship with Opera Colorado. For example, we may use your personal information in order to respond to your questions or requests for information about Opera Colorado, its events, and its services. We may also use personal information to ensure compliance with our policies and applicable law.

With Whom We May Share Your Information

We may sometimes use other businesses to perform certain services for us, such as providing mailing services and processing inquiries. We may provide personal information to those businesses when that information is necessary for them to complete a requested transaction or otherwise perform their duties. Opera Colorado will take reasonable steps to ensure that these third-party service providers are obligated to protect personal information on Opera Colorado’s behalf. Opera Colorado may share your personal information with other non-profit organizations for marketing purposes only. We reserve the right to disclose such information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.
