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.
