Houston Arts and Media (HAM) is committed to respecting your online privacy and security. Our web site is developed in such a way so that you can visit us anonymously. Once you choose to provide us personally identifiable information, you are assured that this will only be used to support your relationship with HAM.
On some HAM web pages you can complete and send forms. The types of personal information collected on these pages are name, contact and possibly billing and transaction information. Your credit card transaction is processed through PayPal’s secure site. At other times, we may ask you for more specific information to improve our services.
HAM strives to provide you with the best possible service as we carry out our educational mission. The information we collect from you helps us to that end. Specifically, we use your information to help you complete a transaction, communicate with you, and perhaps to personalize our web site for you. Your credit card numbers are used only for your payment processing via PayPal’s website. They are not retained by HAM for other purposes. From time to time, we may also use your information to contact you or provide you with information we think would be of particular interest to you. We will always give you the opportunity to decline such contact. We will also follow local requirements, such as allowing you to opt in before receiving unsolicited contact, where applicable.
HAM will not sell, rent, lease, or trade your personally identifiable information to others. Unless we have your permission or are required by law, we will only share the personal data you provide online with HAM entities and/or our non-profit partners who are acting on our behalf. Such HAM entities and/or business partners, including those located in other countries, are also governed by our privacy policies with respect to the use of this data.
HAM will not use or share the personally identifiable information, which you provide to us online, in ways unrelated to the ones described above without first letting you know and offering you a choice. As previously stated, you may let us know if you do not wish to receive unsolicited materials from us, and we will do everything we can to honor such requests.
HAM is committed to ensuring the security of your information. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
