Information Collection and Use
Sculpture in the South is the sole owner of the information collected
on www.sculptureinthesouth.com. Sculpture in the South collects
information from visitors at a few different points on our
Web site, including the contact form.
We may store information that we collect through cookies, log files,
clear gifs, and/or third parties to create a profile of our users.
A profile is stored information that we keep on individual users
that details their viewing preferences. Consequently, collected
information may be tied to the user's personally identifiable
information to provide offers and improve the content of the
site for the user. This profile is used to tailor a user’s visit
to our Web site, and to direct pertinent marketing promotions
to them. We do not share your profile with other, unnecessary,
third parties (see Third Party Intermediaries).
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s computer tied
to information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way
linked to any personally identifiable information while on our
site. We use session ID cookies. For the session ID cookie, once
users close the browser, the cookie simply terminates. If users
reject the cookie, they may still use our site. The only drawback
to this is that the user may be limited in some areas of our
Like most standard Web site servers, we use log files to gather
statistical information about visitors to our Web site. This
includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet
service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type,
date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends. We administer
the site, track user’s movement in the aggregate, and gather
broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses,
etc. are in no way linked to personally identifiable information.
Communications from the Site
We offer visitors the opportunity to receive timely notification
and information on events, classes, etc. through a subscription
form where we ask for an email address. Out of respect for the
privacy of our users, we present the option to stop receiving
these types of communications. Please see the Choice / Opt-out
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need
to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we
have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply
with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process
served on our Web site.
Third Party Intermediaries
In the event we someday offer merchandise for sale on the site,
or the opportunity to enroll in and pay for special events, classes,
lectures, membership, or other intangible services, we would
likely use an outside shipping company to ship merchandise, and
a credit card processing company to bill users. These companies
do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information
for any secondary purposes.
In the event Sculpture in the South goes through a business transition,
such as a merger or being acquired by another non-profit organization
or company, etc., users’ personal information will, in most instances,
be part of the assets transferred.
Our users are given the opportunity to ‘opt-out’ of having their
information used for purposes not directly related to our site
at the point where we ask for information.
Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or other
communications may opt-out of receiving these communications by
replying with "Unsubscribe" in the subject line in the email or
email us at email@example.com.
Users of our site will be notified when their information is
being collected by any outside parties. We do this so our users
can make an informed choice as to whether or not they should proceed
with services that require an outside party.

Because of security issues, a user's personal financial information
will NEVER be requested via our forms online. ALL information requested

in our forms on our web site. Users will only be asked for personal
financial information via a secure shopping cart (like PayPal).
Users should always look for the "https://..." in the URL that
signifies a secure page.
We take every precaution possible to protect our users’
information offline. All of our users’ information is restricted
in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform
a specific job (for example, a bookkeeper or office manager)
are granted access to personally identifiable information.
