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 site.
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 section.
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 first few words of a message through our Contact Us form.
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.
This web site may contains link to other sites. Please be aware that we, Sculpture in the South, are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.
Because of security issues, a user's personal financial information will NEVER be requested via our forms online. ALL information requested on our web site is transmitted to us via unsecured email. These email transmissions are not encrypted for security. Because of this, users should NEVER offer unsolicited financial information (such as credit card number or social security number) in any field 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.
If users have any questions about the security of our web site, users can send a message through our Contact Us form.
Correcting/Updating/Deleting/Deactivating Personal Information
If a user’s personally identifiable information changes (such as zip code, phone, email or postal address), or if a user no longer desires to be contacted by us, we provide a way to correct, update or delete/deactivate users’ personally identifiable information. This can usually be done with a message through our Contact Us form. Or, contact us by telephone or postal mail at the contact information listed below.
