Welcome to the official Web site of the Music Academy of the West. We have created this Web site to provide information about the Music Academy, its annual Summer School and Festival, concerts and special events, to fulfill ticket requests, and to accept contributions.
To help us achieve these purposes in a manner that is convenient for you, we gather two types of limited information from visitors to our Web site: anonymous usage information, and the personal information provided by those who register with us. Details about what information we gather and how we use it is presented here. Music Academy of the West is committed to using reasonable best efforts to ensure the privacy of all our visitors.
You are welcome to visit and browse our Web site as often as you like without logging in, and no personally identifiable information about your visit will be collected. Our Web servers track usage information for these visits, but on an entirely anonymous basis. This usage information is general data about how visitors use our Web site, which pages are most frequently visited, which Web sites most frequently refer visitors to our site, and how long patrons spend on our site.
Our servers track your usage by logging your IP address. We do not associate the anonymous information we collect through the tags with any personal information, and we do not otherwise monitor this information on an individual basis. Instead, we aggregate this usage information and use it only to monitor broad usage trends, to evaluate the effectiveness of our Web site’s design, to determine what customers do and do not use on the Web site, and to improve the Web site’s overall usability.
We may perform, or have third parties perform, analyses of visitors’ behavior, and may share aggregated data with sponsors and advertisers, again on an entirely anonymous basis.
Personal information is any data related to the personal identity of a visitor to our Web site. A customer’s name, address, phone number, credit card number, e-mail address, and purchase history are all examples of personal information.
We do not require visitors to provide any personal information in order to browse our Web site or to obtain general information on our Web site. We do, however, require Web site users to register and provide personal information in order to purchase tickets, request a brochure or other information, or make contributions. In these cases we collect only the personal information that a registrant specifically provides when registering, including User Name and Password.
If you register, this information is used to fulfill your request and to provide a record of your transaction. It is stored by the Music Academy of the West and used again in subsequent visits only if you wish to make another purchase, make a contribution, or have an inquiry. Until that point your return visit is anonymous as only logging in triggers personal recognition on our site.
We also use personal information from registrants to add to or update our postal mailing lists and telephone lists for season schedules, special offers, and general information. We may also use personal information to evaluate our registrants’ usage and transactions, and to analyze how we can make the site more effective and interesting for you.
Music Academy of the West values your support and privacy.
Occasionally, we allow other select not-for-profit organizations and arts sponsors to post their season schedules to our mailing lists. Should you prefer not to have your name shared, please e-mail [email protected] and request to be placed on the “DO NOT TRADE” list.
Periodically, we provide registrants with important last-minute information and exclusive offers via e-mail, such as street closures, program and guest artist changes, special offers, information from our sponsors, and notification of special events. When this or any other new function becomes available to our patrons, you will have the opportunity to opt-out of receiving such e-mail updates should you wish to do so. Registrants may unsubscribe and manage their contact preferences at https://www.musicacademy.org/unsubscribe/.
We do not solicit personal information from people known to be children.

Keeping Your Information Secure and Accurate
Music Academy of the West attempts to protect your information with appropriate security measures to guard against its loss, misuse, or alteration within reason.
