How is this information used?

When you purchase event tickets or merchandise, or make a donation, we need to collect data that will only be used for administering your transaction.  It will not be used to send you marketing/promotional messages from the chorus without your consent.

In most cases, credit card transactions are handled by a third party such as PayPal and we do not have access to your credit card information.  In any case, we do not share credit card information nor do we retain credit card information beyond the time needed to complete a single transaction.

We offer everybody the opportunity to subscribe (consent) to receive marketing and promotional information on the chorus’s activities (e.g. emails about forthcoming events).  When you sign-up to our marketing mailing list we will ask for your email address and will use this data to send you information about our events and activities.  We may use third party providers to send marketing messages from Bay Area Showcase but we will not use or share your data to send you marketing messages from/about other parties. 

Anything we send you will include a clear option to unsubscribe and you can also do so at any time by replying to the email.

When a person visits our website, we collect and analyze anonymized data on how many people have visited, what pages they have looked at and other statistical information.  See the following section for information about cookies.

What are 'cookies'?
'Cookies' are small text files that are stored by the browser (for example, Chrome, Internet Explorer, etc) on your computer or electronic device. They allow websites to 'remember' you for a period of time so that they can store things like user preferences and make the website quicker and easier for you to use.  Without cookies, some things on websites would not be able to work: for example, without cookies it might not be possible to know whether or not you are logged in on a website, which would prevent you from being able to see content restricted to logged-in members.

How does the Bay Area Showcase Chorus website use cookies?
The Bay Area Showcase Chorus website uses cookies to track whether you are signed in or not, and whether you wish to remain logged in when you return to this website in your next browser session.

Anonymous analytics cookies
Further, every time someone visits our website, software provided by Google Analytics generates an 'anonymous analytics cookie'.  These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before and what pages you visit. Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies and, if you don't, we generate new ones. This allows us to track how many individual users we have, and how often they visit the site. We use them to gather statistics, for example, the number of visits to a page, to help us identify if visitors would benefit from more information on a particular area.

How do I turn cookies off?
It is usually possible to stop your browser accepting cookies, or to stop it accepting cookies from a particular website.  All modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. You can usually find these settings in the 'options' or 'preferences' menu of your browser. To understand these settings, the following links may be helpful, or you can use the 'Help' option in your browser for more details.
Note: switching off cookies may prevent some aspects of our website from working fully.
