Information We Collect
Lantern Theater Company is concerned about protecting the privacy of our website visitors. Lantern Theater Company does not collect personally identifying data, such as names, addresses, and email addresses, except when voluntarily submitted by website visitors. Our site uses online software through which our patrons, donors, and guests request tickets, information, and other services. We collect buyer contact information (e.g., email and mailing address), unique identifiers (e.g., patron ID number), and financial information (e.g., credit card numbers). Contact information received is used to fulfill orders and send information about the Lantern to our patrons by email or conventional mail. A patron's contact information is also used to contact the patron when necessary. Unique identifiers (such as patron ID numbers) are collected from website patrons to verify the user identity and for use as account numbers in our database. Information that Lantern Theater Company collects is used to make our website more useful by helping us learn about the number of visitors to our site and the types of technology our visitors use. We do not track or record information about individuals and their visits. The information we receive depends on what you do when visiting this site. In general, we receive two types of information: the personal information you provide voluntarily, and aggregate information about users as a whole.
We may request personal information when you buy tickets or merchandise or register for online contests or other promotional programs we may offer. This personal information may include your name, email address, phone number, street address, etc.
Because of the way Internet computer servers work, we receive certain types of information about general activity at the Lantern Theater Company website. This does not include personal identifying information, but does include the number of times the Lantern Theater Company website is visited, which pages are requested most, the domain names (e.g., "aol.com") from which visitors are coming, and the date and time of each visit. Lantern Theater Company compiles this information into an aggregate form for statistical analysis and reporting. These reports track website activity overall rather than on an individual level.
The personal information you voluntarily provide is used to fulfill your request(s) (e.g., for ticket orders, information, entry in ticket giveaways, etc.). Because aggregate information does not include personal identifying information, we cannot use aggregate information to identify you. We review it for statistical purposes. This helps us continue to build a better website for you. We may disclose aggregate data to third parties (such as advertisers or actual or potential donors) or include it in public records.
Lantern Theater Company uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology for online ordering. SSL provides strong encryption and security for processing online transactions. If you experience any difficulty or prefer to place your order by telephone, please contact the Lantern Box Office at 215.829.0395.
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know that you no longer wish to receive news and special offers from Lantern Theater Company. Remember, however, that by electing to remove your name from the list, you will no longer have first access to ticket offers and the latest news about Lantern Theater Company.
