Information Collection and Use
The situations where personal information may be collected include the following:
1. Web Forms (requests for information, registrations, and feedback)
The Music Settlement’s Web site may provide the opportunity for you to complete forms and registrations, such as admission applications, event registration, and feedback forms. The personal information you provide will be used only for such purposes as are described at the point of collection.
2. Network Traffic Logs
In addition to the personal information described above, our system collects server log data that may include an IP address, the type of browser and operating system used, the time of day visited, the pages viewed and the information requested through searches. We aggregate this data and use it for statistical purposes, helping us to understand, for example, the amount of interest in portions of our Web site and ways to improve its navigation and content.
3. Web server
Our Web server stores a small text file of information on your computer to distinguish your visit to our site from others who may be visiting our site at the same time. This is only active while your computer is visiting our site and is not being used for marketing purposes or for any reason that may compromise your privacy. In addition to being anonymous, this text file is set to expire when you close your browser.
4. Email Trackbacks
Our email server has a spam filter on it to dissuade the creation or receipt of malware email messages. If you ever receive an email from our themusicsettlement.org domain, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Disclosure of Information
The identifiable personal information you provide through e-mail lists, Web forms, and surveys is considered private data. The data may be shared with employees of The Music Settlement or artists-in-residence as necessary to provide the specific service requested, but no personal identification information is ever shared with other organizations, advertisers, or other third parties without explicit permission of the addressee.
The Settlement does reserve the right to share user information in the event that it is necessary to comply with any legal process.
Commitment to Security
The School is committed to ensuring the safety of the Web site and its users.
This site has security measures in place to protect all information under our control. The network infrastructure is protected by a firewall and traffic is monitored and logged both on the firewall and on the servers. All administrative activities are carried out over secure, encrypted links between our campuses.
