Our Commitment to Privacy
Information Required to Make an Online Purchase
When you make an online purchase using www.IndplsArtCenter.org, the Art Center will ask for the following information (“personally identifiable information”, or “PII”) from you:
Credit/Debit Card number, cardholder name and expiration date
Your telephone/fax number
This information is necessary to process your request to purchase online at IndplsArtCenter.org. In addition, you may provide some PII to the Art Center if you are participating in an Art Center frequent shopper program.
Information Collected for an Art Center Frequent Shopper Program:
When you enroll in an Art Center frequent shopper program, the Art Center collects PII that you specifically and voluntarily provide. Before you may purchase any of the products, services and events available at IndplsArtCenter.org through an Art Center frequent shopper program, you must provide some PII to the Art Center. Specific information required includes your full name, address, telephone number and e-mail address.
At the Art Center’s request, you may also choose to voluntarily provide additional PII to the Art Center, such as your birth date, gender, marital status, etc. The Art Center will use the PII provided by you to create an account profile for your Art Center frequent shopper account. The Art Center may also gather PII through your voluntary subscription to the Art Center’s e-mail specials, and your voluntary participation in surveys, polls, promotions, contests, and sweepstakes sponsored by the Art Center.
The Art Center collects PII in order to: (1) tailor your experience at IndplsArtCenter.org to your interests; (2) help the Art Center continually refine IndplsArtCenter.org and improve the services offered by the Art Center; (3) provide you with information about promotions and offers through e-mail and at IndplsArtCenter.org that may be of interest to you; and (4) allow the Art Center to contact you for customer service, if necessary. Some of the PII that the Art Center may collect is described below:
Membership Information: If you register to become a Member of an Art Center frequent shopper program, the Art Center will send you a username and password, and will ask you to provide your e-mail address. The Art Center will use this information to create your Member account and will send you a Welcome e-mail to verify that the information you provided is correct and to provide explanatory information to you relating to IndplsArtCenter.org.
User Profile Information. When a class registration is made at IndplsArtCenter.org, the Art Center collects the billing address, credit/debit card number, cardholder name and credit/debit card expiration date of the credit/debit card used for the purchase. The Art Center also collects the full name, address, and contact telephone number for each traveler. You may also be asked to include information about each student’s preferences, such as frequent shopper numbers or class numbers. One benefit of providing this information to the Art Center is that it will be quicker for you when making future purchases, as you will not have to type the same information repeatedly. If you choose not to provide the Art Center with information relating to your preferences, you may still purchase services at IndplsArtCenter.org. When you purchase products and services for someone else using an Art Center frequent shopper program, the Art Center may collect PII and preferences about that individual. Because they will be unable to view or change any information you provide on their behalf, you should obtain the consent of those individuals prior to providing their PII to the Art Center.
Purchase Information. When products or services are purchased by you through an Art Center frequent shopper program, the Art Center collects the credit card information (including card number, type, and expiration date), the cardholder’s name, and the billing address of the credit card used for the purchase. This information is also stored in the account profile area of your Member account.
Information Collected When You Contact the Art Center. When you contact the Art Center frequent shopper program with a question, comment, suggestion or request for assistance, you may be required to provide PII, such as your full name, username, e-mail address, and/or contact telephone number. If you personally contact or send communications to the Art Center, authorized employees may update your Member profile to reflect any new PII received from you.

The Art Center may offer visitors to IndplsArtCenter.org the chance to participate in promotions, contests, or sweepstakes. Participation is voluntary.
