Your Information and How We May Make Use of It
From time to time, we may collect general, non-personal, statistical information about the use of the Sites, such as how many visitors visit a specific page on the Sites, how long they stay on that page, and which hyperlinks, if any, they "click" on. We collect this information in order to determine which areas of the Sites are most popular and to enhance the Sites for visitors. We may also group this information into aggregate visitor data in order to describe the use of the Sites to our existing or potential business partners, sponsors, or other third parties. However, please be assured that this aggregate data will in no way personally identify you or any other visitors to the Sites.
For your convenience and information, the Sites offer features that require you to provide us with personal information, such as your name, mailing address, phone number and e-mail address. For example, we request personal information if you choose to “Contact Us”, if you register on the Sites for classes, workshops and programs offered by Latin Dance Factory (via PayPal), or if you purchase merchandise from our online store or subscribe to our e-mail list. In addition, if you register for classes or other programs or purchase merchandise through our online store, we will request your credit card information securely via PayPal in order to bill you for those programs or purchases.
We will use personal information that you submit to us for the purposes for which it was submitted. For example, if you Contact Us with some questions or comments, we will use the information provided in your application to answer your questions and or comments, sign you in for classes and for other internal purposes as further described on the Latin Dance Factory Web site. As another example, if you submit registration information for a class, we will use your information to register you for that class and process your payment for that class. Furthermore, we may use your personal information to send you periodic communications by e-mail and regular mail to keep you up to date on current events at Latin Dance Factory and new programs, products or other opportunities that we may offer. You may opt out of receiving promotional or advertising e-mail communications from us by sending an e-mail to dance@latindancefactory with “unsubscribe” in the heading subject line to us at any moment
Latin Dance Factory offers dance classes, workshops and programs to mainly adults over the age of 17. However, we do not knowingly collect or maintain personal information from children under the age of 14 on the Sites, except for the limited circumstances described below. In the event a child under the age of 14 submits a question to us on the Sites and identifies his or her age, we may use the child's e-mail address for the sole purpose of responding to the child's question on a one-time-only basis. However, we will not use the child's e-mail address to recontact the child and we will delete it from our records once we have responded. We encourage all visitors to the Sites who are under the age of 18 and wish to communicate with us to use the assistance of their parents.
Children under the age of 14 will not be permitted to register online for a Latin Dance Class sessions. Any teenager who is at least 14 years old but under the age of 18 that would like to register for a classes will be required to provide the name and e-mail address of their parent or guardian. We will then send an e-mail notifying the parent or guardian of the teenager's registration.
Disclosure of Personal Information
We do not sell any personal information to any third parties. We also will not share any of your personal information with third parties, except for the very limited purposes discussed in this paragraph.
We may sometimes use other businesses to perform certain services for us, such as processing credit card payments, delivering our merchandise, sending postal mail and providing marketing assistance and data analysis. We may provide personal information to those businesses when that information is necessary for them to complete a requested transaction or otherwise perform their duties. Those businesses will not be permitted to use your information for any purposes other than to perform their services for Latin Dance Factory.
We do reserve the right to disclose visitor information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interfering with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other visitors, or anyone else that could be harmed by those activities. This includes our right to exchange information with other organizations in order to protect against fraud and to reduce credit risk. We also reserve the right to disclose visitor information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it. Customer information is generally one of the business assets involved in the sale of a business. In the event that Latin Dance Factory or all of its assets were acquired, customer information would be one of the transferred assets.
An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer whenever you're surfing the Web. Web servers—the big computers that "serve up" Web pages—automatically identify your computer by its IP address. We collect IP addresses for purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information to our advertisers or other third parties, and to track the use of the Sites. When visitors request pages from the Sites, our servers log the visitors' IP addresses. It is not our practice to link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a visitor's session will be logged, but the visitor remains anonymous to us. However, we reserve the right to use IP addresses to identify a visitor only when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with the Sites' policies or to protect our services or customers, the Sites, or others.
Links to Other Sites
Protecting the security of your personal information is very important to us. When you transmit personal information or credit card information from your PC to PayPal and / or Google Checkout servers, your information is protected by both a "firewall" (a combination of computer hardware and software that helps keep unauthorized visitors from accessing information within our computer network) and industry standard SSL (secure socket layer) encryption. Once we receive your transmission, we will take reasonable precautions to ensure its security on our systems. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and cannot be responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your personal information.
