CultureStrike firmly believes in protecting the privacy of our artists, partners, supporters, and anyone else who visits our site. Our bottom line: we won’t ever share, give, or sell your personal information with other organizations or entities without your express consent.
We do not share any of your personal information or data with unaffiliated groups without your explicit permission. We may, however, share some of your information with affiliated third parties (for example, contractors hired for specific projects) who are directly involved in helping us perform our work. These parties are bound to the terms of this policy, operate under our supervision, and will not use or share your information beyond the stated scope of the defined project.
Mailing Lists & Contact Information
CultureStrike maintains an opt-in email list powered by MailChimp, with a web form appearing in the footer of our website. Please refer to MailChimp’s terms of service. We may also store the contact information you provide in other databases maintained exclusively by us, including third-party services. We reserve the right to transfer our mailing list management to a different third-party provider, and to transfer existing user data to that new provider to provide seamless service.
We may also ask you to voluntarily provide your email or other contact information when downloading specific content (such as PDF resources), registering for events, making a donation, or when taking other actions on our website; in these cases, we may add your email to our mailing list.
If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from our email list, please refer to instructions at the footer of each email or here.
When you donate to CultureStrike, your credit card information will be used only for this transaction (as well as any recurring or monthly donations you set up) through our secure online payment system, operated by Paypal under the management of our fiscal sponsor CELEF. This platform does not retain your credit card information without your permission and uses bank-standard encryption to protect your transaction. (Please refer to Paypal’s terms of service for further information.) Financial and personal information contained in donations made via check will also be kept confidential and used only for the purposes of processing the transaction.
CultureStrike does not solicit personally identifying information from children. Visitors who are under 13 years of age are encouraged to ask their parent or legal guardian for assistance when using our website and should not submit any personally identifying information to the website.
In order to better serve our site’s visitors, we periodically analyze web logs and other data generated by site usage, which help us understand trends such as where traffic is coming from or what content is most appealing, and allows us to consider changes to make it a more informative and pleasing experience. To this end, we may collect IP addresses and/or use third-party services such as Google Analytics or tools built in to our Content Management System(s). (Please refer to Google’s terms of service.) We may also use embedded images in emails to track open rates for our mailings, in order to better understand how to best convey our work to our supporters. URLs contained in emails may contain an ID that enables us to correctly identify the person who takes an action using a web page. We may occasionally present a shortened URL that references a longer URL which contains an ID—we do this to simplify the display, to prevent links from becoming broken when copied, and to ensure compatibility with email programs which do not handle long URLs. When a shortened URL is displayed in an email, you will see the full URL in the browser's address bar when you access the page.
