to cover information collected and used by Members, Inc. via third party social media platforms, such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter or YouTube, either generally or through Members, Inc. branded pages.

 

1. Information Collection and Use

 

Personal Information

 

Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable such as your name, address, email address, or phone number, or other information that is not otherwise publicly available, including information related to your usage of Members, Inc's products and services.

 

You may visit and browse Members, Inc's websites as often as you like without logging in and no personal information about your visit will be collected.

 

Members, Inc collects personal information when you request information about our services, participate in a promotion or an online survey, contact Members, Inc with a question or suggestion, apply for employment with Members, Inc, and when you attend events produced by Members, Inc.

 

How Information is Collected

 

We may ask you to provide specific information. Depending on the nature of your interaction with Members, Inc, we may ask you for information such as your name, phone number, physical address, company related information, email address, credit card information including expiration date and billing address, and product preferences.

 

We may use Cookies, tracking tags and other technology. Members, Inc uses cookies and other tracking mechanisms across our websites and social media platforms. These technologies work by sending a small amount of data from our websites which is stored on your computer's hard drive ("cookies"). Our site can then read this cookie, which helps us keep track of how you use our websites and remember your preferences. Many web browsers accept cookies by default but contain an option for you to turn off cookie acceptance if you prefer. If you turn off acceptance, there may be some features of our websites that will not be available to you and some webpages may not display properly.

 

In addition, Members, Inc incorporates tracking or measurement tools into our websites and other communications which enable us to track your browsing activity on Members, Inc websites as well as across social media platforms or other non-Members, Inc websites and applications (known as "tracking tags", "web beacons," "action tags" or "single-pixel gifs"). If you utilize services which are linked to these tracking tags, these third-party services may also provide non-personal information to Members, Inc about your activity on non-Members, Inc websites and social media platforms, which we may utilize to increase the effectiveness of our promotional efforts and to personalize our services and offerings for you.

 

Cookies, tracking tags, and embedded third-party features provide overall usage patterns for our websites that we use for analysis and to provide personalized services and advertising content.  Your browsing may be tracked by these third-party services for their own use and for their clients. Such tracking could give information about you as an individual to third-parties based on your browsing activity, but this information will not include personal information unless you specifically provide it.

 

The ability of tracking tags to gather and use your information through any third-party services is governed by that service's privacy policy, which may differ from Members, Inc's policies. Members, Inc is not responsible for the privacy practices or the use of the data collected by these third-party services.

 

How Information is Used

 

First and foremost, Members, Inc uses any information you provide to us to provide you with products and services such as service purchases and other specifically requested information and activities. In addition, we may perform (or have third parties perform) analyses of visitors' behavior, and may share data with sponsors, advertisers, and collaborators.

 

Your personal information may be used by us (or third parties engaged by us) to: (1) customize the advertising and the content that you see, (2) fulfill your requests for products and services, (3) contact you, (4) conduct research, (5) respond to subpoenas, court orders or legal process, and (6) establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.

 

Certain events serviced by Members, Inc are produced or presented by third parties. When you make a purchase to a performance presented or produced by one of these third party organizations, Members, Inc may provide them with information regarding your purchase. This information may include, but shall not be limited to, your name, address, telephone number and email address, as well as details of your purchase, which may include, but shall not be limited to, the date you purchased your tickets, any offer you responded to, the locations of your seats, and the dollar amount of your transaction.

 

We will on occasion share information gathered from our patrons with selected third party vendors who assist Members, Inc with promoting and marketing our programs and services. This might include customer research, management of customer databases, promotional mailings or other targeted promotions. This information may include your name, address, e-mail address, site usage data and purchase information.

In addition Members, Inc may provide your name and address or phone number to third parties whose products we believe may be of interest to you (although we do not share any other information about you, the selection criteria may result in the third party being able to identify your relationship with Members, Inc in a broad manner, i.e., that you are a subscriber or donor, or may have attended a particular production). You can request at any time that we do not share your name and address or phone numbers with such third parties. Members, Inc does not monitor or control the privacy policies of such third parties.

 

 

2. Anonymity
