This is information that you choose to supply in order for us to provide an online service, or in response to a survey or question. This may include items such as: your name, home address, e-mail address, telephone number, preferences in areas of interest, or credit/debit card information. The Mesa Arts Center attempts only to collect the minimal amount of personal information needed in order to provide the service being requested. These online requests for personal information are no different than the types of questions that you would be asked if you were to visit the Mesa Arts Center facility, or use the telephone, to obtain needed services or information from the Mesa Arts Center. It is your option to supply us with this information, however in some cases it is required in order to complete certain online service requests. Alternative methods of obtaining services are offered, such as telephone and walk-in services, and you may contact the Mesa Arts Center to receive information on such alternatives.
If You Send Us Personally Identifiable Information
The Mesa Arts Center will make every reasonable effort to protect your online privacy. The Mesa Arts Center only collects the information that is required to respond to your request and restricts access to your personally identifiable information to those employees or agents that will respond to your request. The City does not intentionally disclose any personal information about our users to any third parties except other arts facilities/organizations requesting mailing lists, or as required by law and to the extent required to process your request for services or information. The Mesa Arts Center does occasionally share its mailing lists with other organizations for mutually beneficial programs. The Mesa Arts Center may supply mailing list information to other art entities and/or facilities. This information will only contain name, mailing address and/or e-mail address No other personally identifiable information will be provided. The Mesa Arts Center will supply personal and transactional information to agents that contract with the Mesa Arts Center to rent the venue and present programs, as transactions made for such events are enacted on their behalf via the Mesa Arts Center box office.
Disclosure and Application of Public Records Laws
The Mesa Arts Center may trade visitor mailing information, only to chosen third party arts entities and/or facilities including renters and promoters that use the Mesa Arts Center, but not to any other company or organization. The City will not disclose credit/debit card information to third parties, except for the purposes of completing your payment transaction through a secured financial network or to collection agencies.
Since the Mesa Arts Center is owned and operated by the City of Mesa, the City of Mesa may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide personally identifiable information, or credit/debit card data, to the appropriate governmental authorities as required by law.
