At Forward Arts, we respect your right to privacy and we understand that users of our web site need to be in control of their personal information. "Personal information" includes, but is not limited to, name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and credit card information. Forward Arts does not sell, rent, swap or otherwise disclose any of this information. Forward Arts adopted this privacy policy to inform users of the Internet site how the site does collect, store and use personal information submitted via the site.

1. Collection of Information
 Certain applications on the Forward Arts web site may require users to register or to provide personal information in order to make a commerce transaction or to enter a contest. Such personal information is not shared or sold to third parties. To better understand the needs of our Web site users, we may also request demographic information. Entry of such information is optional and if you choose not to enter such information, you can successfully use these applications. If we request demographic information, we will not share information about you as an individual with any other entity. If we do share demographic information with third parties, we will give them aggregate information only.

2. Mailing Lists
 If you provide your e-mail address, Forward Arts may contact you periodically with special offers, updated information and new services. Any e-mail sent to you by Forward Arts offer you the option to be removed from the e-mail mailing list. If you provide Forward Arts with your mailing address or telephone number, Forward Arts may also use this information to alert you to updated information and new services. If you wish to be removed from the mailing list, you may do so by contacting Forward Arts directly (see below).

3. Information to third parties Forward Arts may occasionally present a special contest or promotion on its Web site that is sponsored by another company. To qualify for entry, we may ask you to provide personal information. If we plan to share that information with the sponsor(s), we will provide a statement to that effect.

4. Financial information
 Forward Arts will protect any personal financial information that you share with us. If you make a purchase online, we will use your credit card number only to process your payment and will not use it for marketing purposes. For reasons of security, credit card information is not stored on our Web Server. We will retain order information for our records, but this information is never shared with third parties.

5. Links
 Our site may include links to other Web sites whose privacy policies we don't control. Once you leave our servers (you can check where you are by checking the URL in the location bar on your browser), use of any information you provide is governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the site you are visiting. That policy may differ from ours. If you can't find the privacy policy of any of these sites via a link from the site's homepage, you should contact the site directly for more information. The Detroit Symphony Orchestra is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites.

6. Cookies
 Certain applications in the Forward Arts web site invoke a standard feature found in browser software, called a "cookie." We use cookies only to track the progress of e-commerce transactions and to allow site users to move from one page to the next without having to re-enter personal order information. We do not use cookies to track user sessions, and we do not use or share information transferred through cookies with third parties for marketing or other purposes.

7. Children
