Tango Addict’s Inc and sandiegotangofestival.com do not control these third-party websites and can not represent that their policies and practices will be consistent with this Privacy Policy. For example, other web sites may collect or use personal information about you in a manner different from that described in this document.

Types of Information We Collect

Non-Personal Information

Non-personal information is data about usage and service operation that is not directly associated with a specific personal identity. Tango Addict’s Inc may collect and analyze non-personal information to evaluate how visitors use the web site.

Aggregate Information

Tango Addict’s Inc may gather aggregate information, which refers to information your computer automatically provides to us and that can not be tied back to you as a specific individual. Examples include referral data (the web sites you visited just before and just after our site), the pages viewed, time spent at our Web site, and Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. For example, when you request a page from sandiegotangofestival.com, our web server logs your IP address to create aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns and for purposes of system administration.

Log Files

Every time you request or download a file from the web site, our web server may store data about these events and your IP address in a log file. Tango Addict’s Inc may use this information to analyze trends, administer the web site, track users’ movements, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use or for other business purposes.

Cookies

Our site may use a feature of your browser to set a “cookie” on your computer. Cookies are small packets of information that a web server stores on your computer. Our web server can then read those cookies whenever you visit our web site. We may use cookies in a number of ways, such as to process your festival registration order, to deliver content specific to your interests, and to track the pages you’ve visited. These cookies allow us to use the information we collect to customize your experience so that your visit to our site is as relevant and as valuable to you as possible.

Most browser software can be set up to deal with cookies. You may modify your browser preference to provide you with choices relating to cookies. You have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject cookies, certain of the functions and conveniences of our web site may not work properly, and you may be unable to use some of the services we provide. Most browsers offer instructions on how to reset the browser to reject cookies in the “Help” section of the toolbar. We do not link non-personal information from cookies to personally identifiable information without your permission.

Web Beacons

Our web site also may use web beacons to collect non-personal information about your use of our web site and your use of our newsletters. The information collected by web beacons allows us to statistically monitor how many people are using our web site; how many people open our emails; and for what purposes these actions are being taken. Our web beacons are not used to track your activity outside of our web site or our newsletters. Tango Addict’s Inc does not link non-personal information from web beacons to personally identifiable information without your permission.

Personal Information

Personal information is information that is associated with your name or personal identity. Tango Addict’s Inc uses personal information to better understand your needs and interests and to provide you with better service. On some of our web pages, you may be able to request information, subscribe to mailing lists, provide feedback, or register for events. The types of personal information you provide to us on these pages may include e-mail address, name, city, country, gender, or billing information.

How We Use Your Information

Tango Addict’s Inc may use personal information to provide services that support the activities of visitors to our web site.

Credit card information is never collected or stored by our web server. Payment processing services are provided by a third-party payment service (PayPal). Tango Addict’s Inc may share your personal information with this third-party payment service to facilitate these transactions.

Information Sharing

Tango Addict’s Inc does not sell, rent, or lease any individual’s personal information or lists of email addresses to anyone for marketing purposes, and we take commercially reasonable steps to maintain the security of this information. However, Tango Addict’s Inc reserves the right to supply any such information to any organization into which Tango Addict’s Inc may merge in the future or to which it may make any transfer in order to enable a third party to continue part or all of its mission. Tango Addict’s Inc also reserves the right to release personal information to protect our systems or business, if we reasonably believe you to have initiated or participated in any illegal activity. In addition, please be aware that in certain circumstances, Tango Addict’s Inc may be obligated to release your personal information pursuant to judicial or other government subpoenas, warrants, or other orders.

Tango Addict’s Inc may maintain publicly accessible archives of our activities. For example, registering for one of our events, or answering a survey question may result in some of your information or photographs of you becoming part of our publicly accessible web site. Our “Who’s Coming” page will display, with your prior consent, your first name, the initial of your last name, and the city that you provide when you register for one of our events. Answers to our survey questions may be quoted on our web site without your name attributed to the quote.

Given the international scope of the sandiegotangofestival.com website, personal information may be visible to persons outside your country of residence, including to persons in countries that your own country’s privacy laws and regulations deem deficient in ensuring an adequate level of protection for such information. If you are unsure whether this Privacy Policy is in conflict with applicable local rules, you should not ask that your information not be shown on our web site; specifically during registration for one of our events. If you are located within the European Union, you should note that your information will be transferred to the United States, which is deemed by the European Union to have inadequate data protection. Nevertheless, in accordance with local laws implementing European Union Directive 95/46/EC of 24 October 1995 (“EU Privacy Directive”) on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, individuals located in countries outside of the United States of America who submit personal information do thereby consent to the general use of such information as provided in this Privacy Policy and to its transfer to and/or storage in the United States of America.

If you do not want your personal information collected and used by Tango Addict’s Inc, please do not visit the sandiegotangofestival.com web site or register for any of our event or sign-up for any of our email lists.

Access to and Accuracy of Personal Information

Tango Addict’s Inc is committed to keeping the personal information of our users accurate. All the information you have submitted to us can be verified and changed. In order to do this, please email us a request. We provide email list subscribers with online access to their own personal profiles, allowing them to update or delete information at any time. Certain areas of the sandiegotangofestival.com web site may limit access to specific individuals through the use of passwords or other personal identifiers; a password prompt is your indication that a protected resource is being accessed.

Security

Tango Addict’s Inc makes every effort to protect personal information for users of the web site, including using application firewalls, encryption using SSL certificates, and other security measures on its servers. No server, however, is 100% secure, and you should take this into account when submitting personal or confidential information about yourself on any web site, including this one. Much of the personal information is used in conjunction with services such as event registration, payment, and check-in, so some types of personal information such as your name, and email address may be visible to employees and volunteers for Tango Addict’s Inc over encrypted communication channels (such as https). Tango Addict’s Inc assumes no liability for the interception, alteration, or misuse of the information you provide.
