Chorus America ("CA") is a nonprofit organization.  The mission of CA is to build a dynamic and inclusive choral community so that more people are transformed by the beauty and power of choral singing. CA offers a wide range of articles, templates, programs, and services to strengthen choruses throughout the US and Canada.

CA respects your concerns about privacy and values the relationship we have with you.  This Privacy Policy describes the types of information we collect on www.chorusamerica.org, how we may use that information and with whom we may share it. This Privacy Policy also describes the measures we take to protect the security of the information and how you can reach us to update your contact information, remove your name from our mailing lists, or ask questions you may have regarding our online privacy practices.

This Privacy Policy explains the following:

The Information We May Collect

While using our website, you do not have to identify yourself or divulge personal information. We do not collect personally identifiable information about you on this site without your knowledge, and all such information is collected directly from you. CA may periodically ask you to provide information such as your name, email address, and other information about you to fully access the Services of the Site. You are under no obligation to provide us with this information.

How CA Protects Your Information

We maintain administrative, technical, and physical safeguards for this website to protect against unauthorized disclosure, use, alteration or destruction of the information you provide on the site. However, no data transmissions over the Internet or via wireless networks can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make efforts to ensure security on our systems.

How CA Uses the Information You Provide

CA uses the information we collect from you in an effort to send you news and information about CA, our programs and services, and for other purposes. We may provide this information to our contractors and successors, and from time to time we share or rent mailing addresses to member organizations; however, we will not sell, rent, trade, lend, or otherwise share your personal information with nonmember organizations or individuals for commercial purposes. Finally, we may disclose information when required by law or when we have a good faith belief that release is appropriate to protect our rights or property, or to protect our donors and supporters from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful conduct.

We restrict access to personal information to CA employees, contractors, and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop, or improve the Services and Site. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.

Information on Children's Privacy

We believe every precaution must be taken to protect children online. CA does not knowingly ask children 13 and under for any information. Visitors who are 13 or under should ask a parent or legal guardian for assistance when using www.chorusamerica.org and should not submit any personally identifiable information.
