Privacy Policy 

City Of Natchitoches Festivals, Inc. (“CONF” or “we” or “us”) recognizes that you care how information about you is collected and used. We have created this Privacy Policy to inform you of our information collection, use, and sharing practices. This Privacy Policy explains CONF’s collection and use of information that may identify you and covers information collected through its websites or any other CONF sites that link to this Privacy Policy (the “Sites”), and any functionality or services provided through the Sites (the “Resources”). It is our policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect, subject to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use of the Site (“Terms of Use”), as either or both may be amended from time to time. In addition, various Resources of CONF may include different terms or policies, and you should review any such terms and policies carefully, as they will control your use of that Resource. Terms not defined in this Privacy Policy have the meanings ascribed them in the Terms of Use. By utilizing the Sites or accessing one or more Resources, individuals agree to the following terms and conditions as final and binding.

 

Types of Information We Collect

 

We collect the following information about you:

 

Personal Information. This is information that directly or indirectly identifies you, such as your name, email address, or other identifying information about you, or that would, when combined with other information you provide or that is broadly available, be likely to identify you.

 

Other Information. Other Information is information that, by itself, does not individually identify you, such as browser type, operating system, technical data, and usage. We may link together different types of Other Information or link Other Information to Personal Information.

 

Individuals may interact with CONF in ways that require CONF to gather Personal Information. The amount and type of information that CONF gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, CONF may request that visitors who make an appointment to speak with us provide us their name and contact information. In each case, CONF collects such information only insofar as is legal and appropriate. If you do not wish for CONF to collect any information about you, you can simply not utilize the Site or otherwise supply Personal Information. Your choice not to provide information may, however, prevent you from using certain Resources or engaging in certain activities on the Sites.

 

Like most website operators, CONF collects non-Personal Information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available to operators, like the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. CONF may use this information for a number of purposes including, for example, to better understand how CONF visitors use its website. The purposes for collecting and using this data may change from time to time at CONF’s discretion, and CONF may release non-Personal Information in the aggregate. By utilizing the Site, you agree to such use.

Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

 

In addition, we use information collected from cookies and other technologies like pixel tags and web beacons (oftencalled “smart cookies”) to improve the functionality of the Sites to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services. A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Smart cookies are images embedded in a webpage or e-mail for the purpose of measuring and analyzing usage and activity. CONF uses cookies to help CONF identify and track visitors, their usage of the Sites, and their access preferences. We may use your Personal Information to see which web pages you visit at our websites, which website you visited before coming to our website, and where you go after you leave our website. We can then develop statistics that help us understand how our visitors use our websites and how to improve them. CONF visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using the CONF websites; provided, however, that CONF disclaims, and you hereby waive, any claim or liability that may arise due to your partial or incomplete access to the content of any of the CONF websites as a result thereof.

 

We also use cookies provided by Google Analytics or other third parties to help us measure how visitors use the Sites. The information collected is used for a variety of purposes, including, but not limited to, site traffic reporting, unique visitor counts, and content optimization. Although Google Analytics logs the information coming from the Sites on our behalf, we control how the data may and may not be used. If you do not want to help us learn how to improve the Sites, you can opt-out of this website analysis tool by clicking: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

 

Advertisements

 

Advertisements appearing on any of the Sites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by CONF and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

 

How We Share Information We Collect

 

As part of the use of your information for the above purposes, we may disclose your Personal Information or Other Information to our vendors and other contractors who perform various functions on our behalf. 

 

We also may provide Personal Information to our affiliates or other trusted businesses or persons who provide services to you or us, based on our instructions and in compliance with our Privacy Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures.

 

If CONF or any of our affiliates is involved in a merger, acquisition, asset sale, joint venture or other, similar transaction, we will continue to ensure the confidentiality of any Personal Information. We may transfer or allow access to Personal Information as part of the transaction and in review or preparation for it as described below under “Business Transfers“. 

 

We also may provide information about you to other third parties with your consent or for one of the purposes above, e.g., following a subpoena or other legal process or to a regulatory agency in order to protect against fraud or investigate a criminal or civil matter or when CONF believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect CONF rights and interests, third parties, or the public at large.

 

How We Protect Your Information

 

CONF discloses Personal Information to those of its employees, contractors, agents and affiliated organizations that need to know that information in order to process it on CONF behalf or to provide services. Some of those employees, contractors, agents and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your state, province or country. By using the Site or providing us information, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. CONF will not rent or sell potential Personal Information to anyone. 

 

If you are a registered user of one or more Resources or have supplied your email address, you agree that in addition to any Resources you may have solicited or requested, CONF may further send you emails to provide you with information, to inform you of new products, to solicit your feedback, or to keep you up to date on CONF and its products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. You may choose not to receive marketing email communications from us by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in our marketing emails. You also may ask us not to send you other marketing communications by contacting us as specified in the “Contact Us“ section below, and we will honor your request. 

 

We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, we may not immediately delete residual copies of Personal Information that is on our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems. If you believe that Personal Information we maintain about you is inaccurate, subject to applicable law, you may have the right to request that we correct or amend the information by contacting us as indicated below. 

 

CONF undertakes commercially reasonable efforts to guard against unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of Personal Information, which efforts you agree are sufficient, adequate and complete. In some cases, we cannot control, and are not responsible for, information that is shared about you. For example:

 

  • Information you share. The Sites or other Resources may let you share information with others. Remember that when you share information publicly, it may be indexable by search engines or otherwise further viewed or disclosed. 

  • Social Media Accounts. CONF maintains various social network accounts such as Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn. Please note that comments and information that you leave in such settings are likely to be broadly visible and may not be controlled by CONF. We are therefore not responsible for any information or messages you leave in such settings or for how such information may be used by others.

  • Accessing and updating your Personal Information. If you provide us with information in order to access or receive Resources, we may or may not be able to provide you with access to your Personal Information. If information that we control about you is incorrect, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it (unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes). When updating your Personal Information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request.

 

Business Transfers

 

In the event (I) CONF engages in one more asset sales or purchases, (ii) CONF is acquired, (iii) CONF engages in one or more business combinations, mergers or acquisitions, (iv) substantially all of CONF assets are acquired, or (v) CONF is subject to an event of bankruptcy, you acknowledge and agree that user information comprises an asset of CONF and that the same is subject to assignment, transfer and/or acquisition by a third party. Accordingly, and notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Privacy Policy, you acknowledge and agree that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of CONF may continue to subsequently use your Personal Information, and that such subsequent use may not be consistent with this Privacy Policy.

 

Third Party Links

 

The Sites may contain links to webpages or tools operated by parties other than CONF. We do not control such websites or tools and are not responsible for their contents or the privacy policies or other practices of such websites or service providers. Our inclusion of links to an outside website or tool does not imply any endorsement of the material on such websites or tools or any association with their operators. Further, it is up to you to take precautions to ensure that whatever links you select or software you download (whether from an Electronic Platform or other websites) is free of such items as viruses, worms, trojan horses, defects and other items of a destructive nature. These websites and services may have their own privacy policies, which you will be subject to upon accessing the third party’s website. We strongly recommend you review the third party’s terms and policies.

 

Minors

 

The Sites are not intended for use by minors.  We do not intentionally gather Personal Information about individuals who are under the age of 13.  If a minor has provided us with Personal Information, a parent or guardian of that minor may contact us to have the information deleted from our records. If you believe that we might have any information from a minor under age 13, please contact us at NatchJazzFest20@Gmail.Com. If we learn that we have inadvertently collected the Personal Information of a minor under 13, or equivalent minimum age depending on jurisdiction, we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.  

 

Do Not Track

 

Some browsers have a “Do Not Track” feature that lets you tell websites and online services that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. Such browser features and industry standards are not uniform, so our websites and online services do not respond to those signals.

 

Use Outside the United States and Storage and Transfer

 

The Site and Resources are intended for residents of the United States only. Information we maintain may be stored both within and outside of the United States. If you live outside of the United States, you understand and agree that we may transfer your information to the United States. This site is subject to U.S. laws, which may not afford the same level of protection as those in your country. Your use of our Site or Resources or provision of any information constitutes your consent to the transfer, processing, usage, sharing, and storage of your information in the U.S. and other jurisdictions as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

 

Information for California Residents 

 

California residents are entitled to contact us to request information about whether we have disclosed Personal Information to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. We do not share Personal Information with third parties for their own marketing purposes, however.  California customers may request further information about our compliance with this law by e-mailing us at the address listed in the “Contact Us” section. CONF is not subject to the California Consumer Privacy Act as a “business” and does not respond to requests under the Act.
