Our Commitment to Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. This privacy policy, which is a part of our overall Terms of Use, is intended to provide you with information about how we collect, store, and use personally identifiable information obtained through our website. To make this notice easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable information may be requested.

Name, mailing address, email address, phone number and payment information such as the information we need to bill your Credit or Debit Card for orders you place via The Kentucky Center’s website.

On some pages, you can submit information about other people. For example, if you order a gift online and want it sent directly to the recipient, you will need to submit the recipient's address. In this circumstance, in addition to the information described above that we will collect on you, we may collect the following types of additional information on the recipient:

Name, mailing address, email address, and phone number.

We need certain information in order to register you as a unique user and let you access personalized services; however, other requested information is optional and can be provided at your discretion. For example, from time to time we may post on-line surveys on our website, in which we seek to collect information from you regarding your personal preferences as to the events and other products and services offered by The Kentucky Center, and other relevant information.

Like most websites, The Kentucky Center’s website uses “cookies”. A cookie is a text file, invoked by standard browser software, that we place on your hard drive to enable our systems to, among other things, recognize your browser, track transactions, and allow you to navigate our website without having to re-enter information.

The Way We Use Information


In general, personally identifiable information collected through this website may be used by The Kentucky Center to allow purchasing and shipping of tickets, subscriptions, memberships and/or merchandise, communicate with you, register you as a user, inform you of upcoming events, request your support through donations, enable you to participate in special promotions, allow you to navigate the website without having to re-enter information, develop, maintain, and improve our products and services, or administer or website. We may make personally identifiable information available to other select organizations, including but not limited to, resident arts companies, visiting performers, arts organizations, affiliated organizations, agents working on our behalf, and companies or organizations with whom we have a contractual or sponsor relationship. We may also provide aggregated data to these and other organizations. We may use the information we collect for institutional research. Although we may make reasonable inquiries to determine that such other organizations maintain website privacy policies comparable to ours, we are not responsible for the enforcement of such policies.

We do not share payment information such as debit or credit card information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.

The Kentucky Center's designated Copyright Agent to receive notifications of claimed infringement is: Kentucky Center for the Arts Legal Department, email: legal@kentuckycenter.org. For clarity, only DMCA notices should go to the Copyright Agent; any other feedback, comments, requests for technical support, and other communications should be directed to The Kentucky Center’s customer service through http://www.kentuckycenter.org/contactus. You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements listed above, your DMCA notice may not be valid.

If you believe that any content or other submission that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner's agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the content in your user submission, you may send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent: (1) your physical or electronic signature; (2) identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled; (3) a statement that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content; and (4) your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court in Louisville, Kentucky, and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement. If a counter-notice is received by the Copyright Agent, The Kentucky Center may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member or user, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at The Kentucky Center’s sole discretion.
