Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy covers Dance/USA's treatment of personally identifiable information that Dance/USA collects when you join Dance/USA as a member, make a contribution to Dance/USA, register for an event or conference, or sign up for any of our mailing lists, listservs, or when you visit DanceUSA.org.

Information Collection and Use

DanceUSA.org will only collect personal information which you knowingly provide by purchasing merchandise or publications, registering for a conference or other event on the site, becoming a Dance/USA member, making a contribution, or some other voluntary action. If you provide personal information, we will use it to respond to your inquiry, answer your question, and fulfill your order as you specify. We may also mail you information about Dance/USA programs, activities, membership and support opportunities, product updates, and special events. From time to time, you may also receive information on opportunities or offers from organizations outside of Dance/USA. If at any time you do not wish to receive information on these opportunities and related offers, simply call 202.833.1717 to let us know.

We will not provide your email address to anyone outside of Dance/USA membership without your permission. With your permission, you may receive information about programs, activities, membership and support opportunities, product updates and special events from Dance/USA, our members, our partners, affiliates, and sponsors. When you receive any email, you will always have the option to decline future electronic communication.

DanceUSA.org also automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address and the pages you visit. Dance/USA uses this information to assess which areas of danceusa.org are most and least frequently used in order to plan future upgrades to the site.

Secure Ordering Online

Your online credit card transactions are secure with DanceUSA.org. We use Secure Socket Layering (SSL), the industry-standard encryption technology (128-bit encryption) that ensures safe Internet transmission of your personal information. Typically, your browser will provide an indication that you are entering a secure area (e.g. an icon on the browser window; a pop-up message on your monitor or an "https" in the URL indicator on the browser). A credit card transaction on our website is as safe as it is by phone, mail, or in person. If you prefer to order by phone, please call 202.833.1717. Our staff is available from 9:30am - 5:30pm EST, Monday-Friday to take your order.
