This Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) tells you what information National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene (“NYTF,” “we” or “us”) collects as part of your interaction with the nytf.org domain, or any subdomain of this website (the “Website”) and how we use, share and protect that information. Unless you elect to purposefully provide us with your personally identifiable information during your visit, we do not collect personally identifiable information about you when you visit the Website.

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully to understand what we do with the information that we collect as part of your interaction with the Website, and please also read our Terms of Use  carefully to understand the terms and conditions governing your use of the Website. Please note that this Privacy Policy may change from time to time. Please check the Privacy Policy each time you visit the Website for the most current version.

This Privacy Policy concerns only the Website, and does not concern any other website, app or Internet-based services, including websites to which the Website may link or through which you may view NYTF content (including YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Stitcher and Apple Podcasts) (“Third-Party Sites”). We have no control over Third-Party Sites or their privacy policies or terms of use, and therefore we encourage you to review such privacy policies and terms of use prior to submitting any personally identifiable information to them.

To the extent you have any questions about, or complaints concerning, this Privacy Policy please contact us at members@nytf.org.

The Types of Information We Collect from You Via the Website

When you browse this Website, we do not collect information about you unless you affirmatively provide it to us. This means that, unless you register through the Website, we will not know your name, email address, or any other information about you just because you browse the Website.

We do collect non-personally identifiable information when you visit our Website, such as the number of uses, pages accessed, the referring page that linked you to us and the data and time of visits, your browser usage, and your actions including time spent on and locations visited within the Website. NYTF collects this information for statistical purposes, and analysis of this information allows us to provide you with improved services when you revisit our Website. We may use and disclose aggregated, non-personally identifying information collected through the Website as part of our process of constantly improving our Website.

If you choose to register to become a customer, member or donor, we may ask you for certain of your personally identifiable information including your name, email address, password, phone number, personal address, billing information, credit card number, family information, employment information or preferences that you may have related to NYTF’s products and services, in connection with the registration process (collectively, “Registration Information”). When you submit this Registration Information, we collect and store it. However, your credit card information is processed by third-party processors and we do not store your credit card information. From time to time we may request other information to provide you with other benefits of the Website. In such instances, you will be given the opportunity to provide or to decline to provide that information. All information will only be collected through reasonable means.

If you chose to participate in optional surveys or submit a request for information to us, we may collect the information you choose to submit to us. While you can choose not to provide us with any information or to provide only limited information, we may not be in a position to respond to your request.

We do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13.

How We Use Personally Identifiable Information We Collect from You Via the Website

We do not collect personally identifiable information through the Website, other than the Registration Information for users that choose to provide such information.

As a non-profit dedicated to using the arts as a vehicle to educate youth and adults about Jewish heritage through the presentation of plays, musicals, concerts, lectures, interactive educational workshops and community-building activities in English and Yiddish, with English and Russian supertitles accompanying performances, NYTF may use your personally identifiable information to send you information about our upcoming events or those of our partners, solicit donations for itself or its partners, acknowledge your contributions to NYTF (including in certain public forums), and inform you about the products and services offered by our partners and sponsors. We may also occasionally may share certain Registration Information with certain of our partners, such as the Museum of Jewish Heritage, where we are in residence.

Please note that the Registration Information you provide us through the Website may be disclosed or processed by third parties under contract with us or with whom we partner. When your Registration Information is submitted to these third parties, we will require those third parties to exercise reasonable care to protect your information and restrict the use of your information to the purposes for which it was provided. We also may share Registration Information with third-party vendors and web developers who assist us in performing internal functions necessary to operate our business, including but not limited to development and maintenance of the Website. We require our third party vendors and our partners to keep such information confidential and to only use the information as necessary and for the purpose it was provided.

In addition, we reserve the right to use your Registration Information and other non-personally identifiable information to better understand the behavior and preferences of uses of the Website, to troubleshoot technical problems, to enforce this Privacy Policy and to ensure proper functioning of and to help improve the Website.

Like many other websites, Google Analytics and other features are integrated into the Website that may use “cookies.” “Cookies” are text files sent from our server and stored by your web browser on the hard drive of your computer (including tablets and smart phones). Cookies allow us to personalize and save preferences. Cookies can be used to collect anonymous data and serve the user with push notifications, and may be used to communicate with Twitter, Facebook or other Third-Party Sites in connection with the “Share” or “like” buttons for these Third-Party Sites. Cookies assist us in evaluation of site usage. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can generally configure your browser to prevent the acceptance of cookies.

We reserve the right to disclose any content, records or electronic communication of any kind (including without limitation Registration Information or the content of any message received from you): (i) to satisfy any law, regulation, or government request; (ii) if such disclosure is necessary to our business; or (iii) to protect the rights property or safety of anyone, including NYTF or its users, sponsors, suppliers, providers, licensors or merchants, which may include the enforcement of the Terms of Use, this Privacy Policy or any other policies or agreements. We also reserve the right to reject any request for additional information from you or any other user.

If you do not want us to use your Registration Information to send you information about products and services offered by us or our partners, you may opt-out of such uses by notifying us in accordance with Section D of this Privacy Policy. Please note that opting-out will not prevent your information from being used for non-marketing purposes.

We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children.

Storage And Security.

Website data (including Registration Information) is transferred to and stored on servers operated and processed by NYTF or its service providers. By submitting your information to NYTF, you acknowledge that you fully understand and agree to this collection, transfer, storing and processing.

We have implemented technical, administrative and physical security measures in an effort to safeguard the privacy of your information from unauthorized access or improper use. From time to time, we will review our security procedures in order to consider appropriate new technology and methods to enhance our security procedures as new technology becomes available. However, you acknowledge and agree that despite our best efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and your information may still be accessed and used by others without authorization in the event of a security breach.

Updating Your Information And Opt-Out Choices.

NYTF does not take affirmative steps to confirm the accuracy of the information you provide us. You may request that your account be removed from our database by sending us a request via email to members@nytf.org, by postal mail to: National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene, Edmond J. Safra Plaza, 36 Battery Place, New York, NY 10280 or by calling our office at 212-213-2120.

You acknowledge that, when you request to delete your account for the Website, your data may be permanently expunged from our primary production servers such that further access to your account may not be possible. We may also disconnect any connection we had established to your account information and delete all account credentials. However, portions of your data may remain on our production servers indefinitely, including on backup servers or media. We reserve the right to use any aggregated or anonymous data derived from or incorporating your information.

We will only send communications relating to our products or services or those of our partners to the email addresses on file. You also may unsubscribe from emails with information from NYTF by clicking on the unsubscribe links in those emails. If NYTF receives an opt-out or unsubscribe request from you, NYTF thereafter will not contact you directly with any information relating to the advertising of its products or services or those of its partners.

Business Transfers.

In the event that NYTF is consolidated or merged with a third party entity, we reserve the right to transfer or assign all of the information we have collected from you via our Website in connection with such merger, acquisition, sale or other change of control. In the event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors’ rights generally, we may not be able to control how your information is treated, transferred or used.

Privacy Policy Changes.

By using the Website, you agree to let us collect and use information per this Privacy Policy. In the future, we may change this Privacy Policy; we will post changes at this URL and note the effective date so that you are always aware of what information we collect and how we use it. If we decide to change our privacy practices, all changes will be reflected at this URL and the effective date will be posted so that you will always know what information we gather, how we might use information and whether we will disclose it to anyone. If we materially change our practices regarding collection or use of your information, your information will continue to be governed by the policy under which it was collected unless you have been provided notice, and have not objected to, this change.

Governing Law
These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of New York without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule (whether of the State of New York or any other jurisdiction) that would apply the laws of another jurisdiction.

Dispute Resolution
Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or relating to the use of the Website or these Terms, including with respect to their validity, binding effect, interpretation, or the performance, breach or termination thereof (each a “Dispute”), shall be resolved by final and binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules in effect at the time (the “Rules”), except as modified herein. The Rule’s Expedited Procedures shall not apply.

There shall be a single arbitrator, who shall be jointly appointed by claimant and respondent within thirty (30) calendar days of receipt by respondent of a copy of the notice of arbitration. If claimant and respondent fail to appoint an arbitrator within the time period specified herein, such arbitrator shall be appointed in accordance with the Rules.

The seat of the arbitration shall be New York, New York.

The language of the arbitration shall be English.

By agreeing to arbitration, the parties do not intend to deprive any court of its jurisdiction to issue a pre-arbitral injunction, pre-arbitral attachment or other order in aid of arbitration. In any such action, each of the parties irrevocably and unconditionally (i) consents and submits to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the Courts of the State of New York and the Federal Courts of the United States of America located within the County of Manhattan (the “New York Courts”); and (ii) waives, to the fullest extent it may effectively do so, any objection, including any objection to the laying of venue or based on the grounds of forum non conveniens or any right of objection to jurisdiction on account of its place of incorporation or domicile, which it may now or hereafter have to the bringing of any such action or proceeding in any New York Court.

Without prejudice to such provisional remedies as may be available under the jurisdiction of any court, the arbitrator shall have full authority to grant provisional remedies and to direct the parties to request that any court modify or vacate any temporary or preliminary relief issued by such court, and to award damages for the failure of any party to respect the arbitrator’s orders to that effect.

The award rendered by the arbitrator shall be in writing and shall briefly state the findings of fact and conclusions of law on which it is based, and shall be admissible in any judicial proceeding to confirm, correct or vacate the award. The award of the arbitrator shall be final and binding upon the parties. Judgment on the award may be entered and the award may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction.

YOU AND NYTF AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. Unless both you and NYTF agree, no arbitrator or judge may consolidate more than one person’s claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.

Waiver and Severability
No waiver by NYTF of any term or condition set out in these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of NYTF to assert a right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

If any provision of these Terms is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of these Terms will continue in full force and effect.

Entire Agreement
These Terms and our Privacy Policy constitute the sole and entire agreement between you and NYTF regarding the Website and supersede all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations, and warranties, both written and oral, regarding the Website.

Interpretation
For purposes of these Terms, the word “including” or any variation thereof means “including, without limitation” and shall not be construed to limit any general statement that it follows to the specific or similar items or matters immediately following it.
