Your privacy is of paramount importance to us
    Third Street Music School Settlement recognizes the importance of protecting the personal information it obtains from its donors and friends. A strict policy of confidentiality prohibits the disclosure or exchange of any such personal information with third parties.

    Collection and use of information on this Web site
    Third Street's website does not set cookies and it does not collect IP addresses. No personal information is collected. The School does not keep or use the e-mail addresses of those who contact the School via its general e-mail address, (posted on this website) except at the request of the e-mailer.

    What information Third Street collects
    At a minimum, the School collects names and addresses. It keeps additional information such as home phone and e-mail address, business address, and business phone and e-mail address, if such information is offered voluntarily.

    How Third Street obtains personal information
    All personal information is gathered on a voluntary basis. The vast majority of information is collected directly from individuals. Some names and addresses of potential individual donors are provided to the School by established individual donors.

    All parents and guardians of minors who enroll at Third Street, and all adult students, voluntarily provide their personal information to the School when they register. Individuals who attend or purchase tickets to Third Street's annual luncheon or other public and fund-raising events may provide contact information of prospective supporters for the School's use. 

    In addition, from time to time, Third Street purchases lists of the names and addresses of individuals who may be interested in its work. These lists are used only for mailings of announcements of Third Street's free public concerts. They are not used to solicit donations, and they are not shared with third parties.

    How Third Street uses personal information
    Third Street mails annual fund-raising appeals via USPS to all parents, guardians, adult students who are currently registered at the School, as well as to established individual donors and others whose personal information may have been provided in connection with their attendance at a Third Street event. These individuals also receive notices of the School's free public events, including concerts and master classes by students, faculty and guest artists.

    In addition, some of these individuals receive occasional invitations to fund-raising events. Each year, as a general rule, these events include one anniversary luncheon (the School's major annual fund-raiser) and one or two smaller fund-raising events.
