We collect visitors’ contact information (such as email address), unique identifiers (such as name and interests), and in some cases, financial information (such as account or credit card numbers). Contact information from the order form is used to send confirmations and information about our organization.
  • Our online surveys may ask visitors for contact information (such as email address), unique identifiers (such as name), and demographic information (such as zip code, age, or business type).
  • Demographic and profile data is also collected at our site. We use this data to tailor our visitors’ experience at our site, showing them content that we think they might be interested in, and displaying the content according to their preferences.

In all of the cases above, Web site visitors’ contact information is used to contact the visitor when necessary and is shared with The Kansas City Young Audiences and other organizations that may want to contact our visitors. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below. Financial information that is collected is used to check the users' qualifications for registration and to bill the user for products and services and donations. Unique identifiers (such as names) are collected to verify the user's identity and for use as account identifiers in our record system.
