General
Donna Olkowski recognizes that the protection of privacy is a major concern. This page acknowledges that content will be acquired through this website, including social media (collectively associated with personal and public accounts maintained or shared with “Donna Olkowski”), and details how it may be shared and protected.

During such activities, we may collect personal information that is not publicly available and identifies your name, mailing address, email address, and phone number.

Disclosure of Information
In order for you to receive certain benefits, you may first be asked to supply certain information, such as your email address. You will be asked for certain information so that we reply to you with information to suit your needs. You will be asked for your name, email address, zip code, and other information specified. You may be asked to tell us a little about your interests. This information is used to deliver a personalized reply and better serve your needs.

Cookies
This is a type of data in aggregate form and does not identify you personally. Cookies receive and store certain types of information when you interact with our website through your computer or mobile device. This information (including pages you visit on our site, the web address you came from, the type of browser/device/hardware you are using, or your search terms and IP-based geographic location) helps us customize your website experience.

We may use information gathered through the website, mobile applications, and social media to: (i) fulfill and manage requests for information; (ii) deliver messages, emails, mobile messages, and phone communications; (iii) send communications and other information (i.e., details regarding concerts, events, rehearsal schedules); and (iv) improve the effectiveness of our website.

Sharing of Information
We will not sell or otherwise share personally identifying information with outside people or nonaffiliated companies, except for those purposes described above or as required by law. We may share gathered information with certain partners to provide requested services that we do not have the availability to provide directly (i.e., if interested in music lessons and you are outside our location radius, we may propose a teacher closer to your location).

We may disclose specific information upon governmental request, in response to a court order, when required by law, or to protect our or others’ rights, property, or safety (i.e., identifying an instrument’s description if said instrument goes missing). We do not provide information for marketing or commercial purposes.

Parents should always supervise their children while online. Our website is not designed nor intended to collect personal information from children under the age of 13. So that we may comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, we ask that children under the age of 13 not provide any personal information on this website. If a child under the age of 13 has provided us with personal information, we ask that a parent or guardian contact us.
