INFORMATION YOU KNOWINGLY GIVE TO US
We receive and may store any personal information you actively send us or enter on our web site. You provide such information when you sign up for our mailing lists or newsletter distribution lists or send us e-mails. You may also enter personal information when you purchase tickets to a Burning Man Project event or submit a donation.

INFORMATION THAT IS AUTOMATICALLY COLLECTED BY OUR SYSTEM
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us through the internet.

In addition, like many other web sites, we automatically log certain technical information about your visit, like IP (internet protocol) addresses, browser type, ISP (internet service provider), referring and exit pages. We compile and analyze this information statistically and diagnostically in order to administer the web site, analyze usage trends, and keep up the site’s technical performances. This information may also help us understand our user base demographically, but we do not use this information to identify individual users.

WHAT WE DO WITH YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We use the personal information that we receive to operate the web site and support the Burning Man community. We do not rent, sell, or share your personal information with any other entity, except when:

* We have your permission; or
* We respond to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal process; or when we must exercise our legal rights, protect our property, defend against legal claims, or otherwise comply with the law, or
* We believe it is appropriate in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected illegal activities, fraud, threats to personal safety, or violation of this web site’s terms of use
* Burning Man Project and/ or the Black Rock Arts Foundation or other named affiliate nonprofits may at times contact you at your email address to keep you informed about their local events and other Burning Man Project related opportunities. Should you not want to receive such information, you will find details about how to opt out the first time you are contacted.

In the unlikely event that the Burning Man Project is acquired or transferred, or changes entity status, the personal information will be among the transferred assets but will remain subject to any existing privacy policy.

CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECURITY
The only people who have access to personal information collected on this web site are employees who have a need to know and who are bound by nondisclosure agreements and this privacy policy. We have physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the personal information that we store.

In general, we cannot guarantee your anonymity whenever you interact with our web site. You might want to be aware of a number of other companies and web sites that offer utilities designed to help you visit web sites anonymously, but we cannot make any representation about their effectiveness or functionality with our web site.

Also, please note that the burningmanproject.org website may contain links to third Party web sites. These third party websites may send their own cookies to collect data and solicit personal information. Therefore, we cannot guarantee your privacy when visiting such third sites, nor the accuracy or acceptability of any services provided by such third parties.
