Website Privacy Policy


The Walnut Street Theatre recognizes the importance of protecting the privacy of our online visitors. It is our intent to balance our legitimate business interests in collecting and using information received from and about you with your reasonable expectations of privacy. The following is the way we handle information learned about you from your visits to our website.

Collective Data

Like most other websites, www.WalnutStreetTheatre.org deposits certain bits of information called “cookies” in a visitor's computer. Cookies are sent back only to the website that deposited them when a visitor returns to that site. Cookies can tell us how and when pages in a website are visited and by how many people. This technology does not collect personal, identifiable information; the information collected is in an aggregate, non-identifiable form. We hope to use the information we collect through this technology to improve our site.

Personally Identifiable Information

The Walnut Street Theatre collects personally identifiable information including names, postal addresses, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and preferences only when that information is provided voluntarily by a website visitor. SSL (secure socket layer) encryption is then used to protect this personal information. We reserve the right to contact you periodically, by any and all means you provide to us, with special offers, updated information, organizational news or new services. You reserve the right to refuse this information by contacting us directly.

We do not sell or share email addresses we collect on this website with outside or constituent organizations without explicit permission to do so from you. Users who no longer wish to receive our promotional emails may opt-out of receiving these communications by emailing us at info@walnutstreettheatre.org using “Unsubscribe” in the subject line.

Financial Information

The Walnut Street Theatre places a high priority on protecting any personal financial information that you provide. When you enroll in classes, purchase works of art, or become a member online, we use your credit card information only to process your payment and will not use it for marketing purposes. Credit card information is transmitted through but is not stored on a web-enabled server. This information is stored offline for our records, but we will never share this information with third parties.

Security Used

We store all user information in secure databases protected via a variety of access controls. Access controls include: password protection, electronic firewalls and data encryption. SSL encryption is used to protect all personal and financial information, and credit card information is not stored on a web-enabled server. This data is accessed only for purposes specified in this privacy policy.

Links to Other Sites

As a resource to our visitors, The Walnut Street Theatre may provide links to other websites. We try to carefully choose websites that we believe are useful and meet our high standards. However, because websites can change so quickly, we cannot guarantee the standards of every website link we provide or be responsible for the content of these sites.
