Web browser cookies

The site may use “cookies” to enhance the user experience. A user’s web browser places cookies on their hard drive for record-keeping purposes and sometimes to track information about the user. Users may choose to set their browser to refuse cookies, or to alert them when cookies are being sent. If they do so, note that some parts of the site may not function properly.

Information protection

Harbison Theatre at Midlands Technical College adopts appropriate data collection, storage, and processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction or personally identifiable information (PII), as well as usernames and passwords, transaction information, and any additional sensitive data stored on or delivered through the site.

Sharing of personal information

Under no circumstances will Harbison Theatre at Midlands Technical College sell, trade, or rent personally identifiable information (PII) to outside parties. The theatre does reserve the right, however, to share aggregated demographic information not linked to any personally identifiable information regarding site visitors and users with business partners, trusted affiliates, and advertisers for the purposes outlined above.

The theatre reserves the right to share this information with its third-party service providers that help with routine operations and/or that administer activities on the theatre’s behalf, such as distributing newsletters, surveys, and other digital and print communications materials. The theatre may also share information with third parties for limited purposes where and when the user has explicitly agreed to have this data shared.

While there are laws in the state of South Carolina that permit citizens to access select records and other documents and pieces of information possessed by a government agency, there are certain legal restrictions that impede unfettered access to these materials, and to private or personal materials that are not a matter of public record or interest. Information collected from users of the theatre website, similarly to information collected during in-person visits to a government office, may be subject to inspection and copying by the public, unless an exemption in State or Federal law restricts interested parties from doing so.

In the event that there is a conflict between this privacy policy and a State or Federal law governing the disclosure of public records, the applicable law shall control. The Family Privacy Protection Act of 2002 prohibits persons or private entities from using personal information obtained from State agencies for commercial solicitation purposes. A person or persons that knowingly violate this prohibition is/are guilty of a misdemeanor, and is/are subject to the penalties specified in SC Code Ann. Section 30-2-50(D).
