This site is owned and operated by the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts (“ORDWAY”).

Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. At ORDWAY, we want to make your experience online satisfying and safe. Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand our policy and the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. Rest assured that the information you provide is safeguarded.

This privacy policy only applies to the website and not to any other website.  This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it. By using the website, you agree to the terms and conditions in this privacy policy.

What information the Ordway gathers and tracks

We gather two types of information about users:

1. Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. We collect this information to customize our features for individual visitors and to notify visitors about updates to our site and the ORDWAY shows/productions.

2. Information ORDWAY gathers through aggregated tracking: when you access the internet your computer is automatically assigned an IP address which is used by other computers and servers to communicate with you over the internet. We collect and log the IP address of all visitors to the website in order to determine which areas of our site users like and don’t like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. We collect this information in order to determine how to create the best experience for our visitors. To maintain your anonymity we will not associate your IP address with records containing the personal information you submit unless it is necessary to do so to enforce our legal rights or if required to do so by law enforcement authorities. We may track search terms entered in our Search function as one of many measures of what interests our users, but this tracking is never associated with an individual user.

Use of personal information

ORDWAY strictly protects the security of your personal information and honors your choices for its intended use. We disclose your information to no third parties unless it is specifically stated otherwise. We may use third party contractors to help us operate our business and the sites or administer activities on our behalf, and may share your personal information with these contractors for those limited purposes. We use your information solely to fulfill ORDWAY services and help us improve our website and offerings to you. Notwithstanding any other provision to the contrary, ORDWAY reserves the right to cooperate with local, state, and federal officials in any investigation relating to any purported illegal activity(ies) and, when required by law, regulation, legal process or government requests, to disclose any personal information furnished by you or collected by ORDWAY to law enforcement authorities. Your information may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which ORDWAY contract vendors may process and store data.  By using this site, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of the United States. ORDWAY requires its vendors to maintain the confidentiality and security of your information. 


Consistent with the Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent. If you believe that we might have collected or been sent information from a child under the age of 13, please contact us at as soon as possible.


We may place a text file called a “cookie” in the browser files of your computer. The cookie itself does not contain personal Information although it will enable us to relate your use of this site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided. But the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can’t read data off your hard drive or read cookie files created by other sites. ORDWAY uses cookies to track user traffic patterns (as described above). You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. If you’ve set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies, you will receive the warning message with each cookie. You do not need to have cookies turned on to use this site; however, it may help you to participate more actively in some features.
