Information shared with third parties

Orlando Shakes does not share, sell, or rent email addresses. We do share postal mailing lists with other area arts organizations through a third-party vendor. Orlando Shakes approves all mailings sent by third parties. Orlando Shakes may provide your name and address or phone number to third parties whose products we believe may be of interest to you (although we do not share any other information about you, the selection criteria may result in the third party being able to identify your relationship with Orlando Shakes in a broad manner, i.e., that you are a subscriber or donor, or may have attended a particular production). You can request at anytime that we do not share your name and address or phone numbers with such third parties. To opt out of receiving third party mailings, you
must contact the Box Office. Orlando Shakes does not monitor or control the privacy policies of third parties.

Certain performances at Orlando Shakes are produced or presented by third parties. When you make a purchase to a performance presented or produced by one of these third-party organizations, Orlando Shakes will provide them with the information regarding your purchase. This information may include,
but shall not be limited to, your name, address, telephone number and email address, as well as details of your purchase, which may include, but shall not be limited to, the date you purchased your tickets, any offer you responded to, the locations of your seats, and the dollar amount of your transaction.

Security of your information

When you purchase a ticket, buy a membership or make a donation online, we need to obtain your credit card number, expiration date, card identification number and billing address. Our site has security measures in place intended to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. This information is encrypted for transmission and stored securely at Orlando Shakes. We use industry-standard encryption to contribute to the security of the personal information you provide.


We strive to protect your personal information; however, Orlando Shakes cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. Although we use security that we believe to be appropriate to protect your personal information, we do not guarantee that our security precautions will protect against, and we expressly disclaim any liability for, any loss, misuse, or alteration of your personal information.
