Seattle Repertory Theatre uses third-party cookies, including those of Capacity Interactive.

What happens when I visit an external website not related to Seattle Repertory Theatre's site?
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that Seattle Repertory Theatre is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our patrons to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by www.seattlerep.org and subsidiary sites.
How does Seattle Repertory Theatre protect your personal information?
This website takes every precaution to protect our patrons' information. When patrons submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line.
When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just 'surfing'. To learn more about SSL, follow this link www.verisign.com/site/ssl.html.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Finally, the servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment behind a locked door. If you have any questions about the security on our website or at Seattle Repertory Theatre, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I correct my information or opt out?
Correction/Updating Personal Information:
If a patron's personally identifiable information changes (such as your zip code), or if a patron no longer desires to be in our active solicitation, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user's personal data provided to us. To change any of your postal information, please contact Seattle Repertory Theatre's Box Office directly at (206) 443-2222 or toll free at (877) 900-9285.
Our patrons are given the opportunity to 'opt-out' of having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for the information. For example, our online ticket form has an 'opt-out' mechanism so users who donate to us, but do not want their information shared with other art organizations, can keep their information in-house only.
Users who no longer wish to receive our E-News may opt-out of receiving these communications by choosing 'unsubscribe' found in the E-Newsletter itself.
You may opt-out of Seattle Repertory Theatre’s SMS correspondence or Premium SMS Services by texting "STOP" to the shortcode 20222. Text "HELP" to 20222 for help or visit www.hmgf.org/t. Messaging and data rates may apply.
