Some additional pertinent information may be required (e.g. – birth date for students under the age of 18). Some children’s courses will also require information such as emergency contact, rising grade, age, etc. When payment is made by credit card we also collect information on type of card, card number, and expiration date.
How We Use InformationWe use the information you provide to complete your request (i.e. – inclusion in our database to receive catalogs and other information; registering and paying for a membership; registering and paying for art courses).
We use your contact information to notify you of a course change or cancellation. Should the information provided be invalid, we are not responsible for failure to contact you in the event of a course change/cancellation. Contact information is provided to your instructor with their attendance roster so they may contact you with information regarding the course for which you are enrolled.
Your contact information is added to our database to ensure that you receive a copy of our paper catalog by mail, and to send email confirmation receipts with registration information. Recruitment emails will also be sent to you on occasion to notify you of new/added courses, course updates, or to bolster enrollment. If you would like to be removed from this email list, please contact the registration office at 770-394-3447, ext 0.
