Thank you for visiting the Durango Creative District website and for reviewing our website Privacy Policy. This policy addresses the Durango Creative District's standardized process for access to and for the collection, storage, use, transfer, and security of information including personally identifiable information that may be obtained through use of the Durango Creative District's website. We may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time and without notice. Please review it periodically. By accessing our website, you acknowledge the terms and conditions expressed herein.

This Privacy Policy covers the following topics:

Collection and Use of Personally Identifiable Information

Contact Information

Personally identifiable information is information about an individual that could reasonably be used to identify that individual. Examples of personal information include an individual’s first and last name, residential address, telephone number, and email address.

The Durango Creative District fully supports the protection of individual privacy and minimizes the collection of personally identifiable information to the least amount of information required to complete a particular transaction. This policy extends to the collection of all personally identifiable information, regardless of the source or the medium. The Durango Creative District does not collect any personally identifiable health related information and we do not intentionally collect information from children under the age of 13.

This information we collect or store is used to improve the content of our web services and to help us understand how the public is using these services. In addition, we use your IP address to direct internet traffic to you. This information does not identify you personally.

The Durango Creative District may also collect anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.

We may also collect personally identifiable information when you interact with us, such as sending an e-mail message to us or using the website's “Contact” function to send us a message during your visit to our site. The following personally identifiable information may be collected:

names (individual and organization)

We may collect and use your personally identifiable information for various purposes such as: to operate the Durango Creative District website, to ensure we respond appropriately; to provide you with personalized service; to send e-communications to you; to answer your requests and provide the services you requested; to include you in our Creative Directory subscription; to address issues you identify; to make improvements to our website, products or services; to process billing and business requests, including listservs, membership, subscriptions, donations, purchases, and other online communications; and to forward your e-mail message to another entity for appropriate action, etc. You may choose to “opt out” at any time, which will cease all communications from us.

Individuals or entities that sign up to receive the Durango Creative District e-communications (such as our newsletter) voluntarily provide us with contact information (such as name and e-mail address). Again, you may always “opt out,” either now or at any time in the future, if you do not wish to receive our messages or e-communications.

Your billing and credit card information is stored in Stripe. This is where you are able to manage your billing and subscription information.

Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through the Durango Creative District’s Creative Directory, public message boards or the like, this information may be collected and used by others.

It is the Durango Creative District 's policy to collect no personally identifiable information about you unless that information is required to complete a particular transaction. In addition, we collect no personally identifiable information about you unless you voluntarily participate in activities that ask for information. Choosing not to participate in these activities will not affect your ability to use any other features of our website. Personally identifiable information shall not include any information that is required to be collected pursuant to any state or federal statute or regulation.


The Durango Creative District has taken steps to safeguard the integrity of its telecommunications and computing infrastructure. We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorized access, use, or disclosure, we have put in place suitable procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. The Durango Creative District uses industry standard practices to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal identifiable information, including encryption (Secure Socket Layer - SSL) technology. For example, when personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the SSL protocol. Although the Durango Creative District will take all reasonable precautions to safeguard the confidentiality of such information, no internet security system is perfect and the Durango Creative District and its employees shall not be held liable for any injury caused by the disclosure of that information, whether caused by security breach, accident, inadvertence or any other act resulting in disclosure.
