All information gathered from you in connection with your use of this website (the “Site”) is governed by this privacy policy, and by using the Site or communicating with us by email, you agree to its terms and conditions. PAM is committed to protecting your privacy. We do not systematically collect or record names, addresses, phone numbers, gender identity or other personally identifying data (the “Personal Data”) from visitors to the Site, unless such data is voluntarily submitted by visitors for the purposes outlined below.

Information collected on the site

PAM uses the personal information you provide to us for internal purposes, such as filling and tracking your order, analyzing trends, and collecting statistics. PAM may also compile and provide aggregate statistics about our visitors, customers, sales, traffic patterns and related site information to third parties, but these statistics will not include any Personal Data.

We may combine information you give to us online or at PAM. We may also combine this information with publicly available information and information we received from or have cross-referenced with our third-party vendors such as information collected from cookies and other technologies to improve your user experience, to communicate with you about products or events that may be of interest to you, or for other promotional purposes.

PAM has implemented Google Analytics Advertising Features including remarketing with Google Analytics, Google Display Network impression reporting, Google Analytics demographics and interest reporting, and integrated services that require Google Analytics to collect data for advertising purposes, including the collection of data via advertising cookies and identifiers. PAM and third-party vendors use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) or other first-party identifiers, and third-party cookies (such as Google advertising cookies) or other third-party identifiers together. Visitors can opt-out of the Google Analytics Advertising Features via Google Analytics’ currently available opt-outs for the web.


The PAM Site may include links to websites operated by third parties over which we have no control. Once you leave the PAM Site, the PAM Privacy Policy will not apply, and you access such sites at your own risk.

Email newsletter

We may record your email address if you email us, submit an online form that contains your email address, register for classes or events, purchase a ticket, purchase a membership or make a donation online, or opt to receive email notices of PAM programs, news, and events. We will never share your email address. You may opt out of the email newsletter at any time by following the link in every newsletter footer or by emailing and referencing “Remove from Email Newsletter” in the subject line.

Financial transactions & donor privacy

When you enter into a financial transaction with the PAM, including but not limited to purchasing a membership, making a donation, or purchasing online tickets, we and our third-party merchants and agents will request information necessary to process your transaction: your name, billing and shipping address, telephone number, email address and credit card information.

Your credit card information will be used only for the purpose of processing and documenting the transaction. We will never share, rent, or sell your credit card information to third parties.

We do not sell our donor, member, or visitor information. As is the common practice for nonprofits to attract new visitors and members, we may exchange the names and postal addresses we receive with other similar nonprofit organizations. If you do not want to have your information used in this way, you may send an email message containing your name and postal address to and referencing “Do Not Share Postal Address” in the subject line. Call 503-276-4365  with any questions specific to donations and donor information.
