Thank you for choosing to be part of our community at Experience Kitsap (“Kitsap Culture,” “we,” “us,” or “our”). We are committed to protecting your personal information and your right to privacy. If you have any questions or concerns about our policy, please contact us at This privacy policy describes how Experience Kitsap may collect, use, and share information from its website and any mobile applications that link to this Privacy Policy. Any information accessed through is collectively referred to as the "Site."

What Information do we collect?
We do not collect any information. We do not collect personal information that you may voluntarily or intentionally provide when you visit our Site. For example, when you:

  • View content on our site;
  • Submit information for an event;
  • Submit any interest to contribute to our site; or
  • Submit a comment or question through our contact form or otherwise communicate with us through the Site.

For information provided for an event or when a comment/suggestion is provided, the information is deleted following a full review of the content. This information contains your IP address along with the email address and content provided.

Through Google analytics, we may review the data that they collect, but personally identifiable information is not collected. Any information reviewed on the Google analytic platform is reviewed for trend analysis and behavior flow.

We do not collect Device Information using any technology such as:

  • “Cookies” placed on your device or computer which often include anonymous unique identifiers.
  • “Log files” which track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps. We use these for the purposes of logging errors in our system. 

When we talk about “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy it includes Device Information and personally identifiable information of the individual. We will never obtain personally identifiable information on you from other sources, such as public databases or other third parties.

How do we use your information?
The only information we review is from Google Analytics, Facebook analytics, and Instagram analytics. Analytics is anonymized data that will typically provide information on gender, age, geographic location, time spent on specific site pages, and sometimes interests. This information is not associated with you specifically. The information reviewed from these analytics is used to determine which content our site visitors find most interesting. Personally identifiable information is never sought nor gleaned from these platforms.

Under what circumstances would we share your information? The term "your information" is any personally identifiable information associated with an individual.

  • Consent: Site visitors may request information on certain events. If requested to be placed in contact with other cultural entities then we may either share your contact information with the appropriate parties or provide the visitor with the party(ies) contact information to allow the requestor to contact them specifically. For example, if a site visitor requests to be placed in contact with any entity or individuals who are involved in the annual dahlia show or activities, we may share the requestor's contact information with those individual(s)/entity(ies) or simply provide the requestor with the individual(s)/entity(ies) contact information.
  • Legitimate Interests: We do not collect personally identifiable information. 
  • Performance of a Contract: Where we have entered into a contract with you, we may process your personal information to fulfill the terms of our contract.
  • Legal Obligations: If there is any personally identifiable information provided in any unforeseen situation, we may disclose your information only where we are legally required to do so in order to comply with applicable law, governmental requests, a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process, such as in response to a court order or a subpoena (including in response to public authorities to meet national security or law enforcement requirements).
  • Vital Interests:  We do not collect personally identifiable information. 

Who will your information be shared with?
We do not collect personally identifiable information. Therefore, your information will not be shared with anyone.

Do we use cookies and other tracking technologies?
The tracking technology we will rely on is Google Analytics. Currently, Google Analytics does not track people, but rather tracks unique browser cookies (specifically, the Client ID field) to determine users. Google tracks each unique Client ID they see as a unique user in your analytics reports.

How long do we keep your information?
We do not collect personally identifiable information. For example, if you submit an event through our website, the information will be removed once the event is listed and once you are notified that the event was listed. However, the email sent to to the event submitter will typically remain in our email "sent" box but will not be shared with any individual or entity and will not be used for any other purpose other than notifying the submitter of the event listing.

Do we collect information from minors?
We do not knowingly solicit data from or market to children under 18 years of age. By using the Site, you represent that you are at least 18 or that you are the parent or guardian of such a minor and consent to such minor dependent’s use of the Site. If we learn that personal information from users less than 18 years of age has been collected, we will take reasonable measures to promptly delete such data from our records. If you become aware of any data we have collected from children under age 18, please contact us at

Cookies and similar technologies.
Most Web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove cookies and to reject cookies. If you choose to remove cookies or reject cookies, this could affect certain features or services of our Site. To opt-out of interest-based advertising, please visit

Controls for do-not-track features.
Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems and mobile applications include a Do-Not-Track (“DNT”) feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. No uniform technology standard for recognizing and implementing DNT signals has been finalized. As such, we do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online. If a standard for online tracking is adopted that we must follow in the future, we will inform you about that practice in a revised version of this Privacy Policy.

Do California residents have specific privacy rights?
California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as the “Shine The Light” law, permits our users who are California residents to request and obtain from us, once a year and free of charge, information about categories of personal information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes and the names and addresses of all third parties with which we shared personal information in the immediately preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to us using the contact information provided below.

    Removal of unwanted information.
    You have the right to request removal of data that you publicly post on this site and our social media pages. To request removal of such data, please contact us using the contact information provided below, and include the email address associated with your account. We will make sure the data is not publicly displayed on the Site, but please be aware that the data may not be completely or comprehensively removed from our systems.

    Do we make updates to this policy?
    We may update this privacy policy from time to time. The updated version will be indicated by an updated “Revised” date and the updated version will be effective as soon as it is accessible. If we make material changes to this privacy policy, we may notify you either by prominently posting a notice of such changes or by directly sending you a notification.
