This page is used to inform website visitors regarding our policies with the collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information.

If you choose to subscribe to our newsletter, submit your contact information to receive notices, or otherwise provide your Personal Information for upcoming concerts, lectures, or any and all other programs offered by us, then you agree to the collection and use of information in relation with this policy.

Who we are

Our website address is:

The Classical Sax Project (CSP) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to providing high quality musical events and programs for its community, including musical instruction, master classes and lectures.

Javier Oviedo is a founding member and Executive Director of CSP along with co-creator, Maestro Schmitt. The Classical Saxophone Project’s mission is to foster awareness and education of the classical repertoire of the saxophone.

Who we share your data with

The Classical Sax Project does not sell our subscriber’s private personal information.

We use third-party services (data processors) across our site. We list the specific third-parties in use (with links to their privacy policies) in the sections below.

We disclose potentially personally-identifying information only to our employees and contractors that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on our behalf or to provide services, and (ii) that have agreed, in writing, not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using our website and any possible services provided, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. We will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying information to anyone.

We may be required to disclose an individual’s personal information in response to a lawful request by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, CSP collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. CSP’s purpose in collecting non-personally-identifying information is to better understand how CSP’s visitors use its website. From time to time, CSP may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

CSP also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for users leaving comments on our blogs. CSP only discloses commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Email and Contact Forms

CSP uses WPForms, where you can link to their Privacy Policy page, for our Contact page form functionality. If you choose to subscribe to our email list via the Contact form in order to receive notices on upcoming news and events, your consent to our Privacy Policy allows CSP to collect your name, email, and potentially any message in order to respond to inquiries via our contact form submission process.

CSP collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with us. We do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described in this Privacy Policy, and visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information.

We use MailChimp for email marketing.

Web Services

All web servers and hosting are managed by GoDaddy whose privacy policy can be found here:

Embedded Content From Other Websites

Articles on CSP may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.).

Embeds are pieces from other websites that are shown from time to time on our website. They behave in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website and may use cookies or capture information. Typically embedded content is from websites that share videos, images, or other content.

These services may collect your IP Address, your User Agent, store and retrieve cookies on your browser, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including correlating your interaction with the content with your account with that service, if you are logged in to that service.

Links to the privacy policies of the most common services have been included below.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


We use Google Analytics for tracking visitors and aggregating information about the traffic to our websites. The Google Analytics privacy policy can be found here: You can learn more about how to opt-out of tracking in Google Analytics here:

We’ve turned on the IP Anonymization feature in Google Analytics. You can learn more about this here:

Security Logs

The IP address of visitors, user ID of logged in users, and username of login attempts are conditionally logged to check for malicious activity and to protect the site from specific kinds of attacks. Examples of conditions when logging occurs include login attempts, log out requests, requests for suspicious URLs, changes to site content, and password updates. This information, as well as security logs, is retained for 60 days.

This site is scanned for potential malware and vulnerabilities by the iThemes Site Scanner. We do not send personal information to the scanner; however, the scanner could find personal information posted publicly (such as in comments) during the scan.

Event, Venue, and Organizer Information

CSP uses The Events Calendar and Events Calendar PRO plugin (by Modern Tribe) as well as the Event Aggregator Import service which stores collected information in our database. This allows us to create, save, and publish event and venue information which is retained in our local database, such as:

  • Venue information: name, address, city, country, state, postal code, phone, website, geographical coordinates (latitude and longitude)
  • Event information: website, cost, description, date, time, image

API Keys

The Events Calendar suite offers the use of third-party API keys. The primary functions are to enhance the features built into the plugin, some of which use Google Maps. These API keys are not supplied by Modern Tribe.

How long we retain your data

All information (data) is retained in the local database indefinitely, unless otherwise deleted.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you’re a subscriber or have left comments on our site you can request to see or download the data we have about you by contacting Florence Deniau.

Typically for visitors that have left comments, the data will be their email address, any IP addresses assigned to them at the time of leaving the comments and the user agent strings of the browsers they used. The rest of the data is public as published by the visitors.

An individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data, should direct his/her query to Florence Deniau.

If you have left comments on this site, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you by contacting Florence Deniau, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Any form data related to subscriptions is also shared with Mailchimp as our sole email service provider.  Mailchimp’s privacy policy identifies how they process the data CSP provides to them. As the controller of the process, CSP is responsible for the oversight of this process.
