In certain circumstances, the PEG may use your contact information to inform you of other PEG products and services. In addition, you may be provided the opportunity to be informed of the products and services of affiliated organisations and other carefully selected cultural institutions. You will have an opportunity at the time we collect the information to indicate your preference for receiving additional information from the PEG and/or affiliated organisations, and where applicable, for inclusion in information exchanges with other cultural institutions. If you do not wish to have your information used for these or other identified purposes, tell us and we will respect your wishes. The PEG will seek to require that such affiliated organisations and/or cultural organisations maintain appropriate privacy policies.
