The Statz Music Studio respects the privacy of its students and their families. The following explains how Mrs. Statz collects, uses and safeguards your information.
All information collected is kept on record in the students files as well as on a data base for quick reference in case of an emergency. Information collection may include the first lesson information sheet, any e-mail and verbal information that you supply, digital and video recordings.
USE OF STUDENT INFORMATION
The Statz Music Studio may, on occasion, send you e-mails regarding studio news, events and any other information that you will want to know. E-mails are used in a group e-mail setting to contact students/parents quickly but, when used, are done so in a "blind copy" situation unless e-mail is going only to those who need to be connected via e-mail. When possible, permission will be received prior to such an e-mailing will occur. Students who wish for me to have their e-mail will be kept in the same confidential matter. Parents will always receive an e-mail from me if the student is receiving one from me. A student's birthday is acknowledged on a calendar in the studio only. Students names may appear on the studio website but only their first name and last initial will be used. Students who receive certain awards, such as the Achievement Award or a WMTA award, may have their full names appear in the Leader Telegram. If you wish to not be listed as such, just contact Mrs. Statz to sign for the removal of your name from any public notices. Students full names will appear in Studio Recitals. A map of the student's home is kept in a back room just in case I need to quickly learn where someone lives in order to drop off music or know which students live near each other for duet purposes. Again, exact addresses are not shared unless prior permission is given.
