When you visit and navigate our sites and when you communicate with us via our sites, we will not collect personal information about you unless you provide us that information voluntarily. Any non-public personal information that you may provide via our sites will be used solely for the purpose stated on the page where it is collected.  (In some cases, and in all cases where required by law or regulation, you will be able to update the information that you provide to us either by sending us an e-mail or, where you have established personal profiles with us, by updating your profile online. Please refer to the specific pages where data is collected for more information.) The The Improv Network will not sell, license, transmit or disclose this information outside of The Improv Network and its affiliated companies unless (a) expressly authorized by you, (b) necessary to enable The Improv Network contractors or agents to perform certain functions for us, or (c) required or permitted by law. In all cases, we will disclose the information consistent with applicable laws and regulations and we will require the recipient to protect the information and use it only for the purpose it was provided.

“Personal information” refers to data that is unique to an individual, such as a name, address, Social Security number, e-mail address, or telephone number. From time to time, we may request personal information from you at our sites in order to deliver requested materials to you, respond to your questions, or deliver a product or service.


This company has the right to terminate any membership at anytime without notice to the member. All members will use the site at their own risk and be responsible when using it. Please refrain from profanities, nudity or anything inappropriate.


This company will collect submission money through PayPal or any financial entity it chooses and transfer the money to the clients via a PayPal account, if they have one, or written check and send them the money via mail. The Improv Network will subtract any service fees that are charged from PayPal or any other financial entity they use. They will also subtract a service fee of Five Dollars ($5) for troupe submissions and Three Dollars ($3) for individual submissions when PayPal is used.


This company will collect a fee for service to be determined by us on every submission it receives.


Moderators will be the only ones allowed to edit their own troupes, theatres or festivals unless the company needs to modify something. Members and us will be able to edit their content only. Members are responsible for their own content and shall be responsible as deemed in the membership terms.


Both the Client and the company have the right to terminate any Services Agreement for any reason, including the ending of services that are already underway. No refunds shall be offered, where a Service is deemed to have begun and is, for all intents and purposes, underway. Any monies that have been paid to us which constitute payment in respect of the provision of unused Services, shall be refunded.


In compliance with The Office of Foreign Assets Control, we are limited in our ability to do transactions with certain countries and territories including: The Balkans, Belarus, Burundi, Central Africa, Cuba, Republic of the Congo, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Magnitsky, North Korea, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, Syria, Ukraine/Russia, Venezuela, Yemen, and Zimbabwe (not exhaustive).  In addition to complying with all Federal, State, and Local laws, policies, and regulations, we are also required to follow specific procedures that ensure that we act in accordance with the United States government.  Performers and theatres from those territories may have to comply with additional requirements in order to utilize the services of The Improv Network.

You should also be aware that when you visit our websites, we collect certain information that does not identify you personally, but provides us with “usage data,” such as the number of visitors we receive or what pages are visited most often. This data helps us to analyze and improve the usefulness of the information we provide at these websites.

Like most commercial website owners, we may use what is known as “cookie” technology. A “cookie” is an element of data that a website can send to your browser when you link to that website. It is not a computer program and has no ability to read data residing on your computer or instruct it to perform any step or function. By assigning a unique data element to each visitor, the website is able to recognize repeat users, track usage patterns and better serve you when you return to that site. The cookie does not extract other personal information about you, such as your name or address.

We may also use what is known as “client-side page tagging”, which uses code on each page to write certain information about the page and the visitor to a log when a page is rendered by your web browser. This technique is also commonly used on commercial websites. “Tagging” does result in a JavaScript program running on your computer, but it is limited to providing information about the page that you are requesting and the configuration of your browser. It will not read any of your data files, or execute any additional programs. It does not extract any personal information about you, such as your name or address. You can prevent tagging by disabling JavaScript in your browser, but that may prevent you from using all of our website’s functions.

The Improv Network may change this statement from time to time. We encourage you to periodically reread this policy to see if there have been any changes that may affect you. This statement is not intended to and does not create any contractual or other legal rights in or on behalf of any party.
