Who we are

We are the Art League of Fort Bend County (ALFB) in Texas, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, established in 1957 and run by volunteers, whose mission is to encourage artistic development and to cultivate an appreciation for the arts through education, exhibitions and community outreach.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


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: https://automattic.com/privacy/. 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.

Contact forms, cookies and purchases

If you purchased a membership or signed up for the newsletter email list, that information goes to our Constant Contact account, whose privacy policy can be found here:

If you purchased a membership, that information is shared with the Lone Star Art Guild. You automatically get a membership in LSAG when you join ALFB. This page would allow members in good standing with ALFB to submit inquiries about LSAG’s privacy policy: https://www.lonestarartguild.org/ (scroll to the inquiry form at the bottom)

If you are a Gallery Member and schedule your hours using TeamUp, their Privacy Policy can be found here: https://www.teamup.com/privacy-policy/

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

All online transactions and their cookies are now handled by Payable Apps (via Google Forms) and PayPal. Payables’s Privacy Policy can be found here: https://www.payableapps.com/privacy-policy Google’s Privacy Policy can be found here: https://policies.google.com/privacy PayPal’s Privacy Policy can be found here: https://www.paypal.com/myaccount/privacy/privacyhub

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

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.

Who we share your data with

We do not share your data with anyone except as described here. We do not sell our mailing, emailing or membership lists.

How long we retain your data

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 have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, 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. This does NOT include information collected automatically by any third party sites mentioned here. You must contact any third party sites yourself, ALFB cannot act on your behalf.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
