Privacy Policy

Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA is an initiative of the J. Paul Getty Trust (the "Getty") in collaboration with arts institutions across Southern California. This website (the "Site") is owned by the Getty.

We are committed to protecting your privacy. We do not collect your personal information, such as your name, mailing address, or e-mail address, unless you knowingly provide it to us.

Most pages of the Site contain a link to this privacy policy, which describes what information we collect and how we use it. By using the Site or communicating with us by e-mail, you agree to the terms and conditions of this privacy policy.

General Policy on Collection of Information

We collect personally identifiable information only if you knowingly provide it to us.

We may record your e-mail address if you e-mail us, submit an online form that contains your e-mail address, or opt to receive e-mail notices about Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA. We will not share your email address or personally identifiable information with anyone.

Cookies and Pixel Tags

A cookie is a piece of data we store on your computer's hard drive. This data contains information about you that we use to help make your visit to the Site easier. For example, one cookie we may store can remember what kind of video capability you have selected, so that you do not have to choose a bandwidth every time you watch a video. In addition, we have authorized various reputable companies to help us track cookies so that we can analyze how people are using the Site in order to continually offer the best possible experience for our visitors. Pixel tags are small pieces of code that may place cookies or provide non-personally- identifiable information such as IP address, time of website visit, or browser used.

In addition, the Getty engages third-party service providers who use cookies and pixel tags on our behalf. See "Third-Party Service Providers," below.

Neither the Getty nor any of the companies we work with will collect personally-identifiable information using cookies or pixel tags.

You do not have to accept any Getty cookies to enjoy and use the Getty website; if you reject all Getty cookies you will simply have to re-enter the preferences that we would otherwise record for you.

Your iOS or Android device may provide a "Limit Ad Tracking" or "Opt out of interest-based advertising" setting that you can enable if you would like to limit ad tracking from pixel tags on mobile devices.

Third-Party Service Providers

The Getty engages reputable third-party vendors in order to help us manage the Site and mobile applications, process transactions, better respond to the needs of our visitors, and enhance our marketing efforts. This includes third-party marketing partners who serve advertisements across the Internet and sometimes on the Site and mobile applications on the Getty’s behalf. They may use information about your visits to the Site and mobile applications and other sites to personalize advertisements.


The Getty offers free electronic newsletters sent via e-mail.

To receive an e-newsletter by e-mail, you need to submit your e-mail address. Your e-mail address is stored on secure servers and will not be shared with anyone other than the Getty. When you sign up, you can choose to receive the e-newsletters in HTML, which includes graphics, or as text only, which does not include graphics.

You may stop receiving e-newsletters at any time. Follow the "unsubscribe" link in the footer of any newsletter.

Aggregate Information

The Getty or its agents may compile and provide aggregate statistics about website visitors, viewing and traffic patterns, and related information to third parties, including, without limitation, institutions participating in the Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative, but such information will not include specific individually-identifiable data about users.

Links to Other Websites

The Site contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by the Getty. We are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of other sites. This Privacy Policy applies only to the Site.
