Give By Cell Data Collection

These services are both administered via a user's mobile phone. See the GBC Privacy Policy for additional information.

SMS/TEXT communications – When a mobile phone user sends and receives SMS/text messages to or from the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities via our third-party vendor by texting a keyword to a short code phone number - Guide By Cell (GBC), also known as Give By Cell (GBC), GBC may collect and maintain information associated with those messages, such as the phone number, the wireless carrier associated with the phone number, the content of the message, and the date and time of the transaction.

Dial-in audio service – When a mobile phone user makes a call into our dial-in audio service provided by GBC, GBC captures the caller ID of the user. This is done to authenticate the mobile phone user, track usage and provide data to the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities with whom the mobile phone user is affiliated and/or visiting while using this dial-in audio service.
