Notwithstanding anything else in this policy, we may: (a) disclose personal and aggregate information when required by a valid legal mechanism such as a search warrant,  subpoena, or court order, or when we deem it necessary to protect the safety of Site users, our employees or property; and (b) disclose  personal information in the context of the sale of some or all of our assets.

AMDA Alumni Online Profile Accounts

Members who register for an AMDA Alumni Online Profile Account voluntarily provide us with personal contact and professional information and may occasionally receive electronic mailings from the American Musical and Dramatic Academy. Alumni address, phone, and e-mail contact information are available only to AMDA employees and the Office of Alumni Relations. The Alumni Online Profile Accounts are password-protected and only available to the user. Limited profile information may be made available to other alumni and to the public through the Online Alumni Directory, but participation in the Directory is voluntary: alumni are given the opportunity to opt out of the Alumni Directory after they register for the Online Alumni Account.

From time-to-time casting directors, agents and other industry professionals contact AMDA directly to learn about a specific AMDA graduate. AMDA will never release an AMDA graduate’s personal information but will in turn contact the graduate directly to distribute the information of the interested party.

Alumni may request at any time to be removed from the mailing list or have their online profile deleted by contacting the Office of Alumni Relations through the “Help/Support” link when logged into their account or by phone at 800-367-7908.
