Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us. This page outlines our privacy and security policies as they apply to our site and any third party sites and applications that the Houston Downtown Management District (Downtown District) uses such as Google Analytics, Instagram, etc.

Your visit to the Downtown Houston website

Your visit to the Downtown Houston website is private and secure. When you visit the Downtown Houston website, we do not collect any personally identifiable information about you, unless you choose to explicitly provide it to us. We do however, use Google Analytics to collect data about your visit to our website such as the pages you view and the amount of time you spend on them. This is to help us better understand public use of the site and to make it more useful to visitors.


The Downtown District does not disclose, give, sell or transfer any information about our visitors, unless required for law enforcement or by statute.

Your visit to third-party websites

Our website does contain links to affiliate and other websites. The Downtown District does not claim nor accept responsibility for any privacy policies, practices, procedures, or lack thereof on other such websites.

The Downtown District uses a variety of new technologies and social media tools to communicate and interact with our audiences. Use of some of these applications could cause personally identifiable information to become available or accessible to The Downtown District, regardless of whether we solicit or collect it.


The Downtown District uses Instagram to share photos of Downtown Houston with its audience and encourages its fans to use the hash tags #DowntownHouston and #DTHTX so that we can interact with and share our favorite public photos with others both on our Instagram account and on the Downtown Houston website. The Downtown District uses the Instagram API but is not endorsed or certified by Instagram, and we follow the Instagram API Terms of Use.


We use cookies for social sharing (see “Instagram” above), Google Analytics (see “Your visit to the Downtown Houston website” above), and to improve the security of our website (see csrftoken here).
