Collection of Information on the Museum Website
Online Memberships, Donations and Other Purchases: When you purchase a membership, make a donation or buy other items, we will ask you to provide us with the information we need to process your order or membership, acknowledge your contribution, and provide your membership and admission benefits. This information includes your name and names of other members on your account, billing and/or shipping addresses, telephone number, e-mail address, and credit card information. Your credit card information will be used only as needed to process your transaction.
Children Twelve and Under: The Museum does not solicit personal information from children. Visitors twelve years of age and under should remember that they are required to obtain an adult's permission before submitting any personal information to this or any other website, or on the Museum visitors’ register.
Museum e-Newsletters: The Museum provides an online quarterly newsletter, called Museum Momentum, to all members, and may send non-members the newsletter from time to time. You may unsubscribe at any time by sending the Museum an email at email@example.com.

Use and Disclosure of Collected Information
Used only for internal purposes: The Museum uses the personal information you provide to us for internal purposes, such as filling and tracking your order, analyzing trends and collecting statistics. The Museum may also compile and provide aggregate statistics about our visitors, customers, sales, traffic patterns and related site information to third parties, but these statistics will not include any personally identifying information.
Information not sold: We do not sell our purchaser, visitor, member or donor information. As is the common practice for nonprofits to attract new members, we may exchange the names and postal addresses we receive from members with other similar nonprofit organizations. If you do not want to have your information used in this way, you may send an e-mail message containing your name and postal address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Opting out: If you have provided us with your e-mail or postal mailing address, we may send you communications in order to inform you of events or activities at or related to the Museum that we believe may be of interest to you, or to alert you about sales or other promotional events at the Museum. If you do not want us to use your e-mail address to contact you for these purposes, you may send an e-mail message containing your name and postal address to email@example.com. However, essentially all our communications are internet/email based. We don’t usually send anything via postal mail. If you tell us not to use your email, then you have effectively cut yourself off from the Museum.
Combining of information: We may combine information you give to us online or at the Museum. We may also combine this information with publicly available information and information we received from or have cross-referenced with our third-party vendors and others. We use this combined information to enhance and personalize your experience with us, to communicate with you about products or events that may be of interest to you, or for other promotional purposes.
Additional Privacy Information
