The Museum automatically collects some anonymous, non-personally identifiable aggregate information about visitors via Google Analytics. This information is used for statistical purposes and to help us monitor how guests navigate the Site, allowing us to tailor our services for specific groups of visitors. Non-personally identifiable information may refer to information about our visitors’ browsers, operating systems, Internet Service Providers, traffic patterns, and related information.
The Museum will not disclose any Personal Data about you as an individual user (such as your name, street address, telephone number, credit card number, or e-mail address) to any third party, except as required by law.
The Museum does not knowingly solicit personal information from children. Children should always ask parents for permission before providing personal information to this or any other website.
The Museum makes every reasonable effort to ensure the security of transactions that occur on the Site, and to protect personal and non-personally identifiable information that it receives via the Internet against unauthorized access. The Museum utilizes SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption technology, which encodes visitors' credit card numbers, names, and addresses as it travels over the Internet, ensuring that all transactions are secure.
However, due to the inherent nature of the internet as an open global communications vehicle, the Museum cannot guarantee that information will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others, such as hackers. The Museum will have no liability for disclosure of your information due to errors or unauthorized acts of third parties during or after transmission.
