We understand the importance of privacy to our visitors to our Website. Our policy is to treat what we learn about our visitors as confidential. We will not give or sell confidential or personal information about our visitors to any third party not affiliated with our firm, except as required by law or as necessary to provide the Museums’ services to the visitors.
We collect and store information about every visitor we handle so that we can efficiently provide visitors the services they demand. We use information about our visitors, and their activities to provide or enhance the services we make available to our visitors, to enhance our ability to communicate with our visitors about additional information they may find of value, to satisfy our legitimate interests (including performing trend analysis and market studies), to set prices, establish credit, fulfill contracts, accomplish the billing function, and to comply with government regulations. As we collect and use information about our visitors, we may contract with vendors to assist us in processing that information. These vendors are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are restricted from using the information for any purpose other than helping to provide the Museums’ services to our visitors.
Some of the information collected by the Museums is personal data or data which relates to an identifiable person, such as names, addresses, e-mail addresses, and telephone numbers. We never sell information to third parties not affiliated with our firm that could be used to specifically to identify an individual visitor or group of visitors. Anonymous data, with all names, addresses and other personally identifiable information removed, is sometimes shared with third parties or used to create data for publications. We will provide personal data to government agencies as required by law or regulation.
Your continued use of this Website signifies your assent to the Museums’ Legal Policy. We reserve the right, at our discretion, to, modify, add, or remove portions of this policy at any time. Please check this page periodically for changes.
