The USS Constitution Museum (“USSCM”, “we”, “us”, “our”, etc.), is committed to protecting the private information of our online visitors. The USS Constitution Museum website (https://ussconstitutionmuseum.org and all corresponding subdomains and associated webpages) adheres to the following privacy policy to ensure the privacy of your personally identifiable information.

Gathering and Use of Information

1. We will not collect personally identifiable information from you, other than what you provide to us on a voluntary basis, except as stated in this Privacy Policy.
2. You may be asked to provide some personally identifiable information (such as full name, address, email address, telephone number, credit card information, etc.) in order to participate in the following online activities:

  • group reservations
  • purchase of products or other services
  • donations and giving
  • memberships
  • eNews subscriptions
  • blog subscriptions
  • surveys and contests

3. When you disclose personal information on the Museum website, we may use this information internally to complete a transaction, distribute receipts and thank-you letters, provide information about Museum-related news and upcoming events, extend Museum-related promotional offers, or send administrative or service-related announcements.

4. The Museum does not sell, trade, rent or share names, addresses, telephone numbers or e-mail address to any third party.

5. The Museum may disclose personally identifiable information when such disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with the law; enforce the terms of any of our user agreements; or protect the rights, property, and safety of the USSCM, the users of its site, or others.

Information Collected Through Cookies

The USSCM website uses cookies (small text files that are created when you use your browser to visit a website) to automatically collect information about your equipment, browsing actions, and patterns as you interact with the USSCM website. At no time will cookies reveal to others your name, email address, street address, or telephone number. If you wish to opt out of using cookies, you should be able to change your settings to notify you when a cookie is being set or updated, local storage is being used, and/or to block cookies and/or the use of local storage altogether.

Linked Sites

The USSCM website may link to external websites operated by other organizations. The USSCM is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites and encourages you to read the privacy policies of other websites as these policies may differ from ours.

Children Twelve and Under

The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) restricts the collection of personal information of children aged 12 or younger. The USSCM does not solicit personally identifiable 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 information to this website. If your child has submitted personally identifiable information and you would like to request that such information be removed, you may contact us at museumadmin@usscm.org.

Security

The credit card information you provide online for any purpose is protected by an encryption technology called the Secure Sockets Layer Protocol. This security software encrypts your credit card information so that it cannot be read. The USSCM cannot guarantee 100% security of information provided via the Internet or through our website. If you prefer, you may supply credit card information over the phone by contacting the appropriate department.

Disclaimer

The USSCM takes reasonable precautions to protect your personally identifiable information both online and off-line, but absolute security cannot be guaranteed. The USSCM shall not be liable for the transfer or use of any personally identifiable information resulting from loss or distribution of data, the corruption of storage media, power failures, natural phenomena, riots, acts of vandalism, sabotage, terrorism or any other event beyond the USSCM’s reasonable control.

Revisions to our Privacy Policy

The USSCM may revise this Privacy Policy at any time, without notice. Any such change is effective immediately upon posting it on the USSCM website. We encourage you to periodically visit this page to review our most current Privacy Policy. Certain provisions of this Privacy Policy may be superseded by expressly designated legal notices or terms located on particular pages on the USSCM website.
