Thank you for visiting HMLC.org. The main purpose of our website is to provide information and services. Your privacy is important to us and we are committed to protecting it and to making you aware of our online practices regarding the privacy of your information.
Our website does not automatically collect any individually identifiable information, such as email addresses, from visitors.
We collect personal information when you provide it in the course of interacting with the site. At HMLC.org, you might be able to register and create a user profile to submit events or posts, make use of a career center, subscribe to an email newsletter, take part in message boards or chat, send greeting cards, participate in polls or surveys, submit a contact form, or make a donation. In so doing, you may be asked to provide personally identifiable information such as your name, address, email address, telephone number, fax number, credit card information, or information about your interests and activities. When registering on our site, we may also ask you to choose a security question to answer (such as your mother’s maiden name or your pet’s name). If you send a greeting card, you must provide the name and e-mail address of the recipient.
If your personal information changes and you wish to update it (such as your address), or if you wish to delete your information, you can make changes to your user profile on the site. If this should prove insufficient, you may contact the website administrator who will correct, update or remove your personal information as requested.
We also may collect information that is not personally identifiable, such as the type of browser you are using (e.g., Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using, (e.g., Windows or Mac OS) and the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g., Charter, Comcast). We may also collect aggregated information on the way visitors interact with and consume content on our websites. This information will not be tied to you as an individual user. Such information is helpful for improving your experience on the website.
How the Information is Used
We may use the information you give us to provide services to you, at your request. We may use it to communicate with you through periodic messages regarding services, events, and other information and notices we believe you may find interesting or useful. We may use it for confirmation of donations, registrations, or other actions you take on our site, and for related customer service needs. We use information you provide about others to enable us to send them your greeting cards.
We do not sell, rent, swap or otherwise share our mailing lists with other organizations. Any personal information you provide on our website will not be disseminated to third parties outside of the Holocaust Museum & Learning Center.
We will disclose personally identifiable information when required to do so by law.
HMLC.org use appropriate procedures to ensure the security of your personal information and to protect it from unauthorized access. In particular, when we ask you to enter credit card information, we use the top industry standard security protection, including encryption, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) transmission connection, and a secure server for information storage. Encryption keys are secured by Network Solutions. For more information on SSL and web security, click here.
While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the top or bottom of Web browsers such as Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked, or open, when you are just “surfing.”
We provide links to other websites that we believe you will find useful. We ask you to recognize that the Holocaust Museum & Learning Center is not responsible in any way for the privacy practices of these other sites.
