This Privacy Policy (the “Privacy Policy”) tells you how the Climate Museum uses personal information collected on our web site, www.climatemuseum.org (the “Site”).  Any person accessing, browsing, or otherwise using the Site, either manually or via an automated device or program, shall be considered a "User."  By using the Site, each User consents to the collection, use, and disclosure of personally identifiable User information ("Information") pursuant to the terms set forth below. 


Collection of Information

We collect Information including names, email addresses and other information required to initiate and complete correspondence and transactions using services or programs available on our Site (including providing requested information and marketing communications), and any other information voluntarily submitted by our Users.  We may also collect and store anonymous information relating to Users’ browsing patterns, including for example, the User’s browser version, Site referral information, IP address, operating system and other technical Site use information.  When required, we may disclose specific Information upon governmental request, in response to a court order, or when required by law to do so.  We may also share Information with companies assisting in fraud protection or investigation. 


Cookies

We may place a text file called a "cookie" in the browser files of your computer.  The cookie itself does not contain any Information although it will enable us to relate your use of this Site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided.  A cookie cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites.  Climate Museum may use cookies to track user traffic patterns to the Site, and for session authentication.


Data Security

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of Information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the Information we collect online. Only authorized employees, agents and contractors (who have agreed to keep Information secure and confidential) have access to this Information.  Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be secure.  As a result, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any Information you transmit to or from our Site, and you do so at your own risk.  We make no representations or warranties with regard to the sufficiency of our security measures.  We expressly disclaim any liability for any actual or consequential damages that result from a lapse in compliance with this Privacy Policy.

As the Site evolves, we may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time.  If we decide to change our Privacy Policy, we will post the revised Privacy Policy here.  If we make a significant or material change in the way we use your personal Information, registered Users of the Site may be notified via email.  Please note that our rights to use your Information will be based on the Privacy Policy in effect at the time the Information is used.
