Historic Richmond Town (also herein referred to as “HRT” or “the Museum”) is strongly committed to protecting the privacy of its online guests, customers, members, patrons, sponsors, donors, and friends. We believe that helping to maintain privacy on the web is very important; informing visitors to our site about the types of data we collect and how we use it is very important.
ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS
LINKS TO PARTNER AND EXTERNAL SITES
Users may find links to the sites and services of partners, sponsors, or third parties. Although every effort is made to ensure that any referrals are to reputable and relevant sources, the Museum does not control the content of these sites nor the links which appear on these sites. These external sites and/or services, including their content and links, may be changing. Please check the privacy policies and use policies of these external sites, if available.
Any personal information provided to Historic Richmond Town is maintained and accessible only by the Museum and its authorized agents, unless the Museum explicitly states otherwise.
Aggregate data could be analyzed to describe the collective characteristics and patterns of online visitors and subsequently be used to improve the effectiveness of our site.
WITH WHOM INFORMATION IS SHARED
The Museum will never intentionally disclose any personal information 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 without having received your prior permission, unless compelled to in order to comply with legal requirements.
THIRD PARTY PARTNERS
Historic Richmond Town has taken all possible precautions to insure that the privacy of its online visitors is protected by any online partners. In cases when users leave the Museum’s site to visit one of its partners’ sites, users are encouraged to become familiar with the privacy statements of each site they visit.
TYPES OF DATA COLLECTED
Historic Richmond Town does not collect, through its website, any personal information about individuals—such as names and postal or e-mail addresses—except when such information is knowingly provided to the Museum. Personal information may be received as part of a form submission or in connection with other activities, services, or resources made available on the site. Any personal identification information retrieved by the Museum must be voluntarily submitted by the user.
Like most sites, the Museum’s web server does collect some anonymous “non-personally identifiable” information about visitors automatically when pages on our Web site are requested through a browser. This information is used for statistical purposes and to help us monitor how guests navigate the site, allowing us to improve our services for the majority of visitors. Non-personally identifiable information may refer to information about our visitors’ browsers (e.g., Firefox, Opera, or Internet Explorer), operating systems (e.g., Windows or Macintosh or Linux), Internet Service Providers (e.g., Verizon®, RCN®, or Optimum Online®), and other similar information.
The Museum’s Web server records connecting IP addresses as part of the non-personally identifiable information. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer, or device that you are connecting through, and is assigned by your Internet service provider. This information is used only for non-user-specific purposes such as determining how many users visited a specific area of our site. Such information could, if necessary, be used to identify a user in order to comply with safety and/or security issues or with legal requirements.
Historic Richmond Town makes every effort to protect all personal and non-personally identifiable information that it receives via the Internet against unauthorized access.
