Welcome! This Privacy Policy describes the collection, use and disclosure of information collected online by our website at www.anschutzcollection.org (including any subpages or mobile versions thereof) or any other website where this policy is posted (each, the “Site”). This Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) forms an agreement between you and the American Museum of Western Art—The Anschutz Collection, a tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation (“AMWA,” “us,” “our,” or “we”). Through your continued use of our Site, you consent to the practices described in this Policy.

This Policy describes what information we may collect, how we may collect it, with whom we may share it, and other matters related to the information we collect from our Site, including your choices regarding collection and disclosure to third parties. This Policy is incorporated into our Terms of Use and may include terms that are defined in that agreement. Unless stated otherwise, this Policy only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you online through our Site.

What Personal Information do we collect and how do we use it?

For the purposes of this policy, “Personal Information” means any information that can be used to identify you as an individual, such as your: full name; address; email; telephone number; any persistent identifier that can be used to recognize you over time and across different services; and any information about an individual linked to such identifying information.

When you contact us through the Site

On our Site, we request your name and email address directly from you if you use our “contact us” form, and we may request additional information if you submit a volunteer application, school tour request, or other form through our Site. We will use Personal Information collected from the applicable form as necessary to respond to your inquiry or fulfill your request.

When you sign up for our mailing list

We collect additional Personal Information when a user signs up for a mailing list on our Site. Typically, we will collect only your email address and name. We collect this information so that we can send you those emails, newsletters or other information you request.

When you make a purchase.

Purchases on our Site are processed through a third party service provider. Our third party service provider may collect Personal Information when you purchase items in our online store. Typically, we and our third party service providers will collect your name, email address, phone number, mailing address, payment account information, security codes, other Personal Information that may be required to process your transaction, and other information depending on the purpose for which the Personal Information was provided.

We use purchase information in order to administer, manage and correspond with you about your purchase, and may also add your Personal Information to our customer database(s) in order to inform you of upcoming events, offers or other information that may be of interest to you. We may also collect and store your purchase information and associate it with other Personal Information held about you in order to improve our services for you.

Third party sites and services

Please be aware, certain services available on or through our Site may be provided by third parties. You may also visit other third party sites through links on our Site. These third parties are not bound by this policy and may have privacy policies of their own governing the use and disclosure of your Personal Information. Please read any policies of third parties before you provide Personal Information to them.

Cookies and online tracking

Our Site may use cookies, web beacons and similar digital tracking technologies. Cookies are small data files that are transferred to your hard drive when your browser settings permit the acceptance of cookies. Similar technologies, such as web beacons or pixel tags function through the use of small files, such as a GIF or PNG, which are opened on a page, ad, or in an email. The request for these files from a server reveals certain information, such as your browser type, IP address, and other information.

Our Site may use cookies or other technologies provided by website analytics services such as Google Analytics to help us better understand how our Site is used. By tracking how and when you use our Site, these technologies help us determine which features and content on our Site are most important to our visitors. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, you can turn off cookies using your browser’s settings menu; however, this may eliminate our ability to provide a personalized or user-friendly experience.

With whom may we share your Personal Information?

Information we collect may be shared with a variety of parties, depending upon the purpose for and context in which that information was provided. We reserve the right to share your Personal Information with any of our current or future affiliated entities, subsidiaries, and parent companies. We may also share your Personal Information and other information with trusted third parties for marketing or other commercial purposes.

Please note, if you use any social media plugin, api, or other similar feature, use an AMWA-related hashtag or similar link, or otherwise interact with us or our Site via social media, your post may be made available on our Site or to the general public. We may share, rebroadcast, or redisplay that information or other information derived from your social media interactions to the extent permitted by the terms of use governing the relevant social media service.

We may share a limited amount of your Personal Information with third parties who provide certain services on our behalf, or in the circumstances noted below. For example, we may share certain Personal Information we collect with providers of data hosting or processing services, or other service providers. We may also occasionally share Personal Information with the Anschutz Foundation, or other entities with which we have an affiliation, or with unrelated third parties in connection with joint initiatives, or if we believe their information would be of interest to you.

Further, we may share Personal Information we possess as part of a sale or transfer our business, or substantially all of our assets. To the extent permitted by laws, we may share Personal Information if we need to protect the interests of AMWA, our customers, property, or the public. Similarly, we may share Personal Information with governmental authorities or otherwise in response to a legal request that we believe requires us to do so. We will share any such information to the extent we believe that request requires. Legal requests include, for example, search warrants, subpoenas, and other court orders. We may also receive legal requests or orders from jurisdictions outside the United States, in which case you consent for your Personal Information to be transferred to the applicable country.

How can I access, update, or delete my Personal Information?

You may also access or update any Personal Information we hold about you by sending a letter or email using the contact information listed below. We will respond to reasonable requests for access or revision and will provide access to the extent required or allowed by law. However we may decide not to grant access or make revisions where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the individual’s privacy in any given case, or when the rights of others would be violated by granting the access.

Is my Personal Information secured?

We use reasonable security measures to protect any Personal Information held by AMWA. We implement and regularly review various physical, procedural and technological safeguards that we believe will keep your Personal Information secure.

International guests

Rights of parents and children

Our Site is intended for general audiences, such as educators, parents, and the general public, but is not directed to children. If a child under the age of 13 were to use our Site, because our Site is designed for general audiences, the personal information collected from the child would be the same as that collected from adults, as described elsewhere in this Privacy Policy. Parents should be aware that our Site may include features by which our users may share content with others on our Site or via social media. If a child were to use these features of our Site, the child could potentially disclose personal information to other users of all ages via those services. Please be aware of any privacy policies of these third party social media sites before allowing your child to use them. If you believe that our Site has collected personal information from a child under the age of 13, please notify us so that we may delete the information from our Site and our records.

To the extent required by California Law, we permit minors under the age of 18 to request the deletion of any content or information that the minor has made available through our Site to other users of the Site. To request that information you have made available on our Site be removed, please send a letter or email to the address below with (i) your name, (ii) a complete description of the content you would like removed, and (iii) the web address(es) of the content you would like removed. Please be aware that our fulfillment of this request does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of the content or information you have posted on our Site.

Limitation of liability

By providing us with any Personal Information, you expressly and unconditionally release and hold us harmless, as well as our related companies and their respective members, directors, officers, employees and agents (collectively, the “Releasees”) from any and all liability for any injuries, loss or damage of any kind arising from or in connection with the use and/or misuse of your collected Personal Information. In addition, while we take reasonable steps to prevent third party companies from making unauthorized use of your Personal Information, we cannot be held liable for any injuries, loss or damage of any kind arising from or in connection with the use and/or misuse of your collected Personal Information by those third parties.

Changes to this policy

This policy may change from time to time. We will post the most current version of this policy on our Site with the effective date. Your continued use of the Site means you consent to the terms of any new Policy.
