Privacy Policy

Overview

Thank you for visiting the Milwaukee Public Museum's website and reviewing our Privacy Policy. Your privacy is important to us at the Milwaukee Public Museum. The phrase "Personally Identifiable Information" in this policy refers to information or a collection of information you provide to us through the Internet that uniquely identifies you.

The Milwaukee Public Museum does not collect Personally Identifiable Information about visitors to our website unless you choose to provide that information to us, thereby giving us explicit permission to use that information to fulfill your inquiry, request, or order.

The Milwaukee Public Museum does not sell Personally Identifiable Information to outside parties. The Milwaukee Public Museum will not release e-mail addresses that you provide to us to outside parties. Names and addresses of Milwaukee Public Museum members are exchanged with other Milwaukee arts and cultural institutions once annually. You have the right to withhold your name and address information from this exchange. Beyond this one-time exchange of member names and addresses, the Milwaukee Public Museum will not release any Personally Identifiable Information about you to outside parties without your consent (except in exceptional circumstances where this may be required by law or to protect legal rights).

Collection and Use of Information by the Milwaukee Public Museum

The Milwaukee Public Museum's website will only collect Personally Identifiable Information which you knowingly and voluntarily provide by, for example, sending e-mails, completing membership forms, registering for classes, events or other programs, responding to surveys, or ordering merchandise. If you provide us with information, you are giving us explicit permission to use that information to fulfill your inquiry, request, or order. We may also use that information to contact you to provide information about Milwaukee Public Museum activities, programs, membership and development opportunities, products, and special events that may interest you.

When we provide you with such information by e-mail, mail, or phone, you will always have an opportunity to decline further communication. If you decide to opt-out of e-mail correspondence, please use the contact specified in the e-mail so that we can remove you from the list that contains your name.

Children and Privacy

The Milwaukee Public Museum is concerned about the privacy of children. The Milwaukee Public Museum does not knowingly solicit or collect any Personally Identifiable Information from children under the age of 13 through this website without parental permission. If a visitor known to be a child (under the age of 13) sends an e-mail to the Milwaukee Public Museum, we will only use it to respond to the writer and not create profiles or otherwise retain the information.
