Privacy

The Museum will not intentionally disclose any personal information about you as an individual user (such as your name, street address, telephone number, credit card number, or email address) to any third party without having received your prior permission.

THIRD PARTY PARTNERS

The Breman uses the services of reputable third-party vendors in order to provide certain services to its online users, including membership, donation processing, the online shop, and its e-mail newsletters. The Museum has taken precautions to insure that the privacy of its online visitors is protected by our 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.

SECURITY

The Breman protects personal and non-personally identifiable information that it receives via the Internet against unauthorized access.

In addition, the Museum's Web site and third-party vendors use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption to process online transactions, such as purchases made through the online store and donations. By using this technology, online customers can feel confident that their personal information is protected from interception by a third party. Sensitive credit card information is not permanently stored on any Breman Web server and though your order information is retained for our records, this information is not shared with other companies or persons except as needed to process your transaction.

What is a secure connection?
When a secure connection is established between your browser and a Web site, any data that is transferred over the connection will be encrypted to prevent it from being viewed by a third party. Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption, the standard for most browsers and servers, makes it very difficult for anyone to intercept or decode messages exchanged over this type of secure connection.

Browsers such as Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer display an image of a locked padlock in their status bar when connected to a secure site. Secure transactions are also indicated when the prefix in the location bar of your browser switches from http:// to https://. If you do not see the padlock at the bottom of your browser's window, if the padlock is unlocked, or the protocol in the location bar is not listed as https://, then any data exchanged with the Web site is potentially visible to others.

Depending on your browser, you may be able to view authentication information about a secure page by double-clicking on the locked padlock in the status bar. For more information on how your software establishes a secure connection, see the help files for your particular browser.

INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE

The Breman does not collect any personal information about individuals—such as names and postal or email addresses—except when such information is knowingly provided to the Museum.

Personal information may be obtained from online transactions as detailed below. Additionally, personal information may be transmitted as part of a form submission or in connection with other activities, services, or resources made available on our site. Any personal identification information retrieved by the Museum must be voluntarily submitted by the user.

Museum Membership and Donations
In order to purchase a Museum membership or to donate to the Museum at this Web site, you are required to give contact information (such as name and email address) and financial information (such as credit card number and expiration date). We use this information for billing purposes and to contact you about the Museum services in which you have expressed interest.

Breman Online Shop Orders
If you purchase a product or service from us, we request certain personally identifiable information from you on our order form. You must provide contact information (such as name, email address, and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number and expiration date).

We use this information for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we will use this information to contact you.

If you wish to subscribe to our e-newsletter(s), we will use your e-mail address to send the newsletter to you. Out of respect for your privacy, we provide a way for you to unsubscribe. We do not sell or share e-mail lists.

The information provided to the Museum using the online Contact Us form is used for responding to your comments and inquiries and will not be used for any other purpose without your prior notice and consent.

Aggregate Information (Not Personally Identifiable)
The Museum's Web site does collect some anonymous "non-personally identifiable" aggregate 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 our site, allowing us to tailor our services for the majority of visitors. Non-personally identifiable information may refer to information about our visitors' browsers (e.g., Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer), operating systems (e.g., Windows or Macintosh), Internet Service Providers, and other similar information.

The Museum's Web site collects IP addresses as a component of the non-personally identifiable aggregate information. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer by a Web server when you're on the Internet. 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.

Any personal information provided to The Breman is maintained and accessible only by the Museum unless the Museum explicitly states otherwise.
