You may access the Site's home page and browse the Site without disclosing any personal data. In order to provide you with the intended user experience, however, we may collect personal information from this Site, from registration forms, registries, requests for email updates, membership forms, contact forms, online surveys, your correspondence, and other information that you may send us. The Site and the Center Devices do not seek to collect any information from children. We ask that children under 18 do not submit information to the Site and App, and those under 13 do not submit information on the Museum handheld. In accordance with the Federal Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we do not knowingly collect information from children. We encourage parents to participate actively in their children's internet experience.
When you check out or use a Center Device, we may collect certain information from you as necessary to manage an effective check out and use program for the Center Devices. By way of example, we may request your name, birth date, and information that may appear on a government-issued or otherwise trustworthy ID presented to effect a checkout. We will use information collected for these checkout and use purposes only for such purposes. How do we use your information?
We may combine the information we collect with information available from other sources, including information received from promotional partners or other third parties.
We may, from time to time, share certain personally identifiable information with unrelated third parties (e.g., retailers, marketers) to enable them to provide you with opportunities to learn of products or services in which you may be interested.
We may operate a mailing list to send you George W. Bush Presidential Center related news. This mailing list currently operates as an 'opt in' mailing list whereby subscribers add themselves to the list. We only send emails to addresses that have been subscribed to the list. If you wish to unsubscribe from the list please e-mail us at [email protected]shcenter.org. In addition, at your request, we may send pictures you take during your use of Center Devices, as well as other information collected using Center Devices, to you via email. We may request your email address in order to email you such visit-related information.
As noted above, we may use the information we collect from you through our web site to offer you products, services, and for other purposes such as delivering targeted content that may be of interest to you. If you would prefer not to receive future promotional materials from us, you may indicate your preference by updating your profile or by contacting us at [email protected].
We take every precaution to protect your personal information. In addition, we have strict security protocols in place to protect our customer database from unauthorized access, improper use or disclosure, unauthorized modification, and unlawful destruction or accidental loss. We only allow access to the customer database when absolutely necessary, and then under strict guidelines as to what use may be made of such details. We may ask you for proof of identity before disclosing any personal information to you. The security of your information, however, cannot be absolutely guaranteed, and we do not assume any liability for third party use of such information, whether obtained legally or illegally from or through this web site.
We always aim to improve the services we offer. As a result we may occasionally canvass our Site customers using surveys. In addition, visitors who use the Museum handheld device will have the opportunity to complete a survey following their tour experience. Participation in surveys is voluntary, and you are under no obligation to reply to any survey you might receive from us. Should you choose to do so, we will treat the information you provide with the same high standard of care as all other personal information.
