How We Use the Information You Provide
We use the information you provide to personalize the Museum’s website so that we can better meet your needs, fulfill your online order, facilitate customer service, and inform you of the Museum’s products and promotional offers. Our use of visitor information varies with the type of visit or transaction. For details about each transaction type, see Merchandise.
When You Shop Merchandise
Merchandise will ask you to provide personally identifiable information necessary to fulfill your online order, which may include your name, billing and shipping addresses, telephone number, and credit card number. This is the same information requested when you place an order by telephone. For online orders, we also require your email address so that you can receive order and shipping confirmation emails, and so that we can communicate with you should you choose to receive such communications.
When You Purchase Titanic Attraction Museum Tickets
The Museum will ask you to provide personally identifiable information necessary to process and service your ticket purchase, which may include your name, billing and shipping addresses, telephone number, email address, and credit card number. Your credit card information will be stored temporarily on a secure server and used only for processing your online transaction. We will not retain the credit card information you provided or any other personally identifiable information with the exception of your full name and email address for our records or on our servers. The Museum never shares the personally identifiable information you provide when purchasing tickets online, in person, or by telephone with third parties for marketing purposes, except as required by law.
We welcome your participation on our blogs. In order to participate, an email address is required to post comments. The Museum will not use these email addresses in any way, unless permission to do so is specifically requested and granted. We will not share these email addresses with any third parties for marketing purposes.
Email Communication Preferences
The Museum regularly sends email newsletters to our registered visitors, and, on occasion, may send emails to other individuals in order to inform them of special events or promotions. Email recipients may opt out at any time by following the "unsubscribe" instructions included in the email message. Website registrants may subscribe or unsubscribe at any time by changing their email preferences online. If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do we protect your information?
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personally identifiable information when you place an order or enter, submit, or access your personal information.
We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our payment gateway providers database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.
After a transaction, your personally identifiable information (credit cards, financials, etc.) will not be stored on our servers.
Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the sites’ and/or service providers’ systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information.
If you prefer, you can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies via your browser settings. Like most websites, if you turn your cookies off, some of our services may not function properly. However, you can still place orders over the telephone or by contacting customer service.
Do we disclose any information to outside parties?
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
Third party links
Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on our website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these third party sites.
California Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance
Because we value your privacy, we have taken the necessary precautions to be in compliance with the California Online Privacy Protection Act. We therefore will not distribute your personally identifiable information to outside parties without your consent.
Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance
The Museum’s Web site is not specifically dedicated to children and we do not actively solicit information from children ages 12 or under. Children age 12 or under are required to obtain permission from a parent or guardian before submitting information to this Web site.
