The Heard Museum is committed to protecting the privacy of our website visitors and clients. We uphold the highest industry standards in online privacy and permission marketing. For more information about how the Heard Museum enforces permission-only email marketing to our clients, please see our Anti-spam Policy.
The Heard Museum’s website uses security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. We store the information in a database in a secure environment at our data center .
We will never share, sell, or rent individual personal information with anyone without your advance permission or unless ordered by a court of law. Information submitted to us is only available to employees managing this information for purposes of contacting you by email to provide information you have requested.
Our members and their subscribers are given the opportunity to ‘opt-in’ to having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for the information.
Users of our site will always be notified if their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this to ensure that our users can make an informed choice as to whether or not they should proceed with services that require an outside party.
The Heard Museum uses Google Analytics to track our visitor statistics. In accordance with our agreement with Google, we will not merge any personally-identifiable information with non-personally identifiable information collected through any Google analytic protocol, advertising product or feature unless you give us prior consent (i.e., opt-in to receive email communications from us) to that merger.
The information we collect includes: numbers of unique visits, pages visited, duration of visit, conversion [purchase of any product or products on heard.org or heardshops.org], the Internet browser used to access the Web, country of origin, language, how visitors access heard.org [organic search, referral from another website, etc.] and number of new vs. returning visitors. This information is reported to us in an aggregate format, and no personally-identifiable information is reported to us.
If you do not wish to have this information tracked, please visit this webpage for information about how to opt out of Google Analytics tracking.
At times we will use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website. We also may track browser types to help us understand our visitors’ needs related to our website design.
There is an optional section of our website where input forms require your name and email address. This form provides the ability to opt-in to receiving future emails of any sort from the Heard Museum. If you opt-in to receiving email communications from us, then we may send information to you on our products or services.
You may review and change your information with us at any time by clicking on the “modify profile” link or similar found at the bottom of emails sent via our system, or by contacting us at email@example.com.
In order to determine a user’s ability to receive HTML email in addition to whether or not an email has been opened, the Heard Museum includes a “web beacon” in a majority of the HTML email messages we send. A web beacon (actually a small .gif image) is activated when an HTML email is opened via a request for the image on our servers.
This capability helps the Heard Museum send email in a format users can read and enables the Heard Museum, and our clients that use the functionality, to track the aggregate number of emails opened. The web beacon does not collect any personally identifiable information. Users that do not want to receive email messages with web beacons can choose to receive their emails in text (non-HTML) format.
We also use, and provide our clients with, the capability to track when a URL has been clicked inside of an email message sent by our system. We use this functionality to track which links were clicked and in what quantity, as well as the aggregate number of links clicked. This click tracking functionality does not collect any personally identifiable information.
Client-side cookies are used to verify the login status of customers using products or services linked directly with our website. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site; however, the user may not be able to access all areas of our site.
The Heard Museum is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any other websites to which we link.

The Heard Museum, Inc. (“the Heard Museum”) adheres to the Safe Harbor Principles published by the U.S. Department of Commerce (the “Safe Harbor Principles”) with respect to personal information (as defined below) it receives from the European Union.
This notice outlines our general policy and practices for implementing the Safe Harbor Principles, including the type of information to which this notice applies, how we use personal information, and the choices individuals have regarding our use of, and their ability to correct, that personal information. If there is any conflict between the policies in this notice and the Safe Harbor Principles, the Safe Harbor Principles will govern.
This notice applies to all personal information we handle, including on-line (except as noted below), off-line, and manually processed data. For purposes of this notice, “personal information” means data that:
“Sensitive information” is a subcategory of personal information. Sensitive information is defined as personal information specifying medical or health conditions, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, or the sex life of the individual. Sensitive information also includes personal information received from a third party where the third party treats and identifies it as sensitive.
We notify individuals about the personal information we collect from them, how we use it, and how to contact us with privacy concerns. We obtain personal information only as permitted by the Safe Harbor Principles or with the consent of the individual affected. Consent for personal information to be collected, used, and/or disclosed in certain ways may be required in order for an individual to obtain or use our services. To the extent permitted under the Safe Harbor, we reserve the right to process personal information in the course of providing professional services to our clients without the knowledge of individuals involved.
We do not disclose personal information to third parties, except when one or more of the following conditions is true:
We will comply with the Safe Harbor Principles with respect to disclosures of sensitive information, including, when applicable, obtaining the explicit consent of the individual prior to disclosing sensitive information to a third party or using sensitive information for purposes other than those for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. Transfers of information permitted under this notice, either to third parties or within the Heard Museum, include the transfer of data from one jurisdiction to another, such as transfers to and from the United States of America.
We employ physical, electronic, and managerial measures, including education and training of our personnel, designed to provide the personal information in our possession with reasonable protection from accidental loss or destruction, improper use, alteration, or disclosure. Personal information collected or displayed through a Website is protected in transit by industry standard encryption processes. However, we cannot guarantee the security of personal information accessible on or transmitted via the Internet.
We process personal information in ways compatible with the purpose for which the personal information was collected, or as otherwise authorized by the individual. To the extent necessary for such purposes, we take reasonable steps to make sure that personal information is accurate, complete, current, and otherwise reliable with regard to its intended use.
If an individual becomes aware that personal information we maintain about that individual is inaccurate, or if an individual would like to update or review his or her personal information, the individual may contact us using the contact information below. As a security precaution, we may request that the individual provide identifying information such as name, address, birth date, and/or social security number. In addition, we may limit or deny access to personal information where providing such access would be unreasonably burdensome or expensive in the circumstances, or as otherwise permitted by the Safe Harbor Agreement. In some circumstances, we may charge a reasonable fee, where warranted, for access to personal information.
We established a program to monitor our adherence to the Safe Harbor Principles and to address questions and concerns regarding our adherence. This program will include a statement, at least once a year, signed by our authorized representative, verifying our adherence to the Safe Harbor Principles. We encourage interested persons to raise any concerns with us using the contact information below.
With respect to any dispute relating to this notice that cannot be resolved through our internal processes, we will cooperate with competent European Union data protection authorities and comply with the advice of such authorities. In the event that we or such authorities determine that we did not comply with this notice, we will take appropriate steps to address any adverse effects and to promote future compliance.
We may amend this notice from time to time by posting a revised notice on this Website, or a similar Website that replaces this Website. If we amend the notice, the new notice will apply to personal information previously collected only insofar as the rights of the individual affected are not reduced. So long as we profess to adhere to the Safe Harbor Principles, we will not amend this notice in a manner inconsistent with the Safe Harbor Principles.
We are committed to following the Safe Harbor Principles for all personal information, as that term is defined herein. Other information we receive may be subject to policies that may differ in some respects from the policies set forth in this notice. Certain of our Websites have their own privacy policies that apply specifically to those Websites. Those policies may be accessed through the websites in question. Information relating to present or former the Heard Museum personnel is subject to our policies concerning personnel data privacy, which are available to present and former the Heard Museum personnel upon request. Information obtained from or relating to clients or former clients is further subject to the terms of any privacy commitment made to the client, any agreements with the client, and/or any applicable laws and professional standards.
