Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
MOCA uses the personal information you provide to us for internal purposes, such as completing and tracking your transaction, analyzing trends, and collecting statistics. MOCA may also compile and provide aggregate statistics about our visitors, customers, sales, traffic patterns, and related site information to third parties. Except as provided herein, the statistics shared with third parties will not include any personally identifying information.
We may share the names, postal addresses, email addresses, and social media accounts we receive from visitors, members and donors with other nonprofit organizations. If you do not want to have your information used in this way, you must send an email message containing your name and postal address to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Do Not Use Personal Data.” We may also share information about our members and donors with third-party vendors who help us analyze and understand our donor and membership base.
After you make a purchase on the MOCA online store, we may share your name and postal address—but not your email address—with other organizations or companies whose products might be of interest to you. The policies of these organizations and companies may differ from ours. If you do not want to have your information used in this way, you must send an email message containing your name and postal address to email@example.com with the subject “Do Not Use Personal Data.”
If you have provided us with your email address, we may send you emails in order to alert you to information, events, activities, or programs at or related to MOCA that we believe may be of interest to you, or to alert you about MOCA store sales or other promotional events at MOCA. If you do not want us to use your email address to contact you for these purposes, you must send an email message containing your name and postal address to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Do Not Use Personal Data.”
We may combine information you give to us online, offline, in our stores, through your membership or donation, at any of MOCA’s physical locations, or through our catalogs. We also may combine or supplement this information with publicly available information and additional information we receive from or have cross-referenced with our third-party vendors and others. We use this combined information to enhance and personalize your experience with us; to communicate with you about ways to donate to the museum, products, exhibitions, or events that may be of interest to you; or for other promotional or MOCA-related purposes.
Use of Outside Vendors
MOCA retains qualified third-party service providers to help us manage the MOCA website and allow us to better serve our visitors and customers. These include third-party contractors who assist us by processing registration and ticketing for MOCA and for certain events or courses. We also engage third-party vendors to analyze the information we collect on the MOCA website and through other resources for marketing or similar purposes. We also use third-party service providers to process your payment transactions and detect possible fraudulent use of a payment card. These service providers receive the information you enter into our website, and information about your payment card, purchase, mobile device, computer, software and their location for fraud detection purposes. You agree to the disclosure of your personal information to these third-party service providers for this purpose. MOCA requires its vendors to maintain the security of the information to which they are provided access and restricts the vendors from using the information in any way not expressly authorized by MOCA.
Although MOCA requires its third-party vendors and service providers to maintain the security of the information to which they are provided access and restricts the vendors and service providers from using the information in any way not expressly authorized by MOCA, MOCA cannot guarantee, and is not liable for, the security of its third-party vendors and service providers. You agree to release MOCA of all liability for (i) any breach or flaw in the security of the information systems of the third-party vendors and services providers; and (ii) any misuse or misappropriation of your personal information by any of the third-party vendors and service providers.
The MOCA website uses various measures designed to secure information. If you prefer, you may also place a MOCA Store order by phone at (213) 621-1710. For membership gifts, and donations, you may call (213) 621-1794.
Be sure to use a known and trusted secure connection and to log off when finished using a shared computer. Be aware that there is always some risk involved in transmitting information over the Internet. There is also some risk that others could find a way to thwart our security systems. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security and privacy of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
Please be advised that when placing an online order through the MOCA online store, your personal data will be protected in accordance with United States law, but may not be given the same level of protection legally required in the European Union.
DESPITE OUR REASONABLE EFFORTS TO PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION, WE CANNOT ENSURE OR WARRANT THE SECURITY OF ANY INFORMATION TRANSMITTED TO MOCA AND ALL PERSONAL INFORMATION YOU DISCLOSE TO US IS AT YOUR OWN RISK.
