CRSM does not collect personal information about individuals, such as names and mailing or e-mail addresses, unless the individual visiting the CRSM Services knowingly provides it.

CRSM’s policy on collecting information on the CRSM Services

Children Twelve and Under
The CRSM Services are directed to a general audience, and CRSM does not solicit personal information from children. CRSM does not knowingly collect information from children under thirteen years of age except with parental consent or otherwise in accordance with applicable law.  When CRSM obtains parental consent, it will collect, use, and disclose the child’s personal information consistent with this Privacy Policy.  Parents can review or request deletion of their child’s personal information, and refuse to permit further collection or use of this information by contacting us at the contact information provided below.

CRSM’s policy on the use and disclosure of the information collected

CRSM uses the personal information you provide to us for internal purposes, such as analyzing trends and collecting statistics. With consent, we may publicly post the stories, pictures, and other content you provide to us.  CRSM may also compile and provide aggregate statistics about our visitors, customers, traffic patterns and related site information to third parties, but these statistics will not include any information that identifies you directly.

If you have provided us with your e-mail address, we may send you e-mails in order to inform you of events or activities at or related to CRSM that we believe may be of interest to you, or to alert you about sales or other promotional events at the CRSM Museum or Online Store. If you do not want us to use your e-mail address to contact you for these purposes, please email us and we will remove you from the list.

Third Party Links
The CRSM Services may include links to websites operated by third parties over which we have no control. Once you leave the CRSM Services, the CRSM Privacy Policy will not apply, and you access such sites at your own risk.

CRSM’s policy on the security of information collected

CRSM takes reasonable measures to protect the personal information you provide to us from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.  Keep in mind that no method of information transmission can be 100 percent secure.

Revisions to our Privacy Policy

Please note that CRSM may revise its privacy policy at any time, without prior notice, such changes to be effective immediately upon posting on the CRSM website. Such revisions may arise in response to changes in the law, policy, or other factors. We encourage you to periodically visit this page to review our most current policy.
