Privacy Policy

Last updated: June 11, 2015

Cuseum Inc. ("us", "we", or "our") respects the privacy of our customers and other users of our website located at http://www.cuseum.com (the "Site"), the mobile application entitled Cuseum App (the "App") and the services that we provide (collectively with the Site and the App, the "Services").

This Privacy Policy explains how we collect the personal information of our customers and other users of our Services (collectively, "Users"), how we handle and protect that information, and what Users can do to help protect that information.

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time to accurately reflect how we gather and manage User information. All changes to this Privacy Policy are effective upon posting to the Site without notice. Your continued use of the Services after we post any modifications to the Privacy Policy will constitute your acknowledgment of the modifications and your consent to abide and be bound by the modified Privacy Policy.

By using the Services, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Unless otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy, terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings as in our Terms and Conditions, accessible at http://www.cuseum.com

Collection and Use of Personal Information

While using our Services, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to, your name, email address, mailing address or phone number ("Personal Information").

We collect this Personal Information for the purpose of providing the Services, communicating with you, responding to your requests/inquiries, and improving our Services. We may [sell or] share your Personal Information with our affiliates [and with other carefully selected companies that we believe offer services and products that would potentially be of interest to you]. [to be modified as needed if information will not be sold]

Collection and Use of Other Information

In addition, the Site and the App automatically collect certain anonymous information about you when you use the Services. For example, the Site automatically gathers information that your browser sends whenever you visit our Services. This information may include your computer's Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, browser version, information about how you navigate through and use the Services, and other statistics.

We also collect information through the use of Cookies. Cookies are files with a small amount of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a web site and transferred to your device. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. The Help feature on most browsers provides information on how to accept cookies, disable cookies or to notify you when receiving a new cookie. If you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some features of our Services.

With your permission, we may also collect your GPS or other location information. This information is helpful because it enables us to provide location-specific services to you, such as telling you about art or museums that are near you, or offering content or offers to you.

We also collect and use certain information that you provide when you use the Services, such as when you comment on a piece of art or an artist page, add an object to your favorites, share content from the App through a third party social network, follow a friend or museum, or use our contact importers.

We aggregate anonymous information received from you and from other users to generate statistics and other information. We analyze this information to determine how users use our Services and to find ways to improve our Services. We may use third party services such as Google Analytics to help us collect, monitor and analyze this type of information.

We also provide these statistics and the aggregated anonymous information on which the statistics are based to our museum and advertising partners as part of the services that we provide to those partners. These statistics and information contain no Personal Information.

We may also use the anonymous information we collect:

  • as part of our efforts to keep the Services safe and secure;
  • to protect our or others' rights or property;
  • to provide you with location features and services, like telling you and your friends when there is art that would interest you nearby;
  • to measure or understand the effectiveness of content or ads you and others see, including to deliver relevant content or ads to you;
  • to make suggestions to you and other users; and
  • for internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research and service improvement.

User Postings

Except as otherwise expressly described in this Privacy Policy, this policy only addresses the use and disclosure of Personal Information and other information we collect from you. In the course of your use of the Services, you may elect to post or otherwise disclose information about yourself on certain features that we may make available to users now or in the future that enable users to communicate with the public at large or with a group, such as comment areas, message boards, news groups, forums, communities, personal web pages, calendars or other features. Whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information on publicly-viewable web pages, that information will be publicly available and can be collected or used by others. Such postings may also appear on other websites or when searches are executed on the subject of your posting. Such activities are beyond the control of Cuseum Inc. and this Privacy Policy. You should therefore exercise discretion when disclosing any Personal Information or other information when using the public message boards.

Do Not Track Disclosure

Many browsers provide users with a Do Not Track (DNT) privacy preference. When DNT is activated by a user, the browser sends an automated DNT signal to website servers that inform those websites that the user does not want to be tracked.

At this time, the Site and the App do not recognize automated browser signals regarding tracking mechanisms such as DNT.

Service Providers

We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Services, to perform certain functions or provide certain services on our behalf, and/or to assist us in analyzing how our Services are used.

These companies and individuals will have access to the Personal Information only as necessary to perform their functions, and may not access or use it for any other purpose.

Communications

We may use your Personal Information to contact you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from us by following the unsubscribe link or instructions provided in any email we send.

Business Transaction

If Cuseum Inc is involved in a merger, acquisition or asset sale, your Personal Information may be transferred as a business asset.

Security

The security of your Personal Information is important to us, and we strive to implement and maintain reasonable, commercially acceptable security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of the information we store, in order to protect it from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification, or disclosure. For example, all Personal Information that you provide to us on the Site or the App is encrypted with secure server software to protect it from unauthorized access. We also have appropriate security measures in place within our database and physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of information that has been collected on the Site and the App. These measures include limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers, as well as electronic security systems and password protections which guard against unauthorized access.

However, please be aware that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure and we are unable to guarantee the absolute security of the Personal Information we have collected from you.

Links to Other Sites

Our Services may contain links to other sites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party's site. We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy of every site you visit.

We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services.

Children's Privacy

The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 ("COPPA") imposes restrictions on commercial websites, including ours. It is our policy to be compliant with the requirements of COPPA and not to solicit or collect personally identifiable information from any child under age 13 ("Child") without parent or guardian consent.

If you are a parent or guardian and you learn that your Child has provided us with Personal Information, please contact us. If we discover that a Child under 13 has provided us with Personal Information, we will delete such information from our servers.

Legal Compliance

Although we make every effort to preserve your privacy, we may need to disclose or provide access to your Personal Information if we have a good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with the law, such as in connection with a judicial proceeding, court order or legal process.
