The Information We Collect
Under certain circumstances, we share mailing information collected, i.e. during registration processes online, over the phone, or in-person at the museums, with reputable organizations that are not related to Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh. If at any time you do not wish to allow us to share your mailing information with other organizations, you can call the Membership Office at 412.622.3314 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. By choosing to “opt out”, the mailing information that you provide will not be shared or used outside of Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh.
Online information provided to Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. We also protect account information by placing it on a secure portion of our site that is only accessible by certain qualified employees of Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information as much as possible, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of that information.

Information From Children
Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh does not solicit personal information from children under the age of 12. We are concerned about protecting children’s privacy and safety and will never intentionally ask a child 12 years old or younger to provide us with any personal information. It is our intention to discourage children 12 years old or younger from providing any personal information. Parents and guardians are asked to instruct their children not to provide any personal information in any requests they send to Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh. In the event that such information is sent to Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh, we will merely respond to the request, and we will not attempt to create a profile or otherwise retain the child’s information.
