How the Museum Uses Information Provided by Visitors
The Brooklyn Museum uses the information you provide to fill your online order, facilitate customer service in the Brooklyn Museum Shop or in the Membership department. If you decide to utilize our MailChimp option, the Museum will use your information to provide you with updates about exhibitions, programs, and special offers available to you.
Any personally identifiable information voluntarily provided by you will be used for the purpose(s) for which the information was provided and may be shared with other carefully screened reputable organizations or companies whose products and services might interest you but whose privacy policies may differ from the Brooklyn Museum's. Your personally identifiable information will not be disclosed or used for purposes other than those specified without your consent, except as authorized by law.
If you prefer not to have your personally identifiable information shared this way, you may indicate this at the time you provide the information. If an "opt-out" option is not offered, or you decide after you have provided this information that you do not want us to share your information with any other organization, you may send us an email requesting that we not share your personally identifiable information with third parties for marketing purposes. We cannot, however, remove your name from any third-party list; you will have to contact them directly.
If you sign up for or subscribe to an email newsletter, discussion list, or special interest alert, you will receive the information that you have requested; you have the option of unsubscribing or removing your name from the list at any time. By providing this information, you may receive occasional email messages from the Brooklyn Museum or other organizations, for marketing and promotional purposes.
The Museum tries to respond to email messages requiring a response, including customer service inquiries related to purchases in the Museum Shop, within one week. If you email the Museum, your message and email address will be forwarded to the appropriate department within the Museum. Any message, material, business information, ideas, concepts, or other information sent to the Museum by email will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary. Your email address will not be used for any other purpose but to contact you if needed.
Brooklyn Museum Commentary Feature (The Posse)
It is required that you provide your email information in order to be a member of the Brooklyn Museum Posse. The email address you provide will not be used for any other purpose but to contact you if needed. Your submissions (commenting, tagging), when using the Posse, must follow our comment guidelines and may be edited for clarity. We reserve the right to decide not to post your comments. You may be contacted regarding your comments. Your comments may be reused.
