Privacy Policy

Introduction:  The Norton Simon Art Foundation ("Foundation") is very concerned about protecting the privacy of visitors to its website (the "Site"). For that reason, the Foundation has made the commitment not to disclose any of your information to unrelated third parties without your consent. For your protection, the Foundation also has established the following Privacy Policy, which is meant to inform you of how information regarding your visits to the Site is collected and used.

Information Collected Automatically: When you visit the Site, certain information is collected automatically about your visit, such as the IP address from which you accessed the Site, the date and time of your visit and the pages you viewed. The Foundation uses this information to learn about its visitors, but no information that may identify you personally will be collected or tracked automatically.

In addition, the Foundation may use cookies to learn certain information about you. Cookies are pieces of data that the Site transfers to your computer's hard drive. Cookies allow the Foundation to customize the information provided on the Site according to your preferences and make your visit easier and more enjoyable. For example, cookies may store information about your computer's audio or video capabilities so you will not have to enter the information manually every time you visit the Site. Although a cookie cannot identify you, it can identify your computer. Your browser is likely to be set up automatically to accept cookies. If you would prefer not to accept cookies from the Foundation, you may adjust your browser's options or preferences. You still will be able to have full use of the Site.

Other Information: You may choose to provide the Foundation with personal information in an email message to an address provided on the Site or by completing a form that is available on the Site (such as the Reproduction Request Form).

Limited Disclosure of Information: The Foundation may disclose user information in special cases when it has reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be intentionally or unintentionally causing injury to or interference with the Foundation’s or a third party's rights or property. The Foundation also may disclose user information when the Foundation in good faith believes the disclosure to be required by law. The Foundation will not share your personal information with direct marketers without your consent. Certain Foundation service providers may have access to your personal information, but their use of such information is bound by terms at least as restrictive as this policy.

Children Under Thirteen Years of Age:  The Foundation does not solicit personal information from children on the Site and does not direct any marketing specifically for children. Visitors to the Site who are under thirteen years of age are reminded to obtain the approval of a parent or guardian before supplying any personal information to this Site specifically or over the web generally.

Revisions of Privacy Policy: The Foundation reserves the right to revise this Privacy Policy from time to time without notice by posting a revised Privacy Policy on the Site. You may always review the most updated version of the Privacy Policy by visiting this page. By continued use of the Site, you agree to such amended policy.
