PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTION
Personal Information Collected
The Center has a strong commitment to internet privacy. We provide choices to the consumer in deciding when and how to provide different categories of "personally identifiable information" (e.g., data that may be used to identify, contact or locate a person such as name, physical address, email address and phone number and information you provide to help customize your web experience). In general, when you visit our Websites and access information, we do not require you to register or provide personal identifiable information to us. However, there are occasions when we will ask for additional information. For example, you may be required to register your name and email address or other necessary information in order to enter certain areas of the Websites such as to participate in surveys or special initiatives. It is your choice to provide such information, and you may opt-out from receiving any of this type of information in the future.
Internet Protocol and Cookies
We may keep track of your interactions with our Websites and our services to offer a more personalized experience through your Internet Protocol address or through the use of “Cookies” and web analytics services.
An Internet Protocol (IP) address is associated with the portal through which you enter the internet, like your internet service provider (ISP). Standing alone, your IP address is not personally identifiable. At times, we use IP addresses to collect information regarding the frequency with which our visitors visit various parts of our Websites. We may also combine this information with personally identifiable information, e.g., your name and address that you have provided to us and/or with other information that is publicly available or that we receive from other reputable sources in order to make our Websites and communications more targeted to your interests.
Webpage Sharing and e-Cards
If a user elects to share pages from our Websites with friends, colleagues or on social media sites, we ask for the recipient’s name and email address. The Center will automatically send the recipient a one-time message inviting them to visit a website. The Center uses the recipient's information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email, and the recipient information is not retained.
Personally Identifiable Information Contained in User Content
Some sections of our Websites may allow users to post or transmit messages, comments, screen names, computer files and other materials. We encourage your thoughts, stories, photos, but be advised that any content you submit to the Websites will not be returned to you and may be used by the Center in any manner we see fit, including reprinting it in full or in modified version on our Websites or elsewhere or using elements of it on our Websites. You will not be entitled to any remuneration for any use of your content by the Center.
You are solely responsible for the contents of your transmission through our Websites. The Center is not obligated to monitor such transmissions, and therefore cannot be responsible for any personally identifiable information or other information that may be contained in such transmissions. You agree not to transmit through the Websites any unlawful, harassing, libelous, abusive, threatening, or harmful material of any kind or nature.
USE OF INFORMATION AND PRIVACY CHOICES
Use of Personal Information
Use of Membership Information
On a selective basis, members of the Center may be selected to receive information via postal mail from other non-profit organizations, including state and local preservation organizations and occasionally for-profit organizations that we think may be of interest to you. You have the right to opt-out of these mailings.
Links to Third Party Websites
Subsidiaries, Affiliates and National Trust Historic Sites
The Center is a subsidiary of the National Trust for Historic Preservation in the United States (the “National Trust”) which has a number of subsidiaries, affiliates and historic sites that offer a wide range of products and services. We may share your personal identifiable information with the National Trust and its subsidiaries, affiliates and historic sites to inform you of the various product and service offerings in which you might be interested unless you opt-out of receiving such information. Most of the subsidiaries, affiliates and historic sites owned and operated by the National Trust are subject to the same opt-out rights that apply to use of personally identifiable information by the National Trust. The National Trust’s list of subsidiaries, affiliates, and historic sites includes the following:

The Center will share personal identifiable information with third parties if we have a good-faith belief that disclosing the information is reasonably necessary to:
- Meet applicable law, regulation, legal process, or enforceable governmental request;
- Detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues; and/or
- Protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of the Center as required or permitted by law.
SECURITY OF YOUR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION
All information provided to the Center 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 secure portions of our Websites that are only accessible by certain qualified employees of the Center. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.
If you do not wish to use our online payment services, payments and donations may be made by contacting our office by email, telephone or mail using the contact information listed below.
Some of the National Trust’s historic sites’ websites include links to online stores or for ticket sales that are operated by third party companies. You should review the credit card security information and the privacy policies of those third party companies before making a purchase.
