The Long Island Maritime Museum Privacy Policy

The Long Island Maritime Museum (LIMM) is committed to maintaining your confidence and trust, and accordingly maintains the following privacy policy to protect personal information you provide.

LIMM's Commitment to Security
Physical, electronic and managerial procedures have been employed to safeguard the security and integrity of personal information. The LIMM will encrypt billing information wherever it is requested. Personal information is accessible only by staff and volunteers designated to handle complaints or requests. All agents and contractors of LIMM with access to personal information obtained on the LIMM web site are also bound to adhere to this policy as part of their contract with LIMM.

Personal Information that the LIMM May Collect Online
LIMM collects the following types of personal information: names, postal and e-mail addresses, phone and facsimile numbers, billing information, and complaint information. LIMM may also collect business information from sole proprietorships that apply for membership or program participation, some of which might constitute personal information, as well as personal information from individuals acting solely in their business capacity. LIMM does not knowingly collect or maintain any personal information from children under the age of 13. In addition, no part of our site is designed with the purpose of attracting any person under age 13.

How LIMM May Use Personal Information Collected Online
Unless you consent otherwise, the LIMM will use your personal information only for the purpose for which it was submitted, such as to replying to inquiries, processing billing and business requests related to program participation or accept online donations. We will use such information to provide operational notices, in program recordkeeping and to conduct research on donation practices. Our research may lead to the publication of aggregate demographical data but will not result in the reporting or publication of any personal information provided to us. At certain points where personal information is collected on our site, there may be a box where you may indicate you would like to be on a list to receive information about LIMM programs, announcements and services and about ways to support the LIMM. At any time you can add or remove your name from our mailing list by contacting us at limm@limaritime.org

How Your Information May Be Shared
The LIMM never sells or rents personal information. We will release personal information under the following circumstances:

  • Where release is required by law (for example, a subpoena) or regulation, or is requested by a government agency conducting investigations or proceedings;
  • Where an audit of our records indicate a company may be engaged in fraudulent activity or other deceptive practices that a governmental agency should be made aware of;
  • To appropriate persons, where your communication suggests possible harm to others or to the safety and security of the LIMM, it's collections or the buildings or the grounds of Suffolk County.

Help Us Keep Your Personal Information Accurate
