The Andy Warhol Museum Online Privacy Policy
Last updated September 2 , 2010

This Privacy Policy only applies to the information collected online and does not include information collected by The Andy Warhol Museum through other channels (mail, telephone or onsite registration at The Andy Warhol Museum). By using the Museum’s online resources, such as, or, you agree, without limitation or qualification, to be bound by this Privacy Policy.

Any personal information that you supply to us through our on-line resources will allow The Andy Warhol Museum to appropriately respond to your requests and to provide a variety of services to you. Personal information includes such things as your name, address, telephone number, email address and other personal contact information. This information may be used by us to help develop content and improve our on-line resources to create the best experience for you as a user of the The Andy Warhol Museum web sites. Information that you may provide regarding your personal interests will allow us to provide materials and exhibits to suit your particular needs. Museum personnel may, for example, use the personal information you provide to customize offers and target communications.

The Information We Collect

The Museum’s web sites obtain only the personal information that you knowingly and voluntarily provide (including, but not limited to sending emails, completing membership forms, contributing content, registering for events or other programs, or responding to surveys) and by tracking information automatically collected through standard web technology practices (including IP address, browser type, domain names, cookies, access times and referring Web site addresses). Personal information may include, but limited to name, address, telephone number, and email address.

The Andy Warhol Museum is the sole owner of information you voluntarily submit to us. If it becomes reasonably necessary at any time, we will release the personal information that you have provided to comply with a court order, or protect the rights, property or safety of The Andy Warhol Museum, its personnel, and you and other the users of its sites. 

We may, from time to time, compile statistics on visitors to our web sites, including our members and potential members. In these situations, the information that you provide within these pages may be used to aggregate statistical information to analyze visitor interest. The information aggregated will not include any personal information as it relates to a single visitor. 

If you make a purchase on-line from any of our web sites, we will ask you to provide only the information necessary to process your order. For reasons of security, The Andy Warhol Museum does not store credit card information permanently on any Web server.

Opting Out

Under certain circumstances, The Andy Warhol Museum may share your personal information with third parties it has engaged to develop new content to the Museum’s programming and on-line resources. At various points in the information collection process of our online resources, you are asked to indicate whether you are willing to permit us to share personal information collected online with other organizations. You have the right to “opt out,” and not permit us to share your personal information. If you do opt out, the personal information you provide will not be shared outside of The Andy Warhol Museum.


Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. All information provided to us 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 The Andy Warhol Museum. The Andy Warhol Museum also protects account information by placing it on a secure area that is only accessible by certain qualified employees of The Andy Warhol Museum. While we strive to protect your information as much as possible, The Andy Warhol Museum cannot ensure or warrant the security of that information. 

Information from Children

The Andy Warhol Museum is concerned about protecting children’s privacy online and does not knowingly solicit or collect personal information from children under the age of twelve (12). Children should always ask parents/ guardians for permission before providing personal information to any web site or purchasing any products or services online. We urge all supervising adults to participate in their children’s exploration of the Museum’s on-line resources and to teach them about protecting their personal information while online. 

Changes to Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy may change from time to time. The Andy Warhol Museum reserves the right to change it without notice, so you should review it periodically. The date of the most recent version is posted at the top of the Privacy Policy page.
