MAHA’s policy on collecting information on the Site
Online Memberships and Donations
When you sign up for a MAHA membership or make a donation to MAHA online, we will ask you to provide us with the information we need to process your membership and/or to acknowledge your contribution. This information includes your name, billing and mailing addresses, telephone number, e-mail address, and credit card information. Your credit card information will be stored temporarily on a secured server and used only as needed to process your transaction. We will retain your personally identifiable information for our records, in order to facilitate better customer service.
You may use the Site without registering or submitting any personally identifiable information. Registration for members and volunteers on the Site enables you to maintain your contact information and preferences, sign up to serve as volunteers at our events and receive notifications about events that interest you. You will be asked to provide personally identifiable information that may include a user name and password, your name, and an e-mail address. We store this information on a secure server so that you need not re-enter it when you return to the Site. You may review or change your account information on the My Account page at any time.
From time to time, MAHA may invite you to participate in surveys posted on the Site or sent to you by e-mail. You may decide whether or not you wish to complete such surveys, which may ask about your religious background, occupation, or similar questions. We use this information to help us better understand our audience, which in turn allows us to better meet your needs and interests. Information collected in these surveys is never sold, rented or shared with third parties for marketing purposes.
MAHA will occasionally offer visitors the opportunity to participate in online contests or sweepstakes. If you choose to enter, you may need to provide your name and e-mail address so that we may contact you in connection with the contest. We may also request that you provide us with certain other information, such as your address, telephone number, age, and education background.
Children Twelve and Under
MAHA does not solicit personal information from children. Visitors twelve years of age and under should remember that they are required to obtain an adult’s permission before submitting any personal information to this or any other website.
As a service, MAHA offers visitors to the Site the opportunity to subscribe to our online newsletters, a service hosted by a contractor that has agreed to use the e-mail address you provide only to send E-News to you. You will receive MAHA E-News on the topics you choose or general MAHA E-News.
MAHA offers its online visitors the opportunity to send e-cards featuring works in the MAHA collection or which are otherwise of interest. If you choose to use our e-card service, you will need to provide your name and e-mail address, as well as the recipient’s name and e-mail address. E-cards will be stored for pickup for a period of thirty days. We will not share these e-mail addresses with any third party for marketing purposes.
If you email MAHA, your message and email address may be saved and we may send you emails in order to respond to your message. Any material, business information, ideas, concepts or other information sent to MAHA by email will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary. We will only use the information provided in your e-mail and your e-mail address to improve the Site, services and products and to fulfill or respond to your requests for products, services or information.
