The Science Center uses its best efforts to respect the privacy of its online visitors. At our site, we do not collect personally identifiable information from individuals unless they provide it to us voluntarily and knowingly. This means we do not require you to register or provide information to us in order to view our site. The Science Center only gathers personally identifiable data, such as names, addresses, zip/postal codes, e- mail addresses, etc., when voluntarily submitted by a visitor. For example, personally identifiable information may be collected in order to respond to a stated desire to volunteer time to the Science Center or to make a financial donation online. This information is used solely by the Science Center or other entities who are involved in the operation of this site for internal purposes. Science Center lists are never sold to third parties. We will only share personally identifiable information with third parties when (i) the person submitting the information authorizes us to share it; (ii) sharing the information is a necessary operation of the site, for instance, to process a credit card transaction, or (iii) we are required to by law. The Science Center has no control over or responsibility for the data collection and use practices of third parties that process online donation credit card transactions.
The Science Center welcomes children to learn more about our organization and, where appropriate, find opportunities to serve their communities through Science Center programs and volunteer activities. However, we encourage this to be done only with their parent’s knowledge and supervision.
