Our Policy

The National Museum and Center for Service respects the privacy of its online visitors and donors. 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 public areas of our site. National Museum and Center for Service only gathers personally identifiable data that is voluntarily submitted by the visitor, such as names, addresses, zip/postal codes and e-mail addresses.

Information Collection

The National Museum and Center for Service is the sole owner of the information collected on our website. We collect information from our visitors at several different points, and we do not sell or trade it.


We request information from the visitor on our donation form. A visitor must provide contact information (such as name, e-mail and mailing address) and payment information (such as credit card number and expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and for sending a receipt of the donation. If we have trouble processing a donation, we use the information to contact the visitor. Financial and credit card information is NEVER released.

Card Transaction Security

All communications initiated by embedded donation forms are hosted through secured Bloomerang forms that use Stripe Payment Processing to process all transactions. National Museum and Center for Service has partnered with Bloomerang to assist in securely processing transactions. To view Stripe’s full privacy policy visit

Other Sections

We request information from the visitor on our forms. A visitor must provide contact information such as name, email and address. We use this information for internal purposes only, and it is not shared with third parties.

Information Use



We store information that we collect through cookies and log files in order to create a profile of our visitors. A profile is stored information that we keep on individual visitors that details their viewing preferences. We do not share your profile with third parties.


A cookie is a piece of data stored on the visitor’s computer that is tied to information about the visitor. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. Once a visitor closes the browser, the session ID cookie terminates. A persistent cookie is a small text file stored on the visitor’s hard drive for an extended period of time. It enables us to track and target the interests of our visitors, in order to enhance the experience on our site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following Internet browser help file directions. If a visitor rejects cookies, he or she may still use every public part of our site. We do not share information gathered through cookies with third parties.

Log Files

Like most standard website servers, we use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track visitor’s movement in the aggregate and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are only linked to personally identifiable information when online credit card transactions are conducted (i.e., when donations are made). We do not share individual information gathered through log files with third parties.


Legal Disclaimer

Though we make a good faith effort to preserve visitor privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when we believe that we are legally required to do so (e.g., to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our website).


This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we, National Museum and Center for Service, have no control over and are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our visitors to be aware when they leave our site that they should read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.

Interactive Features

From time to time, our site requests information from visitors via interactive features, such as surveys or quizzes. Participation in these features is completely voluntary and therefore the visitor has a choice of whether or not they disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and e-mail), and information on the visitor’s interests. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site and providing pertinent information to participants. Visitors’ personally identifiable information is not shared with third parties.


If a visitor elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask the visitor for the friend’s name and email address. National Museum and Center for Service will automatically send the friend a one-time email with an introduction to National Museum and Center for Service and an invitation to visit the site. The one-time email will include the name of the person making the referral. National Museum and Center for Service stores this information for the sole purpose of sending a one-time e-mail and tracking the success of our referral program. The friend may contact National Museum and Center for Service at to request the removal of this information from our database.


This website takes many precautions to protect our visitors’ information. When visitors submit sensitive information via the website, their information is protected both online and off-line.

Our donation forms are provided by Bloomerang, who offers a secured donation processing platform. When our donation form asks visitors to enter sensitive information (such as credit card information), it is processed through Stripe Payment processing. To view Stripe’s full privacy policy visit

While we use a secured donation form to protect sensitive information online, we make every good faith effort to protect visitor information off-line. All of our visitors’ information, not just sensitive information, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who require the information to perform a specific job are granted access to data that is personally identifiable.

If visitors have any questions about the security of our website, they may contact us via email at

Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement so that our visitors are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.

If, however, we are going to use visitors’ personally identifiable information in a manner significantly different from that stated at the time of collection, we will notify visitors via e-mail and will not disclose the information unless express permission is granted. However, if visitors have opted out of all communication with the site or deleted/deactivated their account, then they will not be contacted, nor will their personal information be used in this new manner.
