The Chicago History Museum places utmost importance on the security of all personal information submitted when you make a purchase on our website. Please be assured that we have security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of any information we receive from you.
As with any transmission over the Internet, however, there is always some element of risk involved in sending personal information. In order to minimize this risk, we encrypt all information that you submit to make a purchase on our website using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol. This advanced encryption technology makes personal information unreadable as it travels over the Internet. You can see when the SSL protocol is in use by looking for a yellow padlock icon somewhere in your browser frame. If you click on this padlock icon, it will show you the certificate information that verifies the identity of the computer you submit your information to.
The Chicago History Museum respects the privacy of our online visitors, and we are committed to protecting the privacy of the users of our website. When providing any personal information to us, your name and contact information will be used by the Chicago History Museum to send information directly related to our organization. We will never sell your personal information to any companies or other organizations.
