Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy applies to information the Tribe collects online through the Sites. Please note that, while reference may be made to information collected offline, this Privacy Policy is not a comprehensive statement of how information collected offline is obtained or used. In addition, you hereby acknowledge that this Privacy Policy is incorporated in the Terms and Conditions of Use that controls your use and access of the Sites.

I. WHY THE TRIBE COLLECTS PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION. The Tribe collects information in a variety of different manners for multiple purposes, including: (1) to help us continually improve the services we offer, (2) to improve the utility of the Sites, and (3) to provide you and other interested visitors with information about promotions and other materials through e-mail and other communications that we believe will be beneficial to you. We will not share, sell or transfer personally identifiable information about you to third parties to use for their own marketing efforts except as outlined below or with your approval.

II. HOW INFORMATION IS COLLECTED BY THE TRIBE.
A. NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION. On a regular basis, the Sites collect information about you that is not personally identifiable. Some examples of such information may include the type of browser you are using, what sites you came from, what pages of the Sites you visit, how much time is spent on those pages, and the pages from which you exit the Sites. In addition, the Tribe collects some non-personally identifiable information in the manners described below:
1. COOKIES. In general, when you visit the Sites, you remain anonymous unless you choose to provide information to us. The Sites do use “cookies,” i.e., very small text files sent to your computer, which temporarily reside in your computer’s hard drive. These cookies enable the Tribe to help your computer navigate through the Sites more quickly and allow us to better understand how visitors use the Sites. The Tribe does not use cookies to track what you do when you are not on the Sites or to collect personally identifiable information about you. These cookies do not damage or corrupt your computer or computer files. If you do not wish to receive the benefits of these cookies, you may set your browser to reject them. You should consult the instructions of your particular browser on how to do this. However, please be aware that rejecting the cookies could affect your ability to perform certain transactions on the Sites.
2. E-MAIL DISCLOSURE. Your personal information may be shared with reputable third parties but only for use in campaign delivery or to provide more relevant advertising. Your personal information may be combined with additional information provided by you at registration or augmented from other data sources in order to provide more relevant campaigns to you.
B. PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION. The Tribe does not collect personal information from visitors to the Sites in any non-obvious manner. In order to provide you with more effective and personalized service, the Tribe does, however, collect personal information such as names, addresses, e-mail addresses, credit card information, and other information in a variety of manners. The Tribe may also collect personally identifiable information about you from other online sources including, without limitation, e-mail inquiries sent by you to the Tribe, your response to special offers and promotions periodically offered through the Sites, and information you provide through other special features appearing on the Sites currently or in the future. The Tribe will use the information you provide to process your request and/or research your query. Click here to view our SMS/MMS Terms & Conditions. The Tribe will never share any of your personally identifiable data with any unaffiliated party without your express written consent, except as indicated herein.

HOW AGUA CALIENTE CULTURAL MUSEUM USES PERSONAL INFORMATION.
A. INFORMATION SHARING WITH SUBSIDIARIES AND AFFILIATES. Unless you have specifically limited how the Tribe may use your personally identifiable information, the Tribe will place that information into its database that may contain information we have collected about you via the Sites as well as offline and use it to send you future e-mails and correspondence about promotions, special events and/or other items we believe may be of interest to you. The information in this database is available to designated persons at the Tribe and its subsidiaries and affiliates including those that operate Agua Caliente Cultural Museum. The Tribe may use third parties to assist it with fulfilling your requests, forwarding you material, or similar functions. These third parties are under a contractual obligation to not use this information except for these limited purposes.
B. OPT-OUT CHOICES. If you prefer not to receive further emails from the Tribe, click on the “unsubscribe” link found on the bottom of all our email communications. If you prefer to not receive further SMS/MMS text messages, reply to any message you have received with any of the following terms: "stop", "end", "quit", "cancel", or "unsubscribe".

IV. SECURITY. The Tribe regularly reviews the security of the Sites. Although the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted to and from the Tribe via the Internet or e-mail cannot be absolutely guaranteed, the Tribe endeavors to create secure and reliable Sites for its visitors. The Tribe has invested, and will continue to invest, in high quality security in terms of access to information, data quality, and physical security of servers where information is stored. The Tribe implements a variety of security measures, including encryption and other measures against hacking or unauthorized access to protect confidential information such as credit card numbers, names, addresses, e-mail addresses, and any other personal information you may provide during your visit to the Sites from loss, misuse, interception and hacking. In addition, the information you provide is available only to qualified, designated persons at the Tribe, including those that operate Agua Caliente Cultural Museum, who are under an obligation to maintain the confidentiality of your personal information in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Nevertheless, when disclosing any personal information, you should remain mindful that, as with all e-mail sent via the Internet, your information may be intercepted without our consent by unscrupulous members of the public and, consequently, can be collected and used by others without your consent. In addition, third party web sites that are accessed through links on the Sites have separate privacy policies and security measures, and the Tribe is not responsible or liable for the practices, policies or security measures implemented on these third-party web sites. You hereby acknowledge that Tribe is not responsible for any intercepted information sent via the Internet, and you hereby release us from any and all claims arising out of or related to the use of intercepted information in any unauthorized manner.

V. LINKS. As noted above, the Sites may contain links to other web sites. The Tribe is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such web sites, and you are encouraged to view the privacy policies of these other sites as soon as you enter them.

VI. SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES. The Tribe reserves the right to disclose the personal information of the users of the Sites for any law enforcement purpose at the request of any law enforcement body or in response to a subpoena or as otherwise required by any court or administrative agency. We may also share such information at our discretion if it appears that your actions on the Sites are in violation of the Terms and Conditions of Use, and that disclosure of this information will assist in efforts to enforce the Terms and Conditions of Use or will assist the Tribe in connection with any legal proceeding between you and the Tribe. The Tribe may also provide email addresses to third parties for suppression purposes.

VII. SALE OF ASSETS. Nothing in this Privacy Policy is intended to interfere with the ability of the Tribe to transfer all or part of its business and/or assets (including the Sites) to an affiliate or independent third party at any time, for any purpose, without any limitation whatsoever. The Tribe specifically reserves the right to transfer personally identifiable information collected from its Sites to the buyer of that portion of its business relating to that information. You will be given the ability to opt out of continued use of your e-mail by any buyer of the site.

VIII. CHANGES TO THIS POLICY. The Tribe may change the features and/or content found on the Sites. Consequently, this Privacy Policy may change to reflect any new features and/or content. You should periodically revisit our Privacy Policy to be sure that you are familiar with our current policy. Your use and/or continued use of the Sites (following any modifications to this Privacy Policy) will be conclusively deemed acceptance of the terms of this Privacy Policy and any changes thereto.
