Donations are processed through the third-party secure servers at PayPal, so your financial and other personal information will not be visible to others. Similarly, information provided on a membership application, or when signing up for periodic updates about special events at the Museum, will be encrypted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) before transmission.
2. Information retention:The Franklin Mineral Museum will not collect any personally identifiable information (such as your name, address, phone number or e-mail address) on our site unless you choose to provide it, for example by requesting membership in the Museum or by signing up for notices about special events. For donations and membership requests, the Museum will not retain any of your financial information once the transaction is complete. We will not rent, sell, exchange, or share your personal information with any other organization or person.
3. Information security: Any information you provide to us when applying for membership, making a donation, or signing up for periodic updates via e-mail will be stored in a secure database to which only designated employees have access.
