Your privacy is critically important to us. At the Benjamin Creme Museum we have a few fundamental principles:
• We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
The Benjamin Creme Museum operates BenjaminCremeMuseum.org. It is the Benjamin Creme Museum’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.
Like most website operators, the Benjamin Creme Museum collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The Benjamin Creme Museum’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how the Benjamin Creme Museum’s visitors use its website. From time to time, the Benjamin Creme Museum may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
The Benjamin Creme Museum also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments. The Benjamin Creme Museum only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

In each case, the Benjamin Creme Museum collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with the Benjamin Creme Museum. The Benjamin Creme Museum does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
The Benjamin Creme Museum may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, the Benjamin Creme Museum may monitor the most popular posts on BenjaminCremeMuseum.org and may display this information publicly or provide it to others.

The Benjamin Creme Museum will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, the Benjamin Creme Museum discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when the Benjamin Creme Museum believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of the Benjamin Creme Museum, third parties or the public at large. The Benjamin Creme Museum takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If the Benjamin Creme Museum, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that the Benjamin Creme Museum goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of the Benjamin Creme Museum may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
