Privacy policy

This is the website of The Morton Arboretum. The primary purpose of our site is to provide information about The Morton Arboretum, not to gather personal information. We do, however, gather some information that is described below. The information we collect is used to improve the content of our Web pages, and to notify consumers about updates to our website.

Information Gathered

For each visitor to our Web site, our Web server automatically recognizes the consumer's domain name. We collect the domain name of visitors to our Web site, for data reports only. Names provided by visitors to the Arboretum via the Arbormail feature on the website will receive periodic communications, but have the option to opt out of the service at any time.

Cookies

A cookie is a small text file that is created on the computer's hard drive that gives that user a unique, random ID. This ID enables the Web site to readily recognize each visitor on subsequent visits to the site. A cookie may indicate the preferences selected by a visitor on a prior visit and facilitate more efficient browsing on subsequent visits. We use cookies to store visitor preferences, record session information such as items that consumers add to their shopping carts or programs that a visitor registers for, and to record user-specific information on what pages users access or visit.

If you supply us with your postal address and/or email address online, you may receive periodic mailings from us with information on new programs or upcoming events. If you do not wish to receive such mailings, please let us know by sending an e-mail to unsubscribe@mortonarb.org. We do not partner with nor have special relationships with any ad server companies.

Changes to the Use of Information

From time to time, we may use customer information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our privacy notice. If our information practices change at some time in the future we will contact you before we use your data for these new purposes to notify you of the policy change and to provide you with the ability to opt out of these new uses.

Customers may prevent their information from being used for purposes other than those for which it was originally collected by sending an e-mailing or by calling us.

Security

When we transfer and receive certain types of sensitive information such as financial information, we redirect visitors to a secure server for the transfer of data. We have appropriate security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you at our site.
