Privacy Policy

The Muncie Children’s Museum (MCM) is committed to safeguarding your privacy. Please read the following policy to understand how your privacy will be treated.  This policy may change without prior notice. Any changes will be posted here.


MCM’s website uses a technology tool called cookies, which are small text files that may be placed on your hard disk for record-keeping purposes. It is essentially your identification card and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. A cookie’s purpose is to tell the server that you returned to that web page. The use of cookies is an industry standard. At no time will the cookie reveal to others your name, email address, street address or telephone number (even if you have submitted this information to other areas of our website).  Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. If you’d prefer, you can set yours to refuse cookies. However, you will not be able to take full advantage of our website if you do so.

MCM’s website may contain links to other websites. Please note that when you click on one of these links, you are being redirected to a website administered by another organization. Please be aware that MCM is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of other websites. Accordingly, you should read the privacy policy of other websites, as their policies may differ from ours.

MCM’s website uses technology that automatically collects a wide range of statistical information (including IP addresses) about the use of our website to determine how visitors interact with the site. Taken by themselves, IP addresses are not considered personally identifiable information. Ultimately, this statistical information helps us modify and improve the website experience. We may provide access to these statistics to prospective partners and other third parties as needed to promote MCM, and for other lawful purposes.

Collecting and Use of Information

When interacting with our website or staff, you may provide some personally identifiable information. This could include, but is not limited to: signing up for programming, becoming a donor, requesting additional information, etc. MCM maintains this information in a database.

MCM may use this information to extend promotional offers (such as invitations to MCM events), solicit donations or to send administrative or service-related announcements (such as programming change notices).

MCM strives to protect the privacy of our visitors. We do not share our visitor, membership or donor information with any outside entities, except for those companies that we must work with to conduct our business. When we do work with such companies (for example, printers or advertising firms), we ensure that they, too, are committed to protecting the privacy of our visitors. MCM will not send any information, including emails, regarding any offers or advertisements from a third party

We may use or disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law, and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and to protect the rights, safety or property of others.

User-Created Content

If you elect to post information to a MCM-administered social media site, please be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit there is open to the general public and can be read, collected or used by other users. MCM is not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums and urges users to exercise caution before publicly posting any personal information.


MCM may photograph or videotape visitors for educational and promotional purposes. Attendance on museum property is implied consent for the use of visitors’ likenesses without compensation. If you do not want your image used, please avoid photographers and inform them of your desire.
