If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our
site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be

will not be able to resume an order in the Corvette

Information Collection and Use
The National Corvette Museum (NCM) is the sole owner of the
information collected on this site. We will not sell,
share, or rent this information to others in ways
different from what is disclosed in this statement. The
NCM collects information from our users at several
different points on our website.
We request information from the user on our
order forms. Here a user must provide contact
information (like name and shipping address) and
financial information (like credit card number,
expiration date). This information is used for billing
purposes and to fill customer's orders. If we have
trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get
in touch with the user.
We will share aggregated demographic
information with our partners and advertisers. This is
not linked to any personal information that can identify
any individual person. We use an outside shipping
company to ship orders, and a credit card processing
company to bill users for goods and services. These
companies do not retain, share, store or use personally
identifiable information for any secondary purposes. We
partner with another party to provide specific services.
When the user signs up for these services, we will share
names, or other contact information that is necessary
for the third party to provide these services. These
parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable
information except for the purpose of providing these
This web site contains links to other sites.
Please be aware that the NCM is not responsible for the
privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our
users to be aware when they leave our site and to read
the privacy statements of each and every web site that
collects personally identifiable information. This
Privacy Statement applies solely to information
collected by this Web site.
If a user wishes to subscribe to our
mailing list, we ask for contact information such as
name and email address.
Surveys & Contests
From time to time The NCM's site requests
information from users via surveys or contests.
Participation in these surveys or contests is completely
voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or
not to disclose this information. Information requested
may include contact information (such as name and
shipping address), and demographic information (such as
zip code, age). Contact information will be used to
notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information
will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the
use and satisfaction of this site.
This website takes every precaution to protect
our users information. When users submit sensitive
information via the website, your information is
protected both online and off-line. When our
registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive
information (such as credit card number and/personal
information), that information is encrypted and is
protected with the best encryption software in the
industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our
order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers
such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet
Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or
open, when you are just ‘surfing'. While we use SSL
encryption to protect sensitive information online, we
also do everything in our power to protect
user-information off-line. All of our users'
information, not just the sensitive information
mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only
employees who need the information to perform a specific
job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer
service representative) are granted access to personally
identifiable information. Our employees must use
password-protected screen-savers when they leave their
desk. When they return, they must re-enter their
password to re-gain access to your information.
Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our
security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well
as any time new policies are added, our employees are
notified and/or reminded about the importance we place
on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our
customers' information is protected. If you have any
questions about the security at our website, you can
send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
At this time the NCM does not share information with any outside business.
Limitation on Liability
The NCM will not be liable for any direct,
indirect, special, punitive, incidental, exemplary or
consequential damages, or any damages whatsoever, even
if the NCM has been previously advised of the
possibility of such damages, whether in an action under
contract, tort, or any other theory, arising out of or
in connection with the use, inability to use, or
performance of the information, services, products, and
materials available from this site. These limitations
will apply notwithstanding to any failure of essential
purpose of any limited remedy. By using this site, you
waive any conflicting law and voluntarily consent to
these limitations of the NCM's liability.
