How We Collect Personal and Non-Personal Information through Mount Auburn’s Website:
We collect two kinds of information about our online visitors through our website: non-personal and personal information.
The non-personal information we collect includes: the visitor’s browser type and operating system; area(s) of the Mount Auburn website visited; date and time of access; host or Internet service provider (ISP) information; and identification of the referring site (any site from which the visitor accessed the Mount Auburn site). We use this information to track the total number of guests visiting www.mountauburn.org and to guide our efforts to improve our website.
We collect personal information that can identify a visitor, such as name and address only when you voluntarily provide it, and we use that information solely for purposes that are clearly identified on our site.
Mount Auburn does not seek or knowingly collect personal information from children.
Mount Auburn may utilize pages that are password-protected and require registration. Personal information acquired through registration is kept confidential and will not be disclosed to third parties except as may be permitted or required by law. Depending upon your relationship with us, you may receive other privacy notices from us providing additional detail about our privacy practices.
We may offer blogs, online forums or other interactive feature on our websites that enable consumers to share information about our services or other issues of interest. You should be aware that any communications you submit or post to any such interactive features on our website may be viewable by other participants or users of our website. Therefore, you acknowledge and understand that you have no expectation of privacy or confidentiality in the content you submit for such interactive features, whether or not it contains personal information about you.

Security of Internet Communications:
The Internet is not a secure medium. We employ administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect personal information but cannot assume any responsibility for any harm, loss or damage you may experience from transmission of information by or to Mount Auburn Cemetery over the Internet.
