The Army Historical Foundation is committed to the safe storage of all personal information collected through our website. Personal information is only collected through our site when you voluntarily provide it, and it is only requested for processing transactions (e.g. museum ticket requests, online store purchases, donations). All third-party vendors who assist the Foundation with processing these online transactions are listed below. They are trusted industry vendors with their own safeguards in place for maintaining the privacy and security of your information. We have provided links to their privacy policies.
Donations and Commemorative Gifts
When you make a gift to The Army Historical Foundation using our website’s donation form, or order a commemorative gift (e.g. Commemorative Brick), the Foundation will ask for your name, email address, phone number, mailing address and payment information. This information will be used to process the transaction and provide updates on the processing. In cases when you order a replica of your commemorative gift, the information is used to mail the memento to the provided address.
After your transaction, your email and mailing address are added to our distribution lists for receiving periodic updates about the Foundation’s work and the National Museum of the United States Army. You may opt out of these contacts using the “unsubscribe” link on our email distributions, the return contact form in our postal mailings, or by calling customer service at 1-800-506-2672.
If you decide to join the Foundation as a member, you will also receive exclusive member updates and special invitations. Additionally, your contact information will be provided to the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) as part of a membership-sharing benefit.
U.S. Army Registries
The Foundation’s U.S. Army Registries allow users to create digital profiles of an Army veteran’s service, or the service of a family member, Army civilian, or Army working animal. To create an entry, you must create an account, which requires providing your email address. The only other requested information will be the name, Army service information (e.g. branch, rank), hometown and any additional service details you would like to voluntarily provide for the person you are honoring.
If you decide to make a purchase from the online version of the Museum Store, Events Network, LLC will ask for your name, email address, phone number, mailing address and payment information. This information will be used to process the transaction, provide updates on the processing, and mail you any purchased items.
Website Usage Tracking
The Army Historical Foundation collects anonymous information on how our users interact with our website through a small file saved to your browser called a “cookie.” This information does not identify you personally and no financial information can be transferred through these files. Instead, they are designed to provide us insights into how users find our website (e.g. if a user arrived to our site via a search engine), what pages of the website they visit, how long they spend on our site, where they were geographically located while visiting our website, the date/time they made their visit and the domain and IP address of their device (for determining how many unique visitors use our site versus repeat visitors). We use this analytical data to improve the performance of our website and broadly understand the audiences that we are reaching.
All anonymous data collected during a visit to our website is synthesized by a software program to provide reports of our users’ collective website experience. We do not use the data to track individual visits.
No personally identifiable information is collected through automation. Identifiable information is only provided voluntarily during your visit to our site.
