Privacy Policy

Last Revision October 31, 2013

Hubble Foundation ("we", "our" or "us") knows you care about the privacy of your personal information, and we treat it very seriously. This Privacy Policy ("policy") describes what information we collect and how it is used.


What does this policy cover?

This policy applies only to information gathered during your use of hubblefoundation.org, which contains some links to other web sites. The policy does not cover information collected by sites linked to from hubblefoundation.org. Such external sites will have their own policies regarding the collection and use of personal information. We encourage you to learn about these other sites' privacy and security policies before providing them with your personal information.


What is personal information?

Personal information is anything that specifically identifies an individual, such as a name, address, phone number, e-mail address, and credit card or other account number.


Personal information does not include "aggregate" information. Aggregate information is generic data we collect about how people use the site. It helps us understand trends, patterns, and user needs so we can improve hubblefoundation.org. In aggregate information, all individual user identities have been removed. It's totally anonymous.


What information does Hubble Foundation collect?

Hubble Foundation collects two kinds of information:


Information YOU provide:

This includes information you voluntarily send us on the CONTACT US page or GUEST BOOK, information you provide when you use the STORE page to place an order or the DONATE page to make a donation, and information you provide when you register to use the FORUM. If you participate in the FORUM then Hubble Foundation also collects the comments you add there. The only information we collect in this way is what you voluntarily provide on those pages. When you complete your donation or purchase by online payment, you are transferred to paypal.com ("Paypal"), the most reputable and secure online payment service provider we could identify. Your financial transaction is strictly between you and paypal. Paypal informs us of the amount you have paid, your order selections (sizes, colors, etc.), and shipping address. Paypal does not disclose any of your financial information to us (we encourage you to read Paypal's privacy policy for details of what information they do and do not disclose to us).


How is my personal information used?

We will only use your personal information to:

  • reply to a message you send us on the CONTACT US page


  • send you items you purchase using the STORE page


  • contact you to provide login information if you register by completing the registration form and clicking the REGISTER button on the FORUM page


Automatically collected information:

When you visit hubblefoundation.org, some information is automatically collected, such as your computer's Internet Protocol (IP) address, operating system, browser type, the time and date of your visit, and which pages on our site you visit. This information is automatically provided to us as part of the interface between your internet service provider and the hubblefoundation.org web server and does not include any personal information (such as name, email address, etc.) that identifies you.


How is automatically collected information used?

We use automatically collected information to get a feel for the information needs of our visitors. This helps us to organize the hubblefoundation.org content, services, and features to better respond to the needs and interests of visitors to this web site.


Who has access to information we collect?

We do not sell, rent, share, or otherwise provide any information we collect to any entity (person, business, or website) for any reason. This includes your personal information and information we automatically collect. The only exception is that we will disclose information if required to do so by a U.S. court of law (i.e., by subpoena, warrant, court order).


What are the conditions of use?

This Privacy Policy may be modified from time to time. The date of the most recent revision will appear at the top of this page. Your continued use of hubblefoundation.org will constitute your acceptance of any changes or revisions made to this Privacy Policy.

Hubble Foundation Honors Your Privacy.
