We will never sell, rent, or share any information collected in these surveys.
Emailing Us: If you email Minnesota Street Project, we may save your message and your email address and we may send you emails in order to respond to your message.

What Happens When You Share Our Content: Minnesota Street Project uses various third-party service providers to allow you to share our content with others. Any information you provide when using these tools is subject to the third parties’ respective privacy policies, over which we have no control.
Cookies: When you visit our website, we may place cookies on your computer or mobile device, unless you have expressly disabled this capability through the settings of your browser. The cookies placed by our website will not contain any personal information. Cookies placed by any third-party websites linked to by our website (including, for example, galleries located at our buildings, the online store for Minnesota Street Project Editions, and providers of ticketing services) will be governed by the privacy policies of those vendors.
Our Use and Disclosure of Information We Collect: Minnesota Street project uses the personal information you provide to us for internal purposes only.

We may also compile and provide aggregate statistics about our visitors to third parties, but these statistics will not include any personally identifying information.

If you have provided us with your email address, including during a purchase from Minnesota Street Project Editions or registration or purchase of tickets for a Minnesota Street Project event, we may send you e-mails in order to alert you to information, events, programs, or products provided or organized by the Minnesota Street Project. If you do not want us to use your e-mail address to contact you for these purposes, you may send an e-mail message containing your name and postal address to email@example.com with the word “unsubscribe” in the subject line.
We may combine information you give to us online, at our buildings, or at any other places where we interact with you. We may also combine or supplement this information with publicly available information and additional information we receive from or have cross-referenced with our third-party vendors and others. We use this combined information to enhance and personalize your experience with us and for other promotional purposes.
Security: Any time we request any personally identifiable information from you, other than your email address, we will employ industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology. Notwithstanding this commitment to protect your personally identifiable information from loss, misuse or alteration by third parties, there is always some risk involved in transmitting information over the Internet. There is also some risk that others could find a way to thwart our security measures. As a result, we cannot ensure or warrant the security and privacy of any information you transmit to us, and you do so entirely at your own risk.
