The web site of the Palace Museum (hereafter referred to as "the Site" or "we") is strongly committed to protecting the privacy of its visitors. 

We undertake to ensure that all personal information in our possession is processed in accordance with the law of People’s Republic of China. We believe that maintaining privacy on the web is very important and we hope you will read this privacy policy carefully so that you will clearly understand both our commitment to you and your privacy and our method of collecting and using information.   

  We collect personal information (such as name, nationality, year of birth, gender, place of residence, telephone numbers, and email address) that you supply to us. Your information is collected when you request information from us, contact us, apply for museum volunteer, complete a survey, and register with us (in "My Museum"). This privacy policy only applies to data gathered on this Site (DPM.org.cn) and does not apply to any other web site. The Site may contain links to other web sites. Once you leave the Site, this privacy policy will not apply. A link to the privacy policy can be found on the Museum's  home page and on every page on the Site.

  You may use Dpm.org.cn without registering of submitting any personally identifiable information. However, we use this information you provide to send e-newsletters, contact you for answering inquires, announcing results of surveys and rewards of special activities, and improve the services both the Site and the Museum can provide. Personally identifiable information collected from the Site is never sold, rented, or shared with third parties for their marketing purposes (We may disclose your information to companies who, on our behalf, act as "data processors" and are required by contract to maintain the confidentiality and security of this information). We never share with third parties any personally identifiable information except as required by law.

  The Site automatically collects some non-personally identifiable information about you when you request pages through your browser. We place Cookies on the Site users' computers to collect aggregate information for web site traffic analysis, such as the number of users and the number of pages viewed (Cookies are small files that reside in a visitor's browser). The aggregate information we collect through cookies helps the Museum monitor how you and other users use the Site, allowing us to provide an optimal experience and better service. This information is never used to identify you personally. You may choose to set your browser so that it informs you of the placement of cookies.

  The Museum tries to respond to email messages expecting a response as soon as possible. If you send emails for inquiry, advice, or suggestion, your message and email address must be forwarded to the appropriate department within the Museum. The Museum may choose to save this information. 

  We are pleased to hear from you. However, any message, material, business information, ideas, concepts, or other information sent to us by email will be treated as non-confidential and non-proprietary.

  The Site may revise its privacy policy at any time. We encourage you to visit this page periodically to review our current policy so that you will always know what information we gather and how we may use that information.
