The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures (the Museum) stresses the importance of privacy and is committed to earning your trust by adopting high standards for the protection of your personal information.
This policy applies to the Museum’s website and outlines the type of personal information we collect and receive, the circumstances in which we collect or receive personal information, the policies and procedures we have established outlining its use and storage, and for sharing certain types of personal information in certain limited circumstances, the procedures you should follow if you have any questions or requests in respect of your personal information or our policies and procedures and the person to whom such questions or requests should be directed, and the means by which to communicate with that person.
