The Museum has not reviewed all of the sites linked to the Site and is not responsible for the content of any offsite pages or other sites linked to the Site. Linking to any offsite pages or other sites is at the user's risk.
We are not responsible for any injury or damage to any computer equipment belonging to any user of the Site, any User or any other person related to or resulting from use of the Site, viewing, playing or downloading any materials on or from the Site. Except as otherwise prohibited by applicable law, we expressly disclaim any warranty of any kind, including but not limited to warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement. We cannot guarantee and do not promise any specific results from use of the Site.
Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, our entire liability to you for any cause whatsoever, regardless of the form of the action, will at all times be limited to the amount paid, if any, by you to us for your use of the Site. Except in jurisdictions where such provisions are restricted, in no event will we be liable to you or any third person for any indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental, special or punitive damages, including lost profits arising from your use of the Site, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages.

The Project and the Museum will not sell, trade, or rent the personal information you provide us. We may compile and provide aggregate statistics about our visitors, traffic patterns, and related site information, but these statistics will not include any personally-identifying information. We may share the personal and aggregate information we collect with our affiliates and other sites operated by and for us. On a confidential basis, we may also share personal information with our corporate affiliates or consultants, or with third parties that perform a particular service on our behalf (such as general administration purposes for the Site). We may elect to share aggregate information with third parties for advertising and promotional purposes. If all or part of the Museum is sold, merged or is otherwise transferred to another entity, the information you have provided on or through the Site may be transferred to such entity as part of that transaction. We may also disclose personal information in response to legal process, such as a request by law enforcement, a court order or subpoena, or to protect the integrity of the Site if we believe that a user has committed unlawful or otherwise harmful acts.
The IP addresses of our users are collected only for the purposes of system administration and to report aggregate information to our corporate affiliates or consultants, or with third parties that perform a particular service on our behalf. We do not combine IP addresses with any personally identifying information, nor do we compile any session activity reports by IP address.
E-News: As a service, the Museum offers members, donors, friends, and on-line visitors the opportunity to subscribe to our online news bulletins, a service hosted by Constant Contact, which has agreed to use the e-mail address you provide only to send our e-newsletter to you. You may choose to unsubscribe at any time by following the instructions included on each e-newsletter.
This Site is hosted in the United States. If you are visiting from the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from United States law, please note that you are transferring your personal data to the United States and by providing your personal data you consent to that transfer and to our use of that information in accordance with this policy. When you provide personal data to us or our service providers or vendors, you consent to the processing of your data in the United States as the Site is operated in the United States.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES TREAT YOUR INFORMATION IN A MANNER THAT MAY BE SUBSTANTIALLY DIFFERENT FROM, AND LESS PROTECTIVE THAN, THE TREATMENT REQUIRED UNDER THE LAWS OF OTHER COUNTRIES AND JURISDICTIONS.

HOWEVER, THE FOREGOING WAIVER MAY NOT BE LEGALLY BINDING IN SOME COUNTRIES, SUCH AS THE MEMBER STATES OF THE EUROPEAN UNION. TO THE EXTENT IT IS NOT LEGALLY BINDING IN THE COUNTRY IN WHICH YOU ARE LOCATED, THIS FOREGOING WAIVER DOES NOT APPLY TO YOU.
5. Catalogue Raisonné Information: The Site operates as an online catalogue raisonné of all of the known paintings, drawings and lithographs, as well as all corresponding existing scholarship, of and concerning Fitz Henry Lane (the “Catalogue Raisonné”). The Fitz Henry Lane Online project (the “Project”) includes a group of individuals who have been designated by the Museum in its sole discretion as experts of the works of Fitz Henry Lane (“Lane”) to render opinions and to make determinations thereon of what works will be included in the Catalogue Raisonné and attributed to Fitz Henry Lane. Such opinions are subject to change over time, and no advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from the Project or from or through the Site shall create any warranty not expressly stated herein. (Please review the Submission Agreement for more information.)
7. Miscellaneous: This Agreement and any notices regarding the Site sent to you or posted on the Site, all of which are incorporated herein by this reference, contains the entire agreement between you and us regarding the use of the Site. Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid or unlawful, the remainder of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect unless such deletion materially frustrates the intent of the parties, in which case this Agreement will terminate.
We will attempt to respond to your questions or concerns promptly after we receive them.
