Welcome to this website, a service of Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico, Inc. “MAPR” or “we”). This statement discloses the privacy practices for this website only, including an explanation of the categories of personally identifiable information about you that may be collected; how such information is used; with whom such information may be shared; the choices available to you regarding the collection, use, and distribution of the information; the security procedures that are in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of information; how you can review and request changes to the information; and how we notify visitors and users of this website of changes to this privacy statement.

Information Collection and Use

Information about Children: We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 nor do we wish to collect any such information.  Federal law requires website operators who collect personal information from children under the age of 13 to first get parental consent, and children should always get permission from their parents before sending any information about themselves over the Internet, to us or to anyone else.

Categories of Personally Identifiable Information We Collect

The information that may be collected by MAPR through this website falls into two categories: (1) information voluntarily supplied by visitors to and users of this website and (2) tracking information recorded as visitors and users navigate through this website.

To make use of some features on our website, visitors and users may need to register and provide certain personal information. The information you supply will help us offer you more personalized features and tailor our website to your interests.  Our systems will remember some of this information the next time you log on to and use our website, but you can always review and change your information by going back to the pages where you originally entered it.

Supplying personally identifiable information is entirely voluntary. However, if you choose not to supply this information, we may be unable to provide you with the products and services we make available to other visitors to our website or you may be unable to order or apply for selected products or services over our website.  When you submit any personally identifiable information over this website, MAPR (i) will use the information for the purposes described at the time you submit it and (ii) may use the information to contact you to make you aware of other products and services that may be of interest to you.  If you want to remain completely anonymous, you’re still free to take advantage of the publicly available content on our website without registration.

Categories of Persons or Entities with Whom We Share Personally Identifiable Information

We consider the personally identifiable information contained in our business records to be confidential.  We may sometimes disclose personally identifiable information about you to others who work for us.  We may also disclose personally identifiable information about you to service providers and vendors and to others who provide products and services to us.  Finally, we may be required by law or legal process to disclose certain personally identifiable information about you to lawyers and parties in connection with litigation and to law enforcement personnel. 


To help make our website more responsive to the needs of our visitors, we invoke a standard feature of browser software, called a “cookie,” to assign each visitor a unique, randomly generated number that temporarily resides on your computer. The cookie itself doesn’t actually identify the visitor, just the particular computer session that a visitor uses to access our website.  Unless you voluntarily identify yourself, we won’t know who you are, even if we generate a cookie for your particular website session.  The only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply.

We use cookies to help us tailor our website to your needs, to deliver a better, more personalized service, and to remember certain choices you’ve made so you don’t have to re-enter them. We may use cookies to track the pages on our website visited by our users, so that we can build a better website for our users. Of course, you can set your browser not to accept cookies, but if you do, you may not be able to take advantage of the personalized features enjoyed by other visitors to our website.

In connection with the standard operation of MAPR’s systems, certain non-personally identifiable information about visitors to this website may be recorded. This information is used primarily to tailor and enhance visitors’ experience using the website.  We may use this information in an aggregate, non-personally identifiable form to, among other things, measure the use of our website and determine which products and services are most popular with visitors.

Other Websites

To make our website more valuable to our visitors, we may offer some features in conjunction with other providers.  Our website may also include links to other websites or advertisers whose privacy policies we don’t control.  Once you leave our website (you can tell where you are by checking the address --known as a URL-- in the location bar on your browser), use of any information you provide is governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the website you’re visiting, and such policy may differ from ours.  


The security of your personal information is important to us.  All information gathered on our website is stored within a MAPR-controlled database accessible only to MAPR and its specifically authorized contractors. However, as effective as any security measure implemented by MAPR may be, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the complete security of our database, nor can we guarantee that information you supply won’t be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.  If you don’t want us to know any particular information about you, don’t include it in anything that you submit or post to this website.

Changes to this Privacy Statement

We reserve the right to change this privacy statement from time to time, so please review it frequently.  If we change this privacy statement at some point in the future, we’ll post the changes on our website, and by continuing to use the website after we post any changes, you accept and agree to this privacy statement, as modified.

If you have any questions or complaints regarding this privacy statement or our use of your information, please contact us at info@mapr.org or by regular mail at: Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico, PO Box 41209, San Juan, Puerto Rico, 00940.

This privacy statement applies to this website only.
