DMNS does not collect personal information about individuals, such as names and mailing or e-mail addresses, unless the individual visiting the DMNS Website or Online Store (collectively referred to as the "DMNS Website") knowingly provides it. By using the DMNS Website, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of the DMNS Privacy Policy. The DMNS Privacy Policy is outlined below.

DMNS policy on collecting information on the DMNS website

Online Purchases

When you order a product from the DMNS Online Store, we need to know your name, billing and shipping addresses, telephone number, e-mail address, and credit card information to process your order. Your credit card information will be used only as needed to process your transaction.

Online Memberships and Donations

When you purchase a DMNS membership or make a donation to DMNS online, we will ask you to provide us with the information we need to process your membership, acknowledge your contribution, and provide your membership and admission benefits. This information includes your name and names of other members on your account (including birthdates of children on the account), billing and/or shipping addresses, telephone number, e-mail address, and credit card information. Your credit card information will be used only as needed to process your transaction.

Online Surveys

From time to time, DMNS may invite you to participate in surveys posted on the DMNS Website or sent to you by e-mail. You may decide whether or not you wish to complete such surveys, which may ask about your background, occupation, or similar questions. We use this information to help us better understand our audience, which in turn allows us to better meet your needs and interests.

Online Contests

DMNS will occasionally offer visitors the opportunity to participate in online contests or sweepstakes. If you choose to enter, you will need to provide your name and e-mail address so that we may contact you in connection with the contest. We may also request that you provide us with certain other information, such as your zip code, state of residence and grade in school (provided that you are at least thirteen years of age).

Children Twelve and Under

DMNS does not solicit personal information from children. Visitors twelve years of age and under should remember that they are required to obtain an adult's permission before submitting any personal information to this or any other website.

DMNS E-Newsletters

As a service, DMNS offers visitors to the DMNS Website the opportunity to subscribe to one or more of our online newsletters, a service hosted by a contractor that has agreed to use the e-mail address you provide only to send e-news to you. If you choose to subscribe, you will receive DMNS E-News on the topics you choose. You may subscribe or unsubscribe at any time by following the E-News instructions.


Cookies are small files of information that are stored on your computer's hard drive by your Web browser. The cookies we use do not contain any personal information. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can change the preferences of your browser so that it does not accept them. In order to use all the features of the DMNS Online Store, we recommend that you accept cookies.

DMNS policy on the use and disclosure of the information it collects on the DMNS Website

DMNS uses the personal information you provide to us for internal purposes, such as filling and tracking your order, analyzing trends and collecting statistics. DMNS may also compile and provide aggregate statistics about our visitors, customers, sales, traffic patterns and related site information to third parties, but these statistics will not include any personally identifying information. 

We do not sell our purchaser, visitor, member or donor information. As is the common practice for nonprofits to attract new members, we may exchange the names and postal addresses we receive from members with other similar nonprofit organizations. If you do not want to have your information used in this way, you may send an e-mail message containing your name and postal address to [email protected]

If you have provided us with your e-mail or postal mailing address, we may send you communications in order to inform you of events or activities at or related to DMNS that we believe may be of interest to you, or to alert you about sales or other promotional events at DMNS. 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 protected], or simply opt out of the e-mail communication that you receive. 

We may combine information you give to us online, in our stores or at the Museum or through our catalogs. We may also combine this information with publicly available information and information we received from or have cross-referenced with our third-party vendors and others. We use this combined information to enhance and personalize your shopping experience with us, to communicate with you about products or events that may be of interest to you, or for other promotional purposes.


The DMNS Website may include links to websites operated by third parties over which we have no control. Once you leave the DMNS Website, the DMNS Privacy Policy will not apply, and you access such sites at your own risk.


DMNS secure server software uses industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology. SSL encodes your personal information, including credit card number, name, and address, as it travels over the Internet so that all transactions are secure. If you prefer, you may also place a DMNS Store order by phone at 303.370.6000, 9:00 AM-5:00 PM (Moutain Time) Monday-Friday.  For membership gifts, please call 303.370.6306 or e-mail [email protected] and for donations, please call 303.370.6450.

Revisions to our Privacy Policy

Please note that DMNS may revise its privacy policy at any time, without notice, such changes to be effective immediately upon posting on the DMNS Website. Such revisions may arise in response to changes in the law, policy, or other factors. We encourage you to periodically visit this page to review our most current policy.
