MIT Privacy Statement


We are committed to preserving your privacy. We use the information that you provide — name, address, and telephone number, sensitive credit card information (card number, CVV/CVC/CID codes, retail track data, etc.) — to process your order and maintain our transaction records. The information will not be used for any commercial or philanthropic purpose not directly connected with or supported by MIT without your consent.

Our shopping cart software may use cookies to create and maintain your shopping cart during a session and to maintain your name and address for future visits to the site. Cookies are never used to store sensitive credit card information (card number, CVV/CVC/CID codes, retail track data, etc).

We are committed to providing you with a safe online experience. The software we use for processing credit card payments employs secure encryption technology (SSL) to reduce the possibility of theft, manipulation, and other alteration of any information that you provide to us.

We employ other companies and individuals to processing credit card payments. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law or to protect the rights, property, or safety of MIT or our customers. This does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this policy.

Any changes to our policy will be posted on this page. Any information collected prior to the changes will not be subject to the new policy without your consent. The information will remain subject to the policy at the time it was provided to us. Once the change in policy is posted, any new information that you provide and/or information associated with new orders will be subject to the new policy.

If you have questions or concerns about this policy or need to update your customer information, please send email to chargemit-help@mit.edu.
