Privacy Policy

This privacy policy constitutes an integral part of the terms and conditions of use of the website (the “Site”), which is owned and operated by the Aga Khan Museum (the “Museum”). It describes the ways that the Museum undertakes to protect your personal data (and that of the person or persons for whom you act as legal representative) (the “Personal Data”), the way in which we collect information from you when you use the Site and for what such data may be used. This privacy policy applies to any information obtained by the Museum through your use of the Site. It is not applicable to any Internet websites controlled by third parties that the Site may link to (“Third-Party Sites”). Please review the privacy statements of Third-Party Sites, as the Museum is not responsible for and has no influence on the content or the privacy practices of Third-Party Sites.

Personal Data is collected from you in various ways

From time to time, there may be projects, programs, and services that may allow you to provide Personal Data to us via the Site. By providing Personal Data, you are consenting to the Museum’s use of the Personal Data, and you consent that the Museum may disclose this information to other members of the AKDN and related entities or to third-party providers, inside or outside your country of residence, for data processing. You also consent to the retention of this Personal Data.

In particular, your Personal Data can be collected as set out in the Appendix to this privacy policy.

You are entitled to a copy of your Personal Data and to have it rectified or deleted as required by applicable data protection legislation. Should you have any concerns or requests regarding your Personal Data, you may send an e-mail to Please note it may take some time to process your request and to cancel your participation, if this is requested. During any such period, your Personal Data will still be available on the Site. We will endeavour to amend or remove your information from the Site as quickly as is reasonably possible.

No one under age is allowed to enter any Personal Data or otherwise communicate with the Site unless the legal representative or representatives of the minor (generally the minor’s parents or parent) and us formally consent in advance. Personal Data entered by a minor unbeknownst to us without such consent will be deleted from our database as quickly as possible after we become aware of the fact.

We use appropriate technical and organizational security measures in order to protect Personal Data against unauthorized access, accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, and destruction.

The Internet is a global environment. In order to administer the Site, we may need to transfer Personal Data to locations outside the European Economic Area (the “EEA”) and process Personal Data in locations outside the EEA. The level of data protection offered in such jurisdictions may be less than that offered within the EEA. By clicking “subscribe,” “submit,” “log in,” or “submit by e-mail,” as the case may be, or any other such term that results in you sending us Personal Data, you accept this privacy policy and you consent to such transfers.

The Museum may disclose Personal Data when required by law or regulation or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary in order to conform to the edicts of the law, comply with legal mandates, or to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of personnel of the Museum, other members of the AKDN, related entities, the Site’s users, and the public.

The Site uses “cookies” (text files) that will be saved on your computer and that will allow an analysis of your use of the Site. This information will be used to compile reports about the Site activities for the Site operator and will facilitate provision of additional services in relation to the Site and Internet utilization. If you do not wish to receive “cookies,” you may set your web browser to reject these, if your browser so permits.

The Site keeps track of user activity via log files stored on our web servers. The log files include information on IP addresses, browser types and versions, pages viewed, and entry and exit paths. Log files assist us in offering a personalized Web experience, diagnosing server problems, administering the website, and tailoring information for the end user.

When we send you e-mails, we may include a Web beacon to allow us to determine the number of people who open our e-mails and the links on which they click. Web beacons can be refused when delivered via e-mail. If you do not wish to receive Web beacons via e-mail, you will need to disable HTML images in your e-mail software.
