Please find below our policy for collection, use and protection of any information you share with us, both publicly and confidentially.

The use of Google Analytics on the Theodore Roosevelt Center website and Digital Library

When you visit our website, our web server collects certain data which is then processed by Google Analytics. This data may include, but is not limited to, your IP address, location, browser, operating system and internet service provider. Cookies are also used by Google Analytics to track how many times you visit the site, what paths you follow, and whether you are a new or returning user. Reports based on this information are used by the Theodore Roosevelt Center to better understand our user base and the needs of our users. While we may release web usage statistics at some point to the public, we will not release any personally identifying data at any time.

Access to Information We Have about You

Except for information you choose to submit to us via email, messages, or use of the My Collections tools, we do not collect any personal data (name, address, phone number, age, gender, etc.) when you visit our website. If you do choose to share personal information with us in some way, that information is only used for the purpose it was submitted.

If you choose to create an account on our website and share personal data through the public profile function or though publicly shared collections, you are responsible for maintaining this information at a level you think appropriate for your own privacy. The Theodore Roosevelt Center is not responsible for any breach of privacy that may occur by information the user willingly posts in public collections and/or profiles. The Theodore Roosevelt Center does maintain the right to remove such information if we find it is in violation of our Comment and Posting Policy explained below.

Comment and Posting Policy

We welcome and encourage your participation and comments on the Theodore Roosevelt Center social media venues and My Collections tools. Our social media sites are governed by general rules of respectful civil discourse. You are fully responsible for everything that you post on our website through public My Collections tools, on our Facebook wall and posts, and/or on or through our Twitter feed.

The Theodore Roosevelt Center does not discriminate against any views. Nevertheless, the TR Center may monitor any user-generated content as it chooses and reserves the right to remove content for any reason whatever, without consent.

Please be aware and adhere to the following policies when participating on our social media sites:

  • We will only post comments from users over 13 years of age that relate to the topics on the pages.
  • We will remove comments that contain abusive, vulgar, offensive, threatening or harassing language, personal attacks of any kind, or offensive terms that target specific individuals or groups.
  • We will remove comments that contain personal information (your own or someone else’s), including home address, home or cell phone number, in order to protect the privacy of our users.
  • We will remove spam and any comments that are clearly off-topic, that promote services or products, or that involve political campaigning or lobbying.
  • Gratuitous links to sites are viewed as spam and will result in the comment being removed.
  • Do not post anything you do not have the right to post. We will follow a notice and takedown procedure for complaints of copyright violation under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
  • Communications made through social media posts, e-mail, and messaging systems will in no way constitute a legal or official notice or comment to the Theodore Roosevelt Center or any official or employee of the TRC for any purpose.
  • The contents of all comments are released into the public domain unless the commenter clearly states otherwise, so do not submit anything you do not wish to broadcast to the general public.
