Our Commitment To Your Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy the following notice explains the information we collect, how it is used, how it is safeguarded, and how to contact us if you have any concerns.

Like all other web servers, The Ohio State University's web server, which hosts, automatically creates log files for visitors accessing our site. These access logs do not record visitor names, addresses, phone numbers, credit card numbers, or any other personally identifying information.

  • The IP address of the machine accessing
  • The date and time of the visit
  • The path taken through our website
  • The browser being used
  • A list of files downloaded or viewed
  • Any errors encountered

How that information is used:

Email addresses submitted by customers for final billing confirmation of their purchases (mandatory) or for email notification of bookshop sales and Wexner Center events (voluntary) are not used for any other purpose. You may opt out of voluntary email messages at any time. Personally identifying information will not be shared with or sold to parties outside Wexner Center Store and the Wexner Center for the Arts.


Access log data is used to provide answers to specific questions about the usage and performance of the web site or individual web pages. At no time is site usage associated with individual IP addresses.


The Wexner Center does not store credit card information from any transaction, whether it be online or in the Wexner Center Store.
