Most cookies with a time limit attached to them or restricted to single use do not include any information for others on how to contact you. If you wish, you may also set up your web browser so that you will be notified each time a cookie is established.

The National Palace Museum, in addition to continuously striving to strengthen its measures of protection, also reminds you: Whenever you reveal personal information over any network, it may (with enough time, effort, and/or tools) be intercepted, collected, interpreted, and/or used by others. Especially in the case of open forums on the Internet, such as chat rooms and message boards, for the protection of your privacy and rights, please refrain from offering any personal information therein, such as your personal identification number, password, and/or e-mail address.

Besides the previously mentioned uses, the privacy of your personal information is hereby given all due respect and will be protected to the fullest extent. However, in exceptional cases of system maintenance or service improvement (as well as legal mandate), the Southern Branch of the NPM reserves the right to use (and reveal) the information that you provided. This statement has been prepared in accordance with the current legal stipulations of the Republic of China and takes into account current Internet technology and uses. With advances in technology, relevant laws will also be revised and/or established. The Southern Branch of the National Palace Museum will do its best to keep abreast of such developments and make revisions to this statement as necessitated by current conditions so as to protect the personal information of visitors to this site.
