Privacy Policy

 

We have created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our commitment to the privacy of any information you may provide to us. This policy discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website (wvut.org), as well as any other Web sites owned or operated by WVUT-TV.

We will do our very best to ensure the privacy of any identifiable information (such as full name, address, e-mail address, telephone number and/or other identifiable information) you may provide to us.

The support from our individual members and donors is critical to fulfilling WVUT-TV’s mission of community service. WVUT-TV conducts our fundraising in compliance with nationally established guidelines while ensuring that our member’s trust and faith in us is deserved.

WVUT-TV maintains lists of names, addresses, giving history, programming interests and other pertinent data for those who have supported us financially or otherwise have indicated an interest in our organization’s programming or activities.

WVUT-TV does not sell or exchange its member or donor lists with any Non-affiliated Third Party.

On occasion, WVUT-TV provides its list to vendors who conduct work or an activity for WVUT-TV. WVUT-TV requires all vendors to maintain the confidentiality of WVUT-TV’S files and confidential information and to adhere to a policy of not exchanging, selling, or otherwise disclosing the organization’s member, donor and underwriter lists.

WVUT-TV will adhere to all federal, state and local laws.

WVUT-TV is required to disclose the identity of all donors who provide direct funding for any program produced by WVUT-TV.

WVUT-TV may publish a list of members and donors (for example, as part of our Annual Report.) This listing may indicate a monetary range into which each member or donor’s gift falls. If you wish to be excluded from any such listing, contact us at generalmanager@wvut.org.

WVUT-TV will also comply with the Corporation for Public Broadcasting guidelines for list activities. These guidelines require WVUT-TV to annually certify compliance with laws and regulations of the Internal Revenue Service regarding tax-exempt status, and with all federal laws and regulations governing political activity and lobbying.

WVUT-TV will not rent or purchase any mailing list that is politically affiliated including, but not limited to, political organizations, campaigns and committees.

WVUT will not collect personally identifiable information from you, other than what you supply to us on a voluntary basis. We may collect certain non-personal information to optimize our Web pages for your computer (i.e., the identity of your Internet browser, the type of operating system you use, your IP address and the domain name of your Internet service provider). We may use such non-personal information for internal purposes, including but not limited to improving the content of our website.

In order to participate in some activities, you might be asked to provide some personally identifiable information. This could be in connection with the following:

  • contest or sweepstakes registration
  • services which require subscription (such as email newsletters)
  • WVUT membership/support submission
  • content submissions, community postings (i.e., forums, bulletin boards, community events), comments and suggestions or voting

You should recognize that if you choose not to voluntarily submit requested information, you may not be eligible for those activities for which personally identifiable information is needed.

In the event WVUT wants to collect information for purposes other than those set forth in this policy, WVUT will notify you when we are collecting personally identifiable information about you and how we intend to use it.

Personally identifiable information that members, donors, viewers and visitors provide to WVUT or submit to our sites is used only for the purpose for which it is submitted unless we disclose other uses in this Privacy Policy or at the time of collection. Such other uses may include sending our constituents information about WVUT programs, services, or membership, sending you information or materials we think you will find interesting, or sharing the information with select third party companies or organizations.

WVUT maintains a membership/customer database with the email address, name and postal address, telephone number and other personally identifiable information of persons who have provided such information to WVUT by mail, telephone or emailing us with questions about membership, submitting an on-line membership contribution (making an on-line pledge) or sending us an email about our programs or services. By supplying WVUT with an email address, telephone number or postal address you may receive future communications from WVUT via email, telephone or mail. WVUT will not willfully disclose your personal information to any third party, in adherence to established practices, without first receiving your permission.
