Thank you for visiting wcny.org. Protecting the private information of visitors to our site is important to us.
Below is information about our commitment to ensuring the privacy of you and your children’s personally identifiable information (such as your full name, address, email address, telephone number and/or other identifying information), and preserving the integrity of the medium. Please read the following carefully:
GATHERING AND USE OF INFORMATION
WCNY will never willfully disclose any personally identifiable information about our online audience to any third party without first receiving the user’s permission. We do not collect personally identifiable information from our visitors other than what is supplied to us on a voluntary basis.
Visitors to the WCNY web site may voluntarily supply certain personally identifiable information in connection with (i) contest or sweepstakes registration, (ii) subscription registration for sites or services which require subscription (such as email newsletters), (iii) requests for membership information, and (iv) e-commerce transactions. In addition, personally identifiable information is voluntarily provided in connection with certain content submissions, community postings (i.e., forums or bulletin boards), comments and suggestions, or voting.
WCNY may use such information only for conducting the activities stated above, for internal marketing and promotional purposes, or, on occasion, when mailing lists are made available to other organizations. (The occasional provision of mailing lists to such organizations is only in cases where WCNY utilizes a third party vendor to conduct marketing services for its own purposes. All vendor/partners are contracted to keep WCNY’s constituency information private). The extent of such use is always explained at the time a site visitor provides such information. If the visitor does not want this information collected and used by us for the disclosed internal purposes, the visitor is given an opportunity to “opt-out.” Our visitors need to recognize, however, that under certain circumstances, if they select to “opt-out” they may not be eligible for certain activities for which the personally identifiable information is needed. (For example, if a contest participant elects to “opt-out” on permitting us to collect and use their personal information, we cannot contact them if they win without using such information.)
