Nothing is more important to Southern Oregon PBS than protecting the private information of visitors to our site. Below you’ll find information about our commitment to ensuring the privacy of your and your children’s personally identifiable information (such as your full name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, and/or other identifying information) and preserving the integrity of the medium. Please read the following carefully. If you have any questions or concerns, please send us an e-mail through our Contact SOPBS page.
Gathering and Use of Information
- Southern Oregon PBS 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 SOPBS website 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 e-mail 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.
- SOPBS may use such information only for conducting the activities stated above, for internal marketing and promotional purposes. 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).
- The use of website measurement software assists Southern Oregon PBS in analyzing the user experience on our websites and improving the structure and ease of use of our websites. It is used to collect such information as the number of unique visitors, how long visitors spend on our websites, and common entry and exit points into and from the websites. You cannot be identified personally from this information and no personal information is stored about you.
