We believe you have a right to know what personal information is collected during your visits to our web site – wlkn.com – and how the information is used and safeguarded.
You can view most of our content anonymously, but circumstances exist when information about you is collected. The information gathered falls into two categories: information you supply voluntarily and information we gather through technology.
Information you supply voluntarily
To use certain features and services on our web site, you may be asked to provide specific information about yourself. Examples of such features and services include submitting information for broadcast on the air, entering contests, starting an email or paper newsletter subscription, contacting us about a customer service problem, contacting us with question on programming or subscribing to an email notifier. This information is collected when you fill out a browser-based form and is necessary to make the features useful and valuable. The forms have blank spaces into which you type the information. In most cases, we collect information such as your name and email address.
How we use information you supply voluntarily
We use the information you voluntarily supply to complete transactions or to communicate with you. For example, if you submit items or information for broadcast, we use your information to process and confirm your information. If you contact us for help, we use the information to contact you with a resolution to your problem or answer to your question. If you enter a contest, we use the information to determine eligibility and to contact winners.
Information gathered through technology
Technology helps us gather other information. Our web servers may automatically collect limited information about your computer’s connection to the Internet, including your IP address, which is usually associated with the place from which you enter the Internet. You likely enter the Internet through your Internet service provider, your company or your school. Your IP address does not identify you personally. Your email address is not collected through this process, and no data on your hard drive or personal or institutional servers are read.
We also may collect aggregate information on how many people visit our sites and what pages people access on our sites. We do not track the specific pages that you or any individual access on our sites. Some of this information may be gathered using a standard feature of browser software called a “cookie.” The cookie does not identify you or other individual users. It merely identifies the computer you use. A cookie cannot read data on your hard drive or server or gather other personal information about you such as your name or email address. As of this revision WLKN.COM is utilizing Google Analytics to gather traffic and visitor information. More information on the data Google provides is available at: http://www.google.com/analytics
How we use information gathered through technology
The information gathered through technology helps us make our sites more interesting and useful to you and other visitors. It helps us evaluate the value of and interest in specific sections of our sites. We can build better sites if we know which pages you and other people visit and how often you and others visit those pages.
Sharing information with other parties
Personal information you voluntarily provide is used for internal purposes only and is not shared or sold with other businesses or organizations. Under no circumstances is specific information about you or other individuals shared with advertisers or other parties without your permission. Use of certain interactive features, such as submitting items for Over the Back Fence, a news item, community calendar or business report item, implies your permission to share your information.
We will share personal information with law enforcement officials as required under subpoena or court order to protect the safety and security of our sites, our visitors and the community. We may share aggregated statistics on site visits and page views with advertisers to help them understand our audience and confirm the value of advertising on our web sites. Personal information about individuals is not shared with advertisers.
Special notice to children
Children should always get parental permission before sending any information about themselves over the Internet – to us or anyone else. We encourage parents to review and share safety tips with their children using the Internet.
Notice regarding other online companies
