WTJX is committed to protecting the private information of our web site visitors. The WTJX.org web site adheres to a strict policy for ensuring the privacy of personally identifiable information and preserving the integrity of this online medium. Here we explain the type of information collected from WTJX.org, how that information may be used, how you can access or modify that information, and how that information is protected.
I. WHICH SITES ARE COVERED BY THIS POLICY?
II. WHAT INFORMATION DO WE GATHER?
WTJX collects two types of information from visitors to the Site: (A) Personally Identifiable Information, and (B) Non-personally Identifiable Information (information such as IP Addresses and cookies, which allow for a better use of the Site). Uses of this information are discussed in Section III. A. Personally Identifiable Information: WTJX will not collect personally identifiable information from you, other than what you supply to us on a voluntary basis upon request. Personally identifiable information includes, but is not limited to, name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, and credit card information. Registration for our website: Our Site may at times require a free registration, which enables full access to the information and resources offered on our Site. A unique email address must be supplied to register. Paid Products and Services: While the majority of our Site is free, we may charge fees for select products and services. To enable the purchase of these and other products, we collect your telephone number, e-mail address, billing address and credit card information. Support of Member Stations and other public broadcasting entities: On certain pages within the Site, WTJX may offer visitors the opportunity to make a donation in support of public broadcasting entities, programs and series, or to order products, subscriptions or other services offered by WTJX Member Stations. If a visitor chooses to make a donation or order such other products or services, WTJX will collect and store your telephone number, e-mail address, billing address and credit card information. Forums, Feedback and Content Submissions: On some pages of the Site, you can submit content to be published, make community postings, comments, suggestions, and vote. We may collect name, address, and e-mail addresses in connection with these activities. Your submission of others’ Personally Identifiable Information: On some pages of the Site, you can submit information about other people. For example, you may submit a person’s name and email address to send an article. Additionally, you may purchase a gift online and submit the person’s name, address and telephone number for delivery. This information will only be used for the stated purpose. Contests, Sweepstakes and Special Offers: On occasion, we may collect personal information from users in connection with optional (i.e., you opt-in to participate in these offers) sweepstakes, contests or special offers. Such information will be used as indicated at the time of collection. Listservs and E-mail Newsletters: On occasion, we may collect personal information from users in connection with optional (i.e. you opt-in to subscribe to these services) listservs and e-mail newsletters. Such information will be used as indicated at the time of collection. B. Non-personally Identifiable Information: In addition to information that you provide to us, we may also collect and store certain non-personally identifiable information automatically when using the Site. This information helps us improve the experience you and other visitors have with the Site. For example, we may collect your IP address, browser information and reference site domain, as well as related information such as the date on which you visit the Site. This information does not identify you personally and is only used in the aggregate. As is common practice among web sites, we use “cookies” and similar technologies. Cookies are text files which store your preferences. No personal information is ever stored in a WTJX cookie, even if you have entered your name or email address on other parts of the Site. You can generally prevent cookies from being used by changing the settings in your web browser, but please be aware that by doing so you may be unable to fully utilize the Site.
III. HOW DO WE USE INFORMATION GATHERED ON THE SITE?
IV. HOW CAN I ACCESS OR CORRECT INFORMATION?
Access to personally identifiable information that is collected from our Site may be accessible for a limited period of time from the point of collection, such as where a user provides an e-mail address in order to receive an e-mail newsletter or a reminder about an upcoming program or event. In other cases, personally identifiable information may be maintained, edited and deleted at the user’s discretion at any time after the information has been submitted to WTJX. For example, if you created a password-protected account within our Site, you may be able to access that account to review the information you provided and make corrections and updates as necessary. However this feature is not available throughout our Site where the user is not asked to create an account. Therefore, if at any time, you prefer not to receive e-mail from a service that you subscribed to without creating a personal account, simply get out by following the unsubscribe options at the bottom of each e-mail. You may also send an e-mail or letter to the following e-mail or street address requesting access to or correction of your personally identifiable information. For verification purposes please include your first name, last name, e-mail address and the password you use for said service. Webmaster@wtjx.org, PO BOX 808, Christiansted, VI 00821.
V. HOW IS MY INFORMATION PROTECTED?
WTJX is committed to ensuring the security of the data provided to us by Site users. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to protect the information we collect online.
VI. DO YOU HAVE ADDITIONAL CHILDREN’S GUIDELINES?
WTJX.org is a general audience Site and does not knowingly collect or store personally identifiable information about children under the age of 13. Any of our sites that are directed to children under the age of 13 comply with COPPA (Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act) standards, which are in addition to WTJX.org policies.
