WAGM-TV is very respectful of privacy concerns of the visitors to its sites on the Internet. As a general policy, certain sections of the Web site require user registration in order to be used. In order to register, users must provide a valid e-mail address and their first and last names.
This information is primarily used to provide an enhanced online experience for the visitor. Information tracked includes the type of browser being used by the visitor (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system (e.g., Macintosh, Windows) in use by the visitor and the domain name of the visitor’s Internet service provider (e.g., WAGM-TV, America Online, etc.). By having this information, web pages optimized for a particular visitor’s computer are automatically made available to that visitor. Other use of this information may include internal review of the number of visitors to this site, but only in aggregate and in a non-personally-identifiable form. Email addresses and other personally identifiable data about the visitor to this site are known to WAGM-TV only when voluntarily submitted by the user.
When you sign up for or inquire about WAGM-TV services, you may provide us with information that is associated with your personal identity, such as your name, service address, telephone number(s), user IDs, passwords, email address, billing and payment information, customer correspondence and communications records, maintenance and repairs, and other service-related information. To the extent that you request or subscribe to WAGM-TV’s Web sites, you may also provide (or we may electronically collect) information about your computer, as well as your service choices. We may also collect information from visitors or customers who respond to e-mail surveys. All personal information that we collect is treated as confidential.
An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer or network when you are on the Internet. When visitors request pages from our Web Site, our servers log the visitor’s IP address. We may collect IP addresses for a variety of internal purposes, such as system administration, to report aggregate information to our business partners or to audit the number of visits to different pages on our Web Site. Please note that some services within our Web Site, such as certain message boards, may display IP addresses along with the message poster’s name and message.
The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our guests is of utmost concern to us. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, WAGM-TV cannot insure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best efforts to ensure its security on all of our systems.
A Special Note to Parents
Children must get permission from their parents before sending any information about themselves (such as their names, email addresses, and phone numbers) over the Internet, to WAGM-TV or anyone else. WAGM-TV will not knowingly allow anyone under 13 to register with any of its sites, to order WAGM-TV services or products online, or to access those features that require registration. WAGM-TV.com does not sell products for purchase by children. We may sell children’s products for purchase by adults. WAGM-TV believes that parents should supervise their children’s’ online activities and consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that help provide a child friendly online environment. These tools can also prevent children disclosing online – their name, address, and other personal information, without parental permission. For additional information about parental control tools, please consult the “Consumer Assistance” page of the Direct Marketing Association home page (http://www.the-dma.org).
