Your privacy is important to us
The Corporation for Public Broadcasting respects your privacy. During your visit to our site, you may be providing information to us in two ways:
- Anonymous statistics collected automatically as you browse the site, and
- Personal information you knowingly and voluntarily give us.
We want you to be aware of how we treat this information.
This site works with third parties to collect anonymous traffic data at this site. As you browse the site, CPB automatically monitors your visit and collects statistical information about your travels through our site. This is not personal information about you, just data about web use. We also use Web server logs and monitor anonymous statistics such as:
- How many people visit our site?
- Which pages people visit on our site?
- Which browsers people use to visit our site?
- What domain and host accessed the site (for example: cpb.org)?
We use these statistics and other data to improve our Web site, monitor its performance, and to make it easier for you and other visitors to use. None of this information is associated with you or any individual visitor. You do not give us your identity by visiting our Web site. You will identify yourself however, if you choose to send us e-mail (see Personal Information below for more information).
Within CPB's Web site, you may be asked to give us personal information, such as when you ask a question via e-mail that requires a response.
CPB will not obtain personally identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide it to us. We will not voluntarily sell, give away, or trade names, addresses or any personally identifiable information about our site users to any third parties. We will not otherwise release such information unless required by law or the courts.
CPB assumes responsibility only for the information provided by CPB on this domain (cpb.org). As a convenience to you, there are links throughout this site that will allow you to leave CPB's site. You should be aware that any sites linked here are not under the control of CPB. As such, we can make no representation to you concerning the content of these sites, nor does the fact that CPB has provided a link to a site serve as an endorsement by CPB of any of these sites. You should also be aware that the privacy protections afforded to the CPB Web site may not be afforded by sites linked to the CPB Web site.
Your Privacy Is Important To Us
To establish policies for ensuring the privacy of visitors to the CPB Web site.
CPB will not voluntarily disclose to any third party any personally identifiable information about visitors to its Web site without first receiving the visitor's permission. If, however, CPB is compelled to reveal such information under process of law, it will cooperate fully, and in such case will not first seek the visitor's permission.
CPB does not collect personally identifiable information from its Web page visitors other than what is supplied on a voluntary basis. CPB will not condition access to any portion of its Web site on the provision of personally identifiable information. Visitors to the CPB Web site may be invited to supply personally identifiable information, but CPB will simultaneously offer an opportunity to decline or "opt-out" of providing such personally identifiable information. If visitors are invited to supply voluntary information, the extent of CPB's use of the information will be explained at the time the visitor supplies the information.
