Nothing is more important to LiteracyLink, a part of the Public Broadcasting Service ("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 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 email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PBS will never willfully disclose any personally identifiable information about users of this LiteracyLink web site (the "Site") 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 our Site may voluntarily supply certain personally identifiable information in connection with (i) contest or sweepstakes registration, (ii) subscription registration for services which require subscription (such as e-mail newsletters), (iii) requests for membership information to local public television stations 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.
PBS may use such information only for conducting the activities stated above and for internal marketing/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.)
