Thank you for visiting WMHT.org.
WMHT takes great pride in offering high-quality, educational and inspirational programming, both on air and on the Web. Below you'll find information about our commitment to ensuring the privacy of your and your children's personally-identifying information (such as full name, address, e-mail address or other identifying information.)
You have trusted WMHT for many years to make safe and quality content that is suitable for family members of all ages. At WMHT.org whenever we seek information for activities and services for children, the information we collect is non-personal (such as only first name and last initial, age, city and state.) We encourage parents to talk to their children about their use of the Internet and the information they disclose to Web sites, and to build an understanding of pages and services devoted to children and to distinguish those intended for adults (such as other areas of our site like our pledge page and our shop page.) If we know that a user is under the age of 13 we will not collect or store any personally-identifying information without first obtaining a parent's permission. Further, unless otherwise specified, visitors must be at least 18 years of age in order to participate in any WMHT.org contests, to make an online pledge or to receive free email programming and membership updates.
Gathering and Use of Information for WMHT.org and WMHT Donors
WMHT will never willfully disclose any personally-identifying information about our online users to any third party without first receiving the user's permission, unless required by law. Further, we only collect personally-identifying information on a voluntary basis, such as when you submit an inquiry from our "Contact Us"page, send us an e-mail message, complete an online donation on our pledge page, purchase a DVD from our online shop page, or provide us with content submissions, community postings, or place a vote. WMHT staff will review your submissions in order to provide you information, service or a response. See our Terms of Service for more details on how we handle your content submissions and postings.
As a visitor you may opt-out of providing some or all requested information, yet please recognize, that in some circumstances you may become in-eligible for certain activities. For example, failure to provide a postal mailing address when entering an online contest may prevent us from contacting you if you win. WMHT endeavors to make a good-faith effort to explain why we collect information, as it pertains to each online activity, in order to provide you with peace of mind.
WMHT donors help WMHT to continue to produce, present and broadcast programs of value to our community, by making financial donations. WMHT respects the privacy of our donors. WMHT does not exchange, rent, sell, license or trade our donor’s names and addresses with any third parties. We will use donor information to process their donations, deliver membership benefits and program information, and to keep abreast of donor’s interests through surveys and research. WMHT may sometimes provide donor information to organizations hired by and working on behalf of WMHT, or other public broadcasting organizations or stations (such as the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, PBS, NPR) for research purposes, or to provide our donors station member benefits.
Security and Your Information
We take reasonable steps to protect your personally-identifying information. In particular, when you come to WMHT.org to submit a pledge or purchase a DVD on our pledge or shop pages, your submitted information, including your credit card numbers, are encrypted using "Secure Socket Layer" (SSL) encryption, which is the industry standard for information security. You know you are on a secure page when the Web address starts with "https" (the "s" is for "secure"). In the unlikely event your data is intercepted by a third party, it will be unusable. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. In particular, e-mail you send to us may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you include.
Our goal is to offer service while adhering to the best security practices possible; to do so requires your shared cooperation and commitment. Thus to participate in these optional services you agree to abide by the following terms and conditions:
All information submitted by you is accurate and updated.
In the case where registration or a user identity is required, you will not select or use an e-mail address or identity of another person with the intent to impersonate that person.
You will not use an e-mail address in which another person has rights without that person's authorization.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any passwords or user identification created for using services on WMHT.org.
WMHT and Cookies
We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions of this policy at any time. Your continued use of WMHT.org following the posting of any changes to these terms shall mean that you have accepted those changes.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.
