Effective Date June 1, 2007
Gathering of Information
KUER collects personally-identifying information (such as your name, e-mail address, address, telephone number and/or credit card information) from the KUER Web site only if you choose to provide that information to us.
KUER asks visitors to provide certain personal information when they register for the KUER Discussion Forums, when they request an audio CD of KUER programs, when they e-mail a page of the KUER Web site to another person, when they make a purchase from the KUER Online Shop, and when they register for any online contests. KUER also may ask visitors to provide personal information in other limited circumstances specified at the time the information is gathered. Any information that you post when participating in the KUER Discussions becomes public.
Like all other Web servers, KUER's Web server automatically creates log files for each visitor who accesses our site. These "access logs" allow us to make our site more useful to our visitors. The access logs do NOT record a visitor's name, address, phone number, credit card numbers, or any other personally-identifying information. Rather, they contain some or all of the following information:
The Internet Protocol Address (IP Address) of the machine which accessed our Web site.
The date of the visit.
The time of the visit.
The path taken through our Web site.
The browser being used.
A list of files downloaded or viewed.
The amount of time spent accessing media files.
Any errors encountered.
KUER may also uses 'cookies' to collect information. A cookie is a string of characters that can be written to a file on the user's hard drive when the user visits a Web site. Only the Web site that set the cookie can read it, and it can only be used as a record keeping device to store information that the site already has. It cannot, for example, be used to read other information from the user's hard drive.
Use of Information
The use of personally-identifying information is limited to the following: responding to user e-mails; listing name and location (city, state and/or country) information provided by users when publishing user e-mails or other submissions; fulfillment of audio CD orders; fulfillment of KUER Online Shop orders; contest management; editorial purposes such as contacting users for an online survey; sending communications, including marketing and promotional communications from KUER to users who have 'opted in' to the receipt of such communications, and other purposes specified at the time the information is gathered.
Any information that you disclose when participating in the KUER Discussions or Chat Forums becomes public. Moreover, by participating in the KUER Discussions and Chat Forums, the e-mail address you provide for such purpose becomes available to any third parties accessing our Web site and as a result, you may receive unsolicited e-mail from such third parties.
In addition, if you send an e-mail, story idea, essay and/or other submission ("Submission") to KUER through our Web site, we may print that Submission, or an excerpt from it, on the KUER Web site, read it on air, or otherwise publish it in any other medium, together with your name and location (city, state and/or country) if you provide that information to us.
Personally-identifying information collected by KUER is not provided to outside parties except KUER service vendors (such as KUER's Online Shop fulfillment service and KUER's enewsletter email list manager), and other third parties when the user specifically consents to such distribution. In these circumstances, the information is provided for the sole purpose of -- and only to the extent necessary for -- delivering the requested transcript, or goods to the user, delivering communications from KUER to users who have 'opted in' to the receipt of these communications, or serving other internal KUER purposes.
KUER also may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or if it believes that such action is necessary to (a) comply with the law or with legal process, (b) protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the KUER Web site, or (c) protect the personal safety or property of KUER Web site users, the public or KUER and its employees.
If you do not want your personally-identifying information to be collected or used for any of these purposes, you can simply 'opt out' according to the process described below.
KUER uses non-identifying aggregate information to analyze use of and better design the KUER Web site and to share with third parties in aggregate form only as appropriate. For example, we may tell a third party that a certain number of users accessed a particular audio stream on our Web site. However, we will not disclose any information that could be used to identify those users.
KUER has in place what we believe to be appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Credit card information provided to the KUER Online Shop is protected against unauthorized use by 128-bit encryption and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) security features, which scramble your personal information so that only your web browser and our Web site's server can decipher it.
Under 13: You must be at least 13 years old in order to register for the Discussions, order KUER CDs, or place an order on the KUER Online Shop. If you are under 13 years of age, please do not send any information about yourself, including your name, address or e-mail address. If we discover that we have collected any personally-identifying information from a child under the age of 13, we will remove that information from our database as soon as possible.
13-18: Unless otherwise specified, you must be at least 18 years old in order to participate in any online contests. Visitors between the ages of 13 and 18 must obtain permission from their parents or guardians before registering for the Discussions, ordering KUER CDs, placing an order on the KUER Online Shop, or otherwise sending any personally-identifying information.
Corrections to Personal Data; Opting Out
Please Contact Us to a) correct or update any personal information in the KUER database that you state is erroneous, b) opt-out of future communications from KUER or c) request KUER to make reasonable efforts to remove your personal information from the KUER Online database. The user understands that it may be impossible to delete personal information entirely because of backups and records of deletions.
