We welcome families to the Great Country WGTY 107.7 website. However, we support the guideline that children should always get permission from their parents before sending any information about themselves (such as their names, email addresses, and phone numbers) over the Internet, to us or to anyone else.
The information gathered by WGTY 107.7 falls into two categories: (1) information voluntarily supplied by visitors to our website through optional registration or e-commerce transactions, and (2) tracking information gathered as visitors navigate through our site. Third party service providers on or linked to our website, such as vendors of products and services offered through our site, may be gathering the same kinds of information.
To make use of certain features on our website (such as the ‘At Work Network’, ‘Wired’ and other interactive forums) visitors might need to register and to provide certain information as part of the registration process. The information supplied will help us to offer you more personalized features, to tailor our site to your interests and make the site more useful to you, and to process e-commerce transactions.
The more you tell us about yourself, the more value we can offer you. Supplying such information is entirely voluntary. But if you don't supply the information we need, we may be unable to: provide you with new or existing services; breaking news about the station and its projects; or to notify you that you've been lucky enough to win a prize in a promotional contest.
Of course, even if you want to remain completely anonymous, you're still free to take advantage of the wealth of content available on our site without registration.
To help make our site more responsive to the needs of our visitors, we invoke a standard feature of browser software, called a "cookie," to assign each visitor a unique, random number, a sort of user ID, if you will, that resides on your computer. The cookie doesn't actually identify the visitor, just the computer that a visitor uses to access our site. Unless you voluntarily identify yourself (through registration, for example), we won't know who you are, even if we assign a cookie to your computer. The only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply. A cookie can't read unrelated data off your hard drive. Our advertisers and third party service providers may also assign their own cookies to your browser, a process that we don't control.
Our web servers automatically collect limited information about your computer's connection to the Internet, including your IP address, when you visit our site. (Your IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet know where to send you data -- such as the web pages you view.) Your IP address does not identify you personally. We use this information to deliver our web pages to you upon request, to tailor our site to the interests of our users, and to measure traffic within our site.
Questions regarding privacy issues should be directed to WGTY 107.7 to the attention of the General Manager.
Of course, our use of information gathered while the current policy is in effect will always be consistent with the current policy, even if we change that policy later.
