Nothing is more important to OETA than protecting the private information of visitors to our site. Below is information about our commitment to ensuring the privacy of your and your children's personally identifiable information (such as your full name, address, email address, telephone number and/or other identifying information) and preserving the integrity of the medium. Please read the following carefully.
Gathering and Use of Information
Unless required by law, the Oklahoma Educational Television Authority and Friends of OETA, Inc. (together referred to as OETA) will never willfully disclose any personally identifiable information about our online audience 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 the OETA website may voluntarily supply certain personally identifiable information in connection with (i) contest or sweepstakes registration, (ii) subscription registration for sites or services which require subscription (such as email newsletters), (iii) requests for membership information 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.
OETA and its related organizations may use such information only for conducting the activities stated above, for internal marketing and promotional purposes, or, on occasion, when mailing lists are made available to OETA’s contracted vendors. (Unless required by law, the occasional provision of mailing lists to such organizations is the only case where such information would be provided to third parties.) For more information regarding OETA's policies on the handling and use of OETA's membership list, please refer to our Member List Policy. 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. If visitors wish 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.)
Because the transfer of data over the internet can possibly be intercepted by third parties not related to OETA and private or sensitive communication is susceptible to security breaches outside of our control, OETA cannot be held responsible for the interception of data in transit between OETA's website and our visitors.
