WUVT-FM believes strongly in a right to privacy; however, as part of the services we provide, we collect certain information. We believe you, as a supporter and listener, should be aware of this, and pledge transparency in how we collect data. We promise to uphold these beliefs, and to defend your data as if it were our own.
We collect the following information from you. We promise we will not use it for malicious purposes, but recommend you read this whole page to understand why and how it is collected and used.
- The IP address of the host from which you connect
- The user-agent string in your web browser when you access the site
- The user-agent string of your music player, should you use a separate one for the stream
- Additional browser headers such as preferred language and encoding
- Time spent listening to the web stream
- Personal information used when processing donations, including:
- Email address
- Phone number
- Mailing address
- Payment information
We also use third parties including Stripe, Google, and Facebook to offer some of our services. These services have their own privacy policies that govern their use of this information.
Data We Collect
As part of standard operation of the website and stream, we collect data including user-agent strings and IP addresses of hosts connecting. If you are concerned about this, we suggest that you use anonymizing software, such as Tor, to protect this information. This website has been optimized for use with the Tor Browser.
As part of our donation service, we will request personal information, including name, email address, phone number, and mailing address. We do not directly process or store your credit card and billing information. We use the collected information to keep you up-to-date with WUVT happenings, to ship you Radiothon premiums, collect pledges, and, should you consent, to thank you on-air and in publications. This information is never shared with third parties.
Data Collected by Third Parties
If you would like to opt-out from this third-party tracking by Google and Facebook, you can use software such as uBlock Origin or Privacy Badger in order to prevent this type of tracking across a number of sites, in addition to ours. You can also opt-out out of targeted advertisements and some tracking by placing an opt-out cookie on your computer, but this mechanism only indicates your preference and does not technically prevent tracking.
