I. WHICH SITES ARE COVERED BY THIS POLICY?
II. WHAT INFORMATION DO WE GATHER?
NTDTV collects two types of information from visitors to the Site: (A) Personally Identifiable Information, and (B) Non-personally Identifiable Information (information such as IP Addresses and cookies, which allow for a better use of the Site). Uses of this information are discussed in Section III.
A. Personally Identifiable Information
Personally identifiable information includes, but is not limited to, name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, and credit card information. NTDTV does not collect personally identifiable information from you, other than what you supply to us on a voluntary basis upon request, in the following situations:
NTDTV collects Personal Information through its donation subscriptions, pledges of financial support, and/or services which require subscriptions such as an email or postal newsletter ("Subscription Activities"). Your Personal Information may be collected and used by NTDTV as is reasonably necessary to complete a transaction you requested (e.g., credit card information to process your donation). NTDTV also collects Personal Information directly from you, and others authorized by you to share your Personal Information with NTDTV. NTDTV may offer various correspondence in connection with its Subscription Activities (e.g., newsletters, postings or other communications) in order to inform its donors, viewers and NTDTV Site visitors about promotions, special offers, events, changes or postings to the NTDTV Sites.
B. Non-personally Identifiable Information
In addition to information that you provide to us, we may also collect and store certain non-personally identifiable information automatically when using the Site. This information helps us improve the experience you and other visitors have with the Site.
For example, we may collect your IP address, browser information and reference site domain, as well as related information such as the date on which you visit the Site. This information does not identify you personally and is only used in the aggregate.
As is common practice among web sites, we use “cookies” and similar technologies. Cookies are text files which store your preferences. No personal information is ever stored in a NTDTV cookie, even if you have entered your name or email address on other parts of the Site.
You can generally prevent cookies from being used by changing the settings in your web browser, but please be aware that by doing so you may be unable to fully utilize the Site.
We sometimes allow third-party companies to serve ads and/or collect certain anonymous information when you visit our web site. These companies may use non-personally identifiable information (e.g., click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to this and other web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie or third party web beacon to collect this information. To learn more about this behavioral advertising practice or to opt-out of this type of advertising, you can visit networkadvertising.org.
III. HOW DO WE USE INFORMATION GATHERED ON THE SITE?
• General Uses
• Creation and Use of Aggregate Information
We may use your Personal Information and other information about or provided by you to create "Aggregated Information". Aggregated Information is created by aggregating or generating statistical data from Personal Information about donors, viewers and NTDTV Site users. Aggregated Information also is anonymous data, because it cannot be used to identify a particular individual. We may use Aggregate Information for marketing, share it with our sponsors, business associates, or other affiliated companies, to better understand visitors to the NTDTV Sites and our members, and to improve NTDTV services such as the NTDTV Sites.
IV. May My Personal Information Be Disclosed to Others?
Further, NTDTV may also disclose Personal Information if required to do so by law, or if NTDTV believes that such action is necessary to: (a) comply with the law or with a legal process such as a court order, subpoena, search warrant or a law enforcement request, (b) protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the NTDTV Site or other NTDTV content, or (c) protect the personal safety or property of NTDTV and NTDTV subsidiaries, affiliates, business associates or partners, members, donors, viewers and website visitors, the public or NTDTV and its employees.
The NTDTV Sites may contain links, which, if you choose to click, will lead you to websites controlled by third parties. NTDTV is not responsible or liable for the actions of these third parties, including how they process personal information or for the content posted on their websites.
V. Are Online Financial Transactions Secure?
NTDTV offers you the convenience of making on-line donations via credit card. NTDTV uses reasonable precautions to keep this and other Personal Information disclosed to us secure. To reduce the risk of unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and help ensure correct usage of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Nonetheless, NTDTV does not guarantee the security, accuracy or completeness of any such procedures. You should be aware that third parties might unlawfully intercept transmissions of Personal Information or misuse or abuse the Personal Information that we collect from you.
We may occasionally modify this privacy statement. All such changes will be reflected on this web page. If you just have a question, comment or concern about how NTDTV uses your Personal Information, simply contact us by email at feedback[at]ntdtv.com* or by U.S. mail to:
