Privacy Policy

CW14online.com Privacy Policy

The following Privacy Policy governs the online information collection
practices of cw14online.com (“we” or “us”). Specifically, it outlines the types
of information that we gather about you while you are using the cw14online.com
web site (the “Site”) and the ways in which we use this information. This
Privacy Policy, including our children’s privacy statement, does not apply to
any information you may provide to us or that we may collect offline and/or
through other means (for example, at a live event, via telephone, or through the
mail).

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. By visiting and using
the Site, you agree that your use of our Site, and any dispute over privacy, is
governed by this Privacy Policy and our Terms and Conditions. We may need to
change our Privacy Policy at some point in the future, in which case we’ll post
the changes to this Privacy Policy on the Site and update the Effective Date of
the policy to reflect the date of the changes. By continuing to use the Site
after we post any such changes, you accept the Privacy Policy as modified.

How We Collect and Use Information
We may collect
and store personal or other information that you voluntarily supply to us online
while using the Site (e.g., while on the Site or in responding via email to a
feature provided on the Site). We also collect and store information that is
generated automatically as you navigate online through the Site. For example, we
may collect information about your computer’s connection to the Internet, which
allows us, among other things, to improve the delivery of our web pages to you
and to measure traffic on the Site. We also may use a standard feature found in
browser software called a “cookie” to enhance your experience with the Site.
Cookies are small files that your web browser places on your hard drive for
record-keeping purposes. By showing how and when visitors use the Site, cookies
help us deliver advertisements, identify how many unique users visit us, and
track user trends and patterns. They also prevent you from having to re-enter
your preferences on certain areas of the Site where you may have entered
preference information before. The Site also may use web beacons (single-pixel
graphic files also known as “transparent GIFs”) to access cookies and to count
users who visit the Site or open HTML-formatted email messages.

We use
the information we collect from you while you are using the Site in a variety of
ways, including using the information to customize features and advertising that
appear on the Site. We also may provide your information to third parties, such
as service providers, contractors, and advertisers, for a variety of purposes.
We reserve the right to use, and to disclose to third parties, all of the
information collected from and about you while you are using the Site in any way
and for any purpose, including without limitation, to enable us or a third party
to provide you with information about products and services.

Please keep
in mind that whenever you voluntarily make your personal information available
for viewing by third parties online – for example on message boards, web logs,
through email, or in chat areas – that information can be seen, collected and
used by others besides us. We cannot be responsible for any third-party use of
such information.

Some of our third-party advertisers and ad servers
that place and present advertising on the Site also may collect information from
you via cookies, web beacons or similar technologies. These third-party
advertisers and ad servers may use the information they collect to help present
their advertisements, to help measure and research the advertisements’
effectiveness, or for other purposes. The use and collection of your information
by these third-party advertisers and ad servers is governed by the relevant
third-party’s privacy policy and is not covered by our Privacy Policy. Indeed,
the privacy policies of these third-party advertisers and ad servers may be
different from ours. If you have any concerns about a third party’s use of
cookies or web beacons or use of your information, you should visit that party’s
web site and review its privacy policy.

The Site also includes links to
other web sites and provides access to products and services offered by third
parties, whose privacy policies we do not control. When you access another web
site or purchase third-party products or services through the Site, use of any
information you provide is governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the
site you are visiting or the provider of such products or services. Be aware
that we may occasionally release information about our visitors when release is
appropriate to comply with law or to protect the rights, property or safety of
users of the Site or the public or when we otherwise believe release is
appropriate in our sole discretion.

Please also note that as our
business grows, we may buy or sell various assets. In the event that we sell
some or all of our assets, or one or more of our web sites is acquired by
another company, information about our users may be among the transferred
assets. In the event of such a transfer, we cannot guarantee that this Privacy
Policy will continue to govern your information.

We do not generally
keep email correspondence, except for those emails that relate to the on-air
programs or operations of CW 14 WCWF-TV. As required by the Federal
Communications Commission (“FCC”), if any part of your email correspondence
relates to station programming or operations, we must place such correspondence
in the station’s FCC Public Inspection File. Therefore, be informed that your
personal information contained in certain emails, including personal information
knowingly received from a child under the age of thirteen, will be disclosed to
the general public, including, but not limited to, disclosure on the Site. We
request that you not place any confidential personal information in your email
correspondence to the station that pertains to station programming or
operations. You understand and agree that we are not responsible for personal
information that is disclosed in emails that are made available to the general
public in compliance with FCC regulations.

Children’s Privacy
Statement

This children’s privacy statement explains our practices
with respect to the online collection and use of personal information from
children under the age of thirteen, and provides important information regarding
their rights under federal law with respect to such information.

The
Site is not directed to children under the age of thirteen and we do not
knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the
age of thirteen as part of the Site. We screen users who wish to provide
personal information in order to prevent users under the age of thirteen from
providing such information. If we become aware that we have inadvertently
received personally identifiable information from a user under the age of
thirteen as part of the Site, we will delete such information from our records.
If we change our practices in the future, we will obtain prior, verifiable
parental consent before collecting any personally identifiable information from
children under the age of thirteen as part of the Site.

The provisions
of this Privacy Policy relating to the collection and retention of the personal
information of a child under the age of thirteen do not apply where such
information was submitted as correspondence relating to station programming and
operations.
