You may visit the WETA Websites without voluntarily supplying any personally identifiable information about yourself. The WETA Websites do not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you voluntarily provide that information. To make use of certain features on the WETA Websites, such as Contact Us forms, subscribing to various newsletters, or supporting WETA with a monetary donation, you will need to provide your personally identifiable information. The information you supply will help us to offer you more personalized features, to tailor our sites to your interests and make them more useful to you. Supplying such information is entirely voluntary. But if you don't supply the information, we may be unable to provide you with services that are available to others.
Email and Email Newsletters
WETA may collect personal information from you in connection with Email and Email newsletters. Subscribing is entirely optional, but you must provide some personally identifying information, such as your email address, to do so. This information will be used as indicated at the time you provide the information.
Most of WETA’s Websites** offer you the opportunity to make a donation in support of WETA, or a particular project of WETA. To make a donation online, you must provide personally identifiable information including, but not limited to, your name, address, and credit card number. To provide the highest level of security possible to protect your personally identifiable information, WETA hires trusted third parties to process your donations via credit card. We require these select third parties to hold your personally identifiable information in strict confidence. These third parties were selected for their high security standards, and they understand WETA’s expectation that they will treat your personally identifiable information confidentially and responsibly. You will know that you have left a WETA Website and entered the website of a trusted third party by looking at the URL of the web page you are viewing.
Forums, Feedback, and Other Submissions
The WETA Websites may offer you various opportunities to interact with WETA or other visitors to the Websites, such as with online forums, bulletin boards, feedback forms, surveys, or contests. WETA may require that you submit select personally identifiable information to participate in these opportunities for interaction. For example, you must complete a free registration process, which requires select personally identifiable information, to participate in online forums. Your participation and submission of personally identifiable information in connection with your participation will always be optional, however, if you choose not to provide your personally identifiable information, you may not be eligible to participate in these activities.
