This policy is your guide to how we will handle information we learn about you from your visit to our website.
Gathering of Information
Like all other web servers, Capital Public Radio's web server automatically creates log files for each visitor who accesses our site. These access logs allow us to make our site more useful to our visitors. The access logs do not record a visitor's name, address, phone number, credit card numbers, or any other personally identifying information. Rather, they contain some or all of the following information:
- The Internet Protocol Address (IP Address) of the machine which accessed our website.
- The date of the visit.
- The time of the visit.
- The path taken through our website.
- The browser and operating system being used.
- A list of files downloaded or viewed.
- The amount of time spent listening to/viewing media files or streaming audio.
- Any errors encountered.
Capital Public Radio asks visitors to provide certain personal information when they join or renew their membership online,, complete a survey, or subscribe to an e-newsletter. Capital Public Radio also may ask visitors to provide personal information in other limited circumstances, specified at the time the information is gathered, such as a special event where registration information is gathered online.

Use of Information
The information collected by Capital Public Radio on our website is used for internal CapRadio station purposes. The use of personal information includes the following: membership management, special event management, editorial and feedback purposes, CapRadio's marketing and promotional purposes, or other internal CapRadio station purposes.

Sending us an Email
You also may decide to send us personally identifying information, for example, in an electronic mail message containing a question or comment, or by filling out a web form that provides us this information. We use personally identifying information from email primarily to respond to your requests. We may forward your email to other employees who are better able to answer you questions. We may also use your email to contact you in the future about our programs that may be of interest.
We want to be very clear: We will not obtain personally identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information to us. Providing such information is strictly voluntary.
If you sign up for one of our email lists, we will only send you the kinds of information you have requested. We won't share your name or email address with any outside parties.
Opt-Out or Change Your Contact Information
Our site provides users the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us through a special online form. You may choose to receive only specific communications or none at all. You may also update your contact information previously provided to us through another online form. You can not remove yourself from our database, but you can prevent unwanted communication.
You can opt-out of email communication by unsubscribing by following a link at the bottom of any e-newsletter message. Transactional messages, such as a receipt for an online donation can not be opted out of.
Under 13: If you are under 13 years of age, please do not send any information about yourself, including your name, address or e-mail address. If we discover that we have collected any personally identifying information from a child under the age of 13, we will remove that information from our database as soon as possible.
