(2) Personally Identifiable Information. CPBI collects personally identifiable

purposes. This personally identifiable information is provided by you
voluntarily and you may voluntarily supply this information in connection with

networks), (iii) making an online donation, (iv) sending correspondence to CPBI,
(v) submitting a photo or other User Generated Content, and (vi) e-commerce
transactions. CPBI will not collect personally identifiable information from

the information is gathered. Any information you submit on or through social
networking features, as part of a story, blog comments forums or discussions,
or in response to CPBI’s request for User Generated Content may become public,
including the full name and/or nickname you provide when submitting.
(4) Non-personally Identifiable Information. CPBI may collect non-personally identifiable information, such
as IP addresses and cookies, which includes tracking information collected as

and applications, including any feature of these sites andapplications (“CPBI
Mobile Services”), CPBI collects a device’s operating system, phone model,
application version, automobile make, and content preferences. CPBI also may
collect in the future geolocation data through the CPBI Services. Geolocation
data consists of general location information based on latitude and longitude,
rounded to a few miles radius, or based on IP addresses.
Like all Webservers, CPBI’s Webserver automatically creates log files for each
visitor who accesses the CPBI Services. These “access logs” allow us to improve
and make our site and services more useful to our visitors. By reviewing these
logs, we can better understand our visitors which allows us to improve the
Services, the site and to provide you with an optimal experience and better
service. At no time do the logs reveal your name, address, or email address,
even if you have entered these in other areas while using the Service. The CPBI
Service pages cannot extract any personally-identifiable information about you.
(b) As is common practice among web sites, we use “cookies” and similar
technologies. In general, cookies — the informational files that your web
browser places on your computer when you visit a website — are used to track
and analyze how you and other visitors use our Site. We use these cookies in
order to improve the CPBI Services, to identify the source of visitors and what
pages your using of the CPBI Services, to offer visitors interactive and/or
personalized features that would not be possible without the cookies, to recall
specific information to save visitors time when they return to use the CPBI
Services, to provide our sponsors targeted sponsorship opportunities, to
provide visitors customized sponsorship messages or list of customized videos
of interest, and to identify usage and statistical trends. By looking at this
traffic we can better understand our community, which allows us to improve the
CPBI Services and to provide you with an optimal experience and better service.
Our sponsorship service vendors, which serve sponsorship messages onto our
site, and third party vendors that measure and analyze the use of the CPBI
Services for us, may also use their own cookies. At no time does the cookie
reveal your name, address, or e-mail address (even if you have entered these in
specific areas of the Site). The CPBI Services pages cannot extract any
personally identifying information about you from what we receive via a cookie
and your browser.
(c) Opt-Out. If you so choose, you may set your browser preferences to refuse
cookies or alert you when cookies are being sent. However, some parts of the
CPBI Services may not function properly if you do so. Opting out is
cookie-based and will only affect the specific computer and browser on which
the opt-out is applied. If you subsequently delete your browser cookies, you
will need to opt-out again.
(B) Use of Information
CPBI, or any third party vendor acting on CPBI’s behalf to assist in delivering
and operating the CPBI Services, will not willfully disclose any
personally-identifiable information about online users or website visitors to
any non-affiliated third party without first receiving the user or visitor’s
permission or unless required by law.
The use of personally-identifiable information is limited to the following
activities, should they exist currently or become available in the future:
managing and administering the CPBI Services; responding to user messages;
listing name and location (city, state and/or country) information provided by users
when broadcasting or publishing User Generated Materials; fulfillment of
purchases made through the CPBI Services; offering access to CPBI tours and
events; contest management; editorial purposes such as contacting users for an
online survey; sending CPBI e-mail newsletters and other communications,
including marketing and promotional communications, from CPBI or CPBI member
stations to users who have ‘opted in’ to the receipt of such communications;
other internal CPBI or CPBI member station purposes; and other purposes
specified at the time the information is gathered. Any geolocation data
collected through CPBI Services is used to offer relevant content, including
content from nearby Member stations to the visitor. CPBI may contact users
regarding their submissions in certain circumstances.
Social Networking. Any information that you disclose when participating in the
CPBI social networking features, forums or discussions, such as your full name
and any nickname, is likely to become public. This information may be posted on
the CPBI Services and on the platform of CPBI’s third party discussion services
vendor. In addition, CPBI, its member stations and their licensees, may use,
copy, sublicense, modify, transmit, publicly perform, display, create
derivative works of, host, index, cache, tag, encode, and/or adapt any User
Generated Content, and any information contained therein, in any and all media
formats or channels, whether now known or hereafter devised, including, but not
limited to, the CPBI Services, CPBI member station web sites and services,
other third party web sites and services, over the air (on radio or
television), and on mobile platforms. If you send User Generated Content to CPBI
through the CPBI Services, we may print the User Generated Content, or an
excerpt from the User Generated Content, on the CPBI Services, read them on
air, or otherwise publish them in any other medium, together with your name and
location (city, state and/or country) if you provide that information to CPBI.
Opt-out. If you do not want your personally-identifiable information to be
collected or used for any of the above-mentioned purposes, please do not
provide it (please note that opting out of providing some
personally-identifiable information may cause you to not be able to use or
participate in certain features of the CPBI Services).

unless specified and the user consents at the time of the submission.
CPBI reserves the right to send you email relating to CPBI Services or account
status. This may include order confirmations, notices of credit card problems,
other transactional emails and notifications about major changes to the CPBI

your participation in those activities.
CPBI offers and may offer in the future several e-mail newsletters and emails.

e-mailings. If you no longer wish to receive a specific newsletter, follow the
“unsubscribe” instructions located in each newsletter or email, or go to the
Site’s Contact Us page and send us a message. We will update our records as
soon as possible.
CPBI, with the assistance from time to time of its third party service vendors,
uses non-identifying aggregate information to analyze use of and better design
the CPBI Services and to share with third parties in aggregate form only as
appropriate. For example, we may tell a third party that a certain number of
users accessed a particular video on a site. However, we will not disclose any
information that could be used to identify those users.
(C) Security of Information
has in place what it believes to be appropriate physical, electronic, and
managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect
online. Credit card information submitted to any of CPBI Services is protected
against unauthorized use by Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) security features. The
SSL protocol is the industry standard method for creating an encrypted, secure
connection between your web browser and a web server, such as the Site’s
server. You should, however, keep in mind that no Internet or e-mail
transmission is ever fully secure or error free. Because most e-mail is not
encrypted, you should take special care in deciding what information you send
to us via e-mail.
