The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for Milwaukee Radio Alliance (MRA) web properties including fm1021milwaukee.com, b933fm.com and 1290wmcs.com
The Information We Collect
When you browse any MRA web site, you do so anonymously. At some MRA web sites, you can enter contests, vote in polls or otherwise express an opinion, or participate in one of our online forums or communities. In connection with such activities, we may request that you voluntarily supply us with personally identifiable information. The types of personally identifiable information that may be collected at these pages include: name, address, zip code, e-mail address, telephone number, gender, birth date and information about your interests in and use of various programs, and services. In addition, some MRA web sites offer the ability to integrate with third party social media sites, in which case you may have an opportunity to voluntarily provide additional identifiable information (e.g. your third party social network profile name).
At certain parts of some of MRA web sites, only persons who provide us with the requested personally identifiable information will be able to participate in programs and services or otherwise participate in the site’s activities and offerings. We also may collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit many of our web pages such as the type of browser you are using (e.g., Firefox or Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using, (e.g., Windows XP or Mac OS), the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g., America Online or Comcast) and the search engine from which you were directed (e.g., Google or Yahoo).
How We Use the Information
If you provide us with your e-mail address, or have done so in the past, we may send you e-mail offers, surveys, newsletters or other types of contacts. These are based on information you provided in your membership application, registration forms, in surveys, as well as information available from external sources, such as census bureau data. If you have signed up to receive our e-mails and prefer not to receive marketing information from this site, follow the “unsubscribe” instructions provided on any marketing e-mail you receive from this site.
We sometimes use this information to communicate with you, such as to notify you when you have won one of our contests, to fulfill a request by you for an online newsletter, or to contact you about your account with us. We also use information generally to compile statistical and user profile data and to keep in contact with users and provide them with a better interactive experience. We may use your information specifically for the following purposes: to provide easy access every time you return to the site without requiring re-entry of registration information; to keep you informed about events in which you may have interest; to contact you as part of a promotion; to allow you to make a posting on the site; to administer individual accounts; to provide customer support; to meet legal requirements; to provide Internet security; and/or to analyze the collected information for internal use. For MRA websites which integrate with social media sites (e.g. Facebook), your profile picture and profile name may be displayed on MRA websites (as well as widgets on affiliated websites).
We sometimes use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design and content of our site and to enable us to personalize your Internet experience. We also may use this information in the aggregate to analyze site usage, as well as to offer you products, programs, or services.
We work closely with certain other third parties who may perform functions on our behalf, such as sending e-mail, managing data, or providing customer service. They have access to your personal information only to the extent necessary to perform their functions and may not use it for any other purpose. Rarely, these business partners and other third parties may from time to time wish to extend special offers to you on their own behalf. We may use your personal information to assist our business partners in offering you these products, services and information, either directly or as an intermediary. In addition, information collected by MRA in connection with entering, voting or otherwise participating in any contest, may be shared with sponsors of such contests. By entering, voting or otherwise participating in such contests, you are consenting to us sharing this information with such contest sponsors who may contact you directly.
Cookies & Web Beacons
To enhance your experience with our sites, many of our web pages use “cookies.” Cookies are text files placed in your computer’s browser to store your preferences. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your e-mail address or other personally identifiable information unless you choose to provide this information to us by, for example, registering at one of our sites. Once you choose to furnish the site with personally identifiable information, however, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie.
