In order to provide certain services to you, Mendocino County Public Broadcasting (KZYX) collects information about you via this website. This policy tells you what we collect, how we collect it, how it is used and who has access to it.
For general use of this website, KZYX sets a few simple alphanumeric indicators, AKA "cookies", on your machine in order to identify your browser and to collect non-personal statistical information so we can learn more about how this site is used. If you set your browser so that it does not accept cookies, you can still read the pages on this site.
We gather more detailed information about you when you choose to make a donation via this website. In order to donate you fill out an online form where you tell us basic contact information: your name, address, phone number and email address. Because we accept credit card donations on this site, we also collect the amount of money you wish to donate, whether you want to make a one-time donation or a monthly recurring donation, your credit card type and number, card expiration date, card security code and your card billing address.
We use a third-party site [donorperfect.net] to handle these transactions and to store the data. When you go to our "Join or Donate" page, you are really going to the site operated by Donor Perfect (owned by SofterWare Inc.). Although the data is stored on the Donor Perfect site, the administrative staff at KZYX&Z manages the data. Your personal contact information is stored indefinitely, listing you as either an active member or someone who's membership has expired. If you request it, we can remove all of your information. Call us during regular business hours at 707-895-2324 if you wish to have your information removed from the donor database.
Your credit card payment transaction is handled by another third party, Transfirst. When your transaction is completed and your card is verified and debited, the specific card information (type, number, expiration, security code) is no longer stored. If you choose to make recurring monthly payments using your credit card, your card information is stored by Donor Perfect for the life of the agreed-upon payment period (specified by you in the online form) or until the card expires.
Neither KZYX nor Donor Perfect share, sell or rent any of your personal information with any other entity unless ordered by a court of law. Information submitted to us is only seen and used by MCPB administrative personnel who manage the information on password-protected computers. We use every precaution to protect your information both online and offline.
Mendocino County Public Broadcasting meets Federal and State law regarding donor privacy and data security.
