Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting mpbonline.org. Mississippi Public Broadcasting/Foundation for Public Broadcasting (MPB/FPB) is strongly committed to protecting the privacy of its online guests, members, donors, and friends. We believe that maintaining the highest standards of privacy on the Web is crucial to maintaining your trust, in MPB/FPB.  For this reason, we want to inform our visitors about the types of information we collect and how we use that information. 

Information You Give Us

To participate in some activities that we feature on our site, you may be asked to provide some personal identification information. If you do not want this information to be collected or used by us for these purposes, you can simply choose not to submit your information. However, this may prevent your participation in these activities. 

When You Make a Membership Pledge
MPB/FPB will ask you to provide the information necessary to process and service your membership pledge: name, billing and shipping address, telephone number, email address, and credit card number. This information is encrypted for your security and is only seen by our membership staff who processes your gift and our contracted fulfillment agencies. 

When You Complete an Online Survey
MPB/FPB may post surveys on its site. These surveys, which are completely voluntary, may ask about your interests, occupation, educational background, and so on. We use this information only to understand our members and viewers better and to determine how best to serve them. Specific information collected in surveys is never shared with third parties. 

Information Collected Automatically
Our server tracks how you and other visitors use the site, identifying the source of visitors to mpbonline.org and what pages they use on our site. By looking at this “traffic” we can better understand our community, which allows us to improve our web site and to provide you with an optimal experience and better service. 

In order to provide this optimal service and convenience we use “cookies.” A cookie is a temporary code placed in your computer by our server that facilitates communication and saves you time when you browse our web site. Cookies are completely anonymous and help us serve you. When you make a pledge, this information keeps track of items you add to your pledge basket so you can continue to browse our web site until you are ready to check out. At no time does the cookie reveal your name, address, or telephone number (even if you have entered these in other areas of mpbonline.org). You always have the ability to disengage the cookie software on your browser without limiting your ability to make a pledge securely. 

Email
We regularly send newsletters to our registered members and visitors with information about MPB/FPB programs, services or membership opportunities. If you do not wish to receive any email from MPB/FPB, indicate your preference on the pledge form when making a pledge or send an email message with your name to FoundationEmployees@mpbonline.org. We will do our best to make your change in a timely manner. 

MPB/FPB never sells, exchanges or lends to third parties any email or telephone information you provide when making a pledge or subscribing to our online newsletter.

How MPB/FPB Uses this Information

MPB/FPB uses the information you provide to fulfill your membership pledge (see When You Make a Membership Pledge) and to keep you informed of station events and programs. Our staff uses your credit card information to process your pledge and our fulfillment agencies use your address information to mail you your gift.  When you enroll in any sweepstakes featured on our site, independent sweepstakes judges use your information for the sole purposes of selecting and notifying winners.

In no event will MPB/FPB sell, rent, lease, lend, trade, give, donate, transfer, or otherwise exchange, the station’s membership lists with, or acquire such lists from, any candidate for public office, committees or organizations supporting a candidate, political parties, or organizations that solicit funds for use in political campaigns.

Kids

MPB/FPB takes great pride in the responsible and quality content we provide for children. Your continued trust is even more important as kids gain more access to the internet. For this reason we will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from your child. We believe taking this precaution will help ensure the safety, value and enjoyment of your child’s visits to our web site. In the event that your child completes an enrollment form on MPB/FPB’s website and MPB/FPB learns that your child is under the age of thirteen, we will seek to obtain your permission to retain such information by postal mail or telephone. MPB/FPB, with your permission, would use your child’s name, address and email address to process your child’s membership pledge, fulfill a request for an email newsletter subscription or other informational activities.
