Online surveys/Online and On-Air Contests
From time to time, we may conduct online surveys and we may conduct contests either online or over-the-air. To participate in these surveys or contests, we will ask you to submit contact information (such as your name or email address) and possibly demographic information (such as zip code or age). We will use this information to contact you if you are a winner.
Our contest rules allow us to use your name or likeness, or a recording of your voice, in promotional announcements on-air or on our website. By participating in a contest, you consent to our use of your name or likeness, or a recording of your voice, in the event that you win the contest. We may use information collected from contest entries and online surveys to notify you about upcoming station contests, promotions and events. We may also use the information you provide to conduct internal surveys. We maintain a database containing contest winners' information but do not share this information with unaffiliated third parties or advertisers.
If you win a monetary prize in a contest, you will be required to provide your social security number for tax reporting purposes. We will not share your social security number with unaffiliated third parties or use it for any purpose other than mandatory reporting to the IRS.

Banner Advertising and Links to Other Sites
Users should be aware that when they are on the Site they could be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. WFVA may provide links to other sites and banner advertisements. In addition, you may see links from advertisers, sponsors and partners that may use WFVA 's logo as part of a co-branding agreement. If you click on a banner advertisement or a link, the click may take you off the WFVA site. We do not control the contents or links that appear on any other site. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data, or solicit personal information. In addition, these sites or services, including their contents and links, may be constantly changing. These sites and services may have their own privacy policies and terms and conditions of use, or no policies at all. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any third party sites or services before providing any of them with your personal information.
Occasionally we may enter into relationships with other companies to provide additional features at this Site. We may become business partners with other companies, other companies may become sponsors, or we may "co-brand" our site with others. While WFVA promises not to share your personal information with any third parties, any personal information you provide when signing up at one of these co-branded pages may be shared with our third party partner.
When you enter a contest, the data you send is encrypted to protect it from being accessed by others. In addition, it is password protected so that only management personnel can access it. However, WFVA cannot and does not ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us. You transmit information to us at your own risk.
Privacy of Children
WFVA encourages parents and guardians to be aware of and participate in their children's online activities. No information should be submitted or posted at the Site by visitors under 13 years of age without the consent of their parent or guardian. We strictly adhere to the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act and will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from any child under the age of 13 without the prior verifiable consent of that person's parent or guardian.
