About Your Information
What information do we collect? How do we use it?
When you donate or enter a contest or other promotional feature, or communicate with us via a form on our site, we may ask for your name, address, and email address or other information. This is so that we can administer the donation or contest, notify winners, contact donors, and respond to inquiries. WAY-FM does not sell, trade, rent or share your personal information in any way.
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here .

How does WAY-FM protect my information if I make an online donation with my credit card?
We use a direct 128-bit encrypted connection (called SSL) which scrambles all of the information you enter before it is transmitted over the internet and sent to our Secure Server for collecting personal and credit card information. Furthermore, all of the data we collect is protected against unauthorized access.
Will WAY-FM disclose the information it collects to outside parties?
WAY-FM does not sell, trade or rent personal information, including our mailing list, to others wishing to use the names and addresses of our supporters. We maintain tight security on our list of friends and supporters. We may provide aggregate statistics about our customers, sales, traffic patterns, and related site information to reputable third-party vendors, but these statistics will not include personally identifying information.
WAY-FM may release account information when we believe, in good faith, that such release is reasonably necessary to (i) comply with law, (ii) enforce or apply the terms of any of our user agreements or (iii) protect the rights, property or safety of WAY-FM, our users, or others.
What about “cookies”?

Our website is set up to make sense out of this otherwise useless information to help enhance your experience by “remembering” who you are for future visits. We want to be your elephant.
Disclosure Regarding Google Display Advertising
We have implemented Google Analytics features based on Display Advertising ( Google Display Network Impression Reporting, the DoubleClick Campaign Manager integration, and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting). Visitors can opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customize Google Display Network ads using the Ads Settings.
We, along with third-party vendors, including Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to report how your ad impressions, other uses of ad services, and interactions with these ad impressions and ad services are related to visits to your site.
