The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for CW IN’s website CWINTV.com and digital platforms including, without limitation, mobile/tablet applications.
The Information We Collect
When you browse the CW IN web site, you do so anonymously. On the CW IN website, you can enter contests, vote in polls or submit information via a form. 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, fax number, gender, birth date and information about your interests in and use of various products, programs, and services. In addition, the CW IN website offers 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 the CW IN website, 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 10 or Mac OS), the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g., Spectrum 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 email offers, surveys, newsletters or other types of contacts. These are based on information you provided in your membership application, registration forms, in surveys, from information that may indicate purchasing preferences and lifestyle, 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, to perform research using the compiled, 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 products and services in which you may have interest; to complete business transactions; 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 and use this data for contacts by research firms.
For the CW IN website which integrates with social media sites (e.g. Facebook), your profile picture and profile name may be displayed on the CW IN website.
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 our business partners and certain other third parties who may perform functions on our behalf, such as fulfilling orders, providing promotional materials to our users, sending e-mail, managing data, processing credit card payments 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.
Further, 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 (e.g., sending you an e-mail on their behalf). In addition, information collected by CW IN 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.
The data you provide is used to enhance the services we offer. As a result of providing personal information, CW IN can provide a more customized online experience, making your interaction with us more productive, helpful and fun. You can also expect to receive occasional communications targeted directly toward your lifestyle interests.
