Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our information practices (as of 9/18/07) and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.
If you do not agree with the terms of this policy, your sole remedy is to cease using the HowCableShouldBe services and to not submit any information to the site.
On this site we ask you to vote for the cable networks that you would like to keep at a given, estimated monthly price. We then ask you for some basic information to associate with your vote. The fields required for an official vote -- a vote we may use to tell elected representatives, commissioners at the FCC and FTC, cable companies, programming companies and the courts about the urgent need for choice – are as follows:
- First Name
- Last Name
- Street Address
- Zip Code
- E-mail Address
In most cases the votes logged at this site will be presented in an aggregated fashion. For example we might say that consumers in certain state voted in a certain way. Or that consumers in a specific congressional district or, even ZIP code, voted in a certain way. But, with your permission, we will also send your elected representatives your vote.
The information you submit may also be supplied to the Parents Television Council (PTC) and/or their approved agents. PTC may contact you with additional information if you check the box to indicate your willingness to be contacted.
If you are currently affiliated with or are a member of the Parents Television Council and wish to no longer be contacted by them, please contact them directly at http://www.parentstv.org/PTC/publications/ealerts/signup.asp.
Third party research firms and/or subject matter experts may be hired to analyze and organize the data harvested at this site. But they my not contact you unless they are acting as contractors for the Parents Television Council and you checked the box to indicate your willingness to be contacted.
The information you submit to this site will not be sold or supplied to any businesses or not for profit organizations beyond the permission you may or may not grant specifically to the Parents Television Council.
Our website is not directed at children under the age of 13. We prohibit registration by children under the age of 18. We will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 18. If you have any concerns about our web sites or related services, wish to find out if your child voted, or wish to cancel your child's vote, please contact us at privacy@HowCableShouldBe.com.
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect.
Should you have other questions or concerns about these privacy policies, or if you would like to review the information collected from you, please send us an email at privacy@HowCableShouldBe.com.
