Privacy and Security

No web services are tied to membership, and we never sell, trade, or give away any personal information about our members.

Electronic Security and Personal Data:

There are four instances of digital interaction with WFUV in which we and our digital partners may collect personal information. None of this data is shared, sold, or traded with other organizations for third party use.

  1. Donation to WFUV via our online forms at Name, contact information and donation history is retained by WFUV for business related to WFUV Membership. If a user gives us permission to contact them via email as part of this transaction, they are added to our email contact database (see below). We do not retain any financial data ourselves; we contract with Allegiance for use of their donation system. "Allegiance Group uses technical and organizational security precautions to protect your data from manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons." [Allegiance Privacy Policy]
  2. Form entries on for MemberLine requests and contests/giveaways. Names and contact methods are maintained by WFUV for fulfillment of these offers and not shared with third parties. If a user gives us permission to contact them via email, they are added to our email contact database (see below). All website traffic (via https in your browser window) is routed through a Comodo secure server.
  3. Email/ENewsletter subscriptions. We ask for consent to opt-in to our email communications. We contract with Constant Contact for our email service, which in a manner consistent with the Privacy Shield program provides the tools to access, edit or delete personal information at any time, which you can request via email. You may unsubscribe at any time using the links at the bottom of every email we send.
  4. Online surveys. WFUV conducts an annual, voluntary survey of listeners in order to provide responsive service to our community. We take part annually in Jacobs Media's Public Radio Tech Survey, also a voluntary questionnaire. The information collected is used in aggregate form - not tied to any individual human being.

We DO NOT collect, store or use any personal information while you visit, download or upgrade our mobile apps. We also do not monitor or collect location information or data from your camera or other sensors.

Note: It's important to make sure whatever Web browser you use is the most recent version available, for security reasons. We like Chrome.

Music Rights:

This is an ASCAP, BMI & SESAC licensed site. We are licensed for songwriting copyright through those agencies, and licensed for performance copyright (through RIAA/Soundscan), for streaming-only distribution of music.

Archived shows with recorded music can be posted for two weeks only. We cannot sell or give you audio copies of any of our programming. We cannot help you download any music from our site, even for your own personal use. We do not own the rights to the songs, so we cannot distribute them; that's copyright infringement.
