Vegas PBS Privacy Policy

Vegas PBS is committed to protecting online users’ privacy. We believe that protection of personal privacy on the Internet is our responsibility, to assure community confidence, increase participation in online activities and support effective delivery of services. Vegas PBS intends to give you as much control as possible over your personal information. The purpose of our policy is to inform you about the types of information we gather when you visit our site, how we may use that information, whether we disclose it to anyone, and the choices you have regarding our use of, and your ability to correct, the information.

Privacy Policy

If you send us an electronic mail message with a question or comment that contains personally identifying information, or fill out a form that e-mails us this information, we will only use the personally identifiable information to respond to your request and analyze trends. We collect some information that is used for analysis and statistical purposes that helps us manage the Vegas PBS website.

  • We automatically collect electronically generated information about your visit to our site, such as the date, type of browser used, and technical Internet protocol data. We collect this information about each user session from our user logs, and refer to it in summary form for statistical purposes.
  • Information that you provide us when using our interactive forms and functions. This information may include such things as name, address, telephone number, and other personal and business data, depending on the particular service you use. We collect only that data necessary to provide the service that you are requesting.

Control of Personal Information

At any time while online and accessing our site, any user may decline participation in any activity that asks for information (i.e. survey, e-mail or e-forms). Your choice not to participate will in no way affect your ability to use any other feature on our site. In online applications that ask for personal information, you also are provided the option of canceling or "clearing all fields" of information and terminating the application.

Use of Cookies

We do not use "persistent" cookies to collect permanent information. We may use "persistent" cookies (which would reside on the user’s computer) to increase the ease of use of the Vegas PBS website. Such a cookie might contain the user’s session ID number, thereby relieving the user of having to enter the number. Under this circumstance, we will only use a "persistent" cookie when you give your permission.

We may use "non-persistent" cookies in applications that keep track of a user’s online session and make it possible for you to complete a form or use a function, but this cookie disappears when you finish filling out an application, or searching a database

Disclosure to Third Parties

We are governed by public records laws. Any information that we receive through use of our site is subject to the same provisions as information provided on paper. Otherwise, we do not share personal identifying information with any third party without your permission. We disclose only in aggregate form our statistical analyses or demographics of users to third parties. This information is not reported or used in any manner that would reveal personally identifiable information, and will not be released to any outside parties unless we are legally required to do so in connection with law enforcement investigations or other legal proceedings.
