with a credit card. We take the security of your credit card information very
seriously. All information from financial transactions made on idahoptv.org
are stored and collected from a secure server. This means that each page you

its way between your computer and ours. Even in the highly unlikely event that
your transmission is intercepted, the data will not be usable by a third party.
Your credit card information is used
only for your intended purpose - whether it a membership contribution or a purchase
- and nothing else. However, please be advised that Idaho Public Television
has no control over the privacy policies of sites that are linked to ours. For
all online financial transactions you make through organizations that link to

Children's Online Privacy
We will not collect personally identifiable
information from your child without first obtaining your permission. If your
child submits stories, artwork, comments or anything else to us which is posted
at our site, he or she will be identified only by first name, age or grade level,
city and state. No other personal information will be displayed unless you give
us permission to do so.
Again, please be advised that
idahoptv.org has links to third party sites. Since we are not responsible
for the content or safety and privacy practices of those sites, we encourage
adults and children to discuss these choices together before giving out
any information at these outside sites.
If we know that your child
is under the age of thirteen, we will collect your permission offline
(by postal mail, fax or phone) before we mail any prizes or take any further
action with your child's personal information.
Several times during the year,
Idaho Public Television offers contests for children. After receiving
parental permission, we post the first names of the winners and selections
of the child's submission. As an option, you, as the parent may choose
not to have your child's name on our website at all.
All links on children's pages
to third party sites are insulated with a bridge page (except links to
PBS). These pages clearly notify the visitor that he or she is leaving
Idaho Public Television, and offers an opportunity to return to our site.
Each bridge page displays a Web literacy tip, educating visitors how to
be safe on the Internet. Since we cannot be assured that links to outside
sites follow our safety or privacy guidelines, we encourage adults and
children to discuss these choices together. We are not responsible for
the content or safety and privacy practices at any sites linked from our
