Privacy Policy

CBS Local Digital Media Privacy Policy

Effective Date: August 26, 2011

CBS Local Digital Media, a division of CBS Radio Inc. (“CBS Local”)

is committed to protecting your privacy. CBS Local owns, operates, or

provides access to, several interactive web sites and other interactive

features that provide an authorized link to this Privacy Policy

(collectively “CBS Local Web Sites”). This Privacy Policy applies only

to the CBS Local Web Sites.

This Privacy Policy describes, among other things, the types of

information collected about you when you visit a CBS Local Web Site;

how your information may be used and when it may be disclosed; how you

can control the use and disclosure of your information; and how your

information is protected.

  1. Scope of Privacy Policy

    This Privacy Policy applies to information, including contact

    information, collected about you by a CBS Local Web Site. This Privacy

    Policy does not cover any information collected through any other web

    site. Please note that some CBS Local Web Sites may contain links to

    non-CBS Local Web Sites. We are not responsible for the privacy

    practices of those sites, and we recommend that you visit the privacy

    policies of each web site that you visit.

  2. Information Collected

    Information you provide directly to CBS Local Web Sites. You are not

    required to provide information about yourself when you visit a CBS

    Local Web Site. CBS Local Web Sites may ask you for some or all of the

    following types of information when you register for certain services,

    access various content or features, or directly contact the CBS Local

    Web Sites:

    • Contact information, such as name, email address, postal address,

      phone number, facsimile number, and mobile number;

    • User name, password, and password reminder questions and answers;
    • Age and date of birth;
    • Other demographic information, such as gender, job information, and

      zip code;

    • Information for a public profile, such as your interests and the

      address of your web site;

    • Communications preferences, such as which newsletters you would

      like to receive;

    • Search queries;
    • In limited circumstances, payment and identity verification

      information, such as credit card number, social security number or

      comparable national identifiers, and driver’s license number where

      needed for payment or to access a particular service (e.g., contests);

    • Contact information about others when you provide information about

      others or refer a friend to a particular site or service (note: such

      information is used solely to facilitate the communications requested);

    • Information posted in community discussions and other interactive

      online features;

    • Correspondence you send to us; and
    • Information collected about you offline (including via facsimile,

      mail, or in person for sweepstakes entrance forms).

    Information we collect automatically on CBS Local Web Sites. CBS

    Local Web Sites may collect certain information automatically,

    including:

    • Your browser type and operating system;
    • Your Internet Protocol (IP) address, which is the number

      automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the

      Internet and that can sometimes be used to derive your general

      geographic area;

    • Sites you visited before and after visiting a CBS Local Web Site;
    • Web pages and advertisements you view and links you click on within

      CBS Local Web Sites;

    • Unique identifiers, including mobile device identification numbers,

      that can identify the physical location of such devices in accordance

      with applicable law;

    • Information collected through cookies, web beacons, and other

      technologies;

    • Information about your interactions with video content, such as the

      type of content viewed, and information about your interactions with

      email messages, such as the links clicked on and whether the messages

      were opened or forwarded;

    • Upon request, your bandwidth speed and information about the

      software programs installed on your computer; and

    • Standard server log information.

    Information we obtain from other sources. We may collect information

    about you from other sources, including through interactive

    applications (such as mobile devices, third-party services, and

    embedded video players), from co-branded partners, and from

    commercially available sources (such as data aggregators and public

    databases). The following are examples of information we may collect

    from other sources:

    • Name, postal address, and telephone number;
    • Demographic data, such as age, gender, and income level;
    • If you access third-party services (such as Facebook Connect)

      through a CBS Local Web Site, your username and password for those

      services and other information available about you on those services;

    • Your interests and purchase behavior;
    • Publicly-observed data, such as activities on blogs, videos, and

      other online postings; and

    • Other navigation data, such as web sites visited and advertisements

      viewed or clicked on.

    Please note that all of the information we collect about you may be

    combined, including to help us tailor our communications to you and to

    develop rich online content and services across the CBS Local Web

    Sites. You also understand that information you provide and make public

    or post to public areas of the CBS Local Web Sites (including your

    name, if provided, and location information) may be accessible by and

    made public through syndication programs and by search engines,

    metasearch tools, crawlers, metacrawlers and other similar

    programs.

  3. Use of Information

    We only use payment and identity verification information, such as

    credit card numbers, driver’s license numbers, social security numbers,

    or comparable national identifiers as necessary for completing a

    particular transaction or fulfilling a service (e.g., paid

    subscriptions or awarding prizes to contest winners) or as otherwise

    required by law.

    We generally use other information we collect about you to:

    • Fulfill your requests for products, services, and information,

      including to send you electronic newsletters, authorize a purchase, and

      complete a transaction that you have requested;

    • Enable you to participate in features such as surveys, polls,

      sweepstakes, and message boards;

    • Provide you with special offers and promotional materials on behalf

      of CBS Local Web Sites, companies within our corporate family, and

      third parties, in accordance with applicable law;

    • Analyze the use of CBS Local Web Sites and information about

      visitors to our Web Sites to understand and improve our service

      offerings;

    • Customize the content you see when you visit a CBS Local Web Site;
    • Develop and provide advertising tailored to your interests, as

      described in our overview of CBS Local online advertising;

    • Prevent potentially prohibited or illegal activities and otherwise

      in accordance with CBS Local’s Terms of Use and

    • For any other purposes disclosed to you at the time we collect your

      information or pursuant to your consent.

  4. Disclosure of Information

    CBS Local is committed to maintaining your trust and we want you to

    understand when and with whom we may share information collected about

    you.

    • With your consent. You may be asked to consent to have your

      contact information shared with third-party business partners. For

      example, CBS Local Web Sites sometimes run contests with prizes

      provided by an advertiser (e.g. a contest with a prize provided by the

      advertiser). When entering such a contest you may be asked if the third

      party may contact you to provide information about their products or

      services or to provide you with special promotional opportunities.

    • Other Users. Certain CBS Local Web Sites may provide

      services which allow users to create and RSVP to events and gatherings.

      Users and/or guests invited to the same events or gatherings as you may

      be able to view the personal information that you provide through your

      account and make public. In addition, other users may choose to email

      you. However, to ensure your privacy, we will not display or give out

      your email address or any other contact information to other users

      unless otherwise indicated in this Privacy Policy. For these services,

      emails will be transmitted through a “double blind” email system, which

      hides the email addresses of both the sender and recipient of the email

      messages to protect the privacy of both the sender and receiver. When

      using the double-blind system, it is up to you to choose when you are

      comfortable disclosing your email address or any other information to

      other users through private communications.

    • Authorized third-party service providers. We share your

      information with third-party vendors who help us with specialized

      services, including customer support, email and text message

      deployment, business analytics, marketing, and data processing. These

      third parties are allowed to use your contact information to help us

      provide our services and not for any other purpose.

    • Sweepstakes, contests, or promotions. When you choose to

      enter a sweepstakes, contest, or other promotion, and in accordance

      with the terms and conditions of the promotion, your information may be

      disclosed to sponsors and third parties who help administer the

      promotion, including in connection with winner selection and prize

      fulfillment. Your information also may be disclosed as required by law,

      such as on a winners list. Also, by entering a promotion, you are

      agreeing to the official rules that govern that promotion, including

      allowing the sponsors to use your name, voice, and likeness in

      advertising and marketing associated with the promotion in accordance

      with applicable law

    • Co-Branded Partners. Co-Branded Partners are third parties

      with whom a CBS Local Web Site may jointly offer a service or feature.

      You can tell when you are accessing a service offered by a Co-Branded

      Partner because the Co-Branded Partner’s name will be featured

      prominently. You may be asked to provide information about yourself to

      register for a service offered by a Co-Branded Partner. In doing so,

      you may be providing your information to both us and the Co-Branded

      Partner, or we may share your information with the Co-Branded Partner.

      Please note that the Co-Branded Partner’s privacy policy may apply to

      its use of your information

    • CBS Local Web Sites and Other CBS Businesses. CBS Local and

      other business units of CBS Corporation, our parent company, continue

      to expand their online presence in order to offer users rich and deep

      interactive experiences. We may share information we collect about you

      within the family of CBS Local Web Sites and with other CBS-affiliated

      companies, so we can provide you with information about products and

      services that might interest you.

    • Business Transfers. We may share your information in

      connection with a substantial corporate transaction, such as the sale

      of a CBS Local Web Site, a merger, consolidation, asset sale, or in the

      unlikely event of bankruptcy.

    • Legal Requirements. We may disclose information about our

      users, including contact information, to respond to subpoenas, court

      orders, legal process, and other law enforcement measures, and to

      comply with other legal obligations, such as FCC requirements.

    • Protect our Web Sites and Users. We may disclose information

      to protect and defend the legal rights, interests, and safety of CBS

      Local Web Sites, other CBS companies, and their employees, agents, and

      contractors (including enforcing our agreements); to protect the safety

      and security of users of the Web Sites and members of the public; and

      as otherwise disclosed in our Terms of Use.

    Please note that we may share information with advertisers as

    described in our overview of CBS Local online advertising. We also may

    share aggregated or anonymized information with third parties,

    including to help us develop content and services we hope you will find

    of interest. This information cannot be used to individually identify

    you.

  5. Your Choices

    You can choose to enjoy content and features on CBS Local Web Sites

    without directly providing us with any information about you; however,

    as described above, some information may automatically be collected or

    may be requested so you can take advantage of certain features and

    services offered on CBS Local Web Sites.

    You can opt out of receiving commercial email or text messages from

    a particular CBS Local Web Site or service by following the

    instructions contained in any such message. Please note that even if

    you unsubscribe to commercial messages, we still may need to send you

    communications relating to your use of the CBS Local Web Sites, such as

    service announcements.

    You have a choice about the display of relevant advertisements by

    third parties; for more information, visit our overview of third-party

    online advertising.

  6. Access

    If you choose to share contact information with us, you may have the

    opportunity to update that information on a CBS Local Web Site. You

    also may update or amend your information by contacting us. If you ask

    us to shut down your account or delete your information, we will

    disable your account within a reasonable period of time. Please note

    that we may need to retain some information about you in order to

    satisfy our legal and security obligations. For example, some of your

    information may remain in back-up storage even if you ask us to delete

    it. In some cases, you may be entitled under local laws to access or

    object to the processing of information that we hold relating to you.

  7. Protection of Information

    We are committed to protecting your information. We have adopted

    commercially reasonable technical, administrative, and physical

    procedures to help protect your information from loss, misuse, and

    alteration. Please note that no data transmission or storage can be

    guaranteed to be 100% secure. We want you to feel confident using CBS

    Local Web Sites but we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any

    information you transmit to us. Please refer to the U.S. Federal Trade

    Commission’s web site for information on how to protect yourself from

    identity theft.

  8. Visiting from Outside the United States

    CBS Local is headquartered in the United States. Please be aware

    that information you provide to us or we obtain as a result of your use

    of the CBS Local Web Sites may be processed and transferred to the

    United States and be subject to United States law. The privacy and data

    protection laws in the United States may not be equivalent to such laws

    in your country of residence. By using and participating in any CBS

    Local Web Site or providing us with your information, you consent to

    the collection, transfer, storage, and processing of information to and

    in the United States.

  9. California Visitors

    Residents of the State of California may request a list of all third

    parties to which a CBS Local Web Site has disclosed certain information

    during the preceding year for the third parties’ direct marketing

    purposes. If you are a California resident and want such a list, please

    contact us. For all requests, you must put the statement “Your

    California Privacy Rights” in the subject field of your email and

    include the name of the CBS Local Web Site with respect to which you

    are requesting the information, as well as your name, street address,

    city, state, and zip code. Please note that we will not accept requests

    via the telephone, mail, or by facsimile, and we are not responsible

    for notices that are not labeled or sent properly, or that do not have

    complete information.

  10. Privacy Protections for Children

    Most CBS Local Web Sites are intended for a general audience and do

    not knowingly collect or store contact information about children under

    the age of 13. Some CBS Local Web Sites may ask for a birth date to

    ensure that they are not collecting information from children under 13

    or to identify when additional steps may need to be taken in connection

    with information collected from children under 18. In those instances

    where a CBS Local Web Site has actual knowledge that it collects

    information from children, or offers a service directed toward

    children, it will comply with applicable laws, including the U.S.

    Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. To read about our privacy

    policy for children under the age of 13, please see the Children’s

    Privacy Policy.

  11. User-Generated Content

    Some CBS Local Web Sites enable users to submit their own content

    for contests, blogs, videos, message boards, and other functions.

    Please remember that any information you disclose becomes public

    information and exercise caution when deciding to disclose your

    contact, financial, and other information in a submission. We cannot

    prevent such information from being used in a manner that may violate

    this Privacy Policy, the law, or your personal privacy and safety.

  12. Cookies, Web Beacons and Other Technologies

    Cookies

    Cookies are small amounts of data that are stored in separate files

    within your computer’s Internet browser. Cookies are accessed and

    recorded by the web sites you visit, and by the companies that show

    advertisements on web sites, so they can recognize the same browser

    navigating online.

    CBS Local Web Sites use cookies for the following general purposes:

    • To help us recognize your browser as a previous visitor and save

      and remember any preferences that may have been set while your browser

      was visiting one of our Web Sites. For example, if you register on a

      CBS Local Web Site, the Web Site may save your password so you do not

      have to re-enter it each time you visit.

    • To help us customize the content and advertisements you are shown

      while visiting CBS Local Web Sites and potentially other web sites

      online. Please read about our online advertising to learn more about

      our efforts to show you relevant advertising.

    • To help measure and research the effectiveness of our interactive

      online content, features, advertisements, and other communications.

    CBS Local Web Sites may also allow third parties to place their own

    cookies within your browser in order to serve you with relevant

    advertising online. Please note that we do not share contact

    information with these third parties and CBS Local can only access

    cookies that we set on your browser, not the cookies sent to you by

    other companies. For more information about the use of cookies by third

    parties for advertising purposes, please read about third-party online

    advertising on CBS Local Web Sites.

    You have the choice to set your browser to accept all cookies,

    reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. (Each browser

    is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to

    change your cookie preferences.) It is up to you whether to allow us or

    third parties to send you cookies, but if you block cookies, you may

    not be able to view or access some or all of a CBS Local Web Site.

    Web Beacons and Other Technologies

    We may use standard Internet technology, such as web beacons and

    similar technologies, to track your use of the CBS Local Web Sites. Web

    beacons (sometimes called transparent GIFs, clear GIFs, or web bugs)

    are small strings of code that provide a way for us to deliver a small

    graphic image (usually invisible) on a web page or in an email. Web

    beacons can recognize certain types of information on your computer

    such as cookies, the time and date a page is viewed, and a description

    of the page where the web beacon is placed.

    We use web beacons to improve your experience on our Web Sites,

    including to provide you with content customized to your interests and

    to understand whether users read email messages and click on links

    contained within those messages so that we can deliver relevant content

    and offers. Our web beacons may collect some contact information (for

    example, the email address associated with an email message that

    contains a web beacon).

    CBS Local Web Sites also may include third-party web beacons so that

    these third parties may receive auditing, research, and reporting

    information about advertisements viewed on the CBS Local Web Sites.

    Third parties do not have access to your contact information in

    connection with their use of web beacons.

    Mobile Devices

    Certain mobile devices contain unique identifiers that can be used,

    for example, to identify the physical location of such devices. Mobile

    devices also typically transmit caller ID data when used to transmit a

    telephone call or text message. CBS Local Web Sites may collect, use,

    transmit, process, and maintain unique identifiers, caller ID data,

    location-based data, and similar information when you rely on mobile

    devices, including to provide the services you request, tell you about

    offers we think you will value, and improve your experience on CBS

    Local Web Sites. CBS Local Web Sites also may require collection of

    your mobile phone number in order for you to participate in certain

    services or features and that number may be associated with such

    information.

    CBS Local Online Advertising

    In order to customize your experience on the CBS Local Web Sites, we

    may use cookies, web beacons, and other technologies to collect

    information about the content and advertisements you view on our Web

    Sites. Based on this information, and other information we may collect

    about you, we try to infer your interests and show content and

    advertising that is more relevant to you. For example, if you access an

    article about computers on one CBS Local Web Site, we may show you a

    computer-related advertisement on another CBS Local Web Site based on

    your apparent interests.

    We also may receive information from third parties about you and

    your activities on other sites for the purpose of serving relevant

    advertisements to you on CBS Local Web Sites. For example, if you

    access an article on a third-party site about computers, we may use

    that information to serve you with a computer-related advertisement on

    a CBS Local Web Site.

    Please note that we may share information about our users with

    advertisers so that they can measure the effectiveness of

    advertisements viewed on the CBS Local Web Sites. For example, we may

    tell advertisers the number of users who clicked on a particular

    advertisement.

    These online-advertising efforts across CBS Local Web Sites do not

    result in you seeing more advertisements, just more relevant

    advertising, and they allow us to provide you with free content and

    services on our Web Sites. We hope you value our efforts to show you

    content and advertising that more closely reflects your interests.

    Some of the advertisements you see on CBS Local Web Sites are

    delivered by third parties. To learn more, please read about

    third-party online advertising.

    Third-Party Online Advertising

    Some of the advertisements you see on CBS Local Web Sites are

    delivered by third parties who also collect information through

    cookies, web beacons, and other technologies about your online

    activities, either on our Web Sites or across the Internet, in an

    effort to understand your interests and deliver you advertisements that

    are tailored to your interests. These third parties include

    advertisers, advertising agencies, and ad networks that may collect

    information when you view or interact with one of their

    advertisements.

    Please note that CBS Local does not have access to the information

    these third parties may collect about your interests to deliver

    relevant advertising to you, and the information practices of these

    third parties are not covered by this Privacy Policy. Third parties

    that currently serve ads on our Web Sites, and thereby may collect

    information about your online activities on such Web Sites to deliver

    tailored ads, include, but are not limited to, Atlas, DoubleClick,

    Eyeblaster, EyeWonder, Omniture, and Pointroll. These companies may

    offer you a way to choose not to have your information used for

    advertising purposes. You can find more information by clicking on the

    company names above and following the links to each company’s web

    site.

    In addition, some of these companies are members of the Network

    Advertising Initiative (“NAI”), which offers a single location to opt

    out of receiving tailored ads from member companies. To opt out of

    information collection by NAI member companies, or to obtain

    information about the technologies they use or their own privacy

    policies, please visit:

    http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.

    Please note that if you choose to opt out of having your information

    used to deliver advertisements tailored to your interests, you will

    continue to see advertisements on our Web Sites, but these

    advertisements may not be as relevant to you.

    For more information about relevant advertisements delivered by CBS

    Local, please read about CBS Local online advertising.

  13. CBS Local and FCC Requirements

    If you send a written communication (including an email) regarding

    the programming or operation of a CBS Local radio or television

    station, your communication may be placed in the public inspection file

    of that station or made available via electronic file access at the

    station. In either case, your communication may be subject to review by

    members of the general public, as required by Federal Communications

    Commission (“FCC”) regulations. Be advised that we are not responsible

    for information that may be disclosed if your communication is made

    available for review by members of the general public in compliance

    with FCC regulations.

  14. Children’s Privacy Policy

    We recognize the need to provide additional privacy protections when

    children visit the sites on which this Children’s Privacy Policy is

    posted. The following guidelines supplement our general Privacy Policy

    and follow the rules set by the U.S. Children’s Online Privacy

    Protection Act and other applicable laws. “Child” means an individual

    under 13 years of age or an individual under 18 where the collection,

    use or disclosure of personal information about such an individual is

    restricted by applicable law. When we use the term “parent” below, we

    mean to include legal guardians.

    Information We Collect

    Children can enjoy content and features on CBS Local Web Sites

    without directly providing contact information. However, children who

    wish to participate in sweepstakes, contests, and certain other special

    activities may need to provide information such as first name, user

    name, password, email address, date of birth, city and state of

    residence, and gender.

    In the course of participating in interactive features such as chat

    rooms and message boards, a child may provide us with additional

    information about himself or herself, such as the contents of his or

    her postings. Some information, including information collected through

    cookies, web beacons, and other technologies, may be collected

    automatically. For more information, see the “information we collect

    automatically (link to Information we collect automatically on CBS

    Local Web Sites)” section of our general Privacy

    Policy.

    If we collect, use, or disclose contact information collected from a

    child, we will provide notice and obtain parental consent in accordance

    with applicable law.

    We do not condition a child’s participation in an online activity on

    the child’s providing more contact information than is reasonably

    necessary to participate in that activity.

    Use of Information

    We use the information we collect consistent with the services

    requested by the child. For example, we may use information provided by

    the child to:

    • Send a newsletter, electronic card, and other communication

      requested by the child;

    • Enable a child’s participation in certain interactive features such

      as games, contests, message boards, chat rooms, song requests, and

      online scrolling tickers; and

    • Respond to correspondence sent by the child.

    In addition, we may use a parent’s contact information to

    communicate with the parent regarding the child’s activities on CBS

    Local Web Sites. For example, if a child wins a sweepstakes or contest,

    we may use the parent’s contact information to conduct prize

    fulfillment.

    Disclosure of Information

    Information collected from children will be disclosed in the same

    ways described in the “Disclosure of Information” section of our

    general Privacy Policy. Third parties who receive

    contact information collected by CBS Local have agreed to maintain the

    confidentiality, security, and integrity of that information. Parents

    have the option not to consent to the disclosure of their child’s

    contact information to third parties. Parents may consent to CBS

    Local’s collection and use of their child’s contact information while

    refusing to permit the disclosure of that information to third

    parties.

    Parents’ Choices and Access to Children’s

    Information

    Parents may review the contact information we have collected from

    their child, refuse to permit us to collect further contact information

    from their child, and request that any contact information we have

    collected be deleted from our records. Parents may also correct factual

    inaccuracies.

    To review, update, or delete your child’s contact information,

    please contact us. You may

    also send your request to the postal address listed below. To protect

    your child’s safety, we ask for proof of your identification. We may

    deny access if we believe there is a question about your identity.

    Certain information cannot be deleted because of other legal

    obligations, such as FCC requirements.

    Changes to the Children’s Privacy Policy

    CBS Local Privacy Policy FAQ

    We have updated our Privacy Policy to provide

    visitors of CBS Local Web Sites with a single, uniform policy

    consistent with our core Privacy Principles. Below, please find answers

    to some questions about our new Privacy Policy. To review the Privacy

    Policy, click here.

    Why are you updating your Privacy Policy?

    We recently joined together with our parent corporation, CBS

    Corporation and certain of its other subsidiaries to offer all of our

    web sites’ users access to a wider array of content and interactive

    experiences. We recognize the importance of providing the users of CBS

    Local Web Sites a Privacy Policy that is consistent with those of other

    CBS Local Web Sites and other web sites of business units of CBS

    Corporation and that is consistent with a set of core Privacy

    Principles followed by those companies.

    Have you made any substantively material changes to the

    Privacy Policy?

    No, we have not made any substantively material changes to our

    Privacy Policy. We have simplified the policy, made it uniform across

    CBS Local Web Sites, and made it easier to follow.

    What is a key difference with the old Privacy

    Policy?

    One of the key differences is that our new Privacy Policy is

    provided in a layered format, allowing you to read highlights of our

    practices upfront with links to additional information about our

    privacy practices.

    What are the “core” privacy principles that CBS Local

    follows?

    Trust is a cornerstone of our mission at CBS Local. We are committed

    to gaining and maintaining your trust by following five key principles:

    transparency, choice, access, security and accountability. For more

    information, click here.

    Will you share my contact information with third

    parties?

    Like other businesses, we share contact information (such as name

    and email address) with vendors who process credit card transactions,

    with business partners who co-sponsor our Web Sites, and when we have

    consent from our users. For more information, click here.

    Can you give me an example of when you will share my information

    with third parties?

    If you enter a sweepstakes that is jointly sponsored by a third

    party, we will share your contact information with that third party.

    Also, if you seek to download a free song from a band or listen to a

    free stream of a band, we might ask you to consent to have your contact

    information shared with third parties who may contact you about

    information concerning that band’s appearances. This allows us to offer

    you valuable content for free.

    Does CBS Local share contact information with other CBS

    Local Web Sites or web sites owned by CBS Corporation?

    As CBS Corporations continues to expand its online offerings, we

    will share information with both CBS Local Web Sites and other web

    sites owned by our parent, CBS Corporation, so we can better inform our

    users about products and services in which they may be interested. It

    is up to you as to whether you want to hear about special offers from

    us or from other business units owned by CBS Corporation. You can

    choose not to receive such marketing emails when you register with us,

    in any such email we send, or by contacting us.

    Do you use my data for advertising on CBS Local Web

    Sites?

    Like other web sites, we are able to offer free content and services

    through the revenue we receive from advertising on our Web Sites. We

    hope you value the advertising you see on our Web Sites, and we may use

    some data about you to tailor advertisements to your apparent

    interests. For example, if you visit a CBS Local Web Site and view

    articles about computers, we may serve you with a computer-related

    advertisement when you visit another CBS Local Web Site. This

    advertising does not result in you seeing more ads; rather, it just

    means the ads you would otherwise see are more relevant. To learn more,

    click here.

    Does CBS Local allow third parties to collect and use data

    about me for online advertising?

    Our advertisers may have relationships with third parties who

    deliver their advertisements on our Web Sites. As part of delivering

    these ads, the third parties may collect and use information about your

    activities on our Web Sites (such as the content you have viewed).

    These companies may offer you a way to choose not to have your

    information used for advertising purposes. To learn more, click here.

    What are the benefits of the new Privacy Policy to

    me?

    We hope you will find our Privacy Policy easier to read and

    understand across all CBS Local Web Sites. We are committed to gaining

    and maintaining your trust. If you have any questions about our Privacy Policy, please contact us.
