KSER Foundation Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting the KSER Foundation website and reviewing our privacy policy.

As a matter of policy the KSER Foundation, owner and operator of 90.7fm KSER, uses the Privacy Act of 1974 as a guide in providing services to the public. KSER adheres to the AFP Donor Bill of Rights in all of our relations with donors to KSER.

We will collect no personally identifying information about you when you visit our web site unless you choose to provide that information to us. The information we collect depends upon what you do when visiting our site. In order to participate in some activities, you might be asked to provide some personally identifiable information. This might be in connection with a contest registration, a class registration or volunteer application, a subscription to email newsletters, requests for membership information, fulfillment of membership and thank you gifts, gathering editorial comments and feedback, content submissions like comments and suggestions or votes, or online surveys. In the case of surveys, the information you provide would be used only in aggregate to describe our audience and to assist us in better serving you.

If you do not want personal information that you voluntarily supply used by us for these purposes, you may "opt out" by explicitly informing us. Please note, however, under certain circumstances, opting out may prevent your participation in activities for which personal information is needed, such as contests.

KSER Foundation may use your personal contact information for fundraising, marketing and promotional purposes for our station only.

If you identify yourself by submitting the Donate Now or other online form to make a gift to or a purchase from KSER:

You may choose to provide personal information to make an online gift to or make a purchase from KSER. This information may include your name, address, telephone number, email address and credit card number. All credit card donations are handled by our partner, Sage Nonprofit Solutions. Sage Nonprofit Solution’s privacy and security policy governs the handling of your personally identifiable information and credit/debit card information. KSER does not collect or store your credit or debit card number through our website. Credit or debit card numbers obtained during our pledge drives, mail solicitations, and other events are secured until processed, and then promptly shredded. We do not store your credit/debit card or bank account information once your donation has been processed.

KSER Foundation will not willfully disclose your personal information to any third party except those under contract with KSER to perform legitimate fundraising activities (e.g. our credit card processors, car donations program, online store vendor, and other approved fundraising organizations with whom KSER may partner.) 

The KSER Foundation may use your contact information to advise you of other opportunities to support KSER. KSER will not share this information with any third parties except to process your gift. When you make your online gift or any time afterward, you may request that KSER refrain from contacting you in the future about support opportunities by checking the appropriate box on the Pledge form or e-mailing us at

The KSER website does not use “cookies” to track website visitors.  Cookies are small text files placed on your hard drive by a Web site when you visit. These files identify your computer and record your preferences and other non-personally identifiable data about your visit so that, when you return to the site, the site knows who you are and can personalize your visit.

At this time, we do not permit third-party advertisers on the KSER website. If in the future we permit third parties to advertise on our Site, advertisers that serve ads on our Site may also collect their own non-personally identifiable information about your computer, using “cookies”. Such outside cookies are governed by the privacy policies of the entities placing the ads, and are not subject to this Policy.

We use all of the information that we collect only to help us make our site more useful to visitors—-to learn about the number of visitors to our site and the types of technology our visitors use. We do not track or record information about individuals and their visits. We may compile and report aggregate statistics about our users — numbers, traffic patterns, and related site information — but these statistics will include no personally identifying information.

List Exchange Policy
Long-term support from our individual members is critical to fulfilling the KSER Foundation's mission of service to the community. Maintaining and preserving a strong, trusting relationship with our members is key to this vital source of support.

Finding more individuals to join in supporting our services is also vital to the long-term success of our organization. Individuals who have contributed to organizations similar to ours are among the most likely to also be loyal supporters of the KSER Foundation. Access to lists of donors to these community organizations is also a vital element of our efforts to raise the money needed to provide our services.

Balancing the needs and desires of our contributors along with meeting the need for efficient and effective fundraising practices are the principles that serve as the underpinning of our list exchange policy. The purpose of this policy is to ensure that we conduct our fundraising in compliance with nationally established guidelines while ensuring that our member's trust and faith in us is well placed and deserved.

KSER Foundation will, on occasion, rent membership lists from other well-established charitable, cultural non-profit, or other organizations. We will not rent member's names from any candidate for public office, committees or organizations supporting a candidate, political parties, or organizations that solicit funds for use in political campaigns for any purpose. We believe that the opportunities for increased financial support and the cost reductions resulting from list exchanges conducted within the guidelines of this policy will help us deliver more and higher quality mission-related services to the public.

KSER does not rent or share our member list with any outside organizations or groups. Member information is kept strictly confidential. By station policy and by federal law, KSER will never trade its list with any partisan group, political party, or party committee, even if it is non-profit.

In acquiring lists, the following principles will always apply:

  • We will maintain complete and accurate records of the origins of membership and potential donor lists for at least such time as required by law.
  • We may enter into agreements with outside companies in fulfillment of member premiums or an "affinity" program, such as a member-card. We will only enter into an "affinity" program that would offer our members a quality product at or below market price.
  • We will not rent lists from any organization if we believe doing so may endanger the trust between the KSER Foundation and its members.
  • We will comply with the laws and regulations of the Internal Revenue Service, the State of Washington, the United States Postal Service, and the Federal Communications Commission.
