About Your Information
WayFM is committed to protecting your privacy. We use the information you share and we collect on the site, over the phone, or information you share in correspondence to enhance your overall experience. We do not sell, trade, or rent your personal information to others.
What information do we collect? How do we use it?
When you do anything on our website – sign up for the newsletter, register for an event, donate, or enter a contest or other promotional feature – we may ask for your name, address (email and street), phone number, and/or other information. Your credit card number and other payment-related information may also be collected in connection to your donation. In addition to the personal information you provide, some nonpersonal information is collected if you browse our website. We will also automatically collect your IP address or other unique identifier (“Device Identifier”) for the device (computer, mobile phone, tablet, or other device) you use to access WayFM.
WayFM also provides links to affiliated sites. The content found on these externally linked sites is not under the control or influence of WayFM. Please browse with caution. The privacy policies for these externally linked sites are the responsibility of the linked sites, and WayFM has no control or influence over their policies. Please check the policies of each site you visit for specific information. WayFM cannot be held liable for damage or misdoings of other sites, linked or otherwise.
WayFM will allow listeners to tell us their story and proclaim “WayFM.” This listener-generated content is subject to WayFM review before publication. WAY-FM will not publish detailed listener information when posting a life story.
How does WayFM protect my information if I make an online donation with my credit card?
We use a direct 128-bit encrypted connection (called SSL), which scrambles all of the information you enter before it is transmitted over the internet and sent to our secure server for collecting personal and credit card information. Furthermore, all of the data we collect is protected against unauthorized access.
Will WayFM disclose the information it collects to outside parties?
WayFM does not sell, trade, or rent personal information, including our mailing list, to others wishing to use the names and addresses of our donors. We may provide aggregate statistics about our customers, sales, traffic patterns, and related site information to reputable third-party vendors; but these statistics will not include personally-identifying information.
WayFM may release account information when we believe, in good faith, that such release is reasonably necessary to (i) comply with law, (ii) enforce or apply the terms of any of our user agreements, or (iii) protect the rights, property, or safety of WayFM, our users, or others.
What about “cookies”?
Internet cookies are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. Depending on how you interact with various parts of our website, our cookies may contain some personally identifying information which gets encrypted (scrambled) before the cookie is saved to your computer.
For instance, your encrypted personal info would look similar to this in your WayFM cookie:
Example name and email address: amFzZQ%3D%3D%25%25%25%25amFzZUB3YXlmbS5jb20%3D
Our website is set up to make sense of this otherwise useless information to help enhance your experience by “remembering” who you are for future visits.
Disclosure Regarding Google Display Advertising
We have implemented Google Analytics features based on Display Advertising (Google Display Network Impression Reporting, the DoubleClick Campaign Manager integration, and Google Analytics Demographics and Interests Reporting). Visitors can opt out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customize Google Display Network ads using the Ads Settings.
We, along with third-party vendors (including Google), use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to report how your ad impressions, other uses of ad services, and interactions with these ad impressions and ad services are related to visits to your site.

Storytelling is a huge part of what we do at WayFM. It allows us to show the impact of the ministry in a tangible way. That being said, privacy is important to us. Therefore, we often change names and use representative photos when telling stories. We never enhance story details, but will adjust to improve flow, grammar or punctuation, while preserving integrity that honors Jesus.
