Privacy policy
The Public Media Alliance respects your privacy. The PMA from time to time may request personally identifiable information, such as names, addresses, postcodes, email addresses. Any information we do collect is kept strictly confidential and will not be sold, reused, rented, loaned, or otherwise disclosed in ways that you have not consented to.

The PMA website uses Google Analytics to help analyse website statistics. This analytical tool uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to collect standard internet log information and visitor behaviour information in an anonymous format. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) is transmitted to Google. This information is then used to evaluate how the PMA website is being used, and to generate statistical reports.

The Public Media Alliance will not (and will not allow any third party) to use the statistical analytics tool to track or to collect any personally identifiable information of visitors to this website. We will not associate any data gathered from this site with any personally identifying information from any source as part of our use of the Google Analytics tool.

There are some links on the PMA website which, when clicked upon, will take you to an external site. This Privacy Policy only applies to http://publicmediaalliance.org and not to any third party sites. Once you leave the PMA’s website, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of such other websites, even if our name and logo appear on the screen (any PMA-hosted web page will use the publicmediaalliance.org address). We recommend reviewing the privacy policies on third party sites before entering any personal information.
