Northern Public Radio’s Privacy Policy

Northern Public Radio recognizes that visitors to our sites may be concerned about the information they share with us and how we treat that information. Northern Public Radio is committed to protecting the privacy and security of users of our site. This statement describes our privacy policy. By visiting northernpublicradio.org, wnij.org and/or wniu.org, you signify your agreement to the terms and conditions of Northern Public Radio’s Privacy Policy.

Personal Information Collected

  • Northern Public Radio does not collect personally identifying information from the websites unless you choose to provide that information to us.
  • We may request personal information when you: make a donation to Northern Public Radio; participate in discussion groups, bulletin board, games or surveys; make e-mail transactions; or request additional information. We may publish or broadcast this information, such as your name, when we thank/list donors to the station. Please email nprmember@niu.edu or call (815)753-0067 to request your name not be shared.
  • Northern Public Radio does not use “cookies” or other methods of user tracking—except in the Northern Public Radio Discussion Forum. The Discussion Forum uses cookies to store information on your local computer so that you may log in automatically. Should you have your browser set to not store cookies, you will still be able to use the forum. The e-mail address you register with is used only for confirming your registration details and password—and for sending new passwords should you forget yours.

Use of Information

  • Information may be used by Northern Public Radio to: process and fulfill your membership requests; manage a contest or game; gather your editorial comments and feedback; contact you for additional information or administrative purposes. You may also receive e-mails regarding future programs and other station information; you may choose to “opt-out” of receiving this e-mail information.
  • Unless explicitly stated otherwise at the time of submission, Northern Public Radio will not sell, share, exchange or rent your e-mail address or phone number.

Credit Card Information Security

  • We take all appropriate steps to protect your privacy. We always use industry-standard SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption technologies when transferring sensitive information (such as credit card numbers), and visitors are notified that they are submitting information via a secured server. We have appropriate security measures in place at our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of the information we collect from you on this site.

Links to Third Party Sites

  • We provide links to third party sites. As we do not control these sites, we request that you review the privacy policies posted on these third party sites. Northern Public Radio is not responsible for any materials or information on third party web sites or the respective privacy practices of these sites.


  • Visitors between the ages of 13 and 18 must obtain permission from their parents or guardians before participating in any Northern Public Radio on-line activities, or providing any personally identifying information. Visitors under age 13 are asked not to provide personally identifying information. Should Northern Public Radio learn that it has collected such information, it will be removed from our databases as soon as possible.
