W5YI GROUP has created this privacy policy to notify users of our commitment to the privacy of the users of our website and other digital media. Please read the following to learn more about our online privacy policy and how we treat personal information about our visitors and users. Please also review W5YI GROUP Privacy Policy.

This privacy policy covers W5YI GROUP’s treatment of personally identifiable information collected by W5YI GROUP through a website owned and operated by W5YI GROUP.

Except as otherwise specifically noted below, this privacy policy does not apply to the practices of companies that W5YI GROUP does not own or control, or of persons that W5YI GROUP does not employ or manage, including any third-party content contributors bound by contract and any third-party websites to which W5YI GROUP’s website is linked.

Collection and Use of Personal Information
Users can visit the W5YI GROUP website without revealing any personal information. However, W5YI GROUP requires certain personal information if users wish to purchase W5YI GROUP products, become a customer, or request information, or use certain W5YI GROUP services. Where it is required, user information may include personal contact information and/or other personal and personal identification information. W5YI GROUP may or will use this information to reply to user inquiries, to provide users with requested products and services, to communicate information to users, and to contact users regarding W5YI GROUP products and services.

By accessing the online services of W5YI GROUP and voluntarily providing us with the requested personal information, users consent to the collection and use of the information in accordance with this privacy policy.

Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information
W5YI GROUP automatically receives and records non-personal information on our server logs from the user browser including users IP address, cookie information and the page requested. Some of our web pages and applications may send anonymous usage statistics to W5YI GROUP and to our service providers to help us improve our website and content, and better meet the needs of those interested in amateur radio products and services and/or information of licensed amateur operators. W5YI GROUP may use this information to customize the content users see and to fulfill user requests for certain products and services. However, W5YI GROUP may internally connect information that is public record, such as FCC license data and considered non-personal data, to some or any personal information that is collected from users, such as license renewal applications, address changes and modifications submitted to us electronically through our web pages.

Individual IP addresses (which are unique numbers assigned to a users computer or device by users ISP each time a user connects with the Internet) are collected and used in the aggregate only for website analysis. This allows W5YI GROUP to measure, understand and optimize web usage. General information collected includes site traffic patterns, page views, links selected, and search terms. None of the collected information can be used to identify a particular person. Rather, it is only aggregate data that is collected. Most web browsers can be configured to not share website browsing histories. This is called “disable tracking.” It may or may not be available depending on the equipment being used for web browsing and internet access.

There are two types of “cookies” utilized in W5YI GROUP’s website. These are small files of data that are sent to the user’s computer to store data. The first type are used to store information as users navigate the e-commerce store, allowing functions such as adding items to the users shopping basket; to allow a user to navigate W5YI GROUP’s vanity application; and to facilitate use of other forms and applications used throughout the site. These “session cookies” are removed at the end of the activity, such as when the user completes an online order. These are necessary in order for some web functions to work. The other type of cookie is used to help the website remember user information and settings when visited in the future. Users may delete these from their computer or device at any time, but if deleted, information such as stored usernames and login information will have to be reentered the next time the user returns to the site. W5YI GROUP does not use cookies to collect any personal information.

W5YI GROUP also allows third party companies that are presenting advertisements and linking on some of our pages to set and access their cookies on your computer. Again, these cookies are not connected to any personal information. Third party cookie usage is subject to their own privacy policies, and W5YI GROUP assumes no responsibility or liability for this usage.

Information Sharing and Disclosure
W5YI GROUP will not disclose your personal information to third parties except when: We have your express consent to share the information for a specified purpose; We need to respond to subpoenas, court orders or such other legal process; We need to defend the rights or property of W5YI GROUP; or We find that your actions on our website violates any of our usage guidelines for specific products or services.


If you do not consent to the collection, use or disclosure of your personal information as outlined in this policy, please do not provide any personal information to W5YI GROUP. If you have previously provided personal information to W5YI GROUP and no longer consent to its use or disclosure as outlined herein, please notify W5YI GROUP at admin@W5YI.org.



No data transmission over the Internet can be considered 100% secure. However, W5YI GROUP has taken steps to protect your personal information protected for your privacy and security. In certain areas of our websites, as identified on the site, W5YI GROUP uses industry-standard SSL-encryption to protect data transmissions.

We also safeguard your personal information from unauthorized access, through access control procedures, network firewalls and physical security measures.
