Radiocasters Privacy Policy

This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) applies to all visitors and users of the Radiocasters.com hosted services and websites (collectively, the “Website” or “Websites”), which are offered by Radiocasters and/or any of its affiliates (“Radiocasters” or “we” or “us”). Self-hosted Radiocasters instances or content are not included in the definition of Website. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. By accessing or using any part of the Websites, you acknowledge you have been informed of and consent to our practices with regard to your personal information and data.

Radiocasters is a collaborative community, as well as a company. This means that many portions of our Websites, including information you voluntarily provide, will be public-facing for the open sharing of content, ideas, and information that makes our collaborative community so great. While we are committed to open sharing, we strive to respect the privacy of individual community members and will minimize the information we collect and share. If you do not want to share your information, including personally identifiable information, with other community members and the public, please be thoughtful as to how you interact with our Websites and what information you provide through the Websites (for example, through creating a public profile, comments, and podcast episodes).

What Information Radiocasters Collects and Why

Information from Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Radiocasters collects basic non-personally-identifying information from Website visitors of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. We collect this information to better understand how visitors use the Website, to improve our Websites and experience for visitors, and to monitor security of the Websites. From time to time, Radiocasters may publicly release non-personally-identifying information collected from Website visitors in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Website.

Radiocasters also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses from visitors. Radiocasters does not use such information to identify or track individual visitors, however. We collect this information to understand how visitors use the Websites, to improve performance and content, and to monitor security of the Websites.

Radiocasters may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to our Websites. For instance, Radiocasters may reveal how many downloads a particular audio file got using aggregated statistics that contain anonymous user information only.

Personally-Identifying Information

Users of the Websites may choose to interact with Radiocasters in ways that provide us with their personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Radiocasters gathers depends on the nature of your interaction with us, as well as the amount of information you choose to share. For example, we ask visitors who use our comment section to provide a username and email address to identify them on the Website. We will also collect the information you provide with us in connection with creating an account on the Website. Profile information is shared publicly, as well as activity under your profile and the date your profile was created. If you report a security vulnerability to Radiocasters and request public acknowledgement, then we may publicly disclose the personal information you provided to us in connection with the report, including your name to fulfill your request for acknowledgement. In each case, Radiocasters collects such personally-identifiable information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the user’s interaction with or request of Radiocasters. We will not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described in this Privacy Policy.

Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent you from engaging in certain Website-related activities or being able to access and use certain features and services.

Information Radiocasters Does Not Collect

Radiocasters does not intentionally collect sensitive personal information, such as social security numbers, genetic data, health information, or religious information. Although Radiocasters does not request or intentionally collect any sensitive personal information, we realize that users might store this kind of information in a Radiocasters podcast or profile. If you store any sensitive personal information on Radiocasters's servers, you are consenting to our storage of that information on our servers, which are located in the Netherlands.

If you're a child under the age of 13, you may not have an account on the Website. Radiocasters does not knowingly collect information from or direct any of our Website or content specifically to children under 13. If we learn or have reason to suspect that a user is under the age of 13, we will close the child’s account.

Bases for Processing Your Information

Performance of a contract. The use of your information may be necessary to perform the contract that you have with us. For example, if you use our Websites to purchase Radiocasters product subscriptions or services, contribute to a podcast, create a profile, post and comment through our Websites, or request information through our Websites, we will use your information to carry out our obligation to complete and administer that contract or request.

Legitimate interests. We use your information for our legitimate interests, such as to provide you with the best content through our Websites and communications with users and the public, to improve and promote our products and services, and for administrative, security, fraud prevention and legal purposes.

Consent. We may rely on your consent to use your personal information for certain direct marketing purposes, such as sending you newsletter updates about Radiocasters products. You may withdraw your consent at any time through the unsubscribe feature provided with each marketing email or by contacting us at the addresses given at the end of this Privacy Policy.

How Radiocasters Uses and Protects Personally-Identifying Information

Sharing Your Information

Radiocasters only discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Radiocasters's behalf or to provide services available on the Website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.

Radiocasters will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, Radiocasters discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Radiocasters believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Radiocasters, third parties, or the public at large.

Radiocasters takes measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

International Transfer of Information

The Website is hosted in the Netherlands and information we collect will be stored and processed on our servers in the Netherlands. Our employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that process information for us as described above may be located in the Netherlands or in other countries outside of your home country; by using the Website, you consent to the international transfer of your information by Radiocasters.

Radiocasters Communications with You

If you are a registered user of the Websites and have supplied your email address, Radiocasters may occasionally send you an email to tell you about security, system information, new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with Radiocasters and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. We will only send mass marketing emails with your affirmative consent. There's an unsubscribe link located at the bottom of each of the marketing emails we send you so you can stop receiving such emails at any time.

If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish your request in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. We will not publish your personally-identifiable information in connection with your request.

Cookies, Tracking Technologies and Do Not Track

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer, and that the visitor's browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Radiocasters uses cookies to help Radiocasters identify and track visitors, their usage of the Websites, and their Website access preferences. Radiocasters visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers may set their browsers to refuse cookies before using the Websites. Disabling browser cookies may cause certain features of Radiocasters's websites to not function properly.

Certain pages on the Website may set other third party cookies. For example, we may embed content, such as videos, from another site that sets a cookie. These sites set their own cookies and we do not have access or control over these cookies. The use of cookies by third parties is not covered by our Privacy Policy.

For more information on what cookies are used, visit our Cookies Policy.

Tracking Technologies

We use third party tracking services, but we don’t use these services to track you individually or collect your personally identifiable-information. We use these services to collect information about how the Website performs and how users navigate through and use the Website so we can monitor and improve our content and Website performance.

Third party tracking services gather certain simple, non-personally identifying information over time, such as your IP address, browser type, internet service provider, referring and exit pages, timestamp, and similar data about your use of the Website. We do not link this information to any of your personal information such as your user name.

Do Not Track

"Do Not Track" is a privacy preference you can set in your browser if you do not want online services to collect and share certain kinds of information about your online activity from third party tracking services. Radiocasters does not track your online browsing activity on other online services over time and we do not permit third-party services to track your activity on our site beyond our basic tracking, which you may opt out of. Because we do not share this kind of data with third party services or permit this kind of third party data collection for any of our users, and we do not track our users on third-party websites ourselves, we do not need to respond differently to an individual browser's Do Not Track setting.

Global Privacy Practices
