Podchaser collects information about you and other users in a variety of ways. These include, but are not limited to, through your voluntary submissions and participation in and access to the Services, as well as through cookies and other tracking technology. The information we collect can and often is used in a variety of ways, including to improve our Services, to notify you about updates to our Services, or promotions that you may be interested in, and to fulfill and provide the Services you have requested.
The information we collect currently includes, but is not limited to, the following:
When and how we share your personal information
We do not disclose Personal Information to third parties, except when one or more of the following conditions is true:
Prior to sharing of your Personal Information with others, we typically enter into agreements with such outside parties. If Podchaser becomes aware that any of these outside parties is improperly using or disclosing Personal Information, we will notify that outside party and request that it take reasonable steps to stop such use or disclosure.
Podchaser may use tools or third party analytical software to automatically collect and use certain Non-Personal Data that does not directly enable Podchaser to identify you. The types of Non-Personal Data Podchaser may collect and use include, but are not limited to: (i) device properties, including, but not limited to unique device identifier or other device identifier; (ii) device software platform and firmware; (iii) mobile phone carrier; (iv) geographical data such as zip code, area code and location; and (v) other Non-Personal Data to help us enhance our Services.
From time-to-time we may collect general, non-personal, statistical information about use of the Services. This statistical information may include how many visitors visit a specific page on our Website or in our mobile apps, how long a user stays on that page, and which hyperlinks or buttons, if any, they click on. This information represents a generic overview of our users, and allows us and other third parties to modify information, promotions, offers and/or products and services based on user traffic and behavior. We collect this information through the use of technologies such as ‘cookies’ (see below), and use this information to, among other things, enhance our Services. We may also group this information into aggregate visitor data in order to describe the use of the Services to existing or potential business partners or other third parties, and to optimize third-party offers of products and/or services. We also may share aggregated demographic and preference data with third parties to enable the provision of targeted information, promotions, offers and/or products and services.
Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
Tracking technologies may record information such as Internet domain and host names; Internet protocol (IP) addresses; browser software and operating system types; clickstream patterns; and dates and times that our Services are accessed. Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address. We may link the information we record using tracking technologies to Personal Information we collect from you for our own marketing and advertising purposes. Additionally, we reserve the right to use IP addresses and other tracking technologies to identify a visitor when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our Terms of Service, to protect our Services, our customers or others, or when we reasonably believe that the law requires it.
You recognize and agree that the analytics companies and marketing partners utilized by Podchaser may combine the information collected with other information they have independently collected from other services or products relating to your activities. These companies collect and use information under their own privacy policies.
The Personal Information you provide and we collect is stored within databases that we control directly or through our service providers. We use those security measures we deem appropriate and consistent with industry standards, such as firewalls, to protect your Personal Information. However, since no security system is impenetrable, we cannot guarantee the security of our databases, nor can we guarantee that information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to or by us over the Internet.
Your information may be transferred to, and maintained on, computers located outside of your state, province, or country, and where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those where you live. If you are located outside the United States and choose to provide information to us, you should remember that we transfer Personal Information to the United States and process and store it there. By submitting your Personal Information, you consent to having your personal data transferred to, processed, and stored in the United States.
We do not knowingly collect any Personal Information about children under 13 years of age. If we become aware that we have unknowingly collected Personal Information from a child under the age of 13, we will make commercially reasonable efforts to delete that information from our database.
