This Policy explains when and why we collect personal information about people who visit our website or web application, how we use it, the conditions under which we may disclose it to others and how we keep it secure.
We may change this policy from time to time so please check this page occasionally to ensure that you’re happy with any changes. By using our website or web application, you’re agreeing to be bound by this policy. Where possible we will notify you of any changes of policy within Podcast.co Studio.
Any questions regarding this policy and our privacy practices should be sent by email to [email protected].
Other Data - By using the Podcast.co services we may store information about what pages have been visited and when. This is to help us improve the usability of our services.
Retention - We collect and retain Personal Data submitted to Podcast.co in an identifiable format for the amount of time necessary to meet your request or fulfil our legal or regulatory obligations, unless it is in our legitimate business interests and not prohibited by law to maintain the Personal Data for longer periods.
We may use information for our legitimate interests, namely:
Under no circumstances will we directly disclose or sell your personal information to any third party without your prior permission. We are strongly against any form of internet 'spam' and keep all collected information strictly confidential in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).
We will not sell or provide your information to third parties for marketing purposes.
We may pass your information to our third party service providers, or other associated organisations for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf (for example processing payments and providing sales/technical support). However, when we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own direct marketing purposes.
Please be reassured that we will not release your information to third parties beyond the Podcast.co network for them to use for their own direct marketing purposes, unless you have requested us to do so, or we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.
When you are using our secure online payment system, your payment is processed by a third party processor, who specialises in the secure online capture and processing of credit/debit card and PayPal transactions. If you have any questions regarding secure transactions, please contact us.
Podcast.co's infrastructure is managed by multiple service providers (For example, Amazon Web Services). However, they do not have access to any personal information and are prohibited to selling or passing on any stored data.
From July 2021, in order to track the performance of our advertising efforts on Facebook, we may send data using their Conversions API when a new user signs up to use Podcast.co's services or an existing collaborator signs up to a trial. This data is limited to your sign up email address, web browser user agent and anonymised IP address. Any information sent to Facebook for processing is only used for advertising performance tracking by us. Facebook does not collect or pass on this data. You can opt out of personalised Ad targeting at any time via your personal profile settings within Facebook. This change does not affect existing users.
