1. Introduction

 

Gayradio.com is committed to protecting the privacy of its users. This statement discloses gayradio.com’s privacy practices and is incorporated into, and subject to the terms of, gayradio.com’s Terms of Use. The purpose of this statement is to inform you as to:

 

•    What kinds of information gayradio.com collects from users of the gayradio.com web site and how such information is collected;

•    How the information is used by gayradio.com;

•    Whether gayradio.com discloses any user information to third parties;

Accordingly, we recommend that you consult this page frequently so that you are aware of our latest policy.

 

 

2. How We Collect Information

 

In almost all cases, we do not obtain any personally identifiable information about you unless you choose to reveal it. Examples of when you voluntarily submit such information include when you respond to emails from us, post messages or upload content using our service. Thus, you are not required to disclose any personally identifiable information to us, unless you sign up to become a gayradio.com subscriber/listener. For example, you must provide your name and contact information to acquire listener status and full site access. When you sign up to use gayradio.com, we will ask you to create a user or listener ID. This ID will identify you when you post messages to our web site, or when you engage in certain other activities on the site, such as hosting gayradio.com programs. We also automatically collect and store statistics and other information about you and your online activities both on an aggregated, non-personally identifiable basis, and in a manner that may allow us to associate such information with other personally identifiable information about you.

 

 

3. How We Use and Disclose Your Information

 

We use your information on an aggregated basis to do such things as operate our site, enhance and improve our service and marketing campaigns. We also use this data, both aggregated and personally identifiable, to enhance your onsite experience by displaying promotions, advertisements and content that we believe will be of interest to you.

 

We do not sell to, or share your personally identifiable information with third parties. So, for example, we do not sell your email addresses to spammers or sell your name and personal demographic information to mass marketers.

 

In some cases we use your personally identifiable information to provide information to you, such as to send announcements and email for which you have opted-in. We will provide you with directions in all emails on how to be taken off our mailing list.

 

Note that some online activities in which you might choose to participate may necessarily lead to disclosure of your personally identifiable information to third parties, such as when you include your name and email address, although not recommended, in messages posted to public areas on our site (such as blog, forum or listener profile areas). In these cases, your choice to disclose personally identifiable information is voluntary. As a necessary incident of our service, your listener ID is available for all visitors to see in certain circumstances.

 

 

4. Controlling or Changing Your Information

 

You can access and update your contact information and preferences by going to your People Profile (when this service becomes available) and following the instructions given. However, to the extent that such information is also stored in other databases, we cannot always ensure that such corrections or deletions will immediately reach the other databases. In the interim, if you have any questions, please email us at customercare@gayradio.com.

 

 

5. Cookies and Other Tracking Methods

 

Cookies are small pieces of information stored on your hard drive, not on our site. We use cookies on our site for a number of reasons. First, cookies can help us provide information that is targeted to your interests. Second, cookies allow us to better understand how users use our site, which in turn helps us focus our resources on features that are most popular with our users. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, but some parts of our site may not work properly in that case.

 

In addition to using cookies, in some circumstances we may track or collect information about your activities on our site by the numeric address assigned to the computer you are using (your IP address) or by the URLs that you come from or leave to. This information is collected but not shared with any third parties on any personally identifiable basis.

 

 

6. Other Sites

 

The gayradio.com web site may contain links and references to other web sites and organizations, including web sites owned or operated by gayradio.com’s advertisers. Please note that different rules may apply to the collection, use or disclosure of your information by third party service providers or vendors or any other sites you encounter on the Internet (even if these sites are branded with our branding or framed by our site). We encourage you to investigate and ask questions before disclosing information to third parties.

 

 

7. Limits on Our Abilities

 

Although your privacy is very important to us, due to the existing legal and technical environment, we cannot fully ensure that your private communications and other personally identifiable information will not be disclosed to third parties. For example, we may be forced to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Additionally, we can (and you authorize us to) disclose any information about you to private entities, law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to investigate or resolve possible problems or inquiries.

 

 

8. Security

 

We use industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal identifiable information, such as firewalls and Secure Socket Layers where appropriate. However, “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet.
