Information We Collect Automatically

Whenever you visit or interact with Podcast Planet, the website and any third-party advertisers and/or service providers may use a variety of technologies to automatically collect information about how you accessed and used Podcast Planet. This Usage Information may include, in part, browser type, operating system, the page served, the time, and the preceding page views. This data informs us about how visitors use Podcast Planet, such as how many visit a specific page, how long they stay on that page, and which hyperlinks they click on. This information helps us keep our website fresh and interesting. Usage Information is generally non-identifying, but if Podcast Planet associates it with you as a specific and identifiable person, Podcast Planet treats it as Personal Information.

Podcast Planet also automatically collects your IP address or other unique Device Identifier for the computer, mobile device, or other device you use to access Podcast Planet. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your device when you access a website or its servers. The technologies used on Podcast Planet to collect Usage Information, including Device Identifiers, include:

  • Cookies. Podcast Planet and our third-party advertising and service providers may place cookies or similar files on your device for security purposes, to facilitate site navigation, and to personalize your experience while visiting Podcast Planet. Cookies allow us to collect technical and navigational information, such as browser type, time spent on Podcast Planet, and pages visited. Cookies allow us to select which of our advertisements or offers are most likely to appeal to you and display them while you are on Podcast Planet. If you would prefer not to accept cookies, change your browser settings to notify you when you receive a cookie, which lets you choose whether to accept it; or set your browser to automatically refuse cookies.
  • Pixel tags. A pixel tag is a transparent graphic image, sometimes called a web beacon or tracking beacon, placed on a web page or in an email, which indicates that a page or email has been viewed. In addition, a pixel tag may tell your browser to get content from another server. The pixel tags on Podcast Planet are set only by companies we work with and supervise. In order to ensure the safekeeping of your information, network advertising companies and publishers are not permitted to directly collect information on Podcast Planet.

You may also choose to participate in a third party application or feature, such as our Twitter and Facebook profiles, through which you allow us to collect (or the third party to share) information about you, including Personal Information.

We may also supplement the information we collect about you through Podcast Planet with outside records from third parties in order to enhance our ability to serve you, to tailor our content to you, and to offer you opportunities to purchase products or services that we believe may be of interest to you. In those cases, we will apply this Privacy Policy to any Personal Information received, unless we have disclosed otherwise.

In addition, you should be aware that it is not always possible to completely remove or delete all of your information from our databases without some residual data because of backups and other reasons.

6. Advertising/Behavioral Targeting; How To Opt-Out.

Podcast Planet licenses technology to serve advertisements on its site and within its content as that content is served across the Internet. In addition, Podcast Planet may use third party network advertisers to serve advertisements and third party analytics vendors to evaluate and provide us with information about the use of Podcast Planet and viewing of our content. We do not share Personal Information with these third parties, but ad network providers, the advertisers, the sponsors, and/or analytics service providers may set and access their own cookies, pixel tags, and similar technologies on your device, and they may otherwise collect or have access to information about you, including Usage Information. We and our network advertisers may target advertisements for products and services in which you might be interested based on your visits to both Podcast Planet and other websites. We may use a variety of companies to serve advertisements.

If you prefer to not receive targeted advertising, you can opt out of some network advertising programs that use your information. To do so please visit the NAI Opt-Out Page: http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.

Even if you choose to opt out and remove your information, you will still see advertisements while you’re browsing online. However the advertisements you see may be less relevant to you and your interests. Additionally, many network advertising programs allow you to view and manage the interest categories they have compiled from your online browsing activities. These interest categories help determine the types of targeted advertisements you may receive. The NAI Opt-Out Page provides a tool that identifies its member companies that have cookies on your browser and provides links to those companies.

7. Children

Podcast Planet and its content are not directed to children under 13. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under 13 years of age. If we determine upon collection that a user is under this age, we will not use or maintain his/her Personal Information without the parent/guardian’s consent. If we become aware that we have unknowingly collected personally identifiable information from a child under the age of 13, we will make reasonable efforts to delete such information from our records.

8. Security Of Your Information

We use certain reasonable security measures to help protect your Personal Information. However, no electronic data transmission or storage of information can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Please note that we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you use Podcast Planet and provide us with your information at your own risk.

9. Other Sites

Podcast Planet may contain links to other sites that we do not own or operate. This includes links from advertisers, sponsors and partners that may use our logo(s) as part of a co-branding agreement. We do not control, recommend or endorse, and are not responsible for these sites or their content, products, services or privacy policies or practices. These other websites may send their own cookies to your device, they may independently collect data or solicit Personal Information, and may or may not have their own published privacy policies. You should also independently assess the authenticity of any site which appears or claims that it is or related to Podcast Planet (including those linked to through an email or social networking page).

10. Consent To Processing And Transfer Of Information

Podcast Planet is operated in the United States. Given that we are an international business, our use of your information necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international basis. If you are located in the European Union, Canada, or elsewhere outside of the United States, please be aware that by using Podcast Planet, or providing us with any information, you consent to the collection, processing, maintenance, and transfer of such information in and to the United States and other applicable territories in which the privacy laws may not be as comprehensive as or equivalent to those in the country where you reside and/or are a citizen.
