6. Use of Cookies

When you view one of our Web sites or advertisements, we may store some information on your computer. This information will be in the form of a "Cookie" or similar file and will be used to determine ways to improve our Web sites, advertisements, products or services. We do link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information you submit while on our site. We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. For example, Cookies allow us to tailor a Web site to better match your interests and preferences. With most Internet Browsers, you can erase Cookies from your computer hard drive, block all Cookies, or receive a warning before a Cookie is stored. Please refer to your Browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions. If you reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some areas of our site, will be limited.

The use of cookies by our partners, affiliates, tracking utility company, service providers is not covered by our privacy statement. We do not have access or control over these cookies. Our partners, affiliates, tracking utility company, service providers use session ID cookies, for example, to allow our partners to tailor Advertising to better match your interests and preferences.

7. Web Beacons

We employ and our third party advertising partner employ a software technology called Web Beacons, that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Web Beacons are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ personally identifiable information.

8. Log Files

As is true of most Web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. 

9. Declining E-mail Offers

As outlined in Section 3 of this Statement, we will only send email promotions or announcements to you if you have previously provided your permission for us to do so. Although many customers tell us they appreciate receiving notice of these carefully designed promotions and announcements, we recognize the importance of providing you with choices. At any time, you may remove your name from our e-mail list by contacting us at our e-mail address privacy@BlogTalkRadio.com. All e-mail offers that you receive from BlogTalkRadio will inform you of how to decline receiving further email offers.

10. Collection of Third Party Information

If you choose to use our referral service to promote your shows via email, we will ask you for your intended recipients name and email address. We will automatically send a one-time email inviting them to listen to your broadcast. BlogTalkRadio stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email

If you choose to request that your show be featured on our site we will ask for the name, phone number, and email address of your guests. BlogTalkRadio stores the information for you to be able to dial your guest and bring them onto a show.

If you wish to no longer have your personal information used by our site, you may request to have it deleted by contacting us at privacy@blogtalkradio.com.

11. Third Party Service Providers

We use other third parties such as a credit card processing company to bill you for goods and services and an email service provider to send out emails on our behalf. We use live chat software to allow you to chat with hosts during their broadcasts. When you sign up for our services, we will share your credit card information with a credit card processing company in order to charge the appropriate fees. We will share your personal information only as necessary for the third party to provide that service.

12. Surveys and Contests

From time-to-time we may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys on our site. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information such as email address, age and gender, and demographic information (such as zip code). 

We use this information to notify contest winners and award prizes,

We may use a third party service provider to conduct these surveys or contests; that company will be prohibited from using our users’ personally identifiable information for any other purpose. We will not share the personally identifiable information you provide through a contest or survey with other third parties unless we give you prior notice and choice.

13. Legal Disclaimer

We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site. We will also share your personal information with any other third party with your prior consent to do so.

If BlogTalkRadio is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Web site of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.
