Your privacy is very important to us. Here are a few fundamental principles that we follow:
We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law.
We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.
The Yes Music Podcast is owned and run by Kevin Mulryne and it is our policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.
Like most website operators, Yes Music Podcast may collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Yes Music Podcast visitors use our website. We will never release any of this information to anyone.
We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for users leaving comments on our blog. We only disclose commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that we use and disclose personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrator (Kevin Mulryne) of the blog. We don’t do anything with this information other than possibly using it to see where commenters are from, for our interest.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to the Yes Music Podcast website choose to interact in ways that require the gathering of personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that is gathered depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a name and email address. We also collect the email addresses of those who wish to receive new blog posts (including the latest podcast episode) updates via email – otherwise it wouldn’t work. In each case, we collect such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with the Yes Music Podcast. We do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
We may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors. For instance, we may use the Akismet service to help identify spam. However, we do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
We disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to services we use which really need it for example our web hosting company whose servers store this information. Some of these services may be located outside of your home country; by using the Yes Music Podcast website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. We will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than as described above, we disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect our property or rights, third parties or the public at large. We take all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If we go away
If we stop producing the Yes Music Podcast, we will delete user information.
Comments and other content submitted to Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
