Thank you for using audacityDaily!
My mission is to help you find and free the real you. To do that, I show you content and products I think you?ll be interested in. I collect very minimal information and only where there’s a proper legal basis for doing so.
I wrote this policy to help you understand what information I collect, how I use it and what choices you have about it. Because audacityDaily is an internet company, some of the concepts below are a little technical, but I?ve tried my best to explain things in a simple and clear way. I?welcome your questions and comments on this policy.
I collect information in a few different ways:
When you give it to me or give me permission to obtain it
When you sign up for the audacityDaily Newsletter or participate in blog conversations you give me certain information voluntarily. This includes your name and email address and optionally your phone number, comments, and any other information you give me. You can also choose to share with me location data or photos. If you buy something on audacityDaily that I produce, I collect payment information, contact information (address and phone number) and details of what you bought. If you buy something on audacityDaily via an affiliate link, those companies will obtain your information which depends on their privacy policies, so please check what those are.
When you use audacityDaily
Whenever you use any website, mobile application or other internet service, certain information gets created and logged automatically. The same is true when you use audacityDaily. Here are some of the types of information I collect:
Log data. I utilize the industry standard Google Analytics (GA) to collect information that helps me fine tune our site. When you use audacityDaily, GA records anonymous information (?log data?), including information that your browser automatically sends whenever you visit a website, or that your mobile app automatically sends when you?re using it, like activity on websites you visit, browser type and settings, the date and time of your request, how you used audacityDaily, cookie data and device data.
In addition to log data, I collect information about the device you?re using audacityDaily on, including type of device, operating system, settings, unique device identifiers and crash data that helps me understand when something breaks. Whether I collect some or all of this information often depends on what type of device you?re using and its settings. For example, different types of information are available depending on whether you?re using a Mac or a PC, or an iPhone or Android phone. To learn more about what information your device makes available to me, please also check the policies of your device manufacturer or software provider.
Our partners and advertisers share information with me
I also get information about you and your activity outside audacityDaily from our affiliates, advertisers, partners and other third parties I work with, or other publicly available sources. For example, affiliate partners or third parties share information with me to measure or improve the performance of link text for their products on audacityDaily. This includes information about your visits to an affiliate?s site or purchases you made from them, or information about your interests from a third party service, which I might use to help further fine tune my content.
What I do with the info I collect
I use the information I collect to provide our service to you. I commit to showing you content that?s relevant, interesting and personal to you. In order to do that, it?s necessary for me to use your information to:
Identify you when you use audacityDaily, and process your transactions
Recommend topics or categories you might like based on your activity on audacityDaily. For example, if I see you?re into science, I may suggest science-related content or people that I think you might like or show you science-related links.
Respond to your questions or comments
I have a legitimate interest in using your information in these ways. It is also fundamental to the nature of the service I provide. In short, it?s necessary for me to do these things in order to make the service relevant, interesting and personal to you like I promised, and it?s in both of our interests for me to do that.
Maintain our relationship with you, and protect users
Suggest other people who have similar interests.?For example, if you follow mindbody content, I may suggest related health sites that you might like.
Conduct analytics on who is using audacityDaily and what they are doing. For example, by logging how often people use two versions of our main categories on audacityDaily, I can understand which version is better.
Offer new features
Send you updates (such as when certain activity, like saves or comments, happen on audacityDaily) and news by email or push notification, depending on your settings. For example, I may send weekly updates on the latest audacityDaily Newsletter that include articles you may like. You can decide to stop getting these notifications by updating your settings.
Work with law enforcement and keep audacityDaily safe.?I may get requests for account information from law enforcement authorities like the police or courts.
I seek to deliver content and product suggestions that are relevant, interesting and personal to you in order to generate revenue (running a website is expensive!) To further these interests I use the information I collect to:
Decide which content and products to show you.?Each time I send you marketing materials, I give you the option to unsubscribe.
Tell our affiliate partners how their ads are doing using the audacityDaily tag.?The audacityDaily tag (a piece of code) delivers insights to me and our affiliate partners about actions that a person takes on their website after clicking an affiliate link on audacityDaily.
Transferring your information:
audacityDaily is a worldwide service.?By using audacityDaily, you authorize me to transfer and store your information outside your home country, including in the United States, for the purposes described in this policy. The privacy protections and the rights of authorities to access your information in these countries may not be the same as in your home country.
Choices you have about your info:
Our goal is to give you simple and meaningful choices regarding your information. If you have an audacityDaily account, you may opt out at any time or edit information in your profile at any time.
You also have choices available to you through the device or software you use to access audacityDaily. For example: The browser you use lets you control cookies or other types of local data storage.
Your mobile device lets you choose how and whether your location, photos, advertising identifiers and other data is shared with me.
To learn more about these choices, please see the information provided by your device or software provider.
How and when I share information:
I share your information with:
Affiliates and third party companies that I or they use to audit or improve the delivery and performance of affiliate links or content on websites and apps (for example, through Google Analytics). This includes what affiliate links you’re shown on audacityDaily and whether or how you engaged with those links, or other information about your activity on audacityDaily.
Law enforcement agencies or government agencies. I only share information if I believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety, rights, or property of the public, any person, or audacityDaily; or to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
My wholly owned subsidiaries and affiliates. If I were to engage in a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganisation, or similar transaction or proceeding that involves the transfer of the information described in this Policy, I would share your information with a party involved in such a process (for example, a potential purchaser).
How long I keep your information:
I keep your information only so long as I need it to provide audacityDaily to you and fulfill the purposes described in this policy. This is also the case for anyone that I share your information with and who carries out services on my behalf. When I no longer need to use your information and there is no need for me to keep it to comply with our legal or regulatory obligations, I?ll either remove it from our systems or depersonalize it so that I can’t identify you.
