PJ Library Radio Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting www.pjlibraryradio.com (the “Site”). The Harold Grinspoon Foundation (sometimes referred to as “we” or “us”) takes your privacy seriously. This Privacy Policy lets you know what information is collected, and how it is used, when you visit the Site, when you use our PJ Library Radio app (“App”), and/or when you use our embeddable PJ Library Radio iframe player (the “Player”) (the Site, App and Player are sometimes collectively referred to herein as the “PJ Library Radio Platforms”).

Personally-Identifiable Information
The only personally-identifiable information we collect is what you give us. When you: (1) communicate with us by email or the “Contacts” section of the Site or App; (2) request a song to be played on the PJ Library Radio broadcast; (3) submit your music to be considered for inclusion on the PJ Library Radio broadcast; and/or (4) submit a request to embed the Player on your website, you may elect to give us personally-identifiable information such as your name, email address, mailing address, telephone number, or other information which could be used to locate or contact you. If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy or do not want us to obtain any personally-identifiable information, please do not provide it to us.

Non-Personally-Identifiable Information
We may collect certain non-personally-identifiable information such as your IP address, the type of browser you are using, the type of device you are using, the referring website, the operating system you are using, your Internet service provider, geotargeting information (e.g., your city), the search terms you use on our Site, the specific web pages you visit, and the duration of your visits. We collect this information so that we can analyze trends, administer and improve the PJ Library Radio Platforms, track users’ movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. We may also use aggregated anonymous information to provide information about our PJ Library Radio Platforms to potential business partners and other unaffiliated entities for marketing, advertising and/or other uses. Again, this information is not personally-identifiable.

How We Use Your Personally-Identifiable Information
Any of the personally-identifiable information we collect from you may be used to help us to more effectively process and respond to your requests, submissions and queries, especially relating to the PJ Library Radio broadcast, music played on the PJ Library Radio broadcast, and/or the PJ Library Radio Platforms.

Our servers, or the servers of companies that are used to operate the PJ Library Radio Platforms, may place a “cookie” and similar small files on your computer in order to allow you to use the PJ Library Radio Platforms and to personalize your experience.

Other content providers that may appear on the PJ Library Radio Platforms, and third-party vendors that provide services for our PJ Library Radio Platforms (e.g., analytics), may also use cookies and similar files that are not sent by us. We are not responsible for any such cookies, and the other content providers’ use of cookies is governed by their own privacy policies. The following is a list of some third-party features used on our PJ Library Radio Platforms, along with links to their privacy policies:

    We may also use web beacons (e.g., pixel tags) to measure traffic patterns, understand user needs and trends, and generate statistics.

    Disclosure of Information to Third Parties
    We do not sell your personally identifiable information to outside parties. However, we may use unaffiliated third parties to help us operate and maintain the PJ Library Radio Platforms and the PJ Library Radio broadcast, conduct our business and/or otherwise service you, and we may share your personally-identifiable information with those third parties for those purposes. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce the policies of the PJ Library Radio Platforms, or protect ours or others’ rights, property, or safety.

    Third Party Links
    Occasionally, we may include links to third party websites and services on our PJ Library Radio Platforms. In some cases, we may also include certain embedded tools provided and controlled by third parties, or that permit you to submit information to third parties. The PJ Library Radio Platforms may also include widgets from third party services (e.g., a button that allows you to “like” content on Facebook). These third-party websites, services and tools have separate and independent privacy policies, and you should review such privacy policies carefully.
