When you visit the Service, we may send one or more cookies — a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters — to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser and lets Pirate 88 Broome help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the site. A cookie may also convey information to us about how you use the Service (e.g., the pages you view, the links you click and other actions you take on the Service), and allow us or our business partners to track your usage of the Service over time. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive after you close your browser. Persistent cookies may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the site.

You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some features of the Service may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled. Full details can be found on our Cookie Policy.

When connecting to our radio stream, your IP address will be sent to our radio service provider in order for us to track listening trends and provide licensing bodies with royalty reports. Once our service provider receives your IP it is immediately anonymised, deleted and becomes untraceable. This data is never sold on or passed to other companies. 

IOS APPS

Apps for iOS do not collect personal data. They communicate with Radio.co's servers to load App preferences and connect to the audio stream. The clause below should be included in your policy:

The {StationName} iOS App does not collect any user data when installed or launched on your device

Android Apps

Apps for Android also do not collect any personal data, however may monitor other Apps on a user's device in order to control the audio. E.g. When a Radio.co Android App is launched on a device, it will continually monitor the 'state' of the Phone App (Idle, Incoming Call, In call, Call ended). This is so the audio can pause if the user receives or makes a phone call. The App does NOT record audio or collect phone numbers. 
The App will also require access to the users local storage. This is in order to store your App's configuration (colours and images) on the device. 

The clause below should be included in your policy:

The {StationName} Android App does not collect any user data during use. In order to provide audio control during Phone App use, the App will monitor the 'state' of the phone App (Idle, in call, call ended) if applicable on your device. At no point will the App be able to listen in or derive phone numbers or data. 
The Android App also requires access to local storage. This is to store it's configuration for faster launch times. 

{StationName] should be replaced with the name of your station, as it appears on your app.
