In addition, the payment processors generally provide us with some limited information related to you, such as a unique token that enables you to make additional purchases using the information they’ve stored, and your card’s type, expiration date, and certain digits of your card number.

Cookies and similar technology

As is standard practice on many websites, our website uses “cookies” and other technologies to help us understand which parts of our website are the most popular, where our visitors are going, and how much time they spend there. We also use cookies and other technologies to make sure that our online advertising is bringing customers to our services. We use cookies and other technologies to study traffic patterns on the Services and to analyze the effectiveness of our customer communications. And we use cookies to customize your experience and provide greater convenience each time you interact with us.

The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on’s settings or visiting the Website of its manufacturer. However, because cookies may allow you to take advantage of some of our website’s essential features, we recommend that you leave them turned on.

As is true of most websites and apps, 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. We will not use the information collected to market directly to that person.

In some of our email messages we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on our website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through our web server before arriving at the destination web page. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked simply avoid clicking text or graphic links in the email.

Choice and control

It is not necessary for you to provide us with any personal data in order to visit the Website, although certain information will be collected automatically by virtue of your visit (as described above). However, if you do decide to register a Spark Memories Radio account, you can control your information in the following ways.

Unsubscribing from newsletter or marketing message emails: Click on the “unsubscribe” link provided in any marketing or newsletter email. Alternately, you can email us at support@sparkmemoriesradio.com and request to have your email removed.

Deleting your Spark Memories Radio account: To delete your account completely, send an email to support@sparkmemoriesradio.com and request to have your account deleted. If you ask us to delete your account, we will do so within a reasonable period of time, but we may need to retain some of your personal data in order to satisfy our legal obligations, or where we have a legitimate reason for doing so.

Note that deleting the App from your device(s) or  cancelling a paid subscription (e.g. by turning off auto renew in your iTunes or Google Play account settings), does not delete your Spark Memories Radio account information. Email us as instructed above to completely delete your account.

Children

We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 for marketing purposes. If a child under 13 submits personal information to Spark and we learn that that personal information is the information of a child under 13, we will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible. If you have reason to believe that we may have collected any such personal data, please notify us immediately at support@sparkmemoriesradio.com.

Changes and updates to this Privacy Policy

We may occasionally update this Privacy Policy, and when we do so, we will also revise the Effective Date set out below. Any changes to our Privacy Policy will always be available here so that Spark Memories Radio users are always aware of what information we gather, and how we might use and share that information.
