When you browse Archivist.fm you do so anonymously. 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. However, there are a couple of ways in which our website may collect information about you.
Information you provide us directly:
By using our “Message Us” form on our website, you may voluntarily provide your email for purposes such as correspondence or participating in contests.
Like many other websites, Archivist.fm makes use of log files. These files merely logs visitors to the site - usually a standard procedure for hosting companies and a part of hosting services's analytics. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, and referring/exit pages. This information is used to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses, and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.
We may use third-party analytics tools and services, to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the website and streaming service. These tools use this analytics information in aggregate form such that it cannot reasonably be manipulated to identify any particular individual user.
When you visit our website, 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 Archivist.fm enhance your navigation through the site. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.
The Archivist.fm 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.
