WHAT PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT AND WHY WE COLLECT IT

Platforms

While using our Platforms, you may review content, register, or listen to our live streams, sign up to receive announcements, possibly enter contests, or link to our Facebook, twitter or Instagram pages by liking or following us, along with a variety of other functions. Depending on how you use our Platforms, we may collect, name, email, and other information you may voluntarily provide to us such as birth data. We also collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit our website, such as the type of browser you use (Chrome, Safari etc.), and the type of operating system such as either Mac or Windows.

Collection of information by Third Party Sites

Some of our Platforms contain links to other sites whose information practice may well be different from ours. Please be encouraged to contact the sites to inquire of their privacy policies because we have not any control over information submitted or collected by these third parties.

Google Analytics

When visiting https://talkcosmos.com we use a third-party service Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behavior patterns. This is to learn the number of visitors to the parts of the site so to understand how the material relates to the population. This information gets processed so it will not identify anyone. We do not make or allow Google to make attempts to find out the identities of the individuals visiting our website.

General Mailing Lists

As part of our registration process for the weekly e-announcements, your first name, last name and email are collected.  Our landing page gives the option for the birthdate, but this is not required. We use this information for a few reasons: to advise you about the upcoming scheduled panel event, to contact you if we might need to obtain or provide additional information, and to check if our records continue to be right and to check occasionally that you’re happy and content. We will never rent or trade email lists with any other business or organization.

We use a third -party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using the industry standard technologies provided through MailChimp to help monitor and improve the future announcements to better serve you. You can unsubscribe to the general mailings at your choice at any time day or night, just by clicking unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of the MailChimp emails. Or just email to request support through info@talkcosmos.com.

Third Parties

If you are a guest on the podcast and YouTube your photo, name, bio, website, and social media are made public on our public guest profile on our website.  Your contact information is not made available to the public; however, it is made available to the sound board engineer operating the station’s program during the hour of the event, as well as to the other panel guests participating during the same program event.
