Fireside collects anonymous information from website visitors including the browser type, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. This helps us better understand how visitors use our website.
When you create an account, you will be asked to enter your first and last name, your email address, and a password. This information will be used for billing, logging in, and password resets.
We collect information you enter as you create podcasts and their related and supportive content, such as episodes, hosts, guests, etc. We also need to store the supportive mp3 files and images you upload until you delete them or cancel your account.
All credit card information is handled securely by our credit card processor, Stripe. Fireside does not collect, store, or process your credit card information.
Fireside collects aggregate, anonymous statistics in order to provide listener data for our customers. We log information about each download of an episode including data like IP addresses, user-agents, and geograpic location. We then display this podcast-specific, anonymous information to our customers in the form of analytics.
Fireside also collects statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. Fireside may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, we do not disclose your personally-identifying information.
We use the information we collect to operate and improve our website, analytics, and customer support.
We do not share your personal information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to accomplish Fireside’s functionality.
If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.
We may share anonymous, aggregate statistics with outside parties, such as:
We may disclose your information in response to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal requirements; to exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims; to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud or abuse, violations of our policies; or to protect our rights and property.
We may occasionally send registered users of Fireside an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Fireside. We will also use your email address to invite you to the Fireside Slack community. You can ignore this invitation, and can leave the Slack community at any time.
In the future, we may sell to, buy, merge with, or partner with other businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets.
