Information We Receive From Third Parties
We may receive information about you from third parties and store it in our databases with other information (including personally identifiable information) that you provide to us. Some examples of these third parties are listed below:
- Service partners and advertisers that make features available through the BYO Channel Services;
- Service partners through whom we allow registered listeners to access BYO Channel Services;

In some cases, those websites or applications may automatically provide us with information about you to facilitate personalization unless you use the controls available on those websites or applications to opt-out of such sharing.
Information That We Receive From Other Listeners
We may collect information about you from people who have stored information about you when they elect to use our social networking or community features, or when they enable connectivity with another website or application where they have stored such information. For instance, your friends may have stored information about you in places such as their friends lists, address books, or photos on our site and other sites with which BYO Channel interacts.
We may also collect your email address when people you know share a channel with you, but we will not add your name to any of our mailing lists as a result of this feature.
Automatic Data Collection
Listening Tracking: BYO Channel incorporates software that is designed to protect the copyrights associated with the tracks you listen to and to ensure that artists and copyright owners receive applicable royalties. This software identifies and counts the songs you have accessed. We also keep track of your listening activity in order to enhance your listening experience and build a better service for you, which may include the number and title of songs you have listened to, the channels you create or listen to, the songs you skip, and how long you listen to a channel.
Service partners: When you access the BYO Channel Services through a service partner, we may add select aspects of your registration information (such as your email address), so that we can recognize to which of our Partners or other sign-in pages to send to you when you log on to the BYO Channel Services.
We also use third party advertising companies to deliver ads to you when you use the BYO Channel Services. In the course of providing this service, our third-party advertising companies may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser which collects non-personally identifiable information about your visits to BYO Channel, such as the number of times you have viewed an ad (but not your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number or other personally identifiable information).
HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT:
We use the information that we collect for the following purposes:
- To customize and personalize the advertising and the content you see.
- To enhance the listener experience in our network of sites. We use tracking information to determine how well each page and channel performs overall based on aggregate listener demographics and traffic patterns to those pages and channels. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
- To fulfill your requests for certain products and services, such as sending out electronic notifications and enabling you to participate features, polls, contests, and message boards.
- To send you information that you agreed to receive about topics that we think will be of interest to you.
