Inspire To Win, delivers podcast technology services. This policy explains what information we collect when you use Inspire To Win sites, services, mobile applications, products, and content (“Services”). It also has information about how we store, use, transfer, and delete that information.   Information We Collect & How We Use It In order to give you the best possible experience using I2W, we collect information from your interactions with our product. Some of this information you actively tell us (such as your email address, which we use to track your account or communicate with you). Other information, we collect based on actions you take while using I2W, such as what pages you access and your interactions with our product features (like episodes, audio files, and shows). This information includes records of those interactions, your Internet Protocol address, information about your device (such as device or browser type), and referral information. We use this information to:
  • provide, test, improve, promote and personalize I2W Services
  • deliver helpful customer service
  • fight spam and other forms of abuse
  • generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how people use I2W Services
When you create your I2W account, and authenticate with a third-party service (like Twitter, Facebook or Google) we may collect, store, and periodically update information associated with that third-party account, such as your lists of friends or followers. We will never publish through your third-party account without your permission.  

Credit Cards

All credit card information is handled securely by our credit card processor, Stripe. I2W does not collect, store, or process your credit card information. We make use of your credit card information only to process payments related to the I2W Services you have expressly approved. To the extent that we do interact with or access your credit card information, we never share it with any third parties.  

Public Podcasts

Users sign up with I2W mostly for the public dissemination of their podcasts, that is, distributing their audio files and images on publicly available podcast players and websites. However, I2W does permit users to keep podcasts in ‘draft’ mode (unpublished) or as private feeds (not available for general consumption or secured with a token). In cases where such podcasts are intended for public consumption (say, where they are already publicly available on iTunes, for example), then I2W reserves the right to display and refer to these podcasts publicly on I2W’s website, blog, or elsewhere, including for promotional purposes.  

Podcast Statistics

I2W collects data about podcast listener activity in order to provide useful analytics for our customers. We log information about each download or stream of an episode including data like IP addresses, user-agents, and geographic location. This is presented as aggregate, anonymous statistics. Such data does not include any personally identifying information.  

Information Disclosure

I2W won’t transfer information about you to third parties for the purpose of providing or facilitating third-party advertising to you. We won’t sell information about you. We may share your account information with third parties in some circumstances, including: (1) with your consent; (2) to a service provider or partner who meets our data protection standards; (3) with academic or non-profit researchers, with aggregation, anonymization, or pseudonymization; (4) when we have a good faith belief it is required by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena or other legal process; (5) when we have a good faith belief that doing so will help prevent imminent harm to someone. If we are going to share your information in response to legal process, we’ll give you notice so you can challenge it (for example by seeking court intervention), unless we’re prohibited by law or believe doing so may endanger others. We will object to requests for information about users of our services that we believe are improper.  

Data Storage

I2W uses third-party vendors and hosting partners, such as Amazon, for hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology we need to run I2W. We maintain various logs of your interactions with I2W’s services and files which you upload to I2W, usually for purposes of distributing podcast content. By using I2W Services, you authorize I2W to transfer, store, and use your information in the United States and any other country where we operate.  

Third-Party Embeds

Some of the content that you see displayed on I2W is not hosted by I2W. These “embeds” are hosted by a third-party and embedded in I2W. For example: YouTube or Vimeo videos, Imgur or Giphy gifs, SoundCloud audio files, Twitter tweets, GitHub code, or Scribd documents that appear within a I2W post. These files send data to the hosted site just as if you were visiting that site directly (for example, if you load a I2W episode page with a YouTube video embedded in it, YouTube receives data about your activity). I2W does not control what data third parties collect in cases like this, or what they will do with it. So, third-party embeds on I2W are not covered by this privacy policy. They are covered by the privacy policy of the third-party service.  

Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance

We never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.  

Tracking & Cookies

We use browser cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you return to our Services. We use them in various ways, for example to log you in more swiftly, remember your preferences (such as default language), evaluate email effectiveness, and personalize content and other information. I2W doesn’t track you across the Internet. We track only your interactions within the I2W network (which encompasses InspireToWin.com and custom domains hosted by I2W). Some third-party services that we use to provide the I2W Service, such as Google Analytics , may place their own cookies in your browser. This Privacy Policy covers use of cookies by I2W only and not the use of cookies by third parties.  

Data Security

We use encryption (HTTPS/TLS) to protect data transmitted to and from our site. However, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure, so we can’t guarantee security. You use the Service at your own risk, and you’re responsible for taking reasonable measures to secure your account.  

Modifying or Deleting Your Personal Information

If you have a I2W account, you can access, modify or export your personal information, or delete your account. To protect information from accidental or malicious destruction, we may maintain residual copies for a brief time period. But, if you delete your account, your information and content will be unrecoverable after that time. I2W may preserve and maintain copies of your information when required to do so by law.  

Business Transfers

If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, reorganization or sale of assets such that your information would be transferred or become subject to a different privacy policy, we’ll notify you in advance so you can opt out of any such new policy, and you may delete your account before transfer is effective.

If you delete your I2W account, I2W will no longer send you such communications. When you interact with an communication sent from I2W (such as opening an email or clicking on a particular link in an email), we may receive information about that interaction.
