Policies & Guidelines
TCRfm Privacy Statement
This is the Privacy Statement of Tramore Community Radio (“TCRfm”).
TCRFM respects the privacy of all users of our website (i.e. our desktop and mobile sites), TCRFM social media pages and apps. This Privacy Statement outlines our policy concerning the collection and use of personal information which is gathered by TCRFM from users of this website, TCRFM social media pages and our apps.
We may update our Privacy Statement from time to time to reflect any changes in technology, legislation or our data use practices which may affect the way in which we process your personal information.
TCRFM is not responsible for the privacy practices of any external websites and platforms which may be accessed or used in connection with your use of our website, TCRFM social media pages or our apps and so we would advise that you review the privacy statements of those websites and platforms as they may be subject to different privacy requirements.
Any processing of personal information gathered by TCRFM as a result of your use of this website, TCRFM social media pages or our apps is governed by the provisions of the Irish Data Protection Acts 1988 and 2003.
What personal information does TCRFM collect and use?
Competitions: When you enter a competition, TCRFM may collect and use your name, and your contact details (e.g. postal or email address / mobile number) in connection with the competition.
TCRFM Sign In: If you create an TCRFM Sign In account, we may collect and use your name, contact details, gender, IP address, browser, operating system and device (including its location) you used and details regarding your website, TCRFM social media pages and app usage (e.g. pages time / date of pages visited / actions taken). We may also sometimes track who opened and clicked the links in the communications that we send so that we can measure a campaign’s success. If you’ve signed up to TCRFM Sign In, we may combine your account information with information we collect about you using cookies, web beacons, device identifiers etc.
Social media pages: If you post content on social media pages controlled by TCRFM, this information may be made publically available and used in connection with the operation and promotion of our social media pages and TCRFM. Your posted content may be removed.
Disruptive Behaviour: If you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on or to TCRFM.ie, TCRFM social media pages or any of our apps or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on TCRFM.ie, TCRFM social media pages or any of our apps, TCRFM can use whatever information that is available to it about you to stop such behaviour. This may, where we feel it’s appropriate, involve informing relevant third parties such as your employer, school, e-mail/Internet provider and law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour.
Service administration. If you are notified on TCRFM.ie or an app that your information may be used to allow TCRFM to contact you for “service administration purposes”, this means that TCRFM may contact you for a number of purposes related to the service you have signed up for. For example, we may wish to provide you with password reminders or notify you that the particular service has been suspended for maintenance.
We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely, in accordance with the Data Protection Acts 1988 and 2003.
How do you use my information for marketing purposes?
We and our trusted partners will not use your information to contact you by email, phone or SMS for direct marketing or promotional purposes unless you specifically agree to be contacted for such purposes at the time you submit your information to us, or at a later time if you sign up specifically to receive such promotional information. We will not provide your information to third parties who may contact you for direct marketing or promotional purposes unless you have consented to us giving them your information for that purpose.
If you sign up to marketing communications from TCRFM companies or to in-app push notifications on our apps, TCRFM companies may send you information about our products and services which we think may be of interest to you including our weekly newsletter. In this case, we may build up a profile of you based upon what we infer from your usage of the different pages of our website and apps, e.g. by using your TCRFM Sign In account information and combining it with information we collect using your IP address, cookies, web beacons, SDKs, device identifier, and play data (e.g. what you stream and how long you spend streaming) etc, including the location of your device. For instance, we may use some categories of information (including interest groups, year of birth, gender and region) to tailor the information we send to you. We do this so that we send you content you’re interested in, instead of unwanted and irrelevant stuff.
When you sign up to marketing communications, we’ll normally contact you by email, but we may send you marketing texts also if you’ve given us your mobile number for this purpose. If you have just signed up to in-app push notifications, we’ll only send you in-app push notifications.
If you sign up to marketing communications from our trusted partners, we may provide your name and contact details you gave us for marketing (e.g. email or mobile number) to our trusted partners (such as organisations that are partnering with us in relation to the provision or sponsorship of TV programmes) so that they can send you marketing communications.
What if I am under 18?
If you are aged 18 or under please ask your parent or guardian for their permission to provide us with your contact information.
Do you pass any personal information to third parties?
We use a service provider for email marketing communications. The service provider is under a contractual obligation to keep personal information for the purpose for which it is intended and not to pass on any personal information to any third parties.
We may also use other services providers in some cases. These service providers are also under a similar contractual obligation.
We will not provide your information to third parties who may contact you for direct marketing or promotional purposes unless you have consented to us giving them your information for that purpose.
Do you transfer any of the information collected abroad for other purposes?
TCRFM does not generally transfer any personal information abroad.
However, in some cases we may use carefully selected service providers to perform certain functions which may be located outside of Ireland. For instance, where you have signed up for marketing communications, you have agreed to the transfer of your information to our email service provider which is located in the US. These service providers are bound by a contract with us.
