Who we are
We are Let’s Hear It, a podcasting artist collective and network. Learn more at our About Us page. Our website address is: https://letshearit.network.
We treat your privacy as we do our own. We attempt to be thoughtful, straightforward, and rigorous when addressing these sensitive matters. To that end, we do not collect any personal data about you, either on this site or through your podcasting app.
We do however collect anonymous statistics around the number of listens. See below for more details.
What data we collect and why
For Our Listeners
Whenever you listen to one of our podcasts, either on our website or through your favorite podcast app, we collect anonymous listen statistics. That’s just a fancy way of saying, we count how many times people listen to our podcasts, and from which app. This data cannot be traced back to you personally.
We collect this data to measure our success, and to help improve our content. It may also be used in the future to attract potential advertisers.
We store standard server access logs every time you visit one of our web pages, or download one of our podcasts.
We store the time of the request, the originating IP address, and the browser used. We use this data occasionally for debugging purposes and to help trace malicious activity.
These logs are stored for a total of 4 months, and then permanently deleted.
Embedded content from other websites
Content on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
We do not collect or track any other data, what is mentioned above.
