Privacy Policy

We at Classic Soul Radio (“”) know that people’s privacy is very important to them. Our goal is to create a  safe online environment of trust and community with our users and to treat the personal information you furnish us with the utmost respect. The following Privacy Policy discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices  for this web site (hereinafter referred to as the “Site”).

By accessing, using and/or downloading materials from this Site,  you agree on your own behalf and on behalf of each entity on whose behalf you  act to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Information Collection

You can visit this Site without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself, including your e-mail address. In  this case, our web server may collect the name of the IP address you used to  access the Internet and the web site you came from and visit next. This  information is used by us and our business partners to measure the number of  visits, average time spent, page views, and other statistics about visitors to  this Site in general. We may also use this data to monitor Site performance,  for systems administration purposes, to make this Site easier and more  convenient to use and to report information in aggregate form to our advisers  and other third-parties (e.g. how many visitors log in to this site).

We will never share or sell your personal information with/to anyone else, unless we have your explicit permission to do so. Classic Soul  Radio does collect information about the users of the Site for marketing and  research purposes through contest registration forms, pledge forms and feedback  forms. This includes data on areas such as the type of programming you listen  to, your profession, etc. This data will only be used in the aggregate (for  example, telling a business partner that 25% of Classic Soul Radio visitors or  28% of Classic Soul Radio listeners tune-in more than 10 times per week).

Financial information that is collected is used to process online pledges, and we keep a database of all financial transactions. The selection of  gifts sometimes requires us to telephone you to resolve shipping problems, but  we will never use your phone number for sales or marketing activities.

Classic Soul Radio does not sell, rent, or give the station’s  donor list to any other organization or third-party. This policy is consistent with our belief that donors have placed their financial trust in Classic Soul  Radio. We appreciate and respect that trust and will do everything within our  power to guarantee that Classic Soul Radio’s donor list remains confidential.


Classic Soul Radio places an industry-standard “cookie”  file on your computer to more accurately count the number of visitors and track activity on our websites. This cookie is totally anonymous and does not store  any personal information about individual users. Cookies can also be used to  store certain visitor preferences, like your favorite media player or a bulletin board password. In such cases, users have a choice of storing such  information in a cookie or typing it each time they visit the site.

E-mail Communications

Classic Soul Radio regularly sends email Newsletters and  membership correspondence to our registered members and visitors with  information about Classic Soul Radio programs, services or membership  opportunities. If you do not wish to receive any email from Classic Soul Radio,  please indicate your preference on the pledge form when making a pledge, visit  the e-mail newsletter sign up page to “opt-out”, or contact us at We will  do our best to make your change in a timely manner.

Classic Soul Radio never sells, exchanges or lends to third parties any email or telephone information you provide when making a Membership Pledge or subscribing to our E-mail communications.

When You Make an Online  Membership Pledge

Classic Soul Radio will ask you to provide the information  necessary to process and service your membership pledge: name, billing and  shipping address, telephone number, email address, and credit card number. This information is encrypted for your security and is only seen by our membership  staff who processes your gift and our contracted fulfillment agencies.

Server Security

Where Classic Soul Radio considers it appropriate, the Classic  Soul Radio web site uses encryption and/or authentication tools among other  methods to protect certain web-based personal information. E-mails you send us  are not necessarily secure when they are transmitted to us.

Certain sections of our Site allow you to pledge online for which  you may be required to provide your credit card information. These sections use  the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Protocol for browsers that support 128-bit  encryption (such as Netscape® Navigator version 2.0 or greater, or Microsoft®  Internet Explorer version 2.1 or greater). SSL encrypts information as it  travels between the customer and Classic Soul Radio so that your pledge  information cannot be read as it travels over the Internet. You will know that  your browser is secure by a change in the URL from http:// to https://. If the URL on a page asking you to provide information remains as http://, beware as  this may result in an unsecure transmission. If you are not using a browser which adheres to the SSL Protocol and does not support 128-bit encryption, the  information you provide may not be secure and we recommend that you contact  Classic Soul Radio by telephone to place your pledge.

When processing credit card pledges over the Internet, Classic Soul Radio or our third-party service provider will verify your credit card  information with the appropriate financial institution prior to processing your  pledge. Neither we nor our third-party service provider will supply your credit  card information to any other third party.

We instruct our employees with access to your information that it is to be used only in adherence with the principles set forth in this Privacy Policy and the laws applicable to our organization. Employees who misuse customer information shall be subject to disciplinary action.
