As part of your listening and online experience with Radio Free Americana, you may be supplying us with certain personal information. RFA does not sell or provide such information to third parties for commercial gain. Following are applications where you may supply information to us:
When you submit a question or comment to RFA using either the contact form on either (1) our contact web page or (2) our mobile app, we require that you provide certain information necessary for us to respond. We use the contact form information for the purpose of responding to your inquiry. We will not share the information you supply on the contact form with another party without your express permission and, in that event, for the purpose of responding to your inquiry. (For example, if you need help with a technology issue related to the RFA listening experience, it may be helpful to share relevant technical information you supply with a third party to resolve your issue.)
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you use the contact form (or any other means of providing information) for the purpose of submitting your music for airplay consideration, you agree that RFA may play your music on our broadcast subject to all regulations governing music licensing. You further agree that RFA may publish information about your music for the purpose of informing and providing access for the legal purchase of your music by our audience.

When you listen to RFA, you are connecting to one of our stream servers. As part of this connection, our server is able to identify your IP address. However, we are not able to know (nor do we want to know) the names of any persons or physical addresses associated with IP addresses. (Notes: If you have a dynamic IP address, like most home users, your IP address changes periodically. Further, virtually any connection that you make on the internet, to any website or server, involves making your IP address known.)
Our mobile app developer, autopo.st, provides RFA the capability to send messages for receipt by everyone with the app installed. (RFA has no knowledge of who has installed the app, nor do we collect any information about who has installed the app.) This messaging capability will be used sparingly, for the purpose of notifying users of updates that may be available for the app or related technical issues.
