This policy explains what various tracking methods are, and why they are used. It also explains your right to control their use.
Below is a list of the types of trackers that appear on our site.
Essential trackers are required for our site to operate. They allow you to navigate our site and use its services and features (e.g., cookies that help you stay logged in). This is only the case when you create a login and then become either an access producer or playback producer with us. Without essential trackers, our site will not run smoothly; in fact, our site (or certain services or features) might not even be available to you simply because of technical limitations.
Advertising Cookies & Trackers
Advertising cookies are designed to customize advertisements. As a Non-Profit Organization, we do not show advertisements on our website. These groups of cookies and trackers only apply on the facebook platform, which we use to collect information about visitors that allow us to send promotions of our shows and target interests based on time of day visited, type of show watched, etc. They are not essential to the functioning of our site.
Analytics trackers collect or use information about your site use, which helps us improve our site. Among the uses of analytics trackers are to show us which pages are most frequently visited, help us record difficulties you have with our site, track subscription purchases and behaviors leading to subscription purchases, and measure how well ads perform.
These trackers add up our readers’ visits to show us larger patterns in our audience. We look at these larger patterns to analyze site traffic.
Analytics and Customization cookies:
These cookies collect information that is used either in aggregate form to help us understand how our Websites are being used or how effective our marketing campaigns are, or to help us customize our Websites for you.
These cookies are used to make advertising messages more relevant to you. They perform functions like preventing the same ad from continuously reappearing, ensuring that ads are properly displayed for advertisers, and in some cases selecting advertisements that are based on your interests.
When you first come to our site, you may receive a notification that trackers are present. By clicking or tapping “accept,” you agree to the use of these trackers as described here.
You can manage your tracker settings by opting out of specific (or all) trackers.
In addition to the options above, you can refuse or accept trackers from our site (or any other site) in your browser’s settings. If you refuse trackers, you might not be able to sign in or use other tracker-dependent features of our site.
Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but this is typically something you can adjust. Information for each browser can be found in the links below:
Safari on desktop and Safari Mobile (iPhone and iPads): Note that, by default, Safari is engineered to protect you from being tracked from site to site unless you disable Intelligent Tracking Prevention (ITP).
Firefox: By default, Firefox protects you from cross-site tracking so long as you have not disabled Enhanced Tracking Protection (ETP). There is therefore less need to manage cookies to protect your privacy.
Microsoft Edge: Enabling tracking prevention with Edge will protect you from being tracked between sites, such that there will be less of a need to manage your cookies in order to protect your privacy.
Brave: Brave has several mechanisms to keep you from being tracked online, but you can change your privacy settings if you wish to have greater control over its decisions.
For more information about other browsers, please refer to this “All About Cookies” guide.
