Starting now and officially by May 25, 2018, it is necessary for you to review and accept our updated Terms of Service and Privacy Policy – a legal requirement to continue accessing and using Spreaker’s products and services.

Over the course of the last few months, we have been working behind the scenes to improve and make Spreaker’s content management system compliant with the new GDPR policies (General Data Protection Regulation).

If you’re wondering what the GDPR is, don’t worry! The GDPR is a new Regulation which aims to protect users digital privacy rights by strengthening laws on data protection and giving EU citizens complete control over their personal data – great news for online users everywhere. This means that all users will be the owners of their online data and it is the controller’s (ours) obligation to make sure your rights are respected according to the Regulation.

So, what does that mean for you when it comes to how Spreaker uses your data?

We will only keep users’ personal data only if it is strictly necessary for accessing and using the platform.

Grant a permanent removal – in case of account deletion – of all of your personal data on Spreaker (and its partners) within 30 days.

Continue our daily work to protect and keep personal data secure – with particular attention with regards to children (there will be no data collection and platform access for persons under the age of 16 years old).

How we will keep our transparency commitment to the community:
