The world’s top data brokerage company claims to collect and sell detailed public and private data from more than 2 billion people around the world. Another industry leader has a database of 3,000 identities and behavioral characteristics of more than 700 million individuals, including you, all of which are available for sale.
Internet companies sell this information to data brokers. Internet companies with this experience usually purchase a technology or network service, and then provide it to users for free in order to quickly establish a user base. In this model, it is important to quickly establish a user base. The more data they collect about users, their behavior, likes and dislikes, memberships, medical conditions, etc., the more money they make, and the sooner they can start selling it to data brokers and advertisers. Many of these services do this without your permission or knowledge. However, in general, it can be shocking to study the terms and agreements of the service in depth.
Your characteristics and shopping habits are not the only things at risk. The free service owns the content created on it, such as your podcasts, and they can use it freely in any way they see fit. Do you want to give up ownership of your art and creations to gain the ability to share? We don’t think you need to do this.
In this case, by collecting and selling your data and ensuring that they have the right to reuse, redistribute and profit from any content you create on their platform and/or using their technology; in accordance with the terms of their agreement .
Since starting our business in 2005, we have considered many different ways to generate revenue. After all, we are a business and need to keep the lights bright. Some of these ideas come from internal, many from external influences, but each idea is based on “is this what we intended to do when we started this company?”
We founded this company to make it easy for anyone to create, maintain and develop podcasts.
Our simple philosophy is that the content you produce, create, and produce using podcasts is yours. We are here to support you and help you share with the world. This is the money you paid us.
We will not grow and sell your data. We do not claim ownership of any content you create on our platform. You can use our tools for free without giving up your ownership of the content created using them.
We think about these values every day and respect our podcasts and their creative rights, so we want to let us not only for our podcasts, but also let all podcasters know what their rights as creators are.
Take a look and tell us what you think, if you have any questions, please feel free to let us know.
