GDPR Compliance

Even though the GDPR only applies to data from EU residents, we took the decision to apply broadly the requirement of the regulation. This means that except in some rare cases, we don’t restrict any privacy-related feature based on the geographical location of a data subject.

Here are some of the actions we’ve taken to ensure we’re compliant:

Log retention

To improve, debug or prevent fraud on the service, we keep a variety of logs. We now make sure logs are destroyed at most 3 months after there collection date. We never use those logs of anything else than monitoring and debugging.

Data portability

The GDPR gives the right to any user to download any data that he provides to a service. This allows for easier migration to other services. We think this is a great idea and PodcastWise has always made it possible for user to download their data.

Right of erasure

Because we deal with publicly available web data, information removed from a website are also removed from our database. But if a data subject wishes to speed up the removal of any in our index, we offer a simple an efficient way to claim email addresses. It is then possible to either update the data or entirely remove it.
