WRN - Privacy Policy

Effective 1 October 2009

About WRN

WRN is an online Internet portal, owned and operated by WRN Broadcast Limited, where users can access audio and visual content from world radio and television stations, and then customise how they access them ("Service"). WRN users can setup their own preferences, including, timezones, streaming and download options, languages and favourites, all from the same Internet portal.

WRN cares deeply about online privacy. If you have any questions concerning this privacy policy, please contact us.

Information Collection and Used by WRN

WRN collects user submitted information such as your name, email address, age and gender to authenticate users and to send notifications to those users relating to the Service.

WRN also logs non-personally-identifiable information including IP address, profile information, aggregate user data, and browser type, from users and visitors to the site. This data is used to manage the WRN website, track usage and improve the Service. This non-personally-identifiable information may be shared with third-parties to provide more relevant services and advertisements to members. User IP addresses are recorded for security and monitoring purposes.

Visitors and users can ask questions in the 'Help' section. These questions may be answered on the website for all visitors to see, but the name of the visitor who asks the question will not be shown. WRN may edit the question for content.

We may use a user's email address to send updates, a newsletter or news regarding the Service. Users may choose to unsubscribe from email of this type in the subscriptions options in the user "My Account" section.

From time to time, WRN or a partner, may sponsor a promotion, sweepstake or contest on WRN. Users may be asked to provide personal information including name, email address or home address or to answer questions in order to participate. We may transfer personal information to certain ad partners that you have explicitly requested to receive information from. It will be clear at the point of collection who is collecting the personal information and whose privacy statement will apply.

Use of Cookies

WRN uses cookies to store users preferences and to record session information, for purposes including ensuring that visitors are not repeatedly offered the same advertisements and to customise newsletter, advertising, and Web page content based on browser type and user profile information. We do not link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information you submit while on our site. You may be able to configure your browser to accept or reject all or some cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set -- each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences -- however, you must enable cookies from WRN in order to use most functions on the site.


WRN's website contains links to other sites. WRN is not responsible for the privacy policies and/or practices on other sites. When clicking through to another site a user should read the privacy policy stated on that site. Our privacy policy only governs information collected on WRN.

Chat Rooms and Forums

Please be aware that whenever you voluntarily post information to the WRN Chat Rooms or Forums, that the information you post can be accessed by the public.

Correcting/Updating or Removing Information

WRN users may modify or update their personal information at any time by logging into their account and accessing the "My Account" section.

Third Party Advertising

Ads appearing on the WRN website site or as part of the Service may be delivered to users by WRN or one of our Web advertising partners. Our Web advertising partners may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement. In this way, ad servers may compile information about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw their advertisements and determine which ads are clicked on. This information allows an ad network to deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This privacy statement covers the use of cookies by WRN and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.


WRN user accounts are secured by user-created passwords. The internet is not a secure medium, however WRN takes precautions to insure that user account information is kept private. We use reasonable measures to protect user information that is stored within our database, and we restrict access to user information to those WRN employees who need access to perform their job functions, such as our customer service personnel and technical staff. Please note that we cannot guarantee the security of user account information. Unauthorised entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of user information at any time.

Sharing and Disclosure of Information WRN Collects

Except as otherwise described in this privacy statement, WRN will not disclose personal information to any third party unless we believe that disclosure is necessary: (1) to conform to legal requirements or to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other legal process received by WRN, whether or not a response is required by applicable law; (2) to enforce the WRN Terms of Use Agreement or to protect our rights; or (3) to protect the safety of members of the public and users of the Service and the WRN Website. WRN reserves the right to transfer personal information to a successor in title that acquires rights to that information as a result of the sale of WRN or substantially all of its assets to that successor in title. For more information see the "Changes in Our Privacy Policy" section below.

Owing to the global nature of the Internet infrastructure, the information you provide may be transferred in transit to countries outside the European Economic Area that do not have similar protections in place regarding your data and its use as set out in this Privacy Policy. However, WRN has taken the steps outlined above to try to improve the security of your information. By submitting your information you consent to these transfers.
