Versión en Español:

iHeartMedia, Inc. and our affiliates and subsidiaries (collectively “iHeartMedia”, “we”, “us”, or “our”) are committed to maintaining your confidence and trust as it relates to the privacy of your personal information. This Privacy Policy describes how we collect, protect, use, and disclose your personal information, both offline and online, including as part of our websites, mobile applications (“Apps”), and interactive features (collectively, “Platforms”), and your rights and choices in connection with your information. If you are an employee, contractor, or job applicant, your personal information collected in those contexts will be subject to a separate privacy notice that we provide to you where and when appropriate. 



We (and the vendors we hire to perform business functions on our behalf) and other parties who have integrated their technologies into our Platforms and services may collect, receive, and develop several categories of personal information about you depending on the nature of your interactions with us: 

Identifiers: We may collect your name, e-mail address, telephone number, mobile phone number, mailing address, date of birth, social media account handles or usernames, and iHeartMedia account usernames and passwords. You may create a personal iHeartRadio Code by enabling this feature through the settings in the Apps; the iHeartRadio Code is connected to a unique identifier that ties back to your iHeartRadio account and the information associated with your account. We may collect your digital signature in certain circumstances.  

Demographic and Protected Classification Information: We may collect your zip code, age, gender, language preferences, marital status, and political affiliation.

Purchase and Preference Information: We may collect information about the artists, stations, podcasts, playlists, and genres you are interested in; content you purchase, access, or download; records of your transactions and subscription purchases; and records of contests you enter. 

Internet Browser, Usage, and Device Information: We use tracking tools like cookies and pixels to automatically collect information about your interactions with our Platforms, such as your IP address and other unique identifiers for the computer, mobile device, tablet or other device you use to connect (“Device”), including the hardware model and mobile network information. We collect information about your use of the Platforms, including your browser type; operating system; activations; listening times; what areas of the Platforms you access and for how long; search terms you enter; how long you stay on a page; which hyperlinks and content or advertisements you click on; which songs, playlists, audiovisual content and other iHeartMedia users you interact with; and the page served and preceding page views. If you use our Apps, we may also look at how often you use the Apps and where you downloaded it. We may collect information about your views, clicks, and interactions with our digital content and advertisements (both on and off the Platforms), as well as our promotional emails. If you create an account using your credentials from a third-party social media site, we will have access to certain personal information from that site, as described further below. 

Location Information: If you choose to turn on your Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or other geolocation functionality when you use the Apps, subject to your consent, we will collect general location information about your Device when you access or use the Platforms (but not your precise geolocation within the ranges defined by applicable laws unless we obtain a separate consent from you).     

Voice Data: If you enable voice control features for one of our products on your device, we will collect audio recordings and transcripts of what you say when you interact with one of our voice features. For example, you may be able to use your voice to interact with select audio advertisements or to search, select, and listen to music. For more information, see our Voice Data FAQ.

Professional Information: If you interact with us on behalf of business customers, vendors, or other companies, in addition to other personal information described in this notice, we may also collect items like your job title, office location, compensation or payments, and engagement history with us. 

Audio, Electronic, and Visual Information: If you choose to submit voice recordings, photos or videos to the Platform, we will collect that information. 

Sensitive Personal Information: We may collect your social security number if you are the winner of a promotion or contest. We will collect your payment card details when you make a purchase. In addition to the above, if you interact with us on behalf of business customers, vendors, or other companies, we may also collect your driver’s license number, background check information, and social security number if relevant to our relationship with you. 

Inferences: Using the other pieces of personal information collected about you, we draw inferences about you, reflecting what we believe to be your interests, characteristics, predispositions, and attitudes.

  • To respond to your questions and requests;

Automatically from your devices: We, as well as advertisers and/or service providers, may use a variety of tracking tools and technologies that automatically or passively collect personal information like browser/usage/device information and location information any time you visit or interact with the Platforms, our emails, and our advertising and content on other websites and platforms.
