- Session tracking: we track when a listener begins a session and when it ends.
- Demographics capture form: we use a cookie to track whether the listener has seen that form, so that it only displays one time during the initial visit.
- Embedded widgets: Facebook, Twitter, etc. may set their own cookies.
Because we are the service provider, and because we have traffic originating from EU, a notice must be presented to listeners that asks for consent of cookies. EU General Data Protection Regulation law (GDPR) has an effective date of May 25, 2018.
