At Balle Balle Radio, we respect your privacy.
One thing's for sure: we'll never sell your name and e-mail address
to other people to send you tremendous deals on cable descramblers,
get rich quick schemes, or crafty ways to help a bloke from Nigeria
launder his money
On entering a competition, we hold your details on our database. We use it to
stop you from entering more than once, and to recognise you if you enter another
competition, or become a Balle Balle Radio VIP. If you enter a mobile number
as your telephone number, we'll also greet you by name when you text us. We'll
not use the data to contact you further if you've asked us not to, and if you
do not contact us within twelve months, your details will be removed automatically.
When you enter a competition that we've organised with another company, we may
share your details with that company. There is a tick box that you can tick if
you don't want them to use your details for any other purpose.
When you contact us, we take a few configuration details of your computer - which
you'll see in any reply (your IP address, browser agent string, and referrer
- and sometimes the content of the player cookie). We also ask for your phone
number. This information is used to help us with any technical issues you may
have, but we don't keep any of your information other than to deal with your
specific query. It doesn't go near a database.
By signing up for our newsletter or becoming a Balle Balle Radio VIP, you'll
get an e-mail every week, and occasionally an extra one (once every few months)
when we've got something great to tell you. Every newsletter comes with an unsubscribe
link (though we hope you'll never use it).
Cookies are delicious delicacies. For websites, they're normally there to stop
you from having to constantly tell a website some information about yourself.
Our player will shortly move to player.BalleBalleradio.co.uk, and store its configuration
information on the Balle Balleradio.co.uk domain. This means that the player
will have access to your VIP number and cookie information, if you're logged
on - so our player will be able to know who you are, and enable us to run more
applications configured as you want them.
you visit, notably music artist features and DJ features. It will also store
competitions you have recently entered. This is used for a new 'My favourite
bands / My favourite shows' feature throughout the site, enabling you to get
quicker access to your most-visited pages. We'll also use the competition details
to enable us to flag up competitions you have not entered, thus making it easier
to win on the Balle Balle Radio website. Cookies are also, as before, used
when voting, or in our chat, backstage and forum areas. Copies of certain cookies
will be periodically taken and held on your central database record on the
Balle Balle Radio website, to enable you to use more than one computer with
the Balle Balle Radio website.
It is our aim to enable you to opt out of this automatically-generated information
via a control on this page. This will not affect your Balle Balle Radio VIP
account, though will result in reduced functionality on the site. This setting
will be stored in a cookie which you must accept in order to stop us writing
