all about podcasting
A space to share contests, interviews, tips and more
Not all free services on the internet break the law in violating your privacy, selling your data and/or profiting from something you created but, when you see “Free”, you should be asking, “How do they make money?”.
In this case, by collecting and selling your data and ensuring their right to repurpose, redistribute, and monetize any of your content you created on their platform and/or using their technology; per their terms of agreement.
Since the launch of our business in 2005, we have considered many different ways in which we could generate revenue. We are a business after all and need to keep the lights on. Some of those ideas came from within and many from outside influences but each of them was considered on the basis, "Is this what we set out to do when we started this company?".
We started this company to make it easy for anyone to create, maintain and grow a podcast.
Our simple philosophy: What you make, create, and produce with your podcast is owned by you. We are here to support you and help you share it with the world. That is what you pay us for.
We do not farm and sell your data. We do not claim ownership over anything you create on our platform. Our tools are free for you to use without surrendering your ownership of the content you create with them.
We think about these values and honor our podcasters and their creative rights every day so we thought, let’s write them down for not only our podcasters but for all podcasters to know what their rights are as creators.
Here is our Podcaster Bill of Rights
Take a look, tell us what you think and always, let us know if you have any questions.
Keep making great podcasts and rest assured we are here to help you, not exploit you.
