Spin1038 & Spin Southwest adheres to the Data Protection Acts 1988 & 2003 and Regulation 5 of Statutory Instrument 336/ 2011.

Spin1038 & Spin Southwest does not collect information that personally identifies individuals except when individuals provide such specific information on a voluntary basis. There may be occasions where specific personal information is requested before an individual can access digital content of Spin1038 & Spin Southwest or where registration helps us to ensure that digital content standards on these sections of the site are rigorously upheld or that contact can be made with prize winners or where a user requests to be sent push notifications. Information may be requested in order to personalise the users’ digital content on Spin1038 & Spin Southwest platforms.

In all such cases, Spin1038 & Spin Southwest will collect only information that is voluntarily provided by the user and undertakes that such information will be kept strictly confidential. Individual information provided to Spin1038 and/or Spin Southwest to gain access to any digital content will not be sold or made available to a third party apart from its processor Communicorp Group Limited.

Spin1038 & Spin Southwest  reserves the right, however, to allow its processor Communicorp Group Limited to perform statistical analyses of user behaviours and characteristics, in order to measure interest in and use of the various sections of its sites so as to improve design and navigation and to gather marketing information.

Spin1038 & Spin Southwest  uses cookies only for the above-mentioned purposes and will not use them to identify users or to track non- Spin1038 & Spin Southwest  usage. On occasion we may have to geo-block content due to rights restrictions with certain radio programmes outside this jurisdiction.
