Your Privacy | Our Reputation
Calm Radio is committed to respecting your privacy. We will not sell or disclose any information that identifies you to a third party unrelated to our business operations. Calm Radio works hard to protect your personal and financial information.
Information We Collect and Why
- Personal information: for log in access, communication, and account management, i.e. name and email. We may share de-identified tracking information with advertisers when we offer a free service.

We may also collect other information made available on or through your Third Party Application account, including: your name, profile picture, country, hometown, email address, date of birth, gender, friends’ names, photos, and networks. This information is needed for you to access your account across platforms or third-party applications.
- Billing and payment information: For members with a paid subscription, additional information for processing your payment may be required, i.e. billing address, credit card information and/or PayPal account.
- Technical data: i.e. URL information, type of device, browser type and version, operating system version, Unique Device ID or Identifiers, IP address, location information, network connection, and language:
- to improve or customize user experience

How We Protect Your Information
Calm Radio has many security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of any information under our control.
For sensitive financial data such as credit card data, all orders are transmitted over secure Internet connections using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption technology. Your raw credit card information is never stored on our site and can never be seen by Calm Radio or any of its employees. Credit Card data is always sent by SSL encryption and stored with our PCI Level 1 Secure Merchant Processor. Any subsequent recurring billing orders will be generated via tokenization from the Merchant Processor.
All of your non-financial personal information and sign-in are stored in a highly encrypted format at all times. Calm Radio’s website data, and more importantly all user information, is further protected by a multi-layer firewall based security system.
Personal and financial information may be collected, stored, and shared with essential third-party applications, organizations, or partners that help us analyze and operate our business. These third party entities may help us with appropriate payment processing, protection of your private information, and security of our website, servers, applications, and user data.
