Who we are

Our website address is: https://www.airukradio.com.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it


When visitors chat or use social media functions (both internally and externally) on the site we collect the data shown in the relevant application, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. We also collect this information if you complete any general forms, including application forms, complaint, contact or request forms.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


Who we share your data with

In general, we have no interest in your data, and strongly advise against the use of personal data such as dates of birth, home address, credit card numbers, etc., on this site. None of this information is required to use the website, so please let us know if you appear to be asked for it.

Threats or harassment against members of the community, presenters or other staff, are strictly prohibited. As such, we will take any necessary legal action to ensure that our website is a safe environment.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.  Any data we ask for is the barest minimum required to operate the site for you, and to personalise it according.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Additional information

How we protect your data

We protect your data, for the most part, by not collecting it! Any data that is collected is stored securely, with limited access. We may monitor how you use the site, and the site administrator can see any data inputted into any part of the site. We cannot see passwords, as these are encrypted before storage. We regularly review our procedures and will take additional steps as necessary.

What data breach procedures we have in place

If we are made aware of a breach of your data, we will tell you within 72 hours, as required under GDPR, provided that the breach is a significant threat to your rights and freedoms.
