Information about Privacy on Pandora
The free version of Pandora is supported by advertisements, and we want to be able to show the most relevant ads to our listeners.
We use the three pieces of demographic information you provide at registration -- age, gender, and zip code -- to personalize advertising on Pandora. We do this both on Pandora.com and in our mobile applications. This means we may pass age, gender and zip code to our ad-serving partners so they can personalize the ads you see. Please note, however, that our advertisers never know who they are serving such ads to -- merely that it is an anonymous person of a particular age, gender, and/or location.
TIP: When registering for a Pandora account, be sure to enter just your Birth Year (i.e: 1975) - Not your full birthdate
Pandora will never use your email address to send unsolicited messages, nor do we sell your personal information to spammers. The only advertising we display comes in the form of banners on the Pandora site. The only email we send is our opt-in "Inside The Genome" newsletter. I have removed you from that list.
If you are receiving increased amounts of spam, rest assured that it is not coming from us. Sadly, the techniques that spammers use to harvest addresses are increasingly sinister. I'm not sure that there is any surefire way to completely avoid it. If you have ever posted your email in a public website, message board, guestbook, or blog, you are likely vulnerable. Try to avoid signing up on sites that appear questionable in nature. Many spammers also use "brute force" techniques by emailing arbitrary strings from a given domain name. Unfortunately, avoiding that can be very difficult.
While prevention is tricky, you can definitely regulate the amount of spam you see. Email clients like Mozilla Thunderbird have built in spam filters that you can "train". The more messages you mark as spam, the fewer of them appear. Further, many of the larger online email providers like Hotmail, Gmail, and Yahoo have spam filters built in that work quite well. Be sure to utilize them.
Best of luck, and rest assured – your security and privacy is of our utmost concern.
