No. We do not collect personal data with our player. The only data we collect are domain names and app names where our player is used and the number of player starts for each domain/app. This is required for billing purposes and to insure global availability of our player. Some 3rd-party services that we have an integration with could however be collecting personal data or using cookies, for example analytics or advertisement services.
Our understanding is that localStorage and IndexedDB are considered equivalent to cookies. Radiant Media Player makes use of localStorage or IndexedDB with some of its features. While we do not collect personal data with localStorage or IndexedDB, you still need to comply with cookies laws when using localStorage or IndexedDB.
Our player uses localStorage by default with the
rememberVolume setting. localStorage is also used with the player when the
allowLocalStorage setting to false.
The player also uses IndexedDB when using offline storage & playback. This feature is however not enabled by default and needs to be explicitly turned on for IndexedDB to be used with our player.
3rd-party services that we have an integration with could be collecting personal data or using cookies, for example analytics or advertisement services.
When using Google IMA you need to request cookie consent in all cases. If you are using personalized ads you also need to request user consent for ads personalization. For Google Ad Manager
users, you may request non-personalized ads by appending
&npa=1 to an ad tag. See more information on Google
site here. If you are using another ad-serving service then please refer to the documentation of that ad-serving service to know how to request non-personalized ads.
When using our rmp-vast parser you also need to request cookie consent as well.
When using Google Analytics you need to request cookie consent. This applies to using our Google Analytics integration as well. See more information on Google site here.
Other analytics services like Mux Data or MediaMelon are very likely requiring cookies consent as well. Please refer to the documentation of those analytics services for more information.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation in European Union (EU) law on data protection and privacy in the EU and the European Economic Area (EEA). The GDPR's primary aim is to give control to individuals over their personal data.
Long-story short, if you are targeting an audience for your video app or site in the European Union and you are collecting personal data (you likely are), you need to comply with GDPR terms and you need to request consent from your viewers before collecting personal data.
Further to this some strict interpretation of GDPR compliance may require all servers delivering content to viewers in the European Union to be located in the European Union. To comply with this case scenario with Radiant Media Player you must:
strictGdprCompliance setting follows:
When set to true, allow the player to use secondary license servers located inside the European Union. Only use if you have a business requirement to do so. Default: false.
We also support the
__gdpr-consent__ ad tag variable with our player provided the IAB Transparency and Consent Framework (TCF) v2.0 is implemented on your site/app.
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) gives consumers more control over the personal information that businesses collect about them and the CCPA regulations provide guidance on how to implement the law. This landmark law secures new privacy rights for California consumers, including:
Since Radiant Media Player does not collect or sell personal information, no further action is needed to comply with CCPA with our player for "Do Not Sell My Personal Information". This however may become untrue if you are using our player with 3rd-party services like analytics or advertisement services. Please refer to the documentation of those 3rd-party services to understand how to best comply with CCPA terms. For Google IMA SDK, an article on the subject of CCPA preparation is available here .
We also support the
__uspdata__ ad tag variable with our player provided the USP API is implemented on your site/app.
