KUT and KUTX use Nielsen’s digital measurement software to gain insights into how long our listeners are tuning in, and when. We are required to offer listeners an Opt Out tool from Nielsen so any individual’s usage will not be measured. Presently we are only using their digital measurement software in our mobile applications. You can find a link to the Opt Out tool within our apps under the About menu.

Below is an abbreviated version Nielsen’s Privacy Statement.

Nielsen uses its proprietary digital measurement products to measure and analyze how consumers engage with media across online, mobile and emerging technologies, and Nielsen offers insights into consumer behavior. We do not identify, or attempt to identify, the individuals we collect content measurement data from.

Nielsen’s proprietary digital measurement software may collect data about the content that was viewed (e.g., which ad campaign, or which program episode), where the content was viewed (e.g., on which website or in which app), and general information about the device on which the content was viewed (e.g., tablet or smartphone, advertising identifier, IP address, operating system).

We include only non-identifiable or aggregated data in our insights, reports and analyses.
