Additional California Privacy Disclosures

Annex 1 – Additional California Privacy Disclosures

Last updated, April 7 2023

"Any reference in these Terms to "Anchor" or the "Anchor Service" is a reference to the hosted experience of Spotify for Podcasters"

The California Consumer Privacy Act ("CCPA") gives California residents certain rights with respect to the processing of personal data (known as "personal information" under the CCPA).

This supplement provides additional privacy disclosures and details additional rights and should be read in conjunction with the Anchor Privacy Policy.

Personal Information Collected and Processed

Section 3 of the Anchor Privacy Policy sets forth the categories of personal information that we collect and process about you, a description of each category, and the sources from which we obtain each category.

Requests to Exercise Your Rights

RIGHT TO KNOW REQUEST - Under the CCPA, you have a right to request information about our collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information over the prior 12 months, and ask that we provide you with the following information:

  1. Categories of and specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you.
  2. Categories of sources from which we collect personal information.
  3. Purposes for collecting personal information.
  4. Categories of third parties with which we share personal information.
  5. Categories of personal information disclosed about you for a business purpose
  6. If applicable, categories of personal information sold about you and the categories of third parties to which the personal information was sold, by category or categories of personal information for each third party to which the personal information was sold.

To make a verifiable request for information about the personal information we have collected about you, please email us at

RIGHT TO DELETE REQUEST - You also have a right to request that we delete personal information, subject to certain exceptions. You may exercise your right to delete by emailing us at

HOUSEHOLD REQUESTS - We currently do not collect household data. If all the members of a household make a Right to Know or Right to Delete request, we will respond as if the requests are individual requests.

REQUESTS, GENERALLY - Please note, if you do not have a Anchor account we will not have enough information about you to verify your Right to Know and Right to Delete requests, as we do not keep sufficient information necessary to reidentify and link you to a prior visit to Anchor where data may have been collected. As such, we will be unable to verify and honor your requests. You may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information twice per 12-month period. We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your rights under the CCPA.

REQUESTS MADE THROUGH AGENTS - You may designate, in writing or through a power of attorney, an authorized agent to make requests on your behalf to exercise your rights. Before accepting such a request from an agent, we will require the agent to provide proof you have authorized it to act on your behalf, and we may need you to verify your identity directly with us.

Between January 1 and December 31, 2022 we received 4 global verifiable right to delete requests and 0 right to know requests. We complied 4 right to deletion requests and denied 0. The average response rate for the right to delete was 16 days.

Disclosures of Personal Information for a Business Purpose

In the preceding 12 months, we have disclosed certain data from the following categories of personal information to the categories of recipients listed in Section 5 of the Anchor Privacy Policy for one business purposes:

  • User Data
  • Usage Data
  • Payment and Purchase Data
  • Contest, Surveys and Sweepstakes Data

Sale of Personal Information

We do not sell personal information. We have taken substantial steps to identify and remediate any data sharing arrangements that could constitute a "sale" under the CCPA.
