Policies

We're developing these as we go, and we're hoping you'll add your comments to this process. If RJ is going to last, we have to evolve in the ways our listeners want, and this is one more way for you to be part of RadioJustice.

This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for RadioJustice.org. This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by this website. It will notify you of the following:

  • What personally identifiable information is collected from you through the website, how it is used and with whom it may be shared.
  • What choices are available to you regarding the use of your data.
  • The security procedures in place to protect the misuse of your information.
  • How you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.

We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to ship an order.

Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about specials, new products or services, or changes to this privacy policy.

Your Access to and Control Over Information

You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our website:

  • See what data we have about you, if any.
  • Change/correct any data we have about you.
  • Have us delete any data we have about you.
  • Express any concern you have about our use of your data.

Security 

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the Web page.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

Orders 

We request information from you on our order form. To buy from us, you must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we'll use this information to contact you.

Some of our business partners may use cookies on our site (for example, advertisers). However, we have no access to or control over these cookies.

We use an outside credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond filling your order.

Surveys & Contests 

From time-to-time our site requests information via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.

We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.

In order to fulfill the Radio Justice L.A. Mission of creating an open communications and media hub connecting local organizations and individuals working in their communities to realize a just and equitable society, we must, at all times, honor and work to strengthen the trust placed in us by those communities. To that end, all RadioJustice L.A. staff, management, and contributors are expected to abide by the following guidelines when producing content for this platform.

It is the duty of RadioJustice L.A. to serve as a constructive critic of all segments of society. It should reasonably reflect, both in staffing and coverage, the diverse communities of Los Angeles. This platform should vigorously expose wrongdoing, duplicity and misuse of power, both public and private.

Always Be Accurate

  1. Support the open and civil exchange of views and ideas, even those you personally find repugnant.
  2. Be vigilant and courageous about holding those in power responsible for their actions: give voice to the voiceless.
  3. Take responsibility for the accuracy of your work. Verify the accuracy of information before releasing it. Use original sources when possible.
  4. Provide context. Do not oversimplify or misrepresent in promoting, previewing or summarizing a story.
  5. Gather, update, and correct information throughout a story.
  6. Always correct an error openly.
  7. Identify sources clearly. The public is entitled to as much information as possible to judge the reliability and motivations of sources.
  8. Diligently seek out subjects of news coverage to allow them to respond to criticism or wrongdoing.
  9. Provide access to source material when it is relevant and appropriate.
  10. Avoid undercover and surreptitious methods of gathering information, unless traditional open methods will not yield information valuable to the public.
  11. Avoid stereotyping. Journalists should examine the way their values and experiences may shape their reporting.
  12. Tell the story of the diversity and magnitude of human experience. Actively seek sources we rarely hear.
  13. NEVER deliberately distort facts or context.
  14. Never plagiarize; always attribute. 

Always Minimize Harm

  1. Balance the public's need to know against potential harm to individual human beings.
  2. Recognize that legal access to information differs from an ethical obligation to broadcast.
  3. Avoid pandering to lurid curiosity.
  4. Show compassion for those who may be affected by news coverage. Use heightened sensitivity when dealing with juveniles, victims of sex crimes, and sources and subjects who are inexperienced or unable to give consent.
  5. Balance the subjects right to a fair trial with the public's right to know. Consider the implications of identifying criminal suspects before they are charged.
  6. Realize that private people have a greater right to privacy than public figures and those who seek power, influence or attention. Weigh the consequences of disseminating private information.

Always Be Accountable and Transparent

  1. Respond quickly to questions about accuracy, clarity, and fairness.
  2. Acknowledge mistakes and correct them promptly and permanently. Explain corrections and clarification carefully and clearly.
  3. Explain ethical choices to the audience. Encourage a civil dialogue with the people about journalistic practices, coverage, and news content.
  4. Expose unethical conduct in journalism, including within RadioJustice.

Always Maintain Independence

  1. Avoid conflict of interest either real or perceived. Disclose unavoidable conflicts of interest.
  2. Deny favored treatment of advertisers, donors, or other special interests. Resist openly both internal and external pressure.
  3. Do not pay for access to news. Identify content provided by outside sources, whether paid or not.
  4. Shun news/advertising hybrids. Prominently label sponsored content.
