- “Personal data” is a phrase that has a very specific meaning under the GDPR. Whenever we use the phrases “personal data”, “information”, or “information about you”, in this Policy, we are referring to “personal data” as it is defined in the GDPR.
INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT FROM YOU
- We will collect and process the following data about you:
- Information you give us. This is information about you that you give us by filling in forms on our site or by corresponding or communicating with us by phone, e-mail or otherwise. It includes information you provide when you register to use our site, subscribe to our services, search our site, upload or post content or send messages on our site, participate in discussion boards or other social media functions on our site, and when you report a problem with our site. The information you give us may include your name, location, e-mail address, personal description and/or image, and preferred genres of music.
- Information we collect about you. With regard to each of your visits to our site we will automatically collect the following information:
- technical information, including the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet, your login information, browser type and version, time zone setting, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform;
- information about your visit, including the full Uniform Resource Locators (URL), clickstream to, through and from our site (including date and time), page response times, download errors, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks, and mouse-overs), methods used to browse away from the page and any email address used to contact our help desk.
- Information we receive from other sources. This is information we may receive about you if you use any of the other websites we operate or other services we provide (in which case we will have informed you when we collected that data that we were doing so, and as to how we were going to process it, and for what purposes, and will have obtained your consent to do so), or from other third parties who could pass information about you to us (in which case, if they collected the information from you, then they should have informed you at the time as to what information they were collecting, how they were going to process it, and for what purposes, and should have obtained your consent to do so). We currently anticipate that from time to time we may need to work closely with such third parties (including, for example, business partners, sub-contractors in technical services, analytics providers, and search information providers), and it is possible that we may receive such information from them. If we do, then we will treat it in the same way as any other information about you that you give to us directly or that we collect from you through your use of our site.
USES THAT WE MAY MAKE OF INFORMATION
- We use information held about you in the following ways:
- Information you give to us. We will use this information:
- to carry out our obligations to you that may arise under or from any agreements that we may enter into with you;
- to communicate with you from time to time (for example, to notify you about changes to our site or services and/or to your user account), and to provide you with any information and/or services that you may request from us;
- to help us to assist you to use our site and services, and to help us to ensure that content from our site is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer or mobile device.
