COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

Company may collect and process “personal information” (including without limitation electronic information that could be used to contact you, such as full name, postal address, user name and password, phone number or e-mail address, submitted user content and hashed password and geolocation data) or “demographic and usage information” (i.e. information that you submit, or that we collect through cookies or similar tracking technologies, that is necessary for the proper functioning of our Service, such as the date regarding the start and end and the extent of your usage of the Service, or that relates to your personal interests and preferences), in connection with the Service.  

For example, when you register for an account, we collect your full name, email address and login credentials. When you communicate with us or other users through the Websites and Services or otherwise communicate with us by email, we collect information about the communication and any other information you provide in your response.

By using the Service, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country. Company makes no representation or warranty with respect to any duty to permanently store any personal information you may provide. 

In addition, third-parties may use cookies and similar tracking technologies in connection with our Sites and Service, which may include the collection of information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services. The use of this functionality may involve the third-party site providing information to us. We may not control those tracking technologies, and these third-party practices are not subject to our Privacy Policy. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of those third parties carefully. For example, we may provide links on the Site to facilitate your sending a communication from the Site, or we may use third parties to facilitate your interacting with social media sites. 

More details on how and what data we collect can be found from our GDPR Information. 

USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

Company uses your personal information to identify you and, in some cases, to improve and customize the content you see on the Website. Your personal information may also be used by Company for market research, project planning, troubleshooting problems, detecting and protecting against error, fraud or other criminal activity, to enforce the Terms of Use or any applicable Rules, for other internal purposes, and as otherwise described to you at the time of collection. Company will obtain your consent for any use of your personal information beyond those set forth in this Privacy Policy and the original uses for which you provided your consent. 

Company may use personal information about you to provide and maintain the Website, analyze Website usage, improve or customize Company’s Services and grow our business, customize the Website’s content, and as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy. Unless you specifically opt out, you also agree that Company may use your personal information to contact you and deliver information to you that, in some cases, is targeted to your interests, such as targeted banner advertisements, administrative notices, product offerings, and communications relevant to your use of the Website or the Services. You shall receive this information, unless you specifically opt out in applicable circumstances. 

Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose online (on discussion boards, in messages and chat areas, within your public profile page, etc.) becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by others. Your username (not your email address) may be displayed to other Users when you upload content or send messages through the Website. Any content that you submit to the Website may be redistributed through the Internet and other media channels, and may be viewed by the general public. 

You have the right to direct our Company not to sell your personal information to third parties. If you wish to exercise this right, you may do that by sending us an email at dpo@familyinmusic.com. 

DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

The following describes some of the ways that your personal information may be disclosed in the normal scope of business to provide you with the Services: Business Partners. Company may share personal information with its business partners to provide, maintain and improve the Website and Services. For example, when one or more of our business partners co-sponsor a service, promotion and/or contest, we may share some or all of the information collected in connection with such service, promotion or contest with the co-sponsor(s). 

Advertisers. Company may aggregate personal information and disclose such information in a non-personally identifiable manner to advertisers and other third parties for their marketing and promotional purposes. However, in these situations, Company does not disclose to these entities any information that could be used to identify you personally without your explicit consent. We also partner with third parties (such as Facebook) who use cookies and similar tracking technologies to serve targeted advertising/content to you via the relevant third-party platform based on your profile/interests (also known as “interest-based advertising”). Your information is used by the third-party platform provider to identify your account and serve advertisements to you. While we will not share information that identifies you by name with unaffiliated third parties for their own use, such third parties may be able to identify you with sufficient data from other sources. 

External Service Providers. There are a number of separate services offered by third parties that Company refers to as external service providers that may be complementary to your use of the Website or the Services. If you choose to use these separate services, disclose information to the external service providers, and/or grant them permission to collect information about you, then their use of your information is governed by their privacy policy. With your consent, and for your convenience, Company may provide some of your personal information to an external service provider offering such services. To prevent Company’s disclosure of your personally identifiable information to an external service provider, you can decline such consent or simply not use their services. Because Company does not control the privacy practices of these third parties, you should evaluate their practices before deciding to use their services. 

Internal Service Providers. Company may use third parties that Company refers to as internal service providers to facilitate or outsource one or more aspects of Company’s business, products and Services that Company provides to you and, therefore, Company may provide some of your personal information directly to these internal service providers (e.g. customer care). In some instances, the internal service provider may collect information directly from you. If you provide additional information to an internal service provider directly, then their use of your personally identifiable information is governed by their applicable privacy policy. 

Other Third Party Disclosures. Company may disclose your personal information to third parties for the following purposes:  
(a) to measure and analyze how you engage with media,  
(b) to create research insights, reports and analyses, including the composition of the audience that viewed certain content or about the effectiveness of an advertising campaign, 
(c) to create categories based on demographics, interests and preferences in order to facilitate interest-based advertising. This information may be shared at the individual level, as compared to in aggregate with other users. 

Google Analytics. Company may use third-party Service Providers to monitor and analyze the use of our Website: Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our Services. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network. For more information on the privacy practices of Google, please visit the Google Privacy Terms web page: http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/. 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Company reserves the right, and you authorize Company, to share or disclose your personal information, including, without limitation, any content, records or electronic communications of any kind, when Company determines, in its sole discretion, that the disclosure of your personally identifiable information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against you if: 
· you are or may be violating the Terms of Use, this Privacy Policy or any applicable Rules; 
· you are interfering with Company’s or a third party’s rights or property; 
· you are violating any applicable law, rule or regulation; 
· necessary or required by any applicable law, rule or regulation;
and/or 
· requested by governmental authorities in the event of any investigation, act of terrorism or instance of local, regional or national emergency. 

In addition, Company cannot ensure that all of your private communications and other personal information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy Policy. By way of example, without limiting the foregoing, Company may be forced to disclose personal information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access your transmissions or communications. 

Therefore, although Company uses industry standard practices to protect your privacy, Company does not promise, and you should not expect, that your personally identifiable information or private communications will always remain private. However, Company shall use reasonable commercial and legal efforts to protect its users’ information and to maintain the privacy and anonymity of Members and users. 

In the event of a merger, acquisition, sale of substantially all of its assets or change of control of Company, personal information collected by Company about you will be considered a business asset and will be transferred to the applicable new entity.
