Ecoute.ma Privacy Policy

 

This Agreement was last modified on February the 8th, 2016.

 

Protecting your privacy is really important to us. With this in mind, we’re providing this Privacy Policy to explain our practices regarding the collection, use and disclosure of information that we receive through our Services. This Privacy Policy does not apply to any third-party websites, services or applications, even if they are accessible through our Services. Also, please note that, unless we define a term in this Privacy Policy, all capitalized terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings as in our Terms of Service. So, please make sure that you have read and understand our Terms of Service.

 

Revisions to this Privacy Policy

 

Any information that is collected via our Services is covered by the Privacy Policy in effect at the time such information is collected. We may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make any material changes to this Privacy Policy, we’ll notify you of those changes by posting them on the Services or by sending you an email or other notification, and we’ll update the “Last Updated Date” above to indicate when those changes will become effective.

 

Collection and Use of Information

 

Information Collected or Recieved from You

 

We collect information you provide directly to us. For example, we collect information when you participate in any interactive features of our services, fill out a form, request customer support, provide any contact or identifying information or otherwise communicate with us. The types of information we may collect include your name, email address, postal address, credit card information and other contact or identifying information you choose to provide.

 

Information We Collect Automatically When You Use the Services

 

Account holder Information

 

If you create an Account, we’ll extract from your Facebook Account or SoundCloud Account (as applicable) certain personal information that can be used to identify you, such as your name and email address (“Personally Identifiable Information” or “PII”), that the privacy settings that you have established on Facebook, SoundCloud, Spotify, Twitter, and Google permit us to access. In addition, if after you create an Account, you connect it with one of your Third Party Accounts, we’ll be able to access and collect certain information, including your PII, that your privacy settings on such Third Party Account permit us to access. We may also collect your gender, zip code and other information that is not considered PII because it cannot be used by itself to identify you. When you make Donations, we may collect your credit card information if you opt to pay using a credit card.

 

Visitor Information

 

If you don’t register for an Account, but join our waitlist for future features or subscribe to our mailing list for receiving updates from our blog, we’ll collect your PII, such as your name and email address. We may use your PII to contact you by email any time we release a new feature or update our blog.

 

 

Like many website owners and operators, we use automated data collection tools such as Cookies and Web Beacons to collect certain information.

 

“Cookies” are small text files that are placed on your hard drive by a Web server when you access our Services. We may use both session Cookies and persistent Cookies to identify that you’ve logged in to the Services and to tell us how and when you interact with our Services. We may also use Cookies to monitor aggregate usage and web traffic routing on our Services and to customize and improve our Services. Unlike persistent Cookies, session Cookies are deleted when you log off from the Services and close your browser. Although most browsers automatically accept Cookies, you can change your browser options to stop automatically accepting Cookies or to prompt you before accepting Cookies. Please note, however, that if you don’t accept Cookies, you may not be able to access all portions or features of the Services. Some third-party services providers that we engage may also place their own Cookies on your hard drive. Note that this Privacy Policy covers only our use of Cookies and does not include use of Cookies by such third parties.

 

“Web Beacons” (also known as Web bugs, pixel tags or clear GIFs) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that may be included on our Services for several purposes, including to deliver or communicate with Cookies, to track and measure the performance of our Services and to monitor how many visitors view our Services. Unlike Cookies, which are stored on the user’s hard drive, Web Beacons are typically embedded invisibly on web pages.

 

Information Related to Use of the Services

 

Our servers automatically record certain information about how a person uses our Services (we refer to this information as “Log Data”), including both Account holders and non-Account holders (either, a “User”). Log Data may include information such as a User’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, operating system, the pages or features of our Services to which a User browsed and the time spent on those pages or features, search terms, the links on our Services that a User clicked on, posts that a User liked, music that a User listened to and other statistics. We use Log Data to administer the Services and we analyze (and may engage third parties to analyze) Log Data to improve, customize and enhance our Services by expanding their features and functionality and tailoring them to our Users’ needs and preferences.

 

Location Information

 

When you create your Account using your Facebook Account or SoundCloud Account (as applicable) and when you connect your Account with your other Third Party Accounts, we may collect and store information about your location if your privacy settings on such Third Party Account and your Facebook Account, SoundCloud, Spotify, Twitter, and Google Account(s) permits us to access. We may use location information to improve and personalize our Services for you. By accessing and using our services, you consent to the processing and transfer of your information in and to the United States and other countries.

Information that We Share with Third Parties

 

We will not share any PII that we have collected from or regarding you except as described below:

 

Information Shared with the General Public or other Account Holders

 

When you create your Page using the Services, the general public will be able to view your username and photo uploaded by you on your Page and other Account holders may be able to access any PII or non-PII made available by you on your Page via the Services, such as your name and photo.

 

Information Shared with Our Services Providers

 

We may engage third-party services providers to work with us to administer and provide the Services. These third-party services providers have access to your PII only for the purpose of performing services on our behalf. For example we will share your credit card information with Stripe or any other Payment Services Providers.

 

Information Shared with Third Parties

 

We may share aggregated information and non-identifying information with third parties for industry research and analysis, demographic profiling and other similar purposes.

 

Information Disclosed in Connection with Business Transactions

 

Information that we collect from our users, including PII, is considered to be a business asset. Thus, if we are acquired by a third party as a result of a transaction such as a merger, acquisition or asset sale or if our assets are acquired by a third party in the event we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, some or all of our assets, including your PII, may be disclosed or transferred to a third party acquirer in connection with the transaction.

 

Information Disclosed for Our Protection and the Protection of Others

 

We cooperate with government and law enforcement officials or private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We may disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate: (i) to respond to claims, legal process (including subpoenas); (ii) to protect our property, rights and safety and the property, rights and safety of a third party or the public in general; and (iii) to stop any activity that we consider illegal, unethical or legally actionable activity.

 

Your Choices

 

We offer you choices regarding the collection, use and sharing of your PII and we’ll respect the choices you make. Please note that if you decide not to provide us with the PII that we request, you may not be able to access all of the features of the Services.

 

Opt-Out

 

We may periodically send you free e-mails that directly promote our Services. When you receive such promotional communications from us you will have the opportunity to “opt-out” by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in the e-mail you receive. We do need to send you certain communications regarding the Services and you will not be able to opt out of those communications – e.g., communications regarding updates to our Terms of Service or this Privacy Policy or information about billing.

 

Modifying Your Information

 

You can access and modify the PII associated with your profile on your Account by editing it through web forms available on the Services. If you want us to delete data related to your Account, please contact us at support@Ecoute.ma.io with your request. We’ll take steps to delete your information as soon we can, but some information may remain in archived/backup copies for our records or as otherwise required by law.

 

Responding to Do Not Track Signals

 

Our Site does not have the capability to respond to “Do Not Track” signals received from various web browsers. You may opt out for the collection of your social metrics using the features available on the Services.

 

The Security of Your Information

 

We take reasonable administrative and electronic measures designed to protect the information that we collect from or about you (including your PII) from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When you enter sensitive information on our forms, we encrypt this data using SSL or other technologies. Please be aware, however, that no method of transmitting information over the Internet or storing information is completely secure. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of any information.

 

Links to Other Sites

 

Our Services may contain links to websites and services that are owned or operated by third parties (each, a “Third-party Service”). Any information that you provide on or to a Third-party Service or that is collected by a Third-party Service is provided directly to the owner or operator of the Third-party Service and is subject to the owner’s or operator’s privacy policy. We’re not responsible for the content, privacy or security practices and policies of any Third-party Service. To protect your information we recommend that you carefully review the privacy policies of all Third-party Services that you access.

 

International Transfer

 

Your PII may be transferred to, and maintained on, computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. If you’re located outside the United States and choose to provide your PII to us, we may transfer your PII to the United States and process it there.

 

Our Policy Toward Children

 

Our Services are not directed to children under 13 and we do not knowingly collect PII from children under 13. If we learn that we have collected PII of a child under 13 we will take steps to delete such information from our files as soon as possible.
