Music Aficionado

Privacy Policy

Thank you for using Music Aficionado! We wrote this policy to help you understand what information we collect, how we use it, and what choices you have. Because we’re a software and internet company, some of the concepts below are a little technical, but we’ve tried our best to explain things in a simple and clear way. We welcome your questions and comments on this policy.

What information do we collect?

We collect information in two ways:

1. When you give it to us or give us permission to obtain it.

When you sign up for or use our products, you voluntarily give us certain information. This can include your name, profile photo, suggestions, reviews, recommendations, comments, likes, email address you used to sign up, and any other information you provide us. If you’re using Music Aficionado on your mobile device, you can also choose to provide us with location data.

You also may give us permission to access your information in other services. For example, you may link your Facebook or Twitter account to Music Aficionado, which allows us to obtain information from those accounts (e.g., your friends or contacts). The information we obtain from those services often depends on your settings or their privacy policies, so be sure to check what those are.

2. We also get technical information when you use our products, or use websites or apps that have Music Aficionado features.

These days, whenever you use a website, mobile application, or other Internet service, there’s certain information that almost always gets created and recorded automatically. The same is true when you use our products. Here are some of the types of information we collect:

How do we use the information we collect?

We use the information we collect to provide our products to you and make them better, develop new products, and protect Music Aficionado and our Members and users. For example, we may log how often people use two different versions of a product, which can help us understand which version is better.

We also use the information we collect to offer you customized content, including:

We also use the information we collect to:

The information we collect may be “personally identifiable” (meaning it can be used to specifically identify you as a unique person) or “non-personally identifiable” (meaning it can’t be used to specifically identify you). We use both types of information, and combinations of both types, as described above. We may use or store information wherever Music Aficionado does business, including countries outside your own.

What choices do you have about your information?

Our goal is to give you simple and meaningful choices over your information. If you have a Music Aficionado account, many of the choices you have on Music Aficionado are built directly in to the product or your account settings. For example, you can:

How do we share the information we collect?

Music Aficionado is a tool people use to suggest, recommend and share their musical passions and inspire others in the process. When you make suggestions, recommendations, reviews and comments, anyone can view them. You may also provide us with profile page information that that anyone can view. The other limited instances where we may share your personal information include:

We may also share aggregated or non-personally identifiable information with our partners or others. For example, we may tell a business using Music Aficionado how many people recommended something they shared, or the percentage of people who click on a suggestion or recommendation after viewing it.

Our Policy on Children’s Information

Music Aficionado is not directed to children under 13. If you learn that your minor child has provided us with personal information without your consent, please contact us.

How do we make changes to this policy?

We may change this policy from time to time, and if we do we’ll post any changes on this page. If you continue to use Music Aficionado after those changes are in effect, you agree to the revised policy. If the changes are significant, we may provide more prominent notice or obtain your consent as required by law.
