We take the private nature of your personal information very seriously, and are committed to protecting it. To do that, we’ve set up procedures to ensure that your information is handled responsibly and in accordance with applicable data protection and privacy laws. We’re grateful for your trust, and we’ll act that way.
We collect information two ways: Information we get from your use of the network, and information you provide to us directly.
Information we get from your use of the network is primarily non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers, servers, and services like Google Analytics typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the time of each visit. Other non-identifying information that we might have access to includes how you use the service (e.g., search queries), your approximate location, cookies, etc.
We collect this non-personally identifying information in order to better understand how visitors use the service and where possible, to improve their experience. For instance, we may monitor the most common content on the network to help identify spam. In some cases, we may publicly display information that is not personally identifying in the aggregate, (e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the network,) or may provide it to third parties.
When you use the network, we also collect potentially personally identifying information in the form of Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. But we don’t use that information to identify you, and we handle and disclose these addresses in the same way we handle other potentially personally identifying information as described below.
How we process data provided by Facebook.
Currently we leverage information provided by Facebook Login functionality such as public profile and email. Combination of such information used to create a digital persona on the website during Facebook login flow. Users can alter that persona by clicking on their name on the top menu and choosing Settings, then they can change information. We will continue maintaining linkage between application specific Facebook user identifier and website user identifier. This is necessary to ensure that users can signin to their profile even they had altered the initial information. This functionality enables users to represent themselves differently from Facebook and ensure that they can protect their original identity. Because our website is designed for artists they could have multiple alter-ego by creating various author names and using those. That content is user-generated and users are required to be responsible and act within applicable law and regulations. If user will come to violation of the law their content will be removed from public access and might be completely removed from the database if required by the law. Some information might persists in backups but eventually will be destroyed because backups are performed on a rolling basis. Due to the nature of the website design user can revoke public access to any content that was produced.
If user wants to request data deletion it is necessary to send request for data removal to support team by writing to [email protected] In this case support team may request verification that account actually belongs to a requester and once validated information will be removed in a timely manner.
