Explain the way we use information that you share with us in order to build a great product and give you a great experience with it;
Ensure that you understand what information we collect with your permission, and what we do — and do not do — with it;
Hold us accountable for protecting your rights and your privacy under this policy.
All the information we collect is related to providing the service and its features.
Broadly speaking, there are two categories of information we collect: 1) information that we must have in order for you to use the Site; and 2) information that we can use to provide additional features and improved experiences if you choose to share that information.
The first category includes:
Registration information, including your name, address, and other information you provide when you sign up for the Website.
Broad, non-specific location, which we derive from your IP address. Our licenses to deliver music and other content to you are location-specific, so we need to know what country you’re in. This also enables us to make suggestions based on your general location, like concerts or performances.
The music you listen to and your interactions with the Service. This allows us to make recommendations to you and suggest relevant content. You can choose whether or not to share this information with your friends, followers, or the public.
Technical and sensor information necessary to operate the Site. This includes the type of browser and device you use, data from the touchscreen, and information from your device’s accelerometer and gyroscope sensors. This enables you to control the Site and allows us to do simple things like rotate videos and recommend music based on whether you’re sitting still or running.
The second category includes information that enables us to offer you additional features. We never receive any of the following information unless you expressly choose to share it with us. It’s as simple as that. Here are some examples:
Your specific location: We will never gather or use your specific device location without first getting your explicit permission. This information enables us to create collaborative listening experiences (only with others who have also given permission), and to provide even better recommendations about locally popular music, live venues, and concerts.
Your photos: We will only access images that you specifically choose, and we will never scan or import your photo library or camera roll. This allows you to choose individual pictures to change your profile picture or create cover art for a playlist. You can stop sharing photos and revoke access at any time.
Your contacts: We will never scan or import your contacts unless you ask us to. If you choose to do so, we will only use your contact information to help you find friends or contacts who use the Website.
Your microphone: We will never access or use your microphone unless you give us explicit permission. This could enable you to control the site with your voice, and you will always have the ability to disable access to the microphone.
