The Industrious Music Experience LLC’s Statement Regarding Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

We and our service providers use cookies to collect information. A cookie is a string of characters that can be written to a file on the user’s computer or device when the user visits a site, application, platform or service.

We use the following types of cookies for the purposes set out below:

Essential Cookies

These cookies are essential to provide you with services available through BeatsRX’s Services and to enable you to use some of their features. For example, these cookies allow BeatsRX to remember your registration information while you are logged in. Without these cookies, the services that you have asked for cannot be provided, and we only use these cookies to provide you with those services.

Functionality Cookies

These cookies allow our Services to remember choices you make when you use them, such as remembering your preferences and remembering your account details. The purpose of these cookies is to provide you with a more personal experience and to avoid you having to re-enter your preferences every time you visit BeatsRX’s Services.

Analytics and Performance Cookies

These cookies are used to collect information about traffic to our Services and how users interact with BeatsRX’s Services. The information collected includes the number of visitors to BeatsRX’s Services, the websites that referred visitors to BeatsRX’s Services, the pages that they visited on BeatsRX’s Services, what time of day they visited BeatsRX’s Services, whether they have visited BeatsRX’s Services before, and other similar information. We use this information to help operate BeatsRX’s Services more efficiently, to gather broad demographic information and to monitor the level of activity on BeatsRX’s Services.

Targeted and Sponsor Cookies

These cookies track your browsing habits or other information, such as location, to enable us to show sponsorship credits which are more likely to be of interest to you. These cookies use information about your browsing history to group you with other users who have similar interests. Based on that information, and with our permission, we and our sponsors can place cookies to enable us or our sponsors to show sponsorship credits and other messages that we think will be relevant to your interests while you are using third-party services.

Social Networking Service Cookies

These cookies are used when you share information using a social media sharing button or you link your account or engage with our content on or through a social networking service such as Facebook, Twitter or Google+. The social networking service will record that you have done this.

Third-Party Cookies

Third-party service providers that measure and analyze the use of BeatsRX’s Services for BeatsRX and serve sponsorship credits and other messages onto BeatsRX’s Services also use their own cookies. For example, BeatsRX’s third-party analytics service providers use cookies across multiple sites to collect visitor data (such as data related to age, gender and visitor interests). In addition, BeatsRX works with third-party service providers that may serve sponsorship credits or other messages to you on other websites after you visit BeatsRX’s Services. These third-party service providers use their own cookies to recognize you as a BeatsRX’s Services visitor and to serve you sponsorship credits or other messages on other websites that they believe you will find most relevant. This Privacy Policy does not cover the cookies used by these third-party service providers.

Additionally, we may use these technologies:

Metadata tags

BeatsRX, its sponsors and content producers may use ID3 tags or other metadata containers embedded in podcasts and other media files to collect listening data when these files are played using a compatible Internet-connected media player platform.

Pixel tags

BeatsRX and its service providers also may use pixel tags, alone or in conjunction with cookies. A pixel tag, also known as a web beacon or clear GIF, is an electronic image that can be used to recognize certain information on your device, such as cookies, the time and date a web page is viewed, or a description of where API content is placed. Cookies and these other tracking technologies enable us to assign a unique number to a user’s device, and relate information about a user’s use of BeatsRX’s Services to other information about the user, including personal information. These technologies also enable BeatsRX and its service providers to recognize you when you access BeatsRX’s Services using different computers, devices or browsers.

Flash technology

We also may use Flash cookies (which are also known as Flash LSOs) on BeatsRX’s Services to collect and store information about your use of BeatsRX’s Services. Unlike other cookies, Flash cookies cannot be removed or rejected via your browser settings. If you do not want Flash cookies stored on your device, you can adjust the settings of your Flash player to block Flash LSO storage using the tools contained in the Website Storage Settings Panel. You can also control Flash LSOs by going to the Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions. Please note that setting the Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash LSOs may reduce or impede the functionality of some Flash applications, including, potentially, Flash applications used in connection with certain of BeatsRX’s Services.

 

Google Analytics. To prevent data from being collected by Google Universal Analytics, use the opt-out browser add-on developed by Google for this purpose available here.

 

Interest-based messages. To opt out of receiving personalized or “interest-based” online sponsorship credits from our service providers and other participating companies, visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices. For information about controlling the collection of cross-app data from your mobile device for personalized or “interest-based” advertising or sponsorship credit purposes, visit http://youradchoices.com/appchoices. UK users, other European Economic Area (EEA) users and Swiss users can learn more and access opt-out tools from http://www.youronlinechoices.eu/. You also may adjust the settings on your device. For iOS mobile devices, go to “Settings” from your device’s home screen, scroll down to “Privacy”, select “Advertising”, and turn on “Limit Ad Tracking.” For Android mobile devices, go to “Google Settings” on your device, select “Ads”; and check the box labeled “Opt Out of Interest-Based Ads” or “Opt Out of Ads Personalization.” (These device settings options may change in the future or otherwise may differ for certain devices; consult your device manufacturer’s support literature for the most current information). Note that if you opt out, you may still receive the same number of sponsorship credits as before, but they may not be as relevant to your interests. Opting out of third-party interest-based sponsorship credits is a cookie-based process and will only affect the specific computer, device, and browser on which your opt-out choice is applied. If you subsequently delete your browser cookies, you will need to opt out again. For more information about opting out of interest-based messages, visit www.aboutads.info/choices.

 

Precise location information. If you consent to our collection of your precise device location through a BeatsRX mobile application, you can withdraw your consent at any time and prevent the further collection of your precise location by accessing the privacy settings of your mobile device and/or the settings of BeatsRX mobile application.

 

Do Not Track: We do not currently respond to browser do-not-track signals. Instead, we adhere to the standards set out in this Privacy Policy and offer the choices described above.

 

Security: We employ physical, electronic, and managerial safeguards in an effort to secure the information we collect. These safeguards vary based on the sensitivity of the information. Because no security system is impenetrable, however, we cannot guarantee the security of our databases or that information you supply will never be intercepted, accessed, or disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Policy. Because most email and mobile transmissions are not encrypted, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email, text messages, or other mobile transmissions.

 

Links to and from Other Sites and Services: Our Services contain links to other sites, applications, platforms and services operated by third parties whose privacy policies we don’t control and may differ significantly from ours. For instance, clicking or tapping on a sponsorship credit or some third-party logos on BeatsRX’s Services will take you to an entirely different site or service that may collect, use and share information in ways that BeatsRX would not. You also may access BeatsRX’s content and BeatsRX’s Services from a third-party site or service that may collect, use and share information in ways that BeatsRX would not. BeatsRX is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of these third-party services and we recommend that you familiarize yourself with the privacy policies of any such sites or services you visit or access.

 

Social Networking Services Sign-in and Sharing Tools: Our Services allow users to sign in to their BeatsRX accounts using their credentials on social networking services such as Facebook and Google+ (each an “SNS”). If you sign in to our Services through an SNS, we will receive your email address and certain profile information from such SNS in accordance with its privacy policy and your SNS account privacy settings. Any information that we collect from your SNS account may depend on the privacy settings you have selected with that SNS, so please consult the applicable SNS’s privacy and data policies to learn how to manage these settings. If you use tools on our Services that allow you to share stories or other content with your friends and followers on an SNS such as Facebook, Twitter, Flipboard, or Google+, that action and any information you share may be used by the SNS according to its own privacy policy.

 

Changes to This Privacy Policy: BeatsRX reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time. Any changes will be posted to this page, so please check back periodically. Your use of our Services constitutes consent to the Privacy Policy then in effect. Please read BeatsRX’s Terms of Use to understand additional terms and conditions that apply to your use of our Services.

 

For California Residents – Your California Privacy Rights: California residents can request and obtain from us once a year and free of charge a list of all third parties to which BeatsRX has disclosed certain information during the preceding calendar year for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. If you are a California resident and want such a list, please contact us. For all requests, you must put the statement “Your California Privacy Rights” in the message field of your request, as well as your name, street address, city, state, and zip code. Please note that we will not accept these requests by telephone, mail or fax, and we are not responsible for notices that are not labeled or sent properly, or that do not have complete information.  

 

Users Outside the United States: Our Services are controlled and operated within the United States. Any information we collect may be transferred to, and processed, stored, and accessed by, us and our service providers in the United States and in other jurisdictions where we or our service providers operate. These jurisdictions may have data privacy laws that may not be as protective as those of your home jurisdiction, and courts and other authorities may, in certain circumstances, be entitled to access information about you subject to such data privacy laws. By using BeatsRX’s Services, you agree to this transfer, processing, storage, and access of your information as described in this Privacy Policy.

Consent: We process personal data based on your consent to send personalized messages from BeatsRX (interest based messages or sponsorship), to collect precise location information and to send promotional emails. If you do not consent to the processing, you may still view BeatsRX content on https://www.beatsrx.com but you will not be able to access all of our Services. If you do grant consent, you can withdraw your consent at any time by unsubscribing from emails and as described in “Your Rights” below. Please note that all processing of your personal data will cease once you have withdrawn consent but this will not affect any personal data that has already been processed.

Retention

Your personal data is retained no longer than is reasonably necessary to perform the processing described in this Notice and in case of any legal claims or complaints, or as required by law.

Your Rights

Subject to exemptions under applicable law (which may include, depending on the circumstances, U.S. law protecting the rights to free speech and free press or EU law protecting the rights to freedom of expression or information, including processing for journalistic purposes), you have the following rights with respect to your personal data:

  • To request a copy of your personal data which BeatsRX holds;
  • To request that BeatsRX provide you access to and/or rectify personal data that is inaccurate or out of date;
  • To request erasure of your personal data where it is no longer necessary for BeatsRX to retain it;
  • If you have consented to processing, the right to withdraw consent at any time;
  • To request that the data controller provide you with your personal data and where possible, to transmit that data directly to another data controller, where applicable. This right of portability only applies where the processing is based on consent or is necessary for the performance of a contract and if BeatsRX processes the data by automated means;
  • To request a restriction on further processing where applicable;
  • The right to object to processing if the processing is based on legitimate interest, is for direct marketing, or is for scientific/historical research and statistics;
  • To lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.

You may exercise these rights by contacting BeatsRX, providing the email address you used to register with BeatsRX, and stating your specific request in writing. BeatsRX reserves the right to verify your identity and confirm your right to the information. The following options are also available:

Transfer of Data Abroad

Because BeatsRX operates the Services from the United States, your personal data may be transferred to the United States and/or to countries or territories outside the EEA or Switzerland not recognized by the European Commission as ensuring an adequate level of protection pursuant to the GDPR. Where required, data transfers will be made subject to the terms of the applicable EU Standard Contractual Clauses or with your consent. BeatsRX will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that personal data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Notice in respect of such transfer.

Security

BeatsRX employs physical, technical and organizational safeguards to ensure an appropriate level of security for personal data, taking into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of processing as well as the risk of varying likelihood and security for the rights and freedoms of natural persons.

Automated Decision Making and Analysis

BeatsRX and its data analytics and sponsorship vendors analyze user interactions with the Services to deliver personalized content to users and to serve personalized sponsorship messages. This includes tracking user preferences with respect to listening data, websites visited, and search terms in order to derive a user’s interests and preferences. The consequences of such processing for the data subject are that the data subject receives content that may be of interest to him or her, as well as email, online and in-app messages from BeatsRX that are geared towards the interests and preferences of the data subject.

Age Limits

You must be at least 18 years of age to submit any User Materials or Personal Data on or through the Services, create a public profile, or participate in any online contests. If your child is under age 18 and has provided personal data to the Services, please contact us at info@beatsrx.com for deletion of the data.

Further Processing

If BeatsRX plans to use personal data for a new purpose, it will update this Notice and communicate the changes to individuals before starting any new processing.
