USES OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We will use the Personal Information you provide to:
to our third-party service providers (and in some cases, our affiliates) who provide services such as hosting, data analysis, payment processing, order fulfillment, infrastructure provision, IT services, customer service, email delivery, credit card processing, auditing and other similar services to enable them to provide such services;

use for other purposes that we may disclose to you when we request your information;
to allow you to send messages (for example, music clips or artist information) to a friend through the Website. By using such functionality, you are telling us that you are entitled to use and provide us with your friend’s name and email address; and

If you use any location-enabled products or services, you may be sending us location information. When you use a location-enabled service, we may collect and process information about your precise geographical location, such as GPS signals sent by a mobile device. We and our third party service providers and partners may use your device’s physical location to provide you with personalized location-based services, content and advertisements. In some instances, you may be permitted to allow or deny such uses of your device’s location, but if you choose to deny such uses, we may not be able to provide you with the applicable personalized services and content.
We may collect information about how you interact on the Website. For example, the Website may utilize analytic tools to help us better serve you through improved products, services, and revisions to the Website. This collected information may let us know which services and features you are using the most within the Website, as well as device type and hardware features, country and language of download, etc.
We may aggregate Personal Information so that the end-product does not personally identify you or any other user of the Website, for example, by using Personal Information to calculate the percentage of our users who like a particular artist.
We ask that you not send us, and you not disclose, any sensitive Personal Information (e.g., social security numbers, information related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or other beliefs, health, criminal background or trade union membership) on or through the Website or otherwise to us.
To modify or delete the Personal Information you have provided to us, please log in and update your profile. We may retain certain information as required by law or for necessary business purposes.
On request, we will give you a copy of all the Personal Information about you that we hold. This information is subject to a fee not exceeding the prescribed fee permitted by law.
We seek to use reasonable physical, technical and administrative measures to protect Personal Information under our control. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or data security system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
