We generally collect two kinds of information through the Site: “personal information” about you which you provide to us, and “non-personal information” about you, your computer and technology, and your use of the Website, which alone doesn’t identify you personally.
We may also collect non-personal information from visitors and registered users of the Website. We may ask you to provide some of that information yourself, such as your musical preferences, your favorite artists, labels or genres, or your purchasing, listening and concert-going habits. Other technical, geographic and usage data and information we may collect directly, such as your browser type, ISP, operating system, log and Website usage data, IP address, zip code or location, the pages you visit and music or other content that you listen to or access while on the Website, websites you’ve visited upon entering or leaving the Website. Such information may be combined with your personal information.
If you contact or communicate with us or our representatives by e-mail or through the Website, or if you post any information on any forums, chat rooms, profile pages, feedback, customer service or other portions of the Website, we may collect, retain and use any information that you provide.
Our main use for the personal information we collect is to process your registration, purchases and payments, and to maintain your account on an ongoing basis. If you are a content supplier, we will also use your personal information to make accountings and share streaming data to you. If you enter any contests, promotions, giveaways or other optional programs, we will use the information you provide to facilitate and communicate with you about that particular contest or promotion, such as to notify you whether you’ve won, to deliver prizes. If you maintain a DJ profile page, we may use your personal information to communicate with you about that.
We may also use your personal and non-personal information to enhance your experience with the Website and our service, such as sending you emails and otherwise providing you with other information, content and material in which we think you may be interested; displaying content and ads according to your prior browsing history, preferences and location; fulfilling your orders; providing customer service and responding to your questions and comments; or contacting you about your account or about our and and partners’ promotions, contests, surveys, or other promotions.
We may use information learned from cookies to make sure that our content and emails are in a format that you can read, to analyze trends about which Websites, content and e-mails are popular and are being read and/or forwarded, to maintain a history of email activity, and to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of certain communications.
Your feedback and other information will also be used to evaluate and enhance our Website and service. For example, we may analyze the traffic and usage of our Site; the participation rate of our various promotions, offerings, e-mails, and other programs; and the popularity of our content, artists, and participating labels. We may also use that information for product development purposes, such as determining what other labels, artists, products and services our users are interested in, and for technical purposes such as monitoring the functionality of our servers and e-mail systems.
There are a number of different legal bases for processing personal data under the GDPR. Which one is applicable will depend on precisely how we are processing your personal data and for what purpose. Most commonly we will process your personal data where it is necessary:
For the performance of the agreement we have entered into with you, and in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into an agreement;
For the purposes of pursuing our legitimate interests;
In order to comply with a legal obligation to which we are subject; or
Because you have consented to the processing.
VIRPP makes no decisions based on automated processing (algorithms) that can have adverse consequences for you.
Sharing personal data by VIRPP with third parties
We may share the information that we collect, both personal and non-personal, with third parties such as advertisers, contest sponsors, promotional and marketing partners, and the labels, artists and others who provide our content or whose products or services we think may interest you. We may also share it with our current and future affiliated companies and business partners, and if we are involved in a merger, asset sale or other business reorganization, we may also share or transfer your personal and non-personal information to our successors-in-interest.
We may engage trusted third party service providers to perform functions and provide services to us, such as hosting and maintaining our servers and the Site, database storage and management, e-mail management, storage marketing, credit card processing, customer service and fulfilling orders for products and services you may purchase through the Site. We will likely share your personal information, and possibly some non-personal information, with these third parties to enable them to perform these services for us and for you.
We may share portions of our log file data, including IP addresses, for analytics purposes with third parties such as web analytics partners, application developers, and ad networks. If your IP address is shared, it may be used to estimate general location and other technographics such as connection speed, whether you have visited the Website in a shared location, and type of the device used to visit the Website. They may aggregate information about our advertising and what you see on the Website and then provide auditing, research and reporting for us and our advertisers.
We may also disclose personal and non-personal information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate in order to respond to claims, legal process (including subpoenas), to protect our rights and interests or those of a third party, the safety of the public or any person, to prevent or stop any illegal, unethical, or legally actionable activity, or to otherwise comply with applicable court orders, laws, rules and regulations.
