As of May 24 2018

This Privacy Policy describes the ways in which TuneAfrique (“we,” “our,” or “us”) collects, uses, and shares information about you through the websites, mobile websites, and applications (collectively, the “Services”) that we may make available and that link to this Privacy Policy. By using the Services, you agree that we may process your information consistent with the Privacy Policy.

When you create an account with us, some of your profile information may be viewable by the public or other registered users. To see what information is available to other users and update your information, visit your Profile page on the Services.

What information do we collect?

The information that you provide us may include, but is not limited to, a) your name, address, contact information, username, email address, password, and other registration information; b) transaction-related information, such as payment or account information, licensing information, or information about when you make purchases or respond to offers; c) the content of the songs you post; d) information about co-owners of the songs you post, such as their names, addresses, and contact information, e) the tags you associate with songs; and f) any feedback you provide about songs or other users.

That information may include, but is not limited to, a) your Internet Protocol address, b) your browser type, your operating system, c) the pages or content you view or listen to on the Services, d) the pages you view immediately before and after you access the Services, e) unique identifiers associated with the devices you use to access the Services, f) the search terms you enter on the Services, g) the URL that referred you to the Services, and h) standard weblog information.

We and our service providers may collect this information using “cookies,” “web beacons,” and similar technologies. Cookies are small text files that the Services save on your computer or device and access when you return. Cookies can be used to recognize repeat visitors, facilitate your ongoing access to and use of the Services, and allow the Services to collect information about how the Services are used. If you do not want the Services to collect information through the use of cookies, most browsers allow you to deny or accept cookies. See your browser’s help menu for more information. Web beacons are small snippets of code embedded in webpages and are typically used to monitor activity on the webpage, collect information, or transfer information to services.

Information from Other Sources – We may collect information from third-party sources and combine it with the information described above. That information may include, but is not limited to, demographic information, information from performance rights organizations, and additional contact information.

You may be able to use third party login credentials (e.g., Facebook) to access the Services. When you do so, we may collect information from the third party associated with the login credentials. You may be able to control the information that the third party shares with us by changing the privacy settings for your account with that third party. By associating an account managed by a third party with your TuneAfrique account and authorizing TuneAfrique to have access to this information, you agree that TuneAfrique may collect, use, and share that information consistent with this Privacy Policy.
