1. What is Personal Data?
Personal data is information that can identify a specific individual, either by itself or in combination with other information that is linked or can be linked to that individual. For example, personal data includes an individual’s name, address, email, telephone number, date of birth, passport number, social security number, fingerprint, driver’s license number, credit or debit card number, and other information.
2. Your Privacy Rights at PlaySound?
At PlaySound, you will always have the right to know, access, correct, restrict the processing of, and delete your personal data. If you would like to obtain a copy of your personal data, you can make a request at firstname.lastname@example.org. There may be circumstances where we cannot grant your request, for example if you ask us to delete your transaction data and PlaySound is legally obligated to keep a record of that transaction to comply with the law. We may also decline to grant your request where doing so would restrict our legitimate use of data for anti-fraud and security purposes. Other reasons your privacy request may be denied are if it jeopardizes the privacy of others, appears to be done for an improper purpose, or would be extremely impractical. You have the right to request that your information not be used for our marketing purposes at any time, by contacting us at email@example.com. You may also contact us at this address to revise your personal information.
If you live in California, and you cannot access firstname.lastname@example.org, you may call 1 (833) PLAY-SND.
3. What Information Do We Collect?
We may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal information in connection with our websites, products and services (our “offerings”):
(a) Account Information. Your account details, including email address, password, and account status.
(b) Device Information. Information about the computer and other devices you use to access and/or use our offerings, such as your device serial number.

(f) Other Information You Provide to Us. Information such as the content of your
communications with PlaySound, including contacts concerning customer support, and contacts through our social media channels.
You are not required to provide the personal data that we may request. However, if you choose not to do so, in many cases we will be unable to provide you with our offerings or respond to requests you may have.
PlaySound may receive information about you from other individuals, from businesses or third parties acting at your direction or on your behalf, form our business and technology partners who help us provider our offerings and assist us in security and fraud prevention, and from other lawful sources. We may collect information about you from other individuals; for example, if that individual has sent you a gift card, contacted you through a PlaySound product, service, or forum, or shared content with you. We may also validate the information you provide (such as information to create a user account), with a third party for security, and for fraud prevention.
4. PlaySound’s Use of Personal Data
PlaySound may use personal data to provide our products and services, to process transactions with you, to communicate with you, for security and fraud prevention, and to comply with law. We may also use personal data for other purposes with your consent. PlaySound may rely on the fact that the processing is necessary to fulfill a contract with you, protect your vital interests or those of other persons, or to comply with law.
(a) Provide Our Services. PlaySound collects personal data necessary to provide our services, which may include personal data collected to improve our offerings, for development of new offerings, for internal purposes such as auditing or data analysis, or for troubleshooting. For example, if you access a song through Play Piano, we collect data on what songs you play in order to provide you with the content you requested and for the purpose of paying music royalties.
(b) Communicate With You. PlaySound may use your personal data to respond to communications, contact you regarding your account or transactions, provide other relevant information, or request information or feedback. We may also use your data to send important notices, such as changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this is important information about your relationship with PlaySound, you may not opt out of receiving these important notices.
(c) Security and Fraud Prevention. We may use your personal data for loss prevention (protection against theft of our products or services) and to prevent fraud, including the protection of PlaySound, its employees, staff, agents, and contractors, and for the benefit of all our users. We may also use your data in scanning uploaded content for potentially illegal content, including child sexual exploitation material.
(d) Personalization. If we provide a product or service that enables you to personalize your user products, services, or communications according to your preferences, then where such options are available PlaySound may use information that we collect so that we can offer you those personalized services or communications.
(e) Legal Compliance. We may use your data to comply with applicable law; for example, to fulfill tax or other reporting obligations, or to comply with a lawful government request.
PlaySound does not use algorithms or profiling to make any decision that would significantly affect you without the opportunity for review by a person. PlaySound also does not use or disclose sensitive personal data for any purposes that would require a user to exercise a right to limit processing according to California law.
5. PlaySound’s Sharing of Personal Data
We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate. We may also disclose information about you where there is a lawful basis for doing so, if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or to protect our operations or users, or in the event of a PlaySound reorganization, merger, or sale.
We may also disclose your personal data:
(a) In connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings;
(b) In order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights;
(c) To the purchaser (or prospective purchaser) of any business or asset which we are (or are contemplating) selling; and
(d) To any person or entity we reasonably believe may apply to a court or other competent authority for disclosure of that personal information where, in our opinion, such court or authority would be likely to order disclosure of that personal information.
PlaySound does not share personal data with third parties for their own marketing purposes. PlaySound does not sell your personal data including as “sale” is defined in Nevada and California. PlaySound also does not “share” your personal data as that term is defined under California law.
6. Protection of Personal Data
PlaySound takes the security of your personal data seriously. We use administrative, technical, and physical safeguards designed to prevent the loss, alteration, or misuse of your personal information. We store all the personal data you provide on our secure servers. All electronic communications you receive from us are encrypted using SSL technology.

8. International Data Transfers
