We have a pretty simple approach to data protection and privacy, which can be summarized as follows:
Weâ€™ve designed the Website to give you control over the information you publish and share using traxtor? and other sites and services to which you connect your traxtor? account. Please take full advantage of these tools and make sure you only share what you want to share.
We collect information about you from various sources:
You donâ€™t need to provide us with any personal data in order to visit the Website. However, certain Services do require that you register for a traxtor? account and, by doing so, you will provide us with certain information:
None of this profile information is mandatory, and any information you do provide may be deleted, edited, changed or amended by you at any time. For more information, contact us at: Control section below.
There is certain information that we collect automatically as the result of your use of the Platform, or through the use of web analytics services as described in our Cookies Policy. This information includes but is not limited to:
traxtor allows you to sign up and log in using your Facebook account. If you sign up using Facebook, Facebook will ask your permission to share certain information from your Facebook account with traxtor. This includes your first name, last name, email address in order for us to verify your identity and gender, general location, a link to your Facebook profile, your timezone, birthday, profile picture, your â€œlikesâ€ and your list of friends.
If you sign up to traxtor? using Facebook, your traxtor? account will be connected automatically to your Facebook account, and information regarding your activity on traxtor?, specifically any new public sounds that you post on traxtor? and any new favourites, will be shared with Facebook and will be published in your timeline and your Facebook friendsâ€™ newsfeeds. If you do not wish to share your traxtor? activity with your Facebook friends, you can control this from the Settings page on the Website â€“ for more information, contact us at: Control section below. If you signed up using Facebook by mistake, you can delete your account from the Account page within your Settings at any time, or you can contact us via our Help Center
We use the information that we collect about you for the following purposes:
Use of and interaction with the Platform:
Improving and customizing the Platform and advertising:
For other purposes, provided we disclose this to you at the relevant time, and provided that you agree to the proposed use of your personal data.
Ads displayed to you are in some cases provided by third parties. These may and as far as allowed by your settings or your device, use information about your visit and interaction with the Platform in order to show you personalized ads of products and services that may be of interest to you. Personal information such as your name or email address will not be shared with these.
We do our best to give you as much choice as possible regarding the amount of information you provide to us, and the control you have over that information.
It is not necessary for you to provide us with any personal data in order to visit the Website, although certain information will be collected automatically by virtue of your visit (as described above). However, if you do decide to register a traxtor? account, you can control your information in the following ways.
When you are signed into your account, you can access your Settings by clicking on the three-dots-tab at the top right of the screen, and selecting Settings from the drop down menu.
From the Notifications tab you can tell us:
You can also turn off email notifications from the Notifications tab within your Settings. This will immediately disable all email notifications, other than essential account notifications such as important service updates, reports of copyright infringement and other essential information relating to your account and your use of the Platform.
It is also possible to unsubscribe from email newsletters and notifications (other than essential account notifications) at any time by clicking on the link at the end of each email.
You can add additional or alternative email addresses that you may wish us to use to communicate with you in your Account Settings tab.
The Connections tab within your Settings on the Website enables you to control the information you share with other networks and applications. As well as selecting those of your social networks you wish to share to, you can also control access to other services and applications to which you have connected your traxtor? account.
If you sign up for traxtor? using your Facebook or Google+ account, your traxtor? account and your Facebook or Google+ account respectively will be connected automatically. Information regarding the public sounds that you post, listen or favourite on traxtor?, will be shared with the connected Facebook or Google+ account. Content that you share with Facebook will appear on your timeline and in your Facebook friendsâ€™ newsfeeds. Content you share with Google will be seen by the people from your Google+ circles when they visit your Google+ profile, make relevant Google searches, on Google-served ads, and the services selected in your Google account settings. If you do not want this information shared with Facebook or Google, please change your Settings.
If any of your sounds contain any personal data or any other information which you would not like to share, you can control who has access to these sounds using the settings in the sound page (click on the pencil icon in the waveform player for the relevant sounds). By setting your sounds to â€œprivateâ€, rather than â€œpublicâ€, you can limit who has access to your sounds.
traxtor? has an open API, which allows third party developers to build some really cool apps as an extension of the Platform. If you would prefer that your sounds are not made available to third party app developers, you can disable API access within the sound page for each of the sounds that you upload. Click on the pencil icon in the waveform player, and uncheck the â€œApps enabledâ€ box at the bottom of the page. Please note that your public profile information will still be accessible, but this does not include anything that is not publicly available on the Website.
You can opt out of the collection of your information when interacting with the Platform for purposes of customizing the Platform or personalized advertisement at any time for the future by checking the Anonymous Browsing box in the Account tab within your Settings on the Website. Please keep in mind that this may also have a substantial impact on your listening experience on the Platform (e.g. with regard to personalized recommendations for sounds to listen to or creator discovery). We may also use third party services using cookies or similar technologies showing you personalized ads on our behalf. Please see our Cookies Policy for how to opt-out of those.
Please be aware that even if you opt out of interest-based ads, you may still see ads, which likely are not as appealing to you.
You can use the settings within your iOS device or within the Android app to opt-out of analytics tracking and bug reporting. For the opt-out, if you are using our iOS app, go to the settings of your iOS device and open the traxtor? tab. With an Android device you need to open the traxtor? app and open the basic settings tab within. From there you can simply disable analytics and/or bug reporting to stop any analytics data or bug reporting information being sent from the app. Further information is available in our Cookies Policy.
You can delete your account from the Account page within your Settings on the Website at any time. Please bear in mind that, if you delete your account, all data associated with your account, including the sounds that you have uploaded and the usage data associated with those sounds, will be deleted and may not be recoverable. You are therefore advised to copy or back up all content uploaded to your account before you delete your account.
Even if you delete your traxtor? account, it is possible that your information may still show up in some internet search results for a short while afterwards, if the search engine maintains a temporary cache of web pages. Search enginesâ€™ caching processes are outside of traxtorâ€™s control and therefore we cannot be responsible for any information that remains cached by search engines after that information has been removed from the Platform.
As described above, most of the personal data and other information you provide to us can be accessed and updated in the Settings page of your traxtor? account. If you wish to access, amend or delete any other personal data we hold about you, or if you have any objection to the processing of any personal data that we hold about you, please contact us via our Help Center , or the address provided below.
If you ask us to delete your account (either via the Settings page or by email), we will do so within a reasonable period of time, but we may need to retain some of your personal data in order to satisfy our legal obligations, or where we have a legitimate reason for doing so.
United States usersâ€™ data may be processed by traxtor Limited on traxtor Inc.â€™s behalf.
