Grounds for Data Collection
You are not legally required to provide us with your “Personal Data” (meaning any information which may potentially allow your identification with reasonable means), but without it we might not be able to provide you with the full range of, or the best experience while using our website(s), mobile application(s) or any other affiliated service (together, the “Services”).
Processing of Personal Data is necessary for the performance of our contractual obligations towards you, for provision and operation of our Services, to protect our legitimate interests and for compliance with legal and regulatory obligations to which we are subject.
Our legal basis for collecting and using your Personal Data will depend on the particular purpose for which your data is being processed, however, we generally use the following:
- Performance of a contract – We will use this basis for processing necessary to make the Services, including support services, available to you, and to send you service communications.
- Consent – In limited cases (where you choose to sign up to receive direct marketing emails, and where you accept cookies on our Services) we will process your Personal Data based on your consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us using the details provided below.
- Legitimate interests – We will process your Personal Data based on our legitimate interests in maintaining and improving our Services, such as for the purpose of understanding how our Services are used and improving them, our customer service and support operations, and protecting and securing our users, ourselves and our Services.
- Compliance with a legal obligation - In limited cases we may process your Personal Data where we need to do so to comply with a legal obligation e.g. which is set out in an applicable law, or if we receive an order from a court or regulatory body.
What type of data we collect?
In the course of using the Service, we may ask you to provide us with certain Personal Data to provide and improve the Service, to contact or identify you, to enable you to access certain parts of the Service, and as otherwise indicated in this Policy. We collect the following Personal Data about you:
- Registration information – when you sign up to use our Services, we will collect your name, your mailing address, your email address, your home and work telephone number, information about your company and your position, and similar contact details. We will also process your payment details via our payment processing providers. However, we do not retain your payment information but only a pseudonymized “token” thereof, or a reduced amount of such payment details which is received from our payment processing providers.
- Information received from you – you may choose to provide us Personal Data voluntarily, such as when you contact us (via a contact form on our Services, e-mail or any other channel, including any support services), or when you provide us with your e-mail address when you sign-up to receive our newsletter. When you participate in one of our surveys, we may also collect additional profile information. You may provide us with the URL of your media or podcast channels/profiles, and the URL of the videos you created with our Assets and uploaded to other platforms (e.g. Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, TikTok, Twitch).
- When using our Services – our server will collect your IP-address, and information about your general location (such as city and country).
- Information from third parties – our Services allows registration using social media accounts such as Facebook or Google. If you choose to connect your Artlist account with your social media account, we will receive information from your social media account such as your profile name, profile picture and additional information depending on such social media platforms and your privacy settings on it. We may also receive from our business partners certain information, such as your contact details (name, phone, email) as well as details pertaining to your company, your job description, etc’.
- Usage Data – We collect information about how you use our software and plugins, including analytical information of your usage of the software/plugins. Usage Data includes session data, account ID, data about your device and hardware, location data, registered/whitelisted social media channels and videos and data about your interactions and engagement with our website and software.
- Digital rights management data - information on content published online and that includes our music, such as data from YouTube’s ContentID, including video and channel data associated with such content
We may also collect, use and share aggregated data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated data may be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal data in law as this data does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your Usage Data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific software feature. However, if we combine or connect aggregated data with your personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal data which will be used in accordance with this privacy notice.
We also collect data about the use of our Service and the characteristics and activities of users, in order to operate it and improve it. We may collect the following non-Personal Data:
- Technical information – when someone visits, interacts with or uses our Services, including by e-mail or text messages sent to them by us or our Services, we may collect or generate technical data about them. This includes data such as visits, the browser you are using and its display settings, your operating system, device type, session start/stop time, referral URL, time zone, network connection type (e.g., Wi-Fi, cellular), and cookie information. We collect or generate such data either independently or with the help of third party services, including through the use of “cookies” and other tracking technologies. We do not use such data to learn a person’s true identity or contact details, but mostly to have a better understanding on how our users typically use and engage with our Services.
If we combine Personal Data with non-Personal Data, the combined data will be treated as Personal Data. Further Personal Data will only be stored and processed if you voluntarily provide it to us, e.g. through a contact form.
When you visit or access our Services we use (and authorize 3rd parties to use) pixels, cookies, events and other technologies (collectively, "Tracking Technologies"). Those allow us to automatically collect information about you, your device and your online behavior, in order to enhance your navigation in our Services, improve our Services’ performance, perform analytics and customize your experience. We store Tracking Technologies when you visit or access our Services. These are called "First Party Tracking Technologies". In addition, Tracking Technologies are stored by other third parties (for example our analytics service providers, business partners and advertisers) – these are called "Third Party Tracking Technologies". Both types of Tracking Technologies may be stored either for the duration of your visit on our Services or for repeat visits.
