We will not share your personal information with any third party, except as described in this Privacy Policy. There are circumstances where we may need to share some of the personal information we collect about you or which you provide to us - these circumstances are as follows:

  • Other Users: Any personal information in your public profile (other than your email address) will be accessible by other users of the Platform, who may view your profile information, listen to and comment on any of your public sounds, and send you messages. Similarly, if you comment on any sounds on the Platform, your comments will be available to all users of the Platform.
  • With your consent: We will disclose your personal information if you have explicitly agreed that we may do so. We will make this clear to you at the point at which we collect your information.
  • Service Providers: We use certain reputable third parties, some of whom may be located outside of the European Economic Area, to provide us with certain specialized services related to the Platform. These third parties will have access to certain information about you, but only where this is necessary in order for those third parties to provide their services to us. Where we transfer personal information to these third parties, we ask and require these third parties to implement appropriate organisational and technical security measures to protect against unauthorised disclosure of personal information, and only to process personal information in accordance with our instructions and to the extent necessary to provide their services to us.
  • Other networks and connected apps: If you choose to connect your InstrumentalBox® account to other apps or social networks such as Facebook or Twitter, you will be sharing certain information with these apps or networks. In the case of Facebook and Twitter, any new public sounds that you post or listen to on InstrumentalBox® or any new favourites will be shared to those networks and will be visible to your followers and friends on those networks. In the case of connected apps, you will need to provide the app developer with full access to your InstrumentalBox® account in order to upload and download sounds, or comment on, favourite or repost sounds from within the app. This will mean sharing your public information, plus access to your private sounds. InstrumentalBox is not responsible for these other apps or networks, so please make sure you only connect your account with apps or services that you trust.

 

  • As aggregated data: We may aggregate your personal data with similar data relating to other users of the Platform in order to create statistical information regarding the Platform and its use, which we may then share with third parties or make publicly available. However, none of this information would include any email address or other contact information, or anything that could be used to identify you individually, either online or in real life.
  • If required by law: We will disclose your personal information if we believe in good faith that we are permitted or required to do so by law, including in response to a court order, subpoena or other legal demand or request.
  • To protect our interests: We may disclose your personal information if we feel this is necessary in order to protect or defend our legitimate rights and interests, or those of our users, employees, directors or shareholders, and/or to ensure the safety and security of the Platform and/or the InstrumentalBox® community.
  • In the context of a business transfer: We may transfer your personal information to any person or company that acquires all or substantially all of the assets or business of InstrumentalBox, or on a merger of our business, or in the event of our insolvency.

 

In common with most websites, we use cookies and other standard Internet technologies to help us improve the Website and the Apps and Services we provide.
If you choose to use the Platform without blocking or disabling these cookies or opting out of other technologies you will indicate your consent to our use of these technologies and to our use (in accordance with this Privacy Policy) of any personal information that we collect using these technologies.

 

 

We do our best to give you as much choice as possible regarding the amount of personal information you provide to us, and the control you have over that information.
It is not necessary for you to provide us with any information 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 for an InstrumentalBox® account, you can control your personal information in the following ways.

 

If any of your sounds contain any personal information, you can control who has access to these sounds using the settings.

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 InstrumentalBox® 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 engines' caching processes are outside of InstrumentalBox’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.
Please note that deleting any third party apps to which your InstrumentalBox® account is connected, will not delete your InstrumentalBox® account. If you wish to delete your account, you will need to do so from the Settings on the Website. You will need to refer to the app provider’s terms of use and privacy policy to find out how to delete your data from that third party app.

 

As described above, most of the personal information you provide to us can be accessed and updated in the Settings page of your InstrumentalBox® account. If you wish to access, amend or delete any other personal information we hold about you, or if you have any objection to the processing of any information that we hold about you, please contact us at Info@Instrumentalbox.com, and make it to the attention of “Privacy Policy”.

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 information in order to satisfy our legal obligations, or where we have a legitimate reason for doing so.

InstrumentalBox is based in England, and your personal information is collected, stored, used and shared in accordance with European laws. However, from time to time, it may be necessary for us to transfer your personal data to the United States. You should be aware that privacy laws in the United States may not be equivalent to the laws in your country, and by using the Platform, you consent to the transfer, storage and processing of your personal information in the United States in accordance with this Privacy Policy and applicable law.

InstrumentalBox® is not intended for use by children. Anyone under the age of 13 is not permitted to use the Platform and must not attempt to register an account or submit any personal information to us. We do not knowingly collect any personal information from any person who is under the age of 13 or allow them to register an account. If it comes to our attention that we have collected personal data from a person under the age of 13, we will delete this information as quickly as possible. If you have reason to believe that we may have collected any such data, please notify us immediately at info@instrumentalbox.com

We may occasionally update this Privacy Policy. Any changes to our Privacy Policy will always be available here so that InstrumentalBox® users are always aware of what information we gather, and how we might use and share that information. Please be sure to check back here from time to time to ensure that you are aware of any changes to this Privacy Policy. Any material changes to this Privacy Policy will be communicated to registered users by a notification to their account and/or by posting a notice of the change on the Website.
