Welcome to the website ReverbNation.com (the "Site") and related platforms, products, and services available on or from the Site (the "Services") are owned and operated by eMinor Incorporated d/b/a ReverbNation (together with its affiliates, successors, and assigns hereinafter referred to as "our", "we", "us", or "ReverbNation").
The Site is a music-oriented content and information website that connects musical artists with venues, festivals, brands, publishers, labels, and fans. Registered users may post music, sound recordings, musical works, compositions, videos, photographs, pictures, graphics, names, likeness, images, biographical information, and other information or materials owned and/or created by them and can view each other's profiles ("Profiles"), communicate with each other, share photos, post comments, and describe their interests. Registered users can change their Profile information at any time and can control how other users and the Site communicates with them.
When users register with the Site, ReverbNation collects user-submitted personal information such as name, mailing address, email address, telephone number and age. ReverbNation uses that information to authenticate users and to send notifications to users relating to, without limitation, the Services and other opportunities.
We only collect, use, share, store, or otherwise process your PII when we have an appropriate basis. For example, we may process your PII as necessary to provide services that are subject to terms you have accepted, such as our General Terms and Conditions. We may process your personal data when necessary to comply with legal obligations, or for purposes of pursuing legitimate interests (such as providing products and services, improving the services and the Site, performing internal analytics, preventing fraud, enforcing legal claims, and security purposes) if doing so is consistent with your rights and appropriate to the context.
As is standard practice on many corporate websites, ReverbNation also logs other information, including IP address, profile information, aggregate user data, and browser type, from the Site. This data is used to improve the website services, to analyze trends, to administer the Site, to track users' movements around the Site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. ReverbNation will not use the information collected to market directly to that person. This information may be shared with third-parties to provide more relevant services and advertisements to users. User IP addresses are recorded for security and monitoring purposes.
In addition, ReverbNation uses pixel tags - tiny graphic images - to tell us what parts of the Site have been visited or to measure the effectiveness of searches customers perform on the Site. Pixel tags also enable us to send email messages in a format that customers can read. And they tell us whether emails have been opened to assure that we are only sending messages that are of interest to our users.
User Profile information, including users’ pictures and names, is displayed to people in order to facilitate user interaction in the ReverbNation social networking community.
ReverbNation may also use a user’s email address to send updates, a newsletter or news regarding the Services. ReverbNation may send email messages which use a "click-through URL" linked to content on the Site. When a user clicks one of these URLs, they pass through our web server before arriving at the destination web page. ReverbNation tracks this click-through data to help determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked simply avoid clicking text or graphic links in the email.
From time to time, ReverbNation or a partner may sponsor an opportunity, promotion, or contest through the Site. Users may be asked to provide PII including name, email address or home address or to answer questions in order to participate. ReverbNation may transfer PII to certain advertising partners that you have explicitly requested to receive information from. It will be clear at the point of collection who is collecting the PII and whose privacy statement will apply.
ReverbNation may also collect information for market research purposes to gain a better understanding of our customers and thus provide more valuable service. ReverbNation also collects information regarding customer activities on our Site, and on related websites. This helps us to determine how best to provide useful information to customers and to understand which parts of our websites and Internet services are of most interest to them.
In cases where you use a mobile device to access our sites or use or applications, we may receive information about the location of your device. We may use this information to develop, deliver, and improve our products, services, and other offerings.
We will retain your PII for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
Website Cookie Preference Tool: You can exercise preferences about what cookies are served on our Sites by visiting our cookie settings preference center, available here: Cookie Settings.
Our Site does not respond to "do-not-track" settings in users' web browsers at this time. However, there are various ways to opt out of interest-based advertising, such as TRUSTe’s Ad Choices, the Network Advertising Initiative’s Consumer Opt-Out Page, or you can also visit Google's Ad Settings to manage the ads Google serves.
Please be aware that whenever you voluntarily post public information to Chat Rooms, Profiles, Message Boards or any other Public Forum, that information can be accessed by the public and can in turn be used by those people to send you unsolicited communications. We are not responsible for the PII you choose to submit and make publicly available on the Site. Please think before you post any PII online.
Our social features promote and facilitate interaction among our application users, such as by allowing our users to promote a show or band. In order to protect the application users’ privacy, we will only show you this information if they previously opted in to use the same social feature you are using.
The information you allow ReverbNation to access varies by application and SNS, and it is affected by the privacy settings you and your friends establish at the SNS. You can find out more about these settings at the SNS where you access our applications.
If you choose (opt in) to use one of our social features, you may be asked to log into a SNS, such as Facebook, through our application. The SNS may provide ReverbNation with the following information:
We link this data to a user ID that ReverbNation assigns to you. When a SNS sends us the user IDs and profile pictures of your friends, we check to see which of your friends also have chosen to use the same ReverbNation social feature you selected. If your friends have not chosen to use our social features, we do not retain their user IDs or other information about them. If your friends have opted in to use the same social feature you selected, then we link that information to you so that you can enjoy ReverbNation’s social features with those friends. We will update the list of friends linked to your user ID each time you log back into our social feature.
While using a ReverbNation social feature, you may be able to see your friends’ profile pictures and their most recent use of the feature. Similarly, when your friends are using the feature, they may be able to see your profile picture and your most recent use of the feature. You may be able to invite your friends to join you in a social feature, such as by posting a message to your Facebook wall. You are never required to use ReverbNation’s social features in order to use our applications.
ReverbNation registered users may access or modify any of the PII contained in their Profile at any time by logging into their account and accessing features such as Edit Profile and Account Info.
Users who no longer wish to receive promotional messages or updates may choose not to by opting-out. To opt-out, simply log-in to your user Account, and click the appropriate box to disable the notification emails you no longer wish to receive. All notification emails and ReverbNation newsletters also include the above instructions for opting-out of those communications in the future. Note that users who have opted-out of promotional messages or updates may still receive email messages from ReverbNation where necessary to provide a service you have requested or where necessary to inform you of critical information relating to your use of the Site.
ReverbNation user accounts are secured by user-created passwords. ReverbNation takes precautions to ensure that account information is kept private. ReverbNation uses reasonable measures such as encryption to protect private information that is stored within our database against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction, and we restrict access to such private information to those employees who need access to perform their job functions, such as our customer service personnel and technical staff. For example, when you enter certain sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our order forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer (SSL) technology, which creates an encrypted connection between you and our systems. Once we collect your credit card or debit card information, it is stored encrypted on restricted-access computers that are not directly accessible via the Internet. Please note that no method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure, however, and ReverbNation cannot guarantee the security of user account information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of member information at any time. Users are urged to also take precautions to protect their PII by changing passwords often using a combination of letters and numbers, and using a secure web browser.
For any additional information about the security measures ReverbNation uses on the Site, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This Site and our Services are oriented toward a general audience and intended for adults only. We do not knowingly collect PII from those under the age of thirteen (13). If you believe that we have inadvertently collected PII from a person under thirteen (13), please contact us so that we can investigate and take any necessary remedial measures.
When we transfer PII for any of the purposes identified in this policy from the European Economic Area (“EEA”) or Switzerland to another party located outside of the EEA or Switzerland, we will rely on a legal framework that provides appropriate safeguards, which could include obtaining your consent for such data transfer, the standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission, or another framework deemed adequate by the European Commission. In cases where we transfer your PII pursuant to your consent, you may contact us by email to email@example.com to request that your consent be withdrawn.
California law permits certain users of our site who are California residents to request certain information regarding disclosure of PII to third parties for such third parties' direct marketing purposes during the past year. You may make such a request by writing to us at:
You may also email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please include the full name and contact information for your ReverbNation account in your request, and include the statement "Your California Privacy Rights" in the subject field of your letter or email. Please allow thirty (30) days for a response.
This section sets out rights applicable only to PII of individuals located in the EEA or Switzerland, and our obligations regarding their PII.
If you are located in the EEA or Switzerland, then you may have the right to restrict or object to our processing of your PII. The right to restrict processing arises only in limited circumstances, for example, if you think we are processing inaccurate information. In addition, if we are required to restrict processing but the requirement is temporary, we may not be permanently obligated to adhere to your request. We will, however, let you know when the restriction is lifted. In cases where our basis for processing your information is the satisfaction of our legitimate interests (e.g., fraud prevention), you may object to our processing. However, we will decline your request if our interest in continuing to process your information is sufficiently compelling to legally override your interest in the request, or our processing is necessary to establish, exercise, or defend a legal claim. You also may prevent us from sending direct marketing at any time without limitation. To request a restriction or to object to processing, please submit your request by sending an email to email@example.com.
Individuals located in the EEA or Switzerland may also have the right to obtain their PII so they can transfer it to another party, or ask us to do so on their behalf, which we will do when technically feasible. This right is limited, and only arises when our processing of your information is automated and based on your consent or our terms and conditions. To exercise this right, please submit your request by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Individuals located in the EEA or Switzerland can contact us with any questions or concerns about how we process their PII via email at email@example.com. If you are located in the EEA or Switzerland, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority established in your country.
