2. The information we collect

2.1 Registration data

When you sign up for the Service, we may collect certain information on your contact person(s), like name, e-mail address and business address. Soundtrack Your Brand Sweden AB is the data controller of personal data (“Personal Data”) processed under this Privacy Policy.

With non-personal data we refer to information that does not permit direct or indirect association with you.

2.2 Usage, log data & cookies

We only collect, process and use your Personal Data if you have given us your prior consent or if legal provisions permit us to do so. You guarantee that the Personal Data you provide us with is true, accurate and up to date. If the information you provide upon accessing the Service is outdated, we kindly ask you to update your account with correct information. Furthermore, we also collect and process some non-personal data.

In addition, the third party payment processors generally provide us with limited information related to you, such as a unique token that enables you to make additional purchases using the information they’ve stored, and your type of card, expiry date and last four digits. If you choose to pay by invoice, we may need to collect and transfer additional information, like your company name, registration number and phone number, to our invoicing service provider to enable credit checks and send you invoices.

If the provisions of the Special Promotion’s privacy policy or terms and conditions conflict with this Privacy Policy or the GTC, those separate terms and conditions or privacy policy shall prevail. If you choose to participate in a Special Promotion, we may ask you for certain personal information in addition to what is stated in this Privacy Policy.

4. How we share the information we collect

Personal Data may be disclosed to companies in the Soundtrack Your Brand group of companies (including subsidiaries and ultimate holding company and its subsidiaries) and partners, established both inside and outside the EEA, which we need for the delivery of the Service and for the purposes set forth in this Privacy Policy. By submitting your Personal Data, you consent to such transfer and disclosure.

Accordingly, we may share the information we collect, including your personal information, as follows:

4.1 Sharing with Spotify and licensors

For Products provided in cooperation with Spotify and any other third party platforms we may cooperate with from time to time, we may share the information with such platform provider and its licensors. The platform provider may process the information for purposes of administering the relationship with its licensors, which may involve sharing the information outside of the European Union. Certain information may also have to be provided directly by you to Spotify or such other platform when registering as a user. The platform provider and its licensors are obliged to comply with applicable data protection regulation as well as with their own, at each time applicable, privacy policies.

4.2 Sharing with other Third Party Applications

To personalise your experience, we may share some information we have collected about you with providers of Third Party Applications, such as high-level geographic information, your musical preferences, settings and technical data. However, we take precautions to prohibit Third Party Application providers from attempting to identify you by using the information we provide to them or by collecting additional information without your consent.

Please note that if you actively choose to provide Third Party Applications with additional information, such as by visiting a Third Party Application (which enables collection of your IP address), dragging and dropping a playlist into a Third Party Application, or allowing us to share precise geographic data which Third Party Application-providers request from us; or consent to collection of additional information about you by a Third Party Application provider when you for example register with or log in to the Third Party Application, the Third Party Application may be able to identify you and associate the information previously provided by SYB with you. You agree and understand that a Third Party Application provider’s privacy policy governs its use of your information that we provide to it or that it collects from you.

4.3 Sharing with business partners and third party service providers

We may from time to time share your information with certain trusted business partners and third party service providers to enable them to perform functions and process user data on our behalf, consistent with section 3 above. Such third parties’ processing of user data will always be subject to security and confidentiality obligations consistent with this Privacy Policy and applicable law.

4.4 Other sharing

In addition to the above, we may also share your information to third parties for these limited purposes:

  • to allow a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of our assets;
  • to respond to or initiate legal process (e.g. a court order or subpoena), if we believe in good faith that it is necessary to do so; to comply with requirements of mandatory applicable law;
  • to protect the safety of any person; to protect the rights and property of SYB, including to enforce the Agreement with you;
  • and to address fraud, security or technical issues;
  • to allow other companies in our company group to use or process your information as specified in this Privacy Policy;
  • to inform business partners about use of the Service and products and services made available through the Service, in the form of aggregated statistics or otherwise in a format which does not reveal your identity; and
    if you expressly opt in to such sharing.

You understand and agree that the privacy policies of third parties will govern all use of information that we provide to them under this section.

5. Your preferences

Through your settings, you can choose which communications you receive from us, manage your public information, and set your sharing preferences. However, please note that it may not be possible to make certain information private on the Service, including your name and/or username, profile picture, and other basic information, such as your following relationships. Such information and other information which are set to “public” in your settings, such as playlists, may be used, re-shared or linked to by others on the Service or others across the web, so please use the Service carefully and manage your account settings regularly. Remember that if you make profile content private, others who already subscribe to or otherwise have the details of such content may still have access to it. Also keep in mind that playlists and other content added to your profile may include personal information, such as username, which could enable other persons to find you in the Service.

6. Transfer to other countries

However, other companies of our company group will only process your information as described in this Privacy Policy. You expressly consent to your information being used as set out in this section 6.
