We at Drowned in Sound are committed to respecting your online privacy and recognise your need for appropriate protection and management of any personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) you share with us.
Personal Information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, a home or other physical address and an email address or other contact information, whether at work or at home. In general, you can visit Drowned in Sound’s Web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any Personal Information about yourself.
If you choose to provide us with your Personal Information on the Web, we may transfer that Information within Drowned in Sound or to Drowned in Sound’s third-party service providers, across borders, and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world.
Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
Some of our Web pages utilize “cookies” and other tracking technologies. A “cookie” is a small text file that may be used, for example, to collect information about Web site activity. Some cookies and other technologies may serve to recall Personal Information previously indicated by a Web user. Most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them.
You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser, but please note that if you choose to erase or block your cookies, you will need to re-enter your original username and password to gain access to certain parts of the Web site.
To protect your privacy, we have adopted the following principles:
• Notice: ?Where Drowned in Sound collects Personal Information on the web, we intend to post a purpose statement that explains why Personal Information will be collected and whether we plan to share such Personal Information outside of Drowned in Sound or those working on Drowned in Sound’s behalf. Drowned in Sound does not intend to transfer Personal Information without your consent to third parties who are not bound to act on Drowned in Sound’s behalf unless such transfer is legally required.
• Choice?: You may choose whether or not to provide Personal Information to Drowned in Sound. The notice we intend to provide where Drowned in Sound collects Personal Information on the Web should help you to make this choice. If you choose not to provide the Personal Information we request, you can still visit most of Drowned in Sound’s Web sites, but you may be unable to access certain options, offers, and services that involve our interaction with you.
As demonstrated above, Drowned in Sound take great care to protect user privacy.
We currently operate an ‘implied consent’ policy which means that by not-opting out, we assume you are happy with this usage.
If you would prefer to opt-out of any or all of these services, please follow the links below:
If you chose to have a relationship with Drowned in Sound, such as a contractual or other business relationship or partnership, we will naturally continue to contact you in connection with that business relationship.
• Security: ?Wherever your Personal Information may be held within Drowned in Sound or on its behalf, we intend to take reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the Personal Information that you share with us from unauthorised access or disclosure.
• Access/Accuracy: ?To the extent that you do provide us with Personal Information, Drowned in Sound wishes to maintain accurate Personal Information. Where we collect Personal Information from you on the Web, our goal is to provide a means of contacting Drowned in Sound should you need to update or correct that Information. If for any reason those means are unavailable or inaccessible, you may send updates and corrections about your Personal Information to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make reasonable efforts to incorporate the changes in your Personal Information that we hold as soon as practicable.
Third Party Services
Third parties provide certain services available on Drowned in Sound.com on Drowned in Sound’s behalf. Drowned in Sound may provide information, including Personal Information, that Drowned in Sound collects on the Web to third-party service providers to help us deliver programs, products, information, and services. Service providers are also an important means by which Drowned in Sound maintains its Web site and mailing lists. Drowned in Sound will take reasonable steps to ensure that these third-party service providers are obligated to protect Personal Information on Drowned in Sound’s behalf.
Drowned in Sound will not transfer Personal Information to third parties who are not bound to act on Drowned in Sound’s behalf unless such transfer is legally required. Similarly, it is against Drowned in Sound’s policy to sell Personal Information.
DrownedinSound.com is not structured to attract children. Accordingly, we do not intend to collect Personal Information from anyone we know to be under 18 years of age.
We are committed to privacy and are actively involved in and support current industry initiatives to preserve
individual privacy rights on the Internet. Protecting your privacy online is an evolving area, and Drowned in
Sound’s Web sites are constantly evolving to meet these demands.
