Welcome to Circyouity®, a service provided by Circyouity Limited (“Circyouity”, “we” “our”, “us”).
We have a pretty simple approach to data protection and privacy, which can be summarised as follows:
We’ve designed the Website to give you control over the information you publish and share using Circyouity® and other sites and services to which you connect your Circyouity® account. Please take full advantage of these tools and make sure you only share what you want to share.
We collect information about you from various sources:
You don’t need to provide us with any personal data in order to visit the Website. However, certain Services do require that you register for a Circyouity® account and, by doing so, you will provide us with certain information:
None of this profile information is mandatory, and any information you do provide may be deleted, edited, changed or amended by you at any time. For more information, see the Choice and Control section below.
There is certain information that we collect automatically as the result of your use of the Platform, or through the use of web analytics services as described in our Cookies Policy. This information includes:
Circyouity allows you to sign up and log in using your Facebook account. If you sign up using Facebook, Facebook will ask your permission to share certain information from your Facebook account with Circyouity. This includes your first name, last name, gender, general location, a link to your Facebook profile, your timezone, birthday, profile picture, your "likes" and your list of friends.
If you sign up to Circyouity® using Facebook, your Circyouity® account will be connected automatically to your Facebook account, and information regarding your activity on Circyouity®, specifically any new public Content that you post on Circyouity® and any new favourites, will be shared with Facebook and will be published in your timeline and your Facebook friends’ newsfeeds. If you do not wish to share your Circyouity® activity with your Facebook friends, you can control this from the Settings page on the Website – for more information, see the Choice and Control section below. If you signed up using Facebook by mistake, you can delete your account from the Account page within your Settings at any time, or you can email us at [email protected].
If you signed up to Circyouity® using Google+ by mistake, you can delete your account from the account page within your settings at any time, or you can email us at [email protected].
We use the information that we collect about you for the following purposes:
Use of and interaction with the Platform:
Improving and customizing the Platform and advertising:
For other purposes, provided we disclose this to you at the relevant time, and provided that you agree to the proposed use of your personal data.
We do our best to give you as much choice as possible regarding the amount of information you provide to us, and the control you have over that information.
It is not necessary for you to provide us with any personal data 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 a Circyouity® account, you can control your information in the following ways.
Check out the Email tab within your Settings page on the Website. When you are logged in to your account, you can access your Settings by clicking on your profile picture at the top of the screen, and selecting Settings from the drop down menu.
From the Email tab you can tell us:
You can also turn off email notifications from the Account page within your Settings. This will immediately disable all email notifications, other than essential account notifications such as important service updates, reports of copyright infringement and other essential information relating to your account and your use of the Platform.
It is also possible to unsubscribe from email newsletters and notifications (other than essential account notifications) at any time by clicking on the link at the end of each email.
The Connections tab within your Settings on the Website enables you to control the information you share with other networks and applications. As well as selecting those of your social networks you wish to share to, you can also control access to other services and applications to which you have connected your Circyouity® account.
If you sign up for Circyouity® using your Facebook or Google+ account, your Circyouity® account and your Facebook or Google+ account respectively will be connected automatically. Information regarding the public Content that you post, listen or favourite on Circyouity®, will be shared with the connected Facebook or Google+ account. Content that you share with Facebook will appear on your timeline and in your Facebook friends’ newsfeeds. Content you share with Google will be seen by the people from your Google+ circles when they visit your Google+ profile, make relevant Google searches, on Google-served ads, and the services selected in your Google account settings. If you do not want this information shared with Facebook or Google, please change your Settings.
Circyouity® is a very social place, but if you would prefer to browse the Website anonymously, you can do so by checking the Anonymous Listening box in the Account tab within your Settings on the Website. By checking this box, other users will not be able to see the Contentthat you listened to, but we will still have access to this information.
If any of Your Content contain any personal data or any other information which you would not like to share, you can control who has access to this Content, booking and activities using the settings in the Content page (click on the pencil icon in the waveform player for the relevant Content). By setting Your Content to “private”, rather than “public”, you can limit who has access to your Content.
Circyouity® has an open API, which allows third party developers to build some really cool apps as an extension of the Platform. If you would prefer that Your Content are not made available to third party app developers, you can disable API access within the sound page for each of the Content that you upload. Click on the pencil icon in the waveform player, and uncheck the “Apps enabled” box at the bottom of the page. Please note that your public profile information will still be accessible, but this does not include anything that is not publicly available on the Website.
You can use the settings within our iOS device or within the Android app to opt-out of analytics tracking and bug reporting. For the opt-out, if you are using our iOS app, go to the settings of your iOS device and open the Circyouity® tab. With an Android device you need to open the Circyouity® app and open the basic settings tab within. From there you can simply disable analytics and/or bug reporting to stop any analytics data or bug reporting information being sent from the app. Further information is available in our Cookies Policy.
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 Content that you have uploaded and the usage data associated with the Content 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 Circyouity® 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 Circyouity’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.
As described above, most of the personal data and other information you provide to us can be accessed and updated in the Settings page of your Circyouity® account. If you wish to access, amend or delete any other personal data we hold about you, or if you have any objection to the processing of any personal data that we hold about you, please contact us at [email protected], or the address provided below.
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 data in order to satisfy our legal obligations, or where we have a legitimate reason for doing so.
Circyouity® 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 personal data, please notify us immediately at [email protected].
