Privacy policy



This Privacy Policy describes the policies and procedures of Ayoze Pérez Rodríguez. ("I", "ME" or "MY") on the collection, use and disclosure of your information in connection with your use of www.soundrsapp.com (the "SITE"), the mobile applications, and the services, features, or content Ioffer (collectively with the SITE, the "SERVICES"). I receive information about you from various sources, including: (i) if you register for an account on the SERVICES, through your user account (your “ACCOUNT”); (ii) your use of the SERVICES generally; and (iii) from third party websites and services. When you use the SERVICES, you are consenting to the collection, transfer, manipulation, storage, disclosure and other uses of your information as described in this Privacy Policy.

What Does This Privacy Policy Cover?

This Privacy Policy covers the treatment of personally identifiable information ("PERSONAL DATA") gathered when you are using or accessing the SERVICES. This Privacy Policy also covers the treatment of any PERSONAL DATA that my business partners share with me or that I share with my business partners.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including but not limited to any third party websites, services and applications (each a "THIRD PARTY SERVICE") that you elect to access through the Service or to individuals that I do not manage or employ. While I attempt to facilitate access only to those THIRD PARTY SERVICE that share my respect for your privacy, I cannot take responsibility for the content or privacy policies of those THIRD PARTY SERVICE. I encourage you to carefully review the privacy policies of any THIRD PARTY SERVICE you access.

What Information Do I Collect From You?

I collect PERSONAL DATA about you when you provide such information directly to ME, when third parties such as MY business partners or service providers provide ME with PERSONAL DATA about you, or when PERSONAL DATA about you is automatically collected in connection with your use of MY SERVICES. The information Igather enables MY to personalize, improve, understand and continue to operate the SERVICES. In connection with certain aspects of the SERVICES, I may request, collect and/or display some of your PERSONAL DATA. Below explains in greater detail the types of information that I collect from the users. The user can also upload files to a server from his/her device, and the app does not get other data from the user device.

All these data will remain in my partner servers and I am not responsible if this third party services make a wrong use of the data.

In other words: SOUNDRS only collects the necessary data to identify the different users using the app. For this purpose I collect a username and email. In case of registration using social network login, it will be used the name of the user in that social network. All this data are collected from these sources with the consent of the user.

Information You Provide to ME

ACCOUNT Information:

If you create an ACCOUNT, you will provide information that could be PERSONAL DATA, such as your email address and a password. You may also choose to provide additional PERSONAL DATA, including your contact name.

Additionally, if you register for or access the SERVICES using a THIRD PARTY SERVICE (such as your social media account login credentials), I may receive PERSONAL DATA that you have made available to share through such THIRD PARTY SERVICE, which may include, without limitation, your user ID, email and name. You acknowledge that this information may be personal to you, and by creating an ACCOUNT and providing PERSONAL DATA to ME, you allow others, including ME, to identify you and therefore may not be anonymous. I may use your contact information to send you information about the SERVICES.

User Content:

Some features of the SERVICES allow you to provide content to the SERVICES, including PERSONAL DATA if you so choose. User contributions include short sounds. All content submitted by you to the SERVICES may be retained by ME indefinitely, even after you terminate your ACCOUNT or your access to the SERVICES is terminated. I may continue to disclose such content to third parties in a manner that does not reveal PERSONAL DATA, as described in this Privacy Policy.

Information From Others

As mentioned above, you may be able to register for or access the SERVICES using a THIRD PARTY SERVICE, such as your social media account (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, etc.). Occasionally, you can also use your ACCOUNT on the SERVICES to interact with your accounts on these other services. For example, you may be able to access posting and sharing tools on the SERVICES that allow you to post information to your social networks outside of the SERVICES (“SHARE”). By using these tools, you acknowledge that some information (such as your IP address) from your account on the applicable THIRD PARTY SERVICE may be transmitted into your ACCOUNT with ME, in accordance with the policies and your account privacy settings selected through that THIRD PARTY SERVICE, and that such information and content is covered by this Privacy Policy. Furthermore, if a tool, such as the SHARE tool, is operated by a THIRD PARTY SERVICE, the THIRD PARTY SERVICE that operates the tool may collect information about your browser or online activity, which would be subject to the THIRD PARTY SERVICE’s privacy policy and your account settings selected through that THIRD PARTY SERVICE. When you use these tools, some of your information from the SERVICES may be shared with the THIRD PARTY SERVICE and others. Therefore, I encourage you to read the privacy policies and other policies of any THIRD PARTY SERVICEs, including without limitation any applicable social networks, that you use in connection with the Services. Additionally, I may collect and receive your applicable THIRD PARTY SERVICE login credentials in connection with providing you with the SERVICES, but only if you expressly provide ME with such information. I will only use such login information as set forth in this Privacy Policy or as otherwise expressly authorized by you.

Information Collected Automatically

I automatically receive and record information from your web browser or device when you interact with the SERVICES, including your IP address, device ID and cookie information. This information is used for fighting spam/malware and also to facilitate collection of data concerning your interaction with the Services (e.g., what links you have clicked on). Your IP address may be used to send you geographically-targeted advertisements. Generally, the SERVICES automatically collect usage information, such as the number and frequency of visitors to the SITE and the SERVICES. I may use this data in aggregate form, for example, as a statistical measure or in other anonymous forms, but not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables ME and third parties authorized by ME to figure out how often individuals use parts of the SERVICES so that I can analyze and improve them.

Information Collected Using Cookies

Information Related to Advertising and the Use of Web Beacons

To support and enhance the SERVICES, I may serve advertisements through the SERVICES. These advertisements are sometimes targeted and served to particular users, including using your IP address to send you geographically-targeted advertisements, and may come from third party companies called "ad networks." Ad networks include third party ad servers, ad agencies, ad technology vendors and research firms. I may also receive anonymized user data, so I can learn and make enhancements to offer you a better experience. Some of these entities may use cookies, web beacons and other technologies to collect information about your use of the SERVICES and other websites, including your IP address, web browser, pages viewed, time spent on pages, links clicked and conversion information. This information may be used by ME and others to, among other things, tailor the SERVICES to you (for example, by providing search results in your preferred language), analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content, deliver advertising and content targeted to your interests on the SERVICES and other websites and better understand your online activity. Advertisements served through the SERVICES may be targeted to users who fit a certain general profile category and may be based on anonymized information inferred from information provided to ME by a user, including PERSONAL DATA, may be based on the SERVICES usage patterns of particular users, or may be based on your activity on THIRD PARTY SERVICEs. I do not provide PERSONAL DATA to any ad networks for use outside of the SERVICES. To increase the effectiveness of ad delivery, I may deliver a file (known as a "web beacon") from an ad network to you through the SERVICES. Web beacons allow ad networks to provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research and reporting for ME and for advertisers. Web beacons also enable ad networks to serve targeted advertisements to you when you visit other websites. Because your web browser must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad network's servers, these companies can view, edit or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site. I may also collect advertising identifiers from your mobile device. Advertising identifiers are resettable identifiers unique to your mobile device, and which are used in connection with advertising delivered to your mobile device. The IDFA (developed by Apple, Inc. for the iPhone) and Google Ad ID (developed by Google for Android) are examples of advertising identifiers.

Aggregate Information

I collect statistical information about how both unregistered and registered users, collectively, use the SERVICES ("AGGREGATE INFORMATION"). Some of this information is derived from PERSONAL DATA. This statistical information is not PERSONAL DATA and cannot be tied back to you, your ACCOUNT, or your web browser.

Personal Data of Children

As noted in the TERMS OF SERVICE, I do not knowingly collect or solicit PERSONAL DATA from anyone under the age of 13. If you are under 13, please do not attempt to register for the SERVICES or send any PERSONAL DATA about yourself to ME. If I know that I have collected PERSONAL DATA from a child under age 13, I will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a child under 13 may have provided ME PERSONAL DATA, please contact ME at support@soundrsapp.com.

How, and With Whom, Is My Information Shared?

The SERVICES are designed to help you share information with others. As a result, some of the information generated through the SERVICES is shared publicly or with THIRD PARTY SERVICES. Below further describes the ways in which I may share your information.

Public Information About You and Your Activity on the SERVICES

Sounds you upload may be displayed to other users to facilitate user interaction within the SERVICES. We will not directly reveal user email addresses or PERSONAL DATA to other users.

Some of your activity on and through the SERVICES is public by default. This may include, but is not limited to, content you have posted publicly through the SERVICES. Registered users may have some of this information associated with their ACCOUNTS. Unregistered users will not have this association, but information concerning their use of the SERVICES (such as what pages they have visited or sounds they play) may be tracked anonymously through the use of cookies and stored by ME.

Please remember that if you choose to provide PERSONAL DATA using certain public features of the SERVICES, then that information is governed by the privacy settings of those particular features and may be publicly available. Individuals reading such information may use or disclose it to other individuals or entities without MY control and without your knowledge, and search engines may index that information. I therefore urge you to think carefully about including any specific information you may deem private in content that you create or information that you submit through the SERVICES.

Information Shared Through THIRD PARTY SERVICES

You may access other THIRD PARTY SERVICEs through the SERVICES, for example by clicking on links to those THIRD PARTY SERVICEs from within MY SERVICES. I am not responsible for the privacy policies and/or practices of these THIRD PARTY SERVICEs, and you are responsible for reading and understanding those THIRD PARTY SERVICEs' privacy policies. This Privacy Policy only governs information collected on the SERVICES.

Information Shared In Connection with Related Services

While I collect and store IP address and device ID information, that information is not made public. I do at times, however, share this information with MY partners, service providers and other persons with whom I conduct business, and as otherwise specified in this Privacy Policy.

I also share AGGREGATE INFORMATION with MY partners, service providers and other persons with whom I conduct business. I share this type of statistical data so that MY partners can understand how and how often people use the SERVICES and their services or websites, which facilitates improving both their services and how MY SERVICES interface with them. In addition, these third parties may share with ME non-private, aggregated or otherwise non Personal Information about you that they have independently developed or acquired.

Information Disclosed for Our Protection and the Protection of Others

I also reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information as I reasonably believe is necessary to (i) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, (ii) enforce this Privacy Policy and MY Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations hereof, (iii) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, (iv) respond to user support requests, or (v) protect MY rights, property or safety, the users, MY partners and the public. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and spam/malware prevention.

Information I Share With Your Consent

Except as set forth herein, you will be notified when your PERSONAL DATA may be shared with third parties, and will be able to prevent the sharing of this information.

What Choices Do I Have Regarding My Information?

Access and Control Your PERSONAL DATA

California Privacy Rights: Under California Civil Code sections 1798.83-1798.84, California residents are entitled to ask ME for a notice identifying the categories of personal customer information which I share with MY affiliates and/or third parties for marketing purposes, and providing contact information for such affiliates and/or third parties. If you are a California resident and would like a copy of this notice, please submit a written request to the following address: Lutherstraße 21, 07743 Jena, Thüringen, Germany.

Opt-Out of Targeted Advertising

I want you to know that by opting-out of targeted advertising does not mean that you will no longer receive advertising, but just that the advertising that you do receive will not be customized to you and may feel less relevant to you.

Delete Your Account

Should you ever decide to delete your ACCOUNT, you may do so by using the tools provided in the SERVICES. If you terminate your ACCOUNT, any association between your ACCOUNT and information I store will no longer be accessible through your ACCOUNT. However, given the nature of sharing on the SERVICES, any public activity on your ACCOUNT prior to deletion will remain stored on the servers and may remain accessible to the public.

In other words: By deleting your account, your data will be complete deleted, but the sounds you have uploaded to the SERVICES will remain for the public use if they are public.

How Long Do We Retain Your PERSONAL DATA?

I retain PERSONAL DATA about you for as long as you have an open account in the SERVICE or as otherwise necessary to provide you SERVICES. In some cases I retain PERSONAL DATA for longer, if doing so is necessary to comply with MY legal obligations, resolve disputes or collect fees owed, or is otherwise permitted or required by applicable law, rule or regulation. Afterwards, I retain some information in a depersonalized or aggregated form but not in a way that would identify you personally.

Is the Information About Me Secure?

Your ACCOUNT information will be protected by a password for your privacy and security. You need to prevent unauthorized access to your ACCOUNT and PERSONAL DATA by selecting and protecting your password appropriately and limiting access to your computer and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your ACCOUNT.

I seek to protect ACCOUNT information to ensure that it is kept private; however, I cannot guarantee the security of any ACCOUNT information. I store all the information, including your IP address information, using industry-standard techniques. I do not guarantee or warrant that such techniques will prevent unauthorized access to information about you that I store, PERSONAL DATA or otherwise. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time.

I do not have complete control over the server, as I use a called “Serverless” service. This service may be under the control of Back4App Inc, (“Back4App”). Using the SERVICES you accept that I cannot completely control the deepest parts of the server and that the information quoted above will be stored there.

What Happens When There Are Changes to this Privacy Policy?

I may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time. Use of information I collect now is subject to the Privacy Policy in effect at the time such information is collected. If I make changes in the way I collect or use information, I will notify you by posting an announcement on the SERVICES or sending you an email. A user is bound by any changes to the Privacy Policy when he or she uses the SERVICES after such changes have been first posted.

What If I Have Questions or Concerns?

If you have any questions or concerns regarding privacy using the SERVICES, please send ME a detailed message to support@soundrsapp.com. I will make every effort to resolve your concerns.

EU Residents

If you are a resident of the European Union (“EU”), United Kingdom, Lichtenstein, Norway, or Iceland, you may have additional rights under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”) with respect to your PERSONAL DATA, as outlined below.

For this section, I use the terms “Personal Data” and “processing” as they are defined in the GDPR, but “Personal Data” generally means information that can be used to individually identify a person, and “processing” generally covers actions that can be performed in connection with data such as collection, use, storage and disclosure. I will be the controller of your Personal Data processed in connection with the SERVICES. If there are any conflicts between this section and any other provision of this Privacy Policy, the policy or portion that is more protective of Personal Data shall control to the extent of such conflict.

If you have any questions about this section or whether any of the following applies to you, please contact ME at dataprotection@soundrsapp.com.

I will only process your Personal Data if I have a lawful basis for doing so. Lawful bases for processing include consent, contractual necessity and MY “legitimate interests” or the legitimate interest of others, as further described below. The legal bases depend on the SERVICES you use and how you use them.

Contractual Necessity

I also process the following categories of Personal Data as a matter of “contractual necessity”, meaning that I need to process the data to perform under the Terms of Service with you, which enables ME to provide you with the SERVICEs. When I process data due to contractual necessity, failure to provide such Personal Data will result in your inability to use some or all portions of the SERVICES that require such data.

Legitimate Interest:

I process the following categories of Personal Data when I believe it furthers the legitimate MY interest or the interest of third parties (which is not overridden by your data protection interests)

Examples of these legitimate interests include:

Consent

In some cases, I may process Personal Data based on the consent you expressly grant to ME at the time I collect such data. When I process Personal Data based on your consent, it will be expressly indicated to you at the point and time of collection.

Other Processing Grounds

From time to time I may also need to process Personal Data to comply with a legal obligation, if it is necessary to protect the vital interests of you or other data subjects, or if it is necessary for a task carried out in the public interest.

Personal Data of Children

I do not knowingly collect or solicit Personal Data from anyone under the age of 16. If you are under 16, please do not attempt to register for the SERVICES or send any Personal Data about yourself to ME. If I know that I have collected Personal Data from a child under age 16, I will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a child under 16 may have provided ME Personal Data, please contact ME at dataprotection@soundrsapp.com.

What Rights Do You Have Regarding Your Personal Data?

You have certain rights with respect to your Personal Data, including those set forth below. For more information about these rights, or to submit a request, please email dataprotection@soundrsapp.com. Please note that in some circumstances, I may not be able to fully comply with your request, such as if it is frivolous or extremely impractical, if it jeopardizes the rights of others, or if it is not required by law, but in those circumstances, I will still respond to notify you of such a decision. In some cases, I may also need to you to provide ME with additional information, which may include Personal Data, if necessary to verify your identity and the nature of your request.

Transfers of Personal Data

The SERVICES mobile database is hosted in the United States (“U.S.”) through Back4App and MY service providers, and if you do not reside in the U.S., laws in the U.S. may differ from the laws where you reside. By using the SERVICES, you acknowledge that any Personal Data about you, regardless of whether provided by you or obtained from a third party, is being provided to ME in EU but will be hosted on U.S. servers, and you authorize ME to transfer, store and process your information to and in the U.S., and possibly other countries.

SOUNDRS complies with the EU.-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework regarding the collection, use and retention of Personal Data transferred from the EU to the U.S. I adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles of (1) notice, (2) consent, (3) accountability for onward transfer, (4) security, (5) data integrity and purpose limitation, (6) access and (7) recourse, enforcement and liability with respect to all Personal Data received from within the EU. The Privacy Shield Principles require that I remain potentially liable if any third party processing Personal Data on MY behalf fails to comply with these Privacy Shield Principles (except to the extent I am not responsible for the event giving rise to any alleged damage). To learn more about the Privacy Shield Program, please visit www.privacyshield.gov.

In compliance with Privacy Shield Principles, SOUNDRS commits to resolve complaints about MY collection or use of Personal Data. Please contact ME at dataprotection@soundrsapp.com with any questions or concerns relating to Privacy Shield policy. I have further committed to refer any unresolved Privacy Shield complaints through an international dispute resolution and arbitration association located in either the United States or in Europe. If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint from ME, or if I have not addressed your complaint to your satisfaction, you can visit http://go.adr.org/privacyshield.html for more information or to file a complaint, at no cost to you. Under certain conditions, you may also be entitled to invoke binding arbitration for complaints not resolved by other means.
