We do not rent or sell any of your Personal Information, but we share your Personal Information with third parties in cases described as follows and only to the extent permitted by law.
7.1 For External Processing (e.g. Label Reporting and Financial Transactions)
We collect information on online music consumption for billing purposes, such as paying royalties and license fees to third party providers, who include record labels and other copyright holders and content distributors (see Sec. 4.6). This Personal Information is processed and shared in an anonymized manner to provide aggregate licensing reports back to the rights holders of the music content.
7.2 Targeted Advertising
We need advertising revenue to operate a sustainable business. By targeting adverts you are more likely to receive ads that will be of interest to you.
The targeted ads that you receive are provided by third party advertising providers that we work together with. We provide the advertising provider with your Personal Information (see Sec. 5.4) which the advertising provider uses to customize the advertising. For this purpose, the Service uses a platform advertising ID. The advertising ID is a non-permanent unique device identifier, which is generated by the OS (or if unavailable from the OS then by the service) each time the application is started. We share the advertising ID with the advertising provider. The advertising ID enables the advertising provider to re-use data and information from other device Apps if the operator of the other device App is a contractual partner of the advertising provider as we are. Re-use of data means that if you have used a different app and that app had used the same advertising provider, then the advertising provider can use your information from the other app to facilitate the provision of targeting advertising to you.
The advertising ID also gives you more control over the advertising providers’ ability to serve you with targeted ads and helps us increase the relevancy of ads we provide to you.
7.3 Customised and Localised Advertising
We may use the Personal Information we collect to provide, personalise, and improve your experience with the Service and products made available through the Service by providing customised or localised advertising (see Sec. 5.1). The advertising provider that we work together with (see Sec. 7.2) customizes and tailors adverts using your Personal Information as described in Sec. 5.1. To do so, we provide the advertising provider with your Personal Information from your MixRadio account (see Sec. 4.1), your Personal Information about your listening activity (see Sec. 4.4), technical data (see Sec. 4.5) and your location data (see Sec. 4.7). However, your device ID, including IMSI and IMEI, is only provided in an encrypted one-way hashed format to advertising providers.
7.4 With Service Providers
7.5 Compliance with Regulatory Authorities
We will share Personal Information with companies, organisations or individuals outside if that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is necessary to meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
7.6 For Legal Reasons, Including Copyright
We may also share your Personal Information to third parties to respond to legal process (e.g. a court order), if we believe in good faith that it is necessary to do so; to comply with requirements of mandatory applicable law; to protect the rights and property of MixRadio, including to enforce the Service Terms; and to address fraud, security or technical issues.
7.7 To Protect a Person
