At BeMusical we're strongly committed to safeguard the privacy of our users and site visitors.
This policy applies where we are acting as a data controller with respect to the personal data (in accordance with Article 4 (1) GDPR) collected of our Website visitors and customers whenever and where we determine the purposes and means of the storing and/or processing of that personal data to be collected.
In this policy “we”, “us” and “our/s” refers to BeMusical.
1. HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA
The storing and/or processing of data through our website and for the purpose of providing our Services, are based on our legitimate interest (in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) GDPR) to monitor and improve both our web-app itself and our customer’s experience associated with it.

The usage data may include your IP address, geographical location, browser type and version, operating system, length of visit, and website navigation paths, as well as information about the timing, and frequency. The source of the usage data is our analytics tracking system provided by Google Analytics. This usage data may be stored and/or processed for the purposes of analyzing the use of the site and its services;
(2) Data that you provide to us for the purpose of subscribing to our email notifications and/or newsletters ("notification data"). The notification data may be stored and/ or processed for the purposes of sending you the relevant notifications and/or newsletters;

We may store and/ or collect following additional data from our registered clients and musicians:
(4) Data that relate to your person and that you provide to us through your proactive act of submitting such data to our database ("account data"). Account data may be stored and/ or used for the purposes of identifying you and advertising you as a musician in order for you to get paid performances and exposure.

If you log in to your account via LinkedIn or Facebook, we may collect and/ or store your name, picture, position, occupation and public URL’s to your LinkedIn or Facebook Profile.

This data may include credit or debit card information, bank account details, the last four digits of your social security number, amounts paid through our marketplace, as well as the actual transaction data including potential refunds. The transaction data may be collected for the purpose of verifying the transaction has gone through without any problems.
We do not store and or process any other person’s personal data and will never ask for it over the phone or through SMS and thus ask you not to provide such data unless and until we prompt you to do so through your secured BeMusical account.
2. PROVIDING PERSONAL DATA TO OTHERS

Payments to us are made through external providers and your data is submitted to the external provider through your proactive act of submitting the data to the payment providers data base. In no circumstance do we store such data. We are thus neither responsible for collecting and/ or storing of personal data through a payment provider or any other administrative service provider. For the Privacy Policies of our Payment Providers, please find the Privacy Policies of Stripe and of Plaid.

We may disclose any of the above-mentioned data to our insurers and/or professional advisers insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes of obtaining professional advice, or the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims, whether in court proceedings or in an administrative or out-of-court procedure.
In addition to the disclosure of data set out herein, we may disclose your personal data where such disclosure is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject, or in order to protect your interests as a natural person or the interests of another natural person. We may also disclose your personal data where such disclosure is necessary with respect to litigation whether in court proceedings or in an administrative or out-of-court procedure.

Users are advised to take caution and good judgement before clicking any shortened URL’s published on social media platforms by this website and its owners.
