Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) relates to the use of the Website and Services offered by Hidden Beats Corp and User Content as defined in and pursuant to the Hidden Beats Terms of Service (“Terms”).

This Policy is to inform you of our policies and procedures regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information relating to or originating from users of the Hidden Beats Website and Services.

Collecting Information from you

a) Account Information. When you register with us and create an account, we ask you for certain personal information that can be used to contact and/or identify you which includes your name, address, email address and telephone number.

b) Additional Information You Provide. You may choose to provide additional personal information for your account and profile, such as your photo, location, website and other social networking accounts, usernames or information. You may select the extent to which other Users may view such additional personal information. Providing additional personal information is voluntary and should correlate with the degree of interaction you want to have with other Users.  Please consider carefully what information you disclose in your profile page and your desired level of anonymity.  You can review and revise all personal information you submit for your account at any time.

c) User Content. We receive, collect and store User Content, as outlined in the Terms of Service, which you submit to Hidden Beats along with characteristics such as meta-data related to such content.  Users are responsible to ensure that User Content does include personal information which the User does not wish to disclose or which the User does not have permission or authority to disclose.

d) Cookies. We may use data files known as “cookies” in association with the Services and Website.  A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computing device. We use cookies primarily for two purposes: i) we use “persistent” cookies to save your login information for future login to the Services; and ii) we use “session ID” cookies to enable certain features of the Service, to better understand how you interact with the Service and to monitor aggregate usage and web traffic routing on the Services.  You can instruct your browser by changing its settings to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit.

Using Your Personal Information

a) Account Information and User Content. We use the information and User Content you submit for the express purpose of providing the Website and Services to you and other Users.

b) Aggregate Information and Non-Identifying Information. We may disclose aggregated information that does not include personal information and we may disclose non-identifying information with third parties for industry analysis, demographic profiling and other purposes.  Any information shared in these contexts will not contain your personal information.

c) Service Providers. We may transfer or disclose User Content and personal information to third parties such as our business partners, service vendors and authorized third-party agents in order to provide the Services or to assist us in analyzing how our Services are used.  We provide these third parties with the minimum information required to complete the service or task and third parties are not permitted to use this information for any purpose other than completing the requested service or task.

d) Marketing. We will not sell, rent or disclose your personal information to any third parties for marketing or commercial purposes, unless you have granted us permission to do so. We may, from time to time, send unsolicited messages to Users providing information regarding the Website, the Services, or additional products or services available from Hidden Beats.  By using the Services, you are consenting to receive such unsolicited messages from Hidden Beats.  Users can opt out from receiving these messages within the Website or Services or by email to info@hidden-beats.com

e) Third-Party Applications. We may share your personal information with a third party application with your consent, for example when you choose to access our Services through a third party who may operate a service that provides direct user access to Hidden Beats.

f) Compliance with Laws and Law Enforcement. We may collect and share personal information and any other information available to us in order to investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, violations of the Hidden Beats Terms of Service or as otherwise required by law, and to meet obligations in connection with a sale or transfer of Compass Creative’s business.

Links to other sites and services.

This Policy applies only to personal information collected by us.  Our Services may contain links to other third-party websites and online services that are not owned or controlled by Hidden Beats. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites.

Data Retention

We will retain your personal information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you with the Services. If you wish to terminate your account and request that we no longer use your personal information to provide you services, you may terminate your account by contacting us at info@hidden-beats.com.

After your account terminates or is no longer active, and unless you specifically request us to delete your information, we may but are not obligated to retain your personal information for a reasonable period of time. If you request that we delete your personal information, we may retain a limited amount of your information to the extent that we deem to be necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements. Consistent with these requirements, we will try to delete your personal information as quickly as possible upon request.  Please note, however, that there might be latency in deleting information from our servers and backed-up versions might exist for a period of time after deletion. In addition, we may not delete from our servers files containing non-personal information.

Information Security

The security of your information is very important to us.  We use commercially reasonable security standards to protect the personal information and User Content collected and maintained through the Service. However, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us nor guarantee that information on the Services may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by unauthorized persons.

Breach Notification

We will make any legally required disclosures of any breach or unauthorized disclosure that compromises the security, confidentiality, or integrity of personal information to you via email, posting on the Website, or other means without unreasonable delay, insofar as such notification is consistent with or required by:
(i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement;
(ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system; or
(iii) any applicable breach notification requirements.

International Transfer.

Your information may be transferred to and maintained on computers located outside of Canada where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. If you are located outside Canada and choose to provide information to us, we will transfer personal information to Canada and process it there. Your consent to this Policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer.

If you send private messages or make posts, comments, or otherwise use the Services and Website to communicate with others, you should be aware that any personal information you submit in this fashion can be read, collected, or used by other Users of the Website, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages.
