HOW WE COLLECT INFORMATION
INFORMATION COVERED BY THIS PRIVACY NOTICE
This Privacy Notice covers all personal information collected and used by us. In this Privacy Notice, "personal data" or "personal information" means information that (either on its own or in combination with other information held by us) enables you to be identified as an individual or recognised directly or indirectly. This may include your name, email address, phone number, where you are based or purchasing our products or services from, credit card number, details of the preferences you express to us, and technical information from the devices you use to access JOOX Music.
We (and our service providers) may collect personal information (such as your name and email address, telephone number, payment information and preferences) from you when you:
- purchase products or services from us;
- submit any information through the JOOX Music application;
- create an account with us, or otherwise sign up for a service;
- communicate with us via third-party social media websites;
- authorise us to access media stored on your device;
- scan a QR code using your camera indicating the type of content you would like to access;
- contact us, correspond with us, or otherwise provide information to us.
In some cases, you may provide personal information to us about another person. In such cases, you confirm that you have the authorisation of such person to provide us with this information.
When you create a JOOX Music account for the first time with an email address that you have previously provided to us in another circumstance (e.g., when signing up for our emails or for a JOOX account), we may recognise that email address and, once you have completed the online account set-up process, you may be able to see some of your personal information already included in your new online account. This is happening because we have recognised your email address and, for your convenience, have added your information to your online account. You can always change this information by signing into your online account.
In certain cases, it is mandatory for you to provide your personal information, for example your email address when creating an account. In other cases, you can choose whether to provide your personal information, but if you do not provide it (for example access to media stored on your device), you may miss out on a more personalised experience.
