Your privacy is very important to us. At A4 Sounds we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.
- Other sites A4 Sounds operates are a4soundsshop.org, weonlywantthe.earth and communistart.network. It is A4 Sounds’ policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, A4 Sounds collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. A4 Sounds’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how A4 Sounds’ visitors use its website.
A4 Sounds also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. A4 Sounds only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to A4 Sounds websites choose to interact with A4 Sounds in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that A4 Sounds gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive A4 Sounds updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, A4 Sounds collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with A4 Sounds. A4 Sounds does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
A4 Sounds may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, A4 Sounds may use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. A4 Sounds may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, A4 Sounds does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
A4 Sounds discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on A4 Sounds’ behalf or to provide services available at A4 Sounds’ websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using A4 Sounds’ websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. A4 Sounds will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, A4 Sounds discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when A4 Sounds believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of A4 Sounds, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an A4 Sounds website and have supplied your email address, A4 Sounds may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new workshops or courses, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Awesome Motive and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. A4 Sounds takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
Comments and other content submitted to Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
