Welcome to The English Beat’s (“The English Beat,” “we,” “us” or “our”) new, bespoke GDPR and Data Protection Act 2018 compliant Privacy Policy (the “Policy”). The Policy explains how we collect, use, share and protect your personal information when you access or use The English Beat’s applications, services, Website, any software or application programming interfaces (each, a “Service”). In addition, this Policy describes your choices about the collection and use of your information. Our Policy applies to all visitors, users, and others who access the Service (“Users”).

By accessing any Service you are confirming that you agree with our privacy practices as described in this Policy. If you do not agree with this Policy please stop accessing or using our Service.

Changes to our privacy policy
We may modify or update this Policy from time to time, with or without notice, so please review it periodically. If we do elect to provide notice, we may do so via any appropriate means, such as an email notice to the most recent email address we have on file on you. Your continued use of a Service after any modification to this Policy will constitute your acceptance of such modification.

Information we collect
Personal information is any information that identifies your or makes you identifiable. Any information that is anonymized or aggregated should no longer be considered personal information. We may collect the following types of information:

Information you provide us directly:
1. Account information. If you contact us by email, join a mailing list, or are given an opportunity to sign up for our Service, we may collect your name, e-mail address, and other personal identifiers.
2. Profile Information. You can provide us with whatever information you believe it appropriate given the circumstances (e.g., first and last name, phone number, etc.). This information is provided by you voluntarily, and allows us the opportunity to provide you with an appropriate response.
3. Payment Details. If you are given an opportunity to make a purchase via our Service, we will also collect your payment card number, security code, expiration date, cardholder name and billing address.
4. Communications Between Users and The English Beat. We collect any communications between us, including any files or attachments we exchange. For example, we may send you Service-related emails (e.g., account verification, changes/updates to features of the Service, technical and security notices).
5. Geolocation Data. We reserve the right to collect geolocation data so from time to time we may be able to draw inferences from such data, e.g., for the purpose of making certain information available in a given locale, scheduling, tour-dates.

Information we automatically collect about you:
1. Activity Data. We collect information about your use of a Service through third-party analytics tools. These tools collect information sent by your device or our Service, including the web pages you visit, and other information that assists us in improving the Service. We anonymize or aggregate such information so that it cannot reasonably be used to identify any individual User.
2. Cookies and Similar Technologies. When you access a Service, we may use cookies and similar technologies like pixels, web beacons, and local storage to collect information about how you use it. Also, we may ask advertisers or other partners to serve ads or services to your devices, which may use cookies or similar technologies placed by us or the third party. For example, we employ a variety of cookies and trackers on our Website for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, ReverbNation, Google Analytics, AppNexus, et al. which monitor traffic and such.
3. Log File Information. Log file information is automatically reported by your browser each time you make a request to access our Website. It can also be provided when the content of the webpage or app is downloaded to your browser or device. When you use our Service, our servers automatically record certain log file information, including your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links on the Service, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information.
4. Device Information. When you use a mobile device (e.g., a tablet or smartphone) to access our Website, we may access, collect, monitor, store on your device, and/or remotely store one or more “device identifiers.” Device identifiers are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identify your mobile device. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device’s operating system or other software, or data sent to the device owned or operated by The English Beat. A device identifier may deliver information to us or to a third party partner about how you browse and use the Service and may help us or others provide reports or personalized content and ads. Some features of the Service may not function properly if use or availability of device identifiers is impaired or disabled.
5. Metadata. Metadata is usually technical data that is associated with User Content. For example, metadata can describe how, when and by whom a piece of User Content was collected and how that content is formatted. We may add or may have metadata added to User Content including a hashtag, geotag (e.g., to mark your location to a photo), comments or other data. This makes your User Content more searchable by others and more interactive. If your image has a geotag your photo, your latitude and longitude will be stored with the photo and searchable (e.g., through a location or map feature).

Information we obtain about you from third party sources:
1. Third-Party Services. Upon your request, we may collect or share information about you or others from or with third-party products or services integrated into our Service. For example, by clicking on the appropriate link, you can request us to import your contact information from your Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Spotify or email account.
2. Third-Party Marketing Partners and Social Media Platforms. Like many companies, we may engage in marketing activities that may result in collection of your personal information.
