At weeSPIN, we are fully committed to respecting your privacy and to protecting any information you provide to us. We treat both privacy and security as a priority and make every effort to ensure that all the information provided by you is protected.

We log and use statistical information related to your use of the App, including location data, in an aggregated and anonymized manner. For more information about our collection and use of such statistical information, please see Section 3.
The Statement explains how weeSPIN collects and uses information. We hope that the information contained in this Statement will answer any queries you may have and will make visiting the App a rewarding experience. Although we endeavor to keep you up-to-date on all changes made to the App, this Statement may be amended from time to time without notice to you. It is your responsibility to read the Statement carefully and review any changes that may have been made.
1. Personal Information
In order to use certain features of the App, you will need to connect using your Facebook or Twitter credentials. If you connect to the App using your Facebook credentials, you authorize us to collect your authentication information, such as your username, encrypted access credentials, and other information that may be available on or through your Facebook account, including your name, profile picture, address, e-mail address, date of birth, gender, friends’ names and profile pictures and networks. We may store this information so that it can be used to verify your credentials with Facebook.
Where you upload photographs or other content as part of your user profile, you should be aware that weeSPIN is entitled to use those photographs and content in accordance with our Terms of Service. weeSPIN discourages users from uploading photographs of friends or other people without their permission.
2. Location-based Information
To provide the App and associated services, we may derive location information from your certain third-party service providers, or directly from the mobile device that you are using. When you use the App, our servers automatically record certain information about your usage. These server logs may include information such as a device identifier, web requests, IP address, referring / exit pages and URLs, operating service, number of clicks, search terms, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, features used in the App, the amount of time spent on particular screens, the dates and times of your requests, and other tracking services that may uniquely identify your activity.
Please note that if you decide not to share your location with other users of the App, the only location information collected will be in respect of where certain songs have been played in an anonymous and aggregated format (e.g. ‘Dive’ by ‘Tycho’ was played in Los Angeles, United States). By using the weeSPIN App and associated services, you permit weeSPIN to anonymize and aggregate such location data and to monitor, analyze and use such anonymized and aggregated location data for the purposes described in Section 3 (Statistical Information) below. If you do not wish to share this information with us, please turn off location in the setting page of the App or cease using the App immediately and remove it from your smartphone or other applicable device.
If you choose to avail of the other location features contained in the App (such as the Location feature etc.) your location will be visible to other users, however please note that you can manage your location settings through the account settings section of the App.
However, please note that if you do decide to share your location, users viewing this information may use it or disclose it to other individuals or entities outside of our control and without your knowledge. Your location information may be subject to abuse, misuse, and monitoring by others, and you share your location at your own risk.
3. Statistical Information
We log certain information concerning the listening and music-sharing activities of users and other activities whilst they use the App for the purpose of providing the App and our services. We may then aggregate and anonymize this information.
From the anonymized information we collect, we are able to compile statistics in the form of percentages and/or figures relating to users’ interaction with the App. We can of course compare the listening activity of one song in a location to those of another song. As a service, we may supply certain anonymized statistical information to record labels and artists in order to help them understand the likes and dislikes of music listeners.
4. Use of Personal Information
We will use the email address provided by you to contact you from time to time. This may be for security reasons (so that we can check that you are who you say you are), to ask your opinion about the App, or it may be to keep you updated on the services currently available on the App and any changes to those services and those that we intend to launch in the future. We may also use such personal information to send you notices, on behalf of others and ourselves, regarding products and services that we think may be of interest to you. If you do not wish to be contacted for such purposes please tick the relevant box when registering with us or contact us at anytime by e-mailing support@weeSPIN.com.
