What we do with your information

 

Information submitted to Amplify The Anthems will be processed to:

 

  • Populate the features that we provide as part of the Amplify The Anthems service.
  • Provide you with updates on the service and the content posted by others that may be of interest to you.
  • Continually improve our service offering and user experience.
  • Provide commercial services to our clients based on anonymous and aggregated data created by people using our service.

We will not share your user information with third parties for promotional purposes. That said, we consider that if you sign up to our service, you do so in the knowledge that content you post publicly will be visible to others. This will include music that you upload, information that you add to your profile and any marketplace advertisements that you post.

 

We will use Google Analytics to compile statistics about user performance (once you have uploaded music), traffic to your profile and sales. We may also compile statistics about user trends on our platform, which are used by third party organisations to better understand how users interact with businesses, brands, and one another online. These statistics are drawn from a dataset which does not contain any information by which you can be identified, and we will not pass on your personal details to third parties for promotional purposes.

How long we intend to keep your information

 

We will keep your data for as long as you have a live profile on our platform. You can delete your profile by contacting us by email at help@amplifytheanthems.com or by accessing your account on the website.

 

If you delete your profile, the data will disappear from our service; however, there will be a period during which your data will be held on our back-up systems. After this, all content which you created on https://www.amplifytheanthems.com will be deleted permanently.

What user information we would like you to give to us

 

We ask you to provide your name, a contact telephone number and email address in order to sign up for our service. You can also sign up by logging into your social media profile. You can change these details once you are logged in to https://www.amplifytheanthems.com by using the settings feature. You can also use the settings feature to provide more user information, at your discretion.

Where we hold your information

 

The information and content held on our platform is deployed geographically to maximise user experience.

 

We hold our data on Melbourne and Amazon AWS, who are contracted to us for the provision of technical services. We remain responsible at all times for the security of your information, but if you want to know more about how we interact with Melbourne and Amazon AWS, you can view their Privacy Policy, amongst their other policies, here http://www.melbourne.co.uk/privacy-policy https://aws.amazon.com/privacy/.

What we do to ensure the security of your personal information

 

We take the security of your data very seriously. Our approach to information security is constantly evolving and continually reviewed.

 

We have adopted industry best practices from both technological and business process perspectives in order to make securing your data a key part of the way we do business.

At the end, we’ve included some links to help you research cookies and their impact, and how you can use your web browser to control the way it manages cookies.

What are cookies?

  • These cookies are an essential part of how our platform operates, and they greatly improve your user experience. Ironically, the banner that you saw the first time you looked at the website alerting you to the use of cookies makes use of a cookie itself, that would not be required were it not for the European Directive on the use of cookies.
  • These cookies are only used by us, and the information they contain is not shared with anyone else.

  • Twitter button – The Twitter button allows our users to more easily share the content they upload to https://www.amplifytheanthems.com with their followers. Twitter privacy policy states they use cookies “to collect additional website usage data and to improve our Services” – https://twitter.com/privacy

            We use Mixpanel to track how effective our pages are in delighting our users, how long users stay with us, and how users navigate through our website. We use the results to continually iterate and improve the user experience you enjoy.
