We process this information in light of our legitimate interest in improving the Platform and giving our users the best experience, and where it is necessary for the adequate performance of the contract between us and you. Without it, we may not be able to provide you with all the requested services and features of the Platform.

You don’t need to register for a Beat100.com account in order to visit or use our Platform. However, certain Services require that you register for an account and, by doing so, you will need to provide us with certain information:

Account Information - When you register as a user with Beat100.com, you will need to provide your;

  • first name;
  • surname;
  • a display name (a user name which may be a pseudonym);
  • email address;
  • gender;
  • date of birth;
  • nationality;
  • and choose a password. 

In addition, you may choose to provide additional information for your public profile on the Site;

  • your name;
  • your hometown;
  • your nationality;
  • a profile picture, profile header image or avatar;
  • details of your other websites and social media profiles, including links to those pages;
  • your gender;
  • any additional information you provide as part of your public profile, such as your real name, and links to your website and other social media profiles (but not your email address), will be published on your profile page. This information will be publicly accessible and may be viewed by anyone accessing the Site, or using our Services. Please bear this in mind when considering whether to provide any additional information about yourself.

Information You Post - You may provide personal data when you upload videos or audio tracks (‘Content’) to the Platform, or when you post comments, vote or contribute to community discussions.

Information We Collect Automatically

There is certain information that we collect automatically as the result of your use of the Platform, or through the use of cookies and other web analytics services such as Google Analytics. This information generally includes;

  • Usage Information - We collect information about your interactions with the Platform, including the pages that you visit and links you click on, streaming, uploading Content, connecting your Facebook or Twitter account, sharing Content with another user, following or unfollowing another user, joining or leaving a group, posting a comment, performing a search, the time, frequency and duration of your visits to the Platform, and whether you interact with email messages, for example, if you opened, clicked on, or forwarded the email message.
  • Log Data – We automatically collect log information when you use the Platform, even if you have not registered for an account or logged in. That information includes, among other things: details about how you’ve used the Platform (including links to third party sites or services), Internet Protocol (IP) address, access times, your browser type and operating system, device information, device event information (e.g., crashes, browser type), and the page you’ve viewed or engaged with before or after using the Platform.
  • Cookies – We may use cookies and other similar technologies, such as pixels and mobile device identifiers and may also allow our business partners to use these tracking technologies on the Platform, or engage others to track your behaviour on our behalf. 
  • Location Data – When you use certain features of the Platform, we may collect data about your general location (e.g. IP address). We use this data to provide you with location-based services (such as advertising and personalised content). Most mobile devices allow you to control or disable the use of location services for applications in the device’s settings.
  • Device Information – We may collect information from and about the devices you use, including how you interact with the Platform and information about device itself, such as the hardware model, operating system, IP addresses, cookie information, device settings, mobile device and advertising identifiers, browser type, language, time zone.

This information allows us to recognise and associate your activity, and provide personalised content and advertising, consistently across all of your devices.
  • Software Development Kits – We may use third parties including our business partners and service providers who use mobile SDKs to collect information and information related to how mobile devices interact with the Platform. An SDK is computer code that app developers can include in their apps to enable ads to be shown, data to be collected and related services and functionality to be implemented. A mobile SDK is in effect the mobile app version of a pixel tag or beacon. We may use this technology, for instance, to analyse how you interact with content and advertisements and to enable analytics or other features through mobile devices.
  • Beat100.com Widget – Other websites may integrate Beat100.com widgets; when you visit a website with a Beat100.com widget embedded, we may receive certain information, including information about the website you visited.

We explain in more detail why and how we use this information below.

4.   How We Use Your Information

We may use the personal information we collect from you, including with the help of automated systems and decision making, for a range of different business purposes according to different legal bases of processing and subject to the choices you make in your Settings.

  • Provide, Improve, and Develop the Platform
  • To operate and maintain your Beat100.com account, and to provide you with access to and use of the Platform. Your email address and password are used to identify you when you log into the Platform. Your device-IDs may be used to ensure that you are in control of the devices that have access to your account.
  • To identify you as the creator of the Content that you upload, the comments that you post and/or the other contributions that you make to the Platform.
  • To provide creators with stats and insights about users’ activity relating to their Content.
  • We may conduct surveys and research, test features in development, and analyse the information we have to evaluate and improve products and services, develop new features, and conduct audits and troubleshooting activities.
  • If you make a purchase, your name, email address, payment description, payment amount, payment date, time of payment, time zone, transaction reference number and currency type will be used for accounting purposes. 
  • Your email will be used to send you service updates and notifications about your account.
  • To respond to you about any comment or enquiry you have submitted.
  • We use your date of birth to enable age restrictions.

We process this information in light of our legitimate interest in improving the Platform and giving our users the best experience, and where it is necessary for the adequate performance of the contract with you.

  • Maintain a Safe and Secure Environment
  • Detect and prevent fraud, spam, abuse, security incidents, and other suspicious activity.
  • Verify and authenticate your identity and prevent unauthorised or illegal activity.
  • Enhance the safety and security of our products and services.
  • Conduct security investigations and risk assessments.
  • To prevent or take action against activities that are, or may be, in breach of our Terms and Conditions, Guidelines or applicable law.
  • To provide you with customer and technical support.

We process this information in light of our legitimate interest in improving the Platform and giving our users the best experience, and where it is necessary for the adequate performance of the contract with you.

  • Personalise Content, Advertising and Marketing
  • To improve your experience on the Platform by providing personalised content, recommendations, and features.
  • To customise the content and measure performance of any email, push notification, or in-app message we may send to you.
  • Administer competitions, or other promotional activities or events sponsored or managed by Beat100.com or its partners.
  • Use automated systems and decision making to profile user characteristics and infer preferences based on information that you provide to us, your interactions with the Platform and content, your profile information, and information obtained from third parties. This data may be used to create groups of users, called segments, who share similar characteristics and interests; we may use segments to serve personalised content, advertising, and marketing messages. We may also use automated systems to associate your activity over time across devices, and may associate activity and accounts under a single user ID, in order to determine that certain devices are related to each other and provide you with a personalised experience across devices and platforms.
  • To deliver targeted marketing for Beat100 products on and off the Platform and measure the success of those campaigns. When you see our ads on a third party website or apps, we or third party services we engage for this purpose, may collect information that your browser or mobile app makes available when seeing the ad (e.g. IP address, referral URL, browser details, timestamp of request), including whether a click converted to a registration or an actual purchase. Please see the privacy policy of such third party websites to understand what data may be collected and how to opt-out.
  • Ads are more effective when they are shown to people who are likely to be interested in the product or service advertised. For this reason, we may use the information we collect and receive to help us select which ads to show you on behalf of advertisers. This includes information you choose to provide to us (e.g. age and gender) and make available to us when you interact with the Platform, as well as general location data. We may also display ads based on the page you’re on or content you have recently viewed, searched, or listened to. This allows us to show you ads that will likely be more relevant and interesting to you.
  • When we engage third party services such as ad-networks and exchanges that enable us to show you targeted ads, we may also allow them to collect certain information such as cookie data and device identifiers. That information is used to synch or match users to segments and serve targeted advertising, including based on device activity, inferred interests, and general location information.
  • Combine information we collect about you with information from business partners and use it to serve more relevant advertising.
  • We may use your data for other purposes, provided we disclose the purposes and use to you at the relevant time, and provided that you consent to the proposed use of your personal data.

Similarly, if you comment on any Content on the Platform, your comments will be available to all users of the Platform.            
  • Service Providers – We may use a variety of third party service providers, some of who may be located outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”), to provide services to us or to our users on our behalf.

Cookie Policy

This Cookie Policy forms part of our Privacy Policy and should be read together with our Terms and Conditions. 

When you visit or interact with the Platform, we and our service providers may use cookies and other tracking technologies for storing information, including pixels (also known as a “web beacon” or “clear GIFs”), local storage, and device identifiers, to help provide, protect and improve the Platform. For example, to save your preferences, personalise content, target ads based on your interests, combat fraud and abuse, and streamline the functioning of and your access to the Platform.

This policy explains how and why we use these technologies and the choices you have. We use “cookies” and “similar technologies” interchangeably to refer to all of these technologies.

What Are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files placed on your computer, phone, or other device when you visit websites and are used to record information about your activity, including the pages you view, the content you listen to, ads you click on, your settings, and other actions you take on the Platform.

Cookies can be “persistent” or “session” cookies. Persistent cookies stay on your device for a set period of time or until you delete them, while session cookies are deleted once you close your web browser.

Similar Technologies

We use other data collecting technologies with similar functionality as cookies, including pixels, local storage, and device identifiers. While the specific names and types of cookies we use may change from time to time as we improve and update the Platform, we have provided some basic definitions in order to help you better understand this policy.

  • Pixels – A pixel is a small amount of code on a web page or in an email notification that typically work in conjunction with cookies to identify our users and record user behaviour. As many services do, we may use pixels to learn whether you’ve interacted with certain web or email content. This helps us measure and improve our services and personalise your experience.
  • Local Storage – Local storage is an industry-standard technology that allows a website or application to store information locally on your computer or mobile device. We use local storage, including HTML5, to customise what we show you based on your content consumption and other past interactions with the Platform.
  • Device Identifiers – We also use mobile device and advertising identifiers for the same purposes articulated in this policy, for example to recognise your device when you return to the Platform or otherwise use the Platform.
  • Software Development Kits – We may use third parties including our service providers and business partners who use mobile SDKs to collect information to recognise your device when you return to the Platform. We may use this technology, for instance, to analyse how you interact with the Platform, including content and advertisements, and to enable analytics or other features through mobile devices.

How We Use Cookies

While we use cookies to deliver, measure, and improve the Platform in various ways, the cookies we use generally fall into one of the following categories:

  • Operational – These cookies are necessary to allow us to operate the Platform as you have requested. For example, they let us authenticate your account and recognise what type of subscriber you are, so we can provide you with the Platform accordingly.
  • Security/Abuse – These cookies enable and support our security features, and help us detect malicious or unauthorised activity. We also use cookies to combat fraud and other activity that violates our policies or otherwise degrades our ability to provide the Platform. Cookies also help us fight spam and phishing attacks by enabling us to identify computers or devices that are used to create large numbers of fake Beat100.com accounts.
  • Functional/Preferences – These cookies let us operate certain functions of the Platform in line with the choices you make. These cookies enable us to remember you in-between visits. For example, when you continue to use or come back to the Platform, we will recognise your user name and remember your settings and content preferences. Deletion of these types of cookies will result in limited functionality of the Platform.
  • Performance/Analytics – We use these cookies to monitor and assess how the Platform is performing and where it can be improved. For example, we use these cookies to test different versions of our Platform to learn which features or content users prefer. We also use these cookies to analyse how people access and use our Platform. For instance, we may obtain information about your device and how users engage with the Platform or from email newsletters, including whether you opened or forwarded a newsletter or clicked on any of its content. This information tells us about our newsletters’ effectiveness and helps us ensure that we’re delivering information you find interesting.
  • Personalisation/Advertising – These cookies use information about your use of the Platform, such as the pages you visit, the content you listen to, or your response to ads and emails, so we may recommend content and deliver ads that are more relevant and interesting to you based on criteria like your profile and activity on Beat100.com. We may also use these cookies to improve reporting on campaign performance, determine how many times people click on ads before taking an action (such as purchasing products), and avoid repeatedly showing ads the user has already seen.
  • Beat100.com Marketing – We may also work with third party business partners, such as Google Analytics and Facebook to track user activity and market the Platform by showing you personalised ads for Beat100.com products and services on the Platform and third party websites and applications. We may also use cookies to prevent users from seeing ads for any Beat100.com products they have already purchased.
