Information You Provide To Us
We collect information you voluntarily provide to us. For example, certain portions of our sites may require that you submit personal information, such as your name and email address, before using those portions of the site. You are also required to register with our sites and provide your name or email address before using any of the “members only” areas of our sites. For some services, such as forums, blogs, customer support features, registering products, for events or contests, downloading software or uploading content, you may have to create an account and submit additional personal information such as your mailing address.
Some of our websites allow you to purchase hardware and/or software products. If you choose to make a purchase, you must provide certain payment information, including your name, credit or debit card number, card expiration date, CVV code, and billing address. This information is encrypted and sent to your card network, which upon approval sends back to our website a token, which is a set of random digits for engaging in transactions without exposing your card number. We do not store your payment information. We store your shipping address to fulfill your order. Note that third-party payment processors may retain this information in accordance with their own privacy policies and terms.
Information Collected Automatically
Information Obtained From Other Sources
Information Of Children
While not intended for, nor targeted to children, some of inMusic’s applications and websites may appeal to children under the age of eighteen. We do not knowingly request or collect data from children under eighteen unless we have the consent of a parent or guardian. We encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children and to participate in the interactive activities offered on the sites their children visit. If a parent or guardian notifies us or we otherwise learn that a child under eighteen has improperly registered or submitted information, we will immediately cancel the child’s account and delete all personal information of that child from our records.
To assist you in understanding when and how inMusic may collect information, outlined below are situations when we potentially collect personal information from you:
Learning About inMusic And Its Brands
inMusic markets and sells a broad range of products for all skill levels from beginner to professional. Understandably, customers and prospective customers may want to learn more about inMusic’s products. In certain circumstances, in addition to us collecting information via cookies and similar technologies, you may voluntarily provide personal information, such as your name and email address. We use this information to provide updates about product offering, events, contests and other news that customers typically wish to receive.
Buying Our Products
Many of our websites offer a “Buy Now” feature for certain products. To complete any purchase, we collect your name, phone number, email address, delivery and shipping address(es), and payment information. We use this information to complete your transaction, send you order/shipment/delivery notifications and address any other matters related to your purchase. Note that we never store payment or credit card information. We only use payment information to complete your purchase.
Registering Your Products
To install any bundled software and download important updates, you will need to register your product. During the registration process, you will be required to set up an account (if a new customer) and link your product to your new or existing account. The account set up requires you to enter personal information such as your name, phone number, email address, location data, your password and IP address. We collect your password only for authentication and account access. We use this information to ensure your product is set up properly and to ensure you receive product notices.
Getting Help From Us
You may occasionally contact our Customer Support group for product assistance. To provide the best service to you, we may collect contact information such as your name, email address, phone number and the content of our communications (including chats and voice recordings if you contact us by phone). We may also collect diagnostic information about your product(s), in which case we will notify you specifically in advance. We use this information to provide the highest quality and efficient customer support. Contact information is used to respond to you in your preferred method and to ensure delivery of any product returns or exchanges.

We use data to develop and improve our products and services, including improving performance, developing and adding new features or capabilities.
Order Fulfilment and Service Information

Communications and Marketing
Aggregation and Use of Anonymous Data
inMusic aggregates information provided by you to create anonymous statistical and demographic data. This anonymous data helps inMusic to understand and know its customer base better. That anonymous data may be provided to third parties but never in such a fashion as to identify you personally.
inMusic does not sell your personal information. We only disclose your data as described below.
Public Forums for User Materials
Certain portions of our sites are designed to offer you the opportunity to post information on our sites, including but not limited to information about yourself. You should always remember that publicly displayed information is public. For example, you may be permitted to post your resume information, a video you have created, or to post messages in any chat rooms, message boards, mailing lists, and news groups our sites make available to its users. If you use a forum, bulletin board or chat room on an inMusic website, you should be aware that any information you share is visible to other users. Personally identifiable information you submit to one of these forums can be read, collected, or used by other individuals to send you unsolicited messages. inMusic is not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums.
inMusic-Controlled Affiliates And Subsidiaries
We share information with inMusic-controlled affiliates and subsidiaries for business purposes such as internal administration, promoting inMusic products and providing customers with our products and services.
Law Enforcement And Other Compelled Disclosure
Sharing And Disclosure Of Aggregate Data
inMusic may share data with third parties in aggregate form or in a form which does not enable the recipient of such data to identify you for analysis purposes.
inMusic Links to Other Sites and Advertising
From time to time, inMusic may make online surveys available to users of our sites. Participation in those surveys is voluntary. Some online surveys may ask participants for personal information, such as an email address, in addition to requesting answers to survey questions. inMusic may use that personal information to contact the participant if necessary, or as otherwise described above. inMusic may make the results of any survey publicly available, although inMusic will not attribute any particular response to you without your permission.
On occasion, inMusic may make available to users of our sites, contests, sweepstakes, or similar events in which they may qualify for participation. Participation is always voluntary and subject to the applicable rules. The rules may ask participants to provide personal information as a condition of participation. inMusic may also make the winner’s names public, as provided in the applicable rules, or as required by law. inMusic may also use that information as described above. In some instances, the applicable rules may contain additional or different uses for the information you provide; please be sure to review those rules carefully before entering.
We rely on certain legal bases to use your personal information. Specifically:
We may use your personal information when you explicitly and clearly tell us we can.
Performance of a contract
The use of your personal information may be necessary to perform the agreement you have with us. For example, to complete your purchase of your product, to register and maintain your account, to help with delivery issues, to handle returns, to register your product and to make sure that your product performs its basic functions in a secure way or to respond to your requests.
We may use your personal information for our legitimate interests. For example, we rely on our legitimate interest to analyze and improve our products and services and the content on our websites and app, to send you notifications about software updates or information about our products and services or to use your personal information for administrative, fraud detection or legal purposes.
Where we process your personal information based on our legitimate interest and no opt-out mechanism is available to you, you may exercise your right to object by sending an email to email@example.com.
While inMusic is committed to protecting the security of your information, no security system is perfect. inMusic employs a variety of reasonable and appropriate technical and organizational measures and industry standards to protect against the loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction of the information under our control. Since our sites under general usage do not collect financial information, inMusic uses the standard internet connections for those general usage portions of the site, without secured sockets.
In some cases, you may be prompted to register with our sites to undertake a particular site activity or obtain a particular service. As part of that registration, you may be asked to choose your own password. inMusic reminds you to protect your password, and not provide it to others to use. Allowing others to access and use your account and password can compromise the security of your information. inMusic disclaims any responsibility or obligation for your decision to provide your password to others. Please alert us immediately if you believe your password has been misused. Additionally, always log out and close your browser when you finish your session. Please note, we will never ask you to disclose your password.
Personal data collected by inMusic may be stored and processed in your region, in the United States, or in any other country where inMusic or its affiliates, subsidiaries or service providers are located or maintain facilities. inMusic has put in place adequate mechanisms to protect personal information when it is transferred internationally, for example by using the Standard Contractual Clauses as approved by the European Commission.
You are in control of how your personal information is used by us. Subject to local law, you can do this in the following ways:
- you can ask us for a copy of the personal information we hold about you;
- you can inform us of any changes to your personal information, or if you want us to correct any of the personal information we hold about you;
- you can ask us to erase, block or restrict the personal information we hold about you, or object to particular ways in which we are using your personal information; and
- in certain situations, you can also ask us to send the personal information you have given us to a third party.
Where we are using your personal information on the basis of your consent, you are entitled to withdraw that consent at any time. Moreover, where we process your personal information based on legitimate interest or the public interest, you have the right to object at any time to that use of your personal information.
We rely on you to ensure that your personal information is complete, accurate and current. Please inform us promptly of any changes to, or inaccuracies of, your personal information by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will respond to your request as soon as possible but certainly within 30 days. We are committed to working with you to obtain a fair resolution of any complaint or concern you may have about our use of your personal information. If, however, you believe that we have not been able to assist with your complaint or concern, you may have the right to lodge a complaint with the data protection authority in your country (if one exists in your country) or supervisory authority.
If you wish to access, edit or remove profile information, change your password, close your account or request deletion of your personal data, you can do it by logging in to your account or sending an email to email@example.com. If you cannot access certain personal information collected by us via your account or directly via the product that you use, you can always contact us by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond to any request to access or delete your personal data as soon as possible but certainly within 30 days.
Your Communication, Marketing and Advertising Preferences
Typically, you agree to receive communications when you submit information to our sites. You can opt out of receiving direct marketing communications from inMusic by following the instructions included in every email sent to you via the “Unsubscribe” tab. You can also opt out of email subscriptions by updating your profile and contact options in your account. You can always email our webmaster or customer support team to be removed. We respect your choice, and we will stop sending you promotional emails once you unsubscribe or change your communication settings.
Please note, regardless of your communication settings, we will continue to communicate with you regarding changes to terms and conditions, policy updates, product software updates, routine customer service messages such as information about current or past purchase, delivery of products, service interruptions, data breaches or other significant information about a product you own such as discontinuation of support or safety issues.
A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your device (e.g. your phone or your computer). For example, a cookie could allow us to recognize your browser, while another could store your preferences.
Generally speaking, you may visit our sites while remaining anonymous and not revealing any personal information.
Our websites automatically log your IP address and domain name, and non-personal information such as the type of web browser you use, to help us administer the sites and to compile statistics such as the number of visitors.
It is not possible for a cookie stored by us to be read by any other company's website, nor can a cookie read information from your computer that you have not already provided to us.
Why inMusic Uses These Technologies
We use these technologies for a number of purposes, such as:
- To enable you to use and access inMusic’s websites.
- To enable, facilitate and streamline the functioning of and your access to the inMusic websites.
- To better understand how you navigate through and interact with the inMusic websites and to improve the inMusic websites.
- To serve you tailored advertising.
- To show you content (e.g., advertisements) that is more relevant to you.

- For purposes of our own customer support, analytics, research, product development, and regulatory compliance.
We may also allow certain business partners to place these technologies on the inMusic websites. These partners use these technologies to (1) help us analyze how you use the inMusic websites, such as by noting the third-party services from which you arrived, (2) market and advertise inMusic products and services to you on the inMusic websites and third-party websites, (3) help us detect or prevent fraud or conduct risk assessments, or (4) collect information about your activities on the inMusic websites, other sites, and/or the ads you have clicked on. For example, to help us better understand how people use the inMusic websites, we work with a number of analytics partners, including Google Analytics. To prevent Google Analytics from using your information for analytics, you may install the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser by clicking here.
Targeting and advertising cookies we use may include Google, and other advertising networks and services we use from time to time. For more information about targeting and advertising cookies and how you can opt out, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s opt-out page, the Digital Advertising Alliance’s opt-out page, or http://youronlinechoices.eu. To opt out of Google Analytics for display advertising or customize Google display network ads, you can visit the Google Ads Settings page. To the extent advertising technology is integrated into the inMusic websites and you opt-out of tailored advertising, you may still receive advertising content. In that case, the advertising content will just not be tailored to your interests. Also, we do not control any of these opt-out links and are not responsible for the availability or accuracy of these mechanisms.
Third Party Social Plugins
The inMusic websites may use social plugins provided and operated by third parties, such as Facebook’s Like Button. As a result of this, you may send to the third party the information that you are viewing on a certain part of the inMusic websites. If you are not logged into your account with the third party, then the third party may not know your identity. If you are logged in to your account with the third party, then the third party may be able to link information or actions about your interactions with the inMusic websites to your account with them. Please refer to the third party’s privacy policies to learn more about its data practices.
Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can modify your browser setting to decline cookies by visiting the Help portion of your browser’s toolbar.
Flash cookies operate differently than browser cookies, and cookie management tools available in a web browser will not remove flash cookies. To learn more about how to manage flash cookies, you can visit the Adobe website and make changes at the Global Privacy Settings Panel.
Your mobile device may allow you to control cookies through its settings function. Refer to your device manufacturer’s instructions for more information.
If you choose to decline cookies, some parts of the inMusic websites may not work as intended or may not work at all.
We operate internationally and transfer information to the United States and other countries for the purposes described in this policy.
The United States, European Economic Area (“EEA”) Member States, and other countries all have different laws. When your information is moved from your home country to another country, the laws and rules that protect your personal information in the country to which your information is transferred may be different from those in the country in which you live. For example, the circumstances in which law enforcement can access personal information may vary from country to country. In particular, if your information is in the US, it may be accessed by government authorities in accordance with US law.
To the extent that inMusic is deemed to transfer personal information outside of the EEA, we rely separately, alternatively, and independently on the following legal bases to transfer your information:
The European Commission has adopted standard contractual clauses (also known as Model Clauses), which provide safeguards for personal information that is transferred outside of Europe. We often use these Model Clauses when transferring personal information outside of Europe. You can request a copy of our Model Clauses by emailing email@example.com.
inMusic does not participate in Privacy Shield at this time. However, inMusic Europe may rely on the EU-US Privacy Shield to transfer personal information to some of our third-party service providers in the United States, where they are certified to receive such information under the Privacy Shield Program.
Necessary for the performance of the contract
If you have any questions about this privacy statement, the practices of this site, or your dealings with this site, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
