Irrupt’s Privacy and Cookie Policy

Privacy and Cookie Policy v 12.12.2015

This Privacy Policy describes the kinds of information that Audio Samurai, LLC ("we") may collect about you through our website irrupt.com, and other sites we own or control where this Policy appears (the "Sites"), and what we may do with that information. We reserve the right to modify this Policy at any time by posting the updated version here and changing the "version" date above. Therefore, please check this page for updates whenever you visit any of our Sites, and we may also elect to notify our registered users of material changes via e-mail or other means. This Policy does not apply to information that may be collected off-line.

By visiting or registering at one or more of the Sites, you acknowledge that you have read, understand and agree to be bound by this Policy as it may be amended from time to time, and to our collection, transfer (if applicable), storage and processing of your information in the United States of America. If you do not agree to these terms, please navigate away from the Site and do not register, make any purchases or provide us with any personal information about you.

What information do we collect?

We generally collect two kinds of information through the Site: "personal information" about you which you provide to us, and "non-personal information" about you, your computer and technology, and your use of the Sites, which alone doesn't identify you personally.

In order for you to become a registered user, make purchases from, or sell content through our Sites, you will need to provide us with certain personal information, such as your name, business name if applicable, e-mail address, street address and telephone number during the registration process. For online purchases or sales, we will also require your Paypal email address or alternatively, credit or debit card number, expiration date, billing address and related details in order to process payments.

We may also collect non-personal information from visitors and registered users of the Sites. We may ask you to provide some of that information yourself, such as your musical preferences, or your purchasing, listening habits. Other technical, geographic and usage data and information we may collect directly, such as your browser type, ISP, operating system, log and Site usage data, IP address, zip code or location, the pages you visit and music or other content that you listen to or access while on the Sites, websites you've visited upon entering or leaving the Sites, and if you purchase or sell content through the Sites we will keep track of those purchases and/or sales. Such information may be combined with your personal information.

If you contact or communicate with us or our representatives by e-mail or through the Sites, or if you post any information on any forums, chat rooms, profile pages, feedback, customer service or other portions of the Sites, we may collect, retain and use any information that you provide.

Do we use "cookies" or "web beacons"?

We do use "session cookies" to collect Site usage data and to improve your experience on the Sites and our service generally. A “session cookie” expires once you close your browser.  Session cookies permit the Sites to keep track of your movement from page to page so you don't get requests for the same information that you have already provided to the Sites.   By using our Sites, you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device.  We do not use any other types of cookies or web beacons

 Does Irrupt engage in targeted advertising?

We do not engage in targeting advertising at this time.  This part of the Policy may change in the future so if this matter is a concern to you, please check this Policy page regularly to be notified of any such changes.

What do we do with the information we collect?

Our main use for the personal information we collect is to process your registration, purchases and payments, and to maintain your account on an ongoing basis.

We may also use your personal and non-personal information to enhance your experience with the Sites and our service, such as sending you e-mails and otherwise providing you with other information, content and material in which we believe you might be interested; fulfilling your orders; providing customer service and responding to your questions and comments; or contacting you about your account or about our and our partners' promotions, contests, surveys, or other promotions.   By creating any account with us, you are consenting to our future communications with you via email, social media or other modes of communication.  You may unsubscribe from our communications to you at any time by clicking the 'unsubscribe' link found at the bottom of each communication.

We may use information learned from cookies to make sure that our content and emails are in a format that you can read, to analyze trends about which Sites, content and e-mails are popular and are being read and/or forwarded, to maintain a history of e-mail activity, and to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of certain communications.

Your feedback and other information will also be used to evaluate and enhance our Sites and service. For example, we may analyze the traffic and usage of our Site; the participation rate of our various promotions, offerings, e-mails, and other programs; and the popularity of our content, artists, and participating suppliers. We may also use that information for product development purposes, such as determining what other labels, artists, products and services our users are interested in, and for technical purposes such as monitoring the functionality of our servers and e-mail systems.

Do we share the information we collect with third parties?

We will share the information we collect with the trusted third party service providers we utilize to perform various functions for our business such as payment processing, hosting and maintaining our servers and the Sites, database storage and management, ecommerce solutions, email communications management, order processing, customer management, and other similar business services now known or hereinafter developed. We may share the information that we collect, both personal and non-personal, with third parties such as contest sponsors, promotional and marketing partners. We may also share it with our current and future affiliated companies and business partners, and if we are involved in a merger, asset sale or other business reorganization, we may also share or transfer your personal and non-personal information to our successors-in-interest.

We may also disclose personal and non-personal information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate in order to respond to claims, legal process (including subpoenas), to protect our rights and interests or those of a third party, the safety of the public or any person, to prevent or stop any illegal, unethical, or legally actionable activity, or to otherwise comply with applicable court orders, laws, rules and regulations.

Is your information secure?

We employ administrative, physical, and electronic measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access. All credit transactions occur in a secure area of the Site using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software to process orders, which encrypts the information you input on the Site. For the storage and processing of credit card information, we engage a third party certified as compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

In addition, all personal user information is stored behind a firewall with limited administrative access. However, please be aware that despite our best efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable.

Does this Policy apply to any other sites or services?

The Sites may contain links to the websites associated with other third parties. Links, advertisements, promotions, or other mentions do not constitute our endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with any third party, or of their products or services.

Third party sites have their own privacy and data protection policies and practices, and may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, and collect or solicit both personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information from you under rules different from this Policy. We do not control other sites, companies or persons and can't be responsible for your experience once you leave our Sites. Therefore, we strongly encourage you to carefully read the privacy policies, terms of use and other policies of other sites you visit. Clicking on a third-party link is done at your own discretion and risk. By clicking on a third-party link, you understand that you will be solely responsible for any loss or damage that may result from such activities.

What is our policy regarding children's information?

Our Sites, products and services are not intended for, and we do not knowingly accept registration or collect personally identifiable information from, engage in financial transactions with, or otherwise transact with, children under 13 years old. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with personal identifiable Information, we will delete it from our files. If parents or legal guardians become aware that their under-13s have provided us with personally identifiable information without their consent (or that we have otherwise collected or obtained such information), they should contact us at support@irrupt.com.

If you are between the ages of 13 and 18, or otherwise below the age of legal majority where you live, you must obtain permission from your parent or legal guardian before registering with one or more of the Sites, using a credit card or providing any information about themselves to us or anyone else over the Internet.

Where do we store and use your information?

We collect, store and process the information we collect in the United States of America and United Kingdom. If you are outside the U.S. or U.K., then your personal and non-personal information may be transferred to the U.S. or U.K.
