Privacy Policy

We at Spacebar, Inc. (“Spacebar”) know that you take your privacy seriously. We do, too.

We are committed to being transparent about our privacy-related practices and giving you control over your Personal Information (defined below) in connection with your use of Spacebar’s live audio music to mobile device streaming service (the “Service”). You can use the Service if you are a user who wants to listen to music via the service, or if you are a musician or a business that hosts musicians or you are another Spacebar Business Partner (defined below). This Privacy Policy covers Spacebar’s treatment of information that can be used to contact or identify you (“Personal Information”) and other data that Spacebar gathers when you are accessing or using the Service. The Service is for users who are 13 years old or older and if you are younger than 13 years old, you are not permitted to use the Service.

What Personal Information Does Spacebar Collect?

Personal information you provide to us

We receive and store any information you enter on our Service or provide to us in any other way. If you are a Spacebar Business Partner, we will collect your name, email address and phone number, Facebook ID and Twitter ID, and information about the show or performance you provide. The Personal Information you provide is used for such purposes as allowing you to listen to music on the Service, interaction with other users through the Service, improving the content of the Service, customizing the content and any advertising you and others see, and communicating with you about promotions and new features.

Information we collect automatically

When you use the Service, Spacebar automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your mobile platform and the device you use, your mobile device’s unique device ID, your browser, including your location, IP address, cookie information, and the page you requested, music, artists and venues you listen to in the Service (including how you came to find it, how long you listen, and if, whether and how you share your listening experiences with others), and about how you use our Service, and the way you use the Service. We treat this data as non-Personal Information, except where we are required to do otherwise under applicable law. Unless otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy, Spacebar only uses this non-Personal Information in aggregate form. In our mission to help advance the careers and prospects of musicians and other artists, as well as the venues who give them the stage, we may provide aggregate non-Personal Information to our partners (including musicians, bands, managers, promoters, venues and clubs and their managers (collectively “Spacebar Business Partners”)) about how our users, collectively, use our Service. Such data may include trend data, data aggregated around music genres or influences, relative fan attendance and listening behavior, and local, regional, country and global data. We may also draw upon this non-Personal Information in order to modify and improve the Service to your needs, to research the effectiveness of our network and Service, and to develop new tools for the community.

Integration with Facebook and Twitter

Via the Services, you may elect to share your listening behavior, preferences, and other ways you use the Service with others via Twitter and/or Facebook. Depending on your privacy settings on those platforms, such sharing will include your Facebook and/or Twitter usernames and information that you post or share through their platforms or authentication authorizations. Spacebar may share such social media sharing information with Spacebar Business Partners as part of our mission to help them find new fans, supporters and customers. For example, you may elect to “Like” a band’s page on Facebook or “Follow” a band, or some of the artists in a band, on Twitter. Spacebar from time to time will consolidate this “fan” information to benefit Spacebar Business Partners, and the information we provide to our Spacebar Business Partners may include your Facebook and Twitter username and published location(s).

Spacebar may collect real-time location information from your mobile device

When you visit the Service, we may use GPS technology (or other similar technology) to determine your current location in order to determine the city in which you are located. We will share this location information with Spacebar Business Partners on a location map showing where listeners come from. Except with regard to your Facebook and Twitter user names as noted above under “Integration with Facebook and Twitter”, we will not share your identity with such Spacebar Business Partners. If you do not want us to use your location for the purposes set forth above, you may turn off the location services for the mobile application located in your account settings or in your mobile phone settings and/or within the mobile application. You may independently elect to share your identity with our Spacebar Business Partners and other users using social media connections, including Facebook and Twitter, from within the Service.

Information We Receive from Third Parties

We receive and store information from third parties that interact in some way with the Service or that provide services to us in connection with the Service. For example, if you Tweet about a particular band or song, Twitter may tell us information about your message, its time stamp, and its reach. We, in turn, may share that same information with Spacebar Business Partners. In addition, you may choose to use apps that share your Personal Information, activities and/or content with Spacebar. Please read the privacy policy of any such app so that you understand its sharing practices. Spacebar is not responsible for the activities of such third parties.

Your opt-out rights

You can stop all collection of information by Spacebar easily by uninstalling Spacebar and associated applications, such as the audio transmitting application. You may use the standard uninstall processes as may be available as part of your mobile device or via the mobile application marketplace or network.

How is My Information Shared

Personal Information about our users is an integral part of our business. We neither rent nor sell your Personal Information to anyone. Spacebar will share your Personal Information only as described in this Privacy Policy.

Others users of the Service

If you have Facebook or Twitter connected with the Service, users of the Service can see your social media activity according to your Facebook, and Twitter privacy, user and sharing settings. Individuals reading this information may use it or disclose it to other individuals or entities without our control and without your knowledge. We therefore urge you to think carefully about including any specific information you may deem private in comments or other content (location or otherwise) that you create in the Service.

Information Available to Bands & Venues and Other Music Industry Professionals

One of the key purposes of Spacebar is to help users learn about new bands and musicians, and the businesses that host them, their locations, shows and events, and brands that are relevant to them, and for bands and venues to provide information about themselves, their locations, shows and events to users, as well as to potentially offer incentives to fans to visit a show or event through offers and specials. As noted above, we may share with bands aggregated and anonymized data (that is, not tied to individual users) about users who like their band. For example, we may provide a bluegrass band with aggregate information about trends in the same, or other geographical areas, over a particular time span. We may also share or disclose aggregated and anonymous data to third parties for analytical or other purposes. As noted above, if a Spacebar user Likes a band or venue on Facebook, or Follows a band or venue on Twitter, Spacebar will treat such activity as public and the user’s identity and location (as reported on Facebook or Twitter) may be shared with the band and/or venue or other Spacebar Business Partners.

Agents

We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them so that they can provide services to us so that we can provide the Service to you. Our agents do not have any right to use Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us, and they have agreed to provide a comparable level of protection for your Personal Information.

Spacebar Features

The Service includes several features that may allow you to share your information with others. Please remember that if you choose to provide Personal Information using certain features of the Service, that information may be available to the wider Spacebar community, or may be published on the Spacebar website, which is subject to indexing by third party search engines. Sharing with Partners, in connection with business transfers, and for the protection of Spacebar and others

Our Partners

In addition to the data sharing described above, we enter into relationships with a variety of businesses and work closely with them. In certain situations, these businesses provide services to you, sell show admission tickets or other items or provide promotions to you through the Service. You can easily recognize when one of these businesses is associated with your transaction with Spacebar and we will only share your Personal Information with these businesses if you request and understand that we must do so as part of the transaction you have requested of Spacebar.

Business Transfers

Information that we collect from our users, including Personal Information, is considered to be a business asset. As a result, if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy or if we are acquired as a result of a transaction such as a merger, acquisition or asset sale, your PII may be disclosed or transferred to the third-party acquirer in connection with the transaction.

Protection of Spacebar and Others

We may release Personal Information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with the law, including laws outside your country of residence; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Spacebar, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations (including outside of your country of residence) for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
