Privacy Policy

Effective date: November 4, 2017

When you use Listen Notes services, you trust us with your information. This Privacy Policy is meant to help you understand what data we collect, why we collect it, and what we do with it. This is important; we hope you will take time to read it carefully.

Information we collect

We collect information to provide better services to all of our users – from figuring out basic stuff like which language you speak, to more complex things like which ads you’ll find most useful.

We collect information that we get from your use of our services. We collect information about the services that you use and how you use them. This information includes:

  • Device information. We collect device-specific information (such as your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, and mobile network information including phone number).
  • Log information. When you use our services or view content provided by Listen Notes, we automatically collect and store certain information in server logs. This includes:
    • details of how you used our service, such as your search queries.
    • Internet protocol address.
    • browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and referral URL.
    • cookies that may uniquely identify your browser.
  • Location information. When you use Listen Notes services, we may collect and process information about your actual location.

How we use information we collect

We use the information we collect from all of our services to provide, maintain, protect and improve them, to develop new ones, and to protect Listen Notes and our users. We also use this information to offer you tailored content – like giving you more relevant search results and ads.

Will we share information we collect?

We may share information we collect with third parties as described in this below:

  • Analytics: We may use third party analytics services, such as Google Analytics, to grow our business, to improve and develop our Services, to monitor and analyze use of our Services, to aid our technical administration, and to increase the functionality and user-friendliness of our Services. These services may collect and retain some information about you. Google Analytics collects the IP address assigned to you on the date you use the Services, but not your name or other personally identifying information. Although Google Analytics plants a persistent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you use the Services, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your use of the Services is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. You may find additional information about Google Analytics at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. Finally, you can opt out of Google Analytics by visiting https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.
  • Business Transfers: We may choose to buy or sell assets, and may share and/or transfer information in connection with the evaluation of and entry into such transactions. Also, if we (or our assets) are acquired, or if we go out of business, enter bankruptcy, or go through some other change of control, information we collect could be one of the assets transferred to or acquired by a third party.
  • Protection of Listen Notes and Others: We reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information that we believe is necessary to comply with law or court order; enforce or apply our Terms of Services and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Listen Notes, our employees, our users, or others.
