Security and privacy matter and Drummerszone is committed to safeguarding your personal information. Drummerszone's services are available all over the world but we process your personal information on a server located in the Netherlands. Whenever you provide such information, we are legally obliged to use your information in line with all Dutch and European laws concerning the protection of personal information.
Information we collect
We collect information to provide better services to our audience - from figuring out which language you speak, to things like which topics you'll find most interesting. We collect information in two ways:
Information you give us. For example: when you sign up, we'll ask for some personal information like your name and email address. If you want to take full advantage of the sharing features we offer, we also ask you to create a publicly visible member profile, which may include your name, photos and videos.
2) Information we get from your use of our services. We may collect information about the services that our audience uses and how they use them. This information includes information about the location of our audience, the devices they're using, the language of their browser and the number of pages they visit. This recorded information is non-personally identifiable so that it no longer reflects or references you or any other individually identifiable user.
We may combine personal information from our services with information, including personal information, from other services such as Facebook, for instance to make logging in easier. But we will always ask for your consent before using this information.
Why we use the information collected
In short: we use the information we collect from all of our services to provide, maintain and improve them. When you share information with us, for example by creating a member account, we can make our services even better and offer you tailored content that's more relevant and improve your user experience. For example, by saving your language preferences, we'll be able to show you navigation items and other content in the language you speak. We can serve you more relevant content, personalize updates and help you to easily connect with other drummers.
We may collect and temporary store information locally by sending one or more cookies or anonymous identifiers to your device. Of course, you're free to set your browser to block all cookies. However, it's important to realize that many of our services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. For example, we may not remember your language preferences.
and the external cookies...
If you see ads from Google Ads or another party, well, they will collect everthing and there's nothing we can do about it.
We're thinking about a payed version of Drummerszone.com, though. If that happens, you will only see promotions that are relevant to you only - and no more banners!
Choose from different privacy levels
People have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect, so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used. That's why you can view and edit your communication and privacy preferences, and control what information you share and whom you share it with.
Your personal information will not be shared
We do not share personal information with companies, organizations and individuals outside of Drummerszone unless we have your explicit consent to do so, or unless we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary for legal reasons.
Information we may share
We may share aggregated, non-personally identifiable information with our partners such as advertisers or connected sites, or publicly. For example, we may share information publicly to show trends about the general use of our services.
We go beyond and above to protect Drummerszone and our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information we hold.
Users aged 13 or under
If you are aged 13 or under, please get your parent/guardian's permission before you provide any personal information to Drummerszone. Users without this consent are not allowed to provide us with personal information.
Update and correct your personal information
Whenever you use our services, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is incorrect, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it - unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request.
We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), or risk the privacy of others. Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort.
Access to your personal information
Under the Data Protection Act you have the right to request a copy of the personal information Drummerszone holds about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected. We charge 15 euros for the processing of each information request and require you to prove your identity with two pieces of approved identification. We will use all reasonable efforts to supply or correct personal information about you on our files. Please use our contact information at the end of this policy if you have any requests.
How long we keep your personal information
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with Drummerszone. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.
Drummerszone contains hyperlinks to websites owned and operated by third parties. These third party websites are not managed or controlled by us; they have their own privacy policies and we urge you to review them. We do not accept any responsibility or liability for the privacy practices of such third party websites and your use of such websites is at your own risk.
