How We Disclose Information

SingersBabel is committed to maintaining your trust. We want you to understand when and with whom we may share information about you that is collected through our Services.

  • Authorized service providers. We may share any information we collect with service providers who provide us with specialized services or otherwise help us operate our Services including, without limitation, service providers that provide customer support, email deployment, account sign-in services, payment processing, order fulfillment, analytics, marketing, suppression list management, and data processing services.

  • Protect our Services and users. We may disclose any collected information to enforce our Terms of Use and to protect and defend the legal rights, interests, and safety of SingersBabel, our respective employees, agents, contractors, and users, members of the general public, or others.
  • Wireless carriers. Wireless carriers also may collect contact and other information and precise location data from our mobile services users through processes we do not control. You should check the privacy policies of your wireless carriers for additional information.
  • Bitly. SingersBabel uses a service called Bitly to create shortened uniform resource locators ("URLs" – the "addresses" of individual web pages) for our content so that it can be shared easily, particularly through social media. Bitly collects information as our shortened URLs are shared and clicked on, including IP addresses, general location information, the time and day each shortened URL is accessed, and the social media or other channels through which our content is shared. If you have established a separate account with Bitly, Bitly may associate the foregoing information with personal information it has stored in your Bitly account in accordance with Bitly's own privacy policy. To share our content without using Bitly, copy the full URL of the work you want to share from your browser and paste it into your email, text or social media message.

  • Don't volunteer information. If you do not consent to the collection, use or sharing of your contact and other information as described in this Privacy Policy, please do not use the SingersBabel Services or provide information to us.

  • Registration information. Contact us to correct or update any registration information you provided to us, opt out of future email newsletters from us, or cancel your SingersBabel account, SingersBabel newsletter subscription, or other SingersBabel registrations. For your protection, we may only act on requests with respect to the registration data associated with the particular email address that you use to send us your request, and we may ask you to verify your identity before implementing your request.

Note that if you disable or delete cookies, you may lose access to certain features of the SingersBabel Services.

 

Security

We employ physical, electronic, and managerial safeguards in an effort to secure the information we collect. These safeguards vary based on the sensitivity of the information. Because no security system is impenetrable, however, we cannot guarantee the security of our databases or that information you supply will never be intercepted, accessed, or disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Policy. Because most email and mobile transmissions are not encrypted, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email, text messages, or other mobile transmissions.

Our Services may contain links to other sites, applications, platforms and services operated by third parties whose privacy policies we don't control and may differ significantly from ours. For instance, clicking or tapping on a credit or a third-party logo on the SingersBabel Services will take you to an entirely different site or service that may collect, use and share information in ways that SingersBabel would not. You also may access SingersBabel content and the SingersBabel Services from a third-party site or service that may collect, use and share information in ways that SingersBabel would not. SingersBabel is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of these third-party services and we recommend that you familiarize yourself with the privacy policies of any such sites or services you visit or access.
