Privacy Policy

Introduction

At ChoirCommunity, we’re committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.

This Policy explains when and why we collect personal information about people who visit our website, how we use it, the conditions under which we may disclose it to others and how we keep it secure.

We may change this Policy from time to time so please check this page occasionally to ensure that you’re happy with any changes. By using our website, you’re agreeing to be bound by this Policy.

Any questions regarding this Policy and our privacy practices should be sent by email to admin@choircommunity.net, or by using the contact form available in the main menu of the website.

The Information We Process

There are two ways in which we collect information about you when you interact with our website; the first is when you sign-up to join our mailing list.  This requires just your name and email address and will result in us sending regular update emails about the site and the music available.

The second ways is when you register on the site itself.  This requires more details such as your name and address and information about your choir.  We use this information to tailor some of the ways in which the website works (for example, we have to restrict the sale of certain titles due to geographical rights clearances) and to ensure we are able to develop the site in the way choirs want to use it.

The information is held as long as you are registered on the site as an active or potential customer.

We will not sell or rent your information to any third parties and we will not share your information to third parties for marketing purposes.

What we do with the data

We only use the information we collect where it is necessary to carry out the business activities of ChoirCommunity.  This may include:

  • Offering new services and musical arrangements when they become available
  • Keeping you in touch with our progress and plans
  • Processing orders that you have submitted

In order to carry out our business effectively, we may share your information with third party service providers to help with specific business processes.  However, when we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service and we will always ensure that the third party is acting in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation in the same way that we are.

Your Rights

We want to make sure you are aware of your rights in relation to the personal information we process about you.  We have described those rights and the circumstances in which they apply below.

If you wish to exercise any of these rights, if you have any queries about how we use your personal information that are not answered here, or if you wish to complain to our Data Protection Officer, please contact us by email to admin@choircommunity.net, or by using the contact form available in the main menu of the website.

Access to your personal information

You have a right to get access to the personal information we hold about you.  If you would like a copy of the personal information we hold, please contact us by email to admin@choircommunity.net, or by using the contact form available in the main menu of the website.

You may request that this information is provided to you in a portable form (e.g. a .csv file).  If you so, please indicate this when you contact us and we will comply with the request.

Change inaccurate personal information

You can access your user account which holds all the information we hold about you directly on the website at this address https://www.choircommunity.net/edit-profile/ .  Alternatively, you can ask us to correct any information on your behalf by contacting us by email at admin@choircommunity.net, or by using the contact form available in the main menu of the website.

Request to delete your information

Also referred to as the right to be forgotten, you may request that we delete your personal information from our systems.  Please contact us by email to admin@choircommunity.net, or by using the contact form available in the main menu of the website to do this.

Cookies

Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to “remember” you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a “session cookie”) or for multiple repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as “first party cookies”), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website (“third party cookies”).

Both websites and HTML emails may also contain other tracking technologies such as “web beacons” or “pixels.” These are typically small transparent images that provide us with statistics, for similar purposes as cookies. They are often used in conjunction with cookies, though they are not stored on your computer in the same way. As a result, if you disable cookies, web beacons may still load, but their functionality will be restricted.

How we use cookies

We don’t use cookies for any specific purposes at ChoirCommunity, but some of the ‘plugins’ we use to deliver our services will use cookies do carry out functions such as ‘remembering’ you from the last time you visited.

Controlling Cookies

Visitors may wish to restrict the use of cookies or completely prevent them from being set. Most browsers provide for ways to control cookie behavior such as the length of time they are stored – either through built-in functionality or by utilizing third party plugins. If you disable cookies, please be aware that some of the features of our service may not function correctly.
