Privacy Policy

Reviewed: 31 May 2023

Welcome to (the “Site”).

We understand that privacy online is important to you, when browsing, interacting and especially when conducting business online.

This statement governs our privacy policies with respect to users of the Site who visit without transacting business (“Visitors”) and users who register to transact business on the Site and make use of the various products and services we offer (collectively, “Services”) (“Customers”).

In this policy we refer to “Personal Information”. This means any personally identifiable information that identifies or can be used to identify, contact, or locate the person to whom such information pertains, including, but not limited to, name, address, phone number, email address and credit card information. Personal Information does not include information that is collected anonymously (that is, without identification of the individual user) or demographic information not connected to an identified individual.

What Personal Information is collected?
We collect names and email addresses when users join the Afrodrumming Email List and when Visitors make purchases through our store. We will not sell, transfer, or use Personal Information relating to that individual in any way moving forward.

What organizations are collecting the information?
In addition to our direct collection of information, our third party service vendors (such as, but not limited to, Paypal) may collect information from our Visitors and Customers. We do not control how these third parties use such information, but we do require them to disclose how they use personal information. For more on how Paypal processes information, see their privacy policy.

How does the Site use Personal Information?
We use Personal Information to customize the Site, to make appropriate service offerings, and to fulfill buying and selling requests on the Site. We may email Visitors and Customers about research or purchase and selling opportunities on the Site or information related to the subject matter of the Site. We may also use Personal Information to contact Visitors and Customers in response to specific inquiries, or to provide requested information.

With whom may the information may be shared?
Personal Information about Customers is not shared with anyone or any other company. We also offer the opportunity to “opt out” of receiving information or being contacted by us or by any agency acting on our behalf.

How is Personal Information stored?
Personal Information collected by Afrodrumming is securely stored and is not accessible to third parties or employees of the Site except for use as indicated above.

Email Subscription – What choices are available to Visitors regarding collection, use and distribution of the information?

As part of the registration process for our online newsletter, we collect personal information. We use that information for a few reasons: to engage with you, to tell you about stuff you’ve asked us to tell you about and to deliver free files and content; to contact you or offer support if needed; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organizations and businesses.

We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing our data protection officer Al Paton.
