Privacy and Confidentiality Policy
For Musitechnic.com and Musitechnic Adacemy
We wrote this policy to help you understand what information we collect, how we use it and what choices you have about it. Because we’re an internet company, some of the concepts below are a little technical, but we’ve tried our best to explain things in a simple and clear way.
We collect information in a few different ways:
1. When you give it to us or give us permission to obtain it
- When you sign up (newsletter, Musitechnic Academy, social networks and +) you give us certain information voluntarily. This can include your name, email address, phone number, profile photo, comments, and any other information you give us. You can also choose to share with us location data or photos. If you buy something on Musitechnic Academy, we will connect you to the online payment platforms WooCommerce and PayPal that will receive and treat your payment information, contact information (address and phone number) and details of what you bought.
- You can also give us permission to access provided by other services. If you are a student or graduate of Musitechnic you can use your Musitechnic GSuite account (Alphabet) for Education (also called “online Musitechnic Campus”) and provide us with data from your use of this service (including your location). The information we get from those services depends on your settings and their privacy policies, so please check what those are.
2. We also get technical information when you use our online presences.
- Whenever you use any website, mobile application or other internet service, certain information gets created and logged automatically. The same is true when you use our website (musitechnic.com), Musitechnic Academy, our Youtube Channel and our Facebook page. Here are some of the types of information we collect:
- Log data. When you use Musitechnic Academy or the Musitechnic.com, our servers record information (“log data”), including information that your browser automatically sends whenever you visit a website. This log data includes your Internet Protocol address, the address of and activity on our websites, searches, browser type and settings, the date and time of your request, how you used the web site, cookie data and device data.

In addition to log data, we collect information about the device you’re using our sites on, including type of device, operating system, settings, unique device identifiers and crash data that helps us understand when something breaks. Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on what type of device you’re using and its settings. For example, different types of information are available depending on whether you’re using a Mac or a PC, or an iPhone or Android phone.

3. Our partners and advertisers share information with us
- We also get information about you and your activity outside of our sites from our affiliates, advertisers, partners and other third parties we work with, or other publicly available sources. For example:
- Online advertisers or third parties share information with us to measure or improve the performance of ads, or to figure out what kinds of ads to show you. This includes a list of criterias used by our ads or how many clicks of these ads finish with a purchase or a contact request.
What we do with the info we collect:
- We use the information we collect to provide the service to you, to improve our services, develop new services, maintain our relationship with you, and protect users.
