This Policy applies to the Kanjian Services except where a different privacy policy is posted (e.g., the classic service at www.Kanjian.com and related classic mobile applications), in which case the posted policy applies. The Kanjian Services are hosted in the United States.

  2. Scope Of This Policy

    This Policy describes generally how we collect, use, store and share information that we receive from users of Kanjian Services ("Users"). This Policy applies both to individuals using such services that register with Kanjian and create Kanjian Accounts and their associated Profile(s) ("Members"), as well as individuals who use such Kanjian Services without registering ("Visitors").

    This Policy covers the activities of Kanjian with respect to the collection, use, storage and disclosure of information through any of the Kanjian Services that contain a link to this Policy. The activities of third parties or SNT affiliates that provide services (including advertising services) to Kanjian, or that you link to from us, or that may collect information about you themselves or that we may share your information with, including our affiliates , are governed by the respective privacy policies of those third parties or SNT affiliates.

    Please note that this Policy does not limit Kanjian's use or sharing of aggregated, de-identified or other anonymized information that does not constitute Personal Information (as defined below). We may use and/or share such information in any manner not otherwise prohibited by this Policy, without notice or compensation to you, including freely disclosing for any legal purpose non-Personal Information to SNT affiliates, advertisers, partners, content owners, and other third parties.

    We will continue to evaluate and update this Policy as we rollout additional services for our Users, employ new technologies and otherwise adapt and improve along with the evolving online and digital world so we recommend that you check for changes regularly. We welcome your comments, as we strive to maintain a Policy that is both transparent and that improves the Kanjian Services.

    To the extent that we provide you notice on any of the Kanjian Services of different or additional privacy policies or practices (e.g., at the point of our collection), those additional terms shall govern such data collection and use.

    In addition, please review Kanjian Services' Terms of Use, which governs your use of Kanjian Services.

  3. The Information That We Collect

    1. Information You Provide To Us

      Personal Information And Demographic Information

      We may ask you to provide us with certain information when you interact with the Kanjian Services. This information can generally be grouped into two main categories - Personal Information and Demographic Information.

      Information that identifies you as a particular individual is referred to in this Policy as "Personal Information." This would include your full name, e-mail address, telephone number and street address. Please note that the term Personal Information does NOT include Kanjian IDs or Device Identifiers (as such terms are defined below), except to the extent that they are combined with other forms of Personal Information that we have collected directly from you on the Kanjian Services. The term "Demographic Information" refers to information about groups or particular types of individuals that access the Kanjian Services. Demographic Information does not directly identify you as a specific individual, and would include information such as your age, gender, marital status, income level, and zip code.

      We collect Personal Information and Demographic Information through the Kanjian Services when you choose to provide us with such information, for example, when you register to become a Member. We may also collect Personal Information and/or Demographic Information through a variety of other methods, including when you elect to contact us, submit Profile Content or otherwise interact with the Kanjian Services.

      Registration Information

      Certain features of the Kanjian Services are only accessible by Members who have registered with Kanjian and created a Kanjian account ("Account"). In order to do so, you must first complete a registration form that requests certain basic registration information from you, such as your full name, e-mail address, date of birth, and gender (collectively, "Registration Information"). Please note that the Registration Information requested by Kanjian may include both Personal Information and Demographic Information.

      Profile Content

      When you sign up as a Member, you are required to create one or more Kanjian profiles that are associated with your Account (each, a "Profile"). Kanjian may allow you to populate your Profile with certain content chosen by you, and we may also associate additional content with your Profile based on your interactions with the Kanjian Services, such as your video viewing and other related activities (collectively, "Profile Content"). Any Profile Content that Kanjian allows you to submit must comply with the restrictions set forth in our Terms of Use at all times. Please note that your Profile Content may contain Registration Information.

      The information in your Profile Content is grouped into two main categories – Restricted Information.

      "Restricted Information" refers to those portions of the Profile Content and Activity Notifications associated with your Profile to which you may elect to restrict access by changing the Profile settings that Kanjian may make available to you from time-to-time ("Profile Settings") or by changing other functionality specific settings on the Kanjian Services. These Profile Settings may permit you to create a "Restricted Profile" by choosing to enable certain (but not absolute) limitations on the availability of certain aspects of your Profile that are not Public Information, certain associated Profile Content, and some of the notifications that Kanjian produces regarding your activities ("Activity Notifications"). Further, unless otherwise provided by Kanjian, all of your Profile Content and Activity Notifications will still be available to the Profiles that you allow to connect to you. Please note you are currently unable to restrict access to Public Information, which can always be viewed, accessed, and used by anyone with access to the Kanjian Services, including via third party search engines.

      "Public Information" refers to the portion of your Profile Content that can always be viewed, accessed, and used by anyone with access to the Kanjian Services (e.g., Kanjian, other Users, search engines, advertisers, application developers, other third parties, etc.). Any Profile Content that does not otherwise constitute Restricted Information is considered Public Information for the purposes of this Policy. At a minimum, Public Information includes your:

      • Full Name
      • Username
      • Profile URL
      • About Me (the portion of your Profile that provides a place to describe yourself)
      • Profile Photo
      • Profile Cover
      • Stated Location
      • Gender
      • Age
      • Kanjian IDs

      Public Information also includes:

      Any additional Profile Content associated with a "Public Profile," which refers to any Profile for which a User has set the Profile's visibility status to "Public" in his or her Profile Settings, but subject to Mix privacy settings (as further defined);
      Activity Notifications published on the Kanjian Services from Public Profiles;
      Your status as a "Top Fan";
      Affinity Information (e.g. the relative magnitude of your affinity for Profiles and content) and The number of your connections in and connections out.

      You should be aware that the default setting for Profiles of Members who indicate that they are 18 years of age or older is public (i.e Public Profiles). The default setting for Profiles of Members who indicate that they are under 18 years of age is restricted (i.e Restricted Profiles), other than for Artist Profiles (as defined in the Terms of Use) of Members who are under 18 years of age, which are public by default. Other than with respect to Artist Profiles, whose visibility status may not be changed, you may change the visibility status of your Profile from a Public Profile to a Restricted Profile at any time by visiting Profile Settings. Please note, however, that Activity Notifications that were created during the time that your Profile was a Public Profile shall remain public after any change to a Restricted Profile.

      Although access to Restricted Information will be limited as set forth above, it is important to note that if you share such information with others, they may copy that information or share it with others, including with the public. Kanjian is not responsible for the actions of those with whom you choose to share your Restricted Information. For example, you may choose to use the Kanjian Services to access content pages, which are those pages that, for example, represent an individual item of content such as video or audio, or a collection of content such as audio tracks (i.e., "Mixes$quot;). When you decide to post content, comments, or other materials to another Member's Profile, a Content Page, or elsewhere on the Kanjian Services, that information will be disclosed, and available to third parties consistent with the visibility settings for the relevant Profile or content, even if those settings are inconsistent with your own Profile Settings. Content Pages are generally publicly available, which means that posts that you make on those pages will likely be available to anyone. In addition, your video viewing or audio selections may be part of your Profile Content as well as any content pages that you view. Similarly, if you connect to a Public Profile, the fact that you have connected to that Public Profile will be available to anybody with access to the Kanjian Services.

      The Profile Settings that Kanjian makes available to Members, as well as their functionality, may change as the Kanjian Services continue to evolve. We will provide reasonable advance notice of the changes in the Profile Settings section, or otherwise. Delays and errors in effecting Profile Setting preferences may occur and we do not represent that they will be immediate, complete, error-free, current, reliable or accurate. If you experience any problems with your Profile Settings, or have any questions or concerns regarding your Profile Settings, or you are interested in obtaining additional information regarding the settings options that may be available to you, please contact us at the Help Site.

      The Kanjian Services may allow messaging between Members. More information about who can message whom is available here. More detailed information about Kanjian's Profile Settings is available.

      Account ID And Profile ID

      When you create an Account, Kanjian assigns an "Account ID" to identify and organize information relating to your Account and a "Profile ID" for each Profile associated with an Account (collectively, your "Kanjian IDs"). The Profile ID may allow Kanjian to provide a unique internet URL for your Profile ("Profile URL"). As described above, Kanjian IDs and/or Profile URLs constitute Public Information and may therefore be viewed, accessed, and/or used by anyone with access to the Kanjian Services. You cannot restrict access to Public Information through your Profile Settings.

    2. Information We Collect Or Store As You Access And Use The Kanjian Services
      In addition to the information that you choose to submit to us via the Kanjian Services, we and our third-party service providers may also collect certain information about you automatically, including through the use of various technologies that passively store or collect certain information whenever you interact with the Kanjian Services. This may include information about the nature of a User's interactions with the Kanjian Services, such as his or her media consumption activities ("Usage Information"). Usage Information may be stored or accessed using a variety of technologies including cookies, web beacons, embedded scripts, entity tags and other similar technologies whether now or later devised (collectively "Web Technologies"), some of which may be downloaded to the computer or other Device. The Usage Information that we collect may be non identifying or it may be associated with you, your Account, and your Profile(s). In the event we collect certain information about your interaction with the Kanjian Services while you are a Visitor, Kanjian may associate that information with your Account if you subsequently become a Member.

      Examples of the Usage Information we may collect include:

      your IP address or unique Device Identifiers;

      the URL that referred you to the Kanjian Services;
      the areas within the Kanjian Services that you visit and your activities there, including remembering you and your preferences, which artists you are listening to, what videos you are viewing, or Profiles or content pages you choose to connect with, etc.;
      your Device location (including using GPS and longitude and latitude location information); your Device characteristics;
      certain other Device data (e.g., the time of day) and ranking information about you with respect to other Users or content pages that you interact with (e.g., Kanjian may record the links to content pages that you post and rank your association with that content compared to other Users).
      Please note that certain Web Technologies may set, change, alter, or modify settings or configurations on your Device. Additionally, third parties may use Web Technologies with the Kanjian Services. We may not control those Web Technologies and we are not responsible for them. For more information on the options that may be available to you for opting out of Web Technologies, see Section 5. You can also avoid the Web Technologies used on the Kanjian Services by not interacting with the Kanjian Services and uninstalling any mobile or other applications for which Kanjian is the application publisher

    3. Information We Receive From SNT Affiliates and Third-Parties
      Kanjian may receive various types of information about you from SNT affiliates and from other third parties, including Demographic Information, Personal Information, web usage information, inferences drawn from that data, and unique Device Identifiers.
      Kanjian may also receive or collect certain information about you from third-party websites, platforms, or services in the event you choose to take advantage of various features that may allow you to integrate information on or to the Kanjian Services. For example, Kanjian may provide you with the option to voluntarily: (i) sync content from Twitter that will appear on the Kanjian Services in your activity feed; (ii) authenticate your identity and register for Kanjian using Facebook's authentication protocol; or (iii) otherwise integrate information from third-party sources. Similarly, we may allow third-party websites, platforms, or services to develop software applications that you can elect to install on your Account in order to provide additional functionality to the Kanjian Services. These third party integrations and applications are collectively referred to in this Policy as "Third-Party Linked Services". Should you voluntarily choose to take advantage of the Third-Party Linked Services offered through the Kanjian Services, we may receive certain information about you from the relevant third-party providers, including the following:

Please note that Members under the self-reported age of 18 (other than respect to Artist Profiles for artists whose indicated age is under the age of 18 and may appear in people browse results) are not intended to show up in the results of Kanjian’s “people browse” feature, which allows Users to browse for Members based on certain criteria inputted by the User. Please contact us here if you notice any discrepancy.

      6. To Deliver Relevant Content And Recommendations

        As part of the Kanjian Services, your Usage Information and Profile Content (including video viewing and audio access) may be shared with other Users. To make your content consumption experience more social and fun, to improve services, to perform analytics, to compare your usage to other Users, to rank your linkages with certain content or Users, and to better make suggestions about other content, we may use any of the information you provide and the information we collect about you and we may share the content of the media that you access on or through the Kanjian Services with other Users. We may also share your media access through Kanjian Services (including video viewing and audio content access) as an activity notification by activity notification by, for example, sharing your Profile content (including your full name, username and Profile Picture) on the content page where such video or audio resides. Additionally, your activity may be indicated on your own Profile (in your activity stream or elsewhere) and on your connections' Profile, in each case, both on the Kanjian Website, and on any other Kanjian Services, including for example, the Kanjian mobile App. Other examples of activities that may generate Activity Notifications include, but are not limited to: (i) posting status updates; (ii) commenting on a post; (iii) sharing content or posting on the Kanjian Services; (iv) sharing content or posting to a Third-Party Linked Service; (v) connecting to a Profile or content (e.g., a photo, photo album, video, song, etc.); (vi) being tagged in a photo; (vii) commenting on a photo album; (viii) adding a photo to a photo album; (ix) playing a song or watching a video; (x) adding a song to a mix; (xi) updating a Profile; and (xii) adding a cover photo. An example of an actual Activity Notification on the Kanjian Services is the following: "John Doe listened to the song 'True Love Waits'." Activity Notifications may include Profile Content (e.g., your full name and Profile photo), and some may aggregate your activity with activity of third parties (e.g., "John Doe and Sally Smith connected to a photo.").

        Kanjian makes this feature public to everyone by default, and anyone can see these Activity Notifications. Note that if your Profile is a Restricted Profile, the Profiles that you have allowed to connect to you will still see your Activity Notifications regarding your content consumption on Kanjian. From time-to-time we may offer you with options, such as an option to opt out on a session basis, or a persistent basis, from Activity Notifications related to your content consumption. For more information, please visit here. Session settings are intended to last only as long as your Kanjian page is open in your browser. If you close your browser, the session-based setting will be reset to public, and your song and video play Activity Notifications will default to the visibility setting associated with your Profile's visibility. You should always check the content consumption Activity Notification setting each time you use the Kanjian Services, so that you are aware of and comfortable with your media consumption appearing as Activity Notifications.

        We may use Usage Information (such as about your media consumption, connections to content pages or Profiles, and posts regarding content pages or Profiles), and your Profile Content, to rank affinity to other Profiles and content. This allows us to identify "Top Fans", and we may use your Public Information to display that you are a Top Fan of an artist, other Profile, or a piece of content. Top Fan status is Public Information – anyone may see your status as a Top Fan. We also may provide analytics tools to Artist Profiles that allow the owners of such Artist Profiles to see Public Information of Users who strongly engage with the Artist Profile or the content pages controlled by the Artist Profile (e.g., videos or songs or such Artist Profile), including Users that are not connected to the Artist Profile.

        Unless otherwise noted, your consumption of media on the Kanjian Services will be Public Information.

      9. To Support And Improve The Kanjian Services

        Many of the Kanjian Services are free to Users because they are supported by advertising. We strive to make the advertising on the Kanjian Services as relevant to you as possible. As a result, you may be served ads that are personalized based on, for example, your location, age, gender, content consumption, connections and other information, and we and third parties may use Web Technologies to deliver these ads. Additionally, we may share your Personal Information, Demographic Information, Usage Information, Device Identifiers, and any other information that we receive or collect with our partners (including SNT affiliates and our third-party advertising partners) in order to enable customization of the advertising displayed on the Kanjian Services, other websites across the internet and other platforms, services and networks, including mobile and other connected Device platforms, and for other purposes not prohibited by this Policy. The parties with whom we may share your information may in turn share your information with others.

      10. To Deliver Social Advertising To You And Your Friends

      11. To Protect The Rights Of Kanjian And Our Users, And To Comply With Legal Process

        To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, Kanjian may also disclose User information if we believe in good faith that doing so is necessary or appropriate to: (i) protect or defend the rights, safety or property of Kanjian or third parties (including through the enforcement of this Policy, our Terms of Use, and other applicable agreements and policies); or (ii) comply with legal and regulatory obligations (e.g., pursuant to law enforcement inquiries, subpoenas, court orders or consent decrees). To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, Kanjian has complete discretion in electing to make or not make such disclosures, and to contest or not contest requests for such disclosures, all without notice to you.

      12. Business Transfers

        Kanjian may disclose User information in the event we file for bankruptcy, or in connection with certain types of business transactions that result in corporate change.

      13. Co-Branded Areas

        Certain areas of the Kanjian Services may be provided to you in association with third parties ("Co-Branded Areas") such as sponsors, charities and political organizations and will generally require you to disclose Personal Information to them. Such Co-Branded Areas will identify the third party and indicate if they have a privacy policy that applies to their collection and use of you information. If you elect to register for products and/or services, communicate with such third parties or download their content or applications, at Co-Branded Areas, you may be providing your information to both us and the third party. Further, if you sign-in to a Co-Branded Area with a username and password obtained on the Kanjian Services, your Personal Information may be disclosed to the identified third parties for that Co-Branded Area.

If you choose to enter a Promotion, Personal Information may be disclosed to third parties or the public in connection with the administration of such Promotion, including, in connection with winner selection, prize fulfillment, and as required by law or permitted by the Promotion's official rules, such as on a winners list.

  10. Managing Your Information On, And Communications From, Kanjian

    We provide you with the ability, through your Profile Settings, to access, edit, or delete certain of your Registration Information and Profile Content. To do so, follow the steps outlined. Please note that certain Registration Information is required to maintain an Account; therefore, if you desire to delete required Registration Information, you will have to delete your Account and associated Profiles. If you no longer want to use the Kanjian Services, you may cancel your Account at any time. Even after you cancel your Account or delete information or Profile Content, copies of some information from your Account or Profile(s) may remain viewable in circumstances where, for example, you have posted information on another User's Profile, shared information with a Third-Party Linked Service, or if another Visitor or Member copied, stored or shared your information or has a copy of the link to content you shared on the Kanjian Services. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we may also retain backup information related to your Account and associated Profile(s) on our servers for as long as is reasonably necessary after cancellation for fraud detection, site operation or to comply with applicable law or our internal security policies. Please be aware that, due to the nature of certain internet and mobile technologies outside of our control, such as caching and networked technology, your Account may not be instantly inaccessible to others, and there may be a delay in the removal of your information and content from elsewhere on the internet and from search engines.

    If you do not want to receive promotional (i.e., commercial) e-mail from us in the future, please contact us. Kanjian communicates with you for a number of different purposes. You may choose to stop receiving commercial e-mail from us for a specific purpose, multiple purposes or all purposes. You will also have the option of clicking on a link included in e-mail correspondence you receive from us in order to remove yourself from one or more of our types of communications. You may also opt-out of certain Kanjian communications via Profile Settings. Please note that there might be a brief delay between when you submit your request to "opt-out" and when it is processed and reflected in our systems. Accordingly you may continue to receive communications from us for a limited time after you unsubscribe. If your opt-out is limited to certain types of e-mails, the opt-out will be so limited. Please note that we reserve the right to send you certain transactional communications relating to your account or use of the Kanjian Services, such as administrative and service announcements even if you choose to opt-out from receiving our marketing or promotional communications.
