WHAT COOKIES ARE
Cookies are small text files, given ID tags that are stored on your computer’s browser directory or program data subfolders. The use of “cookies” on websites is standard practice. They allow you to have a better user experience.
Like many sites, I use “cookies” to recognise, collect and track information about the way you use the site. These types of “cookies” are called “first-party cookies”.
We may also collect and track information through cookies set by third parties. These perform tasks in relation to advertising and analytics and allow for interactive behaviours such as commenting. These types of “cookies” are known as “third party cookies”.
What cookies do I use on this site
Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies allow the Site to save information and details such as your username to optimise your experience on the Site and provide personal features.
Social media cookies and pixels
To allow you to share information from the site on social media platforms such as (but not inclusive) Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram we use social media cookies. Cookies may still be collected on pages where there are buttons, widgets or other active applications even when you do not actively use them.
The interaction and information recognised, collected, and/or tracked through the Site are always subject to your privacy settings for each social network and external platform.
Facebook social widgets
This widget allows you to interact with the Facebook social network.
Twitter Tweet button and Twitter social widgets
The Twitter Tweet button and Twitter social widgets are applications allowing interaction with the Twitter social network.
YouTube video widget
In order to incorporate video content on pages and posts we use YouTube.
Social media pixels
Facebook pixel connects the activity performed on the Site with the Facebook advertising network, including Instagram and Audience ads.
Targeting or advertising cookies
These cookies record your browsing actions and patterns on the Site, such as among others, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. The information recognised, collected, and/or tracked by these cookies is used to make our Site and the advertising displayed by way of links or banners on the Site more relevant to your interests. For the same purpose, this information may also be shared with third parties, such as Google AdSense.
HOW TO CONTROL COOKIES
Strictly necessary cookies may not be rejected since they are essential to enable you to browse the Site and use its features.
Should you reject cookies, you will still be able to use the Site although certain features and functionalities may not be available to you and/or certain areas may be restricted.
In addition to what it is indicated within this Policy, you can manage preferences for cookies directly from within your own browser and prevent – for example – third parties from installing cookies.
Through browser preferences, it is also possible to delete cookies installed in the past, including the cookies that may have saved the initial consent for the installation of cookies by this Site.
You can find information about how to manage cookies in the most commonly used browsers (e.g. Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, and Microsoft Internet Explorer) on the website of the browser of choice.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
I may share your information with third parties when you explicitly authorise us to share your information. Additionally, the Website may use third-party service providers to service various aspects of the Website. Each third-party service provider’s use of your personal information is dictated by their respective privacy policies.
This Website currently uses the following third-party service providers:
Google Analytics is a service which tracks Website usage and provides information such as referring websites and user actions on the Website. Google Analytics may capture your IP address, browsing actions, date and time of your visit, which pages you viewed and your navigation through the site. Through the collection of such data, I am able to analyse web traffic and user behaviour. I have anonymised my Google Analytics data and never look at non-aggregated data.
Google may use the information recognised, collected, and/or tracked to personalise the ads of its advertising network and may share the information recognised, collected, and/or tracked with other services.
Siteground is the service that is responsible for hosting and operating the website platform that Learn Music Together uses.
Browsing and interaction on any other website, including websites which have a link to our Website, is subject to that website’s own terms and policies.
Your personal data may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”).
LAWFUL BASIS OF PROCESSING PERSONAL DATA UNDER THE GDPR
We may process personal data relating to users if one of the following applies:
- Users have given their consent for one or more specific purposes
- Provision of data is necessary for the performance of an agreement with the user and/or any pre-contractual obligations thereof;
- Processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject;
- Processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party.
We process and store your personal data for as long as required by the purpose they have been collected for.
- personal data collected for purposes related to the performance of a contract between us and the user will be retained until such contract has been fully performed;
- personal data collected for the purposes of our legitimate interests will be retained as long as needed to fulfill such purposes;
- we may be allowed to retain personal data for a longer period whenever the user has given consent to such processing, as long as such consent is not withdrawn;
- we may be obliged to retain personal data for a longer period whenever required to do so for the performance of a legal obligation or upon order of an authority.
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personal information unless we provide users with advance notice.
This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or serving our users (such as, for example, Convertkit) so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.
We may also release information when its release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property or safety.
However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
We promise that we take data safety seriously and use your private data only to offer a personalised experience.
I use ConvertKit for our newsletter, which you can opt-out of at any time, and Google Analytics for analysing website data.
If you subscribed to our newsletter, you would receive our newsletters. You can always unsubscribe by following the link at the bottom of the email or by emailing me at Fiona@learnmusictogether.com.
If you gave me your name, it would only be used to personalise the newsletters.
I have never sold, I am not selling, and I will not sell any of your personal data provided to us.

Be informed regarding how the data is collected and used.
Have access to the data about you.
Ask us to change the data about you.

Similarly, I do not resell or share your contact information with third parties, and once you opt-out of the mailing list, you are permanently removed.
The security of your personal information is important to me.

Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.
Visitor comments are checked through an automated spam detection service.
Akismet is the anti-spam service I use. The information I collect depends on how the User sets up Akismet for the Site, but typically includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).
