Collecting, sharing and using your information
In order to provide our services to you and to continuously improve them over time, we need to collect your information.
Information when you sign up for a Fanity profile:
When you sign up for a Fanity account, you provide us with personal information like your name, email, gender and birth date. During the registration process we give you the opportunity to connect with your favorite artists and friends. We offer you the possibility to use contact and profile importer tolls to ease this process.
In some cases we ask you for additional information for security reasons or to provide you with specific services. After or during your registration you can provide other information about yourself to make public, like a short bio, a picture or you location. To personalize your profile we ask you to provide us with information about your favorite artists, music, movies, sport or whatsoever. We may use your contact information to inform and/or you about our Services or for security reasons (we have to check that you are who you say you are). We will also use your additional personalized info to make suggestions that may improve your Fanity profile, like a new artist you might like. If you would like to unsubscribe from personal messages from Fanity, you may unsubscribe at any time, to do so click here, but keep in mind that you won’t be up-to-date on all the latest Services and features. Providing us with the additional information as stated above is completely optional, but will improve your Fanity experience.
We understand that sharing information, like; rumors, thoughts, pictures and videos else is fun and therefore we have designed our Services in a way that you can do so. Please understand that most of the information you provide to us is information you are asking us to make public. Our default is designed to make all information you provide us public, but we offer you the possibility to adjust your settings to make your information more private. Your public information is broadly and instantly disseminated. For example, your updates are searchable by many search engines. You should be careful at all times about the information you provide and that you make public via Fanity.
