Personal data that we use

Your personal data is only processed by us with your consent. The processing of this information, the purposes for this processing, and the legal ground by which the processing occurs is all described below.

We collect and process your personal details when you register as a user and with the purpose of linking the data to our Software End-User License Agreement ("EULA"). The data is stored until you deregister as a user and stop using our EULA. We rely on your consent of our EULA to which you are an active party as legal grounds for our processing of your details.

Shopify to host our files
ConvertKit for email marketing
Stripe for payment processing

We process the following data:

• Name - typically included in the purchase information, it is necessary to validate your purchase.
• Email - all purchases are required to have a valid email address. Email is also how we communicate with you, to send you downloads, updates, invoices, receipts, and the main way we communicate for technical support requests.
• Your VAT number (optional)
• Purchase History - We keep a record of the products you have purchased to better help serve you and for you to have access to downloads.

We also process non-identifiable data via Cookies and Google Analytics (see above).

Disclosure of your information

We don’t share any private or personal information to the public or any third parties without your prior consent, except for when we need to meet legal requirements like accounting, or if there is a legal reason for the courts or in the case of the following:

• Customer/Technical support, where our reps may look up information to help you.
• Accountants who abide by accountant–client privilege and and federal Tax Authorities
• Web developers — to maintain our website and improve your browsing experience.

 

Your right to be forgotten

You have the right to request that we delete any personal data that we process about you. We will delete the data within one month’s time. We will also, without your explicit demand, delete the data that we have collected but do not longer have a lawful right to process. We will inform you about this if it would occur. Please be aware that without your information, we will no longer be able to provide you with downloads, invoices, or information about updates and upgrades to our software.

 

Your right to withdraw consent

If you want to remove yourself entirely from our system, we will do so to the point of maintaining our obligations to the US tax code. For example, we will not delete the sales details necessary for us to comply with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. However, all other data can be removed, and in doing so you agree to no longer be able to download any Simple Samples Audio software until you resume a valid user account. In any case, the End User License Agreement (EULA) shall remain in full force throughout perpetuity unless Simple Samples Audio decides to terminate it. Meaning, you will still have to abide by all of Simple Samples Audio’s EULA terms. Otherwise, we will hold on to this data indefinitely to keep your account active.

At any time you may request a copy of your data referenced above and we will supply you with that information within 30 days of a written request.
