Rock-Bands.com’s Data Statement

This document declares the undertakings by Rock-Bands.com in relation to its
handling of Your Data.

Data
Collection

Rock-Bands.com undertakes to collect Your Data by means that are:

  • fair;
  • legal; and
  • transparent.

If you visit Rock-Bands.com’s web-site, your web-browser
automatically discloses, and Rock-Bands.com’s web-server automatically logs, the
following information: the date and time, the IP address from which you issued
the request, the type of browser and operating system you are using, the URL of
any page that referred you to the page, the URL you requested, and whether your
request was successful. This data may or may not be sufficient to identify
you.

Any additional data that you provide, e.g. in a web-form, may
also be logged. This data may or may not be sufficient to identify you.

Any additional data that your web-browser automatically
provides
may also be logged. This will be the case, for example, if
your browser has previously been requested to store data on your computer in
‘cookies’ and submits them each time you request a web-page
within a particular domain (such as Rock-Bands.com). This data may or may not
be sufficient to identify you.

If you disclose personal data to Rock-Bands.com in conjunction with an
identifier such as your name or your credit-card details
, Rock-Bands.com
will collect Your Data. Moreover, any data that becomes available to
Rock-Bands.com through any of the means described in the preceding paragraphs may
be able to be associated with that identifier, and hence become Your Data.

Subject to the qualifications immediately below, Rock-Bands.com undertakes to
collect Your Data from you and not from other parties. This
undertaking is qualified as follows:

  • where Rock-Bands.com reasonably considers that the protection of its
    financial interests requires that it gather YourData from other sources, or
    from additional sources. This applies in particular where Rock-Bands.com has a
    lending exposure to you, and seeks information about your creditworthiness;
  • where Rock-Bands.com reasonably considers that its capability to deliver
    quality services to you will be materially enhanced by gathering YourData from
    other sources. This applies in particular to consumer profile data.

Where Rock-Bands.com collects Your Data from sources other than
you
, it undertakes:

  • to do so only by legal means;
  • to do so only with your Consent; and
  • to declare to you what sources it uses, and under what circumstances.

Rock-Bands.com undertakes to declare the purpose of collection

in a manner which is clear and meaningful, and to avoid vague, highly inclusive
statements such as ‘to support our operations’.


Data
Security

Rock-Bands.com undertakes to store Your Data in a manner that
ensures security against unauthorised access, alteration or deletion, at a
level commensurate with its sensitivity.

Rock-Bands.com undertakes to store Your Data only in
jurisdictions where data protections are at least equivalent
to those required under the OECD Guidelines.

Rock-Bands.com undertakes to transmit Your Data in a manner that
ensures security against unauthorised access, alteration or deletion, at a
level commensurate with its sensitivity.

Rock-Bands.com undertakes to implement appropriate measures to ensure
security of Your Data against inappropriate behaviour by Rock-Bands.com’s
staff-members and contractors
. These include:

  • training for staff in relation to privacy;
  • access control, to limit access to Your Data to those staff and
    contractors who have legitimate reasons to access it;
  • particularly in the case of sensitive data, audit trails of accesses,
    including the identities of staff and contractors accessing the data;
  • reminders to staff and contractors from time to time about the importance
    of data privacy, and the consequences of inappropriate behaviour;
  • declaration of appropriately strong sanctions that are to be applied in
    the event of inappropriate behaviour
  • clear communication of policies and sanctions; and
  • processes to audit, to investigate and to impose sanctions.

Data
Use

Use refers to the application of Your Data by any part of Rock-Bands.com, or
any staff-member or contractor of Rock-Bands.com in the course of their work.

Rock-Bands.com undertakes to use Your Data only for:

  • the purposes for which it was collected;
  • such other purposes as are subsequently agreed between
    Rock-Bands.com and You;
  • such additional purposes as may be required by law. In
    these circumstances, Rock-Bands.com will take any reasonable steps available to it
    to communicate to You that the use has occurred, unless it is precluded from
    doing so by law; and
  • such additional purposes as are authorised by law (in
    particular to protect Rock-Bands.com’s interests, e.g. if it believes on
    reasonable grounds that You have failed to fulfil your undertakings to
    Rock-Bands.com or have committed a breach of the criminal law).

Rock-Bands.com undertakes to use YourData only if it has demonstrable
relevance
to the particular use to which it is being put.

Rock-Bands.com undertakes to use YourData in such a manner as to take into account
the possibility that it is not of sufficient quality for the
purpose
, e.g. because it is inaccurate, out-of-date, incomplete, or
out-of-context.


Data
Disclosure

Disclosure refers to making YourData available to any party other than
Rock-Bands.com and You. The term disclosure may include many different conditions
of data transfer, including selling, renting, trading, sharing and giving.

Rock-Bands.com undertakes to disclose Your Data only under the following
circumstances:

  • in the course of business being conducted between You and
    Rock-Bands.com
    , where disclosure is necessary to a contractor, such as a
    transport company. Where Your Data is disclosed in this way, Rock-Bands.com
    undertakes to exercise control over Rock-Bands.com’s contractors to ensure that
    their actions are compliant with these Terms;
  • in other circumstances that are directly implied by the purpose
    agreed between You and Rock-Bands.com
    at the time of data collection or
    subsequently. Where Your Data is disclosed in this way, Rock-Bands.com undertakes
    to exercise control over Rock-Bands.com’s contractors to ensure that their actions
    are compliant with these Terms;
  • with your consent, or at your request;
  • where required by law, such as a provision of a statute,
    or a court order such as a search warrant or sub poena. In these
    circumstances, Rock-Bands.com will take any reasonable steps available to it to
    communicate to You that the disclosure has occurred, unless it is precluded
    from doing so by law;
  • where permitted by law (e.g. the reporting of suspected
    breach of the criminal law to a law enforcement agency; and in an emergency,
    where Rock-Bands.com believes on reasonable grounds that the disclosure of
    YourData will materially assist in the protection of the life of health of some
    person), provided that Rock-Bands.com will apply due diligence to ensure that the
    exercise of the permission is justifiable.

In all cases, Rock-Bands.com undertakes to disclose only such of Your Data as
is necessary in the particular circumstances.


Data
Retention and Destruction

Subject to the qualifications immediately below, Rock-Bands.com undertakes:

  • to retain Your Data only as long as is consistent with
    its purpose; and
  • to destroy Your Data when its purpose has expired, and to
    do so in such a manner that Your Data is not subsequently capable of being
    recovered.

This undertaking is qualified as follows:

  • Your Data may be retained in Rock-Bands.com’s logs, backups and audit
    trails
    within short-term retention cycles that are devised to protect
    the company’s operations. In such cases, Your Data will be destroyed in
    accordance with those cycles;
  • Your Data may be retained beyond the expiry of its purpose if that is
    required by law, such as a provision of a statute, or a court
    order such as a search warrant or sub poena, or a warning by a law enforcement
    agency that delivery of a court order is imminent. In these circumstances,
    Rock-Bands.com:

    • will take any reasonable steps available to it to communicate to You that
      Your Data is being retained, unless it is precluded from doing so by law; and
    • will only retain Your Data while that provision is current, and will then
      destroy Your Data;
  • Your Data may be retained beyond the expiry of its purpose if it is
    authorised by law (in particular to protect Rock-Bands.com’s
    interests, e.g. if it believes on reasonable grounds that You have failed to
    fulfil your undertakings to Rock-Bands.com or have committed a breach of the
    criminal law). In these circumstances, Rock-Bands.com will only retain Your Data
    while that situation is current, and will then destroy Your Data.

Access
by You to Your Personal Data

Rock-Bands.com undertakes to provide you with access to Your
Data, subject to only such conditions and processes as are reasonable in the
circumstances. In particular, Rock-Bands.com undertakes to enable access:

  • conveniently;
  • without unreasonable delay; and
  • without cost.

Rock-Bands.com undertakes to establish and operate identity
authentication protections for access to Your Data
that are
appropriate to its sensitivity, but practical. This may involve some
inconvenience; for example, relatively straightforward procedures may be
involved in order to provide you with access through a channel that you have
previously registered with Rock-Bands.com (such as a particular email-address),
but may impose more onerous procedures if you wish to use some other channel.

In the event that you dispute some aspect of Your Data, Rock-Bands.com undertakes
to take reasonable steps in relation to the amendment, supplementation
or deletion
of Your Data.

You undertake:

  • not to seek access for frivolous purposes, or unreasonably frequently;
  • to accept that deletion of some data may not be consistent with the
    provision of particular services by Rock-Bands.com to you.

Information
about Data-Handling Practices

Rock-Bands.com undertakes to make information available to you about the manner
in which Rock-Bands.com handles your data:

  • in general terms, in a readily accessible manner; and

information available to you on request about the manner in which Rock-Bands.com’s
contractors handle your data.

Rock-Bands.com undertakes to ensure that the information provided is meaningful,
and addresses your concerns.

You undertake:

  • not to seek such information for frivolous purposes, or unreasonably
    frequently; and

    Your Data and Rock-Bands.com’s business processes, and may harm Rock-Bands.com’s
    commercial interests.

Handling
of Enquiries, General Concerns and Complaints

If you have enquiries, general concerns, or complaints about these Terms, or
about Rock-Bands.com’s behaviour in relation to these Terms, you undertake:

    • through a channel made available by Rock-Bands.com for that purpose;

Rock-Bands.com undertakes:

  • to provide one or more channels for communications to
    Rock-Bands.com, which are convenient to users;

    communication;
  • to promptly provide a response to the communication, in
    an appropriate and meaningful manner.

You further undertake to not pursue Rock-Bands.com through any
Regulator or the media:

  • until and unless Rock-Bands.com has had a reasonable opportunity to respond
    to the initial communication; and
  • while Rock-Bands.com and you remain are conducting a meaningful dialogue
    about the matter.

create legal obligations, and that those obligations are
intended to be enforceable under appropriate laws in
appropriate jurisdictions. These include laws relating to data protection,

    company or any of its relevant assets from materially changing the Terms
    applicable to Your Data in a manner that reduces the protections for Your Data;
