Last revision date: January 17, 2023


This policy describes Extreme Music Library Ltd and its affiliates use of your data. References in this policy to Extreme, we or us shall mean Extreme Music Library Ltd.

This Privacy Policy applies to the information collected by Extreme both offline and online, including through the Extreme Website and through any interactive features, applications, widgets, blogs, social networks and other online or wireless offerings that post a link to this Privacy Policy, whether accessed via computer, mobile device or other technology (collectively Extreme Websites”).

Please note that when you enter any subsites accessible through Extreme Websites, such subsites may have their own specific privacy policies. Additionally, the properties of affiliated Extreme companies, including some that are linked to/from the Extreme Websites, may have different policies; therefore, please review the privacy policies on those websites if you visit them.


With the exception of information related to establishing an account and login credentials for any of the Extreme Websites, Extreme does not generally require that you provide us with personal data in order to visit and use the Extreme Websites. Please note that in order to participate in some activities, such as sweepstakes, contests and other promotions (collectively, Promotions”) and social media, we may ask you to provide information that could reasonably be used to contact you or to identify you personally (such as your name, company name, title, e-mail address, mailing address and telephone number). Extreme may also ask you to provide other information about yourself, which may include demographic information such as geographic region, etc., or certain information about your preferences and interests.

In the event that a Promotion is offered jointly with a third party, as a result of your participation in such Promotion, your personal data and non-personal data may be shared with such third party. This sharing will be disclosed to you at the time you provide your information.

Extreme may receive information about you from third parties. In addition, if you are on another Website and you opt-in to receive information from us, that Website will forward to us your e-mail address and other (personal data) about you so that we may contact you as requested. We may also supplement the information we collect about you with outside records from third parties in order to enhance our ability to serve you, to tailor our content to you and to offer you opportunities to use our services that we believe may be of interest to you. When we obtain personal data from third parties, we will apply this Privacy Policy to the personal data received, unless we have disclosed otherwise.

Although these will only be sent where you have given your consent, or (where permissible) you have been given an opportunity to opt out, you will be able to opt-out of electronic direct marketing by following the instructions in the communication.


1. To Affiliates, other Extreme companies and third parties.

Extreme may share your personal data with companies affiliated with Extreme (“Affiliates”), so that those Affiliates can (i) assist us with fulfilling your requests or improving our content, services or advertising; and/or (ii) contact you about other content, services or other offerings that may be of interest to you.

We may from time to time employ third parties to perform functions on our behalf, and thus, we may also share your personal data with third-party service providers that assist us with providing content, fulfilling your requests, improving our content, services or advertising, or otherwise performing services for Extreme. As one example, if you access content or services that are published, developed or supported by an Affiliate or third party, your personal data may be shared with that Affiliate or third party for purposes related to that content or those services, including service administration and/or development. Additionally, we may share your information in order to host or operate the Extreme Websites, for data analysis purposes, and for the administration of Promotions, such as in connection with winner selection and prize fulfillment.

2. When you consent to have your personal data shared or otherwise request that we share your information.

We may offer you the opportunity to consent to the sharing of your information with third parties, for example so you are able to receive information and/or marketing offers from third parties. Additionally, you may request, sometimes through your use of an interactive feature or third- party application, that we share personal data about you with a third party, and we will typically do so in those circumstances. If you consent or request to receive communications from third parties, you will need to communicate with them directly if you later decide that you no longer wish to receive their communications.

The provisions above apply to our sharing of personal data with Affiliates and third-party service providers. They do not cover use of personal data that those Affiliates and third-party service providers collect directly from you. Such use of personal data is covered by the relevant Affiliate’s and/or third party’s privacy policy and not this Privacy Policy.

3. Business transactions.

We may share your personal data with Affiliates for internal reasons, primarily for business and operational purposes, including any corporate reorganization, restructuring or other corporate change. In addition, Extreme or any of its assets, including the Extreme Websites, may be sold, or other transactions may occur in which your personal data is one of the key business assets in the transaction. In such a case, your personal data may be one of the business assets we transfer. Hence, Extreme reserves the right to disclose and transfer user information, including personal data, in connection with any activity and/or transaction described above.

4. Legal protections and law enforcement.

We may transfer and disclose information, including your personal data, (including Usage Information and Device Identifier (including IP address)), to third parties: (i) to comply with legal obligations; (ii) when we believe in good faith that the law requires it; (iii) at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation; (iv) to verify or enforce our Terms and Conditions or other applicable policies; (v) to respond to an emergency; or (vi) to otherwise protect the rights, property, safety or security of third parties, visitors to the Extreme Websites or the public. We may also use Device Identifiers to identify users, and may do so in cooperation with copyright owners, internet service providers, wireless service providers or law enforcement agencies, in our discretion. Such disclosures may be carried out without notice to you. Extreme’s Right to Change These Terms and Conditions of Use or Content on the Website.

5. Cookies and other tracking technologies.

We use cookies and other technologies to track the use of the Extreme Websites. We allow third parties to place such technologies on the Extreme Websites for analytics and other purposes. We may use cookies and other technologies to collect aggregate site visitation data by tracking how users navigate to and through our website. Cookies are files that web servers place on your device. The use of cookies on Extreme Websites allows you to enjoy more seamless visits and more accurately measures your behavior on the Extreme Websites. You can learn more about the cookies and web beacons we use and how you can disable cookies and web beacons in our Cookie Policy.

6. Social media applications.

Functionality on the Extreme properties may permit interactions between third-party properties, such as enabling you to “like” or “share” content to third-party properties. If you choose to “like” or “share” content or to otherwise post information from or via Extreme Websites to a third-party property, feature or application, that information may become public and the third-party property may have access to information about you and your use of the Extreme Websites, including personal data.

You may also choose to participate in a third party application or feature (such as our Facebook, Instagram or other social media pages, or a similar feature on a third-party property) through which you allow us to collect and share (or the third party to share) information about you, including personal data. The third party may allow you to remove the application or feature, in which case we will no longer collect information about you through the application or feature, but we may retain the information previously collected. In addition, we may receive information about you if other users of a third-party property give us access to their profiles and you are one of their “connections,” or if information about you is otherwise accessible through your “connections” web page, profile page, or similar page on a social networking or other third-party property or interactive service.


Extreme uses commercially reasonable safeguards to help protect and secure your personal data, and we use reasonable efforts to obtain the agreement of our Affiliates and third-party service providers to take steps to protect the confidentiality, security, and integrity of personal data we share with them. However, no electronic data transmission or storage of information can be guaranteed to be 100% private and secure. Please be careful to avoid ‘phishing ’schemes, where someone may send you an e-mail that looks like it is from Extreme asking for your personal data. You understand that any message or information you send to an Extreme Property may be read or intercepted by others. Extreme does not ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you use the Extreme Websites and provide us with your information at your own risk.

To help protect you and others, we monitor use of the Extreme Websites, and we use the information we collect, including personal data, to identify fraudulent activities and transactions; prevent abuse of and investigate and/or seek prosecution for any potential threats to or misuse of the Extreme Websites; ensure compliance with the Terms and Conditions and this Privacy Policy; investigate violations of or enforce these agreements; and otherwise to protect the rights and property of Extreme, its partners, and customers.

The Extreme Websites are open to all individuals, though some Promotions may have age restrictions. We do not knowingly collect or permit the collection, storage or use of any personal data from anyone under 16 years of age. If we become aware that a child under 16 is attempting to submit this information, we will inform the minor that he or she is ineligible to do so. We will then remove this information from our records.

  • For residents of the United States. If you are a parent or guardian who knows or has discovered that your child under the age of 13 has submitted his or her personal data or other information without your consent, permission or authorization, upon request, we will promptly: (a) provide direct notice to you indicating what, if any, personal data of your child has been collected and how it has been used and/or disclosed; (b) remove your child’s personal data or other information from our database, cease the use of such information and direct any other party with access to such information to do the same; and (c) by notice to you, confirm compliance with the foregoing.
