Welcome to Fidarr.
Fidarr provides a Social Entertainment App for streaming music, creating, sharing, watching short video clips, live streaming, connecting with friends and other features as well as other products and services that may be developed from time to time (the “Fidarr Service” or “Service”).
As used in this policy, “Fidarr” refers to Fidarr, Inc. and its subsidiaries.
This policy applies to all Fidarr-authorized operations of the Service. We may refer to Fidarr as “we”, “us”, or “our”. We may refer to you as “user”, “you”, or “your”. The purpose of this policy is to inform you about the personal information we collect, how we use and share that information and how you can control how we use and share that information. By using our Service, you agree to the terms of this policy and you expressly consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information by this policy. If you do not agree with this policy, you should not use the service.
- Information We Receive or Collect from You
Registration Data: When you register, we ask you to provide certain information, which includes your name, username, email address (the “Registration Data”), as well as a password for your account.
Payment Information: If you choose to subscribe to fee-based portions of the Service, purchase the virtual currency (“Fidarr Gold”) for gifting purposes, or purchase add-on products or services, you will also be asked to provide (at a minimum) your name and payment information (“Payment Information”).
Information You Choose to Provide to Fidarr: You have the ability to provide a variety of information during your interactions with us and the Fidarr Service, such as emails you may send us, ads you respond to, and emails or newsletters that you sign up to receive. Fidarr or third parties acting on our behalf receive data from you whenever you provide us with information.
Listening Activity: When you use the Service, we keep track of your listening activity, which may include the number and title of songs you have listened to, the songs that you like (heart), playlists you create or listen to, the songs you skip, and how long you listen.
Messages with others: We do not retain your messages in the ordinary course of providing our Services to you. Once your messages (including your chats, photos, videos, and voice messages) are delivered, they are deleted from our servers. Your messages are stored on your own device. If a message cannot be delivered immediately (for example, if you are offline), we may keep it on our servers for up to 30 days as we try to deliver it. If a message is still undelivered after 30 days, we delete it. To improve performance and deliver media messages more efficiently, such as when many people are sharing a popular photo or video, we may retain that content on our servers for a longer period of time. We also offer end-to-end encryption for our Services. End-to-end encryption means that your messages are encrypted to protect us and third parties from reading them.
Connections in Hubs: To help you organize how you communicate with others you can create, join, or get added to hubs (Fidarr group feature), while you are in there, some of your account information will be seen by other people.
Technical Information: As is true of many internet-enabled services, Fidarr may collect certain technical information through the use of log files and servers. Web and application servers create log files automatically as part of their setup and configuration. Information in a log file may include IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, date/time stamps, Media Access Control (MAC) address, file requested, and other usage information and statistics.
Contact Information: If you choose to participate in research studies, or sign up for certain features and/or rewards offered through the Service, you may provide us, and we may collect, your contact information, including your name, mailing address, and phone number (“Contact Information”). The email address you provided as part of your Registration Data is not considered Contact Information for this policy.
Device Information: If you access and use the Service from a computer, mobile phone, tablet, or other electronic devices, we may collect information about those devices. For example, our servers receive and store information about your computer and browser, including your Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, and other related software or hardware information. If you access the Service from a mobile phone, tablet, or other electronic devices, we may collect and store information such as device type, operating system version and type, unique identifiers (such as mobile advertising ID, VIN, and MAC address), carrier, and other related information for that device.
Location Information: When you register for the Fidarr Service, you provide us with your zip or postal code. We may also collect location information from the devices you use while accessing the Fidarr Service. Depending on the device and operating system, device-based location information may be derived from GPS and nearby wireless signals such as cell towers, Wi-Fi networks, and Bluetooth beacons. We will not collect your device-based location information unless you have permitted the Fidarr app to access location services on your device. You can disable this access at any time in your system settings. Additionally, in some cases, your location within a geographic block may be approximated from the IP address currently assigned to your device.
Research: If you choose to participate in surveys or other research, we will collect any information you choose to provide us, together with other data about your use of the Fidarr Service.
Third-Party Personal Information: Certain features of our Service require you to provide personal information about another person. By providing another person’s personal information to us, you confirm that you have all the necessary rights and permissions to provide such information. If you choose to provide this information, we may store and use the information to provide those features. For example, if you choose to purchase a subscription to the Service for a friend, we may ask for your friend’s name and email address to provide the gift. We will only use this information for the specific reason for which it was provided or for security purposes, such as to prevent fraud. If you believe that one of your contacts has provided us with your personal information and you would like to request that it be removed from our database, please contact us at [email protected]
- Information We Receive or Collect from Third Parties

We provide you with the ability to change the degree of visibility of your Fidarr profile.

Please consult with the applicable search engine to determine how you may remove web pages from their webpage cache.
- Security and Content from Other Websites
Protection of Data from Loss: We have implemented security measures designed to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information we collect or receive from you. For example, when you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our order forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). However, despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. If you have any questions about security on our Service, you can contact our User Support team [email protected].
Data Integrity: We use the information we collect in ways that are relevant and compatible with the purpose for which that information was collected or provided to us as disclosed in this policy.

Links to Other Websites: Our Service and certain advertisements on our Service include links to other websites whose privacy practices may differ from those of Fidarr. If you submit personal information to any of those websites, the privacy statements and practices of those websites govern their use of your information. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy statement of any website you visit.
Use of Framing Techniques: Some of our third-party partners may utilize framing techniques to serve content to and from web pages accessible through our Service while preserving the look and feel of our website.
