NameShouts collects the following information from you through our Services, our Website (https://www.nameshouts.com), social media, and other channels for the following purposes:
You agree that you will only submit audio recordings in your own voice. By submitting Recordings to NameShouts, you grant NameShouts permission to store, access, reproduce, distribute, process, publish, and display the audio recordings and voices you submit. Recordings will not be made public or shared on online platforms such as electronic mail, or social networks without the explicit consent of the User. NameShouts will not give, sell, rent, or loan Recordings to any third party.
SHARING YOUR RECORDINGS
If you elect to post something on a public forum, any Personal Data or Recordings you voluntarily disclose for posting to the forum becomes available to the public, as controlled by any applicable privacy settings. You are solely responsible for the Recordings you share on public forums, social networks, and with third parties. NameShouts shall not be liable, legally or financially, for any damages resulting from the misuse, theft, or breach of privacy resulting from the voluntary sharing of Recordings by the User.
USE OF RECORDINGS
Recordings do not include “Recording Data” which is defined as encoded or anonymized information or aggregated data we collect about a group or category, a language, features, or users which does not contain personally identifying information. Recording Data helps us understand trends, improve our services, and better train our algorithms. NameShouts employees, contractors, consultants, and research partners may listen to Recordings in order to test or improve our products and services.

If you are located in certain countries, including those that fall under the scope of the European General Data Protection Regulation (AKA the “GDPR”), data protection laws give you rights with respect to your personal data, subject to any exemptions provided by the law, including the rights to:
You can usually access, correct, or delete your personal data using your account settings and tools that we offer, but if you aren’t able to do that, or you would like to contact us about one of the other rights, email us at email@example.com.
Cookies are small text files sent by us to your computer and from your computer or mobile device to us each time you visit our website or use our desktop application. They are unique to your account or your browser. Session-based cookies last only while your browser is open and are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Persistent cookies last until you or your browser delete them or until they expire.
Some cookies are associated with your account and Personal Data in order to remember that you are logged in and which parts of the Service or Website you are logged into. Other cookies are not tied to your account but are unique and allow us to carry out site analytics and customization, among other similar things. If you access the Services through your browser, you can manage your cookie settings there but if you disable some or all cookies you may not be able to use the Services.
NameShouts sets and accesses our own cookies on the domains operated by NameShouts and its affiliates. In addition, we use third parties like Google Analytics for website analytics. You may opt-out of third party cookies from Google Analytics on its website. We do not currently recognize or respond to browser-initiated Do Not Track signals as there is no consistent industry standard for compliance.
We use a limited number of third party providers to assist us in providing the Services to our Users. As of the date hereof, these third party providers perform technical operations such as database monitoring, data storage and hosting services and customer support software tools. These third parties may access, process or store Personal Data in the course of providing these services, but based on our instructions only.
