Web Analytics Services
We use both Google Analytics and Quantcast to gather statistical information about our visitors, the pages they visit and related demographic information. These services require cookies to operate properly but the information they gather is anonymous and statistical in nature. See the Google Analytics Privacy FAQ for further information.
We use both Google Adsense and Media.net (Yahoo/Bing Ad Network) to provide advertising on mfiles. These services require cookies to operate, and can identify visitors in order to optimise the effectiveness of their adverts. See the Google Advertising Privacy FAQ for further information.
Social Media Websites
As stated above we do use certain services operated by Google and other 3rd parties. If you have any questions or concerns about how your information is used by these companies, please refer to their respective data policies. For example Google sets out here how they use your information via partner websites such as mfiles. Media.net state that their ads are "GDPR compliant and privacy-friendly". They do not collect, store or use any Personal Data for ad targeting, only sending "user IP addresses to upstream providers for the purpose of fraud identification and mitigation".
If you interact with Music Files Ltd on social media by liking our pages and posts, becoming our friend, following or subscribing to our profiles and channels then we will potentially have access to your name and other details. Please refer to your privacy settings on these social media sites. However we do not extract or otherwise process or store your social media data.
If you contact Music Files Ltd in any way (e.g. by letter, email, message or telephone) whether to request or share information or to engage our professional services, then we will always treat your personal information in the strictest confidence. In such cases all your data (including name, email address and contact details) will be stored securely and we will never share those details with other companies or individuals.
The mfiles website was converted to secure "https" in 2017 and since then all transmitted website data including any data you enter (e.g. words you input into search boxes) are now encrypted, and therefore unable to be seen by anyone.
