We will occasionally restrict your access to the Website or to the Services to carry out repairs, maintenance or to introduce new functionality or services and we will endeavour to keep disruption to a minimum.

YOUR USE OF SHAZAM IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. SHAZAM IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS. WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES AND STATUTORY REMEDIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.

In any event, our liability to you shall be limited to typical and foreseeable damage and shall not exceed the fees for a three (3) month period or the maximum amount of fifteen dollars ($15), whichever is higher. Some jurisdictions (countries, provinces, states) absolutely prohibit some limitations on liability, disclaimer of warranties or exclusion of direct or consequential damages. In such cases only, the above disclaimers, limitations or exclusions may not apply to you to their full extent.

We may assign our rights and obligation under these Terms without your prior consent to any new provider of the Shazam Services. If any provision of these Terms is found to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then the provision will be deleted. Any such deletion will not affect the validity and enforceability of any of the other provisions of these Terms.
We may at any time terminate your account or prevent you from gaining access to Shazam. We will not be liable to you or to any third party for any failure, suspension and/or termination of access to Shazam in any way.

Unsolicited Ideas and Feedback
We welcome your feedback on what we are currently doing (both positive and negative). If you want to send us your feedback, we ask that you use our contact form. Any feedback you provide to us can be used by us on an unrestricted basis and treated by us as non-confidential.
Please do not tell us anything that contains new or original ideas, in respect of which you might want, now or in future, to claim any form of proprietary rights. If, despite our request that you not send us your ideas, you still send them to us, then regardless of what you say to us, you agree that: (i) your submissions and their contents will automatically become our property, without any compensation to you; (ii) you will not assert against us any rights or ownership and you will not claim any reward (financial or otherwise) in respect of any such submissions; (iii) we may use or redistribute the submissions and their contents for any purpose and in any way; (iv) there is no obligation for us to review any material that you submit to us; and (v) there is no obligation to keep any such material confidential.
These Terms and the relationship between you and us shall be governed by the laws of England and Wales without regard to its conflict of law provisions. In the event of a dispute, we want to address your concerns without needing a formal legal case. Before filing a claim against us, you agree to try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting you via email. If a dispute is not resolved within fifteen (15) business days of submission, you or Shazam may bring a formal proceeding.
Outside of the United States . You and we agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
In the United States . You and Shazam agree to resolve any claims relating to these Terms or the Services through final and binding arbitration, except as set forth under Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate below. The American Arbitration Association (AAA) will administer the arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. The arbitration will be held in the United States county where you live or work, New York, NY or any other location we agree to. The AAA rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees. Shazam will pay all arbitration fees for claims less than $75,000. If you receive an arbitration award that is more favorable than any offer we make to resolve the claim, we will pay you $1,000 in addition to the award. Shazam will not seek its attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous. Either you or Shazam may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in New York, NY or any United States county where you live or work. Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Services, or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above. You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations are not allowed. In the event that the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, you and Shazam agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) will be brought in the federal or state courts of New York County, NY . Both you and Shazam consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there.back to top ↑

If you want to jump to a particular section of the policy – click on one of the links below:
Shazam collects information about you when you interact with our sites or apps.
Information You Provide to Us. Although some features of our sites or apps are available without creating an account, if you choose to register for an account to access additional Shazam features we may request some information, including, but not limited to, your name and email address. We may also collect information about you when you participate in certain activities such as filling out a form to take advantage of offers, completing a survey, participating in a contest or promotion or to sign up to receive one of our newsletters, communicating with us via third-party social media sites, requesting customer support, or otherwise communicating with us.
If you create a Shazam account using a social network to log in, or connect with Facebook or another social network via the Shazam app, we may also receive some information about you from that network (e.g., your Facebook ID, name, profile picture, gender, friend list, birthdate, email address and Facebook registration date).
The first time you launch the Shazam mobile application, we will ask to access your location to provide additional features and functionality, although sharing your location is not required. Your device’s settings may provide you with location permissions settings. The default settings may vary from device to device and are subject to your specific device’s functionality.
Information Collected Automatically. We also automatically receive and track certain data about your computer or mobile device when you visit our sites or apps, including, but not limited to, your device type, IP address, software and language preference, browser, type of operating system, date and time of viewing, use of our features and purchasing history or preferences, and your taps and interests. We may also create a unique device or user ID for you so we can recognize you. In some cases or on some devices, we may automatically detect or infer your location using GPS, your IP address, watermarks and/or Bluetooth, but often your operating system will require you to grant us permission to access your GPS or Bluetooth settings; please refer to your device’s system settings regarding location services. Please visit support.shazam.com for more information on permissions we may request, and your options.
Some Internet browsers include the ability to transmit “Do Not Track” signals. Since uniform standards for “Do Not Track” signals have not been adopted, and there is currently disagreement concerning what, if anything, websites should do when they receive such signals, Shazam does not process or respond to “Do Not Track” signals. If and when a final standard is established and accepted, we may reassess how to respond to these signals.
We acquire information from other trusted sources to update or supplement the information you provided or we collected automatically. Local law may require that you authorize the third party to share your information with us before we can acquire it.
When permitted by applicable law, we may use your information, including personal data, for the following purposes:
We may also encrypt and/or aggregate your data with other users' data in order to create statistics about the general use of the sites or apps, which helps us to develop new products and services. We may also share this aggregated data with our business partners and third-party advertisers.
We may share your information, such as your device, IDFA/AAID, browser type, hashed email address, inferred age and gender, and location information (if you have consented to location access), with third parties including advertisers and partners, some of whom may use your data for the purposes of interest-based advertising, including demographic, behavioral, and geographic ad targeting or to provide localized services (with your prior permission or where otherwise permitted by applicable law).
We also may share your information with third-party service providers who perform services and functions on our behalf to support our interactions with you, including providing our products and services, administering surveys or contests, or communicating with you.
We may share your information with third parties, including law enforcement authorities, if we determine that doing so is appropriate and in accordance with applicable law to:
If you choose to make a purchase (for example, a song), you will navigate away from the app and be directed to the third-party music source you selected. Any information you provide to such third party is provided by you directly to them, and is not received by Shazam.
Third-Party Advertisements and Analytics. Consistent with your permission, third parties, including advertisers, may collect information, potentially including personal information, about your activities over time and across different websites when you use our sites or apps. Those third parties may also provide us with data collection, reporting, ad-response measurement, analytical information, and assist with delivery of relevant marketing messages and advertisements.
Many third-party advertisers and some Web browsers and mobile devices allow you to opt out of third-party advertising. To learn more about interest-based advertising or to opt out of some types of interest-based advertising for participating ad networks, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiative (http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/), the Digital Advertising Alliance (http://www.aboutads.info/choices/), or for users in the EU, the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance’s Consumer Choice Page (http://www.youronlinechoices.eu). You may also opt out of tracking and receiving interest-based advertisements on your mobile device by some mobile advertising companies and other similar entities by downloading the App Choices app at http://www.aboutads.com/info/appchoices.
Social Networks. If you connect your Shazam account to any social network or music streaming service, including, but not limited to, Facebook, Google+ or Spotify, your name, birthdate, email address, gender, friend list, profile picture and playlists, along with other elements of your social network profile that you have made available may be shared with other Shazam users. Further, your Facebook friends/contacts may be able to use the Shazam apps to search for or view your Shazam profile and the data contained therein, such as your tags and other activity, including date/time. Please refer to the privacy settings in your social network or music streaming account for information about what data is shared with Shazam and other connected applications and to manage the data that is shared through your account, including information about your activities using our sites or apps. Go to the "preferences" screen to see your options to adjust the access levels to the data in your Shazam profile but, again, if you don't want a social network or music streaming service to gain access to your data, do not connect to that network via Shazam. If you would like to disconnect a social media or music streaming account from Shazam, refer to the settings of that social media or music streaming account and its provider.
Business Transfers and Corporate Changes. In the event that ownership of Shazam or an operator of one or more of the sites changes as a result of a merger, acquisition, or transfer to another company, your personal data may be transferred. If such a transfer results in a material change in the use of your personal data, then Shazam will provide you with appropriate notice.

If we become aware that we have inadvertently captured any personal data about a person who is under 13 years of age, we will take the appropriate steps to shut down the account of that person and promptly delete their information.
You can request to access, correct, update and delete your personal data at any time through the Shazam sites or apps or by sending us an email at email@example.com. Information about your use of the Shazam sites or apps that has been aggregated with other users cannot be deleted. We will do our best to respond to your request (upon verification of your identity) within a reasonable period of time.
E-mail.

Please note that even if you unsubscribe to commercial or marketing email messages, we may still communicate with you regarding your account or use of the services.
California Privacy Rights. California Civil Code Section 1798.83 also permits users who are California residents to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, a list of the third parties to whom we disclosed personal data (if any) for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year and the categories of data disclosed to those third parties. To make any sort of access request, please email or write to us using our Contact Us information.
From time to time, we, our advertisers, suppliers or other parties may conduct promotions and other activities on, through or in connection with the Services, including, without limitation, contests and sweepstakes (collectively, “Promotions”).

The security, integrity and confidentiality of your information are important to us. We have implemented technical, organizational and physical security measures that are designed to protect your information from unauthorized accidental or unlawful access, disclosure, use and modification.
