As part of this policy Fronic Media is committed to the following:

2. Collecting Data
When collecting personal data that we control we rely on the following legal basis:
Consent: We will specifically ask you if we can use your data, and explain to you how it will be used e.g. promo or news letter opt in consent
Contractual obligations: If we need to use your data in order to carry out business relating to an existing contract or business relationship we have with you e.g. collecting payment details in order to pay artists
Legal Compliance: We may need to collect and pass on certain details to meet legal obligations e.g. your country of residence for tax purposes.
Legitimate interest: In some situations we collect data in a way which might reasonably be expected as part of running our business and which does not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests. e.g. storing your IP addresses to prevent fraud
We take the security or all data we hold seriously, the following outlines some of the precautions taken to ensure the security of data held by the company, it is not an exhaustive list:
- All client systems are protected by SSL encryption
- Sensitive data (such as passwords and payment details) stored on Fronic Media servers is encrypted before storage
- Client data will not be transferred to 3rd parties unless prior written consent is given by the client, it is required by law, or is required to undertake business activities as previously agreed with by the client
- Data should only be accessible to those who are authorized to view it, in most cases this is achieved via username and password access restrictions e.g. to databases and client systems.
- All data used as part of the operation of client Fronic Media systems is stored on servers.
