Sunhouse data policy
What data does Sunhouse collect?
Sunhouse collects the following data from the user’s Sensory Percussion session:
- Metadata about how the software is being used, for example:
- What channels are being used
- What pads are being trained with how many training hits per pad
- The name of the training model used as well as the metadata about the drum type (e.g. kick-mesh 18”)
- The acoustic response directly from the sensor (i.e. the audio from the sensors that our algorithm processes)
What data is not collected:
- User name or email
- Computer name or ID
- IP Address
- Any user samples or files
Why is Sunhouse collecting data?
Data collection is very important to us here at Sunhouse because it allows us to continue to both improve the way our software performs and bring powerful new features by analyzing data about the sound of our user’s drums. We don’t collect any personal information, just the acoustic response of the sensor on your drum and some metadata about the audio settings.
What is the legal basis for processing the data?
Sunhouse takes data privacy very seriously and has gone to great lengths to ensure all data collected is fully anonymized. No piece of data we collect can be associated with any particular user. As per Recital 26 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation fully anonymized data is outside the scope of the principles of data protection as laid out by EU law.
Will the data be shared with any third parties?
Sunhouse will not sell this data to any third parties. However, Sunhouse has relationships with research institutions (New York University, Carnegie Mellon University, and University of California at San Diego) and may in the future provide curated data sets for joint research to further the field of Music Information Retrieval. All data is already fully anonymized and there is no way for any user to be linked to any piece of data.
How long will the data be stored for?
Data is currently stored indefinitely on Sunhouse’s servers.
What rights does the data subject have?
Sensory Percussion users can opt-out of data collection at any time from the User Preferences panel inside the software. Data that has already been collected cannot be deleted or sent to the user because it is fully anonymized. There is no way to associate any data with any specific user.
