Welcome to Bandbiz!
During the course of your use of the Website, Apps and Services, we may request certain Personal Information to enhance your use of the Website and Services. “Personal Information” is any information which identifies an individual. For example, when you create a trial account, we store your project name, user name and email address in our database. Paid users also have their billing information and full name stored. We use Paypal, a third party payment processor, so we do not store your credit card or banking information. The information we collect may be used to provide you with customer support, send you communications such as special offers, promotions, bill you for the Services (if applicable), and email updates on the Services.
We also store activity within the website and apps, including income/expense transactions, inventory levels, reports and calendar events. In no situation will we ever release any of this information to anyone, unless it is required by law enforcement. This type of data may be aggregated with numerous other account data and averaged out in an attempt to better the experience of Bandbiz users.Non-personal information & Aggregated Data
