GDPR & Feature.fm

1. ABOUT GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) is the primary law regulating how companies protect EU citizens’ personal data which went into effect on May 25th, 2018.
 
You can learn more about GDPR at their official site.
 
Feature.fm is compliant with GDPR. Feature.fm's Privacy Policy explains how we use and protect Personally Identifiable Information (PII) as a Data Process and in some cases, a Data Controller.

2. HOW FEATURE.FM MANAGES CONSENT

Feature.fm has implemented a consent method to collect and treat personal data that includes:
  • Giving or withdrawing consent to tracking
  • Giving or withdrawing consent to PII collection and email marketing
  • Additional information over what cookies are used for and by whom

Giving Consent for Remarketing Pixels and Cookies

First, when fans navigate to a Feature.fm landing page, they will be asked to consent to cookies or can manage their permissions to opt out.

Managing permissions settings

At any time, fans can navigate to a dynamic Privacy Settings tab to manage their permissions settings or opt-out completely.

Collecting emails and sending marketing communications
 
GDPR requires fans in the EU to explicitly opt in to receive email messages from Feature.fm's clients who are the Data Controllers. After a fan takes an action that may collect their email address, they are presented with an option to opt in to receive future marketing emails.
 
Feature.fm will not collect the email or names of fans who do not opt in.

Viewing and protecting fan email addresses
 
To view your list of fan email addresses in your Feature.fm dashboard, Feature.fm is implementing a 2-Factor Authentication log in process that verifies your identity to protect fan data. 
 
When you view your list of emails in your campaign or audience tab, you'll notice that there are some users that are listed anonymously. These are fans who did not opt in to receive emails.

Feature.fm customers are allowed to email fans who have opted in. Any email addresses that you are able to view are from fans who opted in. If a fan later opts-out, then their email address will updated to be anonymous.
 
Furthermore, fans may reach out directly to Data Controllers to be removed from your mailing list and have their data deleted. As Data Controllers, Feature.fm customers must comply with all data protection laws and accommodate fans who wish to have their data deleted or updated per Feature.fm's Privacy Policy.

3. “PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION” (PII)

Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context.
 
General examples of PII are:
