You should know what “personal data” (i.e. information that relates to you and enables you to be identified) we collect from you and how we use it. This issue is very important to us, so we have set out full details in this policy. When we refer to “your information” below, we are referring to this concept of “personal data”.

This Privacy Statement governs your use of the Site and our services and products which are defined below.

IDENTIFICATION OF DATA CONTROLLER
WHO ARE WE?
Our full legal name is New Audio LLC, but we trade under the name Master & Dynamic. We are a limited liability company registered in the United States of America, in the state of New York. Our contact details are at the bottom of this Privacy Statement.
Master & Dynamic is the producer and seller of high end, beautifully designed and technically sophisticated headphone "sound tools" ("Products" and "Services") for creative minds.

We are proud to offer our Products and Services for sale on our e-commerce platform to users in markets across the globe.
We are what is known as the ‘data controller’ of the information that you provide to us and this means that we determine the purpose and means of processing any personal data which you provide to us or which is gathered by any of the Sites.
PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT AND USE TO PROVIDE THE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
We gather and use your personal data to provide you with information about our Products and Services, to provide you with superior customer service and to support and enhance our relationship with you. For example, we may communicate offers on Products and Services that we believe will be of interest to you and to administer our business or to offer you information on events or special opportunities or offers when you sign up and share your personal data with us. We may also gather your personal data, when you purchase and/or register our Products.
Other than the technologies referred to in the Cookies section below, we do not collect any personal data about you unless you choose to provide it to us voluntarily. “Personal data” refers to information that is unique to you and that may identify you directly or indirectly, such as your phone number, email address, first and last name, credit card information, company name, address, location information, and IP address information. Generally, we need this information to process and fulfill your order and notify you of your order status.
Other examples of when we may ask you to voluntarily provide personal data include if you subscribe to receive emails from us (information such as your name and e-mail address), or choose to provide us with your preference information (such as interests, product preferences, and items purchased) or visit our Site (such as your IP address and communications to us).
The types of personal data we collect may include, but is not limited to, the following:
- Your name, e-mail address(es), phone number(s), fax number(s), work and/or home address;
- Information that will allow us to complete a transaction and process your orders for Product and Services. This would include your shipping and billing information, credit card information or other preferred payment means, history of purchases;
- Information about your use of the Site. This would include your IP address, your frequency of use of the Site, your responses to individual offerings, the types of features you most use; and
- Customer service information or general account information. This would include communications between you and us and your account preferences.
If you encounter a screen or page that requests personal data you do not want to share with us, you may choose not to enter the information and not to proceed with that screen or page. Some data may be collected automatically through technical means when you visit the Site, including your IP address, date and time of access, browser type and version, operating system, and URL of the website you visited prior to the Site. This automatically collected data is logged and stored separately from other information you may transmit to us. This automatically collected information is collected for purposes of security, troubleshooting, and statistics and is retained in a manner not associated with a particular individual.
USE OF PERSONAL DATA COLLECTED ON THIS SITE
The personal data we collect on this Site will be used to provide the Products or Services or carry out the transaction(s) you have requested or authorized. In support of these uses, we may use personal data to provide you with more effective customer service, to improve the Site and any related Products or Services, and to make the Site easier to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the same information or by customizing the Site to your particular preference or interests.
We may use your personal information to provide you with important information about the Products or Services that you are using, including critical updates and notifications. Additionally, when you provide us with your permission, we may share personal information with our trusted partners so they may send you information about their Products and Services.
As set forth below, we partner with other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as website hosting, fulfilling orders, packaging, mailing, email marketing and sending information about our products, special offers, credit card processing, and other services. We will only provide those companies the personal data they need to deliver the service. These companies do not to our knowledge, retain, share, store or use personal data for any secondary purposes. You can learn more about the data protection measures employed by the individual companies we utilize by reviewing the IDENTIFICATION OF DATA PROCESSORS section of this Privacy Statement.
We may share your personal data within New Audio and its business divisions. Your information will not be shared with third parties unless it is necessary to fulfill a transaction you have requested, or in other circumstances in which you have consented to the sharing of your personal information.
We may use your personal data to present offers to you on behalf of our business partners. These business partners may receive aggregate data about groups of users, but do not receive information that personally identifies you.
We may also use the personal data collected for internal purposes, namely, for solving technical problems, calculating overall usage statistics, internal marketing and promotional purposes, product development and content improvement.
We may disclose personal data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) comply with the law or with legal process served on us or the Site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of the New Audio; or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of our employees or agents, users of our Sites, Products or Services, or members of the public. We will cooperate with law enforcement authorities.
We reserve the right to transfer your personal data in the event of a transfer of ownership, such as acquisition by or merger with another company. In such an event, we will notify you before information is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy statement. We also encourage you to periodically check this page for Privacy Statement updates.
