GDPR Compliance

GDPR Frequently Asked Questions

Virtual Sheet Music intends and expects to comply with GDPR by its effective date on 25 May 2018, including having a legal basis under Article 6 GDPR for processing any personal data.


2. How do Virtual Sheet Music Software as a Service products process personal data?

Minimally, if at all. Virtual Sheet Music has just one single Software as a Service (SaaS) offering which is called Virtual Sheet Music Membership. Virtual Sheet Music Membership is a service that offers musicians the ability to access and download sheet music and related media for free or a very discounted prices.

Virtual Sheet Music doesn't share any personal information data with anyone and doens't show it publicly on his website. Subscribers have full control of their data throught their own Control Panel and other tools we provide as part of their own subscription.


3. Is sensitive data stored within Virtual Sheet Music tools or website?

Virtual Sheet Music does not currently believe that it processes, let alone seeks or expect that it will seek to process, any personal data that is subject to Article 9 GDPR, "Processing of special categories of personal data," which, in reference to GDPR, is generally referred to as "sensitive personal data."


4. Are you a data processor, as you store and organize data from other sources?

Virtual Sheet Music currently does not believe it is a data processor for a data controller, necessitating that it enter into customary and compliant data processing agreements with data controllers. However, should that change, in order to comply with GDPR, Virtual Sheet Music believes that both Virtual Sheet Music as a data processor and the data controller will need to enter into a compliant data processor agreement.


5. Is Virtual Sheet Music able or will Virtual Sheet Music be able to respond to data subject requests under GDPR?

Yes, absolutely.


6. In particular, if I am a data subject and Virtual Sheet Music is a data controller to my personal data, can Virtual Sheet Music comply with my request "to be forgotten"?

Yes. However, a data subject should understand the consequences of such a request.

For example, with respect to any personal data that provides the necessary contact details in order to administer a subscription for a subscriber that is an organization, Virtual Sheet Music will need to replace the contact information within its system in order to manage the subscriber's subscription and account.

For any subscribers who are individuals, complying with a request to be forgotten will of course cause a permanent termination of the subscriber's account and subscription as well as removal of any other personal data from their own mailing list. Virtual Sheet Music also often tries to "win-back" terminated or expired subscribers with discount offers, and eliminating or permanently "forgetting" personal data will eliminate Virtual Sheet Music's ability to make any such offers to the data subject.

If you are a data subject and and have requests of Virtual Sheet Music under GDPR related to your individual rights in your personal data, including a "request to be forgotten/for erasure," "rectification," etc., please Contact Us. Virtual Sheet Music will promptly review your request and respond to you.  


7. Which personal data does your company collect?

Most of the personal data that Virtual Sheet Music collects occurs in the user or subscriber account creation process, the payment and administration process, as well as the customer care and success processes including our double-opt-in system for our own Newsletter from which the user can unsubscribe at any time. Collected data on our systems typically consists of: subscriber or account-holder contact email address; display name (name or nick name); and data required to make a purchase, such as credit card details and billing information, including cardholder first and last name and billing address. PLEASE NOTE though that Virtual Sheet Music doesn't store credit card numbers. They are processed in realtime by our credit card processor PayPal.

Therefore, Virtual Sheet Music does not collect or process any sensitive personal data. 

Virtual Sheet Music's efforts to identify all existing and any new sources of personal data collection are ongoing toward being compliant with GDPR by 25 May 2018.


8. Where are the headquarters of your company?

Virtual Sheet Music is headquartered in Laguna Niguel, California, USA.


9. Are your contracts, Terms of Use, and Privacy Policies aligned with the GDPR?

Yes.


10. Are you offering data storage and all processing for your EU customers to take place within the EU?

As Virtual Sheet Music is headquartered in the United States and is not "established" anywhere in the EU, it does not see any advantage in hosting personal data in the EU, since Virtual Sheet Music will have no personnel in the EU to process any of the personal data in order to perform its obligations to its subscribers. 


11. Are you willing to sign the mandatory data processing agreement?

As answered in Question 4 (above), Virtual Sheet Music currently does not believe it is a data processor for a data controller, necessitating that it enter into customary and compliant data processing agreements with data controllers. However, should that change, in order to comply with GDPR, Virtual Sheet Music believes that both Virtual Sheet Music as a data processor and the data controller will need to enter into a compliant data processor agreement.
