What information might be collected
By and large, we know very little about anyone who simply visits this site. Our web server automatically records general things about visitors to the site (this is done automatically by most web hosts). These things include the visitor IP, what web browser and operating system they're using, and in some cases what site referred them to our website, and what pages they load.
In order to understand and improve how our site serves visitors we use the open source web analytics tool Matomo to view statistics about how people use the site. It collects similar data to the things collected by the server log but offers an easier way for us to see the information. Matomo also records information about which songs and vidoes get played and whether subscribers receive our newsletters, it uses a cookie to let us see if visitors are visiting for the first time or are a returning visitor. If you would rather not be included in our analytics we have provided the opt-out form below to disable it.
Opt-out of Analytics
Other than the generic information mentioned above, we only collect information visitors give us intentionally. For example, we have a list of people who have signed up to get news and updates from Sunship. There's a form on the right sidebar of the home page where visitors can put in their email address if they want to be notified of future events and the like. If you've signed up already and would like to be removed from the list, just send us an email through the contact page and we'll remove your name and email address.
We also collect information when you make purchases through the web site's secure ordering system. All the information that goes along with a purchase (name and address, email, phone, credit card info, etc.) is transmitted over a special secure connection known as SSL (this is indicated by the "https:" at the beginning of the address, and the padlock icon in your browser). SSL means that your info is put into a very complex computer-generated code before it's sent over the internet from your computer to our web host.
Sunship Productions doesn't generally let out any information about our customers and visitors to third parties. We may occasionally use the contact information collected on Sunship.com to let people know about projects that are related to Sunship Productions and done by the same people who operate Sunship.com, but not undertaken by Sunship Productions specifically. In addition, there is always the possibility that we'll be required to hand over some information to a law enforcement agency of some kind.
Viewing, changing or deleting your information
If you'd like to know what information we might have about you, just send us an email through the contact page. If there are any errors in the information we would be happy to correct them at your request, or if you'd like your information to be deleted from our records, we can do that too.
Specific for the Solaris Music App
In addition to the above the Solaris Music App uses Google Firebase to send app notifications. Firebase collects information about apps being registered for push notifications.
