Resonance is a social network for music – allowing you to experience music with friends and family. To make this happen, we collect certain information from your device, use the information in generating content and recommendations on Resonance and selectively share this content and recommendations with your social network.
Your privacy is important to us. We recognize your right to confidentiality and are committed to protecting your privacy. We use the information that we collect to provide you with the best experience possible in offering personalized music content and recommendations and to communicate with you about our products and services.
The data collected by Resonance varies depending on how you use Resonance. For the purposes of data collection, the use of Resonance can be differentiated into whether a user is logged in with their Facebook Account on Resonance (“Logged In”) or not (“Logged Out”).
In order to better design the experience and diagnose technical issues, we collect anonymized information about your usage of Resonance and the performance of Resonance, which may include, but is not limited to, buttons pressed, screen time, library statistics, and music played (“Analytics Data”). This Analytics Data is collected regardless of whether the user is Logged In or Logged Out. Analytics Data collection can be disabled from the Settings menu in Resonance.
We collect different types of data for generating content and recommendations in Resonance. Representative use cases include but are not limited to the following:
In order to generate personalized recommendations for a user’s library, data about a user’s library contents such as artists, albums, songs and playlists in the user’s iTunes library (“Library Data”) are collected anonymously. The collection of Library Data is ephemeral (not stored in a database) and anonymized and happens regardless of whether the user is Logged In or Logged Out. Users will be prompted to provide Resonance with consent to access the user’s iTunes library and Apple Music Subscription information.
When setting up an account with Resonance, a user will log in with their Facebook account. During the initial log in, the user will be asked to determine what Facebook account data can be shared with Resonance.

If a user is Logged In, data on what songs they are playing is automatically collected with user details as the user plays songs (“Song Play(s)”). This collected information is stored in databases and combined with other song plays to generate personalized music content and recommendations for the Logged In user and their friends.
When Logged In, a user can view, play, and interact with the music content and recommendations generated by Resonance. The interactions are in a social context and include, but are not limited to, commenting on a friend’s Song Play, Heart a friend’s Song Play, Singing Along a song for their friends, or Resonating a friend’s Song Play.
