  1.  Information About Our Organization and App and General Data Collection Practices:

This Privacy Statement applies to the Livio Music App. Livio Music is owned by Livio, 332 E Lincoln, Suite 200, Royal Oak, Michigan 48067.

The business purpose of this App is to provide you the opportunity to listen to Apple Music, when and where you want if you have the needed equipment.  

Online Tracking Information

When you use this App analytics providers may collect information about your online activity over time and across apps and websites.

Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret web browser-based “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) signals other than cookies, Livio does not currently respond to undefined “DNT” signals to its US websites and apps.

Most settings can be configured not to accept cookies, however, this may prevent you from having access to some functions or services on our sites or apps.

See Sections 4 and 6 for more information.

  1.  Personally Identifiable Information Livio Collects From You:

During your use of this App, no personally identifiable information (such as name, address, email address and phone number) about you is collected through any means or data flow channels.  

  1. Other (Non-Personally Identifiable) Information Collected From App Users:

Livio Music collects other non-personally identifiable information from App users.  This means that these items are not tracked on an individual basis that identifies the App user, but rather information is gathered and collected on an aggregate or anonymous basis that includes all App users.  Non-personally identifiable information includes tracking the App pages that are visited or the amount of time spent on the App.   

This App may collect additional non-personally identifiable information which may include the type/model of the mobile device viewing the App and the mobile device’s service provider and operating system.

The primary goal in collecting non-personally identifiable information from you is to be able to perform App metrics that allow Livio to improve the functionality of the App.

Livio may use session and persistent “cookies,” session logs, spotlight ads/web beacons/GIF/pixel tags, banner ads or links, and third-party click tracking analytics tools (such as Crashlytics and Answers) to collect aggregate or other non-personally identifiable information about App users.  An explanation for each of these items and how they work is included in Section 7 – Methods to Collect Information below.    

Crashlytics and Answers are owned by Twitter.  Twitter is independently owned and operated, and data collected by Crashlytics and Answers are subject to the Crashlytics’ and Answers’ privacy policies.  We encourage you to review the Crashlytics privacy policy at and Answers privacy policy at so that you can understand how the data is collected, used and shared.  

  1.  How Livio Uses the Aggregate or Non-Personally Identifiable Information Collected:

Non-Personally identifiable information collected on Livio Music may be used to:

  • Compile aggregate and statistical data to help in App design and to identify popular features
  • Measure App activity to allow Livio to update our App to better meet user wants and needs
  • Provide you content that may be of interest to you based on pages visited and items viewed
  • Make the user experience more customer friendly
  • Develop new and improved products, services and marketing       

Livio Music utilizes non-personally identifiable information for the purpose of performing analytics on the user’s experience while using this App. This analysis:

  • Is performed on an aggregate level and does not identify you or your information personally
  • May involve the use of a third-party vendor acting on behalf of Livio Music
  • May be combined with data collected by third parties on other sites and apps and across devices
  • Is performed in order to improve the App and the user experience
  • May include the use of session and/or persistent cookies to track user movement across this and other Livio Apps or websites or to track other events within or across this App and other Livio websites
  1.  Methods to Collect Information:

A “cookie” is a small text file that helps us in many ways to make your visit to a website or use of an App more enjoyable and meaningful to you. For example, cookies avoid you having to log in every time you come back to a website or App. They also allow Livio to tailor a website or App or advertisement to better match your interests and preferences.  There are a couple different types of cookies.

A “session” cookie is stored only in your computer’s working memory (RAM) and only lasts for your browsing session. When you close all your browser’s windows, or when you shut down your device, the session cookie disappears forever.

A “persistent” cookie is stored on your computer’s hard drive until a specified date, which could be tomorrow, next week, or 10 years from now. Persistent cookies stay on your computer until either a) they expire, b) they are overwritten with newer cookies, or c) you manually remove them.  Most browsers can be configured not to accept cookies, however, this may prevent you from having access to some site or App functions or features.    

This App may use third-party click tracking analytics tools (such as Crashlytics and Answers) to capture clickthrough statistics. These parties may collect information about your use of the App and across different Apps and sites and mobile apps, and across devices over time.  

Livio Music may use spotlight ads/web beacons/GIF/pixel tags which are App instrumentation tools that help us to determine, for instance, whether a page has been viewed or not and, if so, how many times.  Emails or electronic newsletters we send may use tools (e.g., pixel tags or web beacons) to gather email metrics and information to improve the reader’s experience such as how many of the emails are opened, if they were printed or forwarded, the type of device (e.g., mobile or PC) from which they were opened, and the city, state, and county associated with the applicable IP address.  In general, any electronic image viewed as part of a webpage, including an ad banner, can act as a web beacon.  

This App may generate a “session log” when you utilize the app. Session logs are used to help us determine how people travel through sites or Apps. In this way, pages can be structured so that the information most frequently visited is easier to find. By tracking page visits, it can also be determined if the information provided is being used.  

Users may be directed to Livio Music via banner ads or site links.  Ads or site links that are placed by Livio Music use tools such as cookies or web beacons to deliver metrics on the effectiveness of the ads or links.  They do not collect personally identifiable information from the user.  

  1.  Sharing Your Information:

Livio Music does not share, sell, or rent personally identifiable information with independent companies for their own use without providing you a choice.

App metrics for Livio Music may be shared with other Livio websites or Apps or its subsidiaries or affiliates.
