If you have any questions, comments or concerns about any aspect of this policy or how Cambridge Audio handles your information please email us at [email protected].

Privacy principles

Privacy policies can be complicated. We have tried to make ours as clear and as accessible as possible. To help, we have also summarised how we handle your personal information at Cambridge Audio in our privacy principles below. These principles demonstrate our commitment to protecting your privacy and handling your personal information in the right way and as you would expect it to be handled.

At Cambridge Audio we:

  • Will only ask for or collect the personal information we need to provide and improve the service, products and experiences our customers expect.
  • Give you control over the personal information we hold about you to ensure it is accurate and reflects your preferences.
  • Make sure your personal information is always secure and protected.
  • Are fair and transparent about how we use the personal information we hold.
  • Only ever use your personal information for the purpose that you trusted us to use it for.
  • Will never sell your personal information and only share it as outlined in our privacy policy or when you ask us to.
  • Respect your choices and will inform you if there are important changes that affect your personal information or how we use it.
  • Take responsibility for the personal information that we hold about you.

What personal information do we collect?

We are not interested in collecting every personal detail about you. Our main reason for collecting your personal information is to provide and improve the service, products and experiences that you and our customers expect from us.

Personal information is defined slightly differently across the world. To guarantee your privacy and the protection of your information, we define it as any information that could be used to identify you or another individual.

We collect personal information from you in a number of different ways; you may share that information with us, or we may collect it using other means. In this section, we explain the different ways we collect personal information from you and some ways in which that information will be used. For more detail on how we use your personal information, please see the section titled "How do we use your personal information?".

Information you share with us

We collect personal information that you share with us when you contact us or interact with us through our website, apps, email, phone or otherwise. You can decide not to provide certain information, or ask that any information you have previously shared is removed. If you do so, you may not be able to take full advantage of our products, technology and service.

For example, you may provide information to us when you contact our customer service teams, place an order, register your warranty, complete a survey, competition or questionnaire, update your preferences and account information, connect through a Cambridge Audio app or rate one of our products on our website.

Through these interactions you may share with us: your name, address, e-mail address, contact number and payment information. You may also share details of other people; for example, if you have bought a product for that other person. In those circumstances, you will need to check with that person that they are happy for you to share their personal information with us, and for us to use it in accordance with this privacy policy.

Information from Cambridge Audio products and apps

As well as the personal information you share with us about yourself and your Cambridge Audio product, we may collect and handle personal information directly from your Cambridge Audio connected products and Cambridge Audio apps. A connected product is a Cambridge Audio product that is “smart”, internet enabled or operated through a Cambridge Audio app.

We collect data from your device to allow us to improve our products. All data is stored securely in the European Union and only handled by us. We do not pass any data to third parties.

We collect data for the following uses:

Software update: To provide software upgrades to your devices we use the unit ID and model number to select what software the device should be running. We also aggregate upgrade data to allow us to monitor the update to software updates.

Crash reports: These allow us to improve the software on the units by understanding when, how and how often the software crashes. As well as looking at aggregated data, we will look at individual crash reports to fix specific bugs, or in response to customer support queries. The crash data includes information on what the device is doing just before the crash and other UPnP devices on the network.

Usage data: This includes what sources you use for how long, but not what you are playing, and various settings of the device (for example: language, network standby mode). This data is aggregated to allow us to understand how our products are used.

Some of our connected products may not be able to operate without collecting location information, or other personal information, and so by registering for the app and using a connected product you agree to this use of the information.

From time to time, Cambridge Audio may aggregate and/or anonymize any information collected through the services so that such information can no longer be linked to you or your device (“Aggregate/Anonymous Information”). We may use Aggregate/Anonymous Information for any purpose, including without limitation for research and marketing purposes.

Information from your online interactions

We collect and handle information from all visitors to our websites, whether you actively provide us with that information or merely browse our websites. The information we collect includes the internet protocol (IP) address of the device you are using, the browser software you use, your operating system, the date and time of access, the internet address of the website from which you link through to our website and information on how you use our websites.

We use this information so that we can see how long our websites take to load, how they are used, the number of visitors to the different sections of our websites, and what information visitors look at most.

We also collect and handle information about how you engage with our promotional campaigns and advertising online, outside of our own websites (for example, on Google, YouTube or on social media).

That information is, predominantly, collected through our use of cookies and similar technologies.

Certain features of our services make it possible for you to share comments publicly with other users. Any information that you submit through such features is not confidential, and Cambridge Audio may use it for any purpose (including in testimonials or other marketing materials). For example, if you submit a product review on one of our sites, we may display your review (along with the name provided, if any) on other Cambridge Audio websites and on third-party websites

From time to time, Cambridge Audio may aggregate and/or anonymize any information collected through the services so that such information can no longer be linked to you or your device (“Aggregate/Anonymous Information”). We may use Aggregate/Anonymous Information for any purpose, including without limitation for research and marketing purposes.

As long as you are happy for us to do so, we would also like to keep you posted on anything that's happening at Cambridge Audio which we think you might like to know about; whether it’s our latest product announcements, owner offers or upcoming events, we want to make sure you’re happy with the communications you receive from us. You can find out how to update or change whether you would like to hear from us, or stop us contacting you, in the section below titled ‘How can you change the way that we contact you?'

We collect information about how you engage with our e-mails; including whether they are delivered to you, whether you open them, whether you choose to learn more about what's happening at Cambridge Audio (for example, by clicking on a link in our e-mail) and if you ask us not to contact you anymore (by clicking on the unsubscribe option included in all our e-mail correspondence).

We use that information by itself and in combination with our customer record (the information you share with us) to make sure that we stop sending you support or marketing communications when you ask us to. We also use it to make our e-mails as interesting as possible by providing you with content and experiences that we think you may be interested in based on how you have engaged with our previous e-mails; you have the right to object to our use of your information for this purpose (see the section below titled 'Your controls and choices').

We use the 3rd party company MailChimp to send and manage information emails that we send to you. The collected information is transferred to MailChimp and processed by MailChimp and certain of MailChimp’s sub-processors.

MailChimp’s Privacy Policy can be reviewed at https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/

What personal information does Cambridge Audio share with third parties?

Most importantly, we never sell your personal information to anyone and only share it as outlined in this privacy policy or when you ask us to.

Third parties who provide services on our behalf

We share your personal information with certain third parties who provide services on our behalf. They only have access to the personal information they need to perform those services. They are required to keep your personal information confidential and may not use it other than as we ask them to and always in accordance with this privacy policy.

Third parties who provide services on our behalf

  • Other Audio Partnership Plc companies which may be located outside of your country of residence;
  • Our distributors, who help us to sell our products in certain countries;
  • Those helping us to deliver products to you;
  • Third parties that help us with mailing services, product services and repairs, processing product purchases, financial services, audit services, administrative services, IT technologies (e.g. data storage), security services and insurance claims;
  • Third parties that help us to provide services and responses to you;
  • Third parties that assist us with our marketing, helping us to understand how well our online advertising works, to reach people who are more interested in Cambridge Audio products, by setting cookies on our websites (more information on this can be found in our cookies policy cookies policy;
  • Social media platforms who serve our advertising on their platforms on our behalf (and who we may securely share your personal information with in order to serve this advertising to both you and/or others).

We also share certain personal information with third parties who help us to detect and prevent fraudulent transactions. The information we share with those third parties includes some of the information that you share with us (such as, your contact details and information about the transaction), and some of the information from your online interactions (such as the IP address of your device).

If you would like more information on how we share your personal information, please email us at [email protected]

Interaction of connected products with third party products

We have added functionality to some of our connected products which allows your Cambridge Audio product to interact with certain third-party services.

If you choose to allow your Cambridge Audio device to interact with a third-party product (e.g. Spotify), certain information (including potentially personal information) will need to be shared with the third party product and the relevant third party provider. Generally, we will need to share a unique reference number to connect the two products, and information about your product and how you use it. We only share the minimum amount of personal information that we need to, to enable the two products to interact (e.g., to display your recently-played Spotify playlist within Cambridge Audio connected products and mobile applications). Details of how the third party uses your personal information (as well as any personal information which it collects through its own product) are set out in the third party's privacy policy. You should carefully review third parties' privacy policies before using their products, and before connecting them with your Cambridge Audio product. You can stop your Cambridge Audio connected product from sharing information with the third-party product by disabling the connection between the two.

If you want to find out more about what information is shared between your Cambridge Audio product, and a third party product, please email us at [email protected]

The Legal Bases for Using Personal Information

There are different legal bases that we rely on to use your personal information, namely:

The use of your personal information may be necessary to perform the agreement you have with us. For example, to complete your purchase of a product, to register and maintain your account, to help with delivery issues, to handle returns, and to make sure that your product performs its basic functions in a secure way or to respond to your requests.

The Legal Bases for Using Personal Information

How long do we keep your personal information?

In specific situations, we require your data to pursue our legitimate interests in a way which might reasonably be expected as part of running our business and which does not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests. For example, we rely on our legitimate interest to analyse and improve our products and services and the content on our websites and app, or to use your personal information for administrative, fraud detection or legal purposes.

Where we process your personal information based on our legitimate interest and no opt-out mechanism is available to you, you may exercise your right to object by sending an email to [email protected]

  • ask us to limit or restrict our use of your personal information;
  • ask us to remove or delete personal information about you;

We are committed to protecting your personal information. We use appropriate technical and organisational measures, including encryption, to protect your personal information and privacy, and review those regularly. We protect your personal information using a combination of physical and IT security controls, including access controls that restrict and manage the way in which your personal information and data is processed, managed and handled. However, no method of transmission over the internet, and no means of electronic or physical storage, is absolutely secure. As such, you acknowledge and accept that we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to, through, or on our services or via the Internet and that any such transmission is at your own risk.

We also ensure that our staff are adequately trained in protecting your personal information. Our procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we share your personal information with you.

Cambridge Audio is headquartered in the United Kingdom (UK).

We collect personal information in the country in which you live. We then host and store that information in the European Economic Area (EEA). Those third parties that we share your personal information with may handle or transfer your personal information outside of the UK, and outside of the EEA, to other countries in which they have facilities.

We will make sure that both any transfer of your personal information by us or by the third parties that we share your personal information with, and our handling of your personal information, complies with those laws which apply to us. In any case, our transfer, storage and handling of your personal information will continue to be governed by this privacy policy.

By submitting your personal information to us, and by using our websites, apps or connected products, you agree to us transferring, storing and handling your personal information in this way.

Email Communications

As a user of our products or services, we will send you communications by e-mail.

As long as you are happy for us to do so, we would also like to keep you posted on anything that's happening at Cambridge Audio which we think you might like to know about; whether it’s our latest product announcements, owner offers or upcoming events, we want to make sure you’re happy with the communications you receive from us. You can find out how to update or change whether you would like to hear from us, or stop us contacting you, in the section below titled ‘How can you change the way that we contact you?'

We collect information about how you engage with our e-mails; including whether they are delivered to you, whether you open them, whether you choose to learn more about what's happening at Cambridge Audio (for example, by clicking on a link in our e-mail) and if you ask us not to contact you anymore (by clicking on the unsubscribe option included in all our e-mail correspondence).

We use that information by itself and in combination with our customer record (the information you share with us) to make sure that we stop sending you support or marketing communications when you ask us to. We also use it to make our e-mails as interesting as possible by providing you with content and experiences that we think you may be interested in based on how you have engaged with our previous e-mails; you have the right to object to our use of your information for this purpose (see the section below titled 'Your controls and choices').

We use the 3rd party company MailChimp to send and manage information emails that we send to you. The collected information is transferred to MailChimp and processed by MailChimp and certain of MailChimp’s sub-processors.

MailChimp’s Privacy Policy can be reviewed at https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/

Social Media

We love interacting with you on social media. You may use social media to contact us about your Cambridge Audio products, or to let people know what you think about your Cambridge Audio product. We review publicly available social media and online sites to get a better understanding of what people are saying about us, and our products, technology and services and to assist consumers who prefer to contact us through social media.

The information we collect from social media and online sites sometimes includes personal information that has been put online and is publicly available. We make sure any information we use is properly credited to its source or is made anonymous.

These online and social media sites may have their own privacy policies explaining how they use and share your personal information. You should carefully review those privacy policies before you use these sites to make sure that you are happy with how your personal information is being collected and shared.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer or mobile phone (referred to here as a "device") browser from a website's computer and is stored on your device's hard drive. There are various types of cookies which perform different functions, such as remembering which items you have placed in your shopping basket or recording your browsing habits. The information recorded by the cookie is retrieved on the user's next visit to the site.

How we use cookies

Many cookies on our websites perform essential functions; for example, remembering which items you have placed in your shopping basket.

Other cookies are not essential, but they help us understand how our websites are used by visitors, so that we can improve what we do online. We use Web Analytics tools for this. They look at things like how long our websites take to load, how they are used, and what information visitors to our sites look at most. They also help identify any parts of our websites that aren't working as well as they should - so we can fix things and make our websites better for you and other users.

A third type of cookie lets us know how well our online advertising works, and where we should place our online advertisements. These cookies let us know if one of our advertisements on another website like Google or Yahoo has sent a visitor to our website.

We may also use cookies to help us reach people who are more interested in Cambridge Audio products. So if you visit a Cambridge Audio website you may see our advertisements on other sites. This is known as remarketing or behavioural advertising.

We do not link information collected from cookies with any records we may have of you as a customer of Cambridge Audio.
