Information stored by Audiablo

Some information we store is collected automatically, while other information is entered by the user, at their discretion. While we store the information we are provided, we cannot always guarantee its accuracy or if it relates to a real person. For example, a user may have created a fake profile, or provided us with inaccurate information. We do not require the use of real names, email verification or identity authentication.

Our guiding principles

We believe in respecting both our users’ rights and the laws which govern our company’s operations. When it comes to processing information requests related to our users, we follow the below principles.

We will comply with valid requests for user information received from law enforcement, in accordance with the terms outlined in this guide and the applicable legal process.
We are based in Berlin, Germany and will therefore process all disclosure requests pursuant to our Privacy Policy and the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany.

We require that all requests be related to specific accounts, implicated in specific investigations undertaken by law enforcement. We reserve the right to reject requests which are overly broad or which lack details regarding the relationship between the requested information and how it relates to an ongoing investigation.

User notice
We respect our users’ rights and privacy. Our policy is to notify users when we disclose their information in all cases, unless we are expressly requested to not disclose by the competent authority. Our notice to users will be in writing and will include a copy of the original document(s) requesting their information. Additionally, if the request relates to a user who is in violation of our Terms of Use, we reserve the right to prevent further abuse of our services, including notifying the user regarding their misconduct.

In exceptional circumstances, we may elect to not provide user notice e.g. in the case of an emergency disclosure request.
