Home Normal is a small 東京 founded record label. 

We love minimalism + creative souls. 

ABOUT US

Home Normal is a small independent record label based in Tokyo, Japan. It was founded in 2009 to release small editions of music we feel is organic, timeless and soulful. We term the music we release as 'organic minimalism'. The label is run by a group of friends in Tokyo on a very slow schedule with each release funding the next. Our releases are exclusively distributed through P*Dis / Inpartmaint, and are currently only available in stores across Japan. Our online store is hosted on the excellent Bandcamp platform and this lovely little website is hosted on the Wix platform.

So whilst we agree it is important to have a privacy policy as we run an open website and Bandcamp, Wix, et el process any information you provide securely, we want to take this opportunity to be very very clear that we will NEVER process your information in any way that invades your privacy. We have no interest in collecting and passing on your private information to any third parties nor ever will, and quite why a teeny-tiny Japan-based label would do this is beyond us but still. When you buy a product from our Bandcamp store, or online through streaming or digital purchases on Spotify or Apple for example, they retain whatever info as is obvious really and we have zero control over that. We will ONLY contact you if you request more information directly from us on an individual level about our work, or about missing orders (which again is through Bandcamp.com), and other such specific requests. 

Now we don't fully understand these things either but as part of GDPR we need to state the following (see below). The simple truth is we don't actively collect anything - if you kindly place an order through our store we have your address and email so we can post something to you, but that's it. Nonetheless...here it goes:

PRIVACY POLICY

We receive, collect and store any information you enter on our website or provide us in any other way. In addition, we collect the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet; login; e-mail address; password; computer and connection information and purchase history through our online store on the Bandcamp.com platform. We may use software tools to measure and collect session information through the Wix.com platform who hosts this website, including page response times, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information, and methods used to browse away from the page. We also collect personally identifiable information (including name, email, password, communications); payment details (including credit card information), comments, feedback, product reviews, recommendations, and personal profile.

When you conduct a transaction on our website or store partner, (Bandcamp) as part of the process, we collect personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address. Your personal information will be used for the specific reasons stated above ONLY.

We collect such Non-personal and Personal Information for the following purposes:

  1. To provide and operate the Services;

  2. To provide our Users with ongoing customer assistance and technical support;

  3. To be able to contact our Visitors and Users with general or personalized service-related notices and promotional messages;

  4. To comply with any applicable laws and regulations.

Our website is hosted on the Wix.com platform, whilst our online store is hosted on the Bandcamp.com platform. Wix.com provides us with the online platform that allows us to connect and promote our products to you, whilst Bandcamp.com allows us to sell our physical and digital products. Your data may be stored through Wix.com’s data storage, databases and the general Wix.com applications. They store your data on secure servers behind a firewall. 

We do not sell products directly on the Wix.com platform but rather link through to Bandcamp, Apple, Spotify, and Soundcloud. Any future direct payment gateways offered by Wix.com and used by Home Normal will adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.

We may contact you to notify you regarding your orders on Bandcamp only. This will simply be to troubleshoot problems with your orders, to resolve a dispute, to send updates about our work, or as otherwise necessary to contact you regarding any agreement we may have with you. For these purposes we may contact you via email or postal mail.

If you no longer want us to process your data anymore, please contact us at info[at]homenormal[dot]com

We reserve the right to modify this privacy policy at any time, so please review it frequently. Changes and clarifications will take effect immediately upon their posting on the website.
