I would like to delete my account due to your new privacy policy

Hello Spotify,

There doesn't seem to be an easy way of closing an account or deleting an account. I would like all my information removed and proof that it has been. I would like to close my account due to the recent changes in your privacy policy, I feel they are far too over-reaching.

Thanks

Found the link

Also would be cool if you can confirm that all my personal information is removed and deleted

 

Spotify is not cool. Not anymore.

 

Hi @user-removed and @User2232334!

 

Please take a look at this new blog post, from our CEO, Daniel Ek. He explains everything, and we're sorry for the confusion and miscommunication of the new Terms and Conditions.

Like ciaranmcnally asked, can you confirm that all our personal information is removed and deleted after account deletion?

Too late. He should have thought of this before listening to the good idea fairy and mucking with customer privacy! If I wanted to deal with bs privacy settings, etc, I would be on Facebook trying to stream music!

"Confusion" and "miscommunication" = " We're backpedaling! ". Looks like your attempt at even more profits just cost you a lot of future revenue... Greed sucks, doesn't it?

Yeah, it says "Spotify is a social platform" amongst other things.

 

I realized that I want a music player. So I will look elsewhere. 🙂

Yeah, what he says in the blog is likely to have no legal meaning at all, it should all be in the agrement not in a post on the web.
Im also one of those that want a streaming service and NOT a social platform, i have actively opted out of such services like Facebook etc, i do post on forums like this under a moniker though.
Why dont you (Spotify) give us an option to switch on this social function if we are interested and if we are not like in my case leave it swithed off ?  
Ive been a paying customer since 5 years now and was using Spotify even long before that, im also a musician/composer myself and have a couple of albums on spotify. 

 

I just cancelled my premium subscription because of the new privacy policy. Why is Spotify killing their business like this? I don't want them getting access to my contacts! Hell! I use my phone for work too and have hundreds of work contacts on here.

You do know that a note from the CEO isn't the same as Ts&Cs right?
