11. Notice Regarding EU General Data Protection Regulation

In 2018, the European Union (“EU”) implemented a regulation, known as the General Data Protection Regulation (“the Regulation”) which imposes certain obligations upon businesses (and others) that offer goods or services to individuals located within the EU. Businesses subject to the Regulation must handle the personal data of individuals in accordance with the Regulation’s various provisions. Given the global reach of the Internet, the Regulation provides that the mere accessibility of a website or email account in the EU is insufficient to find that the business envisions offering its goods or services to individuals in the EU. desertnoisesmusic.com is located entirely within the United States with no presence or activities within the EU. desertnoisesmusic.com does not envision or intend to offer goods or services to those located within the EU and expressly elects to limit its offering of goods and services to those not located within the EU and not within the scope of the Regulation.
