The App
We need

When you install Secret DJ, or while you're using it, we will ask for certain permissions so that you can make the most of the app. Below are the reasons we need these permissions and how we use them.


We use your device's location to work out which Secret DJ venues are nearby and how many songs you can request in each.

If you are using an Android device, the app requires the ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION & ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION permissions to enable this feature.

iOS devices will prompt for permission the first time you run Secret DJ. If you don't allow location access you can enable it later from within the Location section of your device's privacy settings.


We need to access your camera if you want to use it to take a profile picture for your Secret DJ account. Alternatively images can be selected from your photos / gallery or via Facebook.

To permit this, iOS devices require that you allow Secret DJ access to the camera and your photos.

If you're using an Android device, the app requires the CAMERA permission. In addition the app needs READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE & WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE permissions so that it can save your profile picture to your device's SD-card.


Secret DJ requires a WiFi or mobile data connection to operate. To allow this you need to grant the app permission to access these services. Please also ensure that either mobile data or Wifi is turned on when you're using the Secret DJ.

Android devices require the granting of the INTERNET and ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE permissions to use the internet. We also ask for the READ_PHONE_STATE so that we can mute any song previews if you make or take a call.

In-app purchases

Secret DJ lets you purchase additional song credits from within the app. On iOS devices, these in-app purchases are managed by PayPal and on Android by GooglePlay.

All in-app purchases are managed by the payment provider. Android devices also require the granting of the vending.BILLING permission to allow in-app purchases.


We maintain some details about your account on your device. These settings can be accessed by going to the Secret DJ section in your device's account settings.

Android devices require the AUTHENTICATE_ACCOUNTS and MANAGE_ACCOUNTS permissions to access these account settings.


The app allows you to sign up using your Facebook details and also to use your Facebook profile picture with your Secret DJ account.

We will only access your basic account details including your name, gender and email address. To allow Secret DJ to access this information you must authorise the app when prompted.


We transmit essential data relating to your Secret DJ account from your device to our servers where it is securely stored.

If you wish to terminate your account at any point, please contact us and we will delete your data from our servers.
