    Mods, the second item in the updated privacy policy just emailed out talks about Use License for downloaded materials. What is this referring to exactly? Are there going to be digital downloads with album purchases in the future?

    Downloads of the music we buy would be awesome. Just sayin.

    *Edit: Just realized there is a Q & A thread this should have gone in. Apologies. Is there a way to move/delete this thread?

    personally I have received VMP exclusives with download codes (Dream wife, Khruangbin, are the first names that come to mind) and essential or curated releases.
    Even the Side Sub Classic ROTM Davis/Coltrane contained a download card.

    On the other hand, in the few months I've been a member I haven't seen any download codes with the ROTM essential/Main.

    I don't believe that VMP proactively requests publishing companies for download cards, nonetheless if these are available, are regularly included.

    Not sure about the Download thing, but that has been the same, and was not really changed. The main updates were around international members, and other things that have to do with tax or something. Here is what Matt had told us about it:
    "We've added clarity and depth to our policies. The information and coverage hasn't changed to our Domestic users, but we did this to add more detail in the information we collect, use, and retain in reference to the GDPR regulations and standards. This update is focused on being more vocal and open to our International subscribers."
    So whatever all that means.... But I am not too sure haha

    Not a lawyer here, but my reading of the part about downloads had to do with 'downloading' the site itself, as in actually loading the webpage in your browser. I don't think it was about licensing for music downloads at all.

    @PaulyB I was trying to make sense of the International T's and C's regarding shipping. Could you clarify what it means regarding customs charges because it seems like it could mean VMP will no longer cover them.

    Does not mean that. I don't pretend to fully understand the T's and C's (that's @Heath s job), but I do know we will still be covering those :)
