1.  What Types of Information Do We Collect From You?


We gather three basic types of information through the Site: "Personally Identifiable Information" (or "PII"), "Non-Personally Identifiable Information" (or "Non-PII") and "IP Addresses."


Personally Identifiable Information identifies a person as an individual.  You do not have to provide PII to use the Site, but we may ask that you do so when we are providing opportunities to you through the Site. The information we ask for will depend on what opportunity we are providing but may include your name, postal address, telephone number, e-mail address, and for purchases, your credit card number including any validation code.   We may also provide functionality so that you can send messages about Site-related content to a friend, for example music clips or artist information.  By using this functionality, you affirm that you are entitled to provide us with the recipient's name and e-mail address for this purpose.  


Non-Personally Identifiable Information does not personally identify you. It may include your  computer type, screen

resolution, OS version, Internet browser, cookies, pixel tags, web beacons, and other similar technologies to better serve you with more tailored information and facilitate your ongoing use of our Site.  It may also include demographic data, for example your location. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to decline the use of cookies.  To learn more about cookies, please visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org/.  


IP Addresses.  Your Internet Protocol (IP) address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider (ISP).  This number is logged automatically in our server log files whenever you visit the Site,

along with the time of your visit and the pages that you visited.  Collecting IP addresses is standard practice on the Internet and is done automatically by many websites.  


2.  How Do We Use The Information We Collect?


Personally Identifiable Information.  We may use PII:


  • to fulfill your requests such as to send newsletters to you or complete your purchases.

  • to send you important information about the Site, or changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information may be important to your use of the Site, you may not opt-out of receiving these communications.

  • to tell you about any artists, products, programs, services and promotions we believe may be of interest to you.

  • for internal business purposes, such as data analysis, audits, developing new products, improving our services, identifying usage trends and determining the effectiveness of promotional campaigns.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information.  This does not personally identify you. We may use this information and share it with our affiliates and other third parties for any purpose.  We may combine Non-PII with PII, such as combining your geographic location with your name, but if we do this the information will be treated by us as PII for so long as it is combined.  We may aggregate PII such that the end-product does not personally identify you or any other user of the Site, for example by using PII to calculate the percentage of our users who like a particular artist.  


IP Addresses.  We use IP addresses for the same purposes for which we use PII and in addition for calculating Site usage levels, helping diagnose server problems, and administering the Site and your use of it including providing opportunities to you and fulfilling your requests and purchases.  Except where otherwise required by law, we treat IP Addresses, server log files and related information as Non-PII.


Legal Requirements.  We may use PII, Non-PII and IP Addresses for any purpose required or permitted by the law of any country.

Promotions/Contests/Surveys.  This privacy policy does not address the specifics of any particular promotion, contest or survey.  If you elect to participate in a promotion, contest or survey, please be certain to check the specific rules/policies relating to the promotion or contest as those rules/policies may differ for each contest, promotion or survey.


Third Party Sites.  This privacy policy does not address, and we are not responsible for, the privacy, information or other practices of any third parties, including without limitation our affiliates and any third party operating any site to which this Site contains a link.  The inclusion of a link on the Site does not imply endorsement of the linked site by us, artist(s) or our affiliates.  


Third Party Advertisers.  We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our Site.  These

companies may use information (not including your name, address, e-mail address or telephone number) about your visit to this Site to provide advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to you.  In the course of serving advertisements to this Site, these companies may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser.  If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, please visit http://networkadvertising.org/optout_nonppii.asp.


Those who choose to access the Site do so on their own initiative and at their own risk, and are responsible for complying with all local laws, rules and regulations.  We may limit the Site's availability, in whole or in part, to any person, geographic area or jurisdiction we choose, at any time and in our sole discretion.  By using the Site and submitting any PII, you consent to the transfer of PII to other countries, such as the United States, which may provide a different level of data security than in your country of residence.
