2. What Type of Information We Collect.
There are many places at our site where you can share your personal information with us, and where you can communicate with others.
Registration. Our site gives you the opportunity to register with us, and sometimes registration is required before certain site features can be used. Our registration forms may request your contact information (such as your name, email address, mailing address, etc.), demographic information (such as your country, gender, etc.), and profile data (such as your music preferences, etc). You may be assigned a site username and/or password. For our internal purposes, we use this information to communicate with you and provide the services you have requested, and to provide a more personalized experience on our sites. For example, your registration may allow you to use and post to site message boards, create site profiles, etc. We use aggregate demographic and profile information about our fans in order to improve our service, for research purposes, and/or marketing/promotional purposes, among others. By visiting our site, you affirmatively consent to our collection and use of your data.
Newsletters and Other Communications from Us. When there is a separate sign-up for newsletters, we ask for contact information such as name and email address, and, sometimes, demographic and profile information. By visiting our site, you affirmatively consent to our collection and use of your data. We use this information in the same manner as we use the contact information in the Registration process described above. Recipients of our mailings can unsubscribe by following instructions that may appear at the end of email communications.
Communications. We have features where you can submit information to us (such as when contacting us with a question or feedback). We may retain your emails and other information you submit to us for our internal purposes, and to help us to serve you better. We may offer features where you can send information to others, such as e-cards or “Tell A Friend” features. We will use the contact information you enter for your friends to send the email or e-card.
Interactive and Community Features. Our site may offer interactive and community features, such as message boards, chat, email accounts, etc. If you participate in any group forums, interface with other registered users of the Site, or use other interactive tools such as message boards or chat rooms as may be available on the Site from time to time, you should be careful not to disclose your personal information or the personal information of any other individual. In general, such forums may be viewed by others who visit the Site. By accessing these features and disclosing personal information, you affirmatively consent to the distribution of your personal information as described above. Users’ posts may be publicly and/or internally associated with their profiles/screen-names. Users are solely responsible for the content of messages they post or send on public forums.
Automatic Data Collection. The server on which the Site is located collects and saves the default information customarily logged by web server software. Such information may include the date and time of your visit, the originating IP address, operating system information, and the pages and images requested. We also collect certain specific information, including but not limited to, IP address, operating system and browser information, when a user signs-up for a mailing list or resource sign-up, and when a user purchases a product or signs up for a service. The Site uses “cookies” – small data files, typically made up of a string of text and numbers, which assign you a unique identifier. You may set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or to prevent cookies from being sent. However, such action may limit the functionality we can provide you when you visit the Site. In addition, we may collect aggregate information about the use of the Site, such as which pages are most frequently visited, how many visitors we receive daily, and how long visitors stay on each page.
Links. We may provide links to non-Company sites, including for example being directed to e-commerce sites to make purchases of artist’s products. We are not responsible for those other sites, their privacy policies or how they treat information about their users, and we advise you to check their privacy policies.
3. Use and Disclosure of Information We Collect
Information provided at the Site may be shared with Artist, including management, representatives, and any new label they may join. Other than as set forth herein, we do not share or sell your email address or other identifying information to third parties. We may, however, share your information with our affiliated companies, and other companies or selected third parties to achieve the purposes identified in this policy, in our other communications with you, or on the Site. We may provide to others the aggregate statistics about user requests, interests, or related site activity for purposes of marketing or promotion. Additionally, we may disclose information about you to others in order to protect the rights and safety of us, our shareholders, members, officers, employees and users, and if we have a good faith belief that we are required to do so by law or legal process or to respond to claims (such as to legal representatives and law enforcement); and as otherwise required by law. We may transfer your information in the event of the sale of substantially all of the assets of our business to a third-party or in the event of a merger, consolidation or acquisition. However, in such event, any acquirer will be subject to the provisions of our commitments to you, except as otherwise modified and posted on the Site on a going forward basis.
4. “Opt-In” For Special Notices; Accessing or Changing Information
We may periodically make special offers or communications to you. If you would like to receive such offers or communications, you may “Opt-In” at any time by checking the “Subscribe” box that appears on the e-mail notices page of the Site, and providing the e-mail address you wish to use to receive such notices. If you change your mind at any time, you can reverse your option, or change your e-mail address, using the same page. Selecting the “Opt-In” or “Subscribe” option constitutes acceptance of Company’s use of your e-mail address to send you notices pertaining to Company, artist, the websites, and related topics. We maintain client/customer information, including request history and site usage data, for a length of time appropriate to our business needs.
