By using the Site, you agree to this policy. We may change this policy. You can tell if we have by looking at the “LAST UPDATED” legend near the top of this page.
Because we operate the Site from the United States, this policy, and our collection, use and disclosure of your personal information, is governed by U.S. law, and not by the laws of any country, territory or jurisdiction other than that of the United States. We do not represent or warrant that the Site, or any part of it, is appropriate or available for use in any particular jurisdiction. By using the Site and submitting any personal information, visitors from outside of the United States acknowledge that the Site is subject to United States law and consent to the transfer of personal information to the United States, which may provide a different level of data security than in their country of residence, and waive any claims that may arise under their own national laws.
No Use of the Site by Children: You must be over 18 to use the site. Do not use the Site or provide personal information through the Site if you are under 18.
1. What Types of Information Is Collected From Me?
We gather two basic types of information through the Site: "personal information" and "other information." Personal information is information that identifies you as an individual; that is, your name, postal address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card number or other payment account number. Other information is aggregated information, demographic information, IP addresses and any other information that does not reveal your specific identity.
a. Personal Information. In order for you to take advantage of particular opportunities provided through the Site (for example, to sign up for a newsletter or to view certain areas of the Site), we may require that you furnish personal information. We collect personal information from you through the Site only when you voluntarily provide it to us.
2. How Do We Use Information?
a. Personal Information. We may use personal information about you in the following ways:
i. Fulfillment of Requests. We may use your personal information for the purpose you provided it (e.g., to send newsletters to you or identify your submissions).
ii. Administrative Communications. We may use personal information about you to send to you important information regarding 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 such communications.
iii. Other Communications. If you affirmatively opt-in to receive marketing messages from us we may use personal information about you to inform you of any artists, programs, services and events that we believe may be of interest to you. If you would prefer not to receive marketing-related e-mail messages, please refer to Section 3.f (“Opt-Out”) below.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you seek to make a purchase or donation through the Site, we may collect your credit card number or other payment account number (for example, your wireless account number), billing address and other information related to such purchase (collectively, “Payment Information”) from you, and may use such Payment Information in order to fulfill your purchase or donation (for example, to send you a receipt for tax purposes). If applicable, we may also provide such Payment Information, or other personal information provided by you, to third parties as necessary to complete your purchase (for example, to process your credit card or payment account number). To the extent that Payment Information includes other information, use of such other information is governed by Section 2.b below.
v. E-mails to Friends. We may provide functionality to permit you to send messages regarding Site-related content (such as submissions from the registry or artist information) to a friend through the Site. If you wish to use this feature, you may provide us with your friend’s e-mail address so that we can facilitate your sending of such message to your friend. To do so, any personal information you provide in connection with sending your friend such message, such as your name and your e-mail address, will, of course, be disclosed to your friend.
vi. Internal Business Purposes. We may also use personal information about you for our internal business purposes, such as data analysis, audits and so forth.
vii. Third-Party Service Providers. We work with third parties, who provide services including but not limited to hosting and other services of an administrative nature. We reserve the right to share personal information about you with such third parties for the purpose of enabling these third parties to provide such services.
viii. Assignment. We reserve the right to transfer any and all information that we collect from Site users to a third party in the event of any reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of our business or assets (including without limitation in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceedings).
b. Other Information. Because other information does not personally identify you, we may use such information for any purpose. In addition, we reserve the right to share such other information, which does not personally identify you, with third parties, for any purpose.
In some instances, we may combine other information with personal information (such as combining your name with your geographic location). If we do combine any other information with personal information, the combined information will be treated by us as personal information hereunder as long as it is so combined (see Section 2.a above).
3. Other Important Notices Regarding Our Privacy Practices.
a. Registries. We may provide functionality on the Site that allows you to create a profile page as part of our artist registry (your “Profile”) and post certain information and materials on your Profile. Please note that your Profile, including all personal information available in your Profile, may be accessible to other users. We urge you to exercise discretion and caution when deciding to disclose personal information about you, or any other information, in your Profile. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE USE BY OTHERS OF ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT YOU DISCLOSE IN YOUR PROFILE.
b. Information Posted on the Site. We may make available through the Site services (for example, message boards) to which you are able to post information and materials (including images, videos and other content).

In addition, when you choose to make a posting on such services, certain personal information (for example, a link to your Profile that contains personal information), may be available for other users to view. We urge you to exercise discretion and caution when deciding to disclose personal information about you, or any other information, on the Site. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE USE OR DISCLOSURE OF ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT YOU VOLUNTARILY DISCLOSE THROUGH THE SITE.

In the course of serving advertisements to this Site, these companies may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser.
e. Security. We use reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect personal information under our control.
