Personal Identifiable Information
We collect personally identifiable information (“PII”), such as your name, zip code and email address when you voluntarily choose to register for use of the Service and when you contact us with comments or inquiries. If you purchase music through the Service, or in order to qualify for Rewards, we will also collect PII about the songs you purchase, the price you pay, and the date and time of purchase. Also, if you make Referrals through the Service, we will collect PII about the songs you refer, the email addresses you refer them to, and the amount and source of Rewards that you earn. If you receive Rewards, we may also collect your address and if necessary, tax identification information.
We never request or store your credit card or bank information.
Passively Collected Information
When you interact with the Service, we receive and store certain additional personally non-identifiable information. Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. Examples include IP addresses, browser types, referring sites, date & time of access, and other anonymous statistical data involving your use of the Service.
In operating the Service, we may use a technology called "cookies”. A cookie is a piece of information that the Service gives to your computer when you access the Service. Our cookies help provide additional functionality to the Service and help us analyze Service usage more accurately.
On most web browsers, you will find a "help" section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section for information on how to receive notification when you are receiving a new cookie and how to turn cookies off. Acceptance of cookies is not a requirement to use the Service; however, certain features of the Service require your acceptance of cookies to work properly.
Use of Personally Identifiable Information
We use your PII for the following general purposes:
- to customize the web pages that you see;
- to determine your eligibility for Rewards;
- to inform Members who have made Referrals to you regarding whether or not they have earned a Reward;
- to inform Members if you are a top earner of Rewards;
- to fulfill your requests, such as a request to receive Rewards that you have earned;
- to better understand user behavior and to improve our Service; and
- to contact you about your membership or with marketing messages we believe may be of interest to you
Use of Personally Non-Identifiable Information
We may use personally non-identifiable information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the number of fans of a particular artist or song in a given zip code, the total number of users of the Service, the number of users of each page of the Service, and the domain names of our visitors' Internet service providers. No PII is available or used in this process.
Sharing Personally Identifiable Information
We are not in the business of selling PII. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share PII with certain third parties without additional notice to you, including those set forth below:
Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties
We, like many businesses, sometimes hire other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples include mailing information, maintaining databases, hosting services, and processing payments. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function. We require such third parties to maintain the confidentiality of such information and use such information only as necessary to provide us with designated services.
We may disclose PII if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) comply with a legal obligation, (b) protect and defend our rights or property, (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Service or the public, or (d) protect against legal liability.
You can always choose not to provide PII to us. However, doing so will prevent you from using the Service or becoming a Member.
Links to Other Websites
We take steps designed to protect PII and to guard such information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, no Internet or e-mail transmission is ever fully secure or error free. Please keep this in mind when deciding whether to disclose any PII to us or to any other party via the Internet.
Other Terms and Conditions
