Types of Information Collected. We may give you the opportunity to register with us, and registration may be required before certain site features can be used. Our registration forms may request your contact information (such as your name, e-mail address, mailing address, etc.), demographic information (such as your age, gender, etc.), and profile data (such as your music preferences, entertainment practices, etc). You may be assigned a user name and/or password. For our internal purposes, we may use this information to communicate with you and provide the services you have requested, and to provide a more personalized experience on our website(s). For example, your registration may allow you to use and post messages, create site profiles, download or stream music, etc. We may use aggregate demographic and profile information about our users and customers in order to improve our service, for research purposes, marketing/promotional purposes and/or for industry reporting purposes, among others. By visiting our website(s), you affirmatively consent to our collection and use of your data.
Newsletters and Other Communications from Us. Our registered users and customers may receive newsletters, e-mail communications, or communications through other channels for, among other purposes, the promotion and marketing of a product or service from our music companies, and we may also offer other visitors to our sites the opportunity to sign up to receive such information. When there is a separate sign-up for newsletters, we will ask for contact information such as name and e-mail address, and, sometimes, demographic and profile information. By visiting our website(s), 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. We may offer our users the choice whether to receive mailings from others that we think will be of interest. Recipients of our mailings can unsubscribe by following instructions that may appear at the end of e-mail communications. In order to keep our registered users informed about the operation of our services, we may send e-mails and announcements that are needed for the proper functioning and administration of our website(s) and service.
Communications with Us and with Friends. We may employ features that enable you to submit information to us (such as when contacting us with a question or feedback). We may retain your e-mails 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 e-mail or e-cards.
Interactive and Community Features. Our website(s) may offer interactive and community features, such as message boards, chat rooms, short message service (SMS), instant messaging, profiles, etc. All information posted or sent by you through these features may be publicly available, and you should be aware that when you voluntarily post personal information (for example, user name, e-mail address, phone number) through these features, such information can be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited communications from other people. By accessing these features and posting 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.
Contests, Sweepstakes and Surveys. We may also have contests, sweepstakes and surveys at our website(s). When you enter or participate in them, we request contact information from you (such as your full name, e-mail address, mailing address, and telephone number) and may also request demographic or profile information. We will use the information you provide for the purpose of conducting the promotion (for example, to contact you if you have won). We may also use the information to send you newsletters and other information we think may be of interest. Recipients of our mailings can unsubscribe by following instructions that may appear at the end of the e-mail communication. Any personal information we collect may be associated with registration information. We may share aggregate information (but not personally identifiable information) with others. We may sometimes partner with sponsors in offering contests, sweepstakes or surveys, and may share information with them. By entering or participating in such contests, sweepstakes, and surveys, you affirmatively consent to our collection and use of your data.
We may also use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website(s). These companies may use information (but not your name, address, e-mail address or telephone number) about your visits to our sites and other websites on the Internet in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.
Sharing of Information. We may share your information with other third parties with whom we have business relationships.
