Details

This Privacy Policy does not apply for Third Party Websites

Some Sponsored Content made available through the Site is maintained on the website of the Content Sponsor, and not on the Site. This means that when you are on the Site and click through to that Sponsored Content, you may be leaving the Site and, in some cases, will be redirected to the site of the Content Sponsor and subject to the policies of that Content Sponsor.

The Site may also feature ads from third parties. When you click on an ad you will be leaving the Site and will be redirected to the Advertiser's site and subject to the policies of that Advertiser. It should be clear to you when either of these site transfers occur as the "look and feel" of your web page will change, and the URL will no longer refer to the URL of the Site. This Privacy Policy does not govern the use of, or disclosure of any information you choose to disclose to the Advertiser or Content Sponsor, or to the Advertisers' or Content Sponsors' sites.

The Information we collect

We only collect Personally Identifiable Information about you from our Site if you choose to provide it to us. This means you can visit our Site without revealing any Personally Identifiable Information. Like most web sites, our web servers do collect information about your visit, but not about you personally. This information may include the URL, IP address, browser type and language, and the date and time of your visit.

User Information

In order to use certain features of the Services you are asked to register as a User. The Personally Identifiable Information which is required by the registration process are subject to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy document and the Terms of Service you must accept to register as a User. Once the Terms of Service are accepted you may provide additional information in various areas of the Site and you may select to make information available to the public and to other Users. Providing additional information beyond the fields in the registration process is entirely optional, and making such information visible to the public and to other Users is under your control.

User generated Content and Interactions

The Services enable user generated content in the form of public profiles and interactions. To access the Services you must complete the registration process and accept the Terms of Service. Users author and publish a public profile that can be viewed by visitors to the Site. Further, the Services provide for User interactions. In these cases, each User is granted full control of the selection and extent of exposure of Personally Identifiable Information.

Credit Card Information

When you pay for Content or Services with a credit card you are required you disclose the credit card number, the billing address of the credit card, the name on the credit card, the expiry date on the credit card, a three digit security code, and any other information necessary to process payment. Credit card information is used only for payment processing and fraud prevention. Such information will be collected only through encrypted technology and may be stored in our secured database.

Third Party Personal Information

The Services include features for a User to email an invitation to a third party. We only use the email address of that person for the intended purpose. When that person accepts your invitation and registers to the Services the Privacy Policy applies.

Cookies, Web Beacons, and Internet Clickstream Data

Like most web sites, we may use cookies, web log files, IP addresses, or web beacons in order to recognize you as a registered user, improve overall experience of the Site and the Services, tailor and customize Content, or track usage. This data may be exchanged between the user's computer, our Site, and the systems of our infrastructure partners. The linkage between this data and your Personally Identifiable Information is never shared without your permission except when required by law.

When you access a Site, a small file called a "cookie" is placed on your hard drive. If you register as a User to have access to the Services, we may use cookies to authenticate your identity when you visit the Site, collect the data generated in connection with your clickstream activity ("Clickstream Data") and to personalize your user experience, including the option to serve and manage ads based on your activity on the Site.

In all cases, the Site uses cookies to track the Clickstream Data of Members and to obtain non-personally identifiable information, such as the number of visits to the Site that a certain User has made, the movement of the User through the Site, and the searches that the User conducts on the Site. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some Services may not be available to you if your cookies are disabled. We may use electronic images known as "clear GIFs" (sometimes called "transparent GIFs", "Web bugs", "pixel tags" or "beacons") that allow us to track general user traffic patterns. The Site also automatically receives and records information from our servers and from your browser, including your IP address, the time, and information about the page you requested.

Use and Disclosure of the information we collect

User Information

Content Sponsors who make Sponsored Content available on the Site may in return receive User Information of customers of their Sponsored Content, and in certain cases, custumers' Clickstream Data. Accordingly, if you purchase Sponsored Content, Company may disclose your User Information to the Content Sponsor. If you do not want this information disclosed to a Content Sponsor, do not purchase Sponsored Content.

Our Terms of Service agreements with Content Sponsors: (i) may provide that Content Sponsor can use this information to contact you via common methods of communication; but (ii) prohibit disclosure of the information to any third party other than agents of the Content Sponsor for the permitted marketing purposes set forth above. You should contact the Content Sponsor directly if you have any questions about their use of this information.

We may use Member Information to deliver alerts and email newsletters on topics of interest to Members who have requested those services. We may also send general promotional and marketing materials to our Members, including marketing research surveys.

We may use Member Information in aggregated form to understand our customer base and to market our services to our customers.

Except as set forth in this Privacy Policy, Musific will not disclose Member Information to any third parties, unless we are required to do so by law, regulation or court order.

Clickstream Data

The Site uses cookies to collect Clickstream Data on the Site. We use cookies to link Users and their activity to their User Information. Linking Users to their User Information allows our system to confirm a user's identity on the Site and to save and recognize User log-in information so that Users have efficient procedures accessing the Services and personalized access to Sponsored Content.

We use tracking technologies for a variety of purposes, including, but not limited to:

  • help us recognize your computer as a previous visitor, and save and remember any preferences that may
  • have been set while you were visiting our Site
  • track, accumulate and report information on our Site and Content usage to our partners and customers to measure the effectiveness of Sponsored Content on the Site
  • help us customize the content you access visiting our Site
  • determine which features Users like best in order to help us improve our Site and Services, personalize the user experience, and measure overall Site effectiveness
  • disclose Activity Intelligence information, as detailed below
  • disclose aggregated information, as detailed below
  • disclose transaction information, as detailed below
Activity Intelligence Information

Certain Content Sponsors may receive or be granted access to reports that include your User Information linked to Clickstream Data derived from your activity on the Site.

Aggregated Information

We may provide summary reports to our Content Sponsors, based on our analysis of Clickstream Data, which may include a description of your level of activity on our Site related to a Sponsor's Content, as well as activity related to editorial and vendor content. An example of the type of information included in a summary report is "3000 people looked into your net shop this week and 20% clicked through to view product details." This information is aggregated and does not disclose any User Information to the Content Sponsors. Company also discloses aggregated user statistics (for example, 75% of our registered artists receive booking requests within the first 6 months) in order to describe our services to prospective customers and partners and other third parties, and for other lawful purposes.

Transaction Information

We use this information to complete the transaction that you have requested, i.e. to deliver information, products or other services that you order and to invoice you. If you order paid Sponsored Content, we may disclose your User Information to the Content Sponsor. In addition, we may disclose your name, address and transaction information to agents such as couriers and fulfillment companies in order to effect the transaction and send you the Sponsored Content you have ordered, and we will provide your credit card details only to the relevant bank or credit card company in order to complete the transaction.

How you can opt out of Use and Disclosure of your User Information

We will only use your User Information for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy or as subsequently authorized by you in writing. You can avoid having your User Information and Clickstream Data disclosed to Content Sponsors by not purchasing their content. If you do not wish to participate in market research surveys, simply opt-out of any survey email you receive.

Following the registration process, we also allow Users the option to opt-out of receiving emails from Company. Users who opt-in may also remove themselves from emailing lists at any time by following the instructions at the end of any email they received from Company.

If you do not want to receive future communications from Company, please contact us at support@musific.com and we will deactivate your membership.

User Information provided to us by you is, however, subject to disclosure pursuant to applicable laws.

Opting in and out of email communications from Company and Third Parties

By providing your email address while signing up for an account or using any other part of the Services you automatically grant permission to Company and its strategic alliance partners to send email communications to you. During the sign up and use of any other part of the Service you may also indicate via a check-box whether you grant permission for Company to share your email address with additional third parties and for those third parties to send emails directly to you. You may manage your opt in preferences and opt out of receiving email communications by clicking "unsubscribe" from an email sent to you by Company or by signing in to your account online and managing your preferences.

Security and Data Storage

We employ procedural and technological security measures that are designed to safeguard your Personally Identifiable Information from loss, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. Company may use encryption, password protection, and other security measures to help prevent unauthorized access to your Personally Identifiable Information.

Access and updating of Information

The instructions to review, amend, or delete your information may be found in the user profile area of the Services. Users may change information at any time and as often as deemed necessary. Users who are experiencing problems with the Site and the Services or who have questions about how our Services work can contact us by sending an email to support@musific.com.
