WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
You may browse portions of our Site and stream music without providing us with any personal information about yourself. However, in order to become a member of the Site (“Fan”), download music, purchase one of our product or service offerings, participate in one of our contests or surveys, or use other interactive features of the Site, you will need to provide us with your personal information, including without limitation your name, address, date of birth, email address and phone number, and your payment information, including your credit card number or payment account information. We may also collect demographic information that is not unique to you such as your ZIP code, musical preferences, gender, income level and interests. We may also collect information about the types, frequency and identity of music you stream and download, information you browse about bands listed on the Site and those of whom you become a fan, and your history of purchasing or using our products and/or services. Sometimes we collect or may collect a combination of these types of information.
USE/DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
The Company may use the information that you provide to fulfill your request for a download, a product, information, or other service, to process your entry into one of our contests or sweepstakes, or respond to an email or other request, as well as to create and deliver to you our newsletters or surveys, communications containing information about the Site, usage tips or promotions, help improve our website(s) or services, or customize visitors’ experience at our Site. The Company will also share your information with Fame Wizard Artists that you have indicated interest in, so that these Artists can communicate with you regarding their music, appearances, performances, etc. This means that even if you terminate your Fame Wizard account, these Artists may still contact you using your email address that was previously provided to them.
We want to communicate with you via email correspondence only if you want to hear from us. If for any reason you would no longer like to receive promotional or informational email messages from the Company or our Artists, you may remove yourself from our mailings by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of every email we send to you. Please allow up to 10 days for us to process your request. You may also opt out of receiving emails from particular Artists. Please note, if you opt not to receive marketing emails from the Company, you may still receive “Transactional” email messages regarding your downloads or other orders (i.e. order confirmation, shipping information, customer service notifications, etc.) If you have questions or concerns regarding this statement, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Company may also share your email and/or mailing address with carefully selected vendors, business partners and other organizations whose products or services we think may interest you, if you select this option when you sign up to become a Fan. Many of our users find this a valuable and time-saving service. However, if you do not want us to share your personal information with third party organizations, you do not have to select this option when you sign up to become a Fan. You can always change your preferences later by clicking the “My Account” link on the Site.
We may also contract with companies or individuals to provide certain services including email and hosting services, credit card processing, shipping, data management, surveys and marketing, promotional services, etc. We call them our Service Providers. We may share personally identifiable information with Service Providers solely as appropriate for them to perform their functions, but they may not use such information for any other purpose. We do not share your credit card or other account information with unaffiliated third parties unless you authorize us to do so, or if it is necessary to fulfill our responsibilities including, but not limited to, delivering a product or service that you order.
Finally, the Company may disclose personal information in special cases: (1) when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) the rights of the Company or to anyone that could be harmed by such activities; (2) when we believe in good faith that the law requires it; (3) to any third party who may acquire the Company; and (4) in situations involving threats to the physical safety of any person.

The Company may also collect, store or accumulate certain non-personally identifiable information concerning your use of our Site, such as information regarding which of our pages or which Artist’s songs are most popular, your IP address, browser, city, time zone, and operating system. This information is not linked to your personal information. Information gathered may be used in aggregate form for internal business purposes, such as generating statistics, developing marketing plans, customizing content, and improving the Website. We may share or transfer such aggregate, non-personally identifiable information with or to our affiliates, licensees and partners.
