We respect your privacy. At Muzlink we recognize that privacy is important. This document outlines the types of personal information we receive and collect when you use Muzlink services, as well as some of the steps we take to safeguard information. We hope this will help you make an informed decision about sharing personal information with us.
Please take a moment to read the following to learn more about our information practices, including what type of information is gathered, how the information is used and for what purposes, to whom we disclose the information, and how we safeguard your personal information. Your privacy is a priority at Muzlink.
Muzlink collection of personal information:
Muzlink collects a small amount of your personal information because it helps us deliver a superior level of customer service. It enables us to give you convenient access to music makers and music lovers around the world.
Information Muzlink collects:
Your use of the Muzlink website will generate general information, which will be collected by Muzlink without identifying you personally. Muzlink services such as the Muzlink Users Community and the Muzlink Artist Community will be accessed by your creation of a Muzlink ID based on your personal information.
This convenient service saves you time and allows for easier use of our web services. The system saves your information and you create a personal Muzlink ID - in many cases simply your email address, because it's unique and easy to remember. The next time you visit the Muzlink User or Artist Communities, all you need to do is enter your Muzlink ID and password; the system looks up the information it needs to assist you. In addition, if you update the information associated with your Muzlink ID it will be available for all your transactions with Muzlink sites globally.
Muzlink will not use this information collected to market directly to you unless you opt-in to future Muzlink communications such as email newsletters.
Your Muzlink information may also include certain technical information gathered or received when you use Muzlink sites. Some of the technical information that may be collected or received includes: the type of browser you are using (e.g Netscape, Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox), the type of operating system you are using (e.g Windows XP, or Mac OS), CPU type (e.g Pentium), your manner of connecting to the internet (e.g connection speed through narrowband or broadband access), internet protocol address, other information about your geographic location and the domain name of your Internet Service Provider.
'Personally Identifiable Information' is information that can be used to identiy or contact you, such as your name, phone number, email address, or mailing address. 'Aggregate Information' is information that does not identify you, and may include, for example, statistical information concerning the web pages on our site that users most frequent.
We have structured muzlink.com so that you may visit our site, and review a range of information about music makers and other materials relating to the music industry, without revealing your identity or providing any Personally Identifying Information.
