RN is a music-oriented content and information website that provides a service to musical artists and to record companies on behalf of musical artists (each an "Artist" or "Musician" and collectively "Artists" or "Musicians") to post information regarding themselves as well as musical content owned and/or created by them. RN members can view each other's profiles ("Profiles"), communicate with each other, share photos, post journals and comments, and describe their interests. Registered Listeners can change their Profile information at any time and can control how other Listeners and the service communicates with them. Listeners and Artists are sometimes referred to hereinafter individually and collectively as "Users."
INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USED BY RN
RN collects User submitted personal information such as name, mailing address, email address, telephone number and age to authenticate Users, and to send notifications to those Users relating to, without limitation, the RN service, special events, contests and special offers.
As is standard practice on many corporate websites, RN also logs non-personally-identifiable information including IP address, profile information, aggregate user data, and browser type, from Listeners and other visitors to the site. This data is used to improve the website services, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users' movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. RN will not use the information collected to market directly to that person. This non-personally-identifiable information may be shared with third-parties to provide more relevant services and advertisements to Listeners. User IP addresses are recorded for security and monitoring purposes.
In addition RN uses pixel tags - tiny graphic images - to tell us what parts of our website have been visited or to measure the effectiveness of searches customers perform on our site. Pixel tags also enable us to send email messages in a format that customers can read. And they tell us whether emails have been opened to assure that we're only sending messages that are of interest to our customers. RN stores all of this information in a secure database.
Listener Profile information including Listeners' pictures and first names is displayed to people in order to facilitate user interaction in the RN social networking community. Listeners' full names are never directly revealed to other Listeners.
RN may also use a Listener's email address to send updates, a newsletter or news regarding the service. RN may send email messages which use a "click-through URL" linked to content on the RN website. When a customer clicks one of these URLs, they pass through our web server before arriving at the destination web page. RN tracks this click-through data to help determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked simply avoid clicking text or graphic links in the email.
From time to time, RN or a partner may sponsor a promotion, sweepstake or contest on RN. Listeners may be asked to provide personal information including name, email address or home address or to answer questions in order to participate. RN may transfer personal information to certain ad partners that you have explicitly requested to receive information from. It will be clear at the point of collection who is collecting the personal information and whose privacy statement will apply.
RN may also collect information for market research purposes to gain a better understanding of our customers and thus provide more valuable service. RN also collects information regarding customer activities on our website, and on related websites. This helps us to determine how best to provide useful information to customers and to understand which parts of our websites and Internet services are of most interest to them.
In cases where you use a mobile device to access our sites or use or applications, we may receive information about the location of your device. We may use this information to develop, deliver, and improve our products, services, and other offerings.
CHAT ROOMS, PROFILES, MESSAGE BOARDS AND PUBLIC FORUMS
Please be aware that whenever you voluntarily post public information to Chat Rooms, Profiles, Message Boards or any other Public Forum, that information can be accessed by the public and can in turn be used by those people to send you unsolicited communications. eMinor Inc. is not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit on RN. Please think before you post any personal information online.
USING SOCIAL FEATURES OF OUR APPLICATIONS
Our social features promote and facilitate interaction among our application users, such as by allowing our users to discuss a concert. In order to protect the application users’ privacy, we will only show you this information if they previously opted in to use the same social feature you are using.
The information you allow RN to access varies by application and SNS, and it is affected by the privacy settings you and your friends establish at the SNS. You can find out more about these settings at the SNS where you access our applications.
If you choose (opt in) to use one of our social features, you may be asked to log into a SNS, such as Facebook, through our application. The SNS may provide RN with the following information:
- Your SNS user ID.
- Your profile picture or its URL (if available).
- The user IDs and profile pictures of the people you are connected to on the SNS, such as your Facebook friends.
- Contact information (such as your name and email address).
- Demographic information (such as your gender and your date of birth).
- Your physical location and that of your access devices.
- Other information you provided to the SNS, such as occupation, interests, hobbies, music preferences, biographical information, and potentially any and all information that you agreed the SNS or other party could provide to us when you use our applications.
We link this data to a user ID that RN assigns to you. When a SNS sends us the user IDs and profile pictures of your friends, we check to see which of your friends also have chosen to use the same RN social feature you selected. If your friends have not chosen to use our social features, we do not retain their user IDs or other information about them. If your friends have opted in to use the same social feature you selected, then we link that information to you so that you can enjoy RN’s social features with those friends. We will update the list of friends linked to your user ID each time you log back into our social feature.
While using RN social feature, you may be able to see your friends’ profile pictures and their most recent use of the feature. Similarly, when your friends are using the feature, they may be able to see your profile picture and your most recent use of the feature. You may be able to invite your friends to join you in a social feature, such as by posting a message to your Facebook wall. You are never required to use RN’s social features in order to use our applications.
CORRECTING/UPDATING OR REMOVING INFORMATION
RN Listeners may modify or remove any of the personal information contained in their Profile at any time by logging into their account and accessing features such as Edit Profile and Account Info.
EMAIL CHOICE / OPT OUT
Listeners who no longer wish to receive updates or notifications may choose not to by opting-out. To opt-out, simply log-in to your Listener Account, click the "Edit Profile" link and select the "No" button next to "Receive PV Email Updates". All notification emails and RN newsletters also include the above instructions for opting-out of those communications in the future.
THIRD PARTY ADVERTISING
RN Listener and Artist accounts are secured by Listener-created and Artist-created (as applicable) passwords. RN takes precautions to insure that account information is kept private. RN uses reasonable measures such as encryption to protect private information that is stored within our database against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction, and we restrict access to such private information to those employees who need access to perform their job functions, such as our customer service personnel and technical staff. Please note that RN cannot guarantee the security of Listener or Artist account information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of member information at any time. Users are urged to also take precautions to protect their personal data by changing passwords often using a combination of letters and numbers, and using a secure web browser. For any additional information about the security measures RN uses on our website, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SHARING AND DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION REVERBNATION COLLECTS
We may also share information about you with your SNS contacts when you and they use the same social features of our applications.
