We're people just like you. We care about our privacy, we hate pop-up and pop-under ads, we despise spam, we dislike obligatory registrations, and we really don't like insecure websites. We spent a lot of time making sure our site was secure, and as private as you'd like it to be. We have, and will continue to reject distasteful, or otherwise "sketchy" ads. We'll never spam, or distribute your email address to anyone. And more importantly, we've built the site so you can use most of the functionality without an account.
If you have any questions or concerns about the privacy of this site, please contact us. We're willing to go well out of our way to make sure you have a safe, enjoyable experience on our site.
Quick Overview of this Policy
1. You must be at least 13 years old to use this site. If you are under 17, you should ask permission from your parent or guardian.
2. For instances where you need an account (e.g. playlist creation), your email address is the only personally identifiable information we require.
3. We will NOT release, display, sell, or otherwise distribute your email address. We will not display information regarding your third-party authentications (e.g. Twitter, Facebook usernames). However, if you use your email address as your username or in the title of your playlist, it may be visible on the website. Please do not use your email address or your real name as your username.
4. We do not allow visitors to view your profile unless they are logged in to our site. In that case, they can see any information you provided on your profile (e.g. answers to profile questions, etc). Your username may be visible to visitors who are not logged in to the site.
7. We might serve advertisements from third parties. We have and will continue to reject advertisers who interfere with this Policy.
8. We keep your data secure. Especially your password.
Children under the age of 13 are not eligible to use our Properties and must not attempt to register with the Properties and/or submit any personal information. We do not knowingly collect personal information from any person who is under the age of 13 or allow them to register. If it comes to our attention that we have collected personal data from a person under the age of 13, we will remove this information as quickly as possible. If you have reason to believe that this has occurred, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will delete all relevant information.
Persons between the ages of 13 and 17 should not send any information about themselves to anyone over the Internet without asking for parental/legal guardian permission beforehand.
2. Revisions to the Policy
While we will attempt to notify you of updates, this Policy may be amended without notice to you. It is your responsibility to read the Policy carefully and review any changes that may have been made.
3. Personal Information
For purposes of this Policy, the terms "personal information" and "personally identifiable information" shall mean all information provided during your initial registration on the Properties and during your creation of a user profile, including, but not limited to, your real name, email address, postal address and other location information, your age, your gender and certain other demographic information or information that may enable online or offline contact with you.
While we make a concerted effort to provide access to as many features of the Properties as possible without requiring personal information, some features (such as playlist creation) require user registration. When registering you will be asked to provide an email address and create a username and password. You may also choose to create a more detailed profile of yourself on the Properties by submitting additional personal information. Your username and additional personal information will be publicly visible to Users of the Properties. We will never publish or display your email address, unless it is used as your username. Please note that if you choose a username that includes or reveals your real name, email address, or any other personal information, such information may be available to other Users of the Properties and to the general public.
If you choose to purchase music or other goods or services by clicking on a third party link provided on the Website (e.g. a link to iTunes or Amazon.com), such third party may collect your personal details for the purpose of completing a transaction (e.g. credit card number). We may be provided with confirmation of your transactions with such third parties and, in some instances, such confirmation may include your personal information. Aside from such confirmations, the only information that we will collect with respect to such third party links is: (a) the number of Users who utilized such links; and (b) the number of purchases made by these Users.
4. Statistical, Browser, and Location-based Information
As a service, we may collect certain aggregate statistical information in order to understand the likes and dislikes of Users of the Properties. This information does not include any personally identifiable information.
5. Use of Personal Information
We will not sell or distribute your email address or any other personal information to any third parties.
We may use the email address that you provided when you registered to contact you from time to time. This may be for security reasons (e.g. to reset your password), to ask your opinion about the Properties, or it may be to inform you of previous or future modifications to the Properties. It will not be to promote a third party's product.
In addition, third party advertisers and services employed by the Properties may set cookies on your computer. While we make a concerted effort to screen third party advertisements and services, we can not control and can not be held responsible for any cookies set by those services.
We may use third-party advertising companies to target and serve ads when you visit our Properties. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements of interest to you. These companies may employ cookies and other technologies to measure advertising effectiveness.

We will not serve advertisements from less than reputable third-party advertising companies. We have, and will continue to reject any advertisement opportunities that do not conform with this Policy.
We protect your information with the latest standards in security and encryption. We employ strong, one-way encryption methods to store passwords, and require secure certificates and passwords to access our database and server terminals.
You should never disclose your account password to anyone. We use strong security measures to help keep your personal information safe, but we cannot guarantee that these measures will stop any users try to get around the privacy or security settings on the Properties through unforeseen and/or illegal activity, however small of a chance that may be. Consequently, you acknowledge that there are circumstances in which your personal information may be accessed by unauthorized persons.
