COMMITMENT TO YOUR PRIVACY
This site is owned and operated by ANIMUSIC, LLC, the trademark holder of Animusic® and copyright holder of Animusic.com. Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. Our desire is for your online experience to be enjoyable as well as safe and secure.
Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.
INFORMATION ANIMUSIC.COM GATHERS AND TRACKS
Animusic.com gathers two types of information about users:
- Non-personal statistical data gathered through aggregated tracking, primarily derived by tallying web site page views. This information allows us to tune site performance, better tailor our content to visitor's needs and does not (nor can it) gather any personal information. Basically it's just counts and times.
- Information that users knowingly provide to us through optional, voluntary submissions. These include voluntary submissions to receive our electronic newsletters, the order placement process, and the optional customer account creation process. Animusic.com does not divulge any information about an individual user to a third party, with the exception of order shipping, where of course the US mail or FedEx will use the shipping address information to deliver packages.
Animusic.com gathers User Information in the following processes:
Optional Voluntary Information
We offer the following free services, which require some type of voluntary submission of personal information by users:
- 1. Electronic newsletters
We offer a free electronic newsletter to users. Animusic.com gathers the email addresses of users who voluntarily subscribe. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by following the link provided in every newsletter that points users to the subscription management page. Users can also subscribe to the newsletters at the time of registration.
- 2. Order Placement
We request all necessary information from our users in order to fulfill orders placed on Animusic.com. Required information includes name, physical addresses and payment information. Credit card information is processed by Cardservice International, and Animusic.com communicates this data over industry standard secure electronic means, so your purchase data is always encrypted and secure. We do not store credit card information once the order has been accepted. Additional helpful information is requested at the time of the order and is clearly marked as optional.
- 3. Surveys
Animusic.com may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target our content to our audience. These are always optional, and can be anonymous. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party.
Consistent with the Federal Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent.
Animusic.com tracks user traffic patterns throughout our site. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. Animusic.com does break down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser).
We use tracking information to determine which areas of our site users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.
USE OF INFORMATION
Animusic.com may use information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience on our site (during that visit, or for some future visit), whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the site or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users.
We will not disclose any information about any individual user except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
SHARING OF THE INFORMATION
We will not share information about individual users with any third party, except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
Animusic.com operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our customers. Also, our online store uses industry standard SSL security encryption to make sure information submitted to us cannot be intercepted by a third party. SSL security can be verified with your web browser - you'll see a padlock symbol in the lower right area that indicates there is a secure, encrypted connection between your web browser and our online store.
We give users options wherever necessary and practical. Such choices include:
- Opting not to register to receive our electronic newsletters.
- Opting not to participate in certain interactive areas, which completely alleviates the need to gather any personally identifiable information from our users
