COMMITMENT TO YOUR PRIVACY
This site is owned and operated by GreatGuitarsAndDrums.com. Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us.
At GreatGuitarsAndDrums.com, we want to make sure that your online shopping experience is satisfying and safe.
Because we gather certain types of information about our customers, 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.
Definition of the Information GreatGuitarsAndDrums.com gathers and keeps track of.
GreatGuitarsAndDrums.com gathers two types of information about our customers:
- ● Information that customers provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to receive our electronic newsletters, to email a friend, and from registering as a member of this website.
- ● Information GreatGuitarsAndDrums.com gathers through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our sites. This information allows us to better tailor our content to customers' needs and to help us better understand the demographics of our customers. Under no circumstances does GreatGuitarsAndDrums.com divulge any information about an individual customer to a 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.
GreatGuitarsAndDrums.com tracks customer traffic patterns throughout all of our website. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual customers. GreatGuitarsAndDrums.com does break down overall usage statistics according to a customer's domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every customer's browser).
GreatGuitarsAndDrums.com sometimes tracks and catalogs the search terms that customers enter in our Search function, but this tracking is never associated with individual customers. We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites customers like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. This helps us continue to build a better online shopping experience for you.
USE OF INFORMATION
GreatGuitarsAndDrums.com uses any information voluntarily given by our customers to enhance their experience on our website, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the sites or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our customers.
As stated above, we use information that customers voluntarily provide in order to send out electronic newsletters. We send out newsletters to subscribers on a regular schedule (depending on the newsletter), and occasionally send out special editions when we think subscribers might be particularly interested in something we are doing or a new product we may have. GreatGuitarsAndDrums.com never shares newsletter mailing lists with any third parties, including advertisers, sponsors or partners.
When we use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites customers like and don't like based on traffic to those areas, this helps us continue to build a better service for you. We track search terms entered in Search function as one of many measures of what interests our customers. But we don't track which terms a particular customer enters.
GreatGuitarsAndDrums.com creates aggregate reports on customer demographics and traffic patterns for our own personal marketing needs. This allows us to advertise more effectively, and allows our customers to receive advertisements that are pertinent to their needs. Because we don't track the usage patterns of individual customers, an advertiser or sponsor will never know that a specific customer clicked their ad. We will not disclose any information about any individual customer except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our customers or the public.
SHARING OF THE INFORMATION
GreatGuitarsAndDrums.com uses the above-described information to tailor our content to suit your needs and help us better understand our customers' demographics. We will not share information about individual customers with any third party, except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process or to protect the personal safety of our customers or the public.
GreatGuitarsAndDrums.com operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and 256bit encrypted 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.
We give customers 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 customers.
