We do not collect personally identifiable information about you on this site without your knowledge, and all such information is collected directly from you.  For example, we may ask you to provide your email address, name, and mailing address in order to participate in contests, blogs, and/or to be added to the list to receive email updates on particular artists or types of music; to send so-called "postcards" or to conduct transactions elsewhere on the site.  You are not required to provide us with this information, but if you choose not to, you may not be able to participate in some of the activities on this site.

We use the information we collect from you to allow you to participate in the site activities for which the information is collected.  For example, when you provide your email address in order to receive updates on a particular artist or type of music, that address is added to the email list for that artist or type of music.  On each email you receive, you are given the opportunity to unsubscribe; once you unsubscribe, you will no longer receive such emails.

We may share the personal information we collect from you with our affiliates or send you email promotions and special offers from reputable third parties in whose products or services we think you may have an interest.  We may also share your information with reputable third parties who may contact you directly and/or supplement the information you provide with information received from third parties.  Such third parties may include representatives of our current or former recording artists.
