The Information We Collect and How We Collect It
As described in this section, the MBC collects information from you in order to provide you with a personalized experience while visiting our website, which we hope will make your visits more productive and enjoyable for you. There are two types of information that we collect: personally-identifiable information and information that is not personally-identifiable.
We collect your personally-identifiable information only through the registration process. Our registration form requests information from you regarding your name, address (both ship to and billing), e mail address, and optional telephone number. To process your order, we also require your credit card number with expiration date, and cvs code from the charge card.
The MBC also collects certain information that is not personally- identifiable. One method of collection is the recording of information regarding the number of visits to the various pages of our website. The collection of this information helps us to determine the areas of our website that are most attractive to our visitors, so that we can make improvements or add new features based on our visitors' interests.
Like most websites, the MBC's servers may automatically track certain information about your activity on our website. This information, which allows us to keep our website running efficiently, may include the browser you are using, your operating system, and your IP address.
The MBC is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer servers with limited access that is located in a controlled facility. Additionally, when we transmit sensitive personal information (such as credit card number) over the Internet, we protect it through encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. We use Microsoft bCentral as our secure application for e mail database management. Both Bigstep and Microsoft bCentral use SSL. Despite these efforts, we cannot guarantee the security of your information given the current state of the Internet.
How We Use the Information We Collect
The information that we collect about you will be maintained in a file that we may need to review in a variety of other circumstances, such as enforcing the terms of our User Agreement. We will store information in files which will allow us to advise you via e mail of new products, upcoming sales, and share our newsletter. If a credit or charge back is due, we would use your information in processing that transaction type as well.
To Whom We May Disclose Your Information
Our policy is to refrain from selling, leasing, or otherwise transferring your personally identifiable information, however, there are certain exceptions. We describe below some of the situations in which such information may be disclosed.
Our e-commerce providers Buy Music Here and Bigstep, as well as our payment gateway, Yourpay, will have access to your personally- identifiable information in order to complete transactions you enter into in our online store. In addition, for legal reasons, we also may have to disclose your information. You hereby authorize us to disclose information to law enforcement or government agencies, if we believe the disclosure is necessary or appropriate, in the event of an investigation of improper or illegal conduct in connection with our website, such as fraud, misrepresentation, intellectual-property infringement, or other activity that may put us at risk for liability.
