Your Email is NEVER shared. Musicity.com just as you do, cares about how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly. This section describes our privacy policy. By visiting Musicity.com, we hope that you will understand that protecting your privacy is paramount to good business e-commerce retailing.

What information about me can Musicity.com obtain from my visit?

We need to collect certain information about you in order to complete a legal and binding business transaction.

Information You Give Us

Throughout the web you provide information when you search, buy, post, participate in a contest or questionnaire, or communicate through email with customer service. For example, whenever you search for a product; buy a product, create a wishlist, or submit information via website forms; communicate with us by phone, e-mail, or otherwise; or if you complete a questionnaire or a contest entry form; participate in surveys, and so forth you are creating a path of information that may be captured by a computer database. As a result of those actions, you might supply us with such information we need such as your name, address, and phone number; credit card information; the names of people to whom purchases have been shipped, including their addresses and phone numbers; the names of people (with addresses and phone numbers) listed in stored settings; the content of reviews and e-mails to us. We must save most information you enter on our website or give us in any other way (such as by phone). We use that information to complete the business transaction or to serve you better as a valued customer.

Automatic Information

We save certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, and you have probably heard of this, like many Websites, we use "cookies" (explained below) and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser (Google, Yahoo, Firefox, for example) refers a search item to us. We also use “Action Tags” (explained below) and other data-collection methods. Data collected and stored include your IP address, the last page you visited, and a session ID we store on your computer so we can preserve information about you (such as your shopping cart contents) as you travel from page to page. Other examples of automatic information we collect and analyze may include login; e-mail address; password; computer and connection information such as browser type and version, operating system, and platform; purchase history; the full Uniform Resource Locators (URL) clickstream to, through, and from our Website, including date and time; cookie number; products you viewed or searched for; category pages you visited; and the phone number used to call our 800 number. All of this is fairly standard on the web today for e-commce websites.

We may tie data collected automatically to information that you provide us with in order to customize and make more enjoyable your experience at Musicity.com.

E-mail Communications

We send periodic customized promotional email newsletters to you if you have agreed to receive them. Also, any time you receive a promotional email, you will receive instructions on how to prevent receipt of any further promotional emails. We solicit third party management in this area, who painstakingly supervises sending promotional emails to comply with Musicity.com's policy, their own policy and the current Federal and State privacy laws. Once you sign up for any promotional email communications, you will be sent a confirmation before any are sent to you. We will of course, respond to every email you send us inquiring about our products and services. 

Information from Other Sources

We might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information. For example, we may sometimes receive updated delivery and address information from our shippers or other sources so that we can correct our records and deliver your next purchase or communication more easily.

Data Retention Policy

Where required, we promptly delete some credit-card information. Aside from these exceptions, we do attempt to keep most substantive data forever.
