Privacy Policy

StephenMarleyMusic.com

Summary

We respect your privacy. Here are a few means by which we try to protect you:

  1. Only needed information is "required" on any forms. For example, to subscribe to the mail list, we really only need your email address. All else is "optional".
  2. Quick option to unsubscribe. At the bottom of all emails you permit us to send, there is a quick unsubscribe link.
  3. Your specific personal information will not be shared. As explained in more detail below, we may use it just as aggregated information about our visitors generally to trusted third parties, but never directly give anyone personal information or email address without your consent.

StephenMarleyMusic.com has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to our visitors' privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this Web site.

StephenMarleyMusic.com is operated by Stephen Marley. Privacy is a top priority. We are aware that we are responsible for personal information under our control.

Information We Collect

For each visitor to this web site our web server automatically recognizes only the consumer's domain name, but not the e-mail address (where possible).

We collect information volunteered by the consumer, such as survey information, site registrations, and/or orders placed with StephenMarleyMusic.com.

How We Use This Information

We only obtain the necessary amount of personal information necessary to provide a service or product.

The information we collect is used to:

  • notify users on updates about StephenMarleyMusic.com and/or the website
  • ship products to consumers and inform those consumers about their orders
  • improve the function of this website

We do not sell, rent, or lease our customer information to third parties. In order to help provide our services, we occasionally provide information in the aggregate to our business partners to help them make better decisions about the content they make available to our users. We use trusted, third party companies to assist us in fulfilling orders and processing credit card payments. These companies are only given the necessary amount of personal information needed to complete the task and payment information is destroyed upon completion of the order. Any such transfer of information will remain subject to the limitations of this privacy statement.

Consent

Personal information will only be collected, used or disclosed with a visitor's knowledge and consent, except where required or permitted by law. Consent can be expressed, and in some cases implied, verbally, in writing, by using or not using a check-off box or by your conduct, such as using certain services. It will never be a requirement to obtain a service or product except where necessary to be able to supply that product or service. Visitors may withdraw their consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions. If you would like to withdraw your consent please contact us.

Use of Cookies

To help us serve you better, we collect information that does not identify you personally, but rather identifies your computer or browser. This is done by using little files called "cookies" and by tracking IP addresses. A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a Website's computers and stored on your computer's hard drive. Cookies operate in the background, and you can turn them off if you wish, but doing so may impair your ability to use some of the features on the Website. We may use cookies to make the Website work better by, for example, keeping track of your login name, password and, if you want to buy things while on the Website, the "shopping cart." We may also allow other companies that are presenting advertisements or providing services on our pages to set and access cookies on your computer. Those companies' use of cookies will be covered by their own privacy policies, not ours. Specifically, we use a third-party advertising company to serve ads when you visit certain pages of the Website. This company may use aggregated information (not including your name, address, e-mail address or telephone number) about your visits to the Website in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about the information collection practices of this third-party advertising company, click here. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows the user to accept or reject cookies. If you set your browser not to accept cookies, you may not be able to take advantage of certain services on the Website. We may also use IP addresses to analyze trends, help us administer the Website, track the movement of visitors, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Third Party (External) Sites

Neither StephenMarleyMusic.com the site nor its partners are responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these external Web sites. We include them as references on our site for the benefit of visitors who'd like to read more topics related to the main featured page content. At the time of linking, we take care to peruse the source content, but due to the dynamic nature of the Web, it is impossible for us to stay on top of all external links we reference on our site.

Aggregated Demographic Information.

We may share aggregated demographic information with third parties, but this information is not linked to any personal information that can identify you or another individual person. Therefore, no personal information is disclosed in this manner.

Security

With respect to security we always use industry-standard encryption technologies such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol, when transferring and receiving consumer data exchanged with our site. We have appropriate security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you at our site.

Control of Your Information

StephenMarleyMusic.com offers our customers choices for the collection, use and sharing of personal information. For mailing lists if you do not wish to receive e-mail from us you can unsubscribe to the list by using the link at the bottom of every mailing.

Disclosure for Legal Purposes

The law requires that we may be required to share your personal information and non-personal information (see "Cookies" section above for examples of non-personal information) pursuant to judicial or governmental subpoenas, warrants or orders. If we are required to do so, we will, of course, obey the law. In addition, notwithstanding any term to the contrary in this Privacy Policy, we reserve the right to use and disclose share your personal and non-personal information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of this Website's Terms of Service, or as otherwise required by law.

Special Rules For Children

Because of federal law, we cannot collect any personal information from a child under the age of thirteen without the consent of that child's parent. The statements in this Privacy Policy generally about our collection and use of personal information also apply to our treatment of personal information from children under the age of thirteen, with the added protection of the special rules that follow.

Parental Consent

Some services on the Website require the submission of a credit card number along with personal information, and are therefore not available to children. Other services on the Website may not be available to children under the age of thirteen. For services that are available to children under the age of thirteen, if a child under the age of thirteen attempts to complete any registration form on the Website a screen will appear that says "Get Your Mom or Dad." We will then instruct the child to have a parent complete the registration form, either in person or by e-mail. We will provide the parent with a notice describing the Privacy Policy and will ask for the parent's consent to our collection and use of personal information from or about their child. The parent will also be asked to submit a credit card number (the card will not be charged) for verification purposes only. If the registration form is not completed with a credit card number to verify parental consent, the child will not be able to access those of our activities requiring registration and we will not collect any personal information from that child. Failure to complete the registration form will also prevent the child from entering chat rooms or otherwise making personal information available to the public on the Website. A parent has the option to consent to the collection and use of their child's personal information without consenting to the disclosure of that information to third parties, but if such disclosure is necessary to make available a service which has been requested, then the child will not have access to such service.

Information Collected

Depending on the special service requested, personal information collected may include a name, e-mail address, telephone number (e.g., home, mobile and/or fax), address or age of a child. We will not condition a child's participation in any activity on the Website on the child's disclosing more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in that activity. A parent can review his or her child's personal information by accessing the child's preferences. A parent can instruct us to delete the child's personal information or to stop collecting or using the child's personal information by contacting the Privacy Administrator.

Information Use

We may use the personal information to provide the child with the special services for which he or she has registered, as well as for fulfilling a requested transaction, record keeping, marketing back to the child or making it publicly available through a chat room. (Please note that when anyone, including a child, uses a message board or chat room on the Website, the communications are publicly available to the other participants.)

Information Disclosure

After obtaining the consent of the parent, we, and our service providers will maintain the confidentiality, security, and integrity of the personal information collected about their child. A child's information will only be disclosed to our third party service providers as described in this Privacy Policy. They cannot use your child's personal information without your consent for any purpose other than the service you have requested on behalf of your child.

Changes to this Policy

From time to time, we may use customer information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our privacy notice. If our information practices change at some time in the future we will post the policy changes to our Web site to notify you of these changes and provide you with the ability to opt out of these new uses. If you are concerned about how your information is used, you should check back at our Web site periodically.
