Your privacy is critically important to us.
At I Love Music Academy we have a few fundamental principles:
– We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
– We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
– We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the ongoing operation of one of our services.
– In our blogging products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.
Like most website operators, I Love Music Academy collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use our website/s. From time to time, I Love Music Academy may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
I Love Music Academy also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. I Love Music Academy only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Certain visitors to I Love Music Academy’s websites choose to interact with us in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at ilovemusic.in/Blog to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with I Love Music Academy – by purchasing access courses, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, I Love Music Academy collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with us. I Love Music Academy does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
We may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, I Love Music Academy may monitor the most popular blogs on the WordPress.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. I Love Music Academy may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, we do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
I Love Music Academy discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on I Love Music Academy’s behalf or to provide services available at I Love Music Academy’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using I Love Music Academy’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. I Love Music Academy will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, I Love Music Academy discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when I Love Music Academy believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of I Love Music Academy, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an I Love Music Academy website and have supplied your email address, I Love Music Academy may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with I Love Music Academy and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. I Love Music Academy takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If I Love Music Academy, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that I Love Music Academy goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of I Love Music Academy may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
