Privacy Policy describes our practices in connection with information that we or 

our third-party service providers collect through certain of our owned or controlled

applications (“Mobile Apps”) (collectively the “Properties”). By providing 

Personal Information (as defined below) to us through the Properties, you agree 

to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy does not address, and we are not responsible for, the 

privacy, information or other practices of any third party, including Facebook, 

Inc., Apple Inc., Google Inc., Microsoft Corp., Blackberry, any wireless carriers, 

our affiliates and any third party operating any site or property to which any 

Property contains a link.  In addition, the inclusion of a link on any Property does 

not imply endorsement of, or affiliation with, the linked site or Property by us or 

by our affiliates.  Please note that the Properties may include the ability to access 

and submit (including, for example, via a third-party software application or 

service that is available through or in connection with a Property) certain 

information directly to third parties such as Facebook or to any application 

platform such as Apple’s App Store or Google Play.  Such information is 

submitted by you directly to such third parties; this Privacy Policy does not apply 

to any information submitted by you to third parties.

How We May Collect Other Information

We and our third-party service providers may collect Other Information in a 

variety of ways, including:

 Through your browser or your device: Certain information is collected by most 

browsers, such as your Media Access Control (MAC) address, device type 

(Windows or Macintosh), screen resolution, operating system version, Internet 

browser type and version and the type and version of a Property that you are 

using. We and our service providers may also collect a unique device identifier 

assigned by us or our service providers to the device from which you are 

accessing a Property and other transactional information for the device that we 

and our service providers may use to serve content to the device. 

 Through your use of Mobile Apps:  When you download and use a Mobile 

App, we and our service providers may track and collect Mobile App usage data, 

such as the date and time the Mobile App on your device accesses our servers 

and what information and files have been downloaded to the Mobile App based 

on your device number.

 Through server log files: An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a number that is 

automatically assigned to your device from which you are accessing a Property 

by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), and is identified and logged automatically 

in our server log files whenever you visit the Property, along with the time of the 

visit and the activity on the Property.  We and our service providers use IP 

addresses for purposes such as calculating Property usage levels, helping 

diagnose server problems, administering the Properties and determining your 

approximate geographic location.

 Using cookies: We and our service providers may use cookies, pixel tags, web 

beacons, Adobe Flash technology (including Flash Local Stored Objects (“Flash 

LSOs”)) and other similar technologies to, among other things, better serve you 

with more tailored information for our products and services, and for those of 

third parties, facilitate your ongoing access to and use of the Properties, and 

collect and store information about your use of the Properties.  For example, 

pixel tags and web beacons may be used in connection with a Property to, 

among other things, track the actions of such Property’s users, measure the 

success of marketing campaigns and compile statistics about such Property’s 

usage and response rates.

o If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a 

simple procedure on most devices through which the Properties are accessed 

that allows you to decline the use of cookies.  To learn more about cookies, 

please visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org/.  If you choose to decline cookies, 

then some or all of the features, functionality and promotions available through 

the Properties may not be available to you.

o If your device stores Flash LSOs, and if you do not want Flash LSOs stored on 

your device through which you access the Properties, you can adjust the settings 

of your Flash player to block Flash LSO storage using the tools contained using 

the Website Storage Settings Panel. You can also control Flash LSOs by going 

to the Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions (which may 

include instructions that explain, for example, how to delete existing Flash LSOs 

(referred to as “information” on the Macromedia site), how to prevent Flash LSOs 

from being placed on your device without you being asked, and (for Flash Player 

8 and later) how to block Flash LSOs that are not being delivered by the operator 

of the page you are on at the time).  Please note that setting the Flash Player to 

restrict or limit acceptance of Flash LSOs may reduce or impede the functionality 

of some Flash applications, including, potentially, Flash applications used in 

connection with the Properties or our content. We expect our service providers 

and technology suppliers to honor any decision by you to restrict or limit Flash 

LSOs, but we cannot guarantee that they will do so.

o The use of these technologies allows our vendors and third parties and their 

vendors to deliver advertisements about our products and services, and the 

products and services of others, when you use the Properties or other 

applications or visit websites or web properties across the Internet.  These 

parties may place so-called “pixel tags,” “web beacons,” “clear GIFs” or similar 

technologies on the device through which you access the Properties, and other 

applications or websites across the Internet, and also place or recognize third-

party cookies when you use the Properties, or other applications, websites or 

web properties. These vendors may use information about your visits to the 

Properties, and other applications, websites or web properties (excluding your 

name, address, and telephone number) to provide advertisements for us and 

others about goods and services that may be of interest to you.  If you would like 

more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having 

this information used by these companies, please visit the Network Advertising 

Initiative at www.networkadvertising.org or the Digital Advertising Alliance 

at www.aboutads.info.

o Our Properties do not respond to browser-based do-not-track signals.

 Geographic location information: If you use any location-enabled products or 

services, you may be sending us location information.  When you use a location-

enabled service, we may collect and process information about your precise 

geographical location, such as GPS signals sent by a mobile device.  We and our 

third party service providers and partners may use your device’s physical location 

to provide you with personalized location-based services, content and 

advertisements. In some instances, you may be permitted to allow or deny such 

uses of your device’s location, but if you choose to deny such uses, we may not 

be able to provide you with the applicable personalized services and content.

 From you: We may collect demographic information, such as your zip code or 

gender, as well as other information, such as your preferred means of 

communication, when you voluntarily provide this information to us.  Unless 

combined with Personal Information, this information does not personally identify 

you or any other user of the Properties.

 Information about how you interact on the Properties:  We may collect 

information about how you interact on the Properties.  For example, some 

Properties may utilize analytic tools to help us better serve you through improved 

products, services, and revisions to the Properties. This collected information 

may let us know which services and features you are using the most within a 

Property, as well as device type and hardware features, country and language of 

 By aggregating information: We may aggregate Personal Information so that 

the end-product does not personally identify you or any other user of the 

Properties, for example, by using Personal Information to calculate the 

percentage of our users who like a particular artist.

How We May Use and Disclose Other Information

Please note that we may use and disclose Other Information for any purpose, 

except where we are required to do otherwise under applicable law.  If we are 

required to treat Other Information as Personal Information under applicable law, 

then we may use it as described in “How We May Collect Other Information” 

section above, as well as for all the purposes for which we use and disclose 

Personal Information.  In some instances, we may combine Other Information 

with Personal Information (such as combining your name with your geographical 

location).  If we combine any Other Information with Personal Information, the 

combined information will be treated by us as Personal Information as long as it 

SECURITY We seek to use reasonable physical, technical and administrative 

measures to protect Personal Information under our control.  Unfortunately, no 

data transmission over the Internet or data security system can be guaranteed to
