PRIVACY POLICY

What type of information do we collect and how do we do it?

We collect information from you when you fill out contact forms on our site or purchase a recording, mixing or mastering package.  When filling out a form on our website, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your: name and/or email address.  You may however, visit our site anonymously.

 

Your privacy is important to us. We will not share any personally identifiable information with anyone for any reason without your explicit permission.

 

We are obligated to keep your material confidential. Your songs will not be played for any other purpose except as needed to record tracks for your song and/or musical piece.

Exception to our privacy policy

We reserve the right to wave our privacy policy in the case of sexual harassment towards any staff or session musician of Bootleg Recording. We will treat these cases severely and report the material we've received, including all contact information to the police. We have a zero tolerance policy against such cases.

How We Use Your Information

When ordering, you will create a personal account. Through this account, you provide certain types of information such as physical address, telephone number, email address, credit card number and expiration date. Without this information, an order cannot be shipped and/or billed. An email may be sent to you, or a phone call made if there is any trouble processing your order.  This information is stored and viewed collectively. The data allows us to better understand your interests, and provide better service and more appropriate product offerings. We may at times share aggregated demographic information with carefully selected partners and advertisers. This data is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. We use various shipping companies to deliver your order, and a credit card processing company to bill you for those goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store nor use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes. This site may at times make chat rooms, forums, message boards, and/or news groups available. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information. Caution should be exercised when deciding to disclose personal information. We will not sell, share, nor rent this information to any third party marketer without your express knowledge and consent as outlined in this statement. 

How We Protect Your Information

At Bootleg Recording, one of our main goals is protecting your privacy and data.  We implement security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you submit or access your personal information.

 

However, we can neither ensure security of any information you decide to share with Bootleg Recording, nor guarantee that your information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by a breach of any of the industry standard physical, technical or managerial safeguards.

 

All supplied information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL), but bear in mind that there is no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage that is 100% secure, and because of that, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Our Use of Cookies and other tracking technologies

We and our third party service providers use cookies and other tracking mechanisms to track information about your use of our Site or Services. We may combine this information with other personal information we collect from you (and our third party service providers may do so on our behalf).

 

Currently, our systems do not recognize browser "do-not-track" requests. You may, however, disable certain tracking as discussed in this section (e.g., by disabling cookies).

 

Cookies. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your web browser for record-keeping purposes. Some cookies allow us to make it easier for you to navigate our Site and Services, while others are used to enable a faster log-in process or to allow us to track your activities at our Site and Service. There are two types of cookies: session and persistent cookies.

 

· Session Cookies. Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser or turn off your computer. We use session cookies to allow our systems to uniquely identify you during a session or while you are logged into the Site. This allows us to process your online transactions and requests and verify your identity, after you have logged in, as you move through our Site.

 

Persistent Cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you have closed your browser or turned off your computer. We use persistent cookies to track aggregate and statistical information about user activity.

 

Disabling Cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can edit your browser options to block them in the future. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your computer from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Visitors to our Site who disable cookies will be able to browse certain areas of the Site, but some features may not function.

Third Party Analytics. We use automated devices and applications, such as Google Analytics, to evaluate usage of our Site and, to the extent permitted, our Application. We also may use other analytic means to evaluate our Services. We use these tools to help us improve our Services, performance and user experiences. These entities may use cookies and other tracking technologies to perform their services. We do not share your personal information with these third parties.

Security

We take every precaution to protect your privacy. When you submit sensitive information via the website, the information is protected both online and offline. When sensitive information such as a credit card number is required, that information is transmitted with the most advanced encryption software in the industry - SSL. All personal information is protected offline as well in our restricted offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, a billing specialist or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers on which information is stored are kept in a secure and closely monitored environment.

 

You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your password, phone, and computer by, among other things, signing off after using a shared computer, choosing a robust password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, and keeping your log-in and password private. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.
