What Personally Identifiable Information Music Connection Collects and How it is Collected
When you book for a conference, buy a product and/or join one of Music Connection programs, we need to collect certain information about you in order to provide and improve our services.

Telephone numbers at which we can contact you;
Your date of birth;
Method of payments (credit card and expiration date);
We may also need certain information from you when you request any of the following services or equipment:

How we collect this information will depend on how you use our services. We may collect this information directly from you by telephone, fax, e-mail, at the counter, upon completion of an application or enrollment form, or through your use of our Site or the Internet.
To the extent you use our Site, we may also collect information about your use of our Site, transactional and account information, e-mail and other information related to communications to our Site.
How Personally Identifiable Information is Used and Disclosed by Music Connection
We strive to provide you with a stress-free experience and are dedicated to building a rewarding and lasting relationship with all our members
In order to provide you with the optimum level of service, we may use your PII for the following purposes:
To provide the services and offerings that you request, and to communicate with you regarding such services and offerings;
To do all things necessary to administer those services;
To research, develop, manage, protect and improve our Site and services;
To maintain and develop our service-oriented software and other business systems; and
To analyze data, or to have a third party do so on our behalf.
We also use your PII information, or some discrete part, such as your e-mail address for other purposes. For example, such information may be used to process and track your transactions, or send you information about us and our affiliates and business partners products and services, and other information and materials that may be of interest to you. If you use our Site, information may also be used to evaluate what portions of our Site are visited more often than others, determine where visitors came from, where they go, and how long they stay on a particular page, or on our Site in general.
We may match information collected from you through different means or at different times. For example, we may use information collected online and offline along with information obtained from other sources, including third parties.
How We Protect the Security of Personally Identifiable Information
The security of your PII is an important concern to us. We exercise reasonable care in implementing generally accepted standards of technology security in order to protect information collected via our Site. We aim to prevent loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction, such as firewalls and Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption for some of your more sensitive PII.
Unfortunately, perfect security does not exist on the Internet, and no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, we cannot guarantee that any information stored on our servers, or transmitted to, or from, a user will be free from unauthorised access. For example, unencrypted e-mail is not a secure means of communicating with us, since e-mail may be intercepted by a third party in the course of its delivery. By using our Site and corresponding with us, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks.
In the unlikely event that we believe that the security of your PII in our possession or control may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development. If a notification is appropriate, we would endeavor to do so as promptly as possible under the circumstances, and to the extent we have your e-mail address, we may notify you by e-mail.
How to Correct or Update Personally Identifiable Information that Music Connection Maintains or Opt Out of Receiving Marketing Materials from Music Connection
You can opt-out of our use and disclosure of your PII for marketing purposes and customer satisfaction surveys, and/or withdraw your prior consent for some by unsubscribing. If you do so, your consent will be withdrawn, however, it is possible that you may receive correspondence scheduled prior to our receipt and processing of your opt out request.
To Opt Out of E-mail Campaigns: You may reply to a promotional or marketing e-mail that you have received from us with the word Unsubscribe in the subject line.
Your option not to receive promotional and marketing material:
Shall not preclude us from corresponding with you, by e-mail or otherwise, regarding your relationship with us (e.g. your account status and activity, our responses to questions or inquiries you pose to us, or confirmations for existing purchases);
Shall not preclude us, including our employees, contractors, agents and other representatives, from accessing and viewing your PII for our internal business purposes; and
Shall not preclude us from disclosing your PII as described in this Customer Data Policy for purposes other than sending you promotional and marketing materials.
