isongU knows that you care about how your personal information is used and shared, and we protect your privacy. In fact, isongU is based on anonymity (the bare bones music), so (unless your song makes it to Mass Exposure) we have no inherent interest in your metadata.
isongU does not allow links to other websites nor does it allow advertisments to appear on its website.
That said; we do need an email which becomes your user ID. These email addresses are stored in a double firewalled, encrypted database. Our website is also a https:// website with Extended Validation SSL security. Also, under no circumstances will we share these email addresses with third parties. The same is true of emails sent and received; we will not share details of these emails with third parties.
Within the isongU website, user profile information including users’ name, email address, purchase history and other information you enter (“User Submissions”) may be displayed to other users to facilitate user interaction.
Within the isongU website, email addresses are used to add new User Submissions to user profiles and to communicate through User Submissions. Users’ email addresses will not be directly revealed to other users by Company, except, when the user is “connected” to another user via a shared group membership, or an invitation, or if the user has chosen to include their email address in their User Profile.
Communication in response to User Submissions: As part of the Website and Services, you will receive from Company email and other communication relating to your User Submissions. You acknowledge and agree that by posting such User Submissions, Company may send you email and other communication that it determines in its sole discretion relate to your User Submissions.
Dividends and purchases:
Even more important, to pay out dividends to reviewers and artists and to accept payments for songs we may need banking, credit card and PayPal information: As with the emails, this is also protected behind a double firewalled, encrypted database. And it is again protected by secure merchant protocols: Extended Validation SSL (only Extended Validation SSL comes with the green bar).
Under no circumstances will we ever share banking or credit card or PayPal details with third parties.
Automatic collection of data:
isongU also automatically collects information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, cookie information, and the page you requested. We will not share this information with third parties.
isongU also automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our site and its components, similar to TV ratings that indicate how many people watched a particular show. isongU only uses this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often customers use parts of the Website or services so that we can make the Website appealing to as many customers as possible, and improve those services. As part of this use of information, we may provide aggregate information to our partners about how our customers, collectively, use our site. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use their services and our Website, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal online experience. Again, isongU never discloses aggregate information to a partner in a manner that would identify you personally.
Our cookies do not collect Personal Information, and we do not combine the general information collected through cookies with other Personal Information to tell us who you are or what your screen name or email address is.
isongU does not allow advertisements on its website, so you do not need to worry about advertisers setting cookies to target users with specific adverts on our website.
isongU may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if isongU, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that isongU goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, customer 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 isongU may continue to use your Personal Information as set forth in this policy.
Protection of isongU and others:
We may release Personal Information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with that law; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of isongU, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
Except as set forth above, you will be notified when your Personal Information may be shared with third parties, and will be able to prevent the sharing of this information.
Privacy within Mass Exposure
If your song makes it to Mass Exposure, you the artist may continue to remain private. We can release the music using pseudo-names and animated videos that do not reveal your identity. isongU will protect metadata from third parties if the artist chooses to remain private.
If, upon qualifying for Mass Exposure, the artist chooses to go public and share their images and other information, we will share only the data that the artist wishes to share. isongU will never share information that was not released by the artist for isongU to share.
Personal Information exchanged between fans and music artists:
If a music artist so wishes, we will allow reviewers (fans) to contact said music artist. Because this is the artist’s choice, for any exchange of personal information between fans and music artists, isongU has no control over and no liability for the use of this personal information.
However, by signing this agreement, both reviewers and music artists agree that they will 1) Not disclose, rent, or sell any information to any third party, 2) Use the information only in connection with the music artists mailing list, in order to provide fans with general information and news about the band, and 3) will ensure that any e-mail sent to its mailing list will include a mechanism by which the recipient can unsubscribe from the mailing list, along with clear instructions on how to do so (i.e. a functioning “opt-out” mechanism).
Your personal information is protected by a password of your choosing. isongU is not responsible for any compromise of your account should you share this password with friends, family, band members or third parties.
While isongU cannot guarantee the security of user account information: (There may be unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time.) we do provide Extended Validation SSL security as well as internal database query encryption and internal firewalls to prevent unauthorized entry and malicious use of isongU platform.
