INFORMATION COLLECTED FROM YOU WITH TECHNOLOGY
If you communicate with us, we may retain this correspondence to improve our products, services, and the Site, and for other disclosed purposes. We may use information you provide to us in order to send you updates, such as notifications of changes to the terms of our services or important information about our services and products.
DOES VENUE SHARE INFORMATION WITH COMPANIES OR OTHER ORGANIZATIONS NOT A PART OF VENUE ?
You are one of the most valuable assets of our business. We aren’t in the business of selling information about our Guests. However, if there is a value for our Guests, we will share your information or send you messages on behalf of another company as described below. We will also share information for security reasons.
Companies That Are “Standing in the Shoes” of Venue
Sometimes we hire companies to help us deliver products or services, like a shipping company that delivers a package. In those instances, we need to share your information with them. These companies are basically “standing in the shoes” of Venue , and they are allowed to use the information only to deliver the product or service upon approval of Venue only.
Companies Offering Promotions, Products, or Services
On occasion, we offer promotions–like sweepstakes or free subscriptions–in conjunction with a sponsor. We will share your information with the sponsors if they need it to send you a product, such as a magazine subscription or contest prize. We may share your information with those sponsors so that they can send you other special promotions they offer, but only if you give us your permission to do so, and we will share it only with that specific sponsor. In addition, Venue occasionally sends e-mail promotions out to our customers on behalf of third-party sponsors. In this instance, we don’t share your name with the third party–we do the mailing for them. Again, we only send these promotions to you if you’ve given your permission by signing up for our e-mail list.
Sometimes we may provide a link to content that is created by a third-party Web site. In some instances the third-party sites will collect information in order to facilitate the transaction or to make the use of their content more productive and efficient. In these circumstances the information collected may be shared between Venue and our third-party sponsors. Third-party sponsors may also have their own privacy policies posted on their Web sites.
Links to Other Outside Web Sites
Our Web site may contain links to outside Web sites with which we do not have affiliation, partnership or other cooperative agreement. Venue does not share your personal information with those Web sites and is not responsible for their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy policies of those companies.
Purchase or Sale of Businesses
Online business is still in a very early stage and is changing and evolving rapidly. As Venue continually looks for ways to improve our business, we may buy or sell a company. If we buy or sell a business, the names collected will likely be transferred as a part of the sale. Information about registrants will be used in the aggregate. However, if we buy a business, we will honor the requests that customers made of that business regarding e-mail communications. In the event that we sell a business, we will do everything in our power to ensure that the e-mail communications requests you made of us are honored.
Organizations That Help Protect the Security and Safety of Our Guests and Our Sites
Venue will disclose information about individual users to governmental or judicial authorities or law enforcement agencies, or to other individuals or entities in response to a subpoena, court order, or other legal process. Further, Venue may share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities or suspected fraud, or to enforce or apply the terms and conditions of our agreement.
Access and Correction
You have a right to know about the personal information that the Venue website holds about you. You also have a right to correct, amend or delete such information if it is incorrect. If you wish to exercise these rights, please contact us by post or e-mail at the address shown in the “Contact” section below.
From time to time, we may notify you of special promotions, changes to our Site, new product lines or new service offerings, or products that we think may be of special interest to you. If you decide you no longer want to be notified of this information, you can change your choice to NO on the “MyAccount” page.
You hereby acknowledge that neither Venue nor Guitar Center is responsible for any intercepted information sent via the Internet, and you hereby release us from any and all claims arising out of or related to the use of intercepted information in any unauthorized manner.
TERMS AND MODIFICATIONS TO PRIVACY STATEMENT
The Site is not directed to children, and Venue does not knowingly solicit information from any child under the age of 13. Should a child whom we know to be under 13 send personal information to us, we will use that information only to respond directly to that child (or a parent or guardian) to inform him or her that we must have parental consent before receiving his or her personal information.
WHAT CHOICES DO I HAVE ABOUT VENUE COLLECTING, USING, AND SHARING MY INFORMATION?
It is possible for you to use much of our site without giving us any personally identifiable information. Also, as mentioned above, there are ways to limit the information collected through technology–though some of our features won’t work if you decide to do this. For the safety of minors, we request that children under the age of 18 not fill out any personal information on our Web sites without first receiving the approval of a parent or guardian.
