1. WHAT INFORMATION ABOUT ME IS COLLECTED ON THE SERVICE?
Depending on your use of the Service, we collect two types of information: personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information.
Personally Identifiable Information
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Non-personally identifiable information is information that by itself cannot be used to identify or contact you, such as demographic information (like age, profession or gender). Non-personally identifiable information may also include user IP addresses, browser types, domain names, and other anonymous statistical data involving the use of the Service.
In order to upload content to the Service, you must first complete certain steps to become a registered user. During these steps, you will be required to provide us with information (including personally identifiable information) such as name, postal address, email address and credit card and billing information. We may also receive personally identifiable information about you from third parties providing credit and debit card authorization and fraud screening services as part of the registration process. This information is necessary for our provision of the Service and is also used to help us understand who uses the Service, to improve the Service, to contact users about the Service and/or for billing purposes.
Cookies and Action Tags
We also collect non-personally identifiable information passively using “cookies” and “action tags.”
In addition to cookies that we place on your computer, cookies may also be placed on your computer by third parties that we use to display or serve advertisements on the Service or to collect non-personally identifiable information in order to provide advertising-related services. In the course of serving advertisements on this Web site, our third-party advertisers may place or recognize unique cookies on your browser.
You do not have to accept cookies to use the Service. Although most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, you may reset your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or to reject cookies generally. Most browsers offer instructions on how to do so in the "Help" section of the toolbar. While you are not required to accept our cookies to access the Service, if you reject cookies, certain products, offerings, features, or resources of the Service may not work properly and you may experience some loss of convenience.
"Action tags," also known as web beacons or gif tags, are a web technology used to help track Web site usage information, such as how many times a specific page has been viewed. Action tags are invisible to you, and any portion of the Service, including advertisements, or email sent on our behalf, may contain action tags.
By using cookies and action tags together, we are able to gain valuable information to improve the Service and measure the effectiveness of our advertising and marketing campaigns. We do not disclose any of your personally identifiable information to our advertising partners.
We also collect non-personally identifiable information through our Internet log files, which record data such as user IP addresses, browser types, domain names, and other anonymous statistical data involving the use of the Service. This information may be used to analyze trends, to administer the Service, to monitor the use of the Service, and to gather general demographic information. We may link this information to personally identifiable information for these and other purposes such as personalizing your experience on the Service and evaluating our Services in general.
3. DOES HARMONY LINE COLLECT INFORMATION FROM CHILDREN UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE?
We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. Harmony Line does not knowingly collect or maintain personally identifiable information or non-personally-identifiable information from persons under 13 years of age, and no part of our website is directed to persons under 13. We take steps to ensure that those who wish to register personal information on our website meet certain age requirements before they can do so. We take children’s privacy seriously, and encourage parents to play an active role in their children's online experience at all times.
4. WHAT DOES HARMONY LINE DO WITH THE INFORMATION IT COLLECTS?
In general, we use the information collected on the Service to provide the Service to you and process your transactions, to help us understand who uses the Service, to improve the Service, and to contact you for customer service and billing purposes.
We may use your information to send you a welcoming email that may confirm your user name and password. If you “opt-in,” we may send you electronic newsletters, contact you about Harmony Line products, services, information and news that may be of interest to you, and provide you with targeted feedback. If you no longer desire to receive these communications, we will provide you with the option to change your preferences. In addition, if you identify yourself to us by sending us an email with questions or comments, we may use your information (including personally identifiable information) to respond to your questions or comments, and we may file your questions or comments for future reference. We may also use the information collected to send you important service announcements and updates regarding the Service or, if you are a subscriber, about your billing account status. You will not be able to unsubscribe from these service announcements and updates as they contain important information relevant to your use of the Service.
We may also use the information gathered on the Service to perform statistical analysis of user behavior or to evaluate and improve our Services. We may link some of this information to personally identifiable information for internal purposes only or to improve your experience with the Service.
5. WHEN DOES HARMONY LINE DISCLOSE INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES?
Laws and Legal Rights
Third Parties Generally
We may provide to third parties information about you that does not allow you to be identified or contacted, including where such information is combined with similar information of other users of the Service. For example, we might inform third parties regarding the number of unique users who visit the Service, the demographic breakdown of our registered users of the Service, or the products and/or services purchased using the Service and the vendors of such products and services. The third parties to which we may provide this information may include potential or actual advertisers, providers of advertising products or services (including vendors and Web site tracking services), commercial partners, sponsors, licensees, researchers and other similar parties.

7. IS THE INFORMATION COLLECTED ON THE SERVICE SECURE?
Notwithstanding the above commitments to protect your information (including personally identifiable information) from loss, misuse or alteration by third parties, you should be aware that there is always some risk involved in transmitting information over the Internet. There is also some risk that others could find a way to thwart our security systems. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security and privacy of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
8. WHAT CHOICES DO I HAVE REGARDING THE COLLECTION, DISCLOSURE AND DISTRIBUTION OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION?
9. CAN I UPDATE OR CORRECT MY PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION?
You should be aware that it is not technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to us from our system. The need to back-up our systems to protect information from inadvertent loss means that a copy of your personally identifiable information may exist in a non-erasable form that will be difficult or impossible for us to locate. We promise that promptly after receiving your request, all personally identifiable information stored in databases we actively use and other readily searchable media will be updated, corrected, changed or deleted, as appropriate, as soon as reasonably practicable.
