HL is a music-oriented site that provides promotional services to musical artists and to music companies (“Users”). The site is designed to help “Users” promote their music for licensing by allowing them to post and submit their musical content owned and/or created by them. HL members can upload, store and submit their music and related metadata to various licensing opportunities in order for promotional purposes. Registered Users can update their Profile information at any time and can control what opportunities they wish to submit for.

INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE BY HL

HL collects User submitted personal information such as name, mailing address, email address, telephone number to authenticate Users, and to send notifications to those Users relating to, without limitation, the HL service, special events, contests and special offers.
As is standard practice on many corporate websites, HL also logs non-personally-identifiable information including IP address, profile information, aggregate user data, and browser type, from Listeners and other visitors to the site. This data is used to improve the website services, to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. HL will not use the information collected to market directly to that person. This non-personally-identifiable information may be shared with third parties to provide more relevant services and advertisements to Listeners. User IP addresses are recorded for security and monitoring purposes.

User “Profile pictures” including “Screen Name” is displayed to other registered members in order to display opportunity results for music that has been short-listed or selected for licensing.

HL may send email messages which use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the HL website. When a customer clicks one of these URLs, they pass through our web server before arriving at the destination web page. HL tracks this click-through data to help determine interest in particular promotions and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked simply avoid clicking text or graphic links in the email.

From time to time, HL or a partner may sponsor a promotion or contest on HL. Site “Visitors” or “Users” may be asked to provide personal information including name, email address or home address or to answer questions in order to participate. HL may transfer personal information to certain ad partners that you have explicitly requested to receive information from. It will be clear at the point of collection who is collecting the personal information and whose privacy statement will apply.

HL may also collect information for market research purposes to gain a better understanding of our customers and thus provide more valuable service. HL also collects information regarding customer activities on our website, and on related websites. This helps us to determine how best to provide useful information to customers and to understand which parts of our websites and Internet services are of most interest to them.

USE OF COOKIES

BLOG, PROFILES, AND PUBLIC FORUMS
Please be aware that whenever you voluntarily post public information to HL BLOG, Profile or any other Public Forum, that information can be accessed by the public and can in turn be used by those people to send you unsolicited communications.

CORRECTING/UPDATING OR REMOVING INFORMATION

HL Users may modify or remove any of the personal information or music contained in their account at any time by logging into their account and accessing features such as Edit Profile or Edit Songs.

SECURITY

HL User accounts are secured by User-created passwords. HL takes precautions to insure that account information is kept private. HL uses reasonable measures such as encryption to protect private information that is stored within our database against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction, and we restrict access to such private information to those employees who need access to perform their job functions, such as our customer service personnel and technical staff. Please note that HL cannot guarantee the security of User account information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of member information at any time. Users are urged to also take precautions to protect their personal data by changing passwords often using a combination of letters and numbers, and using a secure web browser. For any additional information about the security measures HL uses on our website, please contact us at info@hitlicense.com.

SHARING AND DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION HL COLLECTS

Except as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy, HL will not disclose personal information to any third party unless believe that disclosure is necessary: (1) to conform to legal requirements or to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other legal process received by HL, whether or not a response is required by applicable law; (2) to enforce the HL Terms and Conditions or to protect our rights; or (3) to protect the safety of members of the public and Listeners of the service. HL reserves the right to transfer personal information to a successor in interest that acquires rights to that information as a result of the sale of HL or substantially all of its assets to that successor in interest.

There are also times when it may be advantageous for HL to make certain personal information about you available to companies that HL has a strategic relationship with or that perform work for HL to provide products and services to you on our behalf.

CHANGES IN OUR PRIVACY POLICY

From time to time HL may make changes to our Privacy Policy. If we make changes, we will post them on our site to make Users aware of what the changes are so Users will always be aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and when we may disclose it. A User is bound by any minor changes to the Privacy Policy when she or he uses the site after those changes have been posted If, however, we are going to use Listeners’ personally identifiable information in a manner materially different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify by posting a notice on HL for 30 days.
