How and when do you consent to this Privacy Policy?

By submitting personal information to us (through the use of this website and/or registering an account) you agree that MusicFirst may collect, use and disclose such personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and as permitted or required by law. If you do not agree with these terms, do not provide any personal information to us. If you refuse or withdraw your consent, or if you choose not to provide us with any required personal information, we may not be able to provide you with the services of this website and/or advertisements and services that can be offered on our site only if we have access to that certain personal information.

What personally identifiable information does MusicFirst collect from you?

MusicFirst collects information in several ways. Some personal information is gathered when you register for an account. When submitting a request for an account, MusicFirst asks for your first and last name and asks that you create a unique user name and password. For teacher, administrator, and teacher accounts MusicFirst will also request your email address and/or other contact information. When using the service MusicFirst may passively collect your GPS location through your device. Some of this information is necessary to take advantage of our services; some of the information that is collected is used to improve our services and offer targeted services announcements.

If you contact MusicFirst we may keep a record of that correspondence. Whenever MusicFirst collects personal information we make an effort to include a link to this Privacy Policy on that page.

What are some things we do NOT do?

We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, login name, or password, in an unsecure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication and we will not request the contact information, including email, of a minor. Additionally we will not request any confidential or personal information through social networking sites, including, but not limited to, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, FourSquare, and Facebook.

What happens when you call or write to our Customer Service? 

When you call or write to our Customer Service, we may collect contact information, such as name, phone number, mailing address and/or e-mail address to process a service request. No such information will be collected directly from a minor. 

What are cookies and how does MusicFirst use them?

MusicFirst may use cookies to store and sometimes track information about you. A “cookie” is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Generally, we use cookies to:

Estimate our audience size - Each browser accessing MusicFirst may be given a unique cookie which is then used to determine the extent of repeat usage and to help target advertisements based on user interests and behavior.

Monitor our services – It may be necessary from time to time for MusicFirst to monitor and/or track site usage as part of an internal audit of our services. Portions of this audit may be performed through the use of temporary cookies placed on your computer by the MusicFirst site.

Facilitate login – Cookies may be used to collect and store login information to facilitate future logins.  

Some cookies used by MusicFirst are strictly necessary and essential in order to enable you to move around the site and service and use its features. Without these cookies, services you have asked for cannot be provided; they are deleted when you close your browser. Performance cookies are used to collect information in an anonymous form about how visitors use the service. MusicFirst may also use your IP address to help diagnose problems with its server and to improve its service and may perform IP lookups to determine which domain you are coming from to more accurately gauge user demographics. Information received in these forms is not combined with other information about you from any other source. 

DO NOT TRACK. MusicFirst does not respond to Do Not Track Requests.

How does MusicFirst use your information and with whom is your information shared?

MusicFirst’s primary goal in collecting personal information is in providing you the best service possible through its site. The majority of information that is collected about you is for the purpose of verifying account registration and delivering relevant services and announcements. 

MusicFirst may retain your account information for as long as permitted by law and as long as is necessary to permit you to use our services without the requirement of resubmitting the same information.

Except as provided herein, MusicFirst shall not sell, rent, trade or otherwise transfer any personal and/or traffic data or communications content to any third party without your explicit permission, unless it is obliged to do so under applicable laws or by order of the competent authorities 

Your information may be used to effect a corporate transaction, in connection with the sale, merger, spin-off or other corporate reorganization of our corporation, where the information is provided to the new controlling entity in regular course of business. In the event of such an occurrence, every effort will be made by MusicFirst to inform you of the transfer of your personal information.

Your information may be disclosed as is required by our insurers and by regulatory agencies or to employees, contractors, consultants, and agents of MusicFirst to perform necessary actions in the normal course of business. No more information than is required in these circumstances will be provided.

What about linked websites?

MusicFirst’s web pages and applications may contain links that will let you leave the MusicFirst service and access another website. These “linked websites” are not under the control of MusicFirst and it is possible that these websites have different privacy policies. This policy applies solely to personal information that is acquired on this website (MusicFirst.com) and through the MusicFirst application and service. MusicFirst accepts no responsibility or liability for your use or disclosure of personal information to linked websites.

What are your choices regarding collection, use, and distribution of your information?

You also have choices with respect to cookies. By modifying your browser preferences, you have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject all cookies MusicFirst may not be displayed or function in the way intended by MusicFirst.

What is MusicFirst’s policy on allowing you to update, correct, or delete your personally identifiable information?

If you wish to update, correct, or delete any of the information about you stored by MusicFirst you can do so by visiting the account settings on your account profile. For all other information changes or requests, please send an inquiry to [email protected].

What security precautions are in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of your information?

MusicFirst shall take the appropriate organizational and technical measures to protect the personal information and IP data provided to it or collected by it necessary to comply fully with any and all applicable laws, obligations, and regulations.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, MusicFirst cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.

How long is your personal information stored?

MusicFirst will retain your personal information and IP information as long as is permitted by applicable laws and regulations.

What else should you know about your privacy?

If you choose to use the MusicFirst website and service you should be aware that any information transmitted electronically via the World Wide Web or wirelessly might not be secure. MusicFirst assumes no liability for the loss of any information that you transmit to us via the World Wide Web. 

We may release personal information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with a law; to enforce or apply our Terms of Use and other policies; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of MusicFirst, our employees, our users, or others

When is the effective date of this policy, and what about future modifications?

This Privacy Policy is effective as of Wednesday, July 9th, 2014. MusicFirst reserves the right to make changes, deletions, modifications, or provide supplements to this policy from time to time. Changes will apply to the information collected after the date of changes as well as to existing information held by us and will take effect immediately upon publication, unless otherwise stated in writing by MusicFirst. You agree that the express acceptance by you, or your continued use of the MusicFirst website after publication of changes, shall constitute your acceptance of the Privacy Policy.
