Collection of Information
We collect personally identifiable information, like names, postal addresses, email addresses, etc., when provided by our visitors. (You are free to browse our Sites without submitting personal information.)

Our Use of Your Information
Broadly speaking, we use personal information for purposes of administering and expanding our business activities, providing customer service and making available other products and services to our independent Artists and online visitors. We may also use your personal information to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, inform you of services or products, customize your experience, or to detect and protect us against error, fraud or other criminal activity. We may share your personal information with governmental agencies or other companies assisting us in fraud prevention or investigation. We may do so when: 1) permitted or required by law; 2) trying to protect against or prevent actual or potential fraud or unauthorized activity; or, 3) investigating fraud that has already taken place. The information provided to these entities is not for marketing purposes. As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings. The personal information we gather about you is generally considered one of the transferable business assets in these types of transactions. We may also transfer such information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers or any dissolution.
