Rules and etiquette (required reading)
What Information We Collect. There are many places at our site where you can share your personal information with us, and where you can communicate with others.
Registration. Our site gives you the opportunity to register with us, and sometimes registration is required before certain site features can be used. Our registration forms request your contact information (your name, email address, mailing address, etc.), location information (such as your country, etc.), age and some profile data (such as your music preferences, entertainment practices, etc). You may be assigned a site username and/or password. We will use this information to communicate with you and provide the services you have requested, and to provide a more personalized experience on our site.† We use your information to help us improve the services we offer and for our marketing purposes.
Communications from Us (emails, newsletters, etc). The registered users and customers of this site may receive newsletters or other email communications from us and we may also offer users the opportunity to sign up to receive such information. We use the contact information from the registration process to send things to you. We may offer our users the choice to receive mailings from others that we think will be of interest. Recipients of our mailings can unsubscribe by following instructions that may appear at the end of the email newsletter. Note that in order to keep our registered users informed about the operation of our services, we may send emails and announcements that are needed for the proper functioning and administration of our sites and service.
Communications with Us. You may contact us by emailing:† firstname.lastname@example.org.
Communications with Friends. We offer features where you can send information to others, such as e-cards and special email features. We will use the contact information you enter for your friends to send the email or e-card.
Interactive and Community Features. This site has interactive and community features, (message boards, chat, email accounts, instant messaging, profiles, personal homepages, etc.) All information posted or sent through these features may be publicly available, and you should be aware that when you voluntarily disclose personal information (e.g., user name, email address, phone number) through these features, that information can be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited communications from other people. Usersí posts may be publicly and/or internally associated with their profiles/screen-names. Users are solely responsible for the content of messages they post or send on public forums
Contests, Sweepstakes and Surveys. We will also have contests on this site. When you enter or participate in them, we request contact information from you (such as your full name, email address, mailing address, and telephone number) and may also request demographic or profile information. We will use the information you provide for the purpose of conducting the promotion (for example, to contact you if you have won). We may also use the information to send you newsletters and other information we think may be of interest. Recipients of our mailings can unsubscribe by following instructions that may appear at the end of the email newsletter. Any personal information collected will be used by us and may be associated with registration information. We may share aggregate information with others. We may sometimes partner with sponsors in offering contests, sweepstakes or surveys, and may share (provide and receive) information with them.
Automatic Data Collection.
This site has features that automatically collect information from users to assist us in creating sites that honor our usersí preferences and serve their needs.
For our internal purposes, we may gather information such as the date, time, browser type, navigation history, and IP address of all visitors to our site(s). We use this information for our internal security audit log, trend analysis, and system administration, and to gather broad demographic information about our user base for aggregate use.
With Whom Your Information Is Shared.
Information provided at this site will be shared with the Black Eyed Peas, including their management, representatives, and any new label they may join.
We may also share your information with others if you choose to let us do so, such as where we offer opt-out or opt-in choices.
Other than as set forth in this policy, we do not share your personally identifiable information with other companies, apart from those acting as our agents in providing our service to you, and which agree to use it only for that purpose and to keep the information secure and confidential. We will also disclose information we maintain when required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena or other legal obligation, in response to a law enforcement agencyís request, or in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property. You should also be aware that courts of equity, such as U.S. Bankruptcy Courts, may have the authority under certain circumstances to permit your information to be shared or transferred to third parties without your permission.
We may share (provide and receive) aggregate information, which is not personally identifiable, with others. This information may include demographic data such as the gender and/or geographic location of groups of users, but it will not include personal information (such as your name or email address). We use aggregate demographic information about our audience in order to improve our service, for marketing purposes and/or industry reporting purposes.
You have the option of removing your name from any email list. Follow the specific instructions outlined in the emails you receive from us.
If a userís personally identifiable information changes (such as zip code), we endeavor to provide a way to correct or update that userís personal data. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding making changes to your data.
