Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. Accordingly, we have developed this Policy in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate and disclose and make use of personal information. The following outlines our privacy policy. It is BIGSTEREO’s (bigstereo.net) policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, BIGSTEREO collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. BIGSTEREO’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how BIGSTEREO’s visitors use its website. From time to time, BIGSTEREO may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

BIGSTEREO also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. BIGSTEREO does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to BIGSTEREO’s websites choose to interact with BIGSTEREO in ways that require BIGSTEREO to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that BIGSTEREO gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a user account at bigstereo.net to provide a username and email address. BIGSTEREO collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with BIGSTEREO. BIGSTEREO does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

BIGSTEREO may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, BIGSTEREO may monitor the most popular pages on the site. BIGSTEREO may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, BIGSTEREO does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

BIGSTEREO discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on BIGSTEREO’s behalf or to provide services available at BIGSTEREO’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using BIGSTEREO’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. BIGSTEREO will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, BIGSTEREO discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when BIGSTEREO believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of BIGSTEREO, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the BIGSTEREO website and have supplied your email address, BIGSTEREO may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with BIGSTEREO and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. BIGSTEREO takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. BIGSTEREO uses cookies to help BIGSTEREO identify and track visitors, their usage of BIGSTEREO website, and their website access preferences. BIGSTEREO visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using BIGSTEREO’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of BIGSTEREO’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by BIGSTEREO and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, BIGSTEREO may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in BIGSTEREO’s sole discretion. BIGSTEREO encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a user account, you should also check your profile settings for alerts to these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
