Introduction

Booktrack provides an online and offline hosted service that gives users the ability to access, create, edit, share, or sell material in respect of Booktrack Products (any products including but not limited to text, images, video and/or multimedia content synchronized with music, sound effects or ambient audio, created by Booktrack or any third party using Booktrack's proprietary software or Booktrack licensed technology) or to interact as a community via such platform, offered at booktrack.com or any additional successor websites or mobile applications and other applications offered by Booktrack ("Booktrack Platform" or "Platform"). We at Booktrack have created this Privacy Policy to explain how we collect, process, use and share information we obtain through our web site located at www.Booktrack.com (the "Booktrack Site"), the Booktrack Platform, and any other Internet products and services we may offer (together, the "Internet Products").

This Privacy Policy does not govern our use of any information you provide to us when you call us, write to us, or communicate with us in any manner other than through the Internet Products. Because the Internet is global, information about you that we collect or that you submit may be transferred to, processed in, and held in countries (including the United States) other than the one in which you reside.

By using the Booktrack Site, you explicitly consent to the collection, processing and use of your personal information and agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is effective as of April 30, 2015.

 

Information You Choose To Submit

You can visit the Booktrack Site without telling us who you are or revealing to us any information by which someone could personally identify you (which we will refer to in this Privacy Policy collectively as "Identifiable Personal Data").

However, to obtain access to certain areas of the Booktrack Platform and Booktrack Site (e.g., chat rooms, bulletin boards and other online forums), to receive certain services we provide (e.g., e-mail newsletters), to create Booktrack Products, to become a Booktrack customer by creating a Booktrack account, to make a purchase from the Booktrack Site, to register a product with us, or to participate in contests we may offer from time to time, you may be required to provide certain Identifiable Personal Data as well as information about yourself (for example your gender, birth date, or zip code) by which it is impossible or substantially more difficult for a third party to personally identify you without additional information (which we will refer to in this Privacy Policy collectively as "Pseudonymized Personal Data").

 

Collection and Use of Personal Data

We use Identifiable Personal Data and Pseudonymized Personal Data (which we will refer to in this Privacy Policy collectively as "Personal Data") to conclude contractual relationships with you (including account creation, which is required to access most of the Booktrack services) and to fulfill your requests for products and services, to monitor and improve our Booktrack Site, products, and services, and to contact you from time to time about us, the Booktrack Site, and our products and services. We do not use Personal Data for any other purpose.


Information We Automatically Collect

We automatically collect certain information to help us understand how you use the Booktrack Site (which we will refer to in this Privacy Policy collectively as "Usage Data").

For example, each time you visit the Booktrack Site we may automatically collect your IP address, browser type, browser, browser language and computer type, access time and date, the webpage from which you came, and the webpage(s) that you access during your visit as well as other web server log files. Such Usage Data is collected, in particular, for the safety and protection of the Booktrack site.

We also may use cookies (which are small amounts of data sent from a web server to your browser that are stored on your computer's hard drive) and web beacons (which are invisible files located on webpages that you visit) to keep track of your use of the Booktrack Site, to validate your identity, to remember your password and preferences, to tailor the Booktrack Site to meet your personal interests and needs, for our own market research purposes, to provide advertisements that we believe you may be interested in, for billing purposes, and to improve the quality of the Booktrack Site.

In addition, third parties who place advertisements on the Booktrack Site may also collect information through cookies and web beacons to ensure that their advertising systems and technologies work properly and to allow them to track responses to their advertisements. Cookies and web beacons set by these third parties are governed by the privacy policies of those third parties

Generally, you can set your browser not to accept cookies or to notify you if you are sent a cookie, giving you the opportunity to choose whether or not to accept the cookie.

Please note that if you do set your browser not to accept cookies, certain areas of the Booktrack Site and accompaniment service may not function properly. We may combine Usage Data with Personal Data in a manner that enables us to trace Usage Data to an individual user.


Our Information Sharing Practices

Except as otherwise described in this section of our Privacy Policy, we will not share your Personal Data or Usage Data (which we will refer to in this Privacy Policy collectively as "User Information") with any third party without your permission.


Advertisers

From time to time, we may share your Pseudonymized Personal Data including Usage Data to enable third parties who serve advertisements on the Booktrack Site to deliver advertisements that will be relevant to you.


Aggregated Data

From time to time, we may share aggregated User Information (excluding any credit card numbers you may provide to us to purchase any of our products or services) with third parties. We will not share any aggregated data, however, in a manner that would enable the recipient to personally identify you


Third-Party Marketers

If you affirmatively authorize us to do so, from time to time we may share your Personal Data with third parties so they may contact you regarding goods or services in which you may be interested. If you have authorized us to do, and later decide that you would no longer like us to disclose your Personal Data to third parties for the third parties' direct marketing purposes, please contact us as noted below in "Choice/Opt-Out."
