For example, when you sign up to our newsletter we store your name and email address in our database. Users who purchase music, digital files and / or merchandise also have their billing information and full name stored. We use Paypal, a third party payment processor, so we do not store your credit card or banking information. The information we collect may be used to provide you with customer support, send you communications such as special offers, promotions, bill you for the Services (if applicable), and email updates on the Services.
NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION AND AGGREGATED DATA
We may combine your Personal Information with Non-Personal Information and aggregate it with information collected from other users of the Website and Services (“Aggregated Data”). We collect Aggregated Data to enhance your user experience, to improve our Services generally and to analyse and understand how our Website and Services are used. We may also use the combined information without aggregating it to serve you specifically, for instance, to deliver results to you according to your preferences or restrictions, for advertising purposes. We may share Aggregated Data with third parties for industry analysis and to deliver targeted advertising about other products and services. Any aggregated information shared in these contexts will not contain your Personal Information.
We also automatically collect certain other information when you use the Services, such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address (if using a browser), operating system, the browser type, and your activity on the Website. This information is not treated as personal information unless we combine it with or link it to any of the personally identifiable information mentioned above.
We may also automatically collect certain information through the use of "cookies”. These are small files that your browser places on your computer. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with our services, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on our services, and to improve our services. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can set your browser to notify you when you are sent a cookie. This gives you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. If you disable cookies, you may not be able to take advantage of all the features of the Services.

You control when and how (e.g. email, SMS) we send most messages to you. You have the right to opt-out of receiving commercial electronic messages at any time by providing us with written notice or clicking on the ‘unsubscribe’ option on our email newsletters.
