 What is Covered Under This Privacy Policy?

This Privacy Policy covers Panoptic Sounds’ treatment of personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") that Panoptic Sounds gathers when you are accessing Panoptic Sounds’ Service and when you use Panoptic Sounds’ services. This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that Panoptic Sounds does not own or control, or to individuals that Panoptic Sounds does not employ or manage.

What Personal Information Does Panoptic Sounds Collect?

The information we gather from customers enables us to personalize and improve our services. In connection with the Service, we request and display some personal information to other users and visitors of Service, which allows users to identify each other. We collect the information you provide us on the site and the from our customers.

Personal Information You Provide to Us:

We receive and store any information you enter on our Service or provide to us in any other way. The types of Personal Information collected may include your name, user name, password, email address, photograph or other likeness, purchase history, IP address, browser information, credit card information and any other information you provide in connection with your user account. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of many of our special features. The Personal Information you provide is used for such purposes as allowing you to interact with other users, improving the content of the Service, customizing the advertising and content you see, and communicating with you about specials and new features. When you make payments through the Service, you may need to provide financial account information, such as your credit card number, to our third-party service providers, such as Paypal, and such information may be stored and used for both billing and payment services by such third-party service providers. We do not receive your credit card information directly, but we may receive information about the transaction, such as the date and time it occurred.

Information Collected Automatically:

Generally, our service automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our site and its components, similar to TV ratings that indicate how many people watched a particular show. Panoptic Sounds only uses this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often customers use parts of the Service or services so that we can make the Service appealing to as many customers as possible, and improve those services. As part of this use of information, we may provide aggregate information to our partners about how our customers, collectively, use our site. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use their services and our Service, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal online experience. Again, Panoptic Sounds never discloses aggregate information to a partner in a manner that would identify you personally.

E-mail Communications:

We may receive a confirmation when you open an email from Panoptic Sounds if your computer supports this type of program. Panoptic Sounds uses this confirmation to help us make emails more interesting and helpful and improve our service. If you do not want to receive email or other mail from us, please send your request to PanopticSounds@gmail.com.

You can easily recognize when an affiliated business is associated with your transaction, and we will share your Personal Information that is related to such transactions with that affiliated business, if you have agreed to be solicited by marketing partners during the registration process.
