Universal Music Canada Inc., its parent, subsidiary and affiliated companies (“Universal”) respect the privacy concerns of the users of this site (the “Site”) and Universal customers, and has created this privacy statement to explain what information we gather from your visit to the Site and how such information, as well as information otherwise voluntarily provided to Universal, is used.
Use of Information:
As a general policy no personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, or e-mail address, is automatically collected from your visit to the Site. However, certain non-personal information is recorded by the standard operation of Universal’s Internet servers. Information such as the type of browser being used, its operating system, and your IP address is gathered in order to enhance your online experience in the Site. The various registration forms, on-line order forms, and surveys may request that you provide personal information (such as your name, mailing, and e-mail address), demographic information (such as your age and gender), and profile data (such as your preferences in entertainment). You may also opt-in to sharing such information with Universal through contests or links through our promotional or business partners. Information submitted at the time of registration or submission may be used for marketing and promotional purposes by Universal, and may be shared with our affiliates, or with business or promotional partners, with your consent. With your permission, Universal may use your contact information to send you information about Universal and what Universal is doing. You may always opt-out of receiving future mailings (see the Choice/Opt-out section below). Universal collects personal information about individual users when such personal information is provided to Universal on a voluntary basis, for the following purposes: (a) to monitor traffic to the Site; (b) to determine the future direction of the Site including any necessary technical upgrades; (c) to contact you regarding future services or changes to the Site; (d) to process purchase orders for Universal products; (e) to promote Universal and for marketing purposes; (f) to respond to customer inquiries and comments; (g) to maintain a list of Universal customers; and (h) to personalize your shopping experience by using your site behavior to shape any recommendations about products which may interest you. By providing the personal information to Universal, you agree and consent to the collection, use and/or disclosure of such information by Universal for the purposes stated above. Universal may also use or transfer personal information to its affiliates for the purposes of review, storage and processing. Personal information about users will not be sold to third parties, and will not be otherwise transferred to third parties for any uses other than those purposes stated above, without the user’s express and informed approval.
Security for all personally identifiable information is extremely important to us. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while Universal strives to protect your personal information, Universal cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once Universal receives your transmission, Universal will use best efforts to ensure its security on our systems. When you register or place an order, it’s done through a secure server. By using 128-bit encryption through Secure Socket Layers (SSL), the most advanced security available today, Universal ensures that your information will remain encrypted until it reaches the Universal server. Only then is it decrypted for use on shipping labels or contest ballots, for example.
Use of IP Addresses:
The Site may provide you the opportunity to opt-in to receive communications from us at the point where Universal requests information about you. You may also opt-in to receive communications from us through contests or links through our promotional or business partners. You always have the option of removing your name from any e-mail list to not receive future communications. In order to ensure immediate removal from any list, it is best to follow the specific instructions outlined within the communications you receive from us. However, if you are unable to complete the process indicated in the communications, then just send us an e-mail at email@example.com with a copy of the undesired email attached to the request and state that you wish to be removed from the mailing list.
Links to Other Sites:
Universal is not responsible for the content or practices of third party websites that may be linked to the Site. The Site may also be linked to websites operated by other companies. Visitors to these web sites should refer to each web site’s respective privacy policies and practices.
In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
However, certain third-party service providers have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your contest registration and entries.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
when you explicitly consent to the disclosure of such information to a third party when connecting to a third-party service that asks you if you consent to such sharing;
where we are legally required to do so, such as in response to court orders or legal process, or to establish, protect, or exercise our legal rights or to defend against legal claims or demands;
if we believe it is necessary in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, fraud, or situations involving potential threats to the rights, property, or personal safety of any person;
if we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding situations that involve abuse of the Services infrastructure or the Internet in general (such as voluminous spamming, denial of service attacks, or attempts to compromise the security of the Website infrastructure or the Services generally); and
if this information is not private, is aggregated or is otherwise non-Personal Information, such as your public user profile information and related public data (such as Tweets, likes, etc.) or the number of users who clicked on a particular link (even if only one did so).
Bulletin Boards and Chat Areas:
Guests of the Site are solely responsible for the content of messages they post on public forums, such as chat rooms and bulletin boards. Users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personal information (e.g., user name, e-mail address, phone number) on the bulletin boards or in the chat areas, that information can be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from other people.
Universal reserves the right to:
- cooperate with local, provincial and national officials in any investigation requiring either personal information; including any personal information provided online through the Site or reports about lawful or unlawful visitor activities on the Site;
- disclose any information in an individual’s account in order to satisfy any law, regulation or government request or in any legal proceeding if such disclosure is necessary or appropriate to site operation, or to protect the rights or property of Universal and its users, sponsors, providers, licensors or merchants, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities, including, without limitation, in order to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with, either intentionally or unintentionally, such rights or property.
