Information we collect about you

  • Information you provide. We may collect and store any personal information you enter on our website or provide to us in some other manner. This includes personally identifying information, including, but not limited to, your name, address, e-mail address, and telephone number, and, if you transact business with us, financial information such as your payment method (valid credit card number, type, expiration date or other financial information). We may also request information about your hobbies/interests, your age, and other demographic information such as your hometown, your gender or your username.

  • Information about others. We may also collect and store personal information about other people that you provide to us, such as their name, address and email address. If you use our website to send others (relatives, coworkers, friends, etc.) a product as a gift, we may store your personal information, and the personal information of each such recipient in order to process those requests or facilitate future activities.

Use of technologies (including cookies) to collect information. We use a variety of technologies to collect information from your computer regarding your activities on our site. Some of this is done to enhance your experience on our site, as well as help us better analyze user activity patterns with respect to the site. Technologies used include, but are not limited to, cookies and web beacons. Also, we may allow third-party companies to advertise on our site. These companies may also use tracking technologies such as cookies to collect information about user activity in order to gauge advertising effectiveness.

How we use information we collect

In General. We may use information that we gather about you to improve our products and services, provide customer support and manage your account, analyze your activity to gauge interest in our products and services or those of other third-parties, and communicate with you via postal mail, telephone, email, etc. We may also use this information to help with the general operation of our business.

Financial information. We may use financial information or other payment methods to process payment for any purchases made on our website, to protect against or identify potential fraudulent transactions, and otherwise as needed to manage our business.


With whom we share your information

We want you to understand when and with whom we may share personal or other information we have collected about you or your activities on our web site or while using our services.

Personal information. AceMusicTeacher retains a strong committment to respecting our customers' privacy. We do not share your personal information with others except as indicated below or when we inform you and give you an opportunity to opt out of having your personal information shared. We may share personal information with:

  • Authorized service providers: Typically, our authorized service providers help us in providing payments for services rendered and we may share your personal information to facilitate this transaction. They may also perform other business essential functions that are too numerous to enumerate one-by-one.

  • Business partners: When you make purchases or engage in promotions offered through our website or our services, we may share personal information with the businesses with which we partner to offer you those products, services, promotions, contests and/or sweepstakes. When you elect to engage in a particular merchant's offer or program, you authorize us to provide your email address and other information to that merchant. We will always provide you with the opportunity not to share information with these businesses.

  • Other Situations. We also may disclose your information, including personal information:

  • In response to a subpoena or similar investigative demand, a court order, or a request for cooperation from a law enforcement or other government agency; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law. In such cases, we may raise or waive any legal objection or right available to us.

  • When we believe disclosure is appropriate in connection with efforts to investigate, prevent, or take other action regarding illegal activity, suspected fraud or other wrongdoing; to protect and defend the rights, property or safety of our company, our users, our employees, or others; to comply with applicable law or cooperate with law enforcement; or to enforce our website terms and conditions or other agreements or policies.

  • In connection with a substantial corporate transaction, such as the sale of our business, a divestiture, merger, consolidation, or asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy.

Any third parties to whom we may disclose personal information may likely have their own privacy policies which describe how they use and disclose personal information. Those policies will govern how your personal information is handled once we have shared it with those third parties as described in this Privacy Policy. If you want to learn more about their privacy practices, we encourage you to visit the websites of those third parties. These entities or their servers may be located either inside or outside the United States.


Third-party website vendors

There are a number of places on our website where you may click on a link to access other websites that do not operate under in accordance with our Privacy Policy. For example, clicking on an advertisement on our website may take you to a website that is not under our control. These third-party websites may independently solicit and collect information, including personal information, from you and, in some instances, provide us with information about your activities on those websites. We recommend that you consult the privacy statements of all third-party websites you visit by clicking on the "privacy" link typically located at the bottom of the webpage you are visiting.


How you can access your personal information

If you have an online account with us, you have the ability to review and update your personal information online by logging into your account. More information about how to contact us is provided below.

If you have an online account with us, you also may choose to close your account at any time by logging in and clicking the "Permanently close account" link. After you close your account, you will not be able to sign in to our website or access any of your personal information. However, you can open a new, separate account at any time. If you close your account, we may still retain certain information associated with your account for analytical purposes and record-keeping integrity, as well as to prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, enforce our terms and conditions, take actions we deem necessary to protect the integrity of our web site or our users, or take other actions otherwise permitted by law. In addition, if certain information has already been provided to third parties as described in this Privacy Policy, retention of that information will be subject to those third parties' policies.


Your choices about collection and use of your information

  • You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but that may result in you being unable to use certain features of our website because such information may be required in order for you to register as a member; purchase goods and/or services; participate in a contest, promotion, survey, and/or sweepstakes; or initiate other transactions on our website.


Protecting your personal information

We take appropriate security measures (including physical, electronic and procedural measures) to help safeguard your personal information from unauthorized access and disclosure. For example, only authorized employees are permitted to access personal information, and they may do so only for permitted business functions. In addition, we use SSL encryption in the transmission of your sensitive personal information between your system and ours, and we use firewalls to help prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to your personal information.

We want you to feel confident using our website to transact business. However, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take steps to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information, searches, or other communications will always remain secure. Users should be aware of how they handle and disclose their personal information and should avoid sending personal information through insecure email. Please refer to the Federal Trade Commission's website at http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/menus/consumer/data.shtm for information about how to protect yourself against identity theft.


Information you provide about yourself while using our service

We provide areas on our websites where you can post information about yourself and others and communicate with others or upload content such as photographs. Such postings are governed by our Terms and Conditions policy. In addition, such postings may appear on other websites or when searches are executed on the subject of your posting. Also, whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information on publicly-viewable web pages (such as your profile page), that information will be publicly available and can be collected and used by others. For instance, if you post your email address, you may receive unsolicited messages. We cannot control who reads your posting or what other users may do with the information you voluntarily post, so we encourage you to exercise discretion and caution with respect to your personal information.



Changes to this Privacy Policy

We will occasionally update this Privacy Policy to reflect changes in our practices and services. When we post changes to this Privacy Policy, we will revise the “last updated” date at the top of this Privacy Policy. If we make any material changes in the way we collect, use, and/or share your personal information, we will notify you by sending an e-mail to the e-mail address you most recently provided us in your account, profile or registration (unless we do not have such an email address), and/or by prominently posting notice of the changes on our website. We recommend that you check our website from time to time to inform yourself of any changes in this Privacy Policy or any of our other policies.
