Qopel Records and this site care about your privacy. This privacy
policy tells you what information we collect at our web sites and
how we use it. If you choose to visit any of the Qopel

INFORMATION WE COLLECT
There are many places at our sites where you can share your personal
information with us, and where you can communicate with others.
Some of our sites give you the opportunity to register with us,
and sometimes registration is required before certain site features
can be used. Our registration forms may request your contact information
(such as your name, email address, mailing address, etc.), demographic
information (such as your country, gender, etc.), and profile data
(such as your music preferences, entertainment practices, etc).
You may be assigned a site username and/or password. For our internal
purposes, we use this information to communicate with you and provide
the services you have requested, and to provide a more personalized
experience on our sites. For example, your registration may allow
you to use and post to site message boards, create site profiles,
etc. We use aggregate demographic and profile information about
our audience in order to improve our service, for research purposes,
marketing/promotional purposes and/or for industry reporting purposes,
among others. By visiting our sites, you affirmatively consent to
our collection and use of your data.
and Other Communications from Us. Our registered users and customers
may receive newsletters, email communications, or communications
through other channels for, among other purposes, the promotion
and marketing of a product or service from our family of sites and
record labels, as well as other Qopel
companies, and business partners, and we may also offer other visitors
to our sites the opportunity to sign up to receive such information.
When there is a separate sign-up for newsletters, we ask for contact
information such as name and email address, and, sometimes, demographic
and profile information. By visiting our sites, you affirmatively
consent to our collection and use of your data. We use this information
in the same manner as we use the contact information in the Registration
process described above. We may offer our users the choice whether
to receive mailings from others that we think will be of interest.
Recipients of our mailings can unsubscribe by following instructions
that may appear at the end of email communications. Note that in
order to keep our registered users informed about the operation
of our services, we may send emails and announcements that are needed
for the proper functioning and administration of our sites and service.

(such as when contacting us with a question or feedback). We may
retain your emails and other information you submit to us for our
internal purposes, and to help us to serve you better.
with Friends. We may offer features where you can send information
to others, such as e-cards or "Tell A Friend" features.
We will use the contact information you enter for your friends to
send the email or e-card.
and Community Features. Our sites may offer interactive and community
features, such as message boards, chat, email accounts, short message
service (SMS), instant messaging, profiles, personal homepages,
etc. All information posted or sent through these features may be
publicly available, and you should be aware that when you voluntarily
disclose personal information (e.g., user name, email address, phone
number) through these features, that information can be collected
and used by others and may result in unsolicited communications
from other people. By accessing these features and disclosing personal
information, you affirmatively consent to the distribution of your
personal information as described above. Users' posts may be publicly
and/or internally associated with their profiles/screen-names. Users
are solely responsible for the content of messages they post or
send on public forums.
Sweepstakes and Surveys. We may also have contests, sweepstakes
and surveys at our sites. When you enter or participate in them,
we request contact information from you (such as your full name,
email address, mailing address, and telephone number) and may also
request demographic or profile information. We will use the information
you provide for the purpose of conducting the promotion (for example,
to contact you if you have won). We may also use the information
to send you newsletters and other information we think may be of
interest. Recipients of our mailings can unsubscribe by following
instructions that may appear at the end of the email communication.
Any personal information we collect may be associated with registration
information. We may share aggregate information with others. We
may sometimes partner with sponsors in offering contests, sweepstakes
or surveys, and may share (provide and receive) information with
them. By entering or participating in such contests, sweepstakes,
and surveys, you affirmatively consent to our collection and use
of your data.

of your new preferences. We will be able to honor your new preferences
most quickly if you inform us of them by following the appropriate

user's personal data. Please feel free to contact us if you have
any questions regarding making changes to your data.

Act (COPPA). We do not knowingly collect personal information from
U.S. children under 13 without appropriate parental notice and consent.
Sites that are directed to children where personal information is

children from data collection and/or use of interactive or community
features. We are committed to protecting children's privacy.

without the purchasers' consent. At each of those areas, we endeavor
policies that apply to data collection and use at those areas, and
we urge our users to review them. Please be aware that the site
at iClassics.com is an exception, where we do make e-commerce offerings,
if you use that site.

policies or how they treat information about their users, and we
advise you to check their privacy policies.
