Sutros Privacy Policy

Your privacy is of the utmost importance to us. And while no method of transmitting personal information over the Internet is absolutely secure, we strive to protect your privacy with secure practices and technologies. By using Sutros, you consent to the collection and use of certain personal information as described here in the Sutros Privacy Policy.

Information We Collect

Listening Open to All. You can listen to music on Sutros without registering an account and your personal identity will not be tracked. We do, however, keep tabs on standard technical information for all visitors, such as your IP address, browser type, internet service provider, operating system, cookies, the date/time stamp and clickstream data.

Account-Related Activity. You must register an account to enable certain other activities on Sutros—like uploading songs, transferring songs to your library, organizing playlists and downloading songs.

Information Volunteered. When you sign up for an account, we ask for some personal information including your email address, a password and your designated username. Later on, we may ask you for further information such as your location, date of birth, which instruments you play and which music genres are of interest to you.

Information Collected. Details about your usage may be automatically recorded by our servers and associated with your account. Usage information includes the frequency with which you use Sutros, the contacts with whom you communicate, the music you listen to, the music you download and the number of songs you upload and transfer to your library. All financial transactions related to Sutros are conducted through secure outside agents. We will never ask for sensitive information such as your credit card number or social security number.

Content Uploaded to the Site. Personal information and content that you choose to contribute to the website is publicly available and can be collected and used by others.

Information Uses

• Technical information is stored, tracked and analyzed so that we can diagnose system problems, administer the webite and enhance our functionality and design capabilities.

•We use session and persistent cookies, clear gifs and log file information to store your preferences so that you will not have to re-enter them during your session or the next time you visit Sutros. Also, we may use this data to monitor our traffic and the effectiveness of our marketing.

• We don't run pop-up ads anywhere on the site.

• Your username (not your email address) is displayed to other users on your public page and on the profile page for each song you upload. Any music you submit to Sutros may be redistributed online and through other media and may be accessed by the general public.

• We don't send unsolicited emails for marketing purposes. You can opt to receive communications from us such as newsletters and service updates when you sign up for an account. You can always change your communications preferences on your profile page.

• We provide a message service that protects your personal email address from third-party scraping and spam.

• Sutros may disclose personal information about its users if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such disclosure is necessary to respond to law enforcement officers, judicial proceeding, court order, or other legal process. We may also disclose user information so that we can enforce our Terms of Use, respond to copyright infringement notices or protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Sutros, its users or the general public.

Third-Party Advertisers and Links to Other Sites

Sutros allows third-party ad networks to serve advertisements and links to the Sutros website. These companies automatically receive your IP address when ads are served to your browser. They may also use technologies such as cookies, JavaScript, or Web Beacons to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and to personalize advertising content.

Sutros does not provide any personally identifiable information to these third-party ad networks without your consent. However, please note that if an advertiser asks Sutros to show an ad intended for a certain audience segment and you respond to that ad, the advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the profile of the audience they are trying to reach. The advertiser may also use information regarding your use of Sutros, such as the number of times you viewed an ad, to determine which ads to deliver to you in the future.

Also, all purchases of songs that appear on Sutros are processed through outside agents that are not owned or controlled by Sutros. Sutros does not disclose your personal information to these agents, nor are we responsible for any data obtained by them.

You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third-party ad networks and outside agents for more information on their practices and for instructions on how to opt-out of certain practices. Our privacy policy does not apply to other advertisers or websites, though any data obtained by third-party ad servers that is subsequently shared with Sutros falls under our Privacy Policy.

Publicly Available Information

• If you have an account, the bare minimum personal information available to other users is your username, which is associated with the songs you upload to Sutros.

• You may choose to display additional personal information that will be available to other users on your public page. By extension, this information is available throughout the entire Web.

Your Choices and Responsibilities

• Our service is intended to increase artists' availability and contact resources, though it is up to you whether, and how much, you make personally identifiable information available on Sutros. Keep in mind that once you post information on Sutros, it is available to the whole wide Web. So if you wouldn't want your ex-boyfriend, mom, former teacher or prying aunt Irene to know of certain details about you, think twice before you include them here.

• You may control and alter information available to other users on your public page by updating your profile in the dashboard.

• Unless you would like to include private contact information on your public page, users may send a message to you through the Sutros messaging service.

• Access to your account information is password-protected. Keep your account password secure and be sure to log out when you are through with your session.

Children's Privacy

Sutros complies with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act and does not knowingly collect or maintain any information from persons under the age of 13. Please see our Terms of Use for more information.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time, so please review it frequently. If we make any material changes, we will notify you here, on our homepage and any other places we deem appropriate.
