Last Updated: November 21, 2012

 

The Zappa Family Trust (“Company,” or “We,” or “Us,” or “Our”) has created this privacy policy (the “Policy”) to explain our privacy practices so you will understand when and how personal information is collected, used, disclosed and protected with respect to this website (the “Site”). Individuals must be 18 years of age or older to use this Site and you warrant that you are 18 years of age or older. By using the Site, you consent to the privacy practices described in this Policy, as modified from time to time by us. Therefore, you should carefully review this Policy so you understand our privacy practices.

 

Your information and how our Site makes use of it

Our Site may collect up to two kinds of information: personal (such as your name, address, and e-mail address, etc.) and aggregate information (such as the number of users who log on to the Site on a daily basis). As a general policy, no personally identifiable information is automatically collected from your visit to our Site. However, if you choose to participate in any promotional, e-commerce, mailing lists or interactive activities offered on the Site, you may be asked to provide us with some specific information about yourself (“Personal Information”). When you set up an account on the Site, or purchase an item from the Site, we collect Personal Information (which you provide) that may include your: (i) first and last name, age and gender; (ii) billing address; (iii) shipping address; (iv) other shipping addresses; (v) email address; (vi) phone number; (vii) credit card information; (viii) items purchased from us; and (ix) browsing and buying patterns. Please note, Company does not retain, or otherwise store, credit card or other financial information provided to us, on our equipment or facilities. The Personal Information you submit will be used by us and our parent, subsidiaries, agents, vendors, representatives, affiliates, joint venturers, sponsors and/or partners, successors and assigns (“Affiliated Third Parties”), to carry out your requests and orders, respond to your inquiries, to notify you (if applicable) regarding any offers, and to provide you with additional services.  You’re free to not give us Personal Information, but in such event, you will not be able to participate in any offer or sale on the Site.   


From time to time, we may collect general statistical or aggregate information. Such information can include the type of browsers being used (e.g., Internet Explorer®, Chrome®, Safari®), the operating system or mobile application you are using (e.g., Windows 7®, Mac® OS iPhone/iPad®, Droid®), the number of users that visit a specific page on the Site and the character and duration of such visits. This information may be used to help analyze Site traffic and improve our services. At no point, however, will the aggregate information personally identify you.

We reserve the right to disclose any Personal Information or aggregate information if required to do so by law, including compliance with legal process served on Company, or if we believe that such action is necessary in order to: (a) to protect or defend the legal rights or property of Company, the Site, or its users; or (b) in an emergency to protect the health and safety of the Site's users or the general public.

You should refer to the rest of this Policy to see how we use, disclose and protect this information:

 

Information You Give Us

 

We collect information you give us when you use our Site. Examples include, but are not limited to, the following:

 

Š         Automatically Collected Information. We automatically receive certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, when you visit the Site, our systems automatically collect your IP address and the type of browser you use.  Information may be automatically collected through the use of “cookies” which are discussed in more detail below. We may also collect information about your browsing behavior, such as IP address information, entry and exit points for the Site, search terms, website addresses you visit, page views, and impressions.  In addition, in an effort to prevent fraud or misuse of your Personal Information, our Affiliated Third Parties may collect information in connection with evaluating your computer, mobile phone, or other Internet access device to potentially identify any malicious software or activity that may affect the availability, viability, and/or security of your commercial transaction with us.

 

Š         Cookies. Cookies are small data files placed on your hard drive by a website when you visit. These files identify your computer and record your preferences and other data about your visit so that when you return to the site, the site knows who you are and can personalize your visit. In general, we use cookies to collect information so that we can determine how to improve our sites by seeing which areas and features are most popular, to personalize the site and improve the site experience. Most browsers automatically accept cookies as the default setting. You can modify the setting to reject cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the sites you visit by editing browser options. If you decide not to accept our cookies, you will still be able to access those parts of our site available to the general public but, as referenced above, you may not be able to use or participate in any offers or possibly some of the Site’s features or services and you may have a less satisfactory experience. 

 

Children's Privacy Policy

 

This website is intended for use by individuals who are 18 years of age or older.  Accordingly, Company does not knowingly, directly or passively, collect information from individuals under the age of 18. If we create offers that make it appropriate to collect information from individuals under the age of 18, we will notify you of the change in this Policy.

 

USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

 

Internal Use of Personal Information

 

In general, we use Personal Information internally to serve our users or customers, to enhance and extend our customer and user relationships so our users or customers may take maximum advantage of our products and services. For example, by understanding how you use our Site from your computer, we are able to customize and personalize your experience. More specifically, we use Personal Information to provide services or to anticipate and resolve problems with our Site, or to respond to customer support inquiries, and to potentially create and inform you of new offers from Company that may better meet your needs.   

 

Disclosure of Personal Information and Aggregate Information

 

We will not rent, sell, or share Personal Information about you with other people or non-affiliated companies.  However, both Personal Information and aggregate information may be shared with our Affiliated Third Parties in order to facilitate your commercial transaction with us.  As a result, an Affiliated Third Party’s privacy policy may differ from ours.  This may include privacy polices located at https://cms.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/marketingweb?cmd=_render-content&content_ID=ua/Privacy_full&locale.x=en_US; http://barfkoswill.shop.musictoday.com/Privacy.aspx; and http://www.bigcommerce.com/privacy. We encourage you to review and understand the foregoing privacy policies before providing your Personal Information to us.

 

The following section describes these disclosure practices more fully:

     

Š         Internal Analysis. We may use information about you for our own internal statistical, design, or operational purposes, such as to estimate our audience size, measure aggregate traffic patterns as well as to understand demographic, customer interest, and other trends among our users. We may outsource these tasks to third parties; however, the third parties may not use or disclose your Personal Information for any other purposes.

 

Š         Affiliated Third Parties: As referenced above, Personal Information as well as aggregate information may be shared with our Affiliated Third Parties and stored on their respective equipment and facilities. We will keep all information collected from this Site separate from other information stored by such Affiliated Third Parties on their equipment.  However, as referenced above, Company does not retain or otherwise store credit card or other financial information provided to us on our equipment or facilities.

 

Š         Business Transfers: Information about our users and the Site is one of our most important business assets. Therefore, information about our users, including Personal Information, will be disclosed as part of any merger or acquisition, creation of a separate business to provide the Site or fulfill products, sale or pledge of company assets as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership in which Personal Information would be transferred as one of the business assets of the company.

 

Š         Protection of Company and Others:  As referenced above, we release Personal Information when we believe it is appropriate to comply with the law (e.g., a lawful subpoena, warrant or court order); to enforce or apply our policies; to protect our rights or property, or to protect our users from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful use of, our Site; or if we reasonably believe that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious physical injury to any person requires disclosure of communications or justifies disclosure of records without delay.

 

Security of Personal Information

 

We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect against unauthorized access, use, modification and disclosure of Personal Information in our custody and control. We also are committed to employing reasonable technology in order to protect the security of our Site. However, even with the best technology, no Site is 100% secure. We will take reasonable measures which we believe are appropriate to protect your Personal Information from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction, and, where possible, will ask that any third parties to whom we may transfer such information take comparable steps to protect that security.

 

Third Party Websites

 

Please be aware that we may provide links to third party websites from the Site as a service to our guests and we are not responsible for the content or information collection practices of those sites. Please also note that these websites' privacy policies will differ from those of Company. Therefore, we encourage your to review and understand their privacy practices before providing them with information.

 

Network and Information Security

 

You should be aware that Company has no control over the security of other websites on the Internet that you might visit, interact with, or from which you buy products or services. 

 

Updating This Policy

 

We may revise and update this Policy if our practices change, as technology changes, or as we add new services or change existing ones. Any changes will be posted to this document so that you will always know what information we gather and how we use it.  You are encouraged to print or download a copy of this document for your records. If we make any material changes to our Policy or how we handle your personal information, we will post an "update" notice to our site and change the date of the Policy. If we are going to use any Personal Information in a manner that is materially different from that stated in our Policy at the time we collected such information, we will give you a reasonable opportunity to consent to the change. However, if users have opted out of all communication with the Site, or deleted/deactivated their account, then they will not be contacted, nor will their personal information be used in this new manner. We will use information in accordance with the most current privacy policy.
