This Privacy Policy describes how we collect, store, use and distribute information when you use the Website to: (i) create websites for your project(s); (ii) engage with fans; and/or (iii) access any other features we make available through the Website from time to time (the “Services”).

Consent: By using the Website and/or the Services, you consent to the use and disclosure of your Personal Information as described in this Privacy Policy.

What Personal Information does MusoSites Collect?

During the course of your use of the Website and Services, we may request certain Personal Information to enhance your use of the Website and Services. “Personal Information” is any information which identifies an individual. For example, when you create a trial account, we store your project name, user name and email address in our database. Paid users also have their billing information and full name stored. We use Paypal, a third party payment processor, so we do not store your credit card or banking information. The information we collect may be used to provide you with customer support, send you communications such as special offers, promotions, bill you for the Services (if applicable), and email updates on the Services.

Non-personal information & Aggregated Data

We may combine your Personal Information with Non-Personal Information and aggregate it with information collected from other users of the Website and Services (“Aggregated Data”). We collect Aggregated Data to enhance your user experience, to improve our Services generally and to analyse and understand how our Website and Services are used. We may also use the combined information without aggregating it to serve you specifically, for instance, to deliver results to you according to your preferences or restrictions, for advertising purposes. We may share Aggregated Data with third parties for industry analysis and to deliver targeted advertising about other products and services. Any aggregated information shared in these contexts will not contain your Personal Information.

We also automatically collect certain other information when you use the Services, such as your Internet Protocol (IP) address (if using a browser), operating system, the browser type, and your activity on the Website. This information is not treated as personal information unless we combine it with or link it to any of the personally identifiable information mentioned above.

We may also automatically collect certain information through the use of “cookies”. These are small files that your browser places on your computer. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with our services, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on our services, and to improve our services. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can set your browser to notify you when you are sent a cookie. This gives you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. If you disable cookies, you may not be able to take advantage of all the features of the Services.

In addition to using cookies as described above, we also may permit certain third party companies to help us tailor advertising that we think may be of interest to users based on your use of the Website and Services and to collect and use other data about user activities on our Website and Services (e.g., to allow them to tailor ads on third party services). These companies may deliver ads that might also place cookies and otherwise track user behaviour. These companies may use information about user behaviour in order to provide customised advertisements across various services and products. In the course of providing these services, products or placing advertisements, these third party companies may place or recognise a unique cookie on your computer, and may record information to these cookies based upon your activities on our Website and Services and on third party websites. Each of these companies uses this cookie information according to their own privacy and security policies. If you wish to not have this information used for the purpose of serving you targeted ads, you may view a list of other third party service providers who collect information, and/or opt-out of such collection of information about you, by visiting www.networkadvertising.org/choices/.
