The Information We Collect and the Way We Use Information
At the time you register on our Website, you will be required to submit a valid email address and to create a password. If you are a parent or guardian and would like to allow your children to access and use the Website, you can also select usernames and passwords for each of your children. We will collect your billing information, including your credit card number and billing address, when you register so that we can process your subscription to our Website. If you are registering as a Registered Student, we may also ask you for other information, including, but not limited to, the type of instrument you or your child plays, and the name of your designated Registered Instructor.
We do not sell, rent, or in any other way use personal information collected during your use of the Website without your permission. The designated Registered Instructor of a Registered Student will have access to its Registered Students’ name and the type of instrument you or your child plays. We will notify you if we need to share your personal information to a third party because we believe it is necessary to investigate or stop illegal activities or because we are required to respond to court orders, subpoenas or other legal process.
We may communicate with you through your email address to provide administrative notices regarding your Website account. We may also communicate with you through your email address to provide you with newsletters and special offers and to notify you of updates, changes and improvements to the VirtuosoTV Website, unless you opt-out of receiving these communications.
We may passively collect information by automatically gathering general statistical information about the Website when you use certain services on the VirtuosoTV Website, such as IP address, pages viewed, number of visitors, the date and time of your visit, browser type, etc. In doing so, we do not reference you by individual name or email address. We use this data in the aggregate to determine how often visitors use parts of the Website so we can improve the Website and customize the Website’s content, layout and services. We may provide this statistical information to third parties, but when we do so we will not provide personal information without your permission.
We may use any feedback you provide to us for any purpose. We will not include your personal information with such feedback without your prior consent.
We employ reasonable and current security methods to prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure correct use of information. All registration pages are protected with Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) encryption. Account information of Registered Users is password protected. We recommend that you do not share your password with any other person. VirtuosoTV’s personnel will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. Remember to sign out of your account and close your browser window when you have finished your session. This is to help ensure that others cannot access your personal information if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place where others may have access to it.
Whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online, for example, in public areas or through email, that information can be collected and used by others. No data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be perfectly secured. As a result, while we try to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
