What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Cookies are very small text files placed on your hard drive by a computer server. A cookie serves as your identification card, improves your experience with us, and helps us remember who you are while you are using our services.
For instance, to prevent requiring you to re-enter your username and password accessing areas of our website, once you have logged into your account, cookies will hold your information for you.
We use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your device for a set period of time or until you delete them).
Cookies also tell us that you returned to a specific web page on our site, and help us to also know your preferences and habits so we may better customize our offerings for you.
If you do not accept cookies, you can prevent cookies from being saved on your computer by changing the settings of your web browser.
You can also delete cookies which have been previously stored. In such cases, please refer to the help section of your internet browser.
Also note, if you choose not to accept cookies, you can still use some of our services, but their functionality will be somewhat limited.
Be advised, AcousticTunesmith.com advertisers, or web sites that have links on our site, may, on their own, collect personally identifiable information about you.
The information practices of those web sites linked to or from AcousticTunesmith.com are not covered by this privacy statement.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment.
These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year.
If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

Legal Ground for Email Correspondence
Informational or marketing emails sent by AcousticTunesmith.com, such as membership status, course registrations, song evaluations, e-mail promotions, tips, or Special Event notices are sent as a “customer relationship” basis, which is the legal ground for processing any personal data.

From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests.
Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information.

Your Security at AcousticTunesmith.com
The security and integrity of your personal data are important to us. In addition to complying with applicable relevant personal data regulation, we use accepted industry standards, technologies, and procedures, such as firewalls, security software, etc., in order to protect the integrity of your personal data and to prevent any unauthorized access.
However, no system can be 100% secure, and despite our efforts, there is always a risk of unauthorized access to your personal data. By using our Services, you assume this risk.

Remember to sign out of your AcousticTunesmith.com account and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet cafe.
It is illegal and prohibited to willingly give anyone your username and password to access our member’s only sections of our website, virtual meetings, or any part of our services we offer. By use of AcousticTunesmith.com’s website and services you agree to this policy and penalties which may be exacted by the legal limits.
The exception is when a legal guardian is providing supervised interaction for a minor through the legal guardian’s personal information as described elsewhere in this policy.
