Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us. At AlexanderMusic.ca we have two fundamental principles:

• We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
• We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals: (Note: we owe a debt of gratitude to Automattic, the people who made WordPress, who decided to make their privacy policy available under a Creative Commons Sharealike license. This means we were allowed to steal it and repurpose it for our own use. If you’d like to do the same, just make sure to replace references to them (or us, if you like our version better) with ones to you. Also, if you want, you can include a link to Automattic.com (and, perhaps to AlexanderMusic.ca) somewhere on your site. As Automattic puts it, “We spent a lot of money and time on the below, and other people shouldn’t need to do the same.”)

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, AlexanderMusic.ca collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. AlexanderMusic.ca’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how AlexanderMusic.ca’s visitors use its website. From time to time, AlexanderMusic.ca may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

AlexanderMusic.ca also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on blogs. AlexanderMusic.ca only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to AlexanderMusic.ca’s websites choose to interact with AlexanderMusic.ca in ways that require AlexanderMusic.ca to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that AlexanderMusic.ca gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for hosting at  AlexanderMusic.ca to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with AlexanderMusic.ca – by purchasing web hosting or direct email service, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, AlexanderMusic.ca collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with AlexanderMusic.ca does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

AlexanderMusic.ca may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, AlexanderMusic.ca may monitor the most popular sites using AlexanderMusic.ca or use distribution data from AlexanderMusic.ca to help ensure that users of the service are not sending spam. AlexanderMusic.ca may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, AlexanderMusic.ca does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

AlexanderMusic.ca discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on AlexanderMusic.ca’s behalf or to provide services available at AlexanderMusic.ca’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using AlexanderMusic.ca’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. AlexanderMusic.ca will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, AlexanderMusic.ca discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when AlexanderMusic.ca believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of AlexanderMusic.ca, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a AlexanderMusic.ca website and have supplied your email address, AlexanderMusic.ca may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with AlexanderMusic.ca and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. AlexanderMusic.ca takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
