We at Tanager AudioWorks are all very aware of and sensitive to privacy issues. We get enough spam in our own mailboxes - we don't ever want to add to that problem for anybody else!
Tanager AudioWorks never spams or sells or distributes the information we hold. You will never be spammed by anybody at all as a result of submitting information to TanagerAudioWorks.com. We keep your information very private, and will remove it immediately at your request.
This statement discloses the privacy practices for TanagerAudioWorks.com ("Website"). Because this Website wants to demonstrate its commitment to respecting your privacy and to build users' trust and confidence in the Internet, it has agreed to disclose its information practices. You can expect to be notified of:
- What personally identifiable information is collected
- How the information is used
- With whom the information will be shared
- This Website's opt-out policy
- This Website's policy on correcting and updating personally identifiable information
- This Website's policy on deleting or deactivating your name from our database
How We Collect Information
This Website collects information that falls into one of two categories -- personally identifiable information and aggregated information. Personally identifiable information is information that can be used to identify you. Aggregated information is information that is not associated with a specific user, such as the number of people who visit the Website from various states. We collect personally identifiable information whenever you voluntarily submit it to the Website. Examples of this type information include when you purchase a product, create a user log-in, create a user forum account, or send us feedback. You always have the option of choosing not to reveal this personally identifiable information to us, although certain services may be unavailable if you do not. In the event of a complaint, we may also receive and collect personally identifiable information about you from other parties in our Website or from other users or third parties who may communicate information to us about you in relation to that complaint.
In addition, we collect and store statistics and other information about the online activities of our visitors on an aggregated (collective) basis. For example, we track the number of people who view each page, the order in which pages are viewed, and other information to learn which features are the most popular and to refine our design and marketing efforts.
Information We Gather or Track
Information on general usage and any optional personal details you provide to us will be used to provide you with enhanced features such as customized content, access to our Chat Rooms and message boards, and the ability to participate in any of our Tanager AudioWorks communities. The following are details of the information we collect: Tanager AudioWorks collects data so that we may display personalized content to our visitors. Additionally, usage information may be analyzed so that we can judge our system's performance or execute your customized features. If you make a purchase at TanagerAudioWorks.com, we include you in our list to receive possible email updates about special offers, new products and services, and relevant information. Your computer reaches us via a particular IP, (Internet Protocol), address. This can tell us things like what part of the world you're connecting from, or what service provider you are using.
Your browser offers so-called "cookies" which -- if you allow their use - store small amounts of data on your computer about your visit to any of our sites. Cookies assist us in tracking which of our features you like best. And when you re-visit our site, cookies can enable us to customize our content according to your preferences. However, cookies tell us nothing about you personally unless you specifically give us additional information. Our registration form asks for contact and demographic information used to send news about our products or promotional material from our partners. You will be able to opt-out of receiving any mailings. Demographic information may be used to customize the display of our site to you by showing content that we think might be of interest or related to your past visits. Surveys may ask for contact information or unique identifying information to increase the value of the results. Contests may require contact information or other demographic/personal information in order to determine your eligibility.
How We Use and Disclose Your Information
Except as described below or otherwise indicated, we do not sell your personally identifiable information to third parties. We use your email contact information to provide you with newsletters to which you subscribe. The newsletter you subscribe to will be the ONLY thing sent to you. You can choose to opt out of these newsletter mailings at any time. We never use our membership lists to send spam or advertising emails of any kind. A separate account may be created to use our bulletin boards. The email address there will only be used to send you your bulletin board password if it is lost, or to send important updates about bulletin board functionality. Again, we never use any of our membership lists to send any sort of spam or advertising. They solely send out the information for which the member signed up for. Tanager AudioWorks may assign, sell, license, or otherwise transfer to a third party, your name, address, e-mail address, member name and any other personal information in connection with an assignment, sale, joint venture, or other transfer or disposition of a portion or all of the assets or stock of Tanager AudioWorks.com or its affiliated entities.
Who Can Use Collected Information and How
Feedback is used by Tanager AudioWorks staff. Please be aware that if you voluntarily disclose information online, personal or otherwise, that information can be collected and used by others. For example, using chat, bulletin boards, or your e-mail, if you post personal information online you may receive unsolicited messages from others. Tanager AudioWorks will have no means to control this.
Controlling or Changing Your Information
The member database we maintain is for message board accounts. This database provides clearly marked means of removing an account. This database is never made available to any third party for any reason.

Limits on Our Abilities
We cannot fully ensure that your private communications and other personally identifiable information will not be disclosed to third parties.
