Here at the Appreciation Engine we hate spam as much as you do. We'll never sell your information and we promise not to share consumer personal information with anyone.
This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that MusicHype does not own or control, or to individuals that MusicHype does not employ or manage. In addition, the Service contains links to outside sources, both ones we have added ourselves and ones that members have submitted. While we attempt to provide links only to those sites that share our respect for your privacy, we cannot take responsibility for the content or privacy policies of those sites. We encourage you to carefully review the privacy policies of any web sites you visit.
The information we gather from customers enables us to personalise and improve our services and to allow our users to set up a user account and profile that can be used to interact with other users through the Service. In connection with the Service, we request and display some personal information to other users and visitors of the Service, which allows users to identify each other. We collect the following types of information from our customers.
MusicHype automatically collects non-personal information such as the date and time you access the site, the address of the web site you linked to MusicHype, the operating system you are using, the pages read and images viewed, and any content you post to from MusicHype. This is used for administration purposes and to improve our services. Non- personal information can be disclosed to others and permanently archived for future use.
We also uses "cookies", to store a small amount of information on your computer so we can recognise you in future visits.
