We collect and use information about you where we reasonably believe it will help us administer our site or provide products, services or other opportunities to you. Among other things, we use the information we learn about you to help us personalize and improve the experience you have with us, to respond to your requests and to communicate with you. The types of information we collect, retain and use include the following:
Site Use Information
In general you are free to visit our Site anonymously, without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. Our web servers may track and collect the domain names and IP addresses of visitors and this information may be aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent on the Site, pages viewed, etc. We may use this information ("behavior profiles") to measure the use of our Site and to improve the content we offer. We may share with third parties experiential information or other data which does not personally identify users of our Site. This might include artist, product or service preferences of all visitors to our Site, for example.
Personally Identifiable Information
The EPITAPH Web Store
Information you provide through our Store is protected by SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) security technology to encrypt information while it is in transmission over the internet, but any information you provide us on the balance of the Site or by email is unencrypted. Data transmission over the internet is never 100% secure.
While we take steps to protect your personal information and keep it secure, you also play a role in protecting your information. You can help to maintain the security of your online transactions by not sharing your user name, email address, credit card or other information with anyone. We cannot guaranty the security of any information you provide us, and therefore you do so at your own risk.
This Site may make available to you chat rooms, bulletin boards, forums or other community functions. Please be aware that any information you post in any of these community areas immediately becomes public information and EPITAPH is not responsible to protect that information from access by third parties. As a result, please use caution before posting any personal information in any of these community forums. You use community forums at your own risk.
How We Use Your Information
Sharing Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We may share with third parties information, including behavior profiles, which is based on our experiential or other data which does not personally identify any of our users. We may share this non-personally identifiable information with our agents, outside vendors or third parties who perform functions on our behalf (such as providing marketing or customer assistance).
Sharing Personally Identifiable Information
Your California Privacy Rights
EPITAPH may disclose your personal information to our affiliated companies for their use in marketing to you unless you tell us not to. In order to opt out of such sharing or for further information, please contact us at __________. [Note: California law requires that if you share information with any other company – affiliated or unaffiliated – that they will use to directly market to that person, then you must be prepared to disclose to your customers (on their request) the names and address of the recipients of that information and the type of information disclosed. If you provide an “opt-out” of sharing for direct marketing purposes, then your response to requesting customers only has to be that they can opt-out of such sharing with an explanation of how to opt out.
Because of the nature of our business, our products and services are not designed to appeal to children, and therefore we do not knowingly attempt to solicit or receive any information from children. Our terms and conditions of use require that any registration may only be made by those over the age of 16. By using our services, you are representing that you are at least 16 years of age or have the permission from a parent or legal guardian to use our service. If we know that information is being provided by a child under the age of 16, we will not collect the information without parental consent or parent notification, which will include the opportunity for the parent to prevent the use of the information or to prevent the child's participation in the activity. Without parental consent, online information will only be used to respond to an unsolicited request and for no other purposes. We recognize that protecting children's identities and privacy online is important and that the responsibility to do so rests with both the online industry and with parents. We encourage parents or guardians to monitor the use of this Site by children to insure that they are not exposed to material that the parent or guardian may find objectionable. Parents are also encouraged to use parental control capabilities within their internet software to assist in their efforts to limit access to certain sites.

You may choose to remove your email address from our mailing list or to cancel your registration by checking the "Unsubscribe" box on the registration form or on the mailing list subscription form.

While we take reasonable measures to prevent the loss or misuse of the information that you provide to us, including but not limited to, your Personally Identifiable Information, due to factors beyond our control, we do not guarantee that your Personally Identifiable Information or any other information collected by us will be completely secure from misappropriation by hackers or other third parties or from other criminal activities.
