Welcome to the website connectsongs.com (the "Site") and related platforms, and services available on or from the Site (the “Services”) owned by CONNECT Songs and operated by Sentric Music Limited (together with their affiliates, successors, and assigns hereinafter referred to as “our”, “we”, or “us”).
The Site is a platform which opens up a direct worldwide collection network to ensure users’ songs are registered with performance rights organizations (“PRO's”) which will result in royalties being paid efficiently into users’ Site accounts (“Accounts”). Registered users may access their Accounts to view and manage royalty payments, update user information regarding their songs, update user information pertaining to performances, update information regarding YouTube plays and radio and TV placements, and submit music for sync opportunities.
INFORMATION COLLECTED AND USED BY US
When users register with the Site, we collect user submitted personal information such as name, mailing address, email address, and telephone number. We use that information to authenticate users and to send notifications to users relating to, without limitation, the Services.
As is standard practice on many corporate websites, we also log non-personally-identifiable information, including IP address, profile information, aggregate user data, and browser type, from the Site. This data is used to improve the website services, to analyze trends, to administer the Site, to track users' movements around the Site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We will not use the information collected to market directly to that person. This non-personally-identifiable information may be shared with third-parties to provide more relevant services and advertisements to users. User IP addresses are recorded for security and monitoring purposes.
In addition, we uses pixel tags - tiny graphic images - to tell us what parts of the Site have been visited or to measure the effectiveness of searches customers perform on the Site. Pixel tags also enable us to send email messages in a format that users can read. And they tell us whether emails have been opened to assure that we are only sending messages that are of interest to our users.
We may also use a user’s email address to send updates, or news regarding the Services. We may send email messages which use a "click-through URL" linked to content on the Site. When a user clicks one of these URLs, they pass through our web server before arriving at the destination web page. We track this click-through data to help determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked simply avoid clicking text or graphic links in the email.
We may also collect information for market research purposes to gain a better understanding of our users and thus provide more valuable service. We also collect information regarding user activities on our Site, and on related websites. This helps us to determine how best to provide useful information to customers and to understand which parts of our websites and Internet services are of most interest to them.
In cases where you use a mobile device to access our sites or use or applications, we may receive information about the location of your device. We may use this information to develop, deliver, and improve our products, services, and other offerings.
We use the information that we collect to develop, deliver, and improve our products, services, and other offerings.
Our Site does not respond to "do-not-track" settings in users' web browsers at this time. However, there are various ways to opt out of interest-based advertising, such as TRUSTe’s Ad Choices, the Network Advertising Initiative’s Consumer Opt-Out Page, or you can also visit Google's Ad Settings to manage the ads Google serves.
USING SOCIAL FEATURES OF OUR SERVICES
The information you allow us to access varies by application and SNS, and it is affected by the privacy settings you and your friends establish at the SNS. You can find out more about these settings at the SNS where you access our applications.
If you choose (opt in) to use one of our social features, you may be asked to log into a SNS, such as Facebook, through our application. The SNS may provide Sentric with the following information:
Your SNS user ID.
Your profile picture or its URL (if available).
The user IDs and profile pictures of the people you are connected to on the SNS, such as your Facebook friends.
Contact information (such as your name and email address).
Demographic information (such as your gender and your date of birth).
Your physical location and that of your access devices.
Other information you provided to the SNS, such as occupation, interests, hobbies, music preferences, biographical information, and potentially any and all information that you agreed the SNS or other party could provide to us when you use our applications.
We link this data to a user ID that we assign to you. When a SNS sends us the user IDs and profile pictures of your friends, we check to see which of your friends also have chosen to use the same social feature you selected. If your friends have not chosen to use our social features, we do not retain their user IDs or other information about them. If your friends have opted in to use the same social feature you selected, then we link that information to you so that you can enjoy our social features with those friends. We will update the list of friends linked to your user ID each time you log back into our social feature.
While using one of our social features, you may be able to see your friends’ profile pictures and their most recent use of the feature. Similarly, when your friends are using the feature, they may be able to see your profile picture and your most recent use of the feature. You may be able to invite your friends to join you in a social feature, such as by posting a message to your Facebook wall. You are never required to use our social features in order to use our applications.

THIRD PARTY ADVERTISING
Site user accounts are secured by user-created passwords. We take precautions to ensure that account information is kept private. We use reasonable measures such as encryption to protect private information that is stored within our database against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction, and we restrict access to such private information to those employees who need access to perform their job functions, such as our customer service personnel and technical staff. Among these measures, when you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our order forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer (SSL) technology, which creates an encrypted connection between you and our systems. Once we collect your credit card or debit card information, it is stored encrypted on restricted-access computers that are not directly accessible via the Internet. Please note that no method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure, however, and we cannot guarantee the security of user account information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of member information at any time. Users are urged to also take precautions to protect their personal data by changing passwords often using a combination of letters and numbers, and using a secure web browser. For any additional information about the security measures we use on the Site, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
