When submitting artists to the database, you may be asked to enter your name, email address, basic location data, or other details to improve the quality of the database. Email addresses are never made publicly visible, and are only used by the database administrator to communicate with artists regarding database matters. Email addresses can also be be used to send messages to the artist on behalf of a database user, but only if that artist explicitly opts-in to the service, via our submission form.
We collect information from you when you fill out our submission form. Occasionally, other pieces of information of an artist's profile will be gathered from other publicly available websites, such as the artist's personal website. Artists can request changes/deletions of any or all information at any time via the submission form.
Information gathered is only used for public display on the website, except email addresses, which are only visible to the database administrator. No information gathered will ever be sold or transferred to another entity.
Google Analytics are used throughout the website. Analytics gathered are for the sole purpose of monitoring traffic and improving the website experience. Users can opt-out of Google Analytics tracking by installing a browser add-on.
The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.
We will notify artists via email, in-site notification, and social media within 1 business day. We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
