Any passwords, ID numbers, or other special access numbers you might use to access any part of this Site are your responsibility; take care to safeguard them. Link Musicians takes reasonable steps to protect your personally identifiable information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. The encryption used for the Services is a symmetric block cipher, which uses an encryption key of 56 bits.

Children under the age of 13 are not the intended audience for this Site. We operate our site in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, and will not knowingly collect or use personal information from anyone under 13 years of age. You agree you are over the age of 13 when you are using the Site and the Services. We encourage parents to be aware of their children's use of the Internet and discuss what kind of information they are allowed to disclose to web sites.
This Site may actively collect information from its visitors both by asking them specific questions and by facilitating direct communications with us via email, feedback forms, etc. Some of the information that Users submit may be personally identifiable information (this is, information that can be uniquely identified with an individual, such as full name, address, email address, phone number, and so on). In some cases we might collect non-personally-identifiable information that you elect to provide voluntarily, such as gender or zip code. This Site may also offer some features and activities (such as newsletter subscriptions, downloads, etc.) which may require you to submit information in order to receive or benefit from them. You will be informed at each information collection point what information is required and what information is optional.
Like many other web sites, this Site may also collect some information passively as you navigate through the site (that is, this information is gathered without your actively providing the information), using various technologies and means, such as navigational data collection. Navigational data ("log files," "server logs," and "clickstream" data) are used for system management, to improve the content of the Site, market research purposes, and to communicate information to visitors. This Site may or may not use navigational data.
One of the ways information may be passively collected is by the use of Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider so you can access the Internet. IP addresses are generally considered to be non-personally identifiable information, because most IP addresses are dynamic (they change each time you connect to the Internet), rather than static (unique to any one particular User's computer). We may use your IP address to improve or administer the site, diagnose server problems, report aggregate information, or to determine the fastest connection route between your computer and our site.
Another method for passive information collection is by means of "cookies." A "cookie" is a small data text file, which a web site stores on your computer's hard drive (if your Web browser permits) that can later be retrieved to identify you. "Session cookies" are temporary bits of information that are erased once you exit your web browser window or otherwise turn your computer off. Session cookies are used to improve navigation on web sites and to collect aggregate statistical information.
If you do not wish to receive cookies from this Site or any other web site, you can change your computer's settings so that it will no longer accept cookies. Be aware that in some cases, you need to accept cookies from a site to take full advantage of a web site’s services. This is especially true on web sites that require a user ID or a password.
