Automatic Collections: For each HTTP (which is what your Web browser generates when you request a page or part of a page from a Web site) request received, we collect and store only the following information:
- the date and time
- the originating IP address
- the type of browser and operating system used (if provided by the browser)
- the URL of the referring page (if provided by the browser)
- the object requested
- completion status of the request
- pages visited
How the Information is Used: We use the information that we collect to measure the number of visitors to the different areas of our site, and to help us make our site more useful to visitors. This includes analyzing these logs periodically to determine the traffic through our server, the number of pages served, and the level of demand for pages and topics of interest.
How Long is the Information Retained: The logs may be preserved indefinitely and used at any time and in any way necessary to prevent security breaches and to insure the integrity of the data on our server.
Cookies: Some of our pages use a feature of your browser called a "cookie." Cookies, by themselves, are not able to extract any personal information from you. This cookie automatically identifies your computer - but not you - to our server when you visit our site. Unless you specifically tell us, Maestro Music Software will never know who you are, even though we may assign your computer a cookie.
Personal Information via Forms: Some of our pages provide forms allowing visitors to submit search engine queries, questionnaires, feedback, or other information. Some of these forms may request personally identifiable information (e.g., name, address, e-mail address) for specific purposes, such as when the submitter is requesting a personal response, or subscribing to a mailing list. All information submitted by visitors is voluntary. We may store non-personally identifiable information we collect indefinitely to help us better understand and meet the needs of our visitors.
Before collecting personally identifiable information, we will prominently disclose:
- why we are requesting the information
- how it will be used
- how long it may be retained
- We will not share any personally identifiable information you give us.
How E-Mail is Handled: By sending us an electronic mail message, you may be sending us personally identifying information. In these cases, we may retain the information as long as necessary to respond to your request or otherwise resolve the subject matter of your email. Please be aware that email is not necessarily secure from interception or misdirection. For your own protection you may wish to communicate sensitive information using a method other than email.
Information Protection: We want to be very clear: regardless of the information being transmitted to us, we will protect all such information consistent with applicable law including, but not limited to, the Privacy Act of 1974 and the Freedom of Information Act.
