What are cookies, and how are they used to collect information?

Cookies are small bits of information placed on the hard drive of your computer. Cookies remember information about your activities on a website. For example, cookies can store your session for easy sign-in to a website you have previously visited. They enable us to make your visits to the Indian Adventure Records Site more enjoyable. Information about your activities on the Indian Adventure Records Site and other non-personally identifiable information about you may also be used to target the online ads you encounter to those we believe are consistent with your interests.

Third party advertisements displayed in connection with the Indian Adventure Records Services may also contain cookies set by internet advertisers. We do not control these cookies and users of the Indian Adventure Records Services should check the Privacy Policy of the advertiser to understand whether and how it uses cookies.

We may use cookies and similar tools to relate your use of the Indian Adventure Records Services to personally identifiable information obtained from you or a reputable third party and to obtain anonymous aggregated data. For example, if you have asked us to send you information about our upcoming services or promotions, cookie or click stream data about your activities using the Indian Adventure Records Services may allow us to limit the materials we send you to items that we think you will find interesting, based on your prior online activities and preferences.

You can program your computer to warn you each time a cookie is being sent or to refuse cookies completely. However, without cookies you will not have access to certain Indian Adventure Records Services.

Do you collect anonymous aggregated data, and what do you do with it?

Anonymous data is information (originally personally identifiable or non-personally identifiable) that subsequently is used in aggregate form. We may use anonymous data for purposes of research or analysis. We may conduct research on our customer demographics, internet usage, interests and behavior based on personal data we gather. Although anonymous data may be based in part on personal data, it does not identify you personally. Indian Adventure Records may share this type of anonymous data with a variety of third parties, including its affiliates, advertisers and other current and prospective business partners. But because it is anonymous, these third parties will not be able to contact you based on this data.

Indian Adventure Records may display targeted advertisements based on personal information. Indian Adventure Records does not provide any personal information to the advertiser when you interact with or view a targeted ad, although advertisers (including ad serving companies) may assume that people who interact with, view, or click targeted ads meet the targeting criteria.

We may use anonymous data collected for website administration, advertising and promotional purposes, and we may share such information with various affiliated and unaffiliated entities for such purposes. For example, IP addresses are used for the purposes of system administration and to provide anonymous aggregated data to advertisers about the volume of use on the Indian Adventure Records Services. We may also enter into agreements with outside companies that possess the technology that allows us to customise the advertising and marketing messages you receive while using the Indian Adventure Records Services. Your non-personally identifiable information and click stream data about your activities may be shared with these companies so this customisation can be accomplished. Our agreement with these companies restricts them from sharing your information with third parties or using it for any other purpose. Anonymous click stream and demographic information may also be shared with our advertisers and business partners.

Do I have a choice in how Indian Adventure Records uses my personal information?

This Privacy Policy is our primary disclosure to you of when and how your information may be used. At times, however, we may choose or be required by law to provide you with additional notice. In such cases, you will be given an opportunity to notify Indian Adventure Records how it may use your personally identifiable information.

Whether you opt in or opt out of receiving communications from Indian Adventure Records, we reserve the right to send you administrative messages, service announcements, and other similar communications without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them. This is important in case we need to communicate with you about items such as your account, website maintenance and other non-promotional matters. From time to time, you may be given an opportunity to indicate your preferences regarding various account settings, communication preferences or other information related to your account. For example, if you wish to receive additional communications relevant to you, such as alert messages, you will need to elect to receive them. Therefore, please take that opportunity to review and select your preferences carefully.
