TYPES OF INFORMATION GATHERED
When you register at NuHitz.com, we ask you to provide us with a username, password, email address, and other personal information. In addition to the information you provide us, NuHitz also collects technical information such as IP addresses and the date and time of your visit. Of course, NuHitz collects the information that you choose to provide when you participate in our programs and services.
Information You Give Us: To create a NuHitz account or to participate in special programs, you may be asked to provide certain information that does not personally identify you. For example, you may be asked to provide information concerning your music or other entertainment preferences, career aspirations, special talents, and the like. NuHitz requests this information in order to enhance your online experience and make you aware of new programs, services or offers.
Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many websites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your web browser accesses NuHitz.com (See Section on “Cookies” below).
Private: This information is gathered from members and guests who apply for the various services offered by our site. This information includes, but is not limited to: email address, first name, last name, birthdate, credit card number for payment, bank account number for payment, a user-specified password, mailing address, zip code and telephone number.
Email Communications: We primarily use email addresses submitted by members to verify enrollment and when forwarding anonymous emails from talent page responders. We also compare our enrollment list to lists received from other companies to help avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers. If you do not wish to receive email or other mail from us, just visit NuHitz.com and adjust your account preferences.
IP Addresses: We use IP addresses to measure our site traffic and to help enhance the online experience. Your IP address is not linked to your customer information.
Order Forms: We request information from users on our order forms. When you purchase merchandise from our site, you must provide contact information (such as name, email, and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number and expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill customer orders. If we have trouble processing an order, the information is used to contact you.
Information from Other Sources: For reasons such as improving personalization of our service, we may receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information. For example, we may receive updated delivery and address information from our shippers, or other sources, in order to correct our records and deliver your next order more efficiently.
HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
