You may opt-out of any sharing of certain or all information through Platform Applications on the Privacy Settings page. In addition, third party developers who have created and operate Platform Applications ("Platform Developers"), may also have access to your personal information (excluding your contact information) if you permit Platform Applications to access your data. Before allowing any Platform Developer to make any Platform Application available to you, The Peoples Music Awards requires the Platform Developer to enter into an agreement which, among other things, requires them to respect your privacy settings and strictly limits their collection, use, and storage of your information. However, while we have undertaken contractual and technical steps to restrict possible misuse of such information by such Platform Developers, we of course cannot and do not guarantee that all Platform Developers will abide by such agreements. Please note that The Peoples Music Awards does not screen or approve Platform Developers and cannot control how such Platform Developers use any personal information that they may obtain in connection with Platform Applications. In addition, Platform Developers may require you to sign up to their own terms of service, privacy policies or other policies, which may give them additional rights or impose additional obligations on you, so please make sure to review these terms and policies carefully before using any Platform Application. You can report any suspected misuse of information through the The Peoples Music Awards Platform and we will investigate any such claim and take appropriate action against the Platform Developer up to and including terminating their participation in the The Peoples Music Awards Platform and/or other formal legal action.
We occasionally provide demonstration accounts that allow non-users a glimpse into the The Peoples Music Awards world. Such accounts have only limited capabilities (e.g., messaging is disabled) and passwords are changed regularly to limit possible misuse.
We may be required to disclose user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We do not reveal information until we have a good faith belief that an information request by law enforcement or private litigants meets applicable legal standards. Additionally, we may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to comply with law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the The Peoples Music Awards service or using the The Peoples Music Awards name, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies.
We let you choose to share information with marketers or electronic commerce providers through sponsored groups or other on-site offers.
We may offer stores or provide services jointly with other companies on The Peoples Music Awards. You can tell when another company is involved in any store or service provided on The Peoples Music Awards, and we may share customer information with that company in connection with your use of that store or service.
The Peoples Music Awards Beacon is a means of sharing actions you have taken on third party sites, such as when you make a purchase or post a review, with your friends on The Peoples Music Awards. In order to provide you as a The Peoples Music Awards user with clear disclosure of the activity information being collected on third party sites and potentially shared with your friends on The Peoples Music Awards, we collect certain information from that site and present it to you after you have completed an action on that site. You have the choice to have The Peoples Music Awards discard that information, or to share it with your friends.
Like many other websites that interact with third party sites, we may receive some information even if you are logged out from The Peoples Music Awards, or that pertains to non-The Peoples Music Awards users, from those sites in conjunction with the technical operation of the system. In cases where The Peoples Music Awards receives information on users that are not logged in, or on non-The Peoples Music Awards users, we do not attempt to associate it with individual The Peoples Music Awards accounts and will discard it.
When you use The Peoples Music Awards, certain information you post or share with third parties (e.g., a friend or someone in your network), such as personal information, comments, messages, photos, videos, Marketplace listings or other information, may be shared with other users in accordance with the privacy settings you select. All such sharing of information is done at your own risk. Please keep in mind that if you disclose personal information in your profile or when posting comments, messages, photos, videos, Marketplace listings or other items , this information may become publicly available.
