1. What personally identifiable information does HIPMIX collect from me?
Hip Muzik collects information in several ways. Some personal information is gathered when you register. During registration, Hip Muzik asks for your name, email address, birth date, gender, zip code, occupation, industry and personal interests. The more information you volunteer (and the more accurate it is), the better we are able to customize your experience.
2. What are cookies and how does Hip Muzik use them?
Remind us of who you are and to access your account information (stored on our computers) in order to deliver to you a better and more personalized service. This cookie is set when you register or ‘‘Sign In’’ and is modified when you ‘‘Sign Out’’ of our services.
Estimate our audience size. Each browser accessing Hip Muzik is given a unique cookie which is then used to determine the extent of repeat usage, usage by a registered user versus by an unregistered user, and to help target advertisements based on user interests and behavior.
Assist merchants linked to Hip Muzik to track visits to and business at their stores, and to process the items in your shopping basket. This information collected by cookies is sometimes called ‘‘clickstream’’ or ‘‘click trail’’ and may also describe which pages you have seen in each merchant’s store.
Measure certain traffic patterns, and your visiting patterns in the aggregate. We use this research to understand how our users’ habits are similar or different from one another so that we can make each new experience on Hip Muzik a better one. We may use this information to better personalize the content, banners, and promotions that you and other users will see on our sites. Advertising networks that serve ads onto Hip Muzik may also use their own cookies. Hip Muzik also collects IP addresses for system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers.
3. How does HIp Muzik use my information?
Hip Muzik’s primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide you, the user, with a customized browsing experience. This includes personalization services, interactive communications,and many other types of services, most of which are completely free to you. In order to provide services free of charge, we may display advertisements. By knowing a little about you, Hip Muzik is able to deliver more relevant advertisements and content, and hence better service, to you.
In our role of delivering targeted advertisements, Hip Muzik plays the middleman. Advertisers give us an advertisement and tell us the type of audience they want to reach (for example, males over 35 years old). Hip Muzik takes the advertisement and displays it to users meeting those criteria. In this process, the advertiser never has access to individual account information. Only Hip Muzik has access to individuals’ accounts. This kind of advertisement targeting is done with banner ads. You will only receive special offers via email from Hip Muzik if you have indicated in your account preferences that you would like to receive them. You can change your account preferences at any time.
Hip Muzik does research on our users’ demographics, interests, and behavior based on the information provided to us upon registration, during a promotion, from our server log files or from surveys. We do this to better understand and serve our users. This research is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis. Hip Muzik may share this aggregated data with advertisers or business partners.
4. Who is collecting information?
When you are using Hip Muzik and are asked for personal information, you are sharing that information with Hip Muzik alone, unless it is specifically stated otherwise. For example, some Hip Muzik services are offered in conjunction with a partner company. In order to provide this cobranded service to you, it is necessary for us to share your personal information with our partner company. If data are being collected and/or maintained by any company other than Hip Muzik, you will be notified prior to the time of the data collection or transfer. If you do not want your data to be shared, you can choose not to allow the transfer by not using that particular service.
Promotions that run on HIPMIX may be sponsored by companies other than HIPMIX or may be cosponsored by Hip Muzik and another company. Some or all data collected during a promotion may be shared with the sponsor. If data will be shared, you will be notified prior to the time of data collection or transfer. You can decide not to participate in the promotion if you don’t want your data to be shared.
Please be aware that Hip Muzik advertisers or websites that have links on our site may collect personally identifiable information about you. The information practices of those websites linked to HIPMIX are not covered by this privacy statement.

In addition, if you indicated upon registration that you are interested in receiving offers or information from Hip Muzik and our partners, we may occasionally send you direct mail about products and services that we feel may be of interest to you. Only Hip Muzik (or agents working on behalf of Hip Muzik and under confidentiality agreements) will send you these direct mailings and only if you indicated that you do not object to these offers. If you do not want to receive such mailings, simply tell us when you give us your personal information. Or, at any time you can easily edit your Hip Muzik Account Information to no longer receive such offers and mailings.

Occasionally these promotion related email messages may include targeted advertisements.
You also have choices with respect to cookies. By modifying your browser preferences, you have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject all cookies you will be unable to use those HIPMIX services that require registration in order to participate.
HIip Muzik does not sell or rent user information to anyone. We will notify you at the time of data collection or transfer if your data will be shared with a third party and you will always have the option of not permitting the transfer.

8. How does Hip Muzik protect my personal financial and health-related information?
Keeping your personal financial and health-related information private is vitally important to us. Knowing that you use certain services or features may help us to offer you better and more relevant content and advertisements. But as with all personally identifiable information, we do not make this available to any third parties without your permission. Any user statistics that we may provide to prospective advertisers or partners regarding financial product or service usage on Hip Muzik are provided in the aggregate only and do not include any personally identifiable information about any individual user.
Please note that if there are places on Hip Muzik site where you can transmit credit card information in order to complete a purchase transaction or for verification purposes. Any time we ask for a credit card number we transmit that credit card number in an encrypted format. We use industry standard, SSL (secure socket layer) encryption.
9. What security precautions are in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of my information?
Your Hip Muzik Account Information is password protected so that you and only you have access to this personal information. You may edit your Hip Muzik Account Information by using your Hip Muzik ID and password.
We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. Hip Muzik will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. Also remember to sign out of your Hip Muzik account and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet cafe.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Hip Muzik cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
10. What about children’s privacy?
Naturally, the safety of children is very important to us. Hip Muzik is a general audience website. Children should always ask a parent for permission before sending personal information to anyone online. Hip Muzik does not share personal information about users under the age of 13 with third parties and we do not sell or rent personal information about any of our users, regardless of age. In addition, Hip Muzik will not send any direct email offers to users who indicate they are under the age of 13.
11. What else should I know about my privacy?
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online, for example on message boards, through email, or in chat areas that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.
Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you’re online.
