2.1. Information That Identifies You: Personally Identifiable Information
We allow you to decide whether you wish to provide us with Personally Identifiable Information. Accordingly, we have structured our Web Site so that you may visit our Site, and review a range of information about bands, musicians other materials relating to the music industry, without revealing your identity or providing any Personally Identifying Information.
One of our goals in creating this Web Site, however, is to enable bands and musicians to post information about themselves and their music (for example, through a MusicSUBMIT Press Kit ("MPK™")), and to enable music promoters and other music professionals to access such postings and book appearances. Therefore, in order to post any such information and book appearances, and in order to access certain other materials or information from our Site, we ask that you register and provide us with contact and other information, as provided below.
2.1.1. Registration Information
To post information on our Site, and to obtain access to certain other materials or information from our Site, we ask that you become a registered user. Our registration forms will specify the information which you must provide in order to enjoy the particular feature, and the information which you may, at your option, choose to provide or withhold. Our obligations concerning, and permitted uses of, any Personally Identifiable Information that you provide during the registration process are set out below.
As indicated above, you may use our Site without registering or submitting any information to us.

For example, if you spend time browsing information on events taking place in Georgia and Florida, this suggests that you may have an interest in events in the Southeast generally. If a number of visitors spend time browsing information on events taking place in Georgia and Florida, this may suggest that we have designed this portion of our Site effectively.
Information concerning our visitors' activities at the Site - which pages they visit, and how long they view these pages, for example - is Aggregate Information. This information does not identify a particular user, but does provide potentially useful data concerning our users' preferences and the efficacy and interest of our Site's features. The manner in which we collect Aggregate Information is set out below.
We collect Aggregate Information about your use of our Site through cookies and similar Internet technologies. "Cookies" are small text files that a web site can use to recognize repeat users, to facilitate the user's ongoing access to and use of the site, and to compile aggregate data to improve the site and focus advertising.

We use your computer's IP address to maintain contact with you as you navigate through our Site. We also may use your computer's IP address to provide you with personalized content. Similar to cookies, your computer's IP address by itself does not identify you personally. We treat IP addresses, therefore, as Aggregate Information, as provided below.

3.2. We Use Aggregate Information Only In Ways That Do Not Identify You
To measure our visitors' interest in and use of various areas of our Site, and for other purposes set out below, we collect Aggregate Information -- which is information that does not identify you.

We may share Aggregate Information, and reports based on
this Information, with third parties unrelated to the Site.

we might report to unrelated third parties (a) the number
of users of our Site; (b) the materials our users review
while at our Site; or (c) the fact that "45% of our users
live on the East Coast." We may charge third parties for
this information, and we may or may not limit the third parties'
