We may collect the above information from all visitors to, and users of, our Sites. If you do not want Music Choice to have access to this information, please do not visit or use our Sites.

  • Cookies and Web Beacons Information
    • When you access the Sites, Music Choice will also place a “cookie” on your device. A cookie is a small amount of text that is stored on your device and enables our servers to recognize your device when you return. We use cookies to store information, such as your user ID or device identification number, so that we can avoid burdensome and repetitive requests for information and to compile data regarding usage of the Sites. Some of the cookies that we use may be Flash cookies or Adobe cookies. While they are harmless, they may contain certain Personal Information and depending on your browser and plug-ins these cookies may not normally be deleted when your cookies are deleted. Please check your browser and plug-ins to determine where these types of cookies are stored and how they may be deleted. We may also use cookies or other similar tracking technology to collect other information regarding the usage of our services, such as data regarding the number of users of a service, and the number of times a service is accessed. For more information on cookies, including instructions on how to disable them, please refer to your browser’s website. But please be advised, disabling cookies will prevent Music Choice from providing certain services to you.
    • Web Beacons (also known as “clear gifs,” “web bugs” or “pixel tags”). “Web Beacons” are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to allow us to count users who have visited certain pages of the Sites and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns. When used in HTML-formatted e-mail messages, web beacons can tell the sender whether and when an e-mail has been opened. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on web pages.

3. Business Purpose for Collecting/Selling Personal Information:

In the last 12 months (that is, the 12 months previous to January 1, 2020), Music Choice’s business purposes for collecting and/or selling Personal Information of consumers are as follows:

  • To contact you if you win a sweepstakes or giveaway to fulfill the terms of that promotion (for example, this means that we may share the information for prize fulfillment purposes with mail carriers)

  • To verify your identity for purposes of complying with a CCPA Request to Know/Request to Delete from you
  • To help us understand the activity on our Sites

  • To report viewing to our content providers and to video programming distributors (such as your cable or telco TV provider), but in each case only on an aggregated and anonymized basis, which is not a disclosure of consumer Personal Information
  • To verify your e-mail address, mobile phone number, or device as part of the Music Choice services (for example, an adult setting up a profile for a child will be contacted for consent purposes pursuant to COPPA)
  • To use social media account information to personalize your experience on our website and on the third-party social networking websites, plug-ins and applications, and/or engage with our content on or through such third-party social networking websites, plug-ins and applications,
  • To tailor your experience on the Sites and/or otherwise customizing what you see on the Sites or the Music Choice services

  • To create marketing analyses and reports showing how Music Choice users, as collective groups, interact with our services, and develop reports that help us and other strategic third parties determine what interests Music Choice users, as a group (such reports will not contain any Personal Information about you)

4. Categories of third parties with whom Music Choice shares Personal Information:

In the last 12 months (that is, the 12 months previous to January 1, 2020), Music Choice has shared Personal Information of consumers with the following types of third parties:

  • Service Providers. These are third parties who help us maintain our Sites and provide other administrative services to us (such as tracking and maintaining and analyzing data, sending customer communications on Music Choice’s behalf, and entry prize fulfillment for contests, sweepstakes and other promotions). They may also assist us in fulfilling a service to you (such as if you choose to watch a video on the Sites, we may share certain Personal Information (including identifiers) in order to provide the program to you). On a going forward basis, our Service Providers may not use Personal Information for any other purpose than to provide the services for which they are responsible to Music Choice.
  • Advertisers. Several Music Choice services and Sites are ad-supported. We share certain Identifiers and consumer viewing data with our advertisers and advertising platforms to eliminate repetitive ads and to serve you ads that may be of interest to you based on your viewing habits.

As of January 1, 2020, Music Choice will not share California consumer Personal Information with advertisers and advertising platforms (that is, all California consumers will be automatically “opted-out” of such sharing).

  • Content Providers. We share certain Identifiers and consumer viewing data with our content providers, but in each case only on an aggregated and anonymized basis, which is not a disclosure of consumer Personal Information. Content providers are companies that provide Music Choice with audio and video content for further distribution to consumers in exchange for a license fee paid by us, and the provision of this data is required as part of Music Choice’s reporting and license fee payment requirements.
  • Video Programming Distributors. We share certain Identifiers and consumer viewing data with video programming distributors (for example, the cable or telco TV provider to whom you subscribe for TV content) with whom we have contracts, but in each case only on an aggregated and anonymized basis, which is not a disclosure of consumer Personal Information.
  • Promotional Partners. We share certain Personal Information with third parties who help us promote and/or sponsor a given sweepstakes, giveaway or other similar promotion or event, but only with your consent. As of January 1, 2020, Music Choice will not share California consumer Personal Information with such promotional partners.

Although such sharing has not occurred in the last 12 months, it is possible that at some point in the future Music Choice might have to share your Personal Information in the following limited circumstances:

  • To comply with the law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary in order to conform to the requirements of law or comply with legal process or a search warrant served on us, to detect, suppress or prevent fraud, to protect and defend our rights or property, including the rights and property of Music Choice and the Sites or to act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of our end users.
  • To investigate or prevent actual or suspected loss or harm to persons or property.
  • To an organization in the case of a breach of an agreement of contravention of law, or as otherwise required or permitted by applicable law.
  • In connection with a proposed or completed acquisition, merger or sale (including transfers made as part of insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings) involving all or part of Music Choice or as part of any corporate reorganization or other change in corporate control.

Per the foregoing definition, which includes making available and disclosing information, and because Music Choice has interpreted it broadly in favor of the California consumer, in the last 12 months (that is, the 12 months previous to January 1, 2020), Music Choice has sold the following Personal Information of consumers.

D. Children Under Age 13

1. General.

While many sections of our Sites are designed with users of all ages in mind, others are intended to be used mainly by children. We respect your right as a parent or guardian to understand Music Choice’s information practices regarding children, including the types of Personal Information we may collect from children, the uses to which we may put that information, and whether and with whom we may share that information. We abide by the federal Children’s Online Protection Act (COPPA) and follow these procedures when collecting/using Personal Information of children. This section of our Privacy Policy explains our information collection, disclosure, and parental consent practices with respect to information provided by children under the age of 13 (“child” or “children”). In any instance where we ask for age and determine the user is age 12 or under, we will send an email to a parent or guardian email address before we collect any Personal Information from the child. If we do not receive parental consent within a reasonable time, we will delete the information collected from the child in connection with that activity and the parent/guardian contact information associated with that child. If you believe your child is participating in an activity that collects Personal Information and you or another parent/guardian have NOT received an email providing notice or seeking your consent, please contact us at [email protected]. If we discover that we’ve unintentionally collected information from a child in a way that doesn’t meet COPPA requirements or comply with this Privacy Policy, we will delete the information immediately.

2. Collecting and Using Children’s Information

Here are some examples of when Music Choice collects children’s data:

  • When a parent/guardian sets up an account or profile for a child.
    • Before an account or profile can be set up for a child on the Sites, a parent or guardian profile must first be created. When the parent/guardian then sets up a child profile, Music Choice collects the child’s birthdate to identify the profile as a child’s, and the child’s user name selected by the parent/guardian. Music Choice strongly encourages creation of a user name that excludes any Personal Information.
  • When we collect Identifiers and other Personal Information.
    • When children interact with us, certain information may automatically be collected as described in Section A. of this Privacy Policy, both to make our Sites more interesting and useful to children and for various purposes related to our business as disclosed in Section A. above. A list of Personal Information, including Identifiers we collect, is listed in Section A.1. of this Privacy Policy. Examples include the child’s IP address or mobile device identifier, the frequency with which the child visits various parts of our Sites, and information regarding the television provider. This information is collected by Music Choice using technologies such as cookies, web beacons, and other unique identifiers (which we reference and explain in Section A.2. of this Privacy Policy). The data we collect from a child’s profile is principally used for internal purposes, in order to:
      • provide children with access to features and activities on our sites and applications
      • customize content and improve our sites and applications
      • conduct research and analysis to address the performance of our sites and applications
      • generate anonymous reporting for use by Music Choice

This data may also be anonymized and aggregated with other users’ data and provided by Music Choice or a third party service provider to our content providers so that we may license the content we include in our services, and to our third party advertisers in the same anonymized and aggregated manner for general advertising purposes as otherwise explained in this Privacy Policy. Personal Information of children is not collected, nor is it shared with third parties, without a parent’s or guardian’s explicit consent. As of January 1, 2020, and consistent with Music Choice’s treatment of other California consumers’ Personal Information hereunder, California children’s Personal Information will not be “sold” as defined by the CCPA.

3. Additional Disclosure.

In addition to the collection and disclosure described in Section D.2. of this Privacy Policy (see directly above), we also may share or disclose Personal Information collected from children in a limited number of instances, including the following:

(i) We may share information with our service providers if necessary for them to perform a business, professional, or technology support function for us.

(ii) We may disclose Personal Information if permitted or required by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we also may disclose Personal Information collected from children (A) in response to a law enforcement or public agency’s (including schools or children services) request; (B) if we believe disclosure may prevent the instigation of a crime, facilitate an investigation related to public safety or protect the safety of a child using our sites or applications; (C) to protect the security or integrity of our sites, applications, and other technology, as well as the technology of our service providers; or (D) enable us to take precautions against liability.

If Music Choice wants to collect children’s data for any other reason than those disclosed in this Privacy Policy, we will contact the child’s parent or guardian for consent in advance.

4. Revocation of Parental Consent.

In addition to the specific rights of California consumers set forth in the beginning of this Privacy Policy, at any time, parents/guardians can refuse to permit us to collect further Personal Information from their children, and can request that we delete from our records the Personal Information we have collected in connection with that child’s account or profile. Please keep in mind that a request to delete records may lead to a termination of an account/profile, membership, or other service.

We use the following method to allow parents/guardians to access or change a child’s Personal Information, or revoke consent for us to collect further Personal Information from their children:

Here are the steps to take on the mobile application:

  • Sign-in to the Parent/Guardian profile with which the child (KIDS) profile is associated
  • Click on the “Profile” icon [Add profile symbol here] in the upper right corner of the mobile application
  • Select “KIDS Profiles”
  • Select “Update Profile”
  • Select “Delete Profile”

Here are the steps to take on television:

  • The Parent/Guardian profile that the KIDS profile is associated with must be selected and active
  • Select the KIDS profile you wish to delete
  • Arrow down with your remote and select the “Trash” icon
  • Enter the PIN for the Parent/Guardian profile
  • Confirm that you wish to delete the selected KIDS profile by choosing “Yes, Delete Profile”

We use the following method to allow parents/guardians to delete the Personal Information that we have collected from their children in connection with that child’s account or profile: Send an email to us at [email protected]. Please reference “Policy/Children” in the Subject line of your email. A valid request to delete Personal Information will be accommodated within a reasonable time.
