This Privacy Policy describes the information that we collect from users of our website (this site and Musicbeez mobile applications, the “Service”) as part of the normal operation of our Service, and how we use and disclose this information.

1. Information collection and its use
We collect personal information from you to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient, and a customized experience. We only collect personal information about you that we consider necessary for achieving this purpose. In general, you can use the Service without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. The Service is a public forum. You should be aware that profile information which you voluntarily transmit online in a publicly accessible forum such as this Service may be viewed and used by others without any restrictions.
2. Profile and Contact Information
When you register an account with Musicbeez, we require you to provide access credentials either in the form of an email address and password or by authentication using another third party service, such as Facebook. Once you are logged-in, your User ID (First name, Last name), but not your email address, will be visible to the public.

There are certain optional information that you may provide us, like additional profile information. In case you create your Musicbeez account by connecting through another service, we may use public information from that connected account to help complete your Musicbeez profile. Profile information on your profile page is available publicly on our Service. You may modify or remove any of the information in your Profile (except your email address) at any time by logging into your account and making the desired changes. If you change or delete any of your personal information, we will remove the old or deleted information from public view; however, we may keep such information archived beyond this point in time.
