Our Commitment to Privacy

Levine Music is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this website you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.

Our Commitment to Children's Privacy

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. Our website is a general audience website, and we do not knowingly collect information about children. Should a child under 13 make known to us his or her personally identifiable information, we will use that information only to respond directly to that child to inform him or her that we must have parental consent before receiving his or her personally identifiable information. We encourage parents of children under 13 to regularly check and monitor their children's use of e-mail and other activities online.

What Information is Collected

For purposes of this Privacy Policy, "personally identifiable information" means information that identifies a particular individual, such as name, postal address, e-mail address, and phone number. When other information, such as e-mail newsletter choices, interests, purchases, and preferences, is directly associated with personally identifiable information, this other information also becomes personally identifiable information.

There are many features on our website for which no registration is required. However, if you are interested in obtaining information, products or services from the Levine Music, or in participating in certain activities on this website (such as making an online ticket purchase or RSVP, making an online donation to Levine Music, or participating in surveys), you may need to provide us with information about yourself. Our registration forms require users to give us contact information that may include name, email address, format preference (HTML vs. text), address, interests, and similar information. We do not request or store sensitive information from our visitors, such as credit card numbers.

In addition to information you choose to provide to us, we also collect non-personally identifiable information through technology to make our website more interesting and useful to you. We collect an IP address from all visitors to our website. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our website, analyze trends, track users' movement, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the website, and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

How we use Information

  • Internal record keeping
  • We may use the information to improve our products and services
  • We may periodically send promotional email about special announcements, emergency closures or other information which we think you may find interesting using the email address which you have provided.
  • From time to time, we may also use your information to contact you for market research purposes.
  • We may use the information to customize the website according to your interests. We never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out.
