What  information do we collect?
BeatStars.com collects information  in several ways from different parts of our Web site.

BeatStars.com  collects some personal information when you initially sign up for  some of our free services. We may ask for your name, e-mail address,  zip code, and country. The more information you share with us (and  the more accurate it is), the better we are able to enhance and  customize your experience on our site.

In addition to  the former information, we may ask you for personal information at  other times, including (but not limited to) when you make a purchase  through our online store, when you enter promotions or contests and  when you respond to a survey. For example, when you make a purchase  through our online store, we collect several items of personal  information, including your billing and shipping address, telephone  number, credit card information, and any other information necessary  to complete the transaction. For your security, we never store credit  card information on our servers. We transmit credit card information  directly to the third party credit card processor through secure  connections.

Wherever  BeatStars.com collects personal information, we make an effort to  include a link to this Privacy Policy on that page.
