Because Watchfire Music wants to demonstrate our commitment to your privacy, we disclose our information practices to the public. Upon reading this privacy statement, you will know:
- What personally identifiable information of yours or third party personally identification is collected from you through the web site
- The organization collecting the information

Information Collection and Use
Watchfire Music is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. The Watchfire Music Website collects information from our users at several different points on our website.
All users on the www.watchfiremusic.com website have the option of completing a registration form. During registration a user is required to give their contact information (such as name, company, email address and what the user is interested in). This information will be used to communicate with the user in the future and tailor information to them. It is optional for the user to provide demographic information (such as title or address) but encouraged so we can provide a more personalized experience on our site.
We send all new registrants a welcoming email. Established members will occasionally receive information via a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the option to not receive these types of communications.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. Once the user closes their browser, the cookie simply becomes inactive. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of our site. For example, the user may not be able to participate in future features on our site, such as Discussion Groups. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
In the future, we may share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we [WATCHFIRE MUSIC] are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.
If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter (via registration), we ask for contact information such as name and email address. A user may choose to opt-out of receiving future emails by simply responding to emails sent or by calling Watchfire Music.
Surveys & Contests
From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name or email address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
This website takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line.
We do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Finally, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment, behind a locked cage.
If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Correction/Updating Personal Information:
If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as your zip code), or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user's personal data provided to us. This can be done by emailing our Customer Support at email@example.com.
Our users are given the opportunity to 'opt-out' of having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for the information.
Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional
materials from our partners may opt-out of receiving these communications
by replying to "unsubscribe" in the subject line in the email or email us
Users of our site are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties. We do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether they should proceed with services that require an outside party, or not.
