Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting the website of Tams-Witmark Music Library Inc.  We provide this Privacy Policy to explain our practices for handling the information we receive through this website.  By visiting tamswitmark.com, you agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy and our site Terms of Use, as it may be amended from time to time.

1.    Types of Information Collected

We collect two types of information about our users through this website:  Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.  Our primary goal in collecting and using either type of information from you is to provide you with an efficient experience while using our website.

A.    Personally Identifiable Information:  This refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are, such as your name, physical address, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number, the name, type and size of your organization and information about your proposed performances.  We only collect Personally Identifiable Information online when you specifically provide it to us, such as when you send us email messages, submit forms to us or transmit similar information to us.  If you have any questions about the information you provide to us or if you would like to review and correct information you submitted in the past, please contact us for assistance.

We primarily use your Personally Identifiable Information to provide services to you such as offering price quotes and information on the availability of specific rights.  We also use Personally Identifiable Information to enhance the operation of our website by; to fill orders; to improve our marketing and promotional efforts; to statistically analyze website use, which may involve sharing data you have given us with third-party analytics firms, to improve our product and service offerings, for example; and to customize our website’s content, layout, and services.  We may use Personally Identifiable Information to deliver information to you and to contact you.  We may also use Personally Identifiable Information to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems and enforce our agreements with you, including our Site Terms of Use, Sales Terms and Conditions, and this Privacy Policy.

B.    Non-Personally Identifiable Information: This refers to information we obtain through your use of our website that does not by itself identify a specific individual or organization.  Examples of Non-Personally Identifiable Information include the Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) of the website that you just came from before visiting ours, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address (a number string that identifies the computer associated with your browsing session).  

We use Non-Personally Identifiable Information primarily on an aggregate basis so we can better understand our customer demographics and improve the design and content of our website.  Additionally, we may use Non-Personally Identifiable Information on an individual basis.  For example, by using the IP address associated with your browsing session, we may suggest shows and materials that may be of interest to you or hold shows and materials in your “shopping basket” while you continue to browse our website or in between visits.

2.    Release of Information

We do not sell, trade or rent your Personally Identifiable Information to others.  We do provide some of our services through third parties who use your Personally Identifiable Information to deliver their services.  For example, we must release your credit card information to the card-issuing bank to confirm payment for products and services purchased from us, and we must release your address information to the delivery service to deliver products that you ordered.  The use of your information by our service partners is governed by the privacy policies of those service partners, and is not subject to our control.  Additionally, we will disclose information upon receipt of a court order subpoena or other legal process, [and we reserve the right to disclose information in order to cooperate with a law enforcement investigation or government inquiry that does not involve a subpoena or other compulsory process.]  We reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies or other appropriate authorities any activities (or associated information) that we suspect may be unlawful.

If we are acquired by or merged with another company, or sell substantially all of our assets, your information may be transferred to the acquirer or merger partner as part of such a transaction, may be combined with other databases and may become subject to a different privacy policy.  In this event, we will attempt to give notice to you, via email and/or website posting, before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

3.    Marketing Contacts

We may, from time to time, contact you by phone, send you direct mail or email regarding our products and services or special promotions.  If you do not want to receive such communications, please tell us when you give us your personal information.  Additionally, you may, at any time, easily edit your account information by contacting customer service in order to no longer receive such communications.

4.    Security of Information

Unfortunately, no data transmission can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.  As a result, while we make efforts to protect your information, you acknowledge that the security, integrity and privacy of any and all information and data we obtain from you, or that is exchanged between you and us through this website, cannot be guaranteed.

5.    Privacy Policies of Third Party Sites

Our website may contain links to third party websites with different privacy policies.  We have no control over the privacy policies of third party websites and we are not responsible for the policies or practices of third parties.

6.    Age Restrictions

Although our website is designed for the enjoyment of musical theatre lovers of all ages, you must be at least 18 years old to submit any Personally Identifiable Information or to place orders for the products and services we offer.  We do not knowingly collect, use or disclose Personally Identifiable Information about visitors that are under 18 years of age.

7.     Amendment

We may change this privacy policy from time to time, and once a change is made, all customer data will be handled pursuant to the updated privacy policy.  If the change is minor, we ordinarily will not notify you.  If the change is significant, we will send a notice to your email address (if we have a current address on file for you) and/or by placing a prominent notice on our website.  Your continued use of our website after a change to our privacy policy represents your consent to the change.
