  • We don't ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.

Albu Media Inc. ("Albu Media") operates several websites including albumedia.com. It is Albu Media's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Albu Media collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Albu Media's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Albu Media's visitors use its website. From time to time, Albu Media may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Albu Media also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments. Albu Media only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Albu Media's websites choose to interact with Albu Media in ways that require Albu Media to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Albu Media gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Albu Media are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Albu Media collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Albu Media. Albu Media does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Albu Media may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Albu Media may monitor the most popular website account on the albumedia.com site.
