COPPA Notice

Broadjam provides a place on the web for music fans of all ages to get involved with the new and emerging music scene. We offer fans opportunities to listen to and download music, and also to interact with musicians and discuss industry news with other members. Visit our About Us page to learn more about Broadjam and our mission.

Broadjam takes protecting the privacy of our members very seriously. We have a formal privacy policy and have created a special process for people 12 years old or younger who are interested in becoming members of Broadjam. This procedure is designed to protect the privacy of your child and to comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA") and related rules.

To gain access to Broadjam's products and services, we ask people to register to become members of Broadjam. The registration process begins when a person electronically indicates to us his or her age. Parents, if your child indicates that he or she is 12 years old or younger, we will ask your child to provide his or her name, email address, your name, your email address, and your phone number. Subsequently, we will email you a message with instructions regarding how to set up a Broadjam account for your child. If you opt not to activate your child's account, all information collected in the registration process will be purged from our system.

    • 2. How We Use the Information

    • In order to establish a more personalized relationship, we will also use member information to determine what services they truly value. Broadjam may combine information about your child that we have with information we obtain from business partners or other companies. We will not, without your consent, sell our customer e-mail address list to third parties but may use our lists to notify your child of specials and products offered by others that we think your child may find worthwhile. We will endeavor to ensure that only authorized employees of Broadjam Inc. will have access to your child's personal information, and all employees of Broadjam Inc. have been required to read our security policies upon their employment whether they are authorized to access your personal information or not. For your child's information and protection on the Broadjam Inc. site and on the Internet in general, keep in mind that whenever your child voluntarily discloses personal information on message boards, through e-mail, or in chat areas, that information can be collected and used by others. Similarly, if your child posts personal information in public places, your child may receive unsolicited e-mail messages. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, Broadjam Inc. reserves the right to disclose user information when required by law, or if we have reason to believe that someone is causing injury to or interference with our rights or property, or the rights and property of others.

Broadjam trains its employees on our privacy policy guidelines and makes our privacy policy available to our business partners.

      Broadjam uses Secured Sockets Layer (SSL) for secure transmissions. SSL applies encryption between two communicating applications, such as your PC and the server. Your name, other personal information, and all credit cards and other payment information that you transmit to us will be protected by 128-bit encryption technology, provided your browser is properly configured and your computer is operating properly. The SSL technology requires that you have a reasonably current browser that is capable of supporting 128-bit encryption. Current browsers such as these will activate the appropriate security features when you enter an online transaction through this site.

    • 4. Collection of Information by Third-Party Sites and Sponsors

    • Broadjam does not share its members' individually identifying information with any third parties or sponsors. Although Broadjam may provide aggregate, statistical data to responsible advertisers and other third parties, the aggregate information does not include data from which the identities of any member can be determined. It is important to note that the Broadjam Inc. site contains links to other sites, and that those sites may not follow the same privacy policies as Broadjam Inc.

These links can also be from advertisers, content providers and/or partners who may use Broadjam Inc.'s logo and/or style as a result of a co-branding agreement yet they may still not follow the same privacy policies as Broadjam Inc.
