WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DOES Ultimate Vocal Group GATHER?
Information You Give Us
We receive and store any information you provide, including personal information,
when you register for membership, request additional information from us, participate
in a sweepstakes or survey, post information or Member Content on the Site, communicate
by e-mail, telephone or otherwise interact with us. Personal information includes
your name, address, e-mail address and other personal data ("Personal Information.")
We collect Personal Information that is reasonably necessary to comply with your
requests and with Ultimate Vocal Group’ legitimate business interests. You can choose
not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to post Member
Content or participate in certain Site activities or use certain useful Site features.
Of course, any Personal Information you include in Member Content you submit will
be displayed and published on the Site and available to all visitors to the Site.
Information Gathered Automatically
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us.
For example, like many Web sites, we use "cookies" and "clear gifs"
to obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses one of our
Sites, or when you are provided the opportunity to complete surveys, participate
in a sweepstakes or survey, or open or respond to any newsletter or other e-mail
you may have requested.
Briefly, "cookies" are small files that we transfer to your computer's
hard drive or your Web browser memory to enable our systems to recognize your browser
and to provide convenience and other features to you, such as recognizing you as
an existing customer or previous Site visitor. "Clear gifs" are tiny graphics
with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and may be used to track
the online movements of Web users or to let us know if you have opened an e-mail
that we sent you.
Examples of the information we collect and analyze in this manner include the Internet
protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet; computer and
connection information such as browser type and version, operating system, and platform;
your behavior on the Site and related services, the URL you come from and go to
next (whether this URL is on the Site or not.) The cookies and clear gifs that we
use do not contain and are not tied to personally identifiable information about
You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although in
that case you may not be able to participate in certain Site activities, post Member

DOES Ultimate Vocal Group SHARE THE INFORMATION IT GATHERS?
Information about visitors to our Web sites, including the this Site is an
important part of our business and we take steps to maintain the privacy and security
of such information against unauthorized access and use. We generally use such information,
including your Personal Information, to improve our services and the Site, and to communicate with you, if you have authorized
such communication. We may also share such information as described below.
Aggregated Research Data
We produce research reports and other information and data about online shopping
and visitors to our Web sites. Such information and data is based upon aggregated,
anonymous information about hundreds of thousands of Web site visitors and does
not include personally identifiable information about individuals.
From time to time, we employ other companies and individuals to perform various
functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages,
sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists,
analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links
(including paid listings and links), processing credit card payments, and providing
customer service. Such third parties have access to information you provide, including
your Personal Information and may use such information to perform their functions,
but may not use or disclose it for other purposes.
Sometimes we send offers to selected groups of customers and visitors to our Web
sites on behalf of other businesses. When we do this, we do not give that business
your name and address. We send the offer directly to those customers and control
the information used to make the offer and do not share the list or any information
about our customers with the other business. However, please understand that if
you do receive this type of information from us and choose to take advantage of
it, the other business may then learn information about you because only customers
with certain characteristics may have received the offer.
There are, however, circumstances in which we may share the information we collect
about you (as described above) with other companies in order to provide you with
access to products and services and to serve you effectively. We require these companies
to adhere to our privacy standards and to use this information only for the limited
purpose for which it was shared. We do not allow them to disclose it to others without
our prior approval.
You can opt-out of receiving such special offers as provided under our “Opt-Out”
Other Corporate Entities
We share much of our data, including personal information about you, with our subsidiaries
and joint ventures that are committed to serving you throughout the world. To the
extent that these entities have access to your information, they will treat it at
least as protectively as they treat information they obtain from their other users.
Our subsidiaries and joint ventures follow privacy practices no less protective
of all users than our practices described in this document, to the extent allowed
by applicable law.
Again, you can opt-out of receiving such special offers as provided under our “Opt-Out”
As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy stores, subsidiaries,
or business units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of
the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any
pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise
as described above.) Also, in the unlikely event that Ultimate Vocal Group or substantially
all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the
Protection of Ultimate Vocal Group and Others
We release Personal Information when we believe release is appropriate to comply
protection or investigation; or protect the rights, property, or security of Southside
Partners, our users, or others. Ultimate Vocal Group cooperates with law enforcement
inquiries, as well as other third parties to enforce laws. Therefore, in response
to a verified and legitimate request by law enforcement or other government officials
relating to a criminal investigation or alleged illegal activity, we can (and you
authorize us to) disclose your name, city, state, telephone number, e-mail address
and other information without a subpoena. Without limiting the above, in an effort
to respect your privacy and comply with our obligation as a good corporate citizen,
we will not otherwise disclose your personal information to law enforcement or other
government officials without a subpoena, court order or substantially similar legal
procedure, except when we believe in good faith that the disclosure of information
is necessary to prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss or to report suspected
Due to the existing regulatory and legal environment, we cannot ensure that all
of your private communications and other personal information will never be disclosed
limiting the foregoing), we may be required to disclose personal information to
the government or third parties under certain circumstances, or third parties may
unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Therefore,
although we use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, we do not promise,
and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications
will always remain private.
HOW SECURE IS INFORMATION ABOUT ME?
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. We also
use a secure server hosting location, firewall protection and controlled access
to protect your data. All transmissions between our secured server and our corporate
computer systems are done through private networks rather than through the Internet.
We also have reasonable security measures in place to protect against loss, misuse
and alteration of your information under our control. While no system is completely
foolproof, we take the security of your personal information seriously, and our
security measures are designed to protect that information in a responsible manner.
However, you should be aware that any communication via the Internet, and security
measures in connection with such communication, is not failsafe or foolproof, and
there is always a possibility that data may be lost or intercepted by unauthorized
parties during such transmission or after receipt. You agree that Ultimate Vocal Group
shall have no liability whatsoever in connection with such lost or intercepted data.
From time to time, Ultimate Vocal Group will send newsletters and other e-mail to
members and others who have agreed to receive such e-mails. You can always choose
not to receive e-mail from Ultimate Vocal Group. Each of our e-mail messages contains
a link or instructions at the bottom of the e-mail for the purpose of adjusting
your e-mail subscription preferences. If you do not want to receive e-mail from
us, please follow the instructions in any e-mail you receive or in the "Opt-Out
section below to contact us and be removed from our e-mailing list.
Ultimate Vocal Group is opposed to unsolicited commercial e-mail ("spam").
If you receive any unsolicited e-mails from spammers, please be assured that Southside
Partners did not provide your e-mail address to such parties (except as you have
otherwise authorized.) This does not mean that we can prevent spam from happening
on the Internet. Unfortunately, spammers obtain e-mail addresses in a number of
devious ways, including when you respond and ask to be taken off a spam e-mail list
and in some cases by just generating e-mails to millions of random e-mail addresses
in the hopes of getting a few "live" ones. If you believe that you have
received unsolicited e-mail from us, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
WHAT CHOICES DO I HAVE?
As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, although that
might prevent us from personalizing our services for you or may prevent you from
participating in or taking advantage of certain useful Site features.
We will retain in our files information you have requested to delete in some circumstances,
Furthermore, such prior information is never completely removed from our databases
due to technical and legal constraints, including stored "back up" systems.
