What information does Tommy's Guitar Shop collect from you?
In order to better provide you with numerous products and services, Tommy's Guitar Shop collects two types of information about its visitors: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information. Our primary goal in collecting information from you is to provide you with a smooth, efficient, and customized experience while using our site. Any information you provide to us at this site when you establish or update an account, shop online or request information (i.e. name, address, email address and telephone number) is maintained in the strictest confidence. Tommy's Guitar Shop does not share this information with any third parties. Personally Identifiable Information Personal information is requested when you order a product or service, enter contests or sweepstakes, fill out surveys, and send us feedback. Personally identifiable information may include your name, billing address, shipping address, telephone number, email address, and credit card or other payment information. This information allows Tommy's Guitar Shop to provide you with better and more personalized services on our site. Non-Personally Identifiable Information Non-personally identifiable information does not in itself identify a specific individual. We gather certain information about you based upon where you shop on our site in several ways. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. For example, this information may include the Web site's Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web. An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol ("TCP/IP") network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks like the Web use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web, allowing web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet, browse and shop.
Where do we collect information from you and how do we use it?
Our primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide our site visitors with a superior customized online experience. We use the customer contact information to fill orders, contact purchasers to inform them of their order status, to send promotional information, to enhance the operation of our site, and to more efficiently administer our systems.
We gather information in the following ways:
We collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to gather broad demographic information and to monitor the level of activity on our site. We collect information from visitors to our site regarding the URLs they came from, domain types (e.g., .com or .org), their IP addresses, the date and time of their visit or order, the number of visits and orders, the number of visits per browsing session, the server type, the operating system and browser type used to come to the site, the country, state and telephone area code where their servers are located, the pages and page titles of our site that visitors viewed during their visit, whether the visitor's computer is enabled for Java or cookies, browser language, applications and plug-ins, and any search terms entered on our site.
