Privacy Policy

DEUGENE MUSIC DISTRIBUTION ’s Privacy Commitment

We ask for only the least amount of information necessary, gathering only what we believe is essential for doing business, or for the specific transaction at hand.

The goal of this policy is to make explicit the information we gather, how we will use it, and how we will not. This policy is unfortunately longer than we would like, but we must unambiguously address all the relevant cases. We will try and keep the language simple and direct as much as possible.

This Privacy Policy is divided into three parts:

Part I – Information DEUGENE MUSIC DISTRIBUTION collects and controls

This part deals with how DEUGENE MUSIC DISTRIBUTION collects and uses information about website visitors, potential customers, users of DEUGENE MUSIC DISTRIBUTION's products and services, and others who contact DEUGENE MUSIC DISTRIBUTION through forms or email addresses published on or linked to our websites.

Part II – Information that DEUGENE MUSIC DISTRIBUTION processes on your behalf

This part deals with how DEUGENE MUSIC DISTRIBUTION handles data that you entrust to DEUGENE MUSIC DISTRIBUTION when you use our products and services, or when you share any personal or confidential information with us while requesting customer support.

Part III – General

This part deals with topics that are relevant to both Parts I and II, and other general topics such as DEUGENE MUSIC DISTRIBUTION's security commitments and how we will inform you when we change this Privacy Policy.
