Information Collection Technologies

Our use of Cookies: Music for Rhymes uses a technology that is commonly known as “cookies.” A cookie is a file our server writes to your hard drive that contains a small alphanumeric identifier. We use the identifier in a cookie to help us manage and report on your interaction with the Service. Through cookies, we are able to collect non-personally identifiable information that we use to improve the Service, keep count of return visits to our website, collect and report on aggregate statistical information, authenticate your login credentials, or manage multiple instances of the Service in a single browser. We may also collect other data such as the page or site that referred you to the Service, the date and time you visited the Service, and your current IP address. The cookies we place on your hard drive are known as “first party cookies.”

We use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your browser’s “help” documentation. If you do not accept first party cookies you may still use our Service, but your ability to use some areas of our website, and the ability to stay logged in will be limited.

Beacons and tracking pixels: Music for Rhymes and tracking-utility partners employ a technology known as “beacons” or “tracking pixels” (each, a “Beacon“). A Beacon is a small one-pixel-by-one-pixel clear image that is embedded in HTML content, and is about the size of a period at the end of a sentence. When HTML content containing a Beacon is rendered, the Beacon transmits anonymous, non-personally identifiable information to a server, such as a numeric count, unique identifier, or IP address. Music for Rhymes use Beacons to help us better manage content on our Service. For example, we may place a Beacon in HTML-based emails to let us know which emails recipients have opened, or on a webpage to count the number of unique visitors to that page. The use of a Beacon allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and of our marketing campaigns.

How We Use The Information We Receive or Collect

In General: In general, Music for Rhymes may use your Registration Data and other non-personally identifiable information we receive or collect for the following purposes:
