Protecting the privacy and security of your personal information is a priority at Allegro Music Center, and we do our best to ensure that your personal information is always handled in a safe and responsible manner in accordance with the following principles:
1. What Is The Personal Information That We Collect?
Personal information is information that can be used to identify, contact or locate you. For example, personal information can include your name, e-mail address, billing address, shipping address, phone number, or credit card information.
2. Why Do We Collect Personal Information?
We collect your personal information in an effort to provide you with a superior customer experience and, as necessary, to administer our business. It allows us to provide you with easy access to our products and services, with a particular focus on the items and programs that may be of most interest to you. For more information as to why we collect personal information, please see the section below entitled: "How do we use your personal information?"
Your personal information also allows us to communicate with you about special offers, promotions, and other marketing programs and news that may be of interest to you.
3. How Do We Collect Your Personal Information?
(a) Information that you provide to us
As a general matter, you can browse in our stores and on our websites without submitting your personal information to us. However, there are a number of circumstances in which you may need to provide us with your personal information.
Making a purchase or placing an order online or in our store
When you make a purchase or place an order in our stores or place an order online without an account, you may need to submit personal information to us.
Creating an online account
You can create a password protected Allegro Music Center.com account to complete your online order, or to save items to an online shopping cart. To create an account, we will ask you to provide us with personal information. If you use your online account to make a purchase, we will use the personal information stored in your account and/or require you to input additional personal information, such as credit card information, to complete your order.
Signing up for Newsletters
You may choose to sign up for free Newsletters filled with store news, new products, special offers, and other promotional announcements. If you do so, we will ask you to make the appropriate selection when creating a new account or in the E-mail Notifications section of 'My Account' on the Site.
Contacting customer service
When you contact customer service, we may ask you to provide, or confirm, personal information so that we can better serve you.

Furthermore, we do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from children under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register for an online account or to post personal information on our websites. No part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13. Should we learn that someone under the age of 13 has provided any personal information to or on the Allegro Music Center website, we will remove that information as soon as possible.

6. How Do We Secure Your Personal Information?
We take significant and appropriate security measures, including physical, technological and procedural measures, to help to safeguard your personal information and to prevent unauthorized access and disclosure. In addition, we use industry-standard technology, such as firewalls and sophisticated encryption and authentication tools in the transmission of certain sensitive personal information, designed to prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to your personal information, and, as technology develops, we intend to take additional measures to improve security.
We want you to feel confident whenever you visit us in our store, on our website or otherwise. When you place orders or access your personal information, we offer the use of a secure server. All credit card information you supply is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted and sent to our credit card processors. While we are focused on the security of your personal information and follow strict standards, processes and procedures that are designed to protect your personal information, we cannot promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information will remain secure in all circumstances. No data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
7. How Do We Respect Your Choices About Your Personal Information?
When you interact with Allegro Music Center in certain ways, you may be eligible to receive certain marketing-related and promotional communications as well as special offers (collectively "Promotional Communications") from Allegro Music Center that may include advertisements from third parties. The most common of these circumstances include:
We don’t want to bother you with unwanted e-mail or other mailings. If, at any time, you wish to no longer receive Promotional Communications from Allegro Music Center or Allegro Music Center.com, please follow the instructions below.
Any account holder can opt-out of the receipt of e-mails by logging in and navigating to the ‘My Account’ section and making the appropriate change under E-mail Notifications. If you do not have an Allegro Music Center.com account, you can remove your name from our mailing list by sending an e-mail to email@example.com stating that you wish to unsubscribe and indicating in the subject line of the e-mail "NO E-MAIL". Alternatively, you may choose to opt-out by clicking on the appropriate link at the bottom of each e-mail and following the instructions. Although we will promptly remove your name from our e-mail list upon receiving your request, it is possible that you may still receive e-mails from us that had been initiated prior to your name being removed from our list.
If at any time you do not want to receive offers and/or circulars from us, you can always remove yourself from our mailing list by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, indicating "NO SNAIL MAIL" in the subject line along with your name, address and zip code. Please note that our mailings are prepared in advance of their being sent. Although we will promptly remove your name from our mailing list upon receiving your request, you may still receive mailings from us that had been initiated prior to your name being removed from our list. You can also contact us by mail:
Hi Key Music, Inc.
Even if you opt-out of receiving Promotional Communications, you may continue to receive e-mails relating to order confirmations, back order notifications, membership information, and/or other business-related communications.
8. How You Can Access Or Correct Your Personal Information?
Allegro Music Center gives you access to a broad range of information about your account and your interactions with the Site for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information. We believe you should have the ability to access and edit the personal information that you have provided to us. During the online ordering process you can review, change, or delete the information that you have submitted. You may also review and make changes to the personal information that is stored in your user account on the Site by logging in and navigating to the ‘My Account’ area of the Site and clicking on the information you wish to change. As we don’t store your credit card account number, there is no need to delete or change it on our system. We encourage you to promptly update your information if it changes.
You may ask to have the information on your account deleted or removed; however, because we keep track of past purchases, you cannot delete information associated with past purchases. Also, as a security measure we "back up" the data stored on our systems, and such prior information cannot be completely removed from our databases. As a result, you should not expect that all of your Personally Identifiable Information will be completely removed from our backed-up databases.
