Security:

AudioNow takes reasonable measures to help protect information about you from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. Please understand, however, that no security system is impenetrable. Like other companies, AudioNow cannot guarantee 100% the security or confidentiality of the information you provide to us. Consequently, while we endeavor to safeguard your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure, we do not warrant or guarantee the absolute security of any personal information you transmit to, from or through the Site. In particular, email sent to or from the Service may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email. If you share your computer or mobile device or use a computer that is accessed by the general public, remember to sign off and close your browser window when you have finished your session. This will help to ensure that others cannot access your personally identifiable information. In the event of a breach of the confidentiality or security of your personally identifiable information, we will notify you as required by law, if reasonably possible and as reasonably necessary so that you can take appropriate protective steps. We may notify you under such circumstances using the e-mail address(es) we have on record for you or through alternative means. You should also take care with how you handle and disclose your personally identifiable information. Please refer to the Federal Trade Commission’s Web Site at http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/ for information about how to protect yourself against identity theft. Please note that once you leave the Service, whether independently or via links from the Service, the privacy policies of the site to which you migrate will apply. This Privacy Policy applies to your interactions with our Service only.

Cookies.
Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject cookies, but note that doing so does not necessarily affect third party flash cookies used in connection with our Service. For more information about disabling flash cookies, see http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/security. Please note that if you choose to remove or reject cookies, this could affect the availability and functionality of the Service. In addition, many web browsers support Do Not Track technology. If you enable Do Not Track, AudioNow will not use information about your web viewing activities to tailor your online experience on other Service operated by AudioNow. Note, however, that our third party advertising providers may continue to use information about your web viewing activities to tailor advertising to your interests across different Service even when you have Do Not Track enabled in your browser.

Push Notifications.
With your consent, we may send promotional and non-promotional push notifications or alerts to your mobile device. You can deactivate these messages at any time by changing the notification settings on your mobile device or within our mobile applications.

Children.
We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of 13. We do not intend that our Service be used by children.

If we are advised in writing that we have inadvertently received or collected personal information from a child under 13 years of age, we will remove such information from our database.

Your California Privacy Rights.
In addition to the other rights described in this Privacy Policy, California law permits residents of California to request certain details about how their information is shared with third parties for direct marketing purposes. Under the law, a business must either provide this information or permit California residents to opt in to, or opt out of, this type of sharing. You have the right to submit a request to AudioNow and receive the following information within 30 days of its receipt of that request: (1) the types of personal information disclosed to third parties during the immediately preceding calendar year, (2) the names and addresses of third parties that received the personal information, and (3) if the nature of a third party’s business cannot be reasonably determined from the third party’s name, examples of its products or services. You are entitled to receive a copy of this information in a standardized format. Information provided will not be specific to you individually. All such requests must be in writing and sent to us at support@audionow.com. AudioNow permits California residents to opt out of having their information shared with third parties for direct marketing purposes. If you are a California resident, you may request this information once per calendar year by writing to us at support@audionow.com. In addition, please see the section on “Cookies” above for information regarding our “Do Not Track” policies.
