The Site may only be used or otherwise accessed by persons 18 years of age or older. See Terms and Conditions, which appears below. If we reasonably believe that someone under 18 years of age has provided us with personal information, we will make reasonable efforts to remove such personal information from our database.

Collection of Your Personal Information

Certain types of information, such as IP Address, browser type, time stamps, etc. may be collected as a part of the sites automatic operations. We also may collect navigational information, including information about links you click, pages viewed, and other navigational actions that take place on the site.

We may combine your visit and navigational information with personal information that you provide. Personal information (e.g., your name, email address, country and password) is collected when you register with us. Additional personal information is collected when you submit music (e.g., address, phone number, band name, band bio, pic, etc).

Use of Your Personal Information

Seven Seas can and will at times collect and use your personal information to operate and improve our sites, to provide customer service, to analyze and improve our products, services and technologies. We also use your personal information in order to communicate with you.

We may send you emails, updates, confirmations, newsletters, etc. If you do not wish to receive newsletter communications, you may follow the “unsubscribe” instructions included within each email communication.

Personal information collected by Seven Seas may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Seven Seas or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities, and by using our sites or services, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country. 

Sharing of Your Personal Information

Seven Seas does not share your personal information with any outside parties or individuals except as disclosed in this privacy policy.

If necessary we may share your personal information with service providers who perform services on our behalf.  Examples of such services would be if we hire other companies to handle the processing of payments, store data, host websites, conduct audits, etc. Those companies will only have access to the personal information they need to provide the service.  Additionally, these companies are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose now or in the future.

Information about our customers, including personal information, may be disclosed as part of any merger, acquisition, or sale of the company and/or its assets, as well as in the unlikely event of insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership, in which personal information would be transferred as one of the business assets of the company. 

We reserve the right to disclose your personal information if required to do so by law, or in the good-faith belief that such action is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process, respond to claims, or protect the rights, property or safety of our company, employees, customers, or the public.

Use of Cookies

Seven Seas uses “cookies” to give you the ability to easily sign in to our services. Cookies contain info that can later be read again by a server with the date and time of your visit and navigational history.

Cookies offer you many conveniences and allow you to save time by eliminating the need to enter the same information over and over.

If you feel the need you can decline cookies by changing the settings on your browser.

Non-Identifiable Information

This website gives you opportunities to submit non-identifiable information, including but not limited to creating playlists.

Security

We use current industry standard technology and security procedures to maintain the confidentiality and accuracy of the information you provide to us and to prevent against its loss or misuse. Although no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and although we will exercise great care to provide a secure transmission, we cannot guarantee that the personal information you submit to us will be free from unauthorized third party intrusion.

LICENSING TRACKS FROM OUR SITE

The Seven Seas Music Licensing Store allows you to purchase licenses to specific tracks for specific uses (each, a "Track"). In order to download a Track, you will be required to agree to the usage terms for the Track and to purchase a license that limits the use of the Track to those exact terms. A PDF file of the license document ("License") will be sent to you and will serve as both invoice and license. The provisions of the License will control your use of the Track and will override any conflicting provisions in these Terms with respect to your use of the Track.

From time to time, Seven Seas may provide you the opportunity to download an MP3 file of the Track for audition purposes only. In this case, Seven Seas grants you a non-transferable, non-exclusive license to store, reproduce (including making a copy onto your computer's hard drive) and use the Track solely for evaluation purposes, to test the Track (including using the Track in animatic and video sequences) or for demonstration to your clients, but only when used in a non-commercial manner.

Except for those uses described above, rates and rights to use must be negotiated before use. All Tracks and all rights not expressly granted in writing remain the exclusive property of Seven Seas.

Unless permitted in the License, you may not:

- Sublicense, re-license, rent or lease any Track

- Copy or publish any Track to a network or bulletin board

- Otherwise distribute or allow any Track to be distributed to or used by anyone other than the authorized users, without prior written consent from Seven Seas

- Use any Track in connection with any form of pornography

- Use any Track in a libelous, defamatory, fraudulent, infringing or otherwise illegal manner

- Use any Track to promote a business that sells or licenses Tracks, or otherwise competes with Seven Seas in any manner

- Ship, transfer or export any of the Tracks into any country or use any of the Tracks in any manner prohibited by any export laws, restrictions or regulations.
