Privacy Policy

The privacy of our users is important to us. As such we have set out this privacy policy for the benefit everyone who visits the website located at http://TheJazzLine.com and all associated services (“The Jazz Line”). Please read this statement carefully before using or proceeding to access our website. Your use of The Jazz Line indicates your agreement to abide by our Terms of Use.

Our Publisher, Mersion Media (“Publisher” or “Us”), is the sole holder of all information collected on The Jazz Line. There are several ways we may collect information for you:

  1. Comments: Users may choose to leave comments on particular articles of interest. The Jazz Line exclusively uses ‘Facebook Comments’, which allows users with an existing Facebook, AOL, Hotmail, or Yahoo (cumulatively, “The Service Providers”) account to comment on one or more articles or content pages on The Jazz Line. No personal information is transferred to the Publisher from the comments that you leave on The Jazz Line. By choosing to leave a comment, users are agreeing to the privacy policies applicable to one or more of The Service Providers. Users understand that by leaving a comment, personal information may be visible outside the context of The Service Providers, such as on The Jazz Line, including but not limited to the name you provided to one or more of The Service Providers. If a comment is found to be in breach of The Jazz Line Terms of Use, then in accordance with The Jazz Line Terms of Use the comment may be removed. Reasonable efforts will be made to contact the user, through The Service Provider, to alert them to the situation.
  2. Mailing Lists: The Publisher may launch a mailing list for The Jazz Line in order to provide subscribers with relevant information, breaking news, or weekly or daily summations of recent content. In order to sign up to receive emails from our mailing list users may be required to submit information including but not limited to a valid email address and demographic information such as location. This information will be used in aggregate form only in order to assess general user interest in various internal and third party products and services, and your personal and contact information will never be passed to any third party. Users who choose to sign up for a mailing list agree to receive regular emails from The Jazz Line.
  3. Other sources: Any information collected from other sources on The Jazz Line, such as competitions or chat forums, will be controlled by the Publisher, and will never be transferred to any third party unless explicitly stated at the information collection point. All information collected from these other sources will be permanently deleted after there is no longer any need to hold the information. For example, upon completion of a competition all losing entries will be immediately and permanently deleted. If the competition was a sweepstakes, winner’s information will be retained for the minimum period required by law before being permanently deleted. Where information is retained, such as on chat forums, you may notify The Jazz Line of any updates, amendments and corrections to previously collected information by Contacting Us. Further, upon your request, The Jazz Line will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete your information.
