Registration and Use of Information
Passive Collection of Information
In addition to the information that you actively provide to Guitars, such as what you provide when you register for Guitars' Email News Service, Guitars collects information about how you interact with our site. Guitars collects passive information for purposes such as testing and improving a user's experience at the site and for compiling broad aggregate demographic data and related usage data for Guitars' internal purposes. The types of passive information include, but are not limited to, your IP address, which type of browser you are using, where you go on our site and how long you stay on any part of our site. We may also track how you interact with our site, by assigning a random string of numbers and characters to your session. Passive information does not identify you to Guitars by name, and Guitars does not link your IP address to your personally identifiable information.
Collection of Information from Children--Guitars abides by federal law and the guidelines set up by the Federal Trade Commission regarding youth privacy. As such, Guitars will not knowingly collect any personal information from young people under the age of 13, unless Guitars provides notice that such information is being collected and obtains verifiable parental consent.
