Privacy Policy

Con Spirito Music is committed to protecting your privacy. We use the information collected on conspiritomusic.com to make shopping and purchasing from us easy and convenient for you. We do not sell, rent, or trade any customer personal data to others, and we do not receive or store any customer financial data used in transactions. The following outlines our privacy policy.

Who we are

Con Spirito Music (www.conspiritomusic.com) is the website of music educator, trombonist, and arranger Todd Marchand. Our email address is mail@conspiritomusic.com.

What data is collected and why

When you visit our site: When you view content on conspiritomusic.com, a WordPress-based site, certain data is collected to let us know how many visits our site gets, where our visitors come from, what search terms guide visitors to the site, and what pages and posts are the most popular.

We use the Jetpack by Automattic plug-in to provide us WordPress Stats, including post and page views, outbound link clicks, referring URLs and search engine terms, and country.

As part of collating the above information, Jetpack uses data like IP address, user agent (browser and operating system), visiting URL, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, and country code. However, none of this information is passed to us. For example, we can see in WordPress Stats that a specific page has had 88 views in a day, but we cannot see which specific users viewed that page. Furthermore, the Stats logs, in which this information is stored, are retained for only 28 days.

If you do not want your browsing activity to be tracked, you may activate in your web browser “Do Not Track” (DNT), a feature that asks advertisers and other web software providers to not track individuals’ browsing habits. Our site is enabled to honor visitors’ DNT requests and not track their activity.

Importantly, you can visit conspiritomusic.com anonymously. Only aggregated visitor data is collected; no personally identifiable information is collected when you simply browse our site.

When you view embedded content from other websites: Pages and posts on conspiritomusic.com may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies (read more about cookies below), embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

We use Vimeo to host the demo videos that are embedded on our product description pages. See the Vimeo privacy policy.

We may also embed Youtube (a Google service) videos demonstrating performances of our work. See the Google privacy policy.

When you make a purchase: When you make a purchase from conspiritomusic.com, your personal and financial data are sent electronically and securely to PayPal to enable the transaction. We then receive your contact information (name, address, email, phone) and details of your purchase (items/quantity) to fulfill your order and to contact you, if necessary, following your purchase. The financial data you provide to PayPal (e.g., debit/credit card number) is obfuscated immediately after the transaction, and it is not received or stored by us. For more information on PayPal’s use of personal and financial data, see the PayPal Privacy Policy.

We maintain a list of persons who have purchased from us, including names and e-mail addresses, which we use for occasional e-mailings. If you would like to be removed from our e-mails, contact us at mail@conspiritomusic.com.
