Use of Information Obtained by Endclub.com
When you register with Endclub.com, you create your own profile and privacy settings. Your profile information, as well as your name and photo (optional), are displayed to all potential visitors of Endclub.com. We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding new services offered by Endclub.com that we think you may find valuable.
Profile information is used by Endclub.com primarily to be presented back to and edited by you when you access the service and to be presented to others permitted to view that information by your privacy settings. In some cases where your privacy settings permit it (e.g., posting to your wall), other Endclub.com users may be able to supplement your profile.
Endclub.com may send you service-related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the service. For instance, if a friend sends you a new message or someone posts you a note, you may receive an email alerting you to that fact.
Generally, you may opt out of such emails by editing your profile settings – click ‘Edit Profile’ from your profile page, though Endclub.com reserves the right to send you notices about your account even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications. Endclub.com may use information in your profile without identifying you as an individual to third parties. We do this for purposes such as aggregating how many people like certain artists or musical genres and personalising advertisements and promotions so that we can provide you Endclub.com. We believe this benefits you. You can know more about the world around you and, where there are advertisements, they're more likely to be interesting to you. For example, if you say you like Techno, we might serve you an advertisement highlighting the release of a new Techno album. But we wont tell the advertiser who you are.
