Privacy Policy

Orion Corporation Uganda (“Orion Corp” or “we” “our” or “us”) owns or controls, and provides access to the Uganda Music Online website, currently located at www.ugmusic.net (the “Website”).
At Uganda Music Online, we are fully committed to respecting your privacy and to protecting any information you provide to us. We treat both privacy and security as a priority and make every effort to ensure that all the information provided by you is protected. This Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) is designed to respect and protect the privacy of all visitors to the Website and is intended to inform you about the way that we treat your personal data.
The Policy explains how our website collects and uses information. We hope that our candour will remove any concerns you may have and will make visiting the Website a rewarding experience.
Although we endeavour to keep you up-to-date on all changes made to the Website, this Policy may be amended from time to time without notice to you. It is your responsibility to read the Policy carefully and review any changes that may have been made.

1. Personal Information

In order to use certain features of the Website, you will need to register. When registering you will be asked to provide an email address and create a username and password. You may also choose to create a more detailed profile of yourself on the Website by submitting additional personal information. Please note that even if you do not provide any additional personal information to the Website (e.g., by adding it to your user profile), if you choose a username that includes or reveals your name or any other personal information, such information may be available to other users of the Website and to the general public. For purposes of this Policy, the terms “personal information” and “personally identifiable information” shall mean all information provided during your initial registration on the Website and during your creation of a user profile, including, for example, your real name, e-mail address, postal address and other location information, your date of birth, your gender and certain other demographic information or information that may enable online or offline contact with you.
Where you upload photographs or other content as part of your user profile, you should be aware that Uganda Music Online is entitled to use those photographs and content in accordance with our Terms of Use. Uganda Music Online discourages users from uploading photographs of friends or other people without their permission.

2. Record Collection

From the moment you register and begin listening to music on Uganda Music Online, we will begin to create and maintain your record collection. This is accomplished by monitoring your activity on the website (i.e. which songs you listen to, which artist’s page you). In addition, your record collection will be affected by other actions you take, such as sending a song recommendation to another user or manually selecting certain songs, albums or artists to be included in your record collection. All of the information that is generated by your activity on the website is fed back into your profile. Uganda Music Online also maintains a central database of information (which may include your personal information). Uganda Music Online doesn’t make any of this information available to any thirds.

3. Location-based Information

We keep track of the domains from which people visit Uganda Music Online, but we cannot see a user’s area code, post code, city or country unless the user chooses to explicitly provide this information to us. If you do choose to include information about your city or country of residence when setting up your user profile, please be aware that such information may be available for viewing by other users of the Website and to the general public.

4. Browser Information

We collect data regarding the users of Uganda Music Online, including: (i) The Internet Protocol (IP) address of the user’s computer.

5. Use of Personal Information

We will use the email address provided by you when you register to contact you from time to time. This may be for security reasons (so that we can check that you are who you say you are), to ask your opinion about the Website, or it may be to keep you updated on the services currently available on the Website and any changes to those services and those that we intend to launch in the future.
Uganda Music Online may also use your personal information and non-personal information to help Uganda Music Online and its commercial partners deliver targeted advertisements, promotions and other similar initiatives to you.

6. Message Boards / Chat / Communications With Other Users

Please note that all personal information you display or communicate using such functionality becomes public information and we are not responsible for any information you choose to make public. We may, but have no obligation to, monitor such traffic via electronic software or otherwise in order to check for obscenity, defamation or abusive language, which we reserve the right to remove at any time. In addition, if you choose to personally communicate or meet with any other Uganda Music Online user by exchanging postal/email addresses, telephone numbers or otherwise via the interactive functionality of Uganda Music Online, you do so at your own risk. Uganda Music Online cannot be held responsible for any consequences which flow from your decision to communicate or interact with other Uganda Music Online users in places or under circumstances which we do not control. We advise you to use extreme caution whenever you post information, socialise or interact with people whom you have met via the internet.
From time to time, you may be able to send to a friend, and a friend or contact may be able to send to you, information about our Website or services (e.g., to provide you with access to a song or message), by clicking on an “E-mail-a-Friend” or similar button on the Website or other third-party websites. In some of these cases (unless you simply forward an e-mail from Uganda Music Online on your own), you, or your friend, may be able to provide your friend’s, or your, name and e-mail address to us. Such information will be treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy and applicable law. If Uganda Music Online receives your email address in this way and you are not an existing registered user of the Website, Uganda Music Online will delete your email address immediately after providing you with the song or message. Uganda Music Online does not collect or store personal information received from third parties.

Please note that we do not disclose personally identifiable information about you, which you have privately provided to Uganda Music Online, to our advertiser partners without your consent.

11. Security

Uganda Music Online endeavours to protect the security of your information as much as we endeavour to protect our own information and network. We employ firewalls and store all of our files and information on terminals which require password access.
You should never disclose your account password to anyone. We use certain security measures to help keep your personal information safe, but we cannot guarantee that these measures will stop any users try to get around the privacy or security settings on the Website through unforeseen and/or illegal activity. Consequently, you acknowledge that there are circumstances in which your personal information may be accessed by unauthorised persons.
Uganda Music Online takes all commercially reasonable precautions to adequately prevent others from freely accessing the information you provide or that we compile. As you are no doubt aware, however, despite these precautions, zealous hackers may wrongfully gain access to this information. Although such unauthorized access is unlikely, we feel obligated to inform you of the risk and advise you that Uganda Music Online is not liable for any damages caused by such unauthorized access.

12. Young People

Children under the age of 13 are not eligible to use the Website and must not attempt to register with Uganda Music Online and/or submit any personal information to us.

However, in the event that we are required to disclose personally identifiable information by a court, the police or other law enforcement bodies for their investigations, regulation or other governmental authority we will make such a disclosure without being in violation of this Policy.

14. Business Transitions

If Uganda Music Online is acquired by another company or sells all or a portion of its assets to another company, or in the event of a merger, it is likely that user information will be a part of the assets transferred. If as a result of such a business transition information is to be collected, used or disclosed in a manner or for a purpose different from that stated above, Uganda Music Online will endeavour to notify all users of such changes beforehand.
