The following statement is submitted by Tantor Media It includes our policies regarding data collection, information sharing and privacy.
You can access our web site home page and browse our site without disclosing your personal data.
We collect the personal data that you may volunteer while using our services. Tantor Audio is the sole owner of the information collected on this Web site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement.
We request information from the user on our order form. Here a user must provide contact information (e.g., name, telephone and shipping address) and financial information (e.g., credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill customer's orders. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user. The user will have the option for us to retain the order information to be used for future orders. To do so the user is required to create a username and password. Tantor does not require the user to provide demographic information, such as income level and gender, nor unique identifiers such as social security number.
Tantor does not share information about individuals with anyone other than the credit card processors. We use an outside credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. This company does not retain, share, store, or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes. Our business requires us to pay royalties based on the sale of some of the audiobooks and we must report aggregate sales figures to the publishers with whom we work. We do not share any information about individual customers with publishers.
This Web site contains links to other sites. Tantor Audio is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site. We encourage our users to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information.
We send all new members a welcoming email to verify password and username. Customers will occasionally receive information on special deals and new products. The option to not receive these promotions is presented with each of these communications. Our order form has an ‘opt-out’ mechanism so users who purchase a product from us, but don't want any marketing material, can keep their email address off of our lists.
The Tantor Web site takes every precaution to protect its users' information both online and off-line.
