Communications from the Site
Special Offers and Updates
We send new registrants a welcoming email to verify password and username. Established members will occasionally receive information on products, services, special deals, or a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the option to not receive these types of communications. Please see the Choice and Opt-out sections.
In order for an individual to opt in to receive MJM email communications, we ask for contact information such as name and email address. Out of respect for our subscribers privacy we provide a way to opt-out of these communications. Please see the Choice and Opt-out sections.
On rare occasions it is necessary to send out a strictly service related announcement. For instance, if school functions are temporarily suspended due to inclement weather or if a class is cancelled due to instructor illness, we might send students an email. Generally, users may not opt-out of these communications, though they can deactivate their account. However, these communications are not promotional in nature.
We communicate with users on a regular basis to provide requested services and in regards to issues relating to their account we reply via email or phone, in accordance with the users wishes.
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our Web site.
Third Party Intermediaries
We use an outside credit card processing company to bill for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
In the event MJM goes through a business transition, such as a merger, being acquired by another company, or selling a portion of its assets, users’ personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred. Users will be notified via email and a prominent notice will be posted on misterjohnsmusic.com for 30 days prior to a change of ownership or control of their personal information. If as a result of the business transition, the users’ personally identifiable information will be used in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection they will be given choice consistent with our notification of changes section.
Our users are given the opportunity to opt out of having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for information. For example, our enrollment form has an opt out mechanism so users who commit a transaction with us, but don’t want any marketing material, can keep their email address off of our lists.
Subscribers who no longer wish to receive our newsletter and promotional communications may opt-out of receiving these communications by following the directions provided in the unsubscribe disclaimer at the bottom of every email communication sent by MJM.

We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information.

Surveys and Contests
From time-to-time MJM asks for information from individuals and families via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), as well as demographics and information about your experiences as a student, concert attendee or customer of the MJM. Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information are used for purposes of monitoring or improving services offered by MJM. Participants’ personally identifiable information is not shared with third parties unless we give prior notice and choice. Though we may use an intermediary to conduct these surveys or contests, they may not use users’ personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
MJM takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. When visitors submit sensitive information via the web site, their information is protected both online and off-line.
When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry – SSL.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. Only staff who need access to this information to perform a specific job (for example, a private lessons teacher) are granted access to personally identifiable information. MJM staff are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices and the servers that store personally identifiable information are maintained in a secure environment.
Supplementation of Information
In order for MJM to optimize audience communications, it is necessary for us to supplement the information we receive with information from 3rd party sources.
