Bad Endorsement cares about your privacy. This privacy statement tells
you what information we collect on our web sites and how we use it. If

WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT
There are many places on our site where you can share your personal
information with us, and where you can communicate with others.
Some parts of the site give you the opportunity to register with us,
and sometimes registration is required before certain site features
can be used. Our registration forms may request your contact
information (such as your name, email address, mailing address, etc.),
demographic information (such as your country, gender, etc.), and
profile data (such as your music preferences, entertainment practices,
etc). You may be assigned a site username and/or password. For our
internal purposes, we use this information to communicate with you,
provide the services you have requested, and to provide a more
personalized experience on our sites. For example, your registration
may allow you to use and post to site message boards, create site
profiles, etc. We use aggregate demographic and profile information
about our audience in order to improve our service for research
purposes, marketing/promotional purposes and/or for industry reporting
purposes, among others. By visiting our sites, you affirmatively
consent to our collection and use of your data.
Our registered users and customers may receive newsletters, email
communications, or communications through other channels for, among
other purposes, the promotion and marketing of a product or service
from our Bad Endorsement site. When there is a separate sign-up for
newsletters, we ask for contact information such as name and email
address, and, sometimes, demographic and profile information. By
visiting our site, you affirmatively consent to our collection and use
of your data. We use this information in the same manner as we use the
contact information in the Registration process described above. We
may offer our users the choice whether to receive mailings from others
that we think will be of interest. Recipients of our mailings can
unsubscribe by following instructions that may appear at the end of
email communications. Note that in order to keep our registered users
informed about the operation of our services, we may send emails and
announcements that are needed for the proper functioning and
administration of our sites and service.

feedback). We may retain your emails and other information you submit
to us for our internal purposes, and to help us to serve you better.
Communications with Friends = We may offer features where you can send
information to others, such as e-cards or ?Tell A Friend? features. We
will use the contact information you enter for your friends to send

Interactive and Community Features = Our site may offer interactive
and community features, such as message boards, chat, email accounts,
short message service (SMS), instant messaging, profiles, personal
homepages, etc. All information posted or sent through these features
may be publicly available, and you should be aware that when you
voluntarily disclose personal information (e.g., user name, email
address, phone number) through these features, that information can be
collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited
communications from other people. By accessing these features and
disclosing personal information, you affirmatively consent to the
distribution of your personal information as described above. Users?
posts may be publicly and/or internally associated with their

sweepstakes and surveys at our site. When you enter or participate in
them, we request contact information from you (such as your full name,
email address, mailing address, and telephone number) and may also
request demographic or profile information. We will use the
information you provide for the purpose of conducting the promotion
(for example, to contact you if you have won the contest). We may also
use the information to send you newsletters and other information we
think may be of interest to you. Recipients of our mailings can
unsubscribe by following instructions that may appear at the end of
the email communication. Any personal information we collect may be
associated with registration information. We may share aggregate
information with others. We may sometimes partner with sponsors in
offering contests, sweepstakes or surveys, and may share (provide and
receive) information with them. By entering or participating in such
