- We donít share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We donít store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.

It is Vintage HiFiís policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Vintage HiFi collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Vintage HiFiís purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Vintage HiFiís visitors use its website. From time to time, Vintage HiFi may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Vintage HiFi also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Vintage HiFi does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Vintage HiFiís websites choose to interact with Vintage HiFi in ways that require Vintage HiFi to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Vintage HiFi gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a user account on vintagehifipgh.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Vintage HiFi Ė by purchasing products, for example Ė are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Vintage HiFi collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitorís interaction with Vintage HiFi. Vintage HiFi does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Vintage HiFi may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Vintage HiFi may monitor the most popular products on the vintagehifipgh.com site. Vintage HiFi may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Vintage HiFi does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Vintage HiFi discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Vintage HiFiís behalf or to provide services available at Vintage HiFiís websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Vintage HiFiís websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Vintage HiFi will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Vintage HiFi discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Vintage HiFi believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Vintage HiFi, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Vintage HiFi website and have supplied your email address, Vintage HiFi may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with whatís going on with Vintage HiFi and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Vintage HiFi takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
