Since our founding in 1876, J.W. Pepper® has treated our customers with respect and loyalty. Our customers have rewarded our efforts by making J.W. Pepper® the world's largest retailer of printed music. Buying from Pepper® means buying from someone you trust. This tradition continues today.
Your Personal Information:
Pepper® does not collect any personal information on visitors to our Web site(s) (http://www.jwpepper.com, www.PianoAtPepper.com) unless the visitor chooses to provide that information to open an account, place an order or take advantage of information services we provide. If information is provided by the user for these purposes, we will use it only for internal purposes.
Today, internet browser software (for example Firefox, Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer) automatically sends to visited web sites anonymous information such as the internet domain name the user came from and which browser software version the user has. This does not include personal identifying information such as the visitor's e-mail address or name. Operators of internet sites sometimes use this anonymous statistical information to decide what web site features are popular and which aren't, which can be likened to the process of TV ratings. Pepper® may choose to collect and use this information in similar analysis of overall or "aggregate" web site use, but remember, unless you choose to provide us with personally identifiable information, your visit to our web site is anonymous. Even if you are a Pepper® customer who has chosen to give us your name and address to open an account, we do not connect that information to statistical studies on web site usage.
If you prefer to set your browser to reject all "cookie" files, our web site will still function normally for information and searches, but you will experience the lack of ability to track the contents of your order basket (a new order basket will begin with each item that is added).
Use of Information:
Today many web sites are supported to a large degree by advertising revenue. J.W. Pepper® is not. Our web site exists to provide our customers with the world's best online service in printed music and related products. Customer information is not supplied or sold to third parties, unless J.W. Pepper® is required to do so by law. In this case J.W. Pepper® will supply information to the parties identified by law as the recipients of the information.
Identifiable and/or non-identifiable information or data also may be supplied (1) to another party with which Pepper® enters or reasonably may enter into a corporate transaction, such as, for example, a merger, consolidation, acquisition, or asset purchase, or (2) to a third party (a) in response to a request by or on behalf of any local, state federal, or other form of legal department of body, whether or not pursuant to a subpoena, court order, or other form of legal process or (b) if determined by Pepper® in its sole judgment that such supply of information id appropriate to protect the life, health, or property of Pepper® or any other person or entity.
Customer online accounts:
Pepper®'s online services include the ability of our customers to monitor the progress of their order, shipping status and billing information. Pepper® keeps this information secure by limiting access to customers who have registered.
Credit card information:
Credit Card information may be transmitted by customers to Pepper® via secure encryption technology at the customer's option, and is thereafter kept in our mainframe computer, behind the Internet "firewall" that restricts access from the Internet. In order to further customer security, credit card numbers are not stored for future use by the customer, and must be re-entered with each new purchase.
Transmission over the Internet:
Information transmitted to any web site travels via the interconnected network of computers called the Internet. While Pepper® has implemented measures to protect customer privacy, once information reaches our web site computer, users who may have concerns about the privacy of their information have the option of placing orders using our toll-free telephone and fax numbers, or via mail:
Toll-free telephone: 1-800-345-6296
Toll-free fax: 1-800-260-1482
Mail: P.O. Box 850, Valley Forge, PA 19482
Customer Access to Data and Ability to Correct Personal Data:
Customers may review and request correction and/or deletion of information in their account at any time using the "My Account" feature on the Pepper® Web site.
Email advertising Opt-in and Opt-out:
Customers who have opened Pepper® accounts may choose to subscribe (Opt-in) to J.W. Pepper® Online Music Clubs (there is no charge for this service) which from time to time send information on new products via e-mail. Pepper® may also add existing customers to an e-mail advertising list. Either way, customers who have received e-mail from Pepper® may cancel their e-mail Music Club subscription at any time (Opt-out) by accessing the "My Account" feature on the Pepper® Web site.
Customers under the age of 16:
It is Pepper®'s policy not to knowingly sell to or collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 16.
