Privacy Policy

Atlanta Violins respects your privacy and is committed to protect the personal information that you share with us. Generally, you can browse through our website without giving us any information about yourself. When we do need your personal information to provide services that you request or when you choose to provide us with your personal information, this policy describes how we collect and use your personal information.


Collection of Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to: a first and last name; email address; a home, postal or other physical address; other contact information; title; birth date; gender identity; occupation; industry; other information when needed to provide a service you requested, such as credit or debit card information. When you browse our website, you do so anonymously, unless you have previously indicated that you wish Atlanta Violins to remember your login and password.


We do not automatically collect personal information, including your email address. We do log your IP address, the Internet address of your computer, to give us an idea of which part of our website you visit and how long you spend there. But we do not link your IP address to any personal information unless you have logged in to our website. Like many other commercial websites, the Atlanta Violins website may use a standard technology called a cookie to collect information about how you use the site. Please go to Cookies and Tracking Information below for more information. Atlanta Violins collects personal information when you register for an Atlanta Violins account, when you use certain Atlanta Violins products or services, when you participate in an online survey, when you ask to be included in an email or other mailing list, when you submit an entry for a sweepstakes or other promotions, or when you submit your personal information to Atlanta Violins for any other reason. Access to certain Atlanta Violins web pages requires a login and a password. Unless you request deletion of your personal information as specified below, your personal information may be retained by Atlanta Violins.



When personal information is collected, we will attempt to inform you at the point of collection the purpose for the collection. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that the site uses to track the pages you have visited, but the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Some parts of the Atlanta Violins website may use cookies to track user traffic patterns in order to determine the usefulness of our website information to our users and to see how effective our navigational structure is in helping users reach that information. If you prefer not to receive cookies while browsing our website, you can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies and refuse the cookie when your browser alerts you to its presence. You can also refuse all cookies by turning them off in your browser, although you may not be able to take full advantage of the Atlanta Violins website if you do so. You may be required to accept cookies in order to complete certain actions on our website. You do not need to have cookies turned on, however, to use or navigate through many parts of our website, except access to certain Atlanta Violins web pages that may require a login and password.


Electronic Communications

When you send e-mails to us or communicate with us electronically in other ways, you thereby consent to receive communications from us electronically or by other means available. We will communicate with you electronically, by telephone, or by facsimile. It is further understood that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communication be in writing.


How We Use Information Collected

Atlanta Violins may use collected information for several general purposes: to fulfill your requests for certain products and services, to personalize your experience on our website, to keep you up to date on the latest product announcements, software updates, special offers or other information we think you would like to hear about either from us or from our business partners, and to better understand your needs and provide you with better services. We may also use your information to send you direct marketing information or contact you for market research. 


Information Sharing and Disclosure

Atlanta Violins does not share collected customer information with any third parties for solicitation or marketing purposes, though we may utilize store-account based third-party platforms to conduct our own direct communication with you, our customer. In the event that an established account goes into arrears, we may also provide your information to a third-party collection agent or law enforcement agency, subject to applicable law. Inside Atlanta Violins, data is stored in controlled servers with limited access. If you are a registered Atlanta Violins user, you can review your personal information by accessing your account information on the Atlanta Violins website. If you are an existing in-store customer just signing up for online access, you may need to request to have your online account linked to your store account.  Your Atlanta Violins online account information is password-protected for your privacy and security. Atlanta Violins safeguards the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and managerial procedures.  Our store procedures are PCI compliant in order to keep credit card information safe.  In applicable areas of our website(s), Atlanta Violins uses industry-standard SSL-encryption to enhance the security of data transmissions.  Our in-store POS software uses token-based encryption to manage stored payment accounts.  While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information against all possible contingencies.  We urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure browser.

Some of these third-party sites may be co-branded with an Atlanta Violins logo, even though they are not operated or maintained by Atlanta Violins.
