Privacy Policy

We at PEDERSEN’S BAND & ORCHESTRA (A GENERAL PARTNERSHIP) are committed to protecting the privacy of our customers and users of our websites located at www.pbando.com and our affiliated site www.hornsmasher.com.  We recognize our legal responsibility for protecting the privacy of certain personal information about you. When you entrust us with your “nonpublic personal information”, we will always take steps to protect your privacy. (“Nonpublic personal information” means information about you that we collect in connection with your account. “Nonpublic personal information” does not include information that is available from public sources such as telephone directories or government records.) This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) gives you details of our privacy practices, including:(a) what information we collect about you when you use the site;(b) how the information will be used; and (c) your rights with respect to our collection and use of your data.  We may modify these policies from time to time and will provide notice of any major changes by posting a notification of these changes on our website. 

OUR USE OF INFORMATION COLLECTED
When ordering, you will create a personal account. Through this account, you provide certain types of information such as physical address, telephone number, email address, credit card number, expiration date and security code. Without this information, an order cannot be shipped and/or billed. An email may be sent to you, or a phone call made if there is any trouble processing your order. Although our primary method of shipment is USPS Priority Mail, we may use various shipping companies to deliver your order, and a credit card processing company is used to bill you for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store, nor use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes. This site may at times make chat rooms, forums, message boards, and/or news groups available. Please be aware that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information. Caution should be used when deciding to disclose personal information.

OUR CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECURITY PRACTICES
We restrict access to “nonpublic personal information” about you to ourselves (John and Nedra Pedersen, partners of Pedersen’s Band & Orchestra) for the purpose of servicing your account. We do not disclose this information to anyone or any company who may want this information to market or provide products or services to you. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your “nonpublic personal information”.

FORMER CUSTOMERS
We do not disclose “nonpublic personal information” about former customers, except as permitted by law.
