Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

Since the Al Bell Presents website is designed to bring you the best music – and video – on the Internet, it’s important to highlight some Terms of Use, as well as a Privacy Policy that protects you and the people whose content is presented. We’re not going to use a lot of legal language and words like “thereto” and whereas”; what we do want to do is explain – in plain English – what’s most important about this website, and how you use it.


  • If you fill out a registration form to download music or buy any kind of music, we will only use this information to send you information about other music or something else we believe you will be interested in. We won’t abuse this, and we will NEVER give or sell your email address to another company or person. We intend to make the Al Bell Presents website a “spam-free” zone.
  • If you found Al Bell Presents through a link on another website, we may let that site know that they sent you to us. Don’t worry; we’ll still keep your registration and email information private. Other than that one case, we won’t share any information that identifies you as an individual with any other third party. Not ever.
  • If/when we have a community or social network application in this website, whatever personal information you post is your responsibility. We can’t be responsible for what happens to that information, so be smart about what you post.
  • We are required by different rights organizations to track the music played that is played through our Internet radio channel(s) so we can make sure that the artists are paid. However, we will never report on what you individually are listening to.
  • To personalize advertising we may pass along your age, gender, geographic region, or other information – but NEVER YOUR NAME – to our advertising service provider so the ad server can personalize the ads for you. We will never send any information that identifies you as an individual.
  • Our advertising system uses cookies to keep track of the ads you’ve already seen and to target ads to what we hope are your interests. If you turn off cookies on your computer, it may affect the way you can navigate through the site and listen to the music.
  • We take great care to ensure that any personal information you store on the Al Bell Presents website is secure and safeguarded at all times

Third-party information provided to us

Partners: We may receive information about you from third parties, including other websites, retailers, or service providers through which we provide access to registration for the Al Bell Presents website, among others. It is possible that these Partners provide us with a user/member name that you already use in connection with that Partner’s products or services or that you or it have otherwise pre-selected as part of the promotion.

Automatic Data Collection

Copyright Tracking: Al Bell Presents uses software that is designed to protect the copyrights associated with the tracks you listen to. In order to make sure that artists and copyright owners receive applicable royalties, this software identifies and counts the songs you have accessed. We use this data to report and pay royalties and for internal analysis, and we share this data with certain Partners for their own analysis. We do not share your personal usage data with any third parties. We may use your personal usage data for a variety of Al Bell Presents services-related purposes including, without limitation, for displaying advertising to users of the free ad-supported version of the Al Bell Presents online channel(s) and website.
Cookies: We use what are commonly called “cookies,” a small data string our server writes to your hard drive, which allow Al Bell Presents to identify you as a valid registered user or subscriber so that we can deliver music to you, to ensure that no one else can sign on simultaneously with your account from another computer or device, and to help us serve you better based on your registration preferences. We also may use cookies to collect non-personally identifiable information regarding your visits to help us facilitate any promotions or surveys that we provide as well as the delivery of advertising to users of the Al Bell Presents website and online channel(s). In addition, we may also use cookies in connection with a sign-in feature that allows you to save your email address and password each subsequent time you sign in and to track your use of free trial features.

Performance tracking: We sometimes use cookies, as well as other tracking technology, within the promotional emails that we send to our registered users and subscribers. These performance tracking devices help us to track whether an e-mail recipient has completed an event, such as signing up for a free sample or service. Such information is non-personally identifying and collected on an aggregate level. We sometimes utilize third-party service providers to help us track the activity within our Al Bell Presents services. These third parties may use temporary cookies and/or web beaconing technology to facilitate such tracking, but the data would not be tracked in a personally identifiable way. Third parties who
